Well, if it started stuttering right after you installed the courts, then that is probably it.

I have this, though it's only maybe 3 or 4 times per full game. I also have those courts installed, with a very high fps.

Is your HDD suddenly working during gameplay ?

- Try to turn off all programs in the backround

This is not an uncommon issue with pc games. One of the culprits may be USB ports. I would try this-
Start a game but have the cpu play by itself. While the game is playing, unplug any peripheral connected to your computers USB ports. I know you news them to be able to play the game, but just try it to see if the game still stutters when they are not plugged in. If it still stutters, the it is not the USB ports.

Another possibility is an overly fragmented hard drive, since the game is constantly writing data for in-game replays while you are playing. So, defrag your hard drive and see if that is the problem.

Another issue it could be is power having technologies like cpuidle, or speed step, which throttle your processor to a lower frequency to save power.

Please post your system specifications so we can make sure you meet the minimum requirements to run the game.

Haha. I totally forgot that editing the config file causes stuttering gameplay. This is the default for that part-
MAIN_LOGICAL_THREAD = 1
GPU_LOGICAL_THREAD = 0

You can try enabling the second one by changing it to a 0 or a 2 and see what happens. It is used for the cloth effects of the moving jerseys when player detail is set to high.

by changing it to a 0 or a 2


A -1 means the thread is disabled. I think it just enables a second programming thread for calculating the cloth physics. It helped people in 2k9 who were getting low frame rates during games when they had player detail set to high.

Fire up the game, alt-tab out and go to your task manager...find 2k11 and set the affinity to 3 cores .... that worked for me ...

NM didnt noticed you managed to solve the problem

There are four of them. Logical thread 0,1,2,and 3. The second one would be number 1.

i did solve the problem at first but now the stuttering seems to come back like after 4 min into the game. everything play smooth for the 1st four minute and the stuttering begins...weird. :( Setting the affinity to 3? when i click on affinty, do i uncheck other cores so that only 3 remains?

I actually created a small pausing/freezing problem after my PS/2 keyboard broke and I replaced it with a USB keyboard. The pausing was every second or two and was only noticeable in the menus and replays. I found that there were two USB drivers loaded at the same time for the keyboard. Once I removed one of the drivers, the freeze went away.
