Just simulate everything for 30 years. It will take you several hours to do but at least you don't have to play them all. When the pre-season starts go to week 4 and hit start and it will give you the option to simulate the pre-season and then do the same with the regular season just go to week 17 instead. Hope this helps you out.

I just got the 30 Years of Franchise achievement in the close of the 2033 season



By my reckoning, that was only 27years

I thought I was the only one that noticed that. Does anybody know if this is a glitch?

you can get fired in both, but you have to do really bad for it to happen in madden.

and, yes, just like ncaa... it does not matter. there will always be another job offer waiting for you.

thanks shaddy,I was all worried about getting fired and taking it slow making sure I had a good record and such.In past years in madden if you got fired you had to start your entire franchise over.I will be getting this last achivement tomorrow as soon my xbox gets back from microsoft.(fingers crossed)(please, come u.p.s.)

just pick one of the better teams like the patriots or whatever and you shouldn't get fired. I didn't during the sim. It does take a long time and gets very, very, boring.

Yeah, I'm doing this at the moment. It isn't the most fun thing in the world. The worst part is the off-season...*yawn* takes so damn long.

yeah what i did was sit next to the computer and watch videos on youtube, whilst checking the game to see when i needed to press X to simulate the next part, rookie signings and the draft are the most time consuming

Can you save each year as a different franchise game save, which would mean you would skip the off season (thats what takes the most time). Does anyone know if this method works or do you have to simulate it on the same game save and have to go through the off seaon?

Nope, only way to do it is one save, simming 30 years through it. Although, as someone mentioned earlier, it ends up being 27 years, so at least 3 or so have been knocked off.

I decided to do house work all day today while running through the 30 years. Not a bad way to pass the time and my house is sparkling clean.

I've simmed through 32 years at the moment. Is this achievement glitched a bit by chance?

I like sim

Wow, simulating a season is sooooo boring! 2018 and counting. Good thing this is a quick 1000, and I got it used for 4.99. Whew. Now for 07

It's now 10:52, been simming for two hours , close of the 2029 season, so nothing at 2027, they must have patched it?

30 Years is at 2036?

If you sim the 30 years, can you set the quarters down to 1 min? Or does that not matter?
