Resources for Continuing Leftos’ Open Source Tools

With Leftos joining the NBA 2K Development Team, he unfortunately will not be able to develop or update any tools for modifying the game. However, since all of his tools are open source, he has made the code available for any other programmers who would like to continue developing his tools and release them in his stead.

For anyone who would like to give that a shot, Leftos has posted some resources that provide an overview of the necessary steps and software to compile the source code. If you’re a programmer who would like to help the community out with some modding tools, be sure to check out the thread and by all means feel free to upload anything you create to our Downloads section!

NBA Stats Tracker Now Features Play-by-Play Editor

Leftos will be joining the NBA 2K Development Team in the near future, but in the meantime he’s still putting some fantastic work into the NBA Stats Tracker. Version 1.13 has just been released and includes a Play-by-Play Editor, which allows you to insert play-by-play information for any of the games that you’re tracking.

You’ll be able to put the PBP Editor to use with a series of upcoming features, including the ability to calculate boxscores based on play-by-play information and perform analysis such as partial stats calculations. Download it here and check out this thread for more info and support!

How to Use NBA Stats Tracker for YouTube & Stories

If you don’t know, Leftos’ NBA Stats Tracker tool is quite possibly the most impressive tool created for NBA games. Attempting to sum it up in a sentence is impossible. It extrapolates player, team and league statistics from exported CSV files (via the REDitor) and turns them into detailed scouting reports, league and team leaders and processed metric statistics that can be customized to your liking.

You can export this information to text editors which can then be utilized in Association or MyCAREER story threads, or even YouTube series for overlays or simply talking points during the video. Below is a tutorial on how to use the tool in its most basic form for a YouTube series or text story.

Now, this is a very basic look into what this tool is capable of. You can watch my more Detailed Overview if you’d like, but I would recommend checking out Leftos’ Official Forum Thread for the most accurately explained feature tours and information.
