As I prepare content for our 20th Anniversary of NBA Live celebrations, I’m looking at creating a few different projects for the PC versions of NBA Live that I’ve long wanted to do, but never gotten around to doing. For the larger releases, I’m looking at releasing “demo” versions, which can be updated gradually as I have time to work on them and acquire the necessary art assets.
My latest project is an Ultimate Jordan Roster (name subject to change) for NBA Live 08, which I’d also be looking to convert for use with NBA Live 2005, NBA Live 06, and NBA Live 07. It contains historical teams celebrating Michael Jordan’s career (1984-2003): 15 of MJ’s teams and 15 selected opponents, one for each season he played in the NBA.
As with the Fictional Basketball League, this is something that I’ll be working on whenever I’m able to, so I’m not setting any release date. If a few people from the community would like to get involved, contributions of historical team/player art and the like would be very much appreciated!
In the meantime, you can download the very bare-bones raw demo here. If you have any comments, feel free to leave them below, or post them in my release thread.
