Cool The art of SuperSim

I rented this game a couple days ago, so obviously I am still trying to figure out all of its functions and stuff (hitstick...wtf!?), but I already have all but 2 (completions in a row) of the achievements. Thanks to supersim .
Most people, from what I read on the forums, think that its just your luck to see if you can get half of the achievements by supersim. That is not so. There are many different things that can be used to tweak what achievements you get.

20 achieves- first supersim with 15 min quarters on all madden.
~8 achieves- second run through
3 achieves- third run through, five minute quarters
*gives up*

w00t, but there is one problem. you still have a bit over ten achys left! No matter how many times you supersim, you can't get any more!
not a problem.

need to deflect 4 passes with one player?
set the opponents' playbook to one that passes a lot.

need to recover fumbles?
get play against the texans with a team that has good Defense (bears, broncos)

STILL not working for you? Easy to fix.
go into your settings and tweak the bars for the CPU's like its nobodies business. example: if you need deflects, make it so that the cpu's throw bad, never get interceptions, and always defect. you will get the achievement like nobodies business. beware though, tweaking the player's bars won't do anything (this is from what i read, but I don't know for sure, so if you have info that says otherwise, that would be great ).

hopefully this was helpful, if not, im sorry
If you have anything to add, that great.
if you can correct any wrong info, thats fantastic too.

EDIT: I havn't tried this, but if you want to get technical, you can change the auto-sub rates so that the player you want to get the most fumbles, interceptions, etc, will always be in. I don't know if they can actually get tired though.

cheers~

I'll be getting this from gamefly today. Thanks for the tips. I'm not a big sports guy, just a big points whore, so this could be fun.

You are all cheaters. Get the achievements by actually playing the f^%$ing game. Jesus, I have 40 of these achievements and I've only played like 6 5-minute quarter games and had the game for about a week.

Yes, it's easy if you play the game, but if your an achievement whore that hates football, supersim is the answer

So let me get this straight. If I get this game, set it for supersim and go to bed, I'll have racked up achievement points in my sleep? I love to watch football, but never really got the hang of it on the consoles...

I got 745 points on this game, about 600 from supersim. I can't be bothered to play anymore seeing as I'm just renting it. I'm happy with just 745 easy points.

I learned 46 of them legit. But I tried supersimming for my last 2 4 Deflects and Recover 2 Fumbles to no avail. Any suggestions?

For these two you could either just do it yourself in the actual game (which might be easier since these are your LAST ones) or you can do what I said above: adjust the sliders to your liking. make you're deflects good and you're interceptions bad. Make their throws and catching terrible. Then sim. If its not helping, do those settings and play the game. And for the fumble one do the same thing but with the appropriate settings toggled.

Oh and thanks to whoever mod fixed the title of the thread. After I saw that I put are instead of art I just tried to make it seem like it wasn't a mistake rofl....

EDIT: Just to show you guys what Supersim is going to do for you, I made a graph.

The X axis is "Amount of SuperSims" and the Y Axis is "Number of Achievements"

This shows you that it will be VERY difficult to get achievements w/supersim when you have somewhere from 1-5 left. It also shows that it will be VERY EASY when you have 0-20 achievements.

I'm glad supersim is in this. I havent picked it up (rented it, but it was defective). I get tired of playing in the span of a season, so being able to sim after getting the lead is a great option.

Sorry, I know its a dead thread, but does anyone know why I cant choose supersim? Its always greyed out and un-clickable...Anyone know why?

Oh, and how do you turn Offsides off? I can only find a slider, should I just turn that down all the way?

Thanks!

When the manu that you choose a play opens up, press start then, and it won't be greyed out.

For the offsides, yes, just put the slider down to zero.

Supersim helped me get most of the achievements I was missing. I played the game legit before I found out that you could do it.
