Quote1) Any plans to release tutorials, hex codes, ASM, etc. to the public when you're done? I'd love to learn about how to do this sort of hack, especially coming off of my SNES version hack.
Quote2) Where are you pulling custom player name clips from? The PS3/Wii game? Ideas on how/where to pull sound clips for the newer players?
Quote3) What are your thoughts on fitting in the expansion teams? Any way to get all 30 selectable?
Quote4) Keeping any old school ballers as secret players? Rodman? Putting in any old schoolers that didn't make the original PS game? Jordan? Barkley? Shaq?
Quote5) As you're running through code and portraits/head shots, what are your thoughts on feasibility of roster swaps and updates?
Quote6) What emulators are currently successfully running the hack?
Quote7) Looking for any beta testers at some point?
QuoteHi eskayelle, big fan of your work. I remember reading articles on NBA Jam 2K17 years ago before I knew anything about rom hacking and it really inspired me.
QuoteI saved a clip from a youtube video and then I used phonicmind to remove the background music to isolate the announcer's vocals.
QuoteThere's also a hidden character named "Kim Gordan" that I may use to create the "Jordan" sound byte. I want to try to keep it as authentic sounding as possible.
QuoteI was also thinking about consolidating teams, like Team Los Angeles for Clippers and Lakers or Team New York for Nets and Knicks but I imagine that'll be unsettling to some people lol I'll most likely end up omitting Grizzlies and Pelicans.
QuoteAbsolutely. I definitely want to add Jordan, Shaq, Barkley, Rodman, Magic, Dr J, Kobe, as either Expanded Rosters or Hidden players. I might work on Jordan next.
QuoteSo far I've been using ePSXe 170, no$psx, pSX v1.13, and most of the footage you see from the trailer is from the Playstation Classic mini which uses PCSX ReARMed.
Quote So for Lebron I swapped his body with Derrick Coleman while retaining LeBron's head since they have similar body type and color. I might continue to use this technique for other players since there's a lot of donor players I can use.
QuoteAppreciate the support! To be clear (I'm big on giving credit), Millertime2325 did the original 2K17 hack. I just took it and added a bunch of improvements to see if I could create something that could support annual roster updates more easily. But the Double Z Mod and 2K20 were much more me... with a big lot of help from phonymike and others!
QuoteAnother way to do it is to take the Wii game and a Dolphin emulator, run the sound from the emulator through your mic, and record in Soundforge or Audacity. That's how my buddy grabbed the "Thunder" and "Wizards" clips, so I could then convert them to SNES-friendly format (8000 Hz, Mono) and then to BRR.
QuoteWas DeAndre Jordan playing back when EA's Jam came out? That might save you some trouble.
QuoteI never got there, but one of my ideas was to make the Rookies team the second worst team in the game (so the Suns based on 2018-19 standings), and the All-Stars the champs (Raptors). This way, you have to beat 27 teams before unlocking the top seed, and you give up that second worst team in the process. Of course, that only covers 29 teams. The worst team would be pitched from the game. Sorry, Knicks.If you're not doing annual updates, this may not be too painful. But it's no solution if you're updating each year, which is why I didn't implement it in my version. I didn't want to discourage others from building on my hack by forcing them to have to redo teams each year.I did also think of the combination teams; in the thread on romhacks we'd like to see, I had written about combining teams that are in the same market to accommodate for the 30, but you'd have to combine the Clippers and Lakers, and then combine the Nets and Knicks. I then thought about splitting the logos in half for a nice mashup logo. Didn't know if too many folks would be accepting of it though.
QuoteMan, the PSX has so many additional slots for players, that you have options! Here's a question for you: Given the amount of time it takes to create characters, and given how sports games go "stale" into the season (trades, free agency, injuries), would you be more inclined to do a 2K20 hack and feel pressured to finish it, or take your time and do some kind of "Legends" hack with the best players/HOFers per team? Could be fun, and less time sensitive. Or... perhaps do 2K20 with a Legends follow-up?
QuoteYou almost have me interested in buying a PS Mini!
QuoteSeems like it worked out pretty well and is likely a good time-saver to keep you moving through some of the tedious parts of the hack. Any shortcut that gets you a nice result and a reasonably polished game is a good shortcut!
QuoteThere's actually a 2 minute FMV ending for the PSX version that I plan on replacing with my own fan made highlights video. I can add music and all that. One thing I am concerned about is how are people supposed to be able to access the ending video again once they've already beaten it?
QuoteI'm undecided on whether to have the expanded rosters activated at default or not. On one hand I want the players to be given a special treat for beating the game where they unlock Legends such as Michael Jordan, kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Yao Ming. But then again I also feel like it's better to just activate that from the beginning since they wont have to input initials and I don't really anticipate many people playing the game to the very end.
QuoteHave you ever stumbled on a NBA Jam T.E Snes Longplay video on youtube? I actually recorded that back in 2013. I can't remember my login for that account but I remember checking in a few years ago and was surprised that it amassed so many views. One thing I like about the SNES version is that it appears to have different sprites for tall and short players. This might be cool if someone want to create an entirely different model for like female characters. The PSX version is locked to one body sprite where they scale it. So they essentially use the same body graphic so if I want to use female characters i would either have to just use a girl's head on a man body, or i can make all the characters female lol I don't have any experience with modding the SNES version but I am interested in creating something for it too
Quote from: ponlork on August 18, 2019, 05:11:10 AMI've been working on a NBA Jam T.E.mod for the Playstation 1. My ultimate goal is to replace the entire roster with current up to date NBA Players. So far I've inserted LeBron James into the game and that includes his player Portrait, custom head sprites, and custom audio for the announcer to call his name. Here's a trailer I made recently: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3ylg7C-xv0I also replaced the ref with Sonya Blade and I added new FMV Highlights during the halftime and post game show. Pretty much all the hacks I would like to execute is figured out it just takes a great deal of time to edit photos and to align their heads, and then do quality control. But I'm determined.Another cool idea I have is to do a full mod where I replace all the sprites and animation with custom art. I was imagining how cool it'll be if we can have like Anime girl character sprites and a Beach like atmosphere. Something like that would require a ton of work but I like to dream.Or how about a NBA Jam Celebrity Edition where it features everyone from the world of music, politics, hollywood and entertainment? We can have Crips and Bloods on one side, Democrats and Republicans on another, team Naruto over here, or whatever the hell goes lol that might be kinda cool
Quote from: pleasejust on January 25, 2020, 10:33:51 AMIMO the best NBA Jam game is the arcade version of NBA Maximum Hangtime. I wish someone would hack that with modern players and teams. That would be increbible.Anyways, as for this hack. Is there any way to make the names of the teams smaller to fit more per column/row?
Quote from: Dzumeister on November 28, 2020, 12:23:28 PMthe new stuff looks great! If you can pull off Waifu Jam, it'd be incredible
Quote from: orlandojumpoff on December 05, 2020, 01:06:25 AMOh man, would be awesome to have updated rosters on the ps1 version... if you ever get around to doing the Magic please add Jonathan Isaac (defensive beast) and Markelle Fultz.
QuoteIt's actually very easy. NBA Jam is one of the few PS1 titles that uses Redbook CD audio. That means you can put the disc in a CD player and it'll play the music tracks. So basically all you really need to do is convert a audio track to a 16bit 44.1KHz wav format like how we convert MP3s back in the day to burn on CD, then replace it with the music track in the game. I'll demonstrate it later.The game has 3 tracks during gameplay and it selects one randomly between quarters. They're about 6 minutes long so you can have full music tracks playing. Then there's other tracks you can mod too like the intro music, character select screen, half time and post game music.
QuoteThere's a ton of hidden characters I can include too so if anybody got any requests let me know.
QuoteI may use a color that's already in the game as I'm not much of a pixel artist. There is a gray and purple-ish color that I might use. I know there's a Blue Hulk too
QuoteHonestly I haven't been following the NBA much in years so I don't really know the big 3 for each team so I can use all the help I can get in that department.
Quote from: eskayelle on December 06, 2020, 12:02:05 PMThat's awesome. I'd personally love to see John Tesh's Roundball Rock fall somewhere into the game.

QuoteYou could always grab Benny's palette and go Red Hulk.
QuoteI'd suggest hitting up the folks on the NLSC Forum. Andrew and [Q] are fans of NBA Jam and have been a sounding board for the SNES hacks since Millertime's NBA Jam 2K17. Tell 'em I sent ya.
