View Full Version : Audibles before the line of scrimmage
07-23-2004, 05:15 PM
Can anyone tell me how or what I can do to call offensive audibles prior to the line of scrimmage. This has happened to me twice in the last 2 games.
Once the guiy was in the Hailmary selection screen and then came to the line line in a shotgun spread formation.
The other was in hurryup and the guy was in ace normal and then did the hurry and when he got to the line he was in I form normal.
When I try to audible before the line of scrimmage it will not let me until my guys are at teh line. This is online of course. Please let me know know.

I have the same thing in my dynasty, I thought they just changed things around this year to make your guys be in a set position before you could audible

i am pretty sur that during hurry up u can audible right after the play.the other way i dunno bout ncca but n madden at the formation selection screen say u were viewing singleback an below it was i form u could hit down + x pick a ply outta iform but it would still say 3 wr 1 te 1 rb instead of 2 wr 1 te 2 rb i think thats wat this guy did to you

I just got the game and so far this is the most MADDENING thing about this game.. the fact that you cannot audible on the fly in the hurry up offense.
HELLO EA!! For over 15 years now football has had these things called WRISTBANDS that the offensive players where NOOOOOOO ITS NOT A FASHION STATEMENT.. some teams actually can run their entire offense from the wristband and the qb just has to SHOUT OUT A NUMBER "45", "12".. or are you sitting down the coaches on the SIDELINE can put the number on huge cards so the players can see it....
and NOOOOO they don't have to wait for the QB to be under center before they can do this!!!
:mad: Sorry for the rant :mad: sometimes EA does such dumb things!
Okay now here is what I have noticed... you can change a hot route anytime.. I've also noticed if I'm NOT WAITING for my QB to get under center I think (not 100% positive) I can call an audible if I'm waiting for a WR to run back to the line, the rule seems to be you can call a hot route anytime (and hence radically change a pass play) or you can call in audible if your QB is under center or in a "snap" position even if you are waiting for the teamates to get lined up.
Still this is one of those DUMB things ea does that just bewilders people :mad:
