Additional Comments

- I had trouble installing from the retail DVD so I dumped the iso and installed without any issues. Use the following command to create the iso: dd if=/dev/cdrom of=madden_08.iso - I did overwrite dxdiagn using winetricks. Xbox 360 controller works great using xboxdrv driver from Couple of small tidbits, madden doesn't work with the shoulder triggers. Easy workaround is create a config file (name it anything) then specify the config when starting xboxdrv. Another thing the default button mapping is wrong. Usually A is button 2, B button 3, X button 1 and Y is button 4. This is easily fixed in the config file also, as specified. The rest of the buttons are mapped fine. sudo xboxdrv --config ~/.xboxconf Inside this config put the following options [xboxdrv] trigger-as-button=true [ui-buttonmap] a=BTN_B x=BTN_A b=BTN_X
