The tenth Developer Insight for NBA 2K12 has been posted over on the official Facebook page. This time, senior game designer Mike Wang checks in to talk about the controls in NBA 2K12.
Mike begins the Insight talking about the improvements to ballhandling in NBA 2K12, including the removal of the “hunchback” dribbling animations, refinements to speed and explosiveness of players, the blowout dribble and sizeups. He goes on to talk about the new tech used in shooting controls and Signature Styles called Shot Compositing, improvements to the code for changing shots and the “flick flick” shots and some of the defensive tools that can be used to counter the new and improved offensive moves. Finally, Mike mentions some changes to free throw shooting in this year’s game including more realistic timing windows and error margins depending on a player’s free throw shooting ability.
