UPDATE DROPPED

Mod Pack 16
https://www.mediafire.com/file/l99ewczy ... 16.7z/file


For Improved overall and MyLeague experience with these season rosters, I HIGHLY encourage you download these updated rosters

Update Breakdown:

1985-2012 Season updates (2013-2022 will see the same in the future)

-Head coach accuracy improvements: Coaches should all be accurate and even some assistants (Removed coaches that shouldn't be there (e.g. Steve Kerr while he's a player)
-Arenas (names and courts should be mostly accurate, with only a few still not perfect)
-Dornas (era specific sideline ads for 1990-1999, 2000-2010 (I have another set of ads for maybe 2011-2016ish but I haven't gotten to update those seasons yet)
-Team History (# of titles and finals appearances should be accurate for each season)
-General tendencies, animations, ratings, and accessories updated. Also filled out rosters with more role players
-Contract accuracy improvements (lengths and amounts adjusted for 2020 salary cap. Players should be free agents when they generally were IRL)
-Player vitals (years pro, draft details, nicknames removed, and the birthday glitch where some players don't age in MyLeague is fixed)
-More season/era specific cyerberfaces included in the update.

Brand New:
-1985 season roster
-1985 draft class
-2017-2022 draft classes
-Added All-star teams to 2023 roster
-2023 updated to playoff rosters

URR V1:
1985 Spurs changed to 1983 Spurs
2014 Pacers changed to 2013 Pacers

URR V2:
2017 Bulls changed to 2022 Warriors
2012 76ers changed to 2023 Heat

Thanks for all the kind words, I'm glad everyone is enjoying it! I have been informed that the 1985 Pacers jerseys are missing the numbers. To fix that, please download these files and place them in your clothing folder

Hey Thunder Shaq,

So I tried adding in a new SYNC.BIN like you told me in the YT comment section about Eddie Johnson, (and just recently Eddy Curry and Wayne Embry as well), and all it did was disallow access to the rosters. I think because I have an old exe version of the game, it won't let me access their cyberfaces in the newer patches. Are you able to just send me their cyberface files or provide a link so I can manually add them to the game? Their id's are 8671 (Young Eddy Curry with braids) and 8674 (Eddie Johnson) and I forgot Embry's one, just double-check if you can. Thank you so much for your work. This new update is awesome. You have made 2k great again!

Thank you Thunder Shaq for all these updates!

Anyway, does anybody had any luck running this mod on Steam Deck/Linux?

Things I tried from the forum:
1. The winetricks/protontricks -> Libraries -> dinput8.dll method
2. The WINEDLLOVERRIDES launch argument method

Both didn't work.

Amazing mod my man.

Quick question though, is there any way to replace the "Expansion" teams and put in the actual expansion teams for them? ex. Vancouver Grizzlies

Love this mod. Only thing I can think of that could help would be some retro shoes. Is there any possibility of converting and importing the retro shoes from the NBA 2k19 classic seasons Mod?

I'm actually not sure. The issue is I believe that mod replaces shoes and I don't want to overwrite certain shoes. I tried importing shoes from 2k23 and it didn't work

Yeah I wouldn't want to overwrite all the shoes but it would be nice to have as a file replacement (i use the JSGME program) when playing with the 80's and 90's teams. I prefer the gameplay of 2k20 but love the 2k19 shoes. It gives it a higher level of immersion. Wondering if Makichiste would be able/willing to have his 2k19 shoes converted and able to import to 2k20 if possible? Looks like he has done some according to this post.

Hey TS, awesome work yet again, your rosters and draft classes have opened up a whole new world in deep simulation of different wacky scenarios in MyLeague and more!

I have a question, i tend to want to start a new myleague, and add 2 teams from your URR rosters (mainly v2) , one in the east and one in the west, in the hopes that they will meet in the finals, and i'll be able to see who's truly the best team, run the sim again, etc. The only problem is that the default teams that are already there upon customizing what teams are in the league are so OP that sometimes the teams i'm actually interested end up not even making the playoffs (no joke), i'm wondering how you would set up a scenario like this? could i for instance set up a scenario where the 10s stars are in the west and the 00s stars are in the east? is there some way to have the rest of the league essentially be a control group? would love to hear if this is possible, and in what way you would do it!

Btw if you're like me and mostly f*** around in Myleague, let me know some interesting experiments / scenarios that i can try out!

Rn i'm currently using the 2009 roster and forming the banana boat squad on the heat!

Pretty much anyway to influence the regular season is going to be pretty tedious :lol: MyLeague has a "Force Win" feature where you can guarantee that the team wins when you simulate the game, but I believe that is one game at a time. Very tedious. You can also control every team in the league and sabotage their rotations (bench the best players). If you have injuries off and there are no trades because you're controlling, the rotation should stick. 2k's sim can be really bad sometimes. So many of the Tim Duncan era Spurs teams end up in the lottery despite stacked rosters and coach.

Some fun scenarios in MyLeague is using the URR roster and stacking the league with only teams led by an MVP winner (01 76ers, 04 Wolves, 13 Heat, 11 Bulls, 86 celtics, etc). A classic option is starting a simulation right before or after an important draft class. 85, 96, 03, 09 are all pivotal points in league history. Other fun choices are recreating/changing history such as signing Tim Duncan to the Magic

Hey Thunder Shaq, incredible work on this. I remember being a kid, collecting cards and playing NBA Courtside and always thinking, "I wish I could do more with this." Your rosters are allowing me to live that out, and I'm immensely thankful for all of your (and everyone else who contributed's!) hard work.

I did want to report two little oddities I ran into while toolin' around with everything.

1) Dino Radja is invisible. I downloaded all the packs and everything looks and feels exactly as it should, except for that (I also had the Eddie Johnson problem, but your recent post in here fixed it). It was in the 1995-96, but when I went back to 1994-95 it was the same deal. He's the only one I'm noticing at the moment. This isn't urgent; since he was oft-injured I can realistically start my season with him on IR lol.

2) I flirted with the idea of starting a 1993-94 season but the Chicago Stadium dornas had a bit of a distracting problem where it would list four of the same sponsors followed by a different one as the fifth panel (hope I'm using the language right; I'm not a creator). I do like the dornas very much, and since I've committed to a 1995-96 I'm mostly just reporting this to your attention. I've play tested a ton of the courts and it's incredible what you all have done!

I'm going to be playing these for a very long time, and thank you for keeping this going.

Were you able to try the SYNC.BIN fix? If it didn't work I can just try to export the Radja cyberface. He, like Eddie Johnson aren't mods, but were added to the files later in the NBA 2k20 cycle.

I see what you mean about the 94 bulls dornas. Seems to be an issue specific to that arena because the others in the 94 season worked great

Btw, is there a list somewhere of what years the default teams in the V2 ML roster are? i could probably figure it out by looking at the rosters, such as the cavs, which are obviously the 09-10 cavs because shaq is on the roster, for instance, but it might make it easier to have a list, so i know what all the default teams are!

I'm not entirely sure what the SYNC.BIN fix would be specifically (sorry, new to all this); I did try to just re-download the file in Step 18, overwrote my previous SYNC.BIN in the local folder, and everything is pretty spot on but Dino still isn't showing up, unfortunately.

As for the dornas, I'm not losing sleep over it. Heck if I decide to go back to that season the Bulls are moving out of there anyway, that'll just make a better case for it lol.

I have a video on the YouTube channel but it is a bit outdated. The easiest way is also downloading the URR V2 file. It's the same exact roster as the ML version, but it has the years attached to the default roster slots (it just can't be used in myleague)
