NBA Live 15 Hardwood Classic Edition

an NBA Live '96 Sega Genesis Rom Modification




FEATURES

Player Modifications:
- All players renamed/replaced with current NBA players for 2014-2015 season based on ratings/skillsets (i.e. Jordan became LeBron)
- Player numbers and appearances updated
NOTE: Players have NOT been re-rated. I was aiming more to keep the classic game play than to make the ratings the same as NBA 2k15. If a player is dominating games that shouldn't be, post below and I'll update things in the next version.

Roster Modifications:
- All teams with 12 current players
- Depth charts based on information from nba.com and realgm.com
- Rosters updated through 3/1/2015 in v1.1
- All-Star teams updated with 2014-2015 rosters in v1.1

Team Modifications:
- All team names, cities and stadium names updated
- New Orleans Pelicans replace Custom Blockers
- Rookies, Sophomores and Prospects teams replace Custom Jammers, Slammers and Stealers

Palette/Color Modifications:
- All team jersey colors updated
- All court colors updated
NOTE: Updating actual on-court logos requires editing the rom's graphics and is not part of this modification.

Known Issues and Future Releases:
- Stat tracking during seasons is currently messed up. I'm assuming this has to do with some of the unknown "?" stats and ratings in the editor I used. I will try to figure this out for the next release
- I've been able to find where the team logos (in the menu screens) and the player head graphics are stored. I'm figuring out how to edit them. So far no luck finding the center court logos.




INSTRUCTIONS
Download Link: http://forums.nba-live.com/downloads.php?view=detail&df_id=7366
Recommended Emulator: Fusion 3.64 (http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/genesis/fusion.html)
The ZIP file contains a BIN file (the game file) an SRM file (SRAM/save file) and a readme.
The SRAM contains information such as depth chart moves and player trades, Grizzlies/Raptors rosters, custom team rosters, and season/playoff save infromation. If the SRAM does not load correctly you will be prompted to go through the expansion draft prior to playing or editing rosters and Pelicans players will be scattered across several teams. Please see the readme.txt file for instructions on how to set the SRAM up correctly.
NOTE: If you replace/upgrade your SRAM with future updates you will lose any season/playoff progress. I will try to make updates that will keep this from happening but always back up your SRAM file before replacing it.

With this being the 20th Anniversary of NBA Live, nice to see some old school content. We're planning on doing a few things ourselves, but good to see the community getting in on the act. :)

Feel free to upload it to our Downloads section for safekeeping, too.

Pretty sweet job rjb2585. Got Fusion setup pretty quick and mapped RT to A, A to B, and B to C for the 360 controller. 100% terrible at this though, never really played the old games but everything seemed pretty correct to me.

Thanks guys. Thanks for posting those JaoSming. I'll get some more posted as I add rookies and as more free agents move around.

You can also change your controller setting to a 6-button controller and run different plays/sets. I always played on arcade mode growing up so I never realized that the gameplay was actually pretty solid.

Andrew, looking forward to what you guys have cooking. Once I have a more finished/updated product I'll post it to the download section.

Team names are edited. Background colors might be able to be edited them if I can find where they're located in hex. Fonts and sprites will require graphics editing which I'm not sure I'll be able to pull off.

I'm living in the glory days man. It's been all Live '96, NHL '94, Tecmo Super Bowl and Ken Griffey Jr Baseball for me recently

Getting close to the full update for the 2014-2015 season. Hopefully I'll have it done sometime in the middle of the pre-season.

Fantastic work on this mod! :bowdown: :bowdown2: It looks like the rom in the zip file doesn't have the latest update. It's still consists of last season's rosters. Can't wait to play the updated version with the rookies and such! :mrgreen: Thank you, thank you Dr B!

Oh damn, I must uploaded v0.1 instead of v1.0. Sorry to the people who have already downloaded it. I made the change and tested it out. It should be working now. Let me know if you have any issues. Thanks!

Just added an update to the downloads section. Rosters are updated through 3/1 with depth charts according to RealGM.com (injured players are lower on the depth charts). I also added a prospects team with the 12 top prospects according to DraftExpress.com. There are probably some number changes that I missed but let me know if anything major needs to be changed/updated.

Also, I've was able to find some of the graphics in the game using a tile editor. I should theoretically be able to change the team logos for the menu screens and change some of the faces (new hair styles, add headbands etc) but it may take me a little while to figure out exactly how to do that efficiently. Still no luck finding the center-court logos. If anybody is interested in helping with future updates or even modding this game for themselves, let me know. I'll start a tutorial thread.

No, I've been working on some other projects. It was fun but there were several things I wanted to do that we're too difficult with the editing tools at my disposal, so I lost steam. Thanks for reminding me though, I was supposed to upload some tools/documents explaining how I edited this game in case anybody wants to pick up where I left off. They're going up into the downloads section now.

Still a great mod. (Y)
Decided to simulate a game between the Cavs and Warriors. In the middle of the third quarter, Jr Smith gets trapped in the corner by 3 defenders. What does he do? Sinks a fadeaway 3 with 15 seconds still on the clock.

Might be the most Jr Smith move I've ever seen.

Perhaps Smith's style of play can best be described as mid-90s basketball video game, then. ;)

haha art imitates life sometimes. when i first made the mod at the beginning of last year i thought i screwed the ratings up because golden state was the #1 ranked team... little did I know what was about to happen. glad people still like it. i wish i could do more with it. if there every comes a day that we can edit rom graphics a little more easily i'm going to be all over it.

Hey there. I've looked into this because I'm honestly not familiar with emulators on phones. I've only played it on PC and Mac. In my experience, whether or not the game works is pretty much dependent on the emulator. Even if it's the "same" emulator on a different operating system there are still differences. I would just try any different emulators that you can to see if you can find one that works.

I'm sorry but I don't quite understand your request for a "regular zip or bin". When it comes to modding this rom the bin version is the only one that can be modded and played so the bin version that is in the downloads section is the only one I have. It is packaged in a zip file along with the srm "save file" and maybe you need to unzip it first on your computer and then email both files separately to yourself?

One other possible solution is to try different emulators if they are available for your phone. The fact that it worked on other phones means that something is slightly different (either the emulator software ported for that phone or the phone software/hardware itself or both) from your last phone to your current phone that makes the rom not work with that emulator on that phone. I would look for different emulators and try them all out.
