Although it's been over seven years since the last officially licensed NCAA football game hit consoles, my love for the sport and playing it on a console has only grown stronger in its absence. It's a sentiment I'm sure many of you share as we still cling to the hope that one day a new licensed title will find its way to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and PC.
While the outlook for a new NCAA football game soon looks as bleak as a midwestern winter's day, there has been some good news to help. For those with access to a computer and a bit tech-savvy, not just the introduction, but the flourishing of console emulators has started in full swing.
These emulators, and there are plenty of them, allow you to play some of your favorite games of the past on a current PC by emulating the old consoles and running the software as if you were using that console. The process can vary widely and is too long to cover in this article, but know that if you're interested, there's an incredible amount of information and tutorials online.
With the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, we are now two console generations away from the latest NCAA football game, and the emergence of emulators is what brings me back to the origin point of NCAA Football 14. Spoilers, I had already played a modded version of NCAA Football 14 for a while. I had not only found a way to enjoy NCAA Football 14 once again with the RPCS3 emulator, but could apply the current rosters and even play at 4K resolution.
The only downside, and it was one I was willing to concede, was the fact that teams had moved to different conferences, acquired new uniforms and helmets, and updated real-life field art. Simply put, playing NCAA Football 14 on my PC in 4K with current rosters was awesome, it was a bit dated – until now.Contents hide 1 College Football Revisited 1.1 Change for the Better 1.2 How Do I Play This? 2 Conclusion 3 Related

What is College Football Revamped, you ask? Well, if you ask me, it's the best thing since sandwich bread. This is a series of in-game tweaks for NCAA Football 14 that have been compiled into one awesome package that helps usher in NCAA Football 14 into the new era with updated splash screens, wipes, helmets and uniforms, logos, field artwork, and more.
Here are the novelties coming directly from the group which is at the origin of this work.
“Welcome to 2022 and the all new look of NCAA 14! Everything from the in-game scoring bug to the menus, fonts and 152 logos have been rebuilt and redesigned to match ESPN's 2022 style and give NCAA 14 a MUCH needed facelift.
“In addition to our new featured player loading screens, we have redesigned all pre-game overlays. Our new ESPN 2022 inspired theme brings all aspects of NCAA 14 to the modern era, delivering a completely new experience.
While no gameplay changes have been made to the title, the aesthetics of NCAA Football 14 have been completely revamped, and for the better.
Change for the better
Now that I have spent a lot of time with the game after installation, there is this addictive quality that makes the game feel new, and once again I have started a whole new dynasty just because of the effort and work that has devoted to the creation of this mod.
As I mentioned before, it doesn't change the gameplay in any way, but what it brings to the table in terms of new screens, logos, helmets, field art, and uniforms is just as valuable, if not more so. (Plus, hey, we still have a slider forum for NCAA Football 14.) Not only do these changes impact how the game loads and its menu system, but for me at least, it changes the experience of game as a whole and takes it to a level I've never experienced before.
There is an immersion factor that can be felt and appreciated, especially on the PC side, as it offers the ability to play in different resolutions. I'm playing NCAA 14 CFR Football on a rugged gaming PC that can run it in true 4K, and the experience is better than when the game was first dropped.
Those are big words, but the experience that has been created and delivered by installing the new College Football Revamped mod is exactly as they describe it.
How can I play this?
The question I often see regarding the CFR mod is "how do I play this?" That's a great question, and the answer is pretty straightforward because the developers have been outstanding in terms of community communication. There are three versions of the mod, one for the RPCS3 PS3 emulator (which is the easiest to apply), and for those who don't know, the mod is also available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game.
The mod is available to those who purchased the game physically or acquired it digitally for any of the respective digital stores, and the instructions walk you through the process for each version.
The installs of the console versions are a little more detailed, but again the developers have created some basic tutorials to help and assist when they can. They're a bit stretched in the help desk at the moment, but are looking to add people to the staff to help welcome all newcomers to the College Football Revamped experience.
Where is the mod and how to install it?
Another big question, and rightly so, is how do you get your hands on this mod? Luckily, there are solid walkthroughs on how to get the free CFR experience mod and how to install it, which I've linked below. They also have a Discord for those who need help or want to follow updates as they become available.
The main site has all three options listed and explains how to install them for each system.
I speak of this mod with adulation, and for good reason. These creators took one of my all-time favorites (and many others) and updated it as much as possible.
Although installing this mod may seem like a daunting task for many, especially on console, the developers have tried to create a simple and easy-to-understand process. For the PC side, it took me 10 minutes to download and install the mod. For the console side, other people who have tried and completed the installation told me that it took about 45 minutes to an hour.
Even though the mod is now available to play, the developers are still working hard and will continue to support the mod for the foreseeable future.
