    Ok I am wanting to rejoin a league I was in but it is a PC madden league. Can the mac version accept league files from the pc game (a franchise file) and play other PC madden guys?

    If so that would be awesome.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The "Mac version" is the PC version, just wrapped in a translation layer, so if the version numbers are the same, you should be able to.

    There are a few posts that even after the update and specifically after the iMac firmware that the grahics issues with text didn't get fixed.

    So I guess a more accurate answer would be, yes and no. On most systems yes it work, on the new iMacs I read posts that it works but the text issues that came out are still there.

    I have a new Al iMac with Leopard and I can tell you from my experience that it works flawlessly with the firmware update and the game update.

    Did it really fix the Dock issues? I never noticed them until I applied the game patch. Now if I switch to another window in the middle of a game (or if something pops up, like the Time Machine reminder that i haven't backed up) then I don't have any icons for Madden and can't figure out how to switch back to it. Command-Tab doesn't seem to show it either.

    Any suggestions?
