[Tool] Court Logos Normalizer (for non-US residents)

Postby Vl@d Zola Jr. on Thu Oct 06, 2011 2:23 am

OK, guys. Got the game several hours ago and, as many of you, i was disappointed by "messed up" logos.

So, here is a solution for the issue.
NOTE: your version of the game must be US (though, when i was writing this message, it was the only version in stores). If you are unsure, what version you have, give it a try anyway. ;) If you're sure, you have EU version AND the patch doesn't work for you, then there is probably no other way than getting US version somewhere. The only difference between the versions is .exe file, though.
NOTE2: Make sure, you have admin privileges, when running via .bat-file. Also, make sure, EmulateUS is in your AntiVirus white-list.

How To Use:
1. Download
2. Extract Both files into your NBA 2K12 folder.
3. Run the game via nba2k12.bat (you can also create a shortcut to this file and place it on your Desktop for an easier access :D ).
4. If you still can't see small logos, then you should change game language to English and restart the game via the Normalizer (credit for hint goes to mokoyfab). Should work fine after doing that.
5. *you normally won't get to this step* If non of above worked, you are also proposed to close the game, open your Saves folder (if you are unsure, how to do this, you can read the following thread: viewtopic.php?f=141&t=82789) and delete everything from there, which is less than 1 Mb (except for FDC files) in size (NOTE: in this case your game settings will be set to defaults, but all rosters, franchises, etc. will stay fine). Then try to run the game via the Normalizer once again.

What it does is emulating, if you are a US resident, while the game is being launched.

Works fine for me. Now Raptors logo looks exactly the same as on one of Jao's screenshots. :)

What exactly is the .bat file emulating, if changing the language doesn't work this year?

it's the exe that is emulating stuff, the batch file runs the exe, then the game, then the exe again

Same difference. Doesn't really affect what I was asking.

That said, exactly how does one run a game via a .bat file? Is it as simple as opening the .bat file, or am I making a horribly incorrect assumption there?

nope, you're right, you just double click it and it will run the emulator and game for you.

If it doesn't work, please, post, what your Operating System is.
I'm on Win7 and everything works fine.

The emulator changes Windows Registry and reverts the changes back, when you exit the game.

A .bat is just a series of text commands to Windows. Anything you can do with the Command Prompt you can write into a .bat as commands to execute.

NOTE: your version of the game must be US
Is there a difference between the US and EU versions besides the .exe?

Does the EU version have completely different (or missing) .iff files for the court textures, or is it just automatically using the lo-res .iff courts?

using the lo res courts were the workaround for the issue last year. It's all about the exe.

You've stated this twice, let Vlad have some peace... As patchers we don't have to obey everybody's demands... So just wait, but I don't see what the big deal is with the logos... Just play the game...
