Thunder Shaq: 1996-97: 1997-2011 Offline Draft Classes Uploaded

Postby Thunder Shaq on Tue Jun 02, 2020 6:13 am

phpBB [video]




Upon seeing that the 1995-96 Mod is unlikely to release for free, I felt that it is now best that I can provide the community with a 1996-97 Roster open to all (this was not a paid mod before, I just never released it publicly :D)

A disclaimer I have is that it has significantly more created faces compared to all the cyberfaces that were made for the 95-96 mod, so I can’t promise the same level of modded experience as that other project. That being said, I have put in hours of work into this roster and I feel okay with a public release. Especially now that it seems we won’t get the other project for free.

It features a plethora of custom cyberfaces, headshot portraits, action shot portraits, and some modded courts and scoreboard (all credit to sticky-fingers for the courts and scoreboard).

I have worked on accompanying draft classes, but of course 2k only lets you upload 5 at a time.

Here is what you will need to install:

1997 Season Mod Pack : http://www.mediafire.com/file/guq15g88j ... ds.7z/file

Draft Class Mod Pack (you should add this to your waigua anyways even if you don't use the draft classes): http://www.mediafire.com/file/j30l1thac ... es.7z/file

Add-on pack for some late cyberface additions: http://www.mediafire.com/file/l8uo0i4oz ... ns.7z/file

MAKE SURE THE FOLDER YOU PUT ALL THIS FILES IN IS TITLED waigua, if the file is titled something like waigua.1997, make sure it is just named waigua


Search my name on NBA 2k20: Thunder Shaq and download the roster titled 1997


You are also going to want to install NBA2k_Hook because that is how the courts are going to work. You are going to place the Config file from the main mod pack in this folder: viewtopic.php?f=258&t=108024


I also have an offline download for draft classes spanning from 1997 through the 2011 draft. If you don't know how to download offline files, I would check the tutorial section

Special thanks to anyone who contributed to this roster, either directly, or by providing their work publicly and indirectly supporting this:

-Sticky-Fingers: Custom courts and scoreboard included in the mod pack
-Dee4Three: cyberfaces used such as bald Drexler, Matt Maloney, Brent Price, Sedale Threatt
-Mr. Star: Some of his cyberface conversions are used in future draft classes
-Retroman: Cyberface conversions used in draft classes
-hova: Mikki Moore and Danny Fortson in draft classes
-Glenski: Conversions he did for players such as Lorenzen Wright, Malik Rose, Dale Davis, etc.
-Shuajota: I believe he made the 1996-97 76ers Jerseys
-2kspecialist.net: other assorted cyberfaces

Let me know if I missed anyone!

Things I will try fix:
-Arena names to represent the ones of the time
-Try to get 100% accurate courts, I know some aren't the exact one from 1997
-Any glaring inaccuracies brought up in this thread

Thank you all for the support!

Sticky- I have made draft classes for 1997-2005, but like I said I only have slots for 1997-2001. Not sure the best way we can coordinate this, but I appreciate the help. Like I said, some of your work is included in the mod, so I hope I have your blessing to release :D

CFJ1- yeah this is the roster that he will be using for a future MyLeague simulation. I provided it to him early, but with recent news of the 95-96 roster, I felt like I should release this to all on the forums.


I was barely born for this season, so I hope I have done it some justice :) . Look out for the mod pack a bit later everyone. In a few hours if there are no hold ups

I am looking to release the mod pack tonight, I just wanted to gather my list of credits for those who directly or indirectly contributed to this mod. I didn’t want to release it and not give proper credit to anyone. I have worked on accompanying draft classes, but of course 2k only lets you upload 5 at a time.

This thread will be much more fleshed out this evening with a release.

This sounds like a very promising project indeed!

Are you going to have it like the early half of the season where the teams had the 50th Anniversary logo on their courts, the gold logo on the jerseys, and their alternate/throwback uniform?

I don’t think every team will have the gold logo on the jerseys. I will see sticky-fingers has made all the 1997 courts. I know he sent me a few, but not sure if he made a complete set. I know teams like the Kings and Heat have their alternates and others will as well. If you see any teams with missing alternates AND the jersey is already in the game files, I will add those as soon as I can.

I appreciate all the support! I just want to remind everyone that I was just a baby during this season :lol: , so if there are any glaring or offensive inaccuracies that you find, feel free to point it out lol. Despite all the hours of research and gameplay I dug through to make this, there is likely stuff I have overlooked. I will try to updates based on feedback. Things related to tendencies, animations, accessories, and ratings will come through faster than artwork and cyberface related updates.

No problem.
for the draft classes, you could replace 97-01 by 02-04 temporarily on 2K Share, time for me to grab and share. I didnt know theres a limitation on 2K share.

This utilizes the Hook tool, so the files themselves are not overwritten, but teams are assigned the different courts in-game

Buying 2k20 for PC just for this.

Hoping there's a good enough draft class for each year until 2020! Thanks!
