Creating a Franchise from Custom Teams

Postby elguapo » Thu Feb 23, 2017 10:46 am

How To Create A Franchise Out Of Custom Teams
=============================================

Text Tutorial
Spoiler:
1. EXPORT your 32 custom teams.

2. Load the Xmod blank.ros in Madden and IMPORT the exported teams (see Note).
a. Save roster with a different name.

Note: teams will be listed alphabetically and will numbered ascending if you import them
alphabetically.

if you are going to assign teams by conference and division read the following:
Sort column "K" (DISN) from smallest to largest.
Sort column "H" (DGID) from smallest to largest.
assigned the custom teams by conference and divisions by using column "O and P"
(xTDNA and xTLNA).
Sort column "N" (TORD) from smallest to largest,
then import the teams as they are listed in the xTDNA column.


3. Open saved roster in a DB_Editor.
a. IMPORT the Xmod - COACH.csv spreadsheet.

optional: edit the coach spreadhseet with coach names, apperance...etc
before importing the coach table.

4. EXPORT the TEAM table to a CSV spreadsheet.
a. Open the TEAM table spreadhseet.

5. Copy the yellow hilighted columns from the Xmod Franchise.xlsx spreadsheet to your exported
TEAM table.
a. Save spreadsheet.

Note: if you assigned the teams by conference and divisions then also copy the orange
hilited columns (TRV1, TRV2, TRV3). These are the division rivals.

6. Import the saved TEAM table back into your roster using the DB_Editor.
a. Save roster.

7. Load roster in Madden and create a franchise.

Note: training camp is not available for custom teams. If a created team is in the
franchise file then open the franchise file using db_editor v3 and change the
TTYP=0 to TTYP=5 before starting the franchise.


FILEs
===============================================
Xmod blank.ros This roster was created by changing all of the team types to "old time" and
then have Madden delete the teams.

Xmod - COACH.csv In order to create a franchise, teams must have four coaches. Head Coach,
Defensive Coach, Offensive Coach and Special Team Coach.

Xmod Franchise.xlsx Guide to help you assign teams to conference and division and data needed

You know, years ago I wanted to do a franchise with entirely custom teams. I even created all of the teams. It never got off the ground for two reasons: 1. I couldn't figure out how to get them into a franchise; and 2. I HATE the uniform creator in-game, and have no ability to make uniforms myself. With this guide, I suppose that gets rid of my issue #1. Issue #2, however... unless someone would be willing to create uniforms for the teams, or I magically become graphically skilled... yeah, not happening.

I amended information about created teams. Created teams need to be set to back to created team in the franchise fille.

Give it a try and let me know if it worked for you. Texmod could serve as a temporary alternative to the created uniforms.

You know how I feel about TexMod. I always wanted .dat-based uniforms for the custom teams.

That's why I said a temporary option .

These instructions are not just for the xmod but they should work for any roster.

I had a copy of the MAFL mod you sent me a while back and I used that roster to make the franchise.

OK so, a little explanation when it comes to created teams. In order to create a franchise Madden looks for current (TTYP=0). Created teams are set to 5 which will not show up. We need to temporarily switch them to 0 to create the franchise. When you create the franchise you will see the NFL logo for all of the teams. Just select the team or teams you want to control and create the franchise. Save the franchise. Using db_editor v3 load the franchise and reset all of the teams back to created team by setting the TTYP to 5. Save the franchise and load it in Madden. I already did it for you.
