Still no way to add a ninja head-tie to players?

Postby mithrxs on Mon Dec 09, 2019 8:35 am

Ive tried adding the head-ties to some of my cyberfaces before I put them up to download, but I cant seem to find a way to add them? I can add the regular headband just fine by using the player DNA but this isn't working at all for the head-ties. I know the PNG needs a separate .iff for the head-ties, but mine aren't working. If anyone knows of a fix it would be greatly appreciated.

NBA outlawed them. Maybe someone can show you how to add them in game.

If the player has a regular headband I can swap it out with a ninja but I haven’t been able to figure out how the game codes the ninja headband to be worn. It’s not in the hi head. SCN file and you can add the code to appearance.dat file but only the hair changes. No headband.

You could swap out the default headband and then the headband swap method would work but it would be an all or nothing scenario. Everyone would have the ninja.

I’m still looking into it.

it is a separate .png file. they look like this "png7503_headband_tie.iff". Not all the players have one, so you have to make one.

Thats really just about all I have figured out. If you find something lmk.

Ya I know it's a seperate file I just can't find the code that tells the cyberface to use that file so I can't assign it to other players. If a guy has a regular headband you can swap that png file with the regular png file that's what I was getting at basically. When you do the headband swap method TSOGood does in his video it is tricking the game into assigning the generic headband used in CAP so you can't just swap the png.

Does anybody know if by using Looyh's Hook you can add the "png####_headband_tie.iff" archive to a player that does not have one already in the manifest file? Curious since it does allow us to use cyberface ids that aren't in the manifest file.

Awesome! Then I imagine if you do that along with copying over the extra section in the appearance_info of a CF that has an already existing head tie archive you should be able to add a head tie

Can you clarify exactly what needs to be done? that would be great as I have been wanting to do this for awhile. It would be greatly appreciated.

Any updates? Ive added the "accessories" tag to the players appearance data. No clue what you mean by add the headband_tie.iff using looyh's hook, I just put it in the modded folder with the right png number. Nothing seems to be working.

have you tried using cheat engine to apply the headband? Headbands don't automatically show up until you turn them on.

the engine table I am using doesn't work, I have tried all the options in the accessories tab. Is there an updated table? Im on 1.05

:shock: I think that is your issue right there. You just need to assign the headband.
If you can't do it in cheat engine then just do it through 2K DNA (video below)

phpBB [video]


if you can't figure it out with the video, just make a created player with a headband, save him, then go back and assign cyberface with limnono trainer.

No no, I can do that lol. I thought you meant through the shoes/gear tab in the cheat engine (which doesnt work).

What do you do when you do this and it still doesnt work? Montrez Harrell and Jrue both have headband files included in their cyberfaces and when i add the headband. They dont show up. These are the only 2 it seems to happen with.

Switched back to 1.09 with the newest rosters and noticed something weird with Jrue... idk if this is just my game, but after some looking around 2k gave him back his headband tie (according to a youtube video I saw about the recent update) but my headband model is missing (this is not the normal headband, this is the tie headband)

So I would have to revert back to an older version of the game to get a headband on Jrue?

So after the changes in your example, is Tobias Harris still on Detroit? How do you put him back on the Sixers?

Thanks TGsoGood, I got it to work, next question is if I want to add a headband to another player, do I create another temporary name? Or can I use the same one (temporary) over again on another player and do I have to do the same process if I want to add a headband to a player on the official roster? It worked on my created roster BTW. Sorry for all the dribble about this.
