There's nothing wrong with wanting to mod an old game, or asking for help. However, there is a wrong way to go about it, and making the same post in multiple threads asking for help, and bumping a bunch of old topics, is the wrong to go about it.
Notice that this thread is almost two years old, and the person who started it has not logged in for over a year. They aren't active, and as such, they are unlikely to answer your question. Therefore, there's no good reason to bump this thread, or ask for help in it. You're not going to get the answers you're after by doing so, and bumping old threads without good cause is not good Forum etiquette.
Generally speaking, with a game this old, you've got to be very, very patient when asking for help, because most of the people who were making patches for it aren't doing so anymore, and in many cases, aren't around to help out or answer questions anymore either. Posting the same question all over the Forum is not going to make people reply quicker, and it's just going to make it more difficult for people to reply, because you've started the conversation in a lot of places. It's also somewhat annoying because it comes across as impatient and pushy, which makes people less likely to want to help.
That's why one post is sufficient: it's putting the request out there, and if there is anyone still around who has the time and knowledge to help out, they can respond to that one post, instead of trying to have the conversation in multiple threads. That just gets confusing for everyone, because the conversation is taking place across several different threads.
The same thing is happening in the NBA Live 08 section. There's less and less activity, because more people are playing one of the NBA 2K games these days. NBA Live 2003 is even older though, so there are even fewer people around who are having anything to do with it. I'm personally able to answer more questions about NBA Live 08 because I've done a bit more work with the art files for that game, and my work on that game is much more recent.
It's great that you want to contribute to the community, but again, you've got to follow the Forum rules, and be patient when you're dealing with one of the older games, because not a lot of people are frequenting this section anymore, and a lot of the people who did back in the day are no longer actively posting or browsing the Forum. Hopefully some old resources can be tracked down or some people can answer your question, but it might take a while. In the meantime, the one post you've made asking for help is sufficient. Please do not bump any more old release threads of people who are no longer around. They're not going to see it, so they're not going to be able to help you.
For now, all I can do is point at the tutorials that are still there in the Forum, and also in the Wiki. I can take a look and see if I have ize's video tutorial somewhere, but I don't think that I ever downloaded it, so it's probably lost at this juncture. Note that ize hasn't logged in since 2013, so he's probably not going to be able to help either. That's what I was getting at before; a lot of the people who can answer the questions aren't around anymore to ask.
