Ultimate Retro Roster NBA 2k20:Thunder Shaq- Offline Test Roster Released!

Postby Thunder Shaq on Sun Sep 08, 2019 5:14 am

Hello everyone! I'm back again with my retro roster for the new year.

Before I forget, I want to give a huge shout out to the following people for helping make this project possible. If you think you deserve a shoutout, but missing from this, just send me a PM!

Dee4Three- Barkley CF release, huge inspiration for this roster and always gave me a ton of advice
sticky-fingers- Has done such a fantastic job with courts and helped me learn the CE tables in 2k19
trevorjpt33- Cyberface conversions, particularly the Reggie Miller for the roster
ksmiz- for all his work on the CE tables which would make this roster impossible without him
looyh- for the NBA2k_Hook, without this, the roster would be nowhere near as accurate and usable

Also shoutout to anyone who comments in this thread with suggestions, advice, or general support for the project.





IMPORTANT, Please download both the NBA2k_Hook and Waigua and the mods for best experience with this roster when released!

Court and cyberface downloads for the roster will be released soon!


NBA2K_Hook:

viewtopic.php?f=258&t=107881

Waigua External File Plugin (To put the modded files in):

viewtopic.php?f=258&t=107881

Courts and cyberfaces modded files:

I will also personally put a disclaimer for the other people’s cyberface conversions, do not re-use or re-upload the Barkley without crediting Dee4Three and the other cyberfaces without crediting Trevorjpt33.

Here is an unfinished version of the roster that I want people to test to see if it fixes the court issues:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/uo5yq8brt ... 02.7z/file


I am making great progress on this roster! The roster is back with some new teams this time around. I wanted a more retro feel this time so this roster will feature some new teams from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s!

Here is the updated spreadsheet for teams in the roster:

Image


Teams in ORANGE are not yet confirmed for the roster, but may find themselves included. I have a tab labeled extra teams, which are teams that are added using the hidden expansion pre-made roster slots. Teams in orange are not guaranteed to be added!

I think this will be a great year for retro, please leave your thoughts in the thread and I will continuously be updating this with my progress. If anyone wants to help with courts again, I would be grateful, as I am not great with the creative side of modding. Shout out to sticky-fingers for his terrific work in 2k19! I will gladly work with you again lol.

NOTHING IS FINAL, I may move things around as I continue to plan.

Really love your roster for 2K19, well balanced, so happy to see your next project :D

With my new job, my schedule will be busier now, i dont think i could create all the missing courts for the teams you add.
But send me your list, I could have some stuff in the boxes that could help ;)

Suggestions ? Raptors 2018/19 :idea:

I’m in the same boat with a new job. I won’t have the same amount of time as I did a few months ago for the last roster. Mostly going to be evenings and weekends for me lol. Help as much or as little as you’re able to! I’ll strongly consider that Raptors team for their current slot. I won’t be rushing as much with this so take your time.

I've always used that Kenny Render for the 95 Rockets (as you know)

I believe if you swap in an appearance file from a player with his skin/body type, it will work.

It's been quite awhile since I messed with that.

No worries.

The appearance file is inside the players PNG.iff. Find someone with Kennys skin color, export both PNGs from 2K17 explorer, and swap the appearance file from that player into Kennys PNG.. Make sure the player has the same body type as Kenny as well.

Haven’t figured out the explorer tool yet, so no update on the Kenny Smith. I’m slowly creating players for the roster, but I don’t want to start working too much on the actual roster in case there are any major updates coming up with added legends

I spent much of yesterday going through cyber faces to find good lookalikes for players in my roster using the fictional faces they have in the files. Of course, the roster won’t really take off until I get a proper team editing table. For now, it’s mostly just creating missing players. Keep those suggestions and thoughts coming!

I’m probably not the best to ask, but it can probably be done when the roster editing tables get released

Never figured out the explorer tool. I’m hoping somebody fixes it for another roster and I’ll just take that one or something lol

1. This is awesome.

2. I humbly request that you consider the '99 Spurs for one of the slots. That was the best Twin Towers year, Duncan was a monster, Mario Elie was added, and the Spurs were an excellent team that is often overlooked because of the lockout. They went 15-2 in the playoffs, losing 1 game to KG's Timberwolves and 1 game in the Finals. In between, they swept the Kobe/Shaq Lakers and the Jail Blazers. Anyway, one of my favorite teams that never gets added. Instead we get rookie Duncan in '98. Womp womp.

I’ll take that Spurs team into consideration. I had them last year but didn’t see a lot of demand for them. Still in the planning phase while I wait for a team editor table

I'm strongly considering putting the 2010 Suns in the 2003 Suns slot. Marbury will still be represented on the 1998 Timberwolves, but I just think the '03 Suns are a bit unnecessary. I'm thinking I might add the 1983 Suns or possibly the 1976 Finals team instead.
