Custom Soundtracks Now Possible for NBA 2K13 PC

Jay Z

The day has finally come, we can now have custom soundtracks on the PC version of NBA 2K13. After all the work nesa24 has done, he provided Leftos with the needed information and just hours later a tool was created. The NBA 2K Audio Editor currently only supports NBA 2K13’s menu music file, but since NBA 2K11, 2K12 and other audio files such as commentary share the same format, it is possible to see an expanded usage of the tool. Below you will find a step-by-step video tutorial I created, which goes over the tool, how to select viable songs, how to shorten songs if need be and of course, how to import them into the file.

Please make your way over to the Forum Thread and say thank you to nesa24 and Leftos for this fantastic tool!
