As previously mentioned, we’re not just posting feature articles and retrospectives as part of our 20th Anniversary of NBA Live celebrations. We’re also releasing a little something for every PC game in the series, for anyone who wants to dust off old favourites.
Continuing on from the Definitive NBA Live 95, we have the Definitive NBA Live 96! This is a final 1995/1996 roster patch for NBA Live 96 that adds missing players, accounts for all the trades and signings that took place during that memorable season, contains a few fixes, and adjusts some ratings. Once again, this is something that I’ve gone back and crafted having had years of experience making roster updates, to create what I feel is a “director’s cut” patch for NBA Live 96.
There aren’t any issues with compatibility when it comes to NBA Live 96 rosters, so this update can be used in any game mode you choose. Please note that it also updates the portrait files, or at least, blanks out the portraits for players I’ve overwritten…just in case you’re wondering why it’s a slightly larger download than usual, for a roster update for such an old game.
