Small Release: Dallas Mavericks 2011/2012 Alternate Jersey Portrait

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m still working on the 2011/2012 season roster updates for NBA Live 2005 through NBA Live 08 and anticipate releasing them within the next couple of days, just in time for the 2012 Playoffs. However, while assembling the jersey updates for the rosters, I discovered that we are currently missing an updated Jersey Select screen portrait for the Dallas Mavericks’ new alternate uniform.

As such, I’ve whipped up a quick patch which will be included in the roster update and in the meantime, can be downloaded here. Jersey portraits certainly aren’t my forte but hopefully this will suffice until one of the more experienced jersey patchers in the community can provide a better one. The update was made for NBA Live 08 but should work fine with NBA Live 2005, NBA Live 06 and NBA Live 07 as well. Enjoy, and keep it locked here at the NLSC for the release of the new rosters very soon!

Quick Update on the NBA Live 2005-08 Rosters

Just a quick update on the status of the NLSC roster updates for NBA Live 2005 through NBA Live 08. Unfortunately I encountered a minor setback over the weekend which has pushed back the release slightly, however I still anticipate having the rosters out within the next couple of days, just in time for the 2012 Playoffs.

At this point there are still a few art updates to put in place and check, along with some accessories and contract info to update. I’d estimate the NBA Live 08 roster to be about 98% complete; once it’s done, I’ll be completing the conversions for NBA Live 2005-07 and releasing all the roster updates right here on the NLSC. Thanks again to everyone for your patience and understanding, at long last we’re in the home stretch!

New NBA 2K12 Official Roster Update (April 20th) Now Available

A new official roster update for NBA 2K12 has gone live today, containing rosters accurate through April 20th 2012. As long as your game is up to date with the official patch and your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 is connected to the Internet, the new roster will be downloaded automatically when you start the game. Once the roster has been downloaded, use the Reset Roster function under the Options Menu to load it.

As usual, I’ve updated this pack with the latest roster and online data files for PC users who would like to update their game manually. As noted by the NBA 2K Insider, Carmelo Anthony, Danny Granger, Paul Pierce and Metta World Peace have received boosts to their ratings in the latest update. Be sure to follow the NBA 2K Insider here on Twitter if you would like to provide feedback for future updates.

Roster Updates for NBA Live 2005 through NBA Live 08 Coming This Week

I’m pleased to announce that at long last, I anticipate releasing new roster updates for NBA Live 2005 through NBA Live 08 by the end of the week. At this point, all of the necessary players have been created, player art is in place, the rosters for all 30 NBA teams and the East and West All-Stars are up to date and years pro have been updated to include the 2010/2011 season.

Over the next couple of days, I will be finishing up editing ratings for players who were in last year’s rosters, ensuring all team art is in place and up to date, updating things like salaries, team records and accessories, adding this year’s Rookie Challenge rosters and putting on other finishing touches. Once the NBA Live 08 update is complete, I’ll be converting it for use with NBA Live 07, NBA Live 06 and NBA Live 2005. As soon as that’s done, I’ll be uploading the new rosters and announcing the release here on the NLSC.

A huge thanks to everyone for their continued patience and support. I am getting the rosters out much later than I would’ve liked, due to a combination of the lockout dampening my enthusiasm, burnout on making the updates and other responsibilities continually getting in the way, however the release is finally in sight. At this point I’m not sure about the future of the updates beyond this season, especially if NBA Live 13 does come out on PC, but I will evaluate the situation around the time of the 2012 Draft as I’d like to do what I can to keep the old games alive for those who still play them. In the meantime, check back soon for the new rosters!

ThaLiveKing’s NBA Live Advisory Council Report

Steve (aka ThaLiveKing) has posted a detailed report on his experience at the NBA Live Advisory Council event here in the NLSC Forum. As with the other reports that have been posted so far, not much can be said about the game itself at this point due to a Non Disclosure Agreement, however Steve echoes the sentiments of his fellow Council members as far as having positive impressions of NBA Live 13, the Dev Team at EA Tiburon and the productivity of the event.

Be sure to check it out and show Steve some appreciation for a comprehensive and well-written report. Also, don’t forget to check out Corey Andress’ report here, as well as Mario Drake’s Minati Journal over on the official NBA Live forums.
