NLSC NBA Live Roster Links Fixed

Andre Igoudala & Deron Williams in the NLSC Roster Update for NBA Live 08

Now that we’re on our new server, and everything is set up and running normally again, I’ve been trying to tie up a few loose ends. To that end, I’ve re-uploaded my roster updates for NBA Live 2005, NBA Live 06, NBA Live 07, and NBA Live 08 PC, which had been stored on a file server that we no longer have access to. The files are now on our new server, and available to download here:

Please note that these are the same 2013 season rosters that I released three years ago. They have not been updated in any way, just re-uploaded for archive purposes. Furthermore, to pre-empt the inevitable question, this is not an announcement of any future NLSC roster updates for any of those games. I’m just fixing some broken links so that our file archives are complete, and my old releases remain available for anyone who wants them.

Having said that, there is another reason that I’m making sure that those old roster updates are still available. If anyone in the community would like to use them as a base to create their own current rosters for those games, please feel free to do so. I know that there are still people interested in updating and playing the last few PC versions of NBA Live, so I’d like to help out by adopting an open source approach with my previous updates. All I ask is that you give me credit somewhere, as I have spent a lot of time on the roster updates for all four games over the years!

As always, a big thank you to everyone who supported my efforts while I was maintaining the NLSC roster updates for those games; I appreciate all the downloads and kind words over the years! Hopefully, you can still get some enjoyment out of them as-is, or put them to use in making brand new updates. If you’d like to learn more about editing rosters, be sure to check out these DBF Guides in the NLSC Wiki.

NBA Live 16 Receives Minor Offseason Roster Update

Derrick Rose on the New York Knicks in NBA Live 16

While EA Sports have previously mentioned that they have no concrete plans to release any further roster updates for NBA Live 16, it seems that we may be in luck after all. A very minor offseason roster has been pushed through featuring a few of the pre-Draft moves, such as the trade that sent Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks.

The roster is dated July 7th, so it was obviously finalised before any free agent signings were made official. As such, Kevin Durant is still on the Oklahoma City Thunder, Dwyane Wade is still on the Miami Heat, Dwight Howard is still on the Houston Rockets, and so on. With many players now signing the contracts they agreed to at the beginning of free agency, those moves should be included in any future roster updates.

There aren’t any rookies in the new roster either, but if the offseason roster updates do continue, it seems possible that they might be added. As demonstrated in this Tweet from Ty Stover, Manager/Marketer at EA Sports, the team is using the Summer League to get the rookies in to have their faces scanned. That would obviously provide them with assets they can not only use with the console version of NBA Live 17, but also roster updates for NBA Live 16.

With NBA Live 17 being delayed until early 2017, pushing through offseason roster updates for NBA Live 16 is a great way to maintain brand awareness, and promote goodwill with basketball gamers. It’s something that we’ve discussed at length on the NLSC Podcast, and I’m glad to see it happening. Hopefully, EA will continue to update the rosters through the offseason, from free agent signings to this year’s rookie crop. We’ll be sure to keep you posted of any further developments. In the meantime, see below for a couple of screenshots of Derrick Rose and Robin Lopez on their new teams.

Wayback Wednesday: NBA Live 95 Patching

1997/1998 Rosters from Lutz's NBA Live 95 Roster Patches

Welcome to Wayback Wednesday, your midweek blast from the past! This is a feature where we dig into the archives, look back at the history of basketball gaming, and indulge in nostalgia. Check in every Wednesday for retrospectives and other features on older versions of NBA Live, NBA 2K, and old school basketball video games in general. You’ll also find old NLSC editorials re-published with added commentary, and other flashback content.

For as long as the NLSC has been around, so has the NBA Live patching community. In 2008, patching – or modding, as it’s more frequently called these days – finally came to NBA 2K, when NBA 2K9 became the first game in the series to be released on PC. As a community, we’ve been able to do some amazing things for both NBA Live and NBA 2K: comprehensive multi-season roster mods, enhanced textures for team and player art, and even changes to the animation files, to name but a few. We’ve hit some roadblocks along the way – as NBA 2K15 and NBA 2K16 modders can attest – but it was pretty difficult back in the days of NBA Live 95, too.

Thanks to the efforts of our founders, Tim, Lutz, and Brien, it was possible to create custom rosters for NBA Live 95, and eventually, custom art files as well. Compared to what they were able to achieve with the editing tools for NBA Live 96 onwards, creating rosters for NBA Live 95 was much trickier, and a lot more finicky. Through going back and creating the Definitive roster patch for NBA Live 95 as part of our 20th Anniversary of NBA Live content, as well as putting Stephen Curry into the game for last week’s feature, I was reminded of both the fun and the frustration of patching NBA Live 95.

With patching/modding being such a big part of what we do here at the NLSC, I thought it’d be interesting to look back at what the community had to work with in the early days. So let’s indeed take a look back…way back…
