Anyway, the reason I'm bumping this is because I actually figured out how to edit and re-insert audio. It was a bit of a pain to figure out, but now that I've got it, it's actually really easy (if not a little time-consuming) to pull off. If anyone wants a how-to, let me know and I can write something up.

I know a lot of people have had questions about changing display names -- that's my next (and final) task before I could officially begin work on a mod (I wouldn't want to change everything BUT display names, that would bother me to no end).

What I've discovered so far is that the .btp file you used to be able to hex edit to change display names doesn't work anymore after the 4.0 update. During that update, they added some new players (which became HUGELY crucial to audio modding, so you win some you lose some) AND added some .vars files. I think those files, which seem to act as some sort of player/team database and reference sheet, are the key to unlocking display names.

I'll keep people updated as I continue to make progress.

So much can be done! Even the loading screens and app icon during installation can be edited with apk editor pro.

My NCAA mod is a work in progress so far I have edited two teams, the menu, and two players.

I used HEAT as DUKE
And WARRIORS as OKLAHOMA.

I also edited the scoreboard.

There will be a video of the game on my youtube channel JamCentral✓ I have only 10 subs so please help out.

CURRY as YOUNG and
MCHALE as BAGLEY

I also updated the icon for the app.

If anyone knows how to edit music please reply.

Any ideas for the roster um doing one current player and one player who has been to the schook and is now in the NBA.

I'll give the basic overview, but feel free to respond if anything is unclear.

There are 4 major files you'll need to update in order to change the display name: 0, g, i & the Players Console csv. Here's some detail on what's necessary for each:
  1. NBAJAM_Players_Console.csv :
    1. First, pick a player to update who has the same number of letters in their last name as what you're going to be replacing it with. For instance, I could replace Ricky Rubio with Karl-Anthony Towns, but NOT Jimmy Butler.
    2. Secondly, update AttribKey to be firstname_lastname (karl_towns) and ReflectionKey to firstname_lastname_r (karl_towns_r).
    3. Finally, change the LastName column (TOWNS). [Note, you can change other columns, but it's unnecessary for name-changing specifically]
  2. g :
    1. Update the .pvr texture filenames to match the firstname_lastname used in the step above, plus the home or away designation.
    2. Example: ricky_rubio_home.pvr will become karl_towns_home.pvr (repeat for the away skin as well)
  3. i :
    1. Note the ID # of the player you're replacing (which can be found in the players csv file in column A
    2. Change the .png filename to [ID#]_LastName. In this case, 229_RUBIO.png becomes 229_TOWNS.png
  4. 0
    1. Open this file with a Hex Editor of your choice.
    2. Ctrl-F or scroll to find the .png file from step 3 of the player you're replacing
    3. OVERWRITE the filename (or just the last name, since that's all that should be different) with your update (again, this will be 229_TOWNS.png). Don't edit anything else!
    4. Save and exit.

Now you can import and replace these files in your res folder location. If you did everything right, you should see the updated name displayed.

Two things to note:
  • In this case, Ricky Rubio didn't have an audio files, so we didn't have to do anything with the AudioManager.vars file. I'm certain we probably would have to going forward, but that seems a bit trickier. That's what I'm going to test next.
  • You can add your own players and assign them to unused IDs, but it's a couple of extra steps. Once I do that successfully, I can answer questions/update this how-to with the details.

Let me know if you have any questions. Also, again, big ups to miky!


This is great progress guys, it's been a while but last I messed around with the files I was experimenting with changing the names with no luck. Seems like the 0 file was the last piece I didnt have luck hex editing. So no changes to the var files are needed? And you should write up the methods to replace the audio and add new player id #'s. Pretty excited to try some of this out.

For the Demo release here are the four teams Mo Bamba + Kevin Durant on Texas and Jaylen Hands + Russell Westbrook on UCLA along with Duke and Oklahoma which were shown in the earlier post. There will be more teams any suggestions I know the draft is coming soon so I this is kind of a bad time to release a mod like this.

I have figured out a method to use PVRTexTool on mobile devices. You need to download ExaGear app and have alot of storage. Download PVRTexToolGUI.exe and move it into the ExaGear folder it will take a long time to load because it is extracting. For me I haven't gotten past that part because I don't have enough storage so when it loads it's says not enough storage on disk to extract so if you have good storage try this method and tell me your outcome. There is also another method that worked for me using an app called PVRViewer.exe with ExaGear it doesn't open NBA Jams PVR files but it does compress to pvr the pvr files don't work though I think it might be because encoding options which the application doesn't have.

PVRViewer File - https://mega.nz/#!MAsEhRDS!-yo9g8sKgXld ... nRH7h2mLkM

PvrTexTool File -https://mega.nz/#!IddkHI5K!3j33N0THq7D-ZWPpxOnk5roqYXMsGCKJI2rAr2L9Oig
