thought it was just me. I think I may switch the shooting to Real%, instead of timing. Also playing MC, and Derozan hit two fading treys.

Original posted by BELUBA (Mike Wang, 2k Sports) @ OS forum

To give some insight on the actual tuning that I made... here's essentially what happened.

The shot heuristics are pretty complex but at a basic level, pre-patch the numbers looked something like this for a decent shooter at mid-range:
Wide open = 45%
Fully Contested = 35%
Heavily Contested = 10%

That's why many people complained that "being open" didn't really matter much, and they were right. Post-patch, that same shooter is now:
Wide open = 60%
Fully Contested = 20%
Heavily Contested = 10%

So over the course of the game, assuming both teams shoot an even spread of open and contested jumpers, you should've seen zero change to your end of game shot percentages when comparing pre and post patch. But if you trend hard one way or the other (all your shots are open or all your shots are contested), you would've seen a very noticeable change. Now I also fixed the "glitched" shots being unable to get perfect release, so that will factor in as well.

But if both teams play solid defense, I can believe that a player might go 80% from the field from time to time, but it definitely shouldn't be the norm. Also, in case you're wondering, I didn't touch 3PT percentages at all, only layup, close and mid-range values.

From the feedback, it seems like head to head play is much closer to what I'm looking for in terms of making the game more fun and users are rewarded for getting high quality looks. But if you guys are torching the AI offline, you might have to do some slider tweaking for this year and get in Da Czar and OG's ears to ensure the AI puts up a better fight in 2K16.

So what Mike is saying is that this is all Leftos' fault?

Guys can you tell me if anyone of you have/had a game audio stuttering, or stuttering at all before this patch? And is it better after this update or not? Tnx. :(

Just played my first game with patch #4 last night, Orl (me) @ Chi (AI). I was knocking down the 3's like nobody's business with Victor Oladipo, Tobias Harris, and Maurice Harkless. These guys are not exactly knock-down shooters. I even nailed 2/each with Vucevic and Payton. End of regulation was Orl-162, Chi-98. 3-pointers are overpowered now.

As per Beluba's post on OS, tweaking the sliders may be in order if you're lighting up the AI too much.

it seems the focus of the patch was for online play and they forgot the offline for whatever judging from the quote that was posted.

i haven't tested the new patch yet but when i do, i hate that i have to tweaked the sliders since i'm perfectly fine with the simulation sliders and since i have a current association going, i may have no choice.

When it plays smooth it feels great...however that seems rare. The stuttering is even worse now and comes with times of complete gameplay slowdown.

You certainly can tell the difference in open three point percentage. It's probably a little too high without slider tweaks, but as that's always been the weakest part of my game, I must admit that I don't mind too much.

"Tuned shot percentages for a more obvious distinction between open and covered shots. Slight increase to contact dunk frequency for high level dunkers." basically means "Turned the game into a bad copy of NBA Jam because the majority of our players are too dumb to play sim basketball. Additional feauture: The game is now feels like it was released in 2003 by EA".

Does Steam apply these patches automatically? How do I tell if the game is patched? Is there a version number somewhere?

Thanks.

does anyone know if they ever fixed the animation that you get stuck in when the player brings the ball up court (skipping along directing teammate traffic)? they added it in one of the patches, and people including myself complained about the bad job they did.

I believe there might have been a Windows 10 hotfix at some point.
