Nope. I haven't released any roster updates since 2013, but others have released rosters for NBA Live 08.

Re: Andrew's Updates | NBA Live 18 & NBA Live 19 Title Screens

Postby Andrew on Wed Jun 27, 2018 11:42 pm

Just a couple of quick updates. Following on from the earlier release of my NBA Live 18 Title Screen update from the game itself, it's another title screen based on the NBA Live 18 cover art featuring James Harden, and one based on the newly unveiled NBA Live 19 cover art featuring Joel Embiid. You'll find them in the NBA Live 08 section, but they can be used for NBA Live 2005, NBA Live 06, and NBA Live 07 as well. Just place the .big file in the sgsm folder!

Re: Andrew's Updates | Default Roster Primacy Fix

No further updates on any bigger projects as yet (but do stay tuned), but I have released a small fix that we probably should've had years ago. I was talking about the issue of Primacy being recalculated in Breems' story topic, and he brought up the idea of having a Primacy fix for the default rosters (which he is using). As such, I've whipped up one that you can download here:

:arrow: Default Roster Primacy Fix for NBA Live 06

Note that it will display some errors when it can't find certain players in the database. This happens because some players get pruned when you start a new Dynasty game, and I just added the data for all original players to the batch file. All players that the batch file does find should be fixed accordingly, though.

As with the Primacy fixes included in the NLSC roster updates, it should be run fairly regularly, notably whenever there are trades and injuries. Please note that if you're using an NLSC roster update, you should use the Primacy fix that's included with it; this one is for the default roster only. Again, it's just a small fix that I probably should've made years ago, but now we've got it for anyone indulging in some retro gaming.

Worked like a charm, thanks! I actually didn't get any errors running it against my dynasty.

I'm guessing the only "downside" is if I run it during an injury, I'll be undoing the game's attempt to recalculate primacy ratings for the remaining players on that team? My guess is these are relative values, so shot distribution would still be relatively accurate.

Also, does the game lower primacy ratings as players age/regress? The only other issue I can think of is if I'm still running this a few years into the dynasty and aging/regressing players are still taking the same amount of shots. I severely doubt that will be an issue because a) players regress very slowly in this game and b) I've never played more than 2-3 years of a dynasty.

That is a possible downside, but I think you'll mostly be fine to run it on a regular basis, even if players are still injured. If you want to take a look around the league and see when big names are back in the lineup following injuries, that might be optimal if you wanted to try that approach. I think the worst case scenario is that shot distribution will be a bit more even, but that's probably a realistic result if a big scorer is out of action anyway.
