Field Goals and Extra Points

They seem to have made kicking field goals and extra points much harder than in previous years.. I find myself missing a third of all extra points.. =0(

Even when having FG Accuracy set to 99.

You need help man. It's almost too easy to hit FG's IMO

Well I wouldn't say it's almost too easy. It is harder than last year, but you will get better. It took me a few games to get used to it. I laughed the first couple of times I missed extra points.

Re: Field Goals and Extra Points

I have played about 10 games.. and am still missing a third of the extra point attempts...

I will concentrate more instead of just assuming it will go in.. (like in the old days)

As long as you get like 24 or better on the accuracy, it will go in. Don't worry about how much power, make sure you get the accuracy down.

"Get 24"?? I play madden 2005 on the PC... what do you mean by 24? does the console version give you a number when making kicks?

Yeah it does. I think this is the best year ever for FGs/XPs because it's not too hard but you can miss at times which is realistic. Now if they'd just add bobbled snaps and more variety of fakes I'd be happy.

I've missed a hell of alot of them, but that means I need to put time into it. While the kicking game isn't perfect, it's by far my favorite in football games, including kickoff, kick return, especially punt and punt returns and of course FG's.

On All-Pro and All-Madden, you're better off just getting a certain timing down as opposed to trying to eye down the correct time to hit the button

40% of the time I kick, I always seem to have the same combination, 96 power, 98 accuracy. Just get a timing down, that would make it a lot easier, I think.

I tried that and then I tried eyeballing it and either way i'm just too inconsistent. This is one of those things like the lining up those damn arrows in the old 2k sports basketball games. Either you can do it or you can't. I'm sure it's super easy for some but it's ruining this game for me. I think I'm screwed.
