NBA 2K24 Kobe Bryant Edition Cover Art

Looyh has updated the Player Editor plugin for both the NBA 2K24 and NBA 2K23 Hook tools. In addition to existing features such as the ability to edit hairstyles, unlock shoe brands, and so on, the new versions of the Player Editor add compatibility with another of Looyh’s plugins, namely MyLEAGUE Plus.

You can download V1.1 of the Player Editor for NBA 2K24 here, and V1.8 of the NBA 2K23 plugin here. Once again, a big thanks to Looyh for all of his hard work, and for making these essential modding tools freely available to the community!

Latest NBA 2K24 & NBA 2K23 Hook by Looyh

NBA 2K24 Kobe Bryant Edition Cover Art

Looyh has released new versions of his Hook tool for NBA 2K24 (V24.0.4) and NBA 2K23 (V0.0.26). For those who are unaware, NBA2K_Hook is an essential tool in the creation and use of mods, adding support for a mods folder in NBA 2K23, and expanding the functionality of the in-built mods folder in NBA 2K24. The tool also supports plugins for modding, including a roster editor. It is not used for cheating online, which is something that we don’t support in this community.

The release notes for the latest version of both the NBA 2K24 and NBA 2K23 Hook are as follows:

  • Fixed an issue where some users experienced frame drops in the game under certain conditions when using encrypted mods (such as in player editing).
  • Fixed a resource leak caused by not closing the FindFirstFile handle when enumerating subdirectories. (No actual impact)

Download the NBA 2K24 version here, and the NBA 2K23 version here. A big thanks as always to Looyh for his continued work on the Hook and its various plugins! Without the contributions of talented individuals such as Looyh, our modding community would not have been able to grow and thrive as it has since we were founded back in 1996.

Monday Tip-Off: Sim Heads Are Not Casuals

Monday Tip-Off: Sim Heads Are Not Casuals

We’re at midcourt, and the ball is about to go up…it’s Monday Tip-Off! Join me as I begin the week here at the NLSC with my opinions and commentary on basketball gaming topics, as well as tales of the fun I’ve been having on the virtual hardwood. This week, I’m tipping things off with a rebuttal to the idea that basketball gamers who are sim heads are somehow casuals.

Since we’re all on the internet here, I’m going to assume that we’re all familiar with Harvey Dent’s line in The Dark Knight about either dying a hero, or living long enough to become the villain. It’s up there with Alfred musing that some men just want to watch the world burn; another line that the internet loves, especially wannabe nihilist edgelords. In any case, Dent’s observation can be applied to the real world as well. From people who tarnished their reputation, to simply finding yourself on the wrong side of the argument as time goes by, it’s possible to end up as the bad guy.

Of course, when it’s a matter of fandom infighting, “bad guy” is a relative term. We’re more likely to throw around a word like “casuals” to dismiss the opinions of people we disagree with, ostensibly because they just don’t get it. For a long time, gamers who played basketball games, but didn’t know or care much about the real sport, were the ones who were branded with the “casuals” label. While I don’t agree with the gatekeeping nature of that, it made sense in so much as sim games in particular were designed with hardcore hoop heads in mind. These days, sim heads are being called “casuals” by those who advocate for cheese and “stick skills” over realistic gameplay.

NBA 2K23 Patch 9.0 Released

NBA 2K23 Patch 9.0 Released

And so, we enter end game! The preview season for NBA 2K24 ramps up this week and its release is looming on the horizon, but there’s one more Season to play in NBA 2K23 MyTEAM and MyCAREER. As such, Patch 9.0 has come through for NBA 2K23 this week on all platforms. It should download automatically as long as you’re online; if it doesn’t, try restarting your Steam client or console, or checking for updates manually.

At this point, it seems that 2K has given up on official patch notes. However, there obviously aren’t any major fixes or changes taking place this late in the lifecycle of NBA 2K23, so we can take it as read that Patch 9.0 simply updates the game for Season 9 in MyTEAM and MyCAREER.

Although we don’t have any detailed notes once again, you can find the update histories for the Next Gen and Current Gen versions of NBA 2K23 over in our Wiki. Feel free to post any thoughts in the comments below, as well as join in the discussion in our NBA 2K23 Forum. Also, don’t forget to stay tuned for more details on NBA 2K24! I’ll be aggregating the news as it comes through, and Dee and I will be discussing the developments on the NLSC Podcast.
