Madden NFL 20 Patch 1.29 Available - Madden Share Still Down, Patch Notes Here

Madden NFL 20 game update 1.29 is available for both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, featuring general stability improvements in franchise mode and the following gameplay updates.

  • Fixed an issue allowing defenders into the backfield unblocked with defensive formations such as Nickel 2-4-5 Odd
  • Fixed an additional issue allowing the ‘Nasty Streak’ Superstar ability to be used on players out of position

Of note, Madden Share is still down. Most, if not all users are unable to download community rosters, draft classes, playbooks and sliders. The message typically states the contents of the file may contain offensive language, before quickly showing an error that the file cannot be downloaded, because it has been removed by its creator.

Currently, EA doesn’t have an ETA on a fix, but they are aware.

We’ve seen players fix this by clearing the game saved data for both local and cloud on their consoles. If you use an external hard drive, please try reinstalling the game on the internal drive after all files have been deleted on both external and internal. I’ve seen situations where a game is installed on the internal and all the downloads are located on the external, so there’s a disconnect. When external drives are attached, there is an option to enable all additional updates and downloads to the external drive. Make sure all files are going to the same source.

Please try downloading a variety of files. Some user files could be located on the Community files section but have been pulled or become corrupted. 

Ensure all ports listed for Madden 20 are enabled in your network settings. Here are ports listed for Madden 20: https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/faq/opening-tcp-or-udp-ports-for-connection-issues/

Thank you for your patience while this is under investigation. We know with the current world situation this is a widely sought after feature as friends and family are spending more time together. We’ll update this post when we have more information.

  1. MUST....EAT....PIZZA HUT.
    This (Pizza Hut ads on all stadium screens) is new, yeah? Did they really include a crummy commercial in the patch?
    The Patch:
    I’ve got half my teams done in editing process, great sliders ect..and I will be able to start my Franchise.
    I am so afraid to pull trigger on this “Patch”, in fear that it will screw up something or take away some animation or skew the balance of gameplay.

    What roster edits are you making?

    I’m starting to feel like the madden share issue is intentional.*

    If you guys know that device that is known as a pen drive you could have saved some rosters !!!:lol:

    A work around is if you have an external drive big enough to hold a game, copy your current game to that and stay offline with that version, and let the console run the updated M20 versions.
    Your external edited roster save is not affected when you load game off of the console (updated), then go load your roster off your external drive.
    Everyone should invest in doing this with Madden, as many of the updates end up affecting gameplay for Sim/CFM folks negatively most of the time.
    My external offline game save is from a rented disk version consisting of no updates and It’s the best gameplay version of M20 to me.
    You can even move/copy over each updated version to your external that you load and play from that updated version you like the most. (Offline of course)

    I edit player attributes. I lower “speed“ rating for all players by 10...then I adjust
    “acceleration “ to below the speed attribute, between 3 or 5 ticks below.
    The result is beautiful animations, I also have a great set of sliders from Cdcool.
    I play Cpu vs Cpu ..create players teams ect. Would love to download some great rosters from Madden files but no lick there..

    How can you still do it? The game is too broken to play myself vs cpu unless I rig my gameplay to help the AI and the broken custom playbooks, 50yd line FG attempts for no reason and the backwards running QBs with the HBs juking in the wrong direction when heading to the sidelines is driving me up the wall. Complaining on here just gets you bashed for calling a **** product what it is but help me enjoy this game. What sliders do you use? Do you use Custom PB? How do you stop the dumb QB/HB animations and FGs being called at the 50 in the 1st quarter on 4th down.

    I feel your frustration and agree with all you’ve said. Madden is more arcade than sim and has been going that direction for some time .
    I’m a older guy and I create teams players and I Cpu vs Cpu games..so I don’t have some of the issues you have....I also found “Cdcool “ and his approach to game and sliders along with my edits allow for wonderful animations and for the most part correct animations and player logic...
    I’m hoping in the future 2k can save us all from the EA and it’s ignorance and deliberate refusal for putting out a product that even resembles slightly the game of football. They cater to a certain type of game player and I have no problem with how anybody plays this game .however Franchise is not a priority for them
    ....it’s 2020 and we still can’t get a face editor ect...
    Hang in there

    Still trying to understand how one determines a video game is “broken” if it’s “broken”!!! lol
    Everyone has their own opinion/definition of what a broken game means. In madden football, i use the term broken because it does not play the way football is played.
    QBs dont run backwards on a high percentage of drop backs for no reason at all. Running backs do not juke backwards when no defender is within 7 plus yards of them in all directions. Receivers do not stop their momentum and leap in the air when wide open on a route on the majority of their receptions, and even worse, when it is uncalled for in the situation. Lineman do not stand up in their blocking formation shuffling left and right with defenders within feet away like fooseball players when a lineman has run around them or they have stopped the help on a double team or their man has fallen down.
    I mean I can go on but it's not like this is unknown to anyone who plays the game and actually watches what is happening on the field. The decision making is broken I guess.
    The ai is just not up to date as far as programming goes to know what to do in any given situation most of the time. Even when running wide open you can see ball carriers switching ball hands or juking etc for no reason. Maybe I have to high of an expectation of what a baseline game of football should play like and need to stick to other titles that through the flaws, still play more true to their sports than Madden.
    I truly want more updated physics, presentation, franchise options and customization etc, but until the AI can better replicate what happens in football at any high level, it's broken to me.
    Side note: imagine playing the show and a shortstop shuffling left and right after a passed ball or a baserunner goes back and forth on a outfield fly not knowing whether to tag or advance. This would not be accepted at all but yet we have to explain and debate on these forums alot whether madden is acceptable or not. I'm truly at a loss
