Thanks guys I'm looking forward to getting this released too. I've been working on it all week in an effort to do so as soon as I can with it getting so close to 2K20 coming out, and I want to allow everyone to have some time to enjoy it in the time between now and then.

Yes @Gideon Prime my '67 Wilt from last year can be converted. Though I would probably want to give it an update prior to release since it was my first cyberface mod.

I am ready to release the NBA 2K19 CF Conversion Kit and will begin working on a tutorial to go along with it.

While I'm doing that, if you want you can go ahead and download/enable a couple of Blender addons from other creators that are used in the conversion process. I will go over them briefly in the video:

1) MultiEdit by Antonis Karvelas - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/antoni4040/MultiEdit-Addon/master/MultiEdit_1_1.py
Click on link above -> hit 'Ctrl + S' to 'Save Page As...' -> save it anywhere
Then go to Blender -> User Preferences -> Add-ons -> Install Add-on from File... -> select file where you saved it -> check the box to enable it

2) LoopTools by Bart Crouch
*This addon is already included with Blender. Just make sure it is enabled:
Blender -> User Preferences -> Add-ons -> Categories -> Mesh -> Mesh: LoopTools -> check the box to enable it

You will also need to have the 2K19-specific importer/exporter script which is the exact same thing except it can import the 2K19 skeleton. Download that here: https://forums.nba-live.com/downloads.php?view=detail&df_id=10738

Thank you agin for your work Trevor, I'm more hyped about this than 2K20 :P

When I try to save MultiEdit it automatically save as a .txt file so I can't enable it in blender. Do you know why ?

It might just be your browser that is automatically saving it that way. You could open it up in a different browser or if all else fails, just manually rename the file to have the (.py) extension instead

Yes for 2K17
I don't have 2K16 so I have not been able to test anything beyond an old mod I downloaded. It did appear to work though.
No for 2K15

Download the NBA 2K19 CF Conversion Kit from the Tools & Editors section here: NBA 2K19 CF Conversion Kit

face7541.zip

png7541.zip

^And download the converted Isaiah Austin seen in the tutorial:


Conversions from 2K17 can be done and are supported by the kit, but the focus of this video is first showing you how to do so from 2K18. I wanted to make sure and finally get this released and did not want to delay with waiting on 2K17 conversions. More info will be coming in the future about them.

Re: CF Conversions to 2K19 [8/9 - NBA 2K19 CF Conversion Kit RLSD w/ tutorial!]

Postby trevorjpt33 on Thu Aug 15, 2019 5:12 am

I am currently putting together a new tutorial for the CF Conversion Kit. The one available now was stretched out too long, it was divided into way too many steps (making it seem like more steps than it actually is), and I did a lot of over-explaining during parts that you just need to follow along with what I am doing in Blender. That and the sound quality = ass. Even worse than usual lol.

Did everyone including myself a favor and got a mic. I also will have ALL hotkeys/keyboard shortcuts that I use displayed at the bottom right of the screen as I press them, so that it is much easier to follow along and I don't have to announce every one of them.

I would be willing to help convert some of these players if someone could post the files that need to be converted or could post the one folder from 2k18 that has these players ( if 2k explorer works without the exe file). I really don’t want to buy an old version of 2k for $60 for converting players into 2k19 lol.

I'm gonna try it with someone from 2k17 this week. Thanks for the tutorial. I really think there must be a easier way though, I was trying to match the vertex of all objects of the body and once I got a very nice result, but didn't work again so I leave it that way. Now with your tools, I'm gonna give it another try to conversions.

Maybe down the road I could convert those but I’m more interested in recreating some retro seasons. I would like to add back the players that were removed from the game like Spencer Hawes, Martell Webster, Carlos Delfina , etc........that’s more of my focus for now. Randy Foye was really helpful since I recreated a few retro seasons back to NBA 2k15 so he was a nice addition to the rosters. Just sucks I can’t find a discounted rate for NBA 2k17/NBA 2K18. Both are listed at $60 while I can find NBA 2k19 for $20-$30 lol

Here is the playlist containing the updated videos for the NBA 2K19 CF Conversion Kit. Total of 3 videos. Tried my best to make it clearer and to keep it shorter so I hope this is easier to follow. This is my last big release prior to NBA 2K20. Depending on interest level with it being so close to 2K20, I may add a couple short videos to the playlist that expand with details about converting players with 3D hair and converting players from 2K17

Link to the whole playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gD7FoCBhbI&list=PLSIeAnq8xSigQM1-zH0OIb0SymQnKPhbb

1) A quick preview of the kit and what we will be doing in the conversion process

Re: CF Conversions to 2K19 ~ Updated CF Conversion Kit Tutorial RLSD 8/26!

Postby trevorjpt33 on Tue Aug 27, 2019 3:08 am

FYI There is an updated kit that was used in the new videos - Get it from the 2K19 Tools & Editors section below
NBA 2K19 CF Conversion Kit

I simplified the options available for use as 2K19 base files and added text files containing the necessary Prim sections, so that you can copy from there instead of doing all of the hihead.SCNE edits manually.

Also, here's 2K18 Earl Clark from the newest video for anyone who's interested:

Yeah I totally get that you don't want to spend all that money buying an old game. That's where I am at as far as 2K16 goes. I don't have the game and don't want to spend money on an almost 4 year old game, so the kit does not support 2K16 conversions even though it is possible.

Unfortunately, I believe it is against the rules here to share original game files. The only testing I was able to do for 2K16 was by downloading a modded cyberface.

No problem. As far as I know this is the easiest and the only way, for 2K19 at least. Hopefully it will be easier in 2K20.

I got one conversion from 2K27 and one for 2K18. The only thing that bothers me is players can't move the face. I mean, they don't chew gum, blink, move the mouth or eyes. It feels like their dead inside LOL
I believe that's because all the movement is kept with the head you shrink. The new head is just another object, like a facemask.
