NBA Live 2020 HWC Released

Postby kdubmods on Fri Aug 16, 2019 6:36 pm

All,

I released a "Preseason Edition" of NBA Live 2020 HWC, which is based off NBA Live 96, but with updated rosters (as of 07/31/2019).

There are some more graphic updates I want to include before the season starts, such as updating the intro screen (e.g. change 96 to 20). Enjoy in the meantime!

OK,

The "Season Opening Edition" has been released:
NBA Live 20 HWC (Sega Genesis)

I think you'll like this one. More accurate team rankings and attributes for the 2019-2020 season, so it feels more like the original, but with updated rosters!

Good stuff! I've been tempted to do the same for NBA Live 96 PC, as part of our ongoing 25th Anniversary of NBA Live celebrations.

OK,

The latest update, Rev E, has finally been released. This one includes the 2020 All-Star and Trade Deadline updates. This will probably be the last edition for this year.

COVID-19 cannot hold this version down!

So, I went ahead and created a "Rev F"... because COVID-19.

The main changes are:
*fixed everyone's "stamina" via the minutes per game (MPG) setting I found; more accurate
*upgraded James Harden to Michael Jordan level of buckets (w/less hops, but more 3PTS)
*retired, hid, and improved Vince Carter

This is really fun, especially with the All-Star Teams!

Interesting! Would you happen to have any formulas for that? I'd be interested to try it out in the PC version.

Here's what I found,

After comparing 1995 NBA player's minutes per game (MPG) statistics to the NBA live editor's spreadsheet data, I found out column "CC" must be for stamina.

In particular, initial testing showed the integer value ranges from 0-20, which is half a player's MPG value, rounded up. For example, if a player averaged 20 minutes a game, then their CC value is 10. If they play 33 minutes, then add one (34) to make it even, and divide it in half and get 17.

What started me down this rabbit hole is I remembered Latrell Sprewell played lots of minutes at GSW during that time. Then, after using this page for comparison, it verified I was headed the correct way.
https://www.basketball-reference.com/le ... ::mp_per_g

Now, there *seems* to be a limit/cap of 40 MPG per player--a max "CC" value of 20--but this hasn't been thoroughly tested. However, I figured someone playing that many minutes per game is good enough.

Doesn't look like that translates to the PC version's values, unfortunately.
