1997/1998 Mod Version 6.0


Version 6:

*Checked over all rosters/lineups/rotations to ensure accuracy
*Added any missing players to rosters
*Added more accurate free agents

Minor Tweaks

Version 4:

Added correct shoes for players, more year-specific cyberfaces, courts, and jerseys. Edited some numbers that were found to be incorrect for better accuracy.

New in Version 3:

*Fixed big men bugs for PFs/Cs/SFs who are dribbling the ball up the court
*Fixed individual box scores bug with random players showing up
*Assigned the Nets franchise the New Jersey logos NOT the Brooklyn logos
*Double checked Jerome Williams CF is included in zip
Image*Added portraits for ALL the remaining players that don't have one - courtesy Nuhmete
*I further improved the Bobcats roster for association mode by giving all players giant contracts with no trade clauses making this team basically useless.

The following tweaks were made by NicktheQuick and will be included:
*Assigned look-a-like CF for all head coaches, where real coach CF was not available.
*Assigned a few assistant coaches- Bulls, Lakers, Spurs, Jazz.
*Assigned CF's to every player from your UBR roster.
*Fixed some portraits, where wrong portraits were assigned.
*Added 39 free agents from that season. Finished all FA's ratings.
*Checked all player numbers for accuracy
*Added several players from UBR to teams, most teams now have 13 players some 14. Expanded the rosters for more accuracy!

Here are the new portraits that were either assigned or added for V3.0.

Version 2:

I (HAWK23) have gone ahead and made this mod compatible with NBA2KUpdates AND the Ultimate Base Roster. I did this by renaming files to ensure normal files will not be overwritten. What this means is these files will not replace any current NBA team files so you can put all these files in your folders without worrying about it messing anything up for current NBA teams. There will also be NO conflicts with the Ultimate Base Roster, so feel free to install all files (and click yes to "overwrite") without fear of screwing anything up with the Uultimate Base Roster.

In addition to the new compatiability features I've also done the following:

*Removed the Bobcats from the roster
*Added portraits for nearly 8-10 players per team using the same portrait files the Ultimate Base Roster uses
*Added the real 1997-1998 East and West All-Star Teams
*Added the real 1997-1998 East and West Rookie Teams
*Fixed an issue with the rookie team courts not showing up
*Fixed a few player ages that were incorrect
*Fixed a few jersey lengths that were incorrect


After you click the "DOWNLOAD" button located below you will be brought to a webpage with 5 separate download parts. If this is the first time seeing the "5 Part" downloads on this page then you're going to want to download and install Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 first (in that exact order). If you have already previously downloaded Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 once already for the Ultimate Base Roster or one of the other Season Mods you won't have to download them again. If you're not sure if you have downloaded them previously then play it safe and download/install Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 before moving to Part 4 and Part 5. Remember, after you download and install 1, 2, and 3 ONE time you never have to download them again.

You will, however, need to download Part 4 and Part 5 every time there is a new update NO MATTER what.

After downloading Part 4 make sure to read the "README.PDF" file located in the zip file.

You will need to place all of the contents from Part 3 into your Main NBA2K Folder.
C:\Program Files (x86)\2K Sports\NBA 2K12 (NOT THE SAVES FOLDER)

After downloading Part 5 make sure to read the "README.PDF" file located in the zip file.

You will need to place all of the contents from Part 5 into your SAVES Folder.
C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Roaming\2K Sports\NBA 2K12\Saves

Then open the game and load the “1998 Roster” roster.

For Steam users use:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\NBA 2K12

(Note – if you load the roster and not all the teams are showing then first load “Unlock All Settings” from the load menu. I included this file for anyone who hadn’t downloaded it yet (courtesy Jao).
