    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2.) MODES OF GAME PLAY
    
    EXHIBITION- Here you pick which team you want to be and which team you want 
    to play, and hopefully open a can of whoop --- on.  You can also choose the 
    playbook that you want to use.  Pick which stadium you play in, the time of 
    day, and the weather conditions and you're off.  If you want a random 
    opponent, or your team to be at random, simply highlight the home or away 
    team (which ever you want to be at random) and hold L or R.
    
    SEASON- You can see through the eyes of an NFL coach and try to lead your 
    team to the Super Bowl.  Play any game or simulate them through the 17-week 
    schedule.  You can trade players and sign free agents on your quest to be the 
    best team in the NFL.  After the regular season and playoffs are over, you 
    can play the Pro Bowl.
    
    CUSTOM SEASON- This is very similar to the season mode.  The difference is 
    that you get to pick the teams in each division and the team schedules.
    
    FRANCHISE- Become a full time coach of your favorite team.  Guide your team 
    through up to 15 seasons.  But you better keep winning because no owner wants 
    a coach that can't win.  You get to do preseason trading, drafting, and 
    signing free agents.  If you're like me, this is the most fun part.  
    
    TOURNAMENT- Here you compete in an 8 or 16 team single-elimination 
    tournament.  Pick the teams and go.
    
    FANTASY DRAFT- This can be the most fun mode of play.  First you pick the 
    number of teams you want to have, 4, 8, or 16, and then you go through a 48-
    round player draft to get the best players at each position.  Pick the team 
    names and you're ready to play a season with your fantasy draft team or 
    teams.  The great thing about this mode is that you can have as many of your 
    dream teams as you want.  My suggestion is that when you chose if teams are 
    going to be human or CPU controlled during the draft, pick human for every 
    one of them.  This way, you can pick all of the best players for your team, 
    and the worst players for the rest.  Then you just play the games as your 
    "good" team.  It can be fun but if you're looking for a challenge, have good 
    players on every team. 
    
    PRACTICE- The most helpful mode in the game.  You pick your team and then you 
    can go out and practice every aspect of the game.  Put yourself in any 
    situation so that you can improve in that area.  This is also the best way to 
    become familiar with the plays.  Whether you're a beginner or have been 
    playing the game every day for 6 months, this is the best way to improve.  
    You know the saying; practice makes perfect.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.) GAME STYLE AND OPTIONS
    
    *Game Style*
    
    TRADITIONAL- Play with an NFL-style playbook.  When you play you pick your 
    formation, then which play you want to do.  	
    
    ARCADE- This is like traditional style only easier.  There are less rules and 
    play calling is different.  Your play options are more limited and this 
    results in quicker game play.
    
    ONE BUTTON- It's exactly like it says.  You only need to use one button to 
    play the whole game.  All moves and everything are performed using the A 
    button.
    
    *Options*
    
    QUARTER LENGTH- You know that you're going to play a game, now you just have 
    to figure out how long you want to play.  You can have anywhere from 1 to 15 
    minute quarters.  I suggest for beginners to leave it at 5-minute quarters.  
    I also suggest trying 1-minute quarters so that you can practice your hurry-
    up offense.  This is one of the only things that you can't do in practice 
    mode.
    
    SKILL LEVEL- Chose from Pro (easy), All-Pro (Medium), or Madden (Hard).  I've 
    heard of Madden difficulty called knock your --- down mode, but that's only 
    if you're inexperienced.
    
    INJURIES- You can have this on or off.  When on, players from either team can 
    get hurt.  When this happens, if the injury is bad, an ambulance will drive 
    out onto the field and take the injured player off the field.  This is kind 
    of cool.  The computer automatically substitutes a back up in for the injured 
    player.
    
    COMMENTARY- If this is on, then you get to hear John Madden's commentary and 
    Pat Summerall do play-by-play.
    
    FATIGUE- When you put this on, players get tired during the course of the 
    game.  When they are tired they don't perform as well.  This makes sense. If 
    you were out playing a sport and got tired, you wouldn't be playing at your 
    best.  This option is so that you can make your game play as much like the 
    real NFL as possible.
    
    PASSING MODE- Chose normal for regular old passing and directional for 
    simplified passing.  Directional is more simple but you don't gain as many 
    yards on passes.
    
    TRADE DEADLINE- If you have this on, players cannot be traded after week 6 in 
    season or custom season modes.  In franchise mode, this cannot be turned off.
    
    PLAYER LOCK- This is for defense only.  This means that you are locked on one 
    player from one play to the next.  It's the last player you were before the 
    end of the play.  This doesn't mean that you are locked on the player forever 
    and can't switch.  You can change which player you control as normal by 
    pressing the A button.  This is just the player that you control before the 
    next snap when you get into your formation.
    
    SALARY CAP- Turning this off or on only affects season and custom season 
    modes.  When off, you can have as much of a team salary as you want meaning 
    you can sign more players and ones with higher salary demands.  This does not 
    work in franchise mode.  The salary cap is always on there.
    
    PENALTY LEVELS- Here you get to chose whether penalties are called often or 
    not.  When they are on full, penalties are called more often.  Having all 
    penalties on full creates a more NFL-style game play.  I think that it's fun 
    to play with all of the penalties off.  Then it's barnyard style where almost 
    anything goes.  There are two penalties that cannot be accessed.  False 
    starts on offense, and off sides on defense are called regardless of the 
    levels of the rest of the penalties.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.) FRONT OFFICE
    
    This you can access from the main menu screen.  Making changes in rosters 
    here affect exhibition mode only.  There is a similar option in franchise and 
    season modes that do the same thing.
    
    *Trade Players*
    
    You can look through the rosters of each team and trade players amongst them 
    trying to create your ultimate team.  In franchise mode, you can only trade 
    players on your team.
    
    *Sign/Release Players*
    
    Say you can't find the right player to fill a position in your roster on the 
    other teams or simply can't afford their salary.  You can access this option 
    and sign players that are currently free agents and haven't been signed to 
    any teams.  Or you may want to release one or more of your players because 
    you don't want them on your team or to have a little more money to sign high 
    priced players.
    
    *Reorder Roster*
    
    Maybe your starter isn't playing up to your expectations and you want to 
    bench him and see how the back up will do.  Push a few buttons and it's done, 
    you have a new starter.  You can also switch players from a certain position 
    to another.  I personally wonder how some of the great receivers like Jerry 
    Rice and Cris Carter would do at a defensive back position.  With this option 
    you can put them there and find out how they do.  Not every player can be put 
    in at every position.  
    
    *Create Player*
    
    Don't like the real football players on the game?  Think that you can do 
    better?  This is your chance.  You can create you own ultimate players.  You 
    get to choose everything right down to the player's dominant hand.  You 
    choose what the player's strengths are.  Make a lineman that's a great 
    blocker and really fast.  Or a quarterback with deadly accuracy and a great 
    scrambling ability.  You can create up to 16 of your own players.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    5.) USER PROFILES
    
    The User Profile option is very helpful if you play the game a lot like I do.  
    You can chose whatever team you want and pick a playbook to go with it.  If 
    you want to you can create your own playbook by choosing the custom playbook 
    option.  You'll then get to choose six plays for the different sets of the 
    six formations that you chose.  Confused?  It's pretty simple when you are 
    doing it.  Don't like the plays there are to chose from?  You can create your 
    own offensive run, offensive pass, and defensive plays and put them into your 
    playbook.  In the user profile option you can select your favorite plays as 
    audibles so that you don't have to do it before every game that you play.  
    You can also change your player lineup too by selecting substitutions.  
    
    User Profiles can be used in exhibition games, season, custom season, 
    franchise, tournament, fantasy draft, and practice modes.  You activate your 
    user profile at the beginning of the game at the controller select screen.  
    Press left or right to move your controller to whichever team you want to be.  
    Then hit A.  Press left or right to find the name of the profile you want to 
    use and then hit A again to select it.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6.) CONTROLLER PAK
    
    I thought I'd add this section so that people reading this would know how 
    many pages is required to save games to memory cards.  I want this guide to 
    be as complete as possible.
    
    Saved Data    | Notes | Pages |
    -------------------------------
    Season        |   1   |  107  |
    Franchise     |   1   |  123  |
    Fantasy Draft |   1   |  107  |
    Tournament    |   1   |  107  |
    User Profile  |   1   |   6   |
    Game Settings |   1   |   2   |
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    7.) TIPS
    
    The very first thing is to buy this game.  Some of the people reading this 
    may not own this game.  I believe this is a great game and every football fan 
    and video game player should try it.
    
    Buy a memory card.  Exhibition games and practices are the only things that 
    you don't need a memory card for.  In season, franchise, tournament, and 
    fantasy draft modes, if you're planning on playing a game now then continuing 
    later, you need a memory card.  Unless you're planning on leaving your 
    Nintendo 64 on full time.  It takes about a full page on the memory card to 
    save any of these things so I recommend getting a memory card plus so you 
    have four times the memory.  You can purchase these at just about any store 
    for anywhere from $12-$18.
    
    Practice makes perfect.  Actually, I don't believe there is a perfect but 
    practice does make you get better.  The more you play the game the better 
    you'll be at it and the more fun you'll have.
    
    What I'm about to tell you may be considered cheating by some but I guess 
    everyone has their own opinion.  In any game that you play, if you pause the 
    game, there should be an icon thing that says controller select.  The same 
    screen as before the game will come up, the one where you chose your team.  
    In the middle of the game you could switch your controller indicator to the 
    other team so that you get to control their players.  All you have to do then 
    is play badly.  Call a running play and run the wrong way so that your team 
    (the team you originally were) gets a safety.  Then you can switch right back 
    and get the ball back on offense so you can attempt to get another touchdown.
    
    Develop your own playing style.  Maybe you like to do a lot of screen passes 
    and run the ball inside.  Go for it.  If you have your own way, your own 
    style, you'll play better.
    
    This kind of goes against what I just said but if you think about it, it can 
    go with it too.  Don't just do the same thing over and over again on offense.  
    Mix it up.  That way, just like in the NFL, it's a lot harder for the defense 
    to keep up.  An example would be to throw a few screen passes and run the 
    ball a few times then throw a deep pass.  You have to also remember to keep 
    running and passing the ball no matter what.  Maybe you aren't doing so well 
    at running the ball and you want to just keep passing it.  This is a mistake.  
    You can do it but it isn't recommended.
    
    As I said earlier in the game modes section, the practice mode is great.  
    There is one thing that you can't practice with this though.  And that's your 
    hurry up offense.  This is where you don't have a lot of time but you need to 
    get down to the other end of the field and score a touchdown.  I found that 
    the best way to do this is to play with one-minute quarters.  This way you 
    have very little time to score and you have to use it wisely or you won't.  
    This can be fun and you find out a lot about having to hurry up and score.  
    
    There are a few things that I have found useful while playing Madden 99.  On 
    kick off returns I always chose sideline as my play.  As soon as I catch the 
    ball I take off running towards the sideline.  I keep running forward while 
    doing this though.  Eventually I come to where a few guys on the other team 
    are there about to tackle me.  I like to do a juke move at this time when I 
    come face to face with them.  They almost always miss the tackle.  Then I run 
    as fast as I can down the sideline in an attempt to get a touchdown.  I'm not 
    saying that this will work for everyone but it does for me and you might want 
    to give it a try. 
    
    I have also developed an easy way to sack the opposing team's quarterback.  I 
    pick a defensive play were my outside linebackers blitz around the offensive 
    tackles.  My favorite for this is the 3-4 formation play Fox.  Then I either 
    try to run in a straight line to where the quarterback will drop back to or 
    else run straight down the field and then in at the quarterback making a 90? 
    angle.  The latter works better if they have tight ends or running backs that 
    are staying behind to block.  By doing this I easily sack the quarterback 
    about three or four times with each of my outside linebackers during the 
    game.
    
    When you're on defense, you can tell what formation your opponent will be in.  
    If you look down at their screen, they'll pick whatever formation they're 
    currently looking at.  This works against the computer as well as a human 
    player.  This is especially good against the computer in the fourth quarter. 
    If they're behind, you might not know if they are going to punt the ball or 
    go for a first down on fourth downs.  It's also good in extra point attempts.  
    You'll be able to tell if your opponent is going for one or two points, then 
    pick your formation accordingly.

    DANCING REFEREE
    When you get to the screen where the coin toss takes place, press B, B, A, C-
    Up.  I am told that this works but never have actually gotten it to work 
    myself.
    
    HIGH STEP INTO THE END ZONE
    When you're running for a touchdown, rapidly press C-up when you get inside 
    the 10-yard line.  For this to work, there must not be any opponents near-by.  
    If there are, instead of high-stepping it in for a touchdown, you're player 
    will jump up and down.
    
    AUTOMATIC PASS
    When you're doing a pass play, your quarterback can do an automatic pass to a 
    receiver instead of you making him pass the ball.  After you snap the ball on 
    any pass play, don't push any buttons.  Your quarterback will take his drop 
    steps and then throw the ball.  He throws the ball to the receiver most open.
    
    ALWAYS WIN COIN TOSS
    As soon as the coin toss screen comes up, repeatedly press start.  The coin 
    toss and kicking/receiving and which side to defend are all skipped.  Instead 
    you go immediately to the kickoff with your team receiving the ball.  A few 
    times I have tried this and had to kick off.  But more times than not, this 
    works.

    12.) FAQ
    
    If you have any questions you can e-mail me at JlASO23@aol.com and I will try 
    to answer them.
    
    Why do some player's names appear as a number (example: NO.18)?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    There are a few players of the current NFL teams that have numbers for names.  
    These players were rookies when the game was released.
    Other players, such as the ones on the classic and secret (unlocked by 
    entering a cheat code) teams also may appear this way.  I am not exactly sure 
    why this is but I have two theories: 
    1.) The makers of the game (Electronic Arts) didn't know who all these 
    players were.
    2.) When the game was being made, it was found to be easier to put a number 
    instead of a name.
    
    On franchise mode, how do you get to see the Super Bowl clip after the game 
    is over? (4faith1)
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    Of all of the Super Bowls that I've played, I've never seen a clip 
    afterwards.  I'm not sure there is any to see.
    
    How do I save my created player? (Dan Fran9)
    --------------------------------------------
    Once you create a player in season or franchise mode he should be saved when 
    you save your game.  Then when you play again he should be there. 
    
    How do I use my created player in an Exhibition game? (Dan Fran9)
    -----------------------------------------------------------------
    You can't use a created player in an exhibition game.
    
    Can you block a field goal attempt or punt? If so...how? (kt05344@alltel.net)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Yes you can but it is very difficult.
    I've heard of blocking a field goal by using a punt block formation.  You're 
    supposed to get the return man a few yards from the ball and then run in with 
    him and jump to block the 3-pointer.  I've never gotten this to work though.
    As for blocking a punt, I've only been able to do it in practice mode where I 
    had the offense backed up to the goal line.  I used a punt block for a 
    formation and then came in with the safety on the side of the punter where 
    there wasn't a guy to block.  I think it was the punters left.  This only 
    worked about once every ten tries though.
