    How to create a PS3 profile for viewing the offline franchise file...

    My pleasure!

    Instructions:

    In Madden 11 they have made it so that you are not allowed to share Franchise Files between users.

    We have found that in order to be able to share a franchise file between PS3 systems, a profile tied to the same PSN account must be created on both machines. The PSN account is tied to the Trophy system, which is the most likely reason for the blocking of sharing franchise save files.

    We have created a PSN profile just for our PMFL Franchise save file, and each of us will now need to create a profile for the new PSN account on our PS3s to be able to use this save file. This will not affect any other profiles or content on your PS3, it just simply means you will have to use the new profile whenever you want to access the PMFL offline franchise file, in order to view/manage your team’s salary cap.

    Instructions for creating the new profile for the PMFL Offline Franchise File:

    Step 1: While logged into an account on you PS3, scroll all the way to the left of the XMB bar (the main menu system for the PS3). On the Users group scroll up and select Create New User (Picture 1). It doesn’t matter what the name of the profile is, in the example I have named it PMFL Franchise (Picture 2).

    Step 2: Log into the new profile and scroll to the Playstation Network group on the XMB bar (2nd last from right). Scroll Up to the top option Sign Up For Playstation Network (picture 3) and select it.

    Step 3: You will have 2 options to choose from and you want to select Use an Existing Account (picture 4).

    Step 4: You will be prompted for a Sign-In ID (E-mail Address) and Password (Picture 5). Enter pmfl.franchisefile@gmail.com as the email address and the password that will be supplied to you via IM (if you haven’t received this contact Doug, Eddie, or Jim) and click Continue (picture 6). After clicking continue you will be given a confirmation screen (Picture 7). At this point you are done and can use Circle to go back, you don’t even need to sign in.

    From here you are ready to copy the Franchise Save File (available on the main page of our League Daddy homepage) to the saved games folder and should be able to load it in Madden 11. When copying the save file from a memory card or thumb drive, you must copy it into the saved games folder for this new profile you just created on your PS3. You will need to use this profile anytime you want to access the offline franchise file for salary cap purposes, but all the rest of your Madden gaming would still be done on the profile(s) you are currently using for it.

    I have also created a PDF FIle of these instructions, just in case it would be more convenient for some: Download Here ~~~> Instructions PDF
