I’m pleased to announce that at long last, I anticipate releasing new roster updates for NBA Live 2005 through NBA Live 08 by the end of the week. At this point, all of the necessary players have been created, player art is in place, the rosters for all 30 NBA teams and the East and West All-Stars are up to date and years pro have been updated to include the 2010/2011 season.
Over the next couple of days, I will be finishing up editing ratings for players who were in last year’s rosters, ensuring all team art is in place and up to date, updating things like salaries, team records and accessories, adding this year’s Rookie Challenge rosters and putting on other finishing touches. Once the NBA Live 08 update is complete, I’ll be converting it for use with NBA Live 07, NBA Live 06 and NBA Live 2005. As soon as that’s done, I’ll be uploading the new rosters and announcing the release here on the NLSC.
A huge thanks to everyone for their continued patience and support. I am getting the rosters out much later than I would’ve liked, due to a combination of the lockout dampening my enthusiasm, burnout on making the updates and other responsibilities continually getting in the way, however the release is finally in sight. At this point I’m not sure about the future of the updates beyond this season, especially if NBA Live 13 does come out on PC, but I will evaluate the situation around the time of the 2012 Draft as I’d like to do what I can to keep the old games alive for those who still play them. In the meantime, check back soon for the new rosters!
