Patching & Modding: Tips for Getting Started

One of the first things that most people discover when they join our community here at the NLSC, or indeed what brings them here in the first place, is our collection of downloads for NBA Live and NBA 2K. Usually after trying out a few updates and marvelling at the skill and creativity of the talented individuals in the community, a lot of people ask the question: How can I do this myself?

We have a collection of tutorials that teach you the specifics of making different kinds of updates for NBA Live and NBA 2K, but I thought it might be helpful to compile some general tips on how to start making your own patches and mods. It’s always nice to see new people trying their hand at making updates for their fellow gamers, so I hope this article will prove to be useful for those of you looking to join the ranks of patchers in our community.

New Poll: Playing basketball video games online and offline

Our previous poll asked “Do you consider yourself a sim or arcade player when it comes to basketball video games?” It appears as though most folks around these parts seek realism from their virtual basketball experience, with 67% of voters identifying themselves as sim players compared to only 8% who consider themselves arcade players. A further 25% saw themselves as being somewhere in between.

NLSC Forum Discussion: Journeyman Shaq

Unquestionably one of the greatest and most dominant players in the history of the NBA, Shaquille O’Neal’s services have been sought out by a number of teams throughout his career. He’s also been one of the most wanted players in NBA video games, with the Diesel changing uniforms and landing all over the league in several Dynasty and Association games in years gone by.

NLSC Forum user badreligionau – who also happens to have one of the best Dynasty stories going – has started a discussion called Journeyman Shaq, with the aim of collecting screenshots of Shaq on all the different teams that he’s ended up with during the course of Dynasty and Association games. You’re also invited to come up with city-specific nicknames for all of Shaq’s virtual stints around the league. Eleven teams are currently represented, including five of the six teams he actually played for, so join in the fun!
