by going through the tutorial so you know how to edit the different lines on the court.

if you cant figure out how to install programs, 3D editing is going to be beyond your skills.

get the original file, export that wood part and import it into your new one. For some reason this year little screwups to the UV Maps sometimes occur

When editing a headshape, is there a way to "link/group" all of the parts together (eyes, eyelids, headband, headshape, teeth, etc) so I can scale them all at once?

When in blender, I can only seem to do one at a time, even though I "select all". Just selects all from that certain group.

i do not know of a way to edit multiple "scenes" at a time in blender. If you google it, the different parts are called scenes iirc.

@JaoSming Thanks for an awesome tutorial. When editing cyberfaces though I'm having a bit of trouble getting the face I edited in Blender to appear ingame. I've imported it back into the Mod Tool and then dropped the .iff back into the 2k12 dir, but no luck. Is it the model 3 or model 6 in the .iff file I should be exporting for editing?

Model 3 (4 in some .iff's) is the hi quality one, that's the one that you need to be focusing on. The second is the low quality version for when they go to the bench, etc.

I tried the 2 ways but the same result :S

Thanks too

more ideas?¿



Only time I've had that happen to me is when working with a headshape pulled from NBA 2K9.
The headshape looks how it should but it is miles above the grid to begin with, and about 200x bigger than the 2K12 headshapes.
Obviously you can scale it down to the right size and pull it down to the right position, and even link the bits you want into a new scene as per wilson's conversion tutorial, but I think it's got something to do with the original larger range of the 2K9 grid, but I don't know enough about the program to try and prove/disprove this theory.

Here's what I mean:

gotta use the old version for importing and exporting. If you are having issues with the program, google the issue rather than post here since there are whole communities dedicated to Blender. Once you find the answer, please post it here though.

Hey Jao, can you let us know what the different parts of the headshape "do". Namely the eyes and everything connected to the eyes. I've been experimenting, but I can't be 100% sure that I'm doing anything to it. The eyeballs, I know, the eyelashes, I know. But the other two, the one that looks like very small sunglass lenses over the eye lid/sockets, and then the other one that begins near the eye lid, and goes halfway back the head, in a cone shape. Just really unsure on what they do.

Also, does anyone know if the size of a mouth "box", has any correlation to how far the mouth can move when animating? Really unsure on the "finer" points of headshape editing.

From what I can tell the "sunglass lens" layer (0-8) seems to be like a glossy, slightly darker layer that acts to make the eyeballs look a little more realistic. As for those cones behind the eyes (0-10 and 0-11) I have no idea. They don't seem to do too much and I've noticed even if they appear out of place inside the head it doesn't really seem to matter to the ingame CF.

i dont know if obj export is supported anymore, its n2km files that require a plugin to work with Blender or 3DSMax. You could try converting them from those programs, but I dont know if it will work

Is it possible to use blender so I can view 3d images of shoes? coz it's really a pain trying to go in and out of practice mode and try to look if the soles are positioned correctly in instant replay mode.

iirc, there was a photoshop plugin for stuff like that......

but yes, you can use blender to UV map a WIP texture to the model


you could also just load up edit player, then switch shoes back and forth when you update the iff file, i think

Yup, I can easily view the sides of the shoes in "edit player", the problem is the soles underneath. can't really see if it is aligned properly with the shoe! I guess I'll just google the photoshop plugin for that. If I can't find it I think I'll just use blender!

Thanks for the quick response Jao!

NBA 2kXX Mod Tool is not Executing...

Actually I have many questions.

--> Regarding the installation of Blender 2.49b, this version tells me that I should have thePython 2.6.2 installed but I had already installed it. So I've found out that I need to set the path of python in order for the Blender to know that I have Python installed. The problem is that I don't know how to set them and I'm a newbie in this kind of thing.
--> My NBA 2kXX Mod Tool is not Executing. I have the Java Runtime Environment installed, and when I click the tool, nothing happens.
--> Do I need to install NBA 2k series 2012 and below to make the Mod Tool work? I had NBA 2k13 installed.
--> Does this Mod Tool work for NBA 2k13?
--> Just so you know, I followed the instructions carefully. I have Windows 7 64-bit.
--> My main goal in using this Mod Tool is that I want to make my own custom cyberface for my NBA2k13 My Career.

Thank you very much jaosming

i dont know the answer to your first question either. I am not a pro with these programs, so if you need help with them you mgiht want to try google or their own communities
no idea why the mod tool wornt work either, sorry
installation of games does not affect the mod tool
mod tool 2k1x works with 2K13
i also have windows 7 64-bit, so its not that

so, Im sorry I cant be of more help, but try searching the forums to see if there are any solutions someone else has posted
