NBA 2K15 News Post


A user on Steam, by the name of lima, has posted this tutorial on how to get around the shoe glitch in NBA 2K15.

Quote:
1. Go to options and create a new 2k generic shoe, it doesn't matter what it looks like, just save it as something you can remember like MYSHOE HOME or MYSHOE AWAY, it will work with both home and away. If you already have some 2k generics that you like, than just save them under a new name.

2. Go to myplayer store in options (NOT in mycareer mode) and choose the 2k shoes you created in step 1. It will say they cost 1000 VC and you have to have at least that amount on your account but it won't actually charge you anything, so just buy them and make sure they are equipped. (If you equip some shoes you created and you actually like them, you can keep them if you equip them here, they won't change back to the default generics like in mycareer store)

3. Go back to edit the 2k shoes you created in step 1 and DELETE them. Just make sure again that you know their exact name.

4. Go to create a brand shoe that you like (nike, jordan, adidas, I tried with nike so far), edit the colours and all and when you are done, save this shoe with the same name you saved the generics in step 1 and deleted in step 3.

5. That's it, don't touch anything else, your guy will have the shoe created in step 4 equipped because it has the same name. Now if you want to change them, just delete them and create another shoe with the same name (just repeat step 4, don't repeat all other steps)

If you would rather watch a video explaining the process, check out this video from Nykefaller.

If you aren't interested in the workaround, 2K is offering refunds. It doesn't look like a patch is coming to fix the issue, but Ronnie did leave the door open.

Thanks and all, but it only works for custom shoes you made. It defeats the purpose of being called a work around if you can't wear Nike, Jordan, Adidas already in the game.

I hope this gets patched in the upcoming weeks. It been a month of complaint and still no patch.

The steps to reproduce are below, please try on your own, I'm not at home right now, but I did try and it worked. I think this should work even if you don't have a shoe endorsment, because we are exploiting a glitch, there is no cheating involved or messing with any files. So just try it if you want.

1. Go to options and create a new 2k generic shoe, it doesn't matter what it looks like, just save it as something you can remember like MYSHOE HOME or MYSHOE AWAY, it will work with both home and away. If you already have some 2k generics that you like, than just save them under a new name.

2. Go to myplayer store in options (NOT in mycareer mode) and choose the 2k shoes you created in step 1. It will say they cost 1000 VC and you have to have at least that amount on your account but it won't actually charge you anything, so just buy them and make sure they are equipped. (If you equip some shoes you created and you actually like them, you can keep them if you equip them here, they won't change back to the default generics like in mycareer store)

3. Go back to edit the 2k shoes you created in step 1 and DELETE them. Just make sure again that you know their exact name.

4. Go to create a brand shoe that you like (nike, jordan, adidas, I tried with nike so far), edit the colours and all and when you are done, save this shoe with the same name you saved the generics in step 1 and deleted in step 3.

5. That's it, don't touch anything else, your guy will have the shoe created in step 4 equipped because it has the same name. Now if you want to change them, just delete them and create another shoe with the same name (just repeat step 4, don't repeat all other steps)
Your sir, I would consider kissing, no homo.

No more ugly bull**** I created with my shoe deal.

Yep it works, wearing custom Jordans in mycareer 1st season.
 
# 4 xItzxWeezie @ 01/30/15 01:57 PM
This is genius! Now I can finally have my shoe deal!!
 
# 5 bastos80 @ 01/30/15 02:14 PM
Wait so you can actually wear shoes of a brand you didn't sign with ?
 
# 6 jeremyp1223 @ 01/30/15 02:20 PM
Thank you. Ive been waiting forever to where custom shoes.
 
# 7 tbadwan @ 01/30/15 02:24 PM
yep, just edit the shoe you want with whatever colors you want and make sure to name it the same as the generic shoe you equipped in step 1!

Try it again man...read what I posted...it's not just shoes you designed...it's brand name shoes, not just 2k shoes

My bad, guess this **** does work. Sucks all my players are gonna have the same shoe on. But it does not take that long to change so it not that bad.

Can't wait to try this. Thanks for sharing.
 
# 15 Crea8vity @ 01/30/15 09:36 PM
How do you wear one shoe for away and the other at home, under the same shoe name? Do you have to create a separate 2k generic shoe?
