No worries! I hope I didn't sound like I was pressuring for a release. Just making sure I didn't overlook it. Take as much time as you need, looking forward to it (Y)

Nope! You're good! We should've just put this release online right after servers went down. O'well. Just taking a little longer for this next update, but its massive!

Sneak preview of what's coming......although the photos are going to take some time for all the rosters. Not sure which ones will be released first with portraits, but this is causing a significant delay. :)

The portraits look great! Is the update going to include 1994-95 season? Also wondering if you are planning to go forward through the 90's as well as backwards through the 80's?

This next update won't include the 94-95 season. Had a problem with the 93-94 and most of it needed redone. The next release will include offline rosters for 89-94 seasons (which tons of CFs and some other exciting changes). These are massive updates that will allow the 88 and 95 seasons to come out fairly quickly.

The 87 is coming along nicely though and the 95 will turn around fairly quickly actually. It's soooo much faster going forward vs backwards.

EVERYONE: I NEED FEEDBACK

I THINK, I have finally figured out how to add in stats! There is currently a small issue and I haven't figured out how to fix it yet. If I can fix it, then great. I will.

However, if I cannot, would people still want stats added anyway?

Currently if I add stats in the "previous season" will show up as the 17-18.

PROS: Personally, I don’t care since I’m playing myleague with these rosters anyway and the next year will show up as 18-19 - I'd rather have stats than no stats. It isn't possible to change the year myleague starts either. 100% confirmed. Wish would could. It's the same problem the 2k14 MOD has. However, it does makes it a nice transition for those that play myleague because you aren't going from 88-89 stats into 18-19 stats when you start a myleague. It 17-18, then 18-19, etc.

At the same time, I don’t like having wrong years either. Drives me nuts.

CONS: Well, if you are looking at the 89-90 roster the 88-89 stats would be listed but will be listed as 17-18. the 87-88 stats will be listed as 16-17, etc., etc.

We'd really love feedback. The only roster that will have Stats to begin with will likely be the 87-88 season and as a beta test (because anytime you start editing this stuff crashes can happen). So we may release two rosters for that season (1 with stats and 1 without). I'd like to get feedback on these BEFORE I start work on the 86-87.

PS - Lots of good changes coming soon! We can change the rules in the current game to reflect the rules of the 80s and 90s. For example, we can make the backcourt violation 10 seconds now using a roster by default.

I think the aesthetics of having previous season stats outweighs the drawback of the incorrect year, which as you noted is already an issue (and always has been with retro rosters). If it can be done without causing technical issues and you're keen for all that data entry, I'd say go for it!

I am fine with the incorrect stat years..we'll know they are for previous years based on the starting year. :)

Love the work! I play MyLeague, so it would be good to see the previous season's stats. Even if the years aren't right, that's alright. More than happy :applaud:

Hey Guys!

Man, I have drug this out forever haha. Okay, so we've come across major changes that we've been able to add/change over past few months. We REALLY needed to figure these out before we moved on or released anything new. For example, I am adding in stats for the 93-94 season now to players. This will make it 1000 times easier as we move into the 1995 season. Appreciate everyone's patience. We are trying to crank through and get an update out ASAP. Basically, one that includes new CFs, some tweaks, and improvements, but it likely won't include stats yet. I am trying to nail down a time frame. I am told "soon" by the person adding in graphics.....

Hey, first off. Amazing project been playing it since it first came out as a '92 roster. I've never gotten super deep in the franchise mode, but I started one with the 1990 my league roster as the Mavs. I came across a problem in the playoffs, I was able to play all 5 games of the first round no issue, but when I got to the second round it just gets stuck at 99% when out loads in. The pregame show continues to roll until it finishes then it just stays at the match-up screen that says "next". It's not frozen as the music is still playing and I can edit the lineups, but it just stays stuck at 99%. I tried this as the home team and the away team and same problem. I simulated to the playoffs using the 1992 my league roster since that was the original roster and came across the same problem, 1st round works but 2nd round stuck at 99%. Was curious if anyone else has encountered this problem or maybe you're already aware of it and it's getting fixed in a future update. I don't think its an installation issue for me since everything else works flawlessly.

Okay, looks like starting the game with simcast then jumping in fixes the problem. So no big deal. Again, amazing roster can't believe all the work thats gone into this

Would any kind user be able to help out one of the unlucky ones who didn't manage to download the roster files before the servers went down?

I put about 180 hours into 2k19 when it was online, figured I'd gotten my enjoyment out of it and uninstalled it early 2020. However earlier this year I got a craving to revisit my created teams so thought I'd reinstall it again. Realised the servers went down and unfortunately I lost all my older saves due to a fresh Windows install but figured I'd scratch the retro itch with some classic rosters that I figured I could find online somewhere. Found this project which is just unbelievable, and have been waiting patiently since then for an offline release.

Completely understand the project is still in progress, and that an offline release is still planned, but I've been through every post in this thread and unless I'm an absolute idiot (which may be the case) it doesn't seem the roster files/draft classes were ever made available outside of 2K Share.

I was wondering if anyone might be able to provide me with a copy, just so I can actually revisit the glory that was early 90s NBA? I understand practically everyone that wanted to use this already had their chance to grab the files, but I missed out by a few months and I've been hanging to put this mod through its paces since then.

Hey Guys!

I know people have been asking for this for offline use for awhile.

I will release 89-94 this weekend (and hopefully tomorrow). It will be the same release as done in Dec (actually - the 1994 will have some updates to it now that I think about it, but it's the only one). I just need to organize it some, get the files, etc. It will take some time, which is one reason I haven't done it. :)

Stay tuned! I'll release the rosters more quickly this weekend. I am uploading files now. Depending how my evening goes, I might get this out late tonight! I will try and add draft classes ASAP this weekend too (might be tomorrow for those).

**** THIS WEEKEND'S RE-RELEASE WILL BE A QUICK FIRE RELEASE FROM DEC ****

If files don't load/CFs missing/shoes missing, please let me know. It's likely just missing some files.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

PREVIEWS:

ITEMS FOR NEXT RELEASE - THE ONE EVERYONE HAS BEEN WAITING 5+ MONTHS ON (anything mentioned below is subject to change):

NEW CFs: Lots of new ones added for the 1988 roster.

--- These are players that might have played their last year during 1988, we didn't have them made yet, but played huge roles in the 80s for rosters as we move backwards. Joe Barry Carroll, Mel Turpin, Otis Birdsong, Trupucka, etc.

PORTRAITS: Yes! Portraits for every player! So awesome! I am not 100% sure where we are on this actually, so don't hold me to this. As you can imagine, this takes FOREVER.

STAS: This takes forever to add. Lots of data entry. If I had more time, I could knock this out quickly. The 1994 roster will be the first to have stats and the 1988 will be the next one (need these done before we can move forwards or backwards to keep from repeating work).

CUSTOM ARENAS: I believe this is being based off of the 1992 arenas (or very close). Think Boston Garden with all the banners from the Bruins, etc. This will just include major stadiums for now and I'm not 100% what's been made anymore: Knicks, Bulls, Celtics, Lakers, and 1-2 more? I'm not sure.
