Reminder (PC Users): Backup your NBA2K18.exe (Video)

Postby Dee4Three on Sat Aug 19, 2017 7:41 am

Just a friendly reminder.

Backing up my NBA2K17.exe's before and after patches saved NBA 2K17 for me. The game played much better when first released, and after the first patch. Just create a backup folder and put the .exe's in it.

You will be happy you did.

A good idea. Sadly for us PS4 users we don't have a choice.

I know... I wish a work-around existed for you guys.

Pretty sure you would have to back up the entire game or what you're saying will break things.

Nope, I've been doing it all year. Just when you go online on steam it updates.

Nothing breaks, the gameplay goes back to pre patch gameplay. It's like night and day.

All of my videos are pre patch gameplay from the .exe after only the first update. That's why the gameplay looks better.

Backing up the exe file is enough to avoid stuff like animations, collision detection and ball physics getting worse after patches.

The exe file is the one responsible for telling if anim x or y is triggered depending on the situation (which is different than an aiact file, for example, present on NBA Live 2004-08). So if we back up our executable, we good. I'm backing up next year's exe file from day one.

Exactly.

You know how people felt stuck in the mud after the patches? When you use an older .exe (I use the one from December) the players are not stuck in the mud at all.

It's a no brainer to back them up.

I realized that wasn't necessary. But I'm sure it didn't hurt. Just takes awhile when it's 50+ GB.

This will sound strange... but the rest of the gameplay is so bad after these patches, that I can deal with it. I have a far better experience with the earlier .exes.

I like first .exe more too...and I've a great news: I think they solved Double Teams issue throught a ACE update :applaud:

You will get double teams only on late game situation or if you have hot streak...no more double teams just after 7 points...

So keeping old .exe with updated roster and game update works great for me...

The first, and the one after the first patch, are the best for me. Players are less weighted, players have a quick first step. Just the action on the court feels more fluid.

im with tbm on this one. when there's a patch, it's not just the exe that updates, but the game files as well (y'all know this). it iust doesn't make sense that using an older exe changes things back to old.

I know for a fact it makes a huge difference, the gameplay is night and day. It's not even close. It's the reason videos that I upload now that I have the first step burst that they took out. The game is unejoyable with the new exe. It's enjoyable with the old ones.

I guess i'll have to create a back-up then.. u get why I'm skeptical tho, right? you would think that you'd have to have a separate install to play a diff version of the game.

Of course, but as CarolusXCI said above, the .exe is responsible for the x and ys, the animations. I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt, I was going to go back to NBA 2k14 after the patches, until I found my backups. It changed the game for me.

People comment on my videos asking why the gameplay looks so good, or why it looks free. It's because it's the pre patch gameplay.I adjusted the sliders as well, but the biggest reason is the pre patch .exe.

I'm with you and I'm using one of the first .exe maybe 1.03 if I'm not wrong:

PRO
Game is more Physical
More Animation
You can still edit accessory / socks color
RIm Physics is better and I see more long rebounds
Shooting is really well balanced; you won't miss open J's as with 1.12 patch

CONS
Passing is a little slow compared to 1.12 patch
AI is slower to start the action compared to 1.12 patch
There is more bumping between players but this is really subjectuive...I like it in 1.03 but I also like the more freedom of 1.12

Overall 1.03 Patch plays out beautifully (Y)...also with latest roster update Double Teams / Rotation works great so this will bring a great 2k17 experience......until 2k18 comes out :cool:

No, because the game will auto update when you go online (all the patches will be installed).

What I do is: if I want to upload a roster, or download one, I'll go in and do that, and save the roster. I'll just exit the game after, go offline on steam, and put the old .exe back in. And boom, I'm all set.

It occurred to me today that I had backed up the day 1 version of the game so I checked my flash drive and found the .exe file for the game so I overwrote the version I have been using and I have to say Dee4Three is correct about how much better the game plays with the original file.

I thought on day 1 the game played well and the patches that followed eroded the quality. Until today I didn't realize how much worse the game had gotten.

It is definitely much more enjoyable to play now.

If you guys just use JSGME (Jonesoft generic mod enabler) you can just put the old .exe in a folder and enable and disable it as you please.
I use this mod enabler for everything related to 2K. It's very easy once you understand it. Been using this method since 2K13.

I did play a 2007 Cavs vs 2007 Knicks last night with 1.03 exe and latest ACE / Roster updated...the game was beautiful and I really like how Physical momentum is done and present in 1.03....Lebron was a monster to stop for the Knicks (Y)

I also hex edited teams colors since with that .exe you can still have them changed without any override.....Overall I love this setup but I will look forward for 2k18.....in the waiting I'm having some huge games with 2k17

We can't, it's against the rules. Just make sure you back them up for 2K18.

No. Im talking strictly about the gameplay, all you need to do is backup the .exe.

Thanks Dee4Three

I signup-ed this board on 2006 or 2007 , don't quite sure, after accidentially find out about NLSC and that 'PG' dominant AI that haunted Live07.
It's important to backup exe of 2K. I used to play 2k12 and after one of updated patches, gameplay just completely change.

So, I will go back to do backup tonight.

No problem, and good call. You will always have the gameplay with no patches if you want now (For offline use).
