[Tool] Workarounds Tool (Scoreboard, Autosave, Sliders, PV)

NBA 2K13 Workarounds Tool
by Lefteris "Leftos" Aslanoglou


Quick Notes
  • Scoreboard
    This is a simple workaround for the "scoreboard disappearing" bug that plagues the retail version of NBA 2K13.
    To have it on top of the game, switch the game to Windowed mode and use the Always on Top switch in the tool. If you want to remove the borders from the game's window, you can try using a tool such as this one:
    http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/s ... p=30525996
    I'm looking into providing the option of the scoreboard being an overlay in the game (kind of like FRAPS shows you the framerate), but it's going to need some more research.
    This will have to do until then. Hope it helps!
  • Autosave
    Allows you to force Autosave on and off.
  • Sliders Import/Export
    This adds the ability to export the sliders part of the Settings file to another file, so that you can keep separate sliders files and be able to switch between them easily.
  • PlayVision
    Allows you to force Full PlayVision for All Plays, works with MyCareer as well.

That's great. I've been trying to find a way to disable the autosave through memory/hex editing to no avail, unfortunately. Thanks again, sir.

I definitely will be using the tool!

PeoplesChamp, it's a messy workaround, as it makes the saves read-only, meaning you can't manually save either while it's enabled, but it should prevent the game from autosaving as well.

I'm sure someone will find a way to permanently disable the autosave setting eventually, but this will do in the meantime. :)

Keep up the good work!

Yeah, 2K keeps giving me bugs to work around and removes features that I have to put back in. -sigh- At least I can help.

Great tool!

The bad thing is, play vision still doesn't work for me. In-bound plays only.

Dammit with this game. Values were elusive, but I believe I've found them. New version coming up soon.

Ok, Leftos. Thank you very much for your dedication buddy.

It's such a shame that every year we found issues with the release of this game...

v0.3.0.2 released!
Another attempt at fixing MyCareer playcalling, now with new offsets. Try it and tell me how it goes.

For me, after it saved with these values once, next time I fired up the game I didn't even need to use the tool. Your mileage may vary.

Leftos, Playvision seems to be working properly. I didn't even know there was a separate Playvision setting within My Career. Anyway, you fixed the issue. Thanks.

Postby Dangulica on Sat Oct 06, 2012 3:17 am

quick 2 questions (my career):

1. if i'm only interested in playvision, can i just start the tool, and then start the game in fullscreen (not windowesd)?
2. if for some reason during a game, i don't want my team to run plays (i'm not a PG) can i do this somehow? i dont mean disableing the playvision while the team still runs plays, but have them not run plays at all (freestyle).

thanks in advance.
