Any you prefer? I'm looking for a pretty good dynasty mode. I have played 98 before and liked it. Just wondering if 2005 or 2006 would have a good dynasty mode

For PC, I'd go with NBA Live 2005 or NBA Live 06.

2005 and 06 are pretty similar. Good dynasty mode, but I think 2005 had that annoying pda (this was before smartphones were a thing)

I had NBA live 06 installed deep in my pc i guess. i think i installed it once and never played it. ive been playing it though. its nice. and the PDA is on nba live 06's dynasty (idk about 05 though)

Any reason why 06 is overlooked when it comes to mods? It seems like everyone updates 08 even though I think that's inferior to 06.

NBA Live 2005 also has the PDA in Dynasty Mode. I prefer NBA Live 06's approach to staff, however.

NBA Live 06 had a lot of great updates back in the day. I guess more people have stuck with doing things with NBA Live 08 because it's the (slightly) newer game, but I've always preferred 06 to 08 (and 07 for that matter). 2005 and 06 on PC were great releases in their time.

There IS a way to mute the PDA correct? At least I think you might have been the one to say that in an old topic? I forget how, but I know it doesn't really disable it because it's a vital part of the dynasty mode, and I think you get fired if your performance is poor? (Off my memory)

I've always liked 98 for some reason. Way before I was anywhere near basketball video games so when I played it it's not really a nostalgic kind of thing, I just liked how it played and I look back on the NBA in the 90's as a good time even though I didn't experience it happen

Also, NBA live's defense seems to be like glue, I can't ever seem to make it to the basket

You'll miss out on trade offers and so forth if you ignore the PDA, so it's just something you have to put up with it. It's not a completely bad idea, but I don't like it in terms of working out trades, since you have to wait a day or two to find out if a team is interested. There's no "real time" negotiation with it.

Yep that's what I figured out, you have to wait for trades. The PDA is just unneeded really. It was a good take on trying to make the mode more complex (albeit for a good reason) it didn't pan out well.

Exactly. Also, some of the interactions with the team owner were more unnecessary nags than anything else. It was also a bit ridiculous that you could get all the way to the Finals, lose in seven games, and the owner would send a message scolding you about how disappointed he was in the team's performance. I suppose it's not completely unrealistic that an owner would act like that, and they'd obviously be disappointed in the loss, but you'd think there'd be a slightly more optimistic/grateful reaction ("I'm disappointed, but it was still a great season. Let's get back there and win it all next year") if you'd come that close to a championship.

You made it to the finals! Not accomplishing at all.. Better luck next time

I installed LIVE 2001 to see how it is and it's cool and all but the graphics are weeeird, like its all good until you see 3d portraits and the left sides team has flickering, and then u get into the game and all the textures are off and stuff. I've heard you should install it on a VM but I don't get why that's the only option if 2000 and 99 and 98 work fine without a vm

It's not the only option. There's a slightly different method for getting it to run properly on modern systems, but it is possible. As for why, it's just the way it is, with its hardware requirements and the way it was programmed.

It runs fine and everything it's just the ingame graphics. Same for the demo too. But I haven't done anything I haven't done for 2000 and so on, but then again those didn't have the same problem this does

As I said, you do need to do a few things differently to get the graphics to show up properly. matt1994 found a way to get it working properly, graphics and all: viewtopic.php?p=1843916#p1843916

Anyways, at first I just did what he said and it didn't work - it crashed the game on startup - however I got it to work by tinkering with the settings. It's not too bad of a game, but I can see why 2000 would be favored (Y) the soundtrack is good tho


Laptop works but when I did it for my desktop it showed 4 controllers and none of them worked, hmmm

The exact same thing happened with me. I can get a gamepad to work on my laptop, but not my desktop.

Me either. matt1994 made some good suggestions, but I didn't have any luck with them, unfortunately.
