Midnight Ballers Street Mod Released for NBA 2K13 PC

Over the last six months I have learned a lot in regards to NBA 2K’s arena files and how to customize them to my liking. The latest discoveries included lightmaps and custom crowd positions, as well as removing the extra people that surround each NBA court. With nearly two weeks left before NBA 2K14 is released on PC, I am happy to announce the release of my final mod for NBA 2K13 PC, Midnight Ballers.

The mod contains 33 one-texture courts based around R4zoR‘s floor file, along with an updated wooden EBC Rucker Park created by the man himself. bedwardsroy19 has allowed me to use his fantastic post-draft PS3 roster, and Tha King supplied updated versions of the Suns and Pelicans uniforms for me to modify. I also took the extra step and updated the old Community Ballahz mod from earlier in the year, which replaces the NBA players with terrible generic players you might notice around your local courts. You can check out a full review of the mod below.

I hope you all have had as much fun as I have customizing NBA 2K13 to our liking, it truly has been the most customizable PC basketball game to date, and hopefully 2K14 will be even more flexible. You can check out this fun mod by getting it in the NLSC Downloads Database, and be sure to check out my Forum Thread for what is coming in NBA 2K14. Enjoy!

NBA Street Vol. 2 Modding Resources Available

Along with the release of the 2013-2014 Rosters for NBA Street Vol. 2 (only the rosters, no art updates yet), I have compiled a resources thread in the Forum for all releases, tools and tutorials for playing and modding NBA Street Vol. 2 on the Dolphin Emulator. We are still early in the overall progress of the HD Remake mod, but I feel the combination of finished rosters and tutorials showing step-by-step on how to create and share texture mods for the game should speed things up a bit.

Be sure to check out the new Resources Thread, and the other NBASV2HDR threads in the Virtual Hardwood Forum.

It’s that time of the week again! Join Arcane, JaoSming and myself for Episode #40 of the NLSC Podcast, in which we discuss the latest NBA Live 14 and NBA 2K14 news and notes, new NBA jerseys and the motivation behind modding basketball video games.

  • We quickly recap the lone piece of NBA Live 14 news this week, an interview with executive producer Sean O’Brien.
  • The NBA 2K14 Community Team-Up event took place last week. Not too many impressions as yet, but early Twitter thoughts are positive.
  • It’s been revealed that blocked dunks will be back in NBA 2K14. Great news, obviously, but should it even be an announcement?
  • A behind the scenes glimpse of Steve Kerr’s recording sessions for NBA 2K lead to some discussion on presentation and possible TNT integration.
  • The Pelicans’ jerseys have been revealed, while the Suns’ new jerseys have been teased. Naturally, we opt to play fashion critic.

NBA Street Vol. 2 HD Roster Feedback Needed

With the ability to create custom rosters for the Gamecube and PlayStation 2 versions of NBA Street Vol. 2, the possibility of an HD fan remake got much better. While we have not yet begun updating the game just yet, we do need to figure out what players should represent each team in the game. With the five player limitation, it can be tough to weed out certain players in favor of others.

Rather than chose the rosters ourselves, we are looking for input and feedback on which players should make the final cut. Please take a look at the current rosters in this Forum Post. For additional information and progress on the update, please check out the video below and the NLSC Virtual Hardwood Forum.

NBA Street Vol. 2 Roster Editor for Gamecube and PS2

Thanks to Mazzochi for getting this started again, but I spent some time today creating profiles for Hex on Steroids, which effectively acts as a roster editor for NBA Street Vol. 2. Both the Gamecube and PlayStation 2 versions of the players and teams database files are supported, so we can edit the files and play them on PC emulators such as Dolphin and PCSX2. There is hope that this may eventually turn into a fan-made HD remake of this classic game, but there is still plenty of planning, organizing and texture making to do before that.

In the meantime, check out this Forum thread for more information. If you are interested in helping out, or editing the files yourself, you can get the profiles from the NLSC Download Database and watch the tutorial video below on how to use them.
