Ultimate Retro Roster NBA 2k20: V1 and V2 + New Season Rosters!

Postby Thunder Shaq on Sun Sep 08, 2019 4:14 am

This is the thread for my Ultimate Retro Roster and beyond.

I want to give a huge shout out to the following people for helping make this project possible. If you think you deserve a shoutout, but missing from this, just send me a PM!


PeacemanNOT- 1992 Team USA Jerseys (originally from: viewtopic.php?f=241&t=106204)
Pinoy21- 2008-09 Orlando Magic Jerseys
Shuajota- Bostjan Nachbar, Rasheed Wallace, and Carlos Arroyo Cyberfaces
Dee4Three- Retro court contributions https://forums.nba-live.com/viewtopic.php?f=258&t=107928&start=500#p2003231. He worked on retro cyberfaces check them out in his thread here: viewtopic.php?f=258&t=109230 Also some of his 2k17 portraits were used for this
bigticket0521- A heavy contributor to portraits created for Dee4Three's 2k17 UCTR which have been used in this roster.
sticky-fingers- Has done such a fantastic job with many courts, 2012 Team USA jerseys, 2013 Hollywood Nights Alternate jerseys, and helped me learn the CE tables in 2k19. Major contributor with Olympic jerseys
Mr.Star- Quite a bit of cyberfaces. Please check out his thread for more work: viewtopic.php?f=258&t=108675
trevorjpt33- Cyberface conversions, particularly the Reggie Miller for the roster, video tutorials with 3D accessories
ksmiz- for all his work on the CE tables which would make this roster impossible without him
looyh- for the NBA2k_Hook and roster editor, without this, the roster would be nowhere near as accurate and usable
2kspecialist -several cyberfaces used in this mod
Retroman - some cyberface conversions/retro jersey mods
Hova- Mikki Moore and Danny Fortson Cyberfaces
Glenski - Lorenzen Wright, Malik Rose, Stromile Swift, Micheal Williams, Dale Davis, etc.
Thunder2k20- Great work on various year-specific portraits and action shots
RayRay_953- Fantastic contributions to courts and year-specific jerseys (please check out them being showcased throughout the thread)
Simonn-Lee - Blue alternate Cavs jerseys for 2016 and 2017 Cavs. Young Tyson Chandler cyberface

Reminder: Only the MyLeague Ultimate Retro Rosters work in MyLeague without crashing



What you need to properly run all my rosters:
Mod Pack 1/3
Mod Pack 2/3
Mod Pack 3/3
NBA2K_Hook
Waigua Folder (the files and folder included in Mod Pack 1/3)







DISCLAIMER: As of 4/17/21, All my released rosters only need one Waigua folder and config file. All older mod packs from other threads will be outdated

INSTRUCTIONS, PLEASE download both the NBA2k_Hook and the mod files for best experience with this roster. Place both of these in your NBA 2k20 Folder


As of 4/17/21, there is only one Waigua Folder and 3 mod packs that covers all of my rosters:



1:Mod Pack 1/3:

https://www.mediafire.com/file/ij6h13pz ... ck.7z/file

Inside this Download:
- Mods Folder (this has two other folders in it: the Waigua folder with other necessary files and the Config file (this is outdated, please use the config in Mod pack 3/3) which goes in the NBA2k_Hook folder you must also download)
-SYNC.BIN File: If you purchased 2k20 on Steam and can connect online to the servers, you likely won't need to even worry about this file. This is more for the permanent "offline" users
- Roster Folder: Please use the updated rosters in Mod Pack 3/3 instead

If you are new to offline roster files, please watch a tutorial on how to download them properly:

TGsoGood made a great tutorial on this if you are lost:
phpBB [video]




I explain where the files should go in the folder names, but if necessary:

-waigua goes in your main NBA 2K20 directory folder

-2KWAIGUA.dll and dinput8.dll go in your main NBA 2K20 directory folder

-The Config file will go in your NBA2K_Hook folder that you must download separately (linked below)

-The roster files in the Roster Files folder will go in your remote folder for 2k20. As shown in the video tutorial above, you will have to create a roster file in game and then name whichever roster you want to download the same name and copy it over to replace it (Example: You create a roster in the game, it shows up as roster003, You would take my roster titled 2009Season, change that file name to roster003 and drag it over to your remote folder to replace it).


This is where my NBA 2K20 "Remote" folder is. It is likely that the numbers will not be exact for you, PLEASE watch a tutorial on how to install offline rosters if you have any trouble
Image




2: Mod Pack 2/3

https://www.mediafire.com/file/fc71uduv ... ns.7z/file




3: Mod Pack 3/3

https://www.mediafire.com/file/p02l7ymu ... _3.7z/file


-Includes rosters for 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2004-2016 Rosters. As well as updates to Ultimate Retro V1 and V2
-Draft Classes for 1997-2016
Refer to the offline roster tutorial above for help




4:NBA2k_Hook tool: Needed for courts, portraits, and jerseys to show up properly. PLEASE download this and place the hook folder in your main NBA 2k directory (the same area where you also will place your waigua folder)

viewtopic.php?f=258&t=108024





Rosters Included with the mod packs:

-Ultimate Retro Roster V1

-2016 Season Roster


Draft Classes included with the mod packs:
1997 Draft - 2016 Draft Classes (All drafts have 30+ players with some going up to 55+. Years pro glitch fixed)




*One thing to note is that I didn't adjust proper contracts for 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 season rosters. I wasn't originally planning on releasing these publicly, so I didn't do contracts for my personal use. I MAY update them with correct contracts for MyLeague in the future.

Also running into issues with 1999, 2000, and 2013 rosters in Myleague. Still unsure of the fix

Really love your roster for 2K19, well balanced, so happy to see your next project :D

With my new job, my schedule will be busier now, i dont think i could create all the missing courts for the teams you add.
But send me your list, I could have some stuff in the boxes that could help ;)

Suggestions ? Raptors 2018/19 :idea:

I’m in the same boat with a new job. I won’t have the same amount of time as I did a few months ago for the last roster. Mostly going to be evenings and weekends for me lol. Help as much or as little as you’re able to! I’ll strongly consider that Raptors team for their current slot. I won’t be rushing as much with this so take your time.

I've always used that Kenny Render for the 95 Rockets (as you know)

I believe if you swap in an appearance file from a player with his skin/body type, it will work.

It's been quite awhile since I messed with that.

No worries.

The appearance file is inside the players PNG.iff. Find someone with Kennys skin color, export both PNGs from 2K17 explorer, and swap the appearance file from that player into Kennys PNG.. Make sure the player has the same body type as Kenny as well.

Haven’t figured out the explorer tool yet, so no update on the Kenny Smith. I’m slowly creating players for the roster, but I don’t want to start working too much on the actual roster in case there are any major updates coming up with added legends

I spent much of yesterday going through cyber faces to find good lookalikes for players in my roster using the fictional faces they have in the files. Of course, the roster won’t really take off until I get a proper team editing table. For now, it’s mostly just creating missing players. Keep those suggestions and thoughts coming!

I’m probably not the best to ask, but it can probably be done when the roster editing tables get released

Never figured out the explorer tool. I’m hoping somebody fixes it for another roster and I’ll just take that one or something lol

1. This is awesome.

2. I humbly request that you consider the '99 Spurs for one of the slots. That was the best Twin Towers year, Duncan was a monster, Mario Elie was added, and the Spurs were an excellent team that is often overlooked because of the lockout. They went 15-2 in the playoffs, losing 1 game to KG's Timberwolves and 1 game in the Finals. In between, they swept the Kobe/Shaq Lakers and the Jail Blazers. Anyway, one of my favorite teams that never gets added. Instead we get rookie Duncan in '98. Womp womp.

I’ll take that Spurs team into consideration. I had them last year but didn’t see a lot of demand for them. Still in the planning phase while I wait for a team editor table

I'm strongly considering putting the 2010 Suns in the 2003 Suns slot. Marbury will still be represented on the 1998 Timberwolves, but I just think the '03 Suns are a bit unnecessary. I'm thinking I might add the 1983 Suns or possibly the 1976 Finals team instead.
