Dumb Mondays: My Modding Now Versus 2007

This is Dumb Mondays, starting the workweek off with silly facts or some of my opinions and predictions that you may or may not find interesting. This week I am sharing a dumb something of mine and will be looking for and responding to your comments throughout the week.

One more week. Not even one more week, days and hours can measure the time between me typing this and the first substantial information drop on NBA 2K15 (and maybe even NBA Live 15 if they keep dueling). Believe me when I say that NBA Live 15’s ball looks amazing, but the endless speculation during this time of year is just that, endless. So this week I finally got to play in my sandbox that is NBA 2K14 and brought along my still shiny new toy RED MC. I put my head down and created. It was fun, but I realized halfway through my project that I was doing something very similar to what I did with NBA Live 07, but this time it look a lot less time.

Replay Fixes for NBA Live 2005-08

As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t have time to work on any roster updates for NBA Live 2005, 06, 07 and 08, or much else these days. Unfortunately that hasn’t changed – sorry! – but as I mentioned during Episode #88 of the NLSC Podcast, I did whip up some quick workarounds for an issue that’s present in Instant Replay in all of the aforementioned games.

While capturing some screenshots to update the galleries in our subsites, as well as stock up on images for our various feature articles, I was reminded of the annoying issue of the hide/show overlay button remaining on screen in Instant Replay; a small bug, but a pain when you’re trying to get some nice screenshots. I devised a workaround which uses a transparent texture for the hover effect on the button, and figured that I’d share it with the community as others might find a use for it.

Download the fixes here:

Once again, unfortunately I’m unable to work on any roster updates these days, so I respectfully request that you please stop asking me about them; pestering me about them is definitely not going to make me inclined to change my mind! For anyone who would like to use my rosters as a base to make updates of their own, feel free to do so, but I would appreciate credit somewhere if you do. I’d also recommend that NBA Live 08 users check out the NBA Action 15 mod, currently in progress. I have nothing to do with the mod however, so please don’t contact me about it.

The Friday Five: My 5 Favourite Basketball Video Game Commercials

The Friday Five

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! This is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, either as a list of five items or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.

I’m going with a lighter topic for The Friday Five this week, as I list my top five favourite basketball video game commercials. No doubt I’ll be back to covering topics with a little more substance sooner rather than later, but I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some memorable advertisements for NBA Live, NBA 2K and NBA Jam that got us talking about the games, or at the very least were entertaining to watch.

Just to clarify before I begin the countdown, I’m picking commercials and promotional spots here, as opposed to pure gameplay trailers. Including both in the one countdown would make for a long list and some very difficult choices, so picking my five favourite gameplay trailers is a topic for another day. With that said, here are my 5 Favourite Basketball Video Game Commercials!

Guide to Installing Patches (NBA Live 2005-08)

As I previously mentioned, we’re currently on the lookout for people who are willing and able to help us expand and enhance our library of Wiki articles, as we endeavour to create the definitive resource for basketball video games. Once again, I’d like to encourage anyone with a good knowledge of basketball video games to help us out with that by getting involved, whether it’s adding information on patching, or expanding our articles on game modes and gameplay elements.

To help get the ball rolling, I’ve added a long overdue guide to installing patches in NBA Live 2005, NBA Live 06, NBA Live 07, and NBA Live 08. Those of us who have been patching those games for a long time often take the process for granted, but up until now we haven’t had a comprehensive resource explaining just where to place patched files, or even the basic process of how the sgsm folder works. My hope is that this guide will be a handy reference that we can point to whenever there are questions on how to install patches, be they rosters, courts, jerseys, or whatever.

When I get a moment, I’ll also be adding a guide for NBA Live 2003 and NBA Live 2004, which use the slightly more complex CustomArt method. Until then, I hope you find the guide useful, and look forward to seeing a few more people lending a hand with the Wiki!

The Tuesday Triple: Awesome Old Mixes

This is The Tuesday Triple, where I attempt to break down random topics into three points, and maybe an “and one” if I need it. Similar to the established Friday Five by Andrew, the topics will be related to basketball video games and their communities as a whole.

Just like the wishlists, mix articles go best in groups of 3. So accompanying articles on my favorite MomentousCeltic mixes and my favorite mixes that I made, I am going to list three of my favorite “old” mixes. “Old” is a weird way of classifying these videos because I know Shady00018 has older ones, but I do feel like there is this subjective line about three to four years ago before the big YouTubers got popular. It will work well enough for this article’s purposes at least, so enough writing, let’s watch some mixes.

The Tuesday Triple: My Three Best Mixes

This is The Tuesday Triple, where I attempt to break down random topics into three points, and maybe an “and one” if I need it. Similar to the established Friday Five by Andrew, the topics will be related to basketball video games and their communities as a whole.

Before I start the very small countdown of my favorite mixes that I made, I want to remind new readers that I did a Tuesday Triple on MomentousCeltic’s Mixes. While my mixes are no where near as well done as MC’s, or any of the current mix making elite seen on YouTube, they still hold a lot of sentimental value to me. I actually underestimated how many mixes I have made over the years, and some of the favorites I had in mind for this article have aged terribly since I last watched them. Nevertheless, here are my three favorite basketball video game mixes that I made as of today.

Dumb Fact Monday: Playable Jay-Z

This is Dumb Fact Monday, serving up random facts about basketball video games that you may or may not find interesting.

It seems like only recently that we were all complaining about the gold swirls and menu equalizers in NBA 2K13, probably because it was only last year. Executively produced by Jay-Z, NBA 2K13 gained criticism for the presentation elements that were supposedly designed by the man himself. 2K themselves claimed that Jay-Z had his fingerprints all over the game, and articles came out about Jay-Z using his star power to get Scottie Pippen and Charles Barkley in last year’s game for the Team USA vs Dream Team hype. Aside from the presentation elements and his name on the box, Jay-Z was not included in the game’s celebrity team and was only shown in videogame form in the crowd of Net games.

ESPN Game Intro Logos for NBA Live 06-08 Updated

A post on our Facebook page reminded me that I never got around to updating the ESPN Game Intro Logo patches for NBA Live 06, NBA Live 07 and NBA Live 08 with the current NBA on ESPN logos, so I’ve gone ahead and whipped up new versions of all three releases. Download them at the links below!

2012/2013 Rosters for NBA Live 2005-08 Released

Yes, the long wait is finally over! My 2012/2013 roster updates for NBA Live 2005, NBA Live 06, NBA Live 07 and NBA Live 08 are out now and can be downloaded at the links below. Please note that the rosters are accurate as of March 31st, 2013 and thus do not include a couple of minor transactions that have occurred in the past couple of days. There will be a follow-up release within the next couple of weeks or so and possibly a couple during the Playoffs. As for continuing the rosters beyond this season, I’m still undecided for the moment, but I’ll keep everyone informed of my decision and future arrangements.

For now, you can pick up the new rosters at the links below:

NBA Live 07: Full Package | Roster Only | Support Thread
NBA Live 06: Full Package | Roster Only | Support Thread

I’ll need to repack the 06 update as it’s missing Mike Krzyzewski’s face. For now, simply download this pack and extract the files to your sgsm folder. A huge thanks once again to everyone for your patience, as well as the talented patchers who have helped out by contributing  so many fantastic art updates. Please enjoy the rosters!
