Patchmaking tutorials for NBA 2K11.

Hex Editing: Court Colors and Reflections

Postby johndoe22 on Sun Oct 17, 2010 12:22 pm

First,

Download Edit Pad Pro, open it up. At the top click Search, and then Show Search Panel. It will pop up at the bottom. In the top box copy and paste this FFFFFFFF000000000000000000000000FFFFFFFF


and then find first.............ITS SHOULD LOOK LIKE THIS - everything below that highlighted area is the entire court

Image


Ok now Exit out of the search, You will see an x on the bottom right hand corner. and then scroll up a little. just enough so that your highlighted area is still visible on screen ..............like this

Image

Ok let do some business now

Image

ok the entire portion of the screen you are looking at is the OUT OF BOUNDS AREA UNDER THE BASKET. There are 5 section

1. Thats Floor Reflection during the actual game

2. Thats Floor Reflection during the intro

3. The Floor Reflection -Turn OFF setting during actual game - meaning ......no need to touch it

4. The Floor Reflection -Turn OFF setting during intro - meaning...........no need to touch it

5 Last is The Color Code. You can play with those number i have circled or you can just extract a color from another court

Then the cycle repeats itself as you scroll down into another portion of the court. You can work on the rest yourself. This is just a basic outline of it so you can understand it batter

Thanks: stickied for convenience


Are you planning on doing a tut for uniforms and global shadowing? If so did you want to keep it in the same topic?

If i do one for jerseys, I will start a new thread.

Global Shadowing is a bit complicated, i sort of got lucky with it. But jersey occlusion shouldn't be too difficult to comprehend

Well u have to learn how hex numbers work, in this case just change the 80 3f that i have the arrows pointed at to D0 40. I suggest u use original bulls court, as the layout is simple

Nicely done! (Y)

Though, do all the courts have the same structure?
If yes, there is a possibility to make a friendly editor...

its usually the out of bounds area first, then the wooden floor areas, and then the remainer of the colors......... starting with the paint, then the sideline, and ending with line colors. This is the basic order most of the time. But it could be different on some files

Damn it, I would try to change casket and out of bounds colors in CLIPPERS court, but I don't know how to do it :| (the CLIPPERS has new court for this season, but in my 2k10 I have the old one, that's why I'm asking...).

u may have to wait until the 3d mod tool becomes available for court editing, or you may be able to use another court file.

thanks again for this tutorial. i changed the color of the sixers court with your help. but i dont understand the numbers for the colors. i played with those numbers and it took me 2 hours to find the right color for the sixers court (it was basically the same color but darker). i just don't have a clue what those numbers mean. could you explain it maybe? in photoshop, colors have numbers, like #ff0000, this is normal red. but there are not divided into 3 parts of hex numbers like in editpad pro :?

Maybe it's stored in CMYK, not RGB format in the files?

You have to scroll down. the paint is not always in the same spot. But if you scroll down, you will see the word "normal" The paint colors are usually somewhere right after that.

I don't really know what numbers mean either. Sometimes it takes me 45 minutes to an hour to get the right color, and sometimes it takes me a lot less time than that. But It does take some work. Hopefully Vlad will be able to release a friendly editor to alleviate some of the problem you all are having.

Thanks for that, I'll try your digits, because I use 00 41 to replace 80 3F instead of D0 40... (Y)
