    An update was released for this game recently. Have you downloaded it yet? If so did it help out your game?

When I first started the game I think remember downloading a update. But I think it was a roster update. How do you download the up date?

This is a three man franchise league. When we got to week 17 of the first season and played our games, that was the last time the franchise would save. After reaching the playoffs playing my game the franchise would not save at all. It would freeze up. Then if you try to simulate the playoffs. It would freeze up. After playing with it we were able to get to the end, but when advancing to the off-season it would freeze up. Finally, figured out when we got to pro bowl to save it and it worked no freeze-ups. We were able to advance to the off season after that, did all off-season stuff and got to the preseason. Now when trying to simulate preseason it will freeze up. What the heck.

Fifa 09 manager mode crashes on simulation screen


DUDE- I have played 09 on xbox 360 through 4 seasons three different times with liverpool and each time the same thing happens. it happened to me a 4th time last night. so today i came up with the resolve to solve it. AND I DID!!! basically, if you conduct contract negotiations after the league season is over but you are still playing UEFA/ECC games it will 100% crash your game once you get into the next season once the trade season begins. If this happens it will corrupt your save file permanently destroying the future integrity of the game, like a digital Russian Roulette. To be sure this doesnt happen to your team's save file, keep a back up file safe that you won't adjust right before the season ends. at the end of the season a contract negotiation screen comes up. you need to make sure that when you go to the contract negotiation screen everyone listed on your team who has less than 12 months left on their contract is listed with "the computers" offer to be resigned, therefore extending their own contract based on their terms. you will see all sorts of wild offers, especially if you have been under paying your players. As per the Bosman ruling these guys are treated as free agents during the transfer window, so the game is modeling REAL life. However, if you sign them after the season is over but while you are still playing euro competitions then this will corrupt the save file for free agents. This crashes the game, maybe perhaps because some other team is trying to sign that "Bosman ruling" player on the computers own terms, but he improperly still belongs to your club for less than 12 months. WOOOOOT gonna play another 4 seasons. pass this on. Keep backup saved files at the mid point between transfer windows and right before the regular season games end based on your schedule. ENJOY!!!

Problems playing in 2nd season of Madden 09 Franchise mode.


I think your lens may be very dirty. And alos please tell if the problem is only with this gamne or all the other games as well?
moreover, if your lens is dirty, you'll have to clean it using a lens cleaner, OR get it replaced lens).
I got my PlayStation's lens replaced when it was giving me trouble and all was fine after that.
Best of luck.

GAME FREEZE'S EVERYTIME I PLAY THE MANAGEMENT MODE ON FIFA 09


It is a known bug in the game. EA have not announced a patch for the PS3 version, so I cannot say when the bug will be fixed. 
You can attempt to start the game again, but it is likely you will come across the same bug.

Madden 09 xbox360


This seems to be a wide spread problem with Madden 09. This is not a hardware issue but just bad software programming it seems. Other people have had luck saving after each game. then exiting back to the dashboard then starting the game again. This seems to clear the "memory leak" or whatever is causing the game to lock up.

Game freezing


This is a problem with the game rather than the console. Try cleaning your disc with soap and a soft towel. If this doesn't work, many video rental stores offer professional disc-cleaning services for reasonable prices.
