Struggling to assign cyberface

Postby zerojumpshot on Thu Mar 18, 2021 3:48 pm

Hi, So I don't know if this is where I post this, but I'm going insane trying to figure this out.. I downloaded this Thanasis Antetokounmpo Cyberface, so I can update his in game cyberface, and I for the life of me, cannot find any videos, or anything that shows me or tells me how I'm able to do this.. I don't know if I missed a step somewhere, I've got the 2k hook installed, I've got 2k tools installed, I've got cheat engine installed, I have all of that. But I'm not sure what to do.

so what you do is put the .iff files to \Mods\ folder.

then run your 2K game and make sure that you've loaded your 'user created roster' where you want Thanasis to be assigned Cyberface on.

then alt + tab to your 2Ktools and search for Thanasis and go 'Edit Player' and ensure his FaceID is updated from 1 to the file name that you have there; in my case, Thanasis Face ID should be updated to 4180.

the Thanasis cyberface that i have contains of few elements:
  • png4180*.iff
  • face4180*.iff

Hope that helps!

So, his face ID is already 4180.. and I moved those .iff files to the mods folder, and nothing is changing. I'm not sure what to do.

You need to be in your custom roster for it to work. I hope you are not viewing it in 2K default roster because Thanasis face will not change there.

Make sure that you have created your custom roster.

I'm in a custom roster and everything, and it's just still showing me his default scan.

What're Thanasis' file names (*.iff) in your Mods folder?

Very odd, man.

The other way to troubleshoot this is by downloading other players cyberface, rename them to 4180 and see if Thanasis' face change.

For example: maybe try putting lebron James CF to Thanasis and see if that works.

If it does, that means something wrong with Thanasis cyberface files you've downloaded.

Well, the weird thing is, I also downloaded a Kenrich Williams cyberface, and that one didn't work either.. I downloaded a Darius Bazley one, where his hair is different, and that worked. So it makes no sense to me.

This is the only Thanasis that exists for 2K21 and i am pretty sure i have got it loaded just fine.

In saying that, i need to double check but i am fairly confident the CF got reflected in my custom roster.

Isn't this his updated Cyberface?

There should be total of 6 .iff files from Thanasis' Cyberface as below:

Kenrich William should also work:

Both players should be simple enough to configure as their default 2K FaceID has the proper ID and not 1.

so you should have in your C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\NBA 2K21 folder:
The dlls for the hook go in here
a mods folder where you put the CFs
and also a NBA2K_Hook folder

If it works for some then the only issue can be that Thannis has a different CFID in your game. What mode are you using to try and see it? MyTeam, MyCareer, PLay Now etc?

Alright, so I didn't have all 6 .iff files in the folder, but I added the rest and it still didn't work. And yes I have everything located right where it should be, and Thanasis has the same CFID, I used that CFID and put it on different players and it showed up his original scan, but for some weird reason, the new CF does not show up.

I've done another one since, I did a Trevor Ariza one, and all I had to do was drag and drop the .iff files and it worked, I'm not sure what's wrong with this Thanasis one.

Can confirm, I did just get the Kenrich Williams one to work as well, so now I'm only having issues with that Thanasis one..

If you open nba2k tools whilst in the game you should be able to find his cfid, it might have been changed and you can change that back to match the iff

So if you rename another cf iff to 4180, does that change him in game?

I have had the same issue with a James Johnson headshot. It shows up as the updated one (pelicans version) in NBA2kTools, but as the old one (heat version) in the game. If anyone can help lmk, at this point I uninstalled and reinstalled the mod pack and I'm going to try it again later.

James Johnson not working for me either... my guess is that 2k changed the id of some players portrait ? Just like they sometimes do with the murals ??
