A new official roster update for NBA 2K12 is now available, containing rosters accurate as of April 27th 2012.

Make sure that you download the correct update for the game you’re playing. Please see the support threads for supplemental downloads as well as the download links for the Roster Only version, if you’d prefer to use the rosters with an alternate art pack.

Please note that the rosters were finalised on April 23rd and as such, do not include the signings of Xavier Silas and Derrick Byars, while also featuring late season lineups where several key players were resting. I anticipate releasing another set of updates in the next week or so which will feature those transactions along with lineups updated as of the first round of the 2012 Playoffs and any fixes/updates that may be required. Thanks again to everyone for your patience in recent months, I hope you enjoy the rosters!

Small Release: Dallas Mavericks 2011/2012 Alternate Jersey Portrait

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m still working on the 2011/2012 season roster updates for NBA Live 2005 through NBA Live 08 and anticipate releasing them within the next couple of days, just in time for the 2012 Playoffs. However, while assembling the jersey updates for the rosters, I discovered that we are currently missing an updated Jersey Select screen portrait for the Dallas Mavericks’ new alternate uniform.

As such, I’ve whipped up a quick patch which will be included in the roster update and in the meantime, can be downloaded here. Jersey portraits certainly aren’t my forte but hopefully this will suffice until one of the more experienced jersey patchers in the community can provide a better one. The update was made for NBA Live 08 but should work fine with NBA Live 2005, NBA Live 06 and NBA Live 07 as well. Enjoy, and keep it locked here at the NLSC for the release of the new rosters very soon!

Quick Update on the NBA Live 2005-08 Rosters

Just a quick update on the status of the NLSC roster updates for NBA Live 2005 through NBA Live 08. Unfortunately I encountered a minor setback over the weekend which has pushed back the release slightly, however I still anticipate having the rosters out within the next couple of days, just in time for the 2012 Playoffs.

At this point there are still a few art updates to put in place and check, along with some accessories and contract info to update. I’d estimate the NBA Live 08 roster to be about 98% complete; once it’s done, I’ll be completing the conversions for NBA Live 2005-07 and releasing all the roster updates right here on the NLSC. Thanks again to everyone for your patience and understanding, at long last we’re in the home stretch!
