There is a tool for importing or exporting EBO files, but kind of limited. However it is way better than EBO Editor or OEDit, as it allows export/import to 3D programs
https://wasserlasser.com/forum/index.ph ... eboviewer/

Using that I tried to edit the net, it worked

but animation is messed up.

But if that's not a problem then it can be published.

I always used the net from NBA Live 07 in NBA Live 06 (well, after it came out and we were able to swap it back in, obviously). It fixed the weird swish texture/model and while it isn't the best net in all of basketball games, it's an improvement on 06's original one.

So I contacted the developer of the NEBOViewer, Akshag. He told me how to use the tool correctly.

With his advice I fixed the net model, now animation works properly.

Nice words, thanks.

My next step was making the game widescreen. But so far I couldn't do anything. I tried to change some values with Hex editing, but no results.

However I found how to run the game in Windowed Mode. This finally makes it windowed, check step 4

The second bulletin;

  • Headline: The script that will convert 2K14 players to NBA Live 06 is %70 done, players.dbf generation is almost complete. It can autogenerate dunk package, destiny, and some more stuff with 2K14 attributes. appearances.dbf generations are not started yet. College, nickname, team databases are created.
  • Meanwhile I started researching speech IDs when I saw that at tail end of players.dbf. I found a lot of retro players. I will add them with nick_collison's speech updates.
  • Turns out that some IDs were missing. 67 players from NBA Live 2003 and NBA Live 2001 speech files are be imported.
  • I also succeeded to extract sound files from NBA Live 99 and NBA Live 98. This will give at least 61 new players.
  • I started making 2048x2048 courts using kodrinsky's court images. Hawks and Hornets have their set complete between 1984-2006. I will make more as time progresses.
    Image
  • The last update is that I created more missing jerseys. v1 version of MyNBA Eras will have all courts and jerseys updated.

I should have some more time over the holiday season as my weekly features are currently scheduled/prepared in advance, so I'll see what I can contribute. As I've said, I'd love to ease back into some modding.

Here is the first video of MyNBA Era Project.

It is 1984-85 Boston Celtics @ 1984-85 Philadelphia 76ers.

Custom court, no faces added. More uniforms will be added in near future. First release will have 3 seasons with complete jersey and court updates.

Here is what I want to be noticed:
- Accessories are updated
- Correct skintones
- Ratings are accurate and overall calculation is near to Live 06's
- Short shorts

4th Weekly Bulletin;

  • The first version of script is complete. However it needs revisions such as assigning random faces for players that has no custom CF, rating adjustments
  • Speaking of players with no CFs, I need to make a database for players that has CFs so the skintones can be changed according to CFs skintone. In first version, Andrew Toney had skin color 4, but his face was 5, so I had to manually change it. This will also be automatized.
  • I plan to make an universal coaches.dbf file that has all coach data between 1985-2006. Only the team IDs would change by season.
  • Also created courts for Chicago, Cleveland and Sacramento.
I will publish demo for 1984-85 season with 4 teams and accurate artworks: Boston, Denver, L.A. Lakers and Philadelphia, when the minor fixes are done.

Then I plan to make a sheet of what is missing and how people can contribute.

5th Weekly Bulletin;

  • I started working on the cyberface database. Added players from Paxson-for-5's retro project, BAYAG's projects, Tony Divence's and adapted all of the .fsh files for 2006 with scripting. Also added players from NBA Live 2005. Now I have a 1134-player database for players between 1984-2006, with some players having different ID's for multiple versions (eg. bald Kobe, afro Kobe, old Kobe). PlayerPKG will be assigned from this little database. So that we can have multiple versions of players at once.
  • More uniforms and courts are created.

I honestly can't wait to try this out when it is complete.

Great work.

6th Weekly Bulletin;

  • Completed first batch of rosters. Ratings of centers are sadly butchered but their stats are fine. They should do well regardless. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was 75 while Wayne Cooper was 72. But in URB rosters, Abdul-Jabbar is 7th overall at Center ratings while Wayne Cooper is 11th. IMO gameplay is important instead of overalls. Because other overalls look really good. Robert Parish is a 79, Kevin McHale is a 83. There are either very few +90 players, or none.
  • Now I need to complete all of the courts available and update all of the jerseys, so I can make the first release.
  • I found a "BACK TO GAME" navigation in EA Sports Online file. We need to find how to manipulate data inputs, menus etc. If we can then it might be possible to boot up a game with throwing a request, similar to multiplayer approach where you make a request to 3D engine.

So here are the first needs I have for this patch to grow to new, unseen heights:
  • Volunteers to find minimum 2048x2048 court textures for teams post 2007. I downloaded 4096 px width images from Flickr which looked beautiful when importing. But it looks like they removed 4k from site inspection. Now we can only view 2048 px width.
  • Portraits. Good quality of portraits, some I found over the years look average. They can be improved obviously.
  • Face making is not a priority as I can assign generic faces. A lot of are already made for other games and they can be easily converted with some batch hex editing.
  • Volunteers to investigate game files. It can be anything. aiact, animations, speeches, music, etc. Any help is appreciated! First we need to inject a hook on our own to game to modify whatever is inside game. There are some other projects made for other years in recent years that allows users to do a lot of stuff. Maybe we can even work on a managerial simulation, then pick data, inject it into 3D engine, boot up the game, play, then import the boxscore into simulation. Think of a better Dynasty mode with 3D engine of NBA Live. Someone is already working on this for FIFA 16.

I am planning to establish a Discord channel for people who would like to be serious contributors to this project. I would like to also remind that I don't rush for dates, this is a project made for both fun and self-development, this is a hobby after all.

7th Weekly Bulletin;

  • 1984-85 roster is done and available to play in-game. However there are missing stuff.
  • Courts are 90% done. At least courts for seasons until 1987-88 are done.
  • Jerseys are not done. I need to create some of them for v1 release.
  • Portraits are a big gap. Quality photos are needed.
  • Oh by the way, here is a preview video for 1984-85 season.

No, I didn't use it for players yet, but I saw you made a patch for Derrick Rose back then, how did it happen?

Yes I did that. I used hair.ebo (can open to neboviewer) converted to headshape. But It took me a lot of time to do.

I liked your first response. I don't rush anyone to do anything. This is a long-term project that I am working on and has no deadlines. Feel free to contribute, anytime.
