IF anyone is looking for a very realistic gameplay experience I have found some awesome sliders but you will have to check out Nogsters Game Sliders at Operationsports.com (in the 2k9 sliders forum) and if you pair it up with Nogsters NBA2K9 team/player tendencies sliders (2k9 roster forum) you will have an epic game experience! Trust me, Nogster has been playing with NBA 2k series for many years and he knows his stuff and I've tested his game sliders and team tendencies and the game plays so realistically now! Before when I was playing against the Heat, Beasly would take most of the shots and D-Wade wasn't playing like the superstar that he was, but now D-Wade is dominating and taking most of the shots just like in real life as he takes it strong to the hoop. Orlando was killing me too, Howard was banging down low so i doubled team him and he passed it to Hedo and Rashard Lewis for 3s man... It was so awesome. Superstars play like their real-life counterpart, if you use Nogster's sliders. (Y)

P.S. if Nogster is reading this oh man, THANKS!!.... :bowdown: U got my respect by making these slider sets, I wasn't very pleased about the gameplay before i set the sliders since the star players wouldn't play like star players (their FGA were too low) and that there were too man Points in the Paint (cuts that results in easy layups) but now Stars like Dwight Howard, Wade play like they do in real life!

Hey man, my only problem is when i'm playing against Miami, it seems like Beasly is doing much of the scoring instead of Wade, does that happen to you too?

Just to let you guys know that Sliders for the PS3/360 version of 2K9 don't work well for those who play on the PC. If you are planning on looking for sliders make sure that the slider settings are intended for PC users only otherwise the game will not play well (such as Fear's Pc Sliders at http://www.operationsports.com/forums/n ... pro-2.html)

I haven't noticed a difference. I was using BL sim sliders on the 360 before getting the pc version, and it played similar to me. I've changed them since then, which is probably what I woudl have done on the 360. Made my own sliders, along with your changes to get the superstars more involved.

I made a thread at operationsports asking ppl if they feel the game plays differently on PC compared to the 360/ps3 version using the same sliders, http://www.operationsports.com/forums/n ... users.html and one of the poster who is an experienced 2K basketball fan on the 360 relied saying that he tried one poster's pc sliders on his 360 and the game played terrible... but maybe that was just one game he played that was unique. Right now i'm using Fear's PC sliders + my adjustments and the game has improved, but it's not perfect yet since i'm still experiencing quite a lot of PIP.

I'm still experimenting on how to get PIP lowered so that the CPU does not throw passes to cutting teammates for easy shots.

I actually got more PIP when I used your superstar slider adjustments, although the cpu's offensive flow was alot better, and of course they use them now. Down by 3, they called an inbound play to Redd in the corner. He knocked it down and tied the game. He took 24 shots, while Jefferson took 15. I can remember playing them before and they just played 5-man ball, finding the best opportunity, regardless of the player. Now they play more realistic to how they really play.

I think what caused a rise in the PIP was the lowering of help defense. I will raise it back to where I had it and see what happens. If it's not that, then it's a combo of it and on-ball defense, maybe even defensive awareness, because I lowered that, too.

I've got the slider settings of the BL Sliders now, i'm going to test the out with my adjustments to increase Superstar utilization like what you are using now Pdub, I will let you know if I can find a way to lower PIP too.

Sure Pdub, can you post yours? Thanks

-Edit- For those who haven't seen my other thread on how to get the cpu superstar more involved in game here it is:

Hey guys after playing 2k9 for the pc for weeks and weeks, I found that the CPU didn't really showcase their Superstars properly when I played against them. Sure they would average in around 18-24pts per game but imo it wasn't enough, their star players (Wade, Pierce, Iverson....) just wouldn't dominate the game and noticed that most of the secondary players (Ray Allen, Jefferson, Beasly in particular, etc) would get equal or more FGA than the Superstar player.

So I found that if i lower certain game sliders that the superstars would be more involved, the other sliders that I did not mention doesn't really affect superstar's ability but here's my changes:

User On-ball defence = 50 (less pressure on cpu superstar therefore creating more space for superstar to operate instead of having to pass to teammates often)
Cpu triple-threat = 50 (cpu uses less shot clock making more time to create offence instead of standing on one spot)
Cpu sizeup = 73 (cpu superstar tries to create his own shot off the dribble more often)
Cpu Offensive Awareness = 30 (cpu looks to their superstars more often instead of jacking it up when they are free but uses more of the shot clock)
User/Cpu Help Defence = 0 (just read that this slider may be reversed and I've noticed that 40% of the pts scored are PIP when i did this, also there seems to be more flow to the game instead of a stagnant offence)
User/Cpu Screen Success = 50 (to limit the number of free looks the cpu secondary players gets therefore forcing opposing teams to look for their star player more to score)

Well any feedback would be appreciated and I would like to hear what you guys have for sliders in order to get the Cpu superstar more involved

Pro Difficulty
9 minutes Quarter Length
Fatigue On
Injuries On
Clutch Factor Off
Real Player FT% Off
Game Speed 75
Player Speed 70(Association/Season mode only)
Free Throw Difficulty 85 I know my team's release point well.

NBA Rules

Everything On
Charging 85
Blocking 85
Reaching 65
Shooting 70
Loose Ball 85

User/CPU

Offense

35/42 Post shots aren't automatic at these settings.
44/44 Midrange shots are not automatic, nor are they constant bricks.
50/48 Contested 3's end up at about 20%, open 3's at 50
44/44 Highly contested layup end up missing. Haven't seen an open layup missed.
50/50
20/20
50/50

Defense

38/38 I may lower this yet again, because when either me or the cpu has a good day on defense, steals are in the double digits.
0/0 TC#10's Superstar edit

Attributes

40/40
50/40
50/50
50/50
50/30 TC#10's Superstar edit, used to have it at 65 for cpu.
60/50 Used to have it at 75 for cpu, now I am getting more open jumpers.
65/35 I suck at offensive rebounding, but the cpu gets them all the time.
60/55
60/60
50/50
50/50
48/46 At 46 the cpu makes pretty good subs.
50/50
50/50
45/45
50/50
20/20
50/65 Cpu on-ball at 65 otherwise I can use triple threat drives to create space everytime.
50/50

Tendencies

I make my user tendencies based on how I play when controlling a team because I think they have some sort of effect, either positive or negative, depending on if you play true to them.
The cpu tendencies are based on what I think is a priority. I used to have them much different, but I found the cpu to play a better game of ball when I keep them closer together because that way none of the tendencies override the others too much.

55/50
45/52 +1 (The +1 means it is actually one higher than 52, but still not at 53) I want them to take more midrange shots, so this is the highest tendency slider
50/50
60/52 This is one higher than 3PT so that non-3PT shooters will drive instead of shooting if they are open. Coaching sliders will override it though.
40/48
52/51 Keep it higher than 3 pointers.
55/46 TC#10 Superstar edit -4 to make sure it has an effect.
35/51 +1
55/51
45/51
50/51
50/51
70/75
40/40 With this any higher there are way too many reaching attempt/fouls by the cpu and my cpu controlled teammates
80/70
50/73 TC#10 Superstar edit

Thanks for the sliders and explanation Pdub. Also if you don't mind, could you make a list of Negatives with the sliders you are currently using. I know you've mentioned that there seems to be an increased in PIP, I just wanna see if there's any other problems so i can experiment and try to fix, Thanks bro.

Nothing is really standing out right now that I can tell. Before I tried your edits I wasn't getting alot of PIP from the cpu, and the cpu was less active around the rim. I'll take a little unrealistic PIP as long as the shot distribution between the stars and role players is good, and the game is fun and competitive. I may turn help defense strength back up, as I just shot over 60% from the field, probably due to the lowering of defensive awareness and help defense strenght for the cpu. I'll turn it back up and play and note the differences.
