None of us have the features yet as far as I'm aware. There is a rumble, for example, right before a kick, but I'm not sure what that's supposed to tell me. There isn't a rumble, say, before punts though.

@Simba, you can certainly buy the game and play it, see what's what before the update comes out. When it does come out, you'll be ready. That's what I'm doing now.

@SLJ, I would highly recommend using PS4 Remote Play. I have used the new NVDA OCR feature to login to my Origin account and connect my PSN ID to it. Go into settings and there's a checkbox, in the PS4 Remote app, to use keyboard instead of the virtual one. Instead of the virtual keyboard coming up, when Remote Play is connected, a blank textbox will come up that you can type in on your computer keyboard and press enter to submit  it. You can then either press X or enter to go onto the next field.

It's not the best.. hopefully someone can get me an XBox one for Christmas. But then I have to buy Madden, again. sad

Edit: Okay, I tried to make another video, is the game screen still squished in the top left hand corner? I tried maximizing the game screen to see if maybe that'd put it into full screen. Perhaps that's what the issue was...

Hi.
Ok, thanks for the answer, guess I will stretch out my hands for an xBox one the next week or so.
Thing is, I honestly don't know where to start now. Can you give me any tips on how to start, or can I use carrens guide for the game to see what's there yet?
Greetings Moritz.

So guys, I've started to experiment with Ultimate Team today. I actually like it, but probably not for the reason most people do, at least thus far.
The Ultimate Team mode is the never-ending DLC pack sync your money into this mode, mode. That's the part I'm not finding thrilling. The point of the mode is to collect packs of players. For example EA starts you off with a 49ers pack, and you can buy and in some cases earn packs as you level up. These packs can contain players to add to your team, or they can be items that can be equipped which may increase stats of your UT squad, I'm not sure.
Here's the part I'm not finding thrilling. Dynamic menus suck. As with Franchise mode in full control, OCR is a mess with those menus. When the UT tutorial was showing me the lineup screen, I could switch from my offence and defense lineups easily with L/R1, but I couldn't make heads or tales at all of my players, how to add/remove players from slots on offense and defense respectively, etc.
That's kind of the point of Ultimate Team. Get a pack, especially player packs, and add new players to your lineup and create the ultimate team. These aren't just any players actually, they're more like legends and retired players.
Despite the fact that the meat of Ultimate Team isn't accessible due to the shortcomings of OCR, I like these solo challenges. They start off easy, such as crush the cowboys with a final touchdown in the final minute of play, that's the tutorial where you must simply win the game.
The second one, a bit more involved, is to simply rush upfield and gain 30+ yards on offense. I lost that one just because I'm not used to running yet. I just read Darrell's guide though and having just got a touchdown on short yardage on the tutorial challenge, I'm beginning to feel comfortable with it.

Also, my first two trophies earned in Ultimate Team smile

Want to remove the all autotoon, crappy soundtrack from your Madden 18 rotation and replace it with the orchestral sounds like those of Madden 25? Adolis has you covered with the blind player's guide on how to rid your ears of autotoon filth while playing Madden 18. Do it for your sanity if nothing else. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jU_imf … .be&a=

Oran, I'm laughing my head off at your add in the last post.
Thanks for publishing it here. If things go well, and I hope they do, I will redo all of the videos that I have published so far, for the sake of quality.  I understand that  there are breaks and glitches in the audio, and I'm working as hard as I can to fix them. Oran has been helpful here,  and I won't know yet for sure when I'll have them done.  It totally depends on the tests I'm going to run tonight.  In case I do redo them soon, how do you remove youtube videos? I probably should keep them,  just in case, but I want to know how so I can update them, should I become able to.
As far as the PS4 xbox system goes,  I want to redo the videos anyways, so I can  include the buttons for playstation. I have played a playstion virtually all of my child-teen-adult life, until a couple years ago, when I switched to xbox because of accessibility.
anyways, hope to hear from you all soon,  and I'll be doing what I can, when I can.

Hi.
Haha yeah, I actually hoped for the orchestral tracks to be in madden 18, I can't stand the music in modern sports games to be quite honest with you.
So, is there actually a release date for the accessibility features? As far as it sounds to me, adolis has these features already, or is that still the normal game without the features? I am confused now xD.

Very excited about all of this, I'm sure I will be picking this Game up. Funny, because the last time I play this have to be in 95. Since then it's been more watching other people play. I'm looking forward to it. Now the dilemma I'm having is this. I'll be cool playing with anybody, but it would be nice to play with as much as the community as possible. I have both systems, but buying two copies of the game is definitely not in the budget. Are wondering if anybody here has an idea of which way it would be better to kind of gauge what system most people are going with. If it would be better to do a post on here with the question, or maybe a poll on Twitter. And I understand is usually just preference, but just thought I would throw that out there.

Hello everyone,
I am excited to announce that after doing several broadcasts, and getting everything set up,  I believe we have found the audio problem. It's a two fold problem.  The first was indeed mixer, wich did indeed put everything in to mono audio.  Twitch definetly puts it in to Stereo, and  will even export your video to youtube.  However, the secon d problem was the hardware I was using. Tomorrow, I'm going to try and get an xbox one headset.  What do any of you guys suggest? Once this is done, and the tests are run for this final phase, I will redo the videos, as I promised, and then will move on to other games upon request.
Thank you all for your understanding, and thanks especially goes to oran,  for being pacient with me, and helping me test.  Thanks also must go to amber for  putting up with this madness.  Karren, the remakes will come, soon.

Here's a progress update for me with Madden in general.

I feel Accomplished: I won three total challenges in Ultimate Team

Easy challenges on Rookie, but challenges that netted me some XP and coins nonetheless. The first was to simply win the game with a touchdown for the tutorial, that win is pretty much given to you.
The second one is to play offense, win the game and rush for 30+ yards. A bit harder, but not by much. I learned some key things about when to run and learning the audible queues here. The winning the game part is given to you because the challenge starts at the tale end of the fourth, with you winning already, you just have to finish it off with a nice yardage gain. You also start off on second down.
The third an final one for now is where you have to play defense. Defense right now is arguably the hardest for a blind player to do successfully. While throwing is ten times easier than it was 10 years ago in 2007, the last Madden I played before this one, the trick is to stratigize your throw. In most cases, as the receiver you throw to your runningback who will try to run the ball for a touchdown. Which button is your runningback Scratch that, should I even be throwing to my runningback right now? Who's closest to me and able to catch the ball to run the opposing team's defense into the ground?

All these questions you must ponder in less than a second. All four face buttons and R1 are throwing buttons, and a number of factors will determine whether the pass is a complete pass and if it's actually caught. After a few incomplete passes on this challenge, I finally hit the magic button, square, and my runningback caught the ball. There was no one around him and the endzone was only a few yards away, so instant touchdown. The extra point was, of course, not good and will never be until the audible kick meter.
One more complete pass for a few more yardage and that was a completed challenge, pass for 50+ yards and win the game.

Right now, I'm at a standstill. My MUT team rating, if I'm to believe OCR, is 59. In order to unlock the next challenge, I have to increase that to 62. How I do that, I don't know.

That was just a progress update. Tomorrow I'm going to resume Injustice 2 and also start my Giants franchise.

Describe to me how you're trying to capture your video and maybe I can help. I use OBS.

@Ross, I'm using OBS as well. The issue is with the PS4 Remote Play app, and the issue will come up in the XBox app as well.
I've been trying to capture the PS4 Remote Play app using Window Capture. Game Capture definitely doesn't work and produces a blank screen.

The issue is putting the Remote Play app into Full Screen. By default, Window Capture squeezes the game screen into the top left hand corner of the screen. Maxing the app window doesn't change this.

Hello to all,
If you try to watch the videos that have been created for Madden 18 as of now, you will receive an error.  I have removed the videos, since the videos were poor quality, both with mono audio, and  and lots of breaks.  After all the testing that i have done, I have a solution. Thanks to Oran,  and to others for helping me find it. I will be doing my videos from an introduction, all the way up to  changing the music.  I will redo the franchise game, as well as recreating your franchise.  The quality will be better, and  and audio crisper.  If anyone wants any videos in particular, please pm me, or ask for them here.  Skills trainer will not be done, as it is not accessible.  I'll start the videos tomorrow,  and will hope to have them done in the next couple of days.  Thank you all for your pacients, and I look forward to hearing from all of you.

Hi.
Something I havnnt really seen in here, will we be able to fully play the longshot campaign mode in this madden game?
And, will the accessibility features also be available in the next editions of the madden game?

According to what Karren has posted, longshot will be able to be played through.  I see no reason why the accessibility changes that are coming soon, would not carry over to the next release.  (2019.)
As of now, I have no clue when the patch will be released.

Quick FYI before I'm engulfed by IRMA - the madden patch that came out yesterday was critical bug fixes. The accessibility patch is in the first content update. I do not have a confirmed date, but I would expect it to be out within the next 2-3 weeks, assuming that the studio is not significantly damaged by the hurricane. So, your mileage may vary as to when the update hits, but it is coming.
