Swap their appearance file with one from a male is the easiest way (there are multiple ways).
Now that we can have hair seperate from body, you could also just edit a male CF and then add the female face.iff and hair files

Whoops, typo. I meant kyrie 3.

I tried replacing the "shoe_model_fe" and the model in clothing resources that has 5 lod's. Neither showed the kobe 8 model in game, maybe i have to adjust something with notepad?

That just makes the player dissappear or crashes the game when you load the player in edit player.

I've tried it.

I want to thank you for this an all you have been doing with digging into the game files and what you are doing with the cheat engine. It is very time consuming and sometimes tiring, I know from past experience of my own. The community and I thank you. :applaud:

There is a cheat table out with the option to edit sock color. Cheat engine is the way to go on this. This is addressed in the below thread.

I don't feel like doing much typing so here is a video with some progress being made in one of the other threads.
You will not find the video on my channel because it is unlisted.

In the video I test out overwriting a current team with a retro team (my goal is to create a retro season)

Is it possible to re-write player attributes and tendencies from roster to MyLeague? I started with pandahero's roster but found one with more accurate tendencies and attributes so would like to use that.

If you change those first two 633 633 to 14's then the dornas will change to the current knicks dornas
I'm not sure which does which but one of those or maybe both can change your dornas

About dornas, is it possible to use a non related number ? i dont want to overwrite currents arenas.

Yes this is possible. Copy the data u want to a created player. Then load your myleague and copy data from created players to players in your myleague

I gotta do this for 500 players in the nba? 450 players (15*30) and top 50 FAs.

That is just too time consuming. Loading roster, copying data, going in myleague, pasting data takes about 3-4 minutes per player. That is 25 hrs of just copy/pasting attributes and tendencies.

Is it possible to do in bulk? For example is it possible to load whole roster in limono or CE, freeze/copy attributes and tendencies and paste it in MyLeague? Or maybe whole team 15 players? Even that would require 1-2 hrs but I am willing to do that.

Im going to assume you did not watch my video above about cloning player info. Copying players does not take 3-4 minutes each. Also why would you copy every player in the league including players that do not even play? Just copy what you need.

I'm sure there is a quicker way but you will need to find it yourself for now or wait for one of the few people willing to find a quicker way.

Or you could just start a new myleague with the other roster. That would instantly solve your problem.

Sorry but those are the only solutions I can offer at this time. I have already spent about 200 hrs finding modding solutions, creating tutorials, providing links and help threads, as well as helping create cheat tables ( and later simplifying those tables for easy use). I know there is a quicker way but to find it will take many hours of research and then I will have to make a tutorial to explain the process.

Not sure how you even get this much accomplished, you have a family (including children).

Thanks for all the work you do.

I would have to look myself. I can't do that right now I have been adding to the Edit player table for about 2 hours now. I gotta keep going.
Sorry, but you will have to test yourself or try and ask R4zor.

Is there a way to overwrite our Relocation creation in MyGm mode??? I mean even if I create a new arena, jerseys etc, to overwrite them with a mod.

For example, I want to take control of the Bucks, but I do not wish to actually relocate them, just tick all the boxes of relocation to be able to upgrade facilities.
So I am forced to choose a city (I choose the same - Milwaukee Center), I am forced to alter the court (this year it lets you keep the one you have but I don't know if I lose the alternative they have), and finally I am forced to design new jerseys! Although I do not want that. I want to keep their originals.

So if I can submit new uniforms, but then with a mod overwrite them with the original ones, it would be great as I will be able to upgrade my facilities, thus better attendance etc without having to play with custom uniforms.

Possible, Yes. No one has created a table for coaches. Maybe you can find the memory region and we can create a table.

Here is an easy way to avoid the nicknames. Put all your created players in a draft class and put them in the teams in a myleague using limnono. Then you can copy your roster from myleague using limnono too...

Yes, those textures can only be loaded into Photoshop using some intel plugin. Right now there is no support for Gimp.

Just FYI, found as a work around for some of my mods, the .dds files from last year do work inside this years .iff's and those are editable in GIMP

Have you ever experienced that in the "edit player" screen the values for attributes and tendencies are missing?

I only see arrows left & right but cannot see the values for the attributes and tendencies.

I wanted to edit players via CE but the game tends to crash every now and then so I went back to doing it ingame.

Thanx for your answer.
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 always save as DTX5 with mipmaps and I've been good so far

Bit the bullet and purchased 2K18. What are the things that I need to do, prior to me installing mods? Like do I need to create a modded folder, and the external file plugins? Also I read something about backing up or saving the exe prior to patches being installed. Is this correct? Thx for the replies.

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.
