i've noticed that some players don't have their own chest texture, maybe they are those who don't tattoos or any other body features. is it possible to add one chest texture for a player?

i dig the subject. New textures are in DX10 format.
I've also found a plugin for paint .net, so i can open the files but my textures dont appear ingame :crazyeyes:
So i'm not sure about the correct values of the save format.


i use this plugin for paint.net link
extract logo.dds.... rename to logo.dds2... open in paint.net.... save as logo.dds... import into game.
just open it in the new dds format, then save it as the old dds, then edit the old dds format and put the old dds format back into iff/game
then i do my editing with gimp and pint.net
using the old dds works for every new bc7 dds. it loads just fine.


thanx, i'll try :wink:

Is anyone currently working on a cheat table like last year's? It would be really awesome, especially if we could find a vc method as well like last year which was the "change your in game stats to get vc" thing. I'm talking about a cheat table like Veryan's, you should be able to find it if you don't know what I'm talking about. If someone can work on something like this or is currently working on it but just needs time, please let me know (if there is a cheat table like this coming up soon or later) thank you very much!

If that's just the product of resizing his head, follow these instructions to avoid those glitches:

There are steps more adequate than some of the ones described above when reducing the size of heads.

The most important one is to keep the pivot point of the whole selection in the middle of the eyeShape vertex group so you' re scaling the neck/head towards the eyes. The reason for that is that moving the eyeballs even the slightest will cause animation glitches. With the pivot point set to the middle of the whole head/neck, the eyes may not completely clip through the player's face when doing just a small scaling process (like the .95 mentioned), but it will still mess up a lot of the facial expressions. Also, at least most big man who have big heads in the game require a larger scaling ratio(some of the tallest ones probably closer to .8), and, in those cases, the eyes would often pop out of the sockets.

To set the pivot point to the middle of the eyes, just select them before anything else, press SHIFT + S and select "cursor to selected". Afterwards, just change the pivot point, in the second box after the mode selection box, to "3D Cursor". To ensure that the eyes will move even less out of their original position when scaling, I'd also recommend enabling proportional editing before scaling the selection. To do that, when you press S to use the scale function, immediately press enter to get to the scaling options before resizing anything. Scroll down through the "Resize" bar in the bottom left corner of the screen and change Proportional Editing to "Enabled". Now, hold left click to the left of the value in the X axis until the Z axis or vice versa and then release it so you can select and scale all of them at the same time. This method of scaling also doesn't require any smoothing or fixing at all. The neck might look a bit weird when performing certain animations, but it's not very noticeable and that's basically the tradeoff of keeping the eye animations and face expressions as intact as possible.


However, if you can't undo whatever generated those glitches, you'll probably have to start your work on the model all over.

I guess your best bet to avoid losing your work is to load the original model alongside the modified one in blender, lock the pivot point to the middle of the eyes of the original model, as mentioned in the quote in my post above, and then try to revert the scaling you did on the modified model. You'd still have to make manual adjustments and I doubt that it would be possible to completely prevent the eyes from popping out. But maybe the issue would be minimal if you can manage to get the eyes as close as possible to their original size and position.

Also, I don't think it's possible to disable eye animations exclusively(or at all), as they're tied to the remaining facial animations through the .mathnodes file. With that in mind, maybe you could import the .mathnodes file from a model that has similar eye size/position. It won't crash or turn the player invisible if you change the file name appropriately in the hihead.SCENE file, but I have no idea how glitch-free that move can be.

send me the file I can try to fix the eyes for you. I think I know what the issue is but only way to know for sure is to see the file.

It looks like you may have saved the model while in edit mode, which does not save your changes outside of blender.

Guys I don't know if I should post it here, but I'm having a problem with Cheat Engine and 2k18, and I don't know why, because it worked perfectly with 2k17, but this year I've tried all the CE tables that have been realeased and it never works and it's very frustrating.

I'm kinda new so I don't know how to attach a screenshot of the problem, but basicly with the ARENAS table instead of "Type: String[10]" and "Value: f000" I have "Type: Binary:0->idi" and "Value: ??".

Can someone please tell me what do I have to do to fix it? :(

Every time a patch is released you have to update the cheat engine table. If you backed up all the.exe files, use the one from 10/13 and the cheat table will work

But, from what you've said I get that ,since I bought my steam copy last week, I will need to find other method to copy players or edit team names, right?
Or is there anyway to download older .exe versions via Steam?

I've been extracting some logo files this evening (chiefly stuff like this year's 2K Pro-Am logo), and I was having some trouble opening the DDS files. After a bit of searching around, I found this plugin for paint.net:
https://github.com/dtzxporter/FileTypeDDS

With that installed, NBA 2K18's DDS files are opening just fine. Just thought I'd post it here in case anyone else is having issues opening them. No renaming required; just install the latest version of paint.net, make sure it isn't running while you install the DDS plugin, and then you'll be able to open the files as before.

With that installed, NBA 2K18's DDS files are opening just fine. Just thought I'd post it here in case anyone else is having issues opening them. No renaming required; just install the latest version of paint.net, make sure it isn't running while you install the DDS plugin, and then you'll be able to open the files as before.


Thanks a lot Andrew. That was so much needed !!!

So there is no problem to open now dds. The issue is that I can't save the new image properly... It doesn't show in the game or it crashs... What am I doing wrong ?

I'm afraid I can't help you with that. I've just been extracting the textures. Someone else might be able to point you in the right direction.

Here is my little contribution to the dds file situation. This plugin is nice

After saving your file, you need to rename it from .dds2 to .dds. And that's it ;-)

But, from what you've said I get that ,since I bought my steam copy last week, I will need to find other method to copy players or edit team names, right?
Or is there anyway to download older .exe versions via Steam?
Sorry for basicly shitposting but I don't know any other site or people to ask about this stuff.


I don't know how you can get it but what are you trying to do?


I'd like to make a roster based on your Unlocked Teams roster, in wich I'd replace the historical teams and hidden teams with ACB, Euroleague,Eurocup teams, also some teams from CBA, PBA to make something like a World Roster i guess, and the all-time would be replaced by national teams

I tried that one as it was mentioned earlier in the topic, but I wasn't able to open the DDS files with it. Once again though, I was only opening and saving them as PNG files to use elsewhere.

Over the past few weeks, NBA Explorer has suddenly stopped working for me. When I loan archives it's just blank. Has anyone else had this issue or know what might be the problem?

It was working fine, then suddenly not. The archive headings show, but there is no data loaded. I reinstalled the explorer and verified integrity of game files through Steam; still not working.
