NBA 2K12

Create a great 2012/2013 roster using Roster Merge & REDitor

We’re all excited for the new season of the NBA coming up, and we’re all following the progress of our teams and sharing the excitement of the new arrivals. And we also can’t wait. That’s why HAWK23’s Ultimate Base Roster hit a big spike when it became the first roster with complete 2012-2013 rookies in their proper teams. Only problem with that is that UBR only works in 82-games Associations and Seasons. Shorter schedules and MyPlayer don’t work at all. Also, Albys is renowned for his current roster, and he just brought us his final 2011-2012 roster, v6.  And as if that wasn’t enough, Nick completed v3 of his 2012 Draft Class, giving us the most complete and detailed rookies up to this point.

So, obviously, you’d love to have all that in one roster that works in every mode, right? Well, you can!

Visit our Forum to read my new guide on how to combine UBR, Albys’ roster and Nick’s draft class into a great 2012/2013 roster.

How to use NBA Stats Tracker with NBA 2K12

After quite some time, I decided to finally put up a video tutorial on how to use NBA Stats Tracker along with REditor and NBA 2K12 in order to not only fix your Team Stats, but also use all of NST’s analysis features on your career and keep track of how your team’s doing, scout your opponents, and get all the statistics and analytics that NBA 2K12 doesn’t give you.

During this video, you’ll see the exact steps you need to follow to setup your NST database, and what to do for each game of your career. You’ll also see all the features of NST at work, such as Metric Stats for the Box Score, Best Performers, as well as all the information of your team’s players you’ll be able to keep track of.

Remember to visit the tool’s thread if you have any questions, and to find out more.

On a final note, I really think NBA Stats Tracker, besides everything else, is also a really great tool for Dynasty story-telling, due to the automated detection of box scores and all the manual stat writing it will help you avoid. Also, you’ll be able to limit the stats features to a specific timeframe and check out how your players, team and opponents were doing between any two dates. I think that if you watch the two videos I’ve put up in my channel, the feature tour and this tutorial, you’ll think of even more ways to use NBA Stats Tracker to enhance your dynasty story.

Ultimate Base Roster Mods, Additions, and Retro Seasons

HAWK23‘s Ultimate Base Roster has been huge for the PC NBA 2K12 community and sure enough, the mod for NBA 2K12 is starting to see mods that work with and fit into it. Today, I released a roster with the Retro Teams Removed from the mod to allow better compatibility with My Player and Association modes. It also contains summer league rosters which take the current rosters and have the games played in similar venues to the summer league games going on right now.

sevin0seven has been releasing Expansion Teams for the UBR roster itself, ranging from ’09-’10 Cavs, ’00-’01 Blazers, ’68-’69 Celtics, and even ‘Playground Legends’ with players like Len Bias and Earl “The Goat” Manigault. This was done through a lone “expansion slot” HAWK23 left in the UBR roster for exported teams.

Finally, if hundreds of retro teams spanning seven decades of NBA history isn’t focused enough for you, HAWK23Inbarrayhoops1, and nuhmete have released full classic rosters for the ’92-’93, ’97-’98’98-’99, and ’06-’07 NBA seasons, respectively.

NBA Stats Tracker is now fully compatible with NBA 2K12

Excuse the shameless plugging, and let me clear my throat. -coughs- Ahem. With that out of the way let me go in bold, saying…

NBA Stats Tracker is finally fully compatible with any NBA 2K12 save!

Some of you may be saying, “er… okay. And? Wait, what the hell is NBA Stats Tracker anyway?” Good question. NBA Stats Tracker is a tool (made by me, Leftos), that started off as a workaround for the Team Stats bug in NBA 2K12. Team Stats would register incorrectly after each game you played in Association/Season/My Player, which would ruin the immersion for those paying attention to the team stats table in NBA.COM, or in the stat overlays in-game. However, due to my limited reverse engineering knowledge and experience (it’s not like Visual Concepts is going to give us maps around its save files anytime soon), the tool required work to get it to work with any save; a 20-step tutorial you had to get out of the way before your first game in order to use the tool. I was disappointed, and gave up.

But Vl@d Zola Jr. came to help, and the latest version of REditor implemented Team Stats, so now by using these 2 tools together, you can correct your team stats! Yay…? Click on Read More to find out what’s exciting about all this.
