    Ok I just got the 10 legacy achievements in 10-15 minutes, Once I got the team sorted.

    Ill share here how I did it.

    First you need to download my Roster, press cn_RB along to customise on the main menu, then select share and manage files from the menu. Then select the download community files option, and download the file seahawkslegacy created by scottish nutter.

    Then still in the customise menu, select load and delete files. Tap cn_RB to go along to rosters, and then select the seahawkslegacy roster you have just downloaded, to load it into the game.

    Go back to the main menu and select franchise.

    Choose cloud, and start a new franchise. Make sure to select, use active roster not preason roster.

    Make sure you select the Seattle Seahawks and before you start the season, select league settings. Change the skill level to All-Madden, and salary cap to off. Towards the bottom of the menu, Re-sign players, Fill Roster, progress players, sign off season free agents, and simulate game prep activities are all set to on. Also make sure your league is set to private.

    Back out of the settings menu, and select change role above. Select a coach, create coach, and the team builder style.

    Now start the season, and go down to advance week, tap down so you can select how far to sim, press left to select sim 10 years, and press cn_A and wait for the 10 achievements to pop.

    Once you have all 10 achievements you can cn_B to cancel simming, you do not need to wait for the 10 years to finish.

    MemesNBeerDidn’t get the last 2 achievements because my coach got fired. Once I turned off Coach Firing it worked fine

    Legacy achievements are back yet again. Thankfully simming is pretty quick this year so it shouldn't be too bad. If you follow these instructions you should be able to pick up all achievements in around 5 minutes.

    1. From the home screen, go to the customize section. Customize > Share & Manage Files > Download Community Files.
    2. Search "Dallas99" and download the roster.
    3. Back out to the Share & Manage Files screen, select Load & Delete files, load your new Dallas99 roster.
    4. Go to the "Play" menu on the home screen, select Franchise, Cloud.
    5. Start a new franchise, and select use active roster.
    6. Let the roster import for a few seconds, then select the Cowboys.
    7. Under league settings, change the following: Skill Level > All Madden / Re-Sign Players > ON / Progress Players > ON / Sign Free Agents > ON
    8. Save settings, now go to select role - Coach > New Coach > Team Builder > Accept & Continue
    9. Now start playing the new franchise.
    10. Select Advance Week > Jump Ahead: Sim 10 Years

    I unlocked all achievements around year 3 or 4. If anything is unclear, please let me know in the comments and I'll be sure to change. Enjoy.

    BionicLyonI used the seahawks modded roster and sim like 10 times at 30 years and couldn't the Walter Payton or the Peyton Manning awards. Then I switched it up to the Dallas99 by JuniorMT and the both popped by season 4. I don't know if it matter but I also turned off coach firing.

    Thanks again...

    Here's how I did it and you don't need to download a special roster:

    1: Create your Franchise (can be online or offline) with any team.
    2: Set difficulty to All-Madden and make sure the CPU does all the roster moves.
    3: Turn off coach settings as well (Credit for the reminder: Exe the Hero).
    4: Now change role- Coach, new coach, pick the style you want, accept & continue.
    5: Sim the preseason.
    6: Go to league schedules and press cn_A to do force win. Select home if your team is playing at home (vs.) and away if your team is on the road (@). Do this for all your games.
    NOTE: Away is on the left and Home is on the right (Credit for the reminder: Exe the Hero).
    7: Do the same for each playoff game/Super Bowl).
    8: Sim offseason letting the CPU do the work
    9: Rinse and repeat steps 5-8 until you have all the achievements.

    NOTE: You can also use this method to get the following achievements:

    Apostle92627@HookEmHorns1985 Are you sure you're on All-Madden difficulty? You get more Legacy points that way.

    PaulRKraftThe other solutions did not work. Someone might as well add a solution advising to not waste time on the download roster solutions and go immediately to this solution.

    ChuckieJThis took a long time but did work. Better than trying the custom rosters over and over...
