Badger's NBA Live Fixes/Renovations - Widescreen Fix Released!

Postby Murat on Mon Jan 29, 2024 12:03 pm

Hello everyone,

As I mentioned here, it is possible to fix aspect ratio for widescreen in NBA Live series. This way the players will not stretch anymore. There was another solution that involved hex editing the aspect ratio but this time FOV was not adjusted. Now it is possible to avoid clipping.

I also found a way to change available resolutions without hard modifying the executable. Big thanks to Dmitri from FIFA forums who helped me to code this stuff. I will continue to make fixes and improvements over executable functions as I learn C++ and reverse engineering.

Here are some screenshots;

I will make a first release after the changes become stable. For now there will be 10 resolutions available for NBA Live 2005-06-07 and 16 for NBA Live 2008.

Edit: Here are the releases so far.

NBA LIVE 2005-08 Windowed Mode
NBA LIVE 2005-08 Widescreen & Resolution Support 1.0

Update: There is still some clipping but I am looking for a solution. However the changes will not require any hex editing anymore and the install will be pretty easy. Just stay tuned.

Players clipping on widescreen looks like a deeper problem than I expected. But I am working on other things.

Such as, creating a windowed mode in NBA Live 2005-08 without any external application.

Here are the previews for 2005, 06 and 08!

amazing, simply amazing :applaud:

three questions:

1. could you share windowed mode fix?
2. could you also fix issue when .exe file stays in the background after exiting the game?
3. are you going to make this also for live 07?

I fixed player clipping issue in NBA Live 2005. It needs to be worked upon but I found the function that disabled players
For comparison, check the videos.

https://youtu.be/IFwQeIIkqlA
This is without fix and a fictional resolution of 1600x600

https://youtu.be/k_1o-n3rE1k
This is with fix

Btw, this is WIP

@murat, this is by far one of the greatest mods ever released for nba live 2005-08. hats down and thank you so, so much my friend :bowdown:

few questions though:

1. i assume this can't be used in nba live 2004, so do you plan the same for that game too?

2. is it somehow possible that, in the future, antialiasing setting could be improved/added?

also i wanted to share you something, that might be useful for you. this is the nhl 2004 launcher made by nhl 04 modding community member "vod". with this, nhl 2004 runs like any other newer game, also aliasing setting is included. take a look at this and see if you could have any use out of it:
