How did you discover the NLSC?

Postby Andrew on Tue Mar 15, 2016 11:19 pm

It's been a while since we've had this topic, and while we still have some long-time veterans around, we've also had a fair amount of turnover in our userbase over the past five years or so. As such, it's about time to ask the question again.

How did you discover the NLSC? What brought you here in the first place? I'm always interested to find out, because although there's overlap between the basketball game sections and the NBA/off-topic sections, we've also got kind of a split demographic: some who are mostly here for the video game content, and others who don't really seem to play the games anymore, but have stuck around to talk about the NBA and off-topic stuff.

For the record, I discovered the NLSC back in August of 1997. That's so long ago, I didn't even discover it via Google; my search engine of choice at the time was Altavista, which I haven't visited in years, and looking it up it seems it was shut down in 2013. I was around in the original Forum when I was running the NBA Live Domain, ended up taking the NLSC job in August of 2001, and I've been around ever since.

Pretty sure I Googled 'NBA Live 06', and this was (one of?) the first hit(s). I had never PC gamed in my life, and thought it was so cool how people were changing the way the game looked, etc. I was always a roster nut, but at the time would make manual edits on my console, and hated how limiting everything was. It was shortly thereafter that I was in Best Buy purchasing a video card, and running my first PC game, and shortly after that, diving into modding. I was a senior in college at the time, so it was a huge financial strain buying that damn video card. :lol:

Andrew, I'm surprised you weren't using AskJeeves :cool:

My discover is similar to bigh0rt

I started to watch NBA in 2005, and I had NBA Live 06 in PC. I was a big fan of late 90's uniforms. I looked for the patches of these nice uniforms, then I found NLSC. I remember BAYAG's Classic Teams update, the Euroleague mod and a 2000-01 mod that its links were broken. That's the time when I met Rapidshare.de too. People put some nice works on nbalive.org then too, and I remember that I compiled a few retro jerseys. I even remember creating them on my own, with MS Paint.

A few years later, I met Photoshop and it went on since 2009-2010

even though it says that I joined in 2013, I've actually been lurking these forums for quite some time before I decided to create my own account. Back in '06 when my uncle gave me a copy of the Live '06 for console but my younger brother decided it would be okay to spill water on it to "wash" it so we decided to buy a PC instead and a pc version of Live '06.

While my uncle was busy installing it, I searched for Live 06 and there I saw NLSC and another mod site. Clicked NLSC then voila! I was too shy to post then since I only knew French and I saw you were all speaking English. Only went to the site to download mods ever since.

You know, I don't think I've ever asked Jeeves anything. Though if I did have to ask something, it'd probably be "Why do you make a habit of installing your bloatware/adware on people's computers, since rebranding to Ask.com?" :lol:

I've been lurking the site for a while now. I wanna say maybe when I got Live 03 (Kidd Cover) on PC so 2002? It wasn't until the past year or so that I became more active in the forums.

Lol I love hearing French Canadians talk.

Yeah Pretty sure it was back in 99 or so I was finally getting more time on the internet (desktop computer with DSL internet was in my mom's room, some nights she'd go sleep over at her bf's house) I'm not sure what I was looking for, probably art updates for Live 98, and my god when I saw all the stuff you could change in the game to keep it updated, I was hooked.

Ha yeah it was starting to become a regularity over dial up by then, but unfortunately it still tied up the phone line so my mom would know if I was online if she'd try to call and check on me at night.

I believe dial-up may have finally died out over here in the last few years. Those who can't get ADSL through the phone line or a fixed wireless solution usually have a 4G connection.

I think I discovered it via a google search. I became more aware and interested in PC mods after I acquired a budget laptop that could run most of my low-end games (e.g. NBA Live 08), and watching videos on youtube I probably ran across the NLSC a few times.

I remember going to college in 2002 and moving from dial-up to their T3 connections and it being a whole new world. 1 minute to download a song instead of 30 minutes (at best, and often over an hour). Now I get annoyed if something doesn't download in 3 seconds. How far we've come.

For me growing up spending my teenage years in the 90's while playing for 3 basketball teams at the time of 95/96 I hated any downtime till I was introduced to nba live 95 on my Nintendo which for a few years was just a game I played with my mates but by 2001 when I got my ps2 I was hooked on the series and really got into the editing side, roster at first which lead to wanting to change the way the game played.

I hate using the word "Lurked" but I lurked for about a year before joining this site that I found through Ask Jeeves back in 2002 when I started to edit gameplay by editing EVERY PLAYER in the game ie to slow the game down I would take 20 edit points off every player in the game, shooting % too high? Do the same again.

So after getting good results and seeing on this great site others like myself talking about this I decided to join the conversation and that was 13 years a go and is still one of the first sites I check daily.

Would also like to give a shoutout to Andrew and the team who make this magic happen.

Thank you.

Tell me about it. Even about five years ago, I'd balk at larger downloads, and favoured physical media over Steam and digital distribution, because it'd take ages to come through. These days, even though connection speeds in Australia are still behind a lot of developed countries, I don't think twice about anything over a gig.

Found out about this site when I got a laptop back in 2002 and installed NBA Live on it. I was mostly checking the other site (...completely forgot what it was called) where patchers were sharing their work for this game, but I started seeing better things being done on NLSC, and after a while I joined mainly to share some tattoo patches I was making. Only did that for a couple of years I think, it was just too time consuming.
