How to Edit Jersey Numbers & Letters

Postby Lin0v3rG4m3 on Sun Mar 20, 2011 7:49 am

I can't post in Tutorials section yet, I guess I need an approvement from the admins, so for now I post it here :)

Hi everybody

Since some people were asking how to edit the numbers and letters froms jerseys, I’m making this tutorial to answer the question once for all :D Don't worry, it's really easy.

All of you who want to change the color or the texture from your jerseys, you must have noticed that in Nba2KXModTool the numbers and the letters appear like that :
Image
Image

And I’m not showing you the pic’s of letters and numbers in Nba 2k9 Iff editor ‘cause it simply doesn’t show anything.

So how can we edit these textures ? Well, Jor1980 made a great tool a long time ago now (it was for Nba 2k10 I believe) : the Jersey Editor v1.0 (I think there is a v1.1 now)
With his tool we’ll be able to export the letters and numbers textures and then re-import them. I found this way by my own about one or two months ago. (I didn’t think that this tool would also work for 2k11)

Here’s the link for the download of Jersey Editor : http://www.gamefront.com/files/15149383/JerseyEditor.rar/
Of course, you’ll need Photoshop, I hope you’ve got it ‘cause I can’t give a link for this download ;) Sorry ‘cause mine is in French, and I couldn’t turn it into English UI :s (I have Photoshop CS4 by the way)

Once you’ve downloaded Jersey Editor, open the jersey you want to edit with it so click on “SelectJerseyFile” and select your jersey. Then, you’ll have to click on “Textures” and 6 textures will appear. The numbers are the “Texture 1” and the letters are the “Texture 5”
So, logically you’re at this point :
Image
Image

In order to export these textures you’ll just have to left click on the picture and it will export it with *.png format.
Now open this png file with Photoshop which will help you to modify the texture properly :)
Do whatever you want to your numbers/letters in Photoshop. (In my case, I just changed a lil’ the color and added a filter for instance) I’m not gonna tell you how to change colors or anything else in Photoshop, there are a lot of tutorials about it ;)
Image :arrow: Image

Now you need to save the texture still in png format but before you have to select a different mode for the colors. Your picture is in RGB colors and you must change it into indexed colors (256 colors and transparency enabled) like this :
Image
Image

Don’t touch any other settings and it’ll be alright I guess :P You can save now your new picture in same .png format.

Be careful if you don’t wanna change the numbers texture after you’ve exported it from Jersey Editor, ‘cause you can’t re-import it like this (it won't work), you’ll absolutely need to turn the RGB colors into indexed colors.

So after all these steps, you can import the new texture into your jersey : just drag-drop the texture over the old texture in Jersey Editor and it will automatically change the texture (in live). (It works like Nba2k9 Iff editor)

I hope this post did or will help you, thanks for reading me (it’s not easy with my crappy english xD) and see you on NLSC.

PS : It may exist another way to edit numbers and letters but I don’t know it ^^ so sorry :)

Great tutorial (Y)

But there is 1 problem, when I open the jersey file it said:

Unhandled exception has occured in your application blah...

Then the application closes....

Sadly the editor does not work with 64 bit systems.

This works fine with numbers. My problem is when I use it to recolor the letters. When I change them to index 256 colors they lose their quality and some of the letters get edges with bigger pixels. Anyone knows how to fix this?

Be sure that you did all I indicated in this picture : (with the palet thing^^)

Cause the uniform palet makes the numbers and letters lose their quality


For the Windows7 or 64 bits compatibility problem, I didn't know about it. Maybe for Win7 34 bit, try to go to "properties" with right click on the JerseyEditor.exe and then, Compatibility tab, try to enable "run this program in compatibility mode for Win XP" or Vista, or other^^.
For the 64 bit systems, I'm really sorry for you guys :S ...Maybe we should try to contact Jor1980 to see if he can do something for all of you !

To keep the letters and numbers in high quality, add a stroke of pure white (FFFFFF) to your number or letter texture. then turn it to index colors. and because transparency is enabled, the white stroke will be gone when you import to jersey editor. this will cause the white (which is now transparent) to have jaggy edges instead of your numbers. Here is a screenshot of the Seattle jersey numbers i made. I did the procedure above and it is effective. I don't know if this works for away jerseys.

hi, ive tried editing jersey's for low settings.. ( uhxxx_lo.iff ).. nba 2k11

i've had success in changing the textures for the jerseys using the nba2kx mod tool..

but i noticed something odd with the numbers and letters...
during gameplay, the one that appears is the old/previous textures..
but during cutscenes, the one that appears is the new(edited) one..

how can i fix this?





tools used
- jersey editor 1.1
- nba 2kXmod tool
- photoshop cs5
- tried gimp & paint.net
