FAQ Guide:


#1: Q: Will installing the Ultimate Base Roster (UBR) overwrite any current NBA content?
A: No, UBR does not overwrite any current NBA game content. You’re asked to overwrite files when installing because the mod utilizes some hidden content in the game and has to tweak those files to make them work properly or to add onto files to make them larger.

#13. Q: Does this roster have all the new rookie cyberfaces?
A: Yes ALL of the rookies are in the roster, ALL of the rookies have cyberfaces, and ALL of the rookies have portraits. If they are now showing up for you it is because you haven't downloaded and installed ALL of the download parts. You must have all of the download parts installed (yes all of them). Remember, once you download and install Parts 1-8 one time you never have to download them again. Updates are made to Part 9 and Part 10 for each new version. This may also be caused by installing the files to the wrong folder. Extract all the files into your 2Kfolder except the .ROS file, which should go to your saves folder.   If this answer did not help click here: http://bit.ly/1uweoBP

#15. Q: Why are some players headless players with white arms/no jerseys?
A: SEE QUESTION/ANSWER #4. This is caused by not downloading and installing ALL of the download parts. You must have all of the download parts installed (yes all of them).

#16. Q: Paul George and LeBron James don't have cyberfaces!
A: This means you have not downloaded and installed ALL of the download parts like you're supposed to. You NEED to have all the download parts installed (1-10) in order for all cyberfaces to appear. Once you download Parts 1-8 one time then you never need to download them again. When updates are made they are always made to Parts 9 and 10. Parts 9 and 10 must be re-downloaded and installed for each new update.

#17. Q:In the 2014 mod LeBron James has a mask how can I change this?!

A: During the 2014 season LeBron James did wear a mask for some of the season. One of the important things we try to do in the UBR Mod Pack is to include a variety of cyberfaces of year-specific players. If you don't want this cyberface you can always replace it. His PNG number is png8588.iff in the 2014 mod. His default cyberface number is png1013.iff To change his CF delete png8588.iff from your main 2K folder, then search for png1013.iff in your main folder, copy/paste it and rename it png8588.iff.

A: Remember, everytime there is a NEW update you MUST re-download Part 6. This means you have not downloaded and installed ALL of the download parts like you're supposed to. You NEED to have all the download parts installed (1-10) in order for all cyberfaces to appear. Once you download Parts 1-8 one time then you never need to download them again. When updates are made they are always made to Parts 9 and 10. Parts 9 and 10 must be re-downloaded and installed for each new update.

#19. Q: When I play an association why do the standings say teams are "0-0" even though I'm playing games?

A: This ONLY happens in the Ultimate Base Roster.ros after season 1. If you want to play multiple seasons of association mode all you need to do is use the UBR Association.ros file.  If this answer did not help click here: http://bit.ly/1uweoBP
A2: In NBA2K12 this is not an issue.

#20. Q: Why can't I trade players in the Ultimate Base Roster!
A: You can if you follow this tutorial (viewtopic.php?f=154&t=94692).  If this answer did not help click here: http://bit.ly/1uweoBP

#21. Q: Why do some retro teams at the Quick Play screen have REALLY low overall ratings?

A: Just ignore the overall ratings at the Quick Play screen. All the right players are still on the team with correct ratings. This doesn’t affect game play. This is due to the minute rotations being adjusted to accommodate the All-Time Teams. If you really want the quick play screen ratings to be shown correctly you must edit minute rotations in the teams rotations tab.  If this answer did not help click here: http://bit.ly/1uweoBP

#22. Q: Why is it when I scroll into the rotation menu the retro team minutes are scrambled?
A: The reason for this is because some players are mirrored onto the All-Time Teams. Just don’t scroll into the rotation menus for any year-specific team. You can change your lineup if you would like at the quick start menu or in the game making substitutions. This allows you to scroll into the All-Time Teams to make changes without the annoying pop up always coming up. Players still start the game correctly and substitutions are minimally affected.  If this answer did not help click here: http://bit.ly/1uweoBP

#23. Q: Why is it when I try to view player cards the game crashes?

A: This is not an issue in 2K14.  If this answer did not help click here: http://bit.ly/1uweoBP
A2: Viewing player cards using the Original/Regular Ultimate Base Roster will crash to the desktop. There is no fix for this. However if you start an association OR load the Association UBR player cards will work just fine.

#24. Q: I'm trying to customize my association season length to something other than 82 games with the Ultimate Base Roster and it keeps crashing.
A: For NBA2K14 this is not an issue.  If this answer did not help click here: http://bit.ly/1uweoBP
A2: For NBA2K12 only 82 game season length is supported when using the Ultimate Base Roster, however, If you use the UBR Association.ROS file it will work just fine.

#25. Q: Why doesn't MyPlayer/MyCareer mode work well?

A: MyPlayer/MyCareer does not work well for all modded rosters. I've been told that this tutorial (viewtopic.php?f=154&t=95555) will help you used modded rosters in MyCareer Mode.   If this answer did not help click here: http://bit.ly/1uweoBP.  IN V37 of the Ultimate Base Roster MyCareer mode was fixed for the current roster.  V37 and beyond should have correctly working MyCareer mode.
A2: For NBA2K12, If you use the UBR Association.ROS file it will work just fine.

#26. Q: Why doesn't MyPlayer/MyCareer crashes after first game, during subbing, etc

A: MyPlayer/MyCareer does not work well for all modded rosters. I've been told that this tutorial (viewtopic.php?f=154&t=95555) will help you used modded rosters in MyCareer Mode. If this answer did not help click here: http://bit.ly/1uweoBP  IN V37 of the Ultimate Base Roster MyCareer mode was fixed for the current roster.  V37 and beyond should have correctly working MyCareer mode.

#27. Q: What is John Doe's cyberface number?
A: I will never tell you what a player's cyberface number is because it's SO easy to find it yourself. All you need to do is download and install the free reditor (Red MC) here: viewtopic.php?f=153&t=93066.  If this answer did not help click here: http://bit.ly/1uweoBP
