Primacy Ratings Fixes for NBA Live 06-08 (Default Rosters)

Kobe Bryant often suffered from Primacy Rating Recalculation (NBA Live 06)

I recently whipped up a few fixes for the Primacy ratings in the default rosters of NBA Live 06, NBA Live 07, and NBA Live 08. These fixes are intended to address the issue of Primacy ratings being recalculated whenever there are trades or injuries in Dynasty mode, a problem that unfortunately occurred in all three of those titles. The fixes are simple, consisting of a batch file that will restore all of the original Primacy ratings.

For those who are unaware, a player’s Primacy rating is what determines his place in the pecking order in terms of shot attempts, both in gameplay and simulation. The recalculation is intended to adjust shot distribution following trades and injuries, but the results aren’t always desirable, nor are the original ratings restored when players are fully healed and back in the lineup. This generally resulted in prominent scorers putting up far less points than they should have.

While the current roster updates that I used to release for NBA Live included their own fixes for Primacy ratings, I never bothered to release a version that was intended for use with the original rosters. It wasn’t until Breems reminded me of the issue in his story topic – which uses default rosters for NBA Live 06 – that it occurred to me that it would be useful to have fixes based on the original files. As such, here they are:

Once again, please note that these fixes are only intended to be used with the default rosters. If you are using one of the old NLSC roster updates, please use the included fix to ensure that all of the newly added players are updated accordingly. Hopefully, the retro gamers in our community can put these overdue fixes to good use! Thanks again to Breems for the heads up, and for testing the NBA Live 06 version.

March Modness: NBA Live 18 Title Screen for 2005-08

NBA Live 18 Title Screen

I’m tipping off my own contributions to March Modness with my first mod release of the month: an NBA Live 18 Title Screen for NBA Live 2005-08!

Taken from the PlayStation 4 version of NBA Live 18, this will replace the final title screen you see before the main menu comes up. Although it’s hosted in the NBA Live 08 section of our Downloads database, it’s also compatible with NBA Live 2005, NBA Live 06, and NBA Live 07 PC. Unfortunately I’ve had to resize and crop it a little to fit the art file, but most of the screen is still visible. It should hopefully make a fine addition to any other 2018 season releases from our community.

You can download the mod here. Be sure to stay tuned for more March Modness releases!

Wayback Wednesday: NBA Live 98 & 08 Trivia

Roster Player dunks the basketball in NBA Live 98

This is Wayback Wednesday, your midweek blast from the past! In this feature, we dig into the archives, look back at the history of basketball gaming, and indulge in some nostalgia. Check in every Wednesday for retrospectives and other features on older versions of NBA Live, NBA 2K, and old school basketball video games in general. You’ll also find old NLSC editorials re-published with added commentary, and other flashback content. This week, I’m offering up some trivia about NBA Live 98 and NBA 2K18.

NBA Live’s hiatus officially ends this week with the release of NBA Live 18. From playing the demo and reading a couple of the early reviews, I would have to say that the game definitely still has room for improvement, but has also made some pleasing strides since its reboot in 2013. I’m quite looking forward to playing NBA Live 18, but the title does make me reflect on how long I’ve been a part of the community. Before I took over the NLSC, I remember visiting it and checking out the news when NBA Live 98 was the upcoming game. By the time the preview season for NBA Live 08 rolled around, I was covering it myself here on the NLSC.

Since NBA Live 18 will be out in a couple of days, I thought it might be fun to look back at the previous two NBA Live games that were set in a season ending in eight. I’ve already posted an in-depth retrospective of NBA Live 98, and one is in the pipeline for NBA Live 08 as well, but these are some quick trivia notes about both games that I hope you will enjoy. With that being said, let’s take a look back…way back…

Wayback Wednesday: Quick Pick Play in NBA Live 08

Quick Pick Play Menu Option in NBA Live 08

This is Wayback Wednesday, your midweek blast from the past! In this feature, we dig into the archives, look back at the history of basketball gaming, and indulge in some nostalgia. Check in every Wednesday for retrospectives and other features on older versions of NBA Live, NBA 2K, and old school basketball video games in general. You’ll also find old NLSC editorials re-published with added commentary, and other flashback content. This week, I’m taking a look back at Quick Pick Play in NBA Live 08.

Custom teams were once a staple of both NBA Live and NBA 2K, from the original four squads in NBA Live to the fully customisable teams in later games. Unfortunately, neither game currently features custom teams, at least in the traditional sense. NBA 2K has expansion team creation and team relocation and rebranding in MyLEAGUE and MyGM, but the old method of adding a new team to a roster is no longer available. NBA Live 2000 was the last Live to feature custom teams, and as such, they became a popular Wishlist item. In NBA Live 08 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, EA Sports tried to grant that wish by way of a new mode: Quick Pick Play.

It’s another mode that probably isn’t too well-remembered, even among hardcore NBA Live gamers. However, like a lot of long-forgotten features in basketball video games, it’s worth another glance all these years later. Let’s take a look back…way back…

Wayback Wednesday: FIBA Teams in NBA Live 08

Team USA, one of the FIBA Teams in NBA Live 08

This is Wayback Wednesday, your midweek blast from the past! In this feature, we dig into the archives, look back at the history of basketball gaming, and indulge in some nostalgia. Check in every Wednesday for retrospectives and other features on older versions of NBA Live, NBA 2K, and old school basketball video games in general. You’ll also find old NLSC editorials re-published with added commentary, and other flashback content. This week, I’m taking a look back at the FIBA teams in NBA Live 08.

Bonus teams and content are something that we arguably take for granted in basketball video games these days. Both NBA Live and NBA 2K used to feature Decade All-Star teams, and of course, 2K has boasted an impressive selection of historical teams in recent years. Euroleague teams have also been featured in NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, as well as the past few NBA 2K titles. However, the interest in bonus teams really picked up after a selection of national squads was added in NBA Live 08, along with a mode representing the FIBA World Championship (now the FIBA World Cup).

The FIBA teams were a popular choice for bonus content in a few NBA Live titles, and I’m sure that many gamers would like to see them return. Let’s take a look back…way back…
