couple questions on this...

Is there a patch for this?

Does it work on 32 team roms? i tried and it did not seem to. I ran a season but the right teams did not go into the playoffs. the 1st team (Buffalo) was in each playoff spot except for one. is there a way to make it work?

is there a way to eliminate the other wild card and go to 4 team brackets in a 32 team rom? simply the winner of each division plays the winner of the division next to them?

this could be great for a 32 team college rom.

This is an ips patch that coach bama made. It only works for the 28 team rom as of right now. :)

cool thanks...

has anyone looked into figuring out how this might work for 32 teams? and/or making it an 8 team playoff?

Could whatever method that was utilized here be further used in shaving down the number of playoff teams in each conference to four? What about down to two?

Yes, the number of playoff teams can easily be the size of the original or smaller.

Could there be just two teams?

Could the playoffs be altogether eliminated?

With the latter question, I'm wondering if a hack could trigger the final championship celebration right at the completion of the final week of the regular season, eliminating the playoffs altogether. Ideally, it would depict as champions the team with the best winning percentage.

Would you be willing to explain to a total noob how to set the playoffs for 4 teams per conference? I have been playing roms from the early 70s and back then it was 3 division winners and only 1 wild card team.

For the first time in our young league's history last night, we had MAN vs. MAN matchup in a conference championship game and the 1-seed was relegated to Player #2.  Does anyone know how to flip these brackets so the 1-seed (or whoever might beat the 1-seed) has Player #1?

Good question. Has anyone made an 8 team playoff bracket hack? How about a 16 team playoff bracket to cover the 82 strike season?
