I have tried a few various ways now but have been unsuccessful, and was woundering if anyone had a good idea. I play the franchise mode, and have recently been in the red of my income. Does anyone have an idea that works? :argue:

I heard somewhere that Ray Lewis is slated to be on the cover of Madden 2005. Maybe they figure that since he was injured last year, it won't happen two years in a row.

And no, I don't have any tips on the money part of the franchise mode. I don't know the game that well.

There are alot of things you can do. There are legit ways, and non legit.


Win. Attendence is a big part of your income. But if you dont win the fans wont come. I usually keep my prices for everything on the max green level, I dont go into the red any where. Plus if you host some playoff games that even more income. And dont waste money. Have some stars, and find cheep guys for special teams, fast guys. You cant teach speed, but they can improve by playing special teams. YOu can try to draft them, but you can also try to sign some after the draft in the mini camp role.

Non legit.

There is a save glitch. When you are the home team, start the game, play a little and save the game. Then shut off the auto save feature. Quit the game and exit out of the franchise mode without saving. Then load it. do the same thing. You will re-earn the same amount you would have earned with one game, every time you save (normal game you make 1 million, save it twice and reload you will make 3 million). You can also save on advertising by buying it before the game, and after the game, dont sim the rest of the week, go put the advesting back to $0, then sim the rest of the week.

If you want more Madden help, you can click on the site in my profile. Im a moderator there. There are a ton of topics, and most of the guys improve their game after reading a couple of posts at our site.

Thanx for the info on Lewis and thanx for the Madden help. When you said dont waste money i just realized my Star QB is paid $44.5m for 4 years. and my tail back is paid $35m. Then i have Roy W. Mike W. and Larry F., Moss retired. But im actually gonna restart and use ur ideas.
