Hey guys, just checking in. First off, I just want to apologize for leaving this project in an incomplete state. I ended up giving up hope for a variety of reasons, such as the draft, roster cuts, and general errors I was getting while trying to finish off the final touches. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the project last season, from the roster selections to statistics. I'm truly appreciative of the contributions you all have made, and I'm deeply sorry I was unable to finish and release the project.
With all of that said, I think I would like to give it another shot for the upcoming season, but I'm willing to admit that it's probably a bigger task than I'm able to complete on my own. I have all of my data saved from last years project, and I think that a lot of things like portraits / name tags (which is probably the hardest part) can carry over to this year. If any of you guys are interested in collaborating on NBA Jam 2k15, please let me know. Most of the work is basic hex editing, with a bit of photoshop and some other rom editing programs for the graphics. If you're able to do work on the 2k series for the PC, this stuff should come as child's play. Hell, the fact that I figured it out goes to show just how easy it is.
It's mostly just time consuming, really. If we combine the information I have already compiled through last years research (such as hex offsets and general how-to stuff) with the bright minds on the NLSC forums, I think we can really do something great here.
One more thing, I'm currently taking a programming class this semester. My knowledge base is pretty weak right now (been learning visual basic 2010), but I would love to make a player editing program to make things easier for any future iterations. If that's something you'd be interested in helping with, I'd love to try to get that started as well.
I'm not willing to give up hope on this project just yet, and I'd love to get a group of guys together to turn this thing into a reality.
In unrelated news, I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS SEASON TO START!!! Cleveland is going to be so exciting to watch for the first time in what feels like forever. Some of those plays in preseason were just incredible. Kyrie between the legs pass to Lebron for the jam... Kyrie between the legs to Love for the layup... It's going to be absolutely amazing. Don't think they'll win the title this season but the fact that they're even in the conversation is a breath of fresh air. Hope you guys are all doing well. Cheers!
