Did you try cheat engine already?

I'm assumed you couldn't edit pants colours since you ignored my PM. So I investigated more into it and it looks like all the warmups share the same pants texture. The colour is locked somewhere and I have no idea how to change it. Probably somewhere in the games memory, which I probably can't change since the SYNC.bin fucked us over.

BTW, to change a iff file that a team uses you're going to need to get into the Team block.

You can do this by finding a team name address, and the right clicking it and press "Browse this Memory Region". Then you can find the f000.iff and change it to whatever you want.

I actually didn't answer you because I completely forgot. I read PMs, and then go "I'll answer this later" and then just forget.

If i had more motivation and free time to strictly focus on modding without my responsibilities I would keep looking for ways to mod this game.Modding and roster making has been more fun than playing the game for me.

Right now it takes too long for me to keep testing mod ideas and failing with no success.

Gregkwaste's Explorer tool, 7zip tool, and hex editors is mostly all I have been using.

To be honest knowing all I know now, I think it would be better for me to mod 2k16. Seems like that game has more possibilities for what I want to do.
Also 2K16 was less taxing graphically on people's pc. I had to upgrade graphics card for 2k17.

*Edit, I went back to 2k16 and I think the tools we have for 2K17 are much better.
So I definitely will not be going back to that game.

Do you even think modding for 2k17 and future games could be like 2k14 modding? Like are globals still a thing?

Other than roster editing, 2K17 modding is already pretty much like 2K14. There are added restrictions here and there, but that's it. And yes, there are still globals.

Roster editing and the fact that we have a much smaller modding community than in previous years is what's 2K17's problem. Other than that we can do a lot, if not more with the custom body models.

If we had a tool like red mc, there would be many rosters like college and retro seasons.

You're not very familiar with coding I'm guessing.

I'm putting my daughter to bed. I think I have a mod for you 2 guys and even the smaller shorts. I'll make sure it's works and try to release it within the next 40 minutes. Wish me luck.

>> 90's Shorts for current teams <<

phpBB [video]


Mod allows you to have 90s style shorts for all current teams and the jersey design feature in MyLeague and MyGM will also use these shorts.

This is great for retro rosters/ retro MyLeague saves.

No. I renamed the retro shorts file to shorts.iff and it changes all long shorts to 90s style.

I did not try to rename the classic shorts file to shorts.iff. Not sure it will work for those.

I posted this in a different thread but here are other things I have been working on.

Tried creating new archives myself so I could create and use new cf ids, floor ids, and arena ids. Also would allow me to use files without using modded folder like in 2K14.

I feel like I am close but I don't know what compression method is used for the archives themselves.

Also working on mod that allows me to play park with just the cpu and all cpu players would wear street clothes. This mod is already under way. I figured out how to do it.
I even figured out how to get the females to play with thier real body models and female casual clothes. Its a lot of work tho.

Lastly, still trying to figure out how to replace all players with mascots.

Adding new archives isn't going to be possible. I can tell you that right now. You'd have more luck getting new files to pull from the modded folder.

I too thought this was the case, so as my back up plan I have also been trying to use the empty archives to add new files.
I only had one full day to try to take a crack at the empty (or almost empty) archives. Still the issue that gets me is figuring out the compression of the archives.

Use the External File Plugin and place the .iff file into the modded folder:

Can you explain a bit more how to do it ?
I am in the same case as d43 but my experience with the cheat engine is very limited...
Thanks !

You will have to watch/ read tutorials for cheat engine in general to learn how to use it. I'm not really good at explaining cheat engine. I know just enough to get what I need done.
