NBA Live 2004 Current Rosters v1.04 - Ratings/Classic Teams

Postby benji on Mon Jan 12, 2004 5:51 am

Yes, it is the best, and it's even better. The Tim Duncan of roster patches continues it's journey to greatness. The Most Detailed and Deepest Roster Update has been updated again...

Updates in version 1.04:
- Current rosters updated as of January 9th, 2004
- Corrected positions based on starting lineups and for better sub patterns
- 95.7% of all player ratings have been updated
- A bunch of bums created using the crappy create player the game has
- Chicago and Washington's team set changed to Motion
- Frank Johnson replaced with Mike D'Antoni (face resembles him, but generic speech)
- Added '87 Lakers, '89 Pistons, and '96 Bulls to go with '92 Bulls and '95 Rockets (Currently there is a five team limit)
- Dennis Rodman player update (by Tony) included so he has his tatoos and wacky hair
- All numbers corrected
- Hand corrected: Adrian Griffin (HOU, Right to Left); Stacey King (92CI, Right to Left)
- Recommended Patches: Tony's Legends Updates, '95 Houston Rockets Patch

Continuing Features:
- Salaries and Salary Cap updated to the real life ones (you will need to start a new dynasty to get the new salaries)
- Sliders (at the end of this file)
- Team sets so teams play like they should
- Scott Skiles replaces Bill Cartwright (real face and speech), Johnny Davis replaces Doc Rivers (uses generic face and speech)

Also, during the install, there is a slight pause at the end, it has not crashed, just wait a minute or so and it will finish updating files.

My roster update fixes the Training Camp Dynasty thing where you could lose points for not training. Ratings are lower than most people are used to, they look fine to me (especially if you convert to the old scale) but don't worry, after one year in dynasty they auto-adjust to fit with the new rookies.

Well, if it does that, then it's not great work.

If you have problems, you might want to delete and redownload the patch because earlier versions may have had a bug that affects certain systems and causes problem with Rodman's face. It has been fixed in all downloads after this point.

I have decided to use yours.

Well I was thinking to download both (which I did) and then decide which one to use, I installed Ben's.

I did the right choice.
WOW :shock: what an excellent rosterupdate, almost every players rating is changed, the sliders settings is great, the classic teams are sensationall.

I played a Rocket '95 against Bulls '96 game and lost but I gotta say, that was the most entertaining game I ever played on Live '04.

Though Jordan scored like 12points and Luc Longley about 18 (N)
But it's different game to game I guess.

Anyway thumbs up for Ben and everyone on NBALIVE.org (Y)

NLSC = Best forum
Live.org = Best player and roster updates

EDIT: Forgott to mention Dennis Rodman, you have really done a great work on him, he evan has those short shorts.
He is coming up on my "pic of da week" sig next week BTW :wink:

Great Roster Update Ben!

Just a glitch I noticed using Orlando... Pat Garrity is listed as C as primary position and AG as secondary. Is it correct?

Thanks for the great work!

I had Garrity listed as a center because that's where Orlando was playing him. Now that he's out of the season I will switch him back to Forward in the next version so he plays that position if you do a dynasty. Sorry about that, he's easy to forget about. ;)

Thanks for the support everyone. I just try to make what I want for a roster, a realistic and accurate one that represents the NBA as it is currently. Then I just share it with everyone so they can use it too.

Re: Jordan only getting 12 points. He should've take the most shots on the team in every game and he usually does but if you focused your defense correctly he would shoot a low percentage and not be able to score in bunches.

In other words, I'm a kickass defender :)

I object to minnesota being worse then Milwaukee, they have 2nd best record in west. They have beat sac and San. Why so low of rating for there bench ???

I don't know why people complain just by looking at team ratings.

I restarted my dynasty with this super roster update and Minnesota is already leading its division after 5 games with a 4-1.

And I just lost to Chicago with Orlando by 2 points, even if there's a difference of almost 10 in the two team ratings.

Ben, you've done a superb job with this update. Now you can really see the difference of superstar player. When TMac is on the bench it's always a struggle to keep up with the other team.

Thanks!

Milwaukee's bench is better than Minnesota's. Milwaukee keeps a similar level of production throughout their entire team. Minnesota has phenominal starters but the bench is a sharp drop off. In real life Minnesota is better because their starters play 75+% of the time, but since the game calculates the overall out of all 12-15 players they suffer an overall rating drop. But when you do a season or dynasty this usually evens out because the starters are playing big minutes.

I tried to rename Ben's roster to 023 and nothing happened. Where do you rename it at? The folder itself or in the game? Thx.

Just curious, Ben, did you do all of the team offensive sets in the DBF editor for this file, or is that something you will do in a later release?

I set all of the team sets three versions ago and have been updating them since.

That's not my roster then. Prince is left-handed in mine.

Unfortunately the website has went down a few years ago. It's horrible to see that the precious, incredible mods inside are all gone.

Not a good bump here at all. Check the dates: this thread is over 11 years old. This release was a long time ago. Please pay attention to the dates on threads when searching through the archives, and keep in mind that files do get lost over the years...especially when we're going back more than a decade.
