When the reditor for 360 comes out, will we be able to edit jerseys, especially for CATS, etc... Or just for pc...?

you will be able to swap around what is on the disc, and even the DLC, but you cannot add new art to the game.

sure thing, use GIMP & the mod tool using this tutorial, and you will also want REDitor II (free version will work fine)

create the portrait, save as DXT5 dds
load the portraits and portraits_hi iff files in the mod tool, find a player to replace
use this resource (check both portraits and portraits_hi listings) viewtopic.php?p=1432583#p1432583
figure out what 4 number ID you want to replace, and replace that portrait in both files
then using the REDitor, find the player you want to give that portrait, and enter in that 4 digit ID in the portID column

Google will help you figure out how to install the plug-in. Essentially you just need to put a file into the right folder and start the program.

Can we use the texture editing tool to load the accessories' .iff files, and change their colors? I mean change their Team Color or something like that? Since hex editing is not effective...

nope, it will mess with all players with that accessory, edit it in the roster with the REDitor or figure out the hex.

How can I export files from .iff to have transparent background? I want to do some title screens... When I extract picture (for example smoke effects from title screen) from modtool it won't open in Photoshop with transparent background. I have Photoshop and Nvidia dds converter...

the Jersey Editor was created for 2k10, and the iff files have changed in 2k12. You can decompress the file before using the program, but it just doesnt support 2k12.

dmaxx17, you need to use the 3DM tool to edit numbers and letters. Export as a PNG and import with a transparent background.

i can edit a logo file that has already been uncompressed, but the ones that are the orginal compressed files, i get an error in mod tool.

some one also said to erase the cdf file and it will re-appear in game but that has not happened either.

...not really appropriate for the thread but if you delete the cache folder, it will just return again after you play some games. It is where temporary data and auto replays are stored

i know 2k13 is already released but i am stucked at 2k12 i want to learn editing shoe colorways since there are a lot of good shoe creators out there. please a simple step or a few images would really lighten me up. for now i do not want to touch RGB shoes i just want to learn editing colorways of nshoes like dwade's shoe. atleast i can start learning with that.

edit: i have downloaded gimp, + i have adobe collection. what add ons do i sill need? i also had a little experience on editing cyberfaces i wanted to have my own cyberface but i failed. i used stephen curry's cf id pasted my face but boom still looks like stephen curry. =0
