im still working on the guide, once its finished i'll copy and paste each section over my replies below
theres probably going to be a lot to this, since I want to be as thorough as possible, hence why there will be several placeholder posts made by me in the replies to keep all the tutorial bits at the top

If I include any misinformation or if any parts are confusing, unclear, etc, please reply so I can make any changes accordingly.

Tools Needed Before Starting

GIMP is essentially a free version of photoshop. In my opinion, it seems ideal for people to use who don't have photoshop and seems perfect for those who want to dip their toe into modding NBA 2K (specifically jerseys, courts, crowds, menu screens, etc).

Make sure to install these links below before getting started
GIMP: https://www.gimp.org/
GIMP dds plugin: https://code.google.com/archive/p/gimp-dds/
7zip: https://www.7-zip.org/
notepad++: https://notepad-plus-plus.org/

Also needed is a file exporter, one of these two will do (your preference as to which)
(both have video tutorials by TGsoGood, to help setup if you have not used the programs before)

gregkwaste's exporter:
viewtopic.php?p=1863961#p1863961
setup tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-c7gDA6Km_M

looyh's exporter
viewtopic.php?p=2001039#p2001039
setup tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=51-nYMTCyQU

And lastly, I converted Rob Davis' jersey template to work with GIMP
https://mega.nz/file/I0U3CYrT#ph8InvEOC ... i7OIWsKhF0

Starting Off

After installing everything, the first step I'd recommend is to extract three files from NBA 2K20 (a jersey, font, and tweak file). Ideally the 3 files you choose to extract would look somewhat similar to the one you have in mind to create so you have a good reference point. If not at the very least, after you extract some variation of these files, you'd have a base file that formatted in a way you know is fully capable of running in game. An example of the three files would look like this:

Code: Select all
1C                                           u012uta_current_home.iff 44585201613 4868836
1C           clothing/clothing_resource_u012uta_current_home_font.iff 44590398292 946060
1C          clothing/clothing_resource_u012uta_current_home_tweak.iff 44591344352 190030


I would then make a backup copy of those 3 files (just in case)

The next step is to make sure you have set the file types to open by default with the proper programs
To do so, right click and extract the jersey file
Image

Then open up the folder and change the defaults through the open with option
Image

.dds -> gimp
.TXTR -> notepad
.RDAT -> notepad++ (does not work in default notepad)

Image

You can delete that extracted folder after, since it is no longer needed

Next, open the archive and see the files you will be editing with gimp
Image
Image

The jersey_color & shorts_color dds files are the two files you'll want to edit first. If you open both of these two up, you can see the main texture used in game.

The Most Useful Tools in GIMP

Image

The magic wand looking tool is the most useful aspect of GIMP. Basically what it does is it allows you to mass select pixels. The threshold level changes the similarity of the colors of pixels.

So for instance, say with this pink razorbacks jersey in the picture, if you make the threshold higher, and select the pink color from the jersey, you could also end up selecting the white in the NBA logo accidentally. This is because like pink, white is a brighter color, and the threshold makes your selection broader. However, if you decrease the threshold, the variety of color you select decreases. So in theory, you'd want to set it at that perfect value where the NBA logo isn't effected at all, but you select enough around the black nike logo/razorback font to not look out of place and have unreplaced pixels.

By pressing U on the keyboard, it'll automatically switch to this tool
Also, hold shift while left clicking with that tool while selecting to add selections
and holding ctrl and while left clicking with the tool removes from your selection

Image
The next useful tool is the color picker. Pretty much speaks for itself
By pressing O on the keyboard, it'll automatically switch to this tool

Image
You can click those little arrows to flip the colors (i.e. in the screenshot flip from green to white as your primary color)
By pressing X on the keyboard, it'll automatically switch to this tool
Press D on the keyboard to switch the colors back to the default black and white

Image
The paint bucket tool is great after using the magic wand, since it can mass replace a color in your selection
By holding down shift and pressing B on the keyboard, it'll automatically switch to this tool

Image
Image

Last two tools I'll talk about are the select tools. I use these when I can't find the perfect threshold from the magic wand, and I have some pixels that didn't change. Then after I select what I want to change, I'd use the paint bucket again.

By pressing R on the keyboard, it'll automatically switch to the rectangle select tool
By pressing F on the keyboard, it'll automatically switch to the free select tool

GIMP in Action! (Step by Step example)

This is a link to download the jersey used in the following tutorial
https://mega.nz/file/xlk00A6b#b0v9VxSfG ... jBW4FP-5Ao

So for this example, I have my template open, and I used the open archive in 7zip to open the shorts_color file in gimp. (make sure not to close the 7zip window)

Image
Right now I have a random Nuggets shorts file open. With it theres all these mini map layers. You can completely ignore those. However, that main_surface layer is really important, and in this example, I'll show you why

Image
Image

So right now I have my Nuggets shorts, and the template. (ignore my selection on the nuggets screenshots, I just forgot to deselect before taking them)
Lets say I wanted to change the waistband in the Nuggets jersey from yellow to blue
Heres how I would do it

I'd go to the template, and left click and hold the "Left leg waistband color" and drag it all the way up to my preview of the Nuggets shorts
Wait a couple seconds while holding down the left click, then when gimp switches the window from the template to the shorts, drag and drop it in the middle of the Nuggets short preview

By doing it correctly, you should get something like this:
Image

Off to the right, select the main surface
Image

Then, use the color picker, select the shade of blue
Then switch back to that new layer from the template
Image

Next use the select tool, select hold shift and select both black parts that were just added
Then use the paint bucket tool and change the black to blue

The end product should look something like this
Image

However, we aren't quite done yet. Remember earlier I said that main surface part was very important? This is where that comes into play
Image

Right now that new blue layer I added is the first layer, which is not good. Gimp only allows you to export that first layer, so if I saved it now, it won't work in game since the shorts layer wont be saved.
So what you have to do is merge that top layer down

Image
This can be done by pressing the button with an arrow pointing down and three little rectangles to the left of the arrow

By doing so, this should be your result:
Image

Now that we are all finished up with our changes, go to file and overwrite the nuggets shorts file
Image

By overwriting, this makes sure that the file saves as the same specific dds format that is readable for NBA 2K20. DONT choose to overwrite if you haven't merged the layers together, as you will lose all other layers. You can overwrite if you are not done with editing your jersey, but you MUST make sure you have merged everything to one layer, (keep in mind this can always be undone at a different point, but not merging will make you lose all your progress on layers below)

Once you overwrite, you should see this at the top of your window, showing your changes have been saved
Image

Last thing to do now is exit gimp
Image
This window will pop up, you can just disregard any changes

Now go to your 7zip window and you should see this:
Image
Press ok and you are one step closer to being able to use your mod in game!

Unifrom Files

So basically there are 3 different dds files in the uniform files

color:
Image

region:
Image

normal:
Image

(there are all 3 of these for the shorts as well, I just didn't screenshot them)

So far, all you have edited is the color version. However, although you could manually edit the region & normal to be identical to the changes you made to the color, the easiest thing to do is replace the region and normal files with generic ones (that work for any jersey)

Here is a link to download the generic region & normal files: https://mega.nz/file/R4NUyQLK#MmSsBYXxw ... mZaPckRvu8

Just make sure to rename the generic ones from my download link so they match the names in the txtr files.
(It doesn't matter what you change it to, as long as they both match!)

i.e. jersey_normal.a2547771c6daba75 would become jersey_normal.____________
and jersey_region.7f39caf94d1ef64d would become jersey_normal._____________
etc.
(with the blank being whatever the original file name was)

The last thing you need to do is edit the TXTR files, and delete several lines of code, so you are left with Textual, Min, Max, Mask, and Binary lines (similar to my screenshot)
Image

And after you do that, the jerseys will work in game without any crashing

Font & Number Files

The font file includes the players name and uniform numbers, while the tweak is the position of where those two go on the jersey.

I personally don't exactly know how tweak files work yet. If I want to change one for a uniform I have in mid, I usually just find a similar one from a different jersey thats in the base game and extract and rename it. So for instance, the 1960s Celtics jerseys in the game do not have player last names on the back of the jersey. If I extract the current tweak files for the Celtics home and away and change the name to match the 1960s Celtics home and away, now the last names come up in the same position they would for their current jerseys. This is far more effective then trying to edit something yourself.

Now for the font files

The two files your going to edit are font_number_color and font_letter_color. I'd recommend using the magic wand and paint bucket to change the colors to what you want. For a beginner, I would highly recommend only recoloring what the base game has to offer, and not trying to invent your own. You don't need to make any adjustments to any other dds files

Now all that's left to do is delete a few lines from the TXTR files, as shown below (so again you are left with so you are left with Textual, Min, Max, Mask, and Binary lines)

I just added the very first steps, along with an example to get you familiar with using GIMP. I'm a bit tutorial'd out at the moment, but if anyone has any questions they'd like answered, I'll try to incorporate it whenever I add more to this

I wish that you cover more on doing a personal jersey. Like putting deisgns logos more stuff on creating personal jerseys.
Great thread BTW! IT'S A BANNGER for sure!

Just a quick question have followed this exactly. When I overwrite the dds in gimp, then exit it, i go back to my 7zip archive and it never seems to ask me to update file in archive. Thus it never overwrites the dds. Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

For me when I've experienced an issue similar to this its because of 7zip. For whatever reason using my technique, 7zip can be really sensitive, and doing something as simple as hitting the back button by accident will make that window asking to overtire a file unable to pop up. (Trust me, I've lost countless hours of work due to this

My advice is once you open a file using 7zip, don't touch that window (apart from minimizing) until you are completely finished and have exported your dds file from gimp. If push comes to shove, after exporting you could save the project as a default gimp project file (i think its called xcf, but im not 100% sure). That way, if 7zip doesn't let you overwrite, you still have a backup of your modifications and you can reopen the dds file and click and drag your layer(s) over.

I thought this may be the place I could ask this. I've been trying to find a list of the Jersey file names. Is there anything like that out there? I wanted the Mavs Jerseys file names and some more teams.

How do we get the jersey to show up on the jersey select screen before starting a game? Mine just shows the original jerseys, but does display the updated one once I'm in a game.

Code: Select all
\bu((\d{3})|(\d{3}\w{2,4})|(\d{3}\w{3}\d{2}))_(\d{4}|current)_((home)|(away)|(secondary)|(city)|(hwc2)|(hwc)|(christmas)|(practice))?_?((?:home)|(?:away)|(?:secondary)|(?:flex)|(?:hwc2)|(?:hwc)|(?:city)|(?:christmas))\.iff


here is a regex pattern to search for jerseys for anyone who might find it useful
may be useful if there is an update or anything changes

let me know if I forgot any alternate types or options as I haven't used it in a while

I followed this guide using photoshop. Got the jersey in the game but can't seem to find any luck trying to get the jersey number colors to change. I've edited them to the color I want but they keep going back to the default team's color.

What I found is that you have two choices, one, mod the tweak iff file. In order the achieve that, you will need a hex reader and an understanding of hex formulas. Or two, find the team jersey that has the numbers placed where you want it, (According to your example, the wizards, cavs, and a couple of other teams I believe, have what you're looking for.) then copy and paste the new tweak, font, and number into your font iff file. Now here is where I would test the mod in-game before making changes so that I know that it is placed correctly. Now extract the number and letter files into Photoshop. Pay special attention to the size of the files. It is important to note, that in the TXT files the sizes are listed until you remove them but keep in mind that the tweak is STILL looking for these dimensions to properly place the numbers and letters. If the size of the font you are replacing and the size of the font you want, are different sizes,(i.e. 2202 x 256 vs 1505 x 256) then (and here is where it gets a little tedious) you can make individual changes to the numbers you want to substitute. All you have to do is size up the numbers you want with the size of the numbers you want to replace. (Change 2202 to 1505 if 2202 is the size of the file you are replacing.)until each is aligned with the number under it. If you are confussed, you are working with two layers, one on top of the other. It does't matter whice layer you are modding. Once this process is completed, save your changes then insert the new changes into the iff file then place the iff file into your waigua folder.
P.S.
With this method I have found that I can insert my own created numbers and letters as long as I follow the directions above.
