The game used a codewheel for it copy protection. Electronics Art used many different copy protection forms in the 1980s for it’s Commodore 64 games from Error checking to FAT Tracks on 34/35, to Pirateslayer and then to Codewheels and manual look ups.

There was already a print out of the codewheel, BUT it’s pretty confusing look at this:  John Madden Football

SO I found a code wheel on Ebay and bought it to scan for my blog, here it is in PDF and PNG. Hope this helps someone. MaddenScan.PDF and MaddenScanPNG.zip
