NBA 2K16 News Post


A new patch for the PC version of NBA 2K16 is available now. Check out the details below.

GENERAL
  • Support added for custom keyboard configurations.
  • Optimization improvements that increase performance across all configurations.
  • Addressed an issue where some users would notice commentary cutting out during gameplay.
  • Resolved frame rate stuttering at start of games/between quarters on moderate to high-end systems.
  • Addressed an issue where some users would see a black screen in the Edit Arena and Edit Uniform menus when ‘Special Effects’ was turned off.
  • New Video Settings option ‘Media People Detail Level’ added; reducing this will help performance on low-end and mid-range graphics cards.
  • Corrected missing/incorrect player icons when using a non-Xbox 360 controller.
  • Fixed a rare hang that could occur when attempting to fast-forward 2KTV.
  • Fixed a rare driver crash on DirectX 10.0 and DirectX 10.1 graphics cards.
  • Help text added to Video Settings menu.
  • Additional detail setting now available for Shader Detail in the Video Settings menu.
  • Fixed super sampling not working when Letterbox (formerly called Aspect Ratio Correction) was disabled.
  • The following Video Settings options should now provide the expected results when modified: Color Correction, Depth of Field, Screen Space Ambient Occlusion, Bloom, and Volumetric Effects.
  • Resolved a rare case where the game would hang when entering/exiting the Tattoo editor when customizing the tattoos on your MyPLAYER.
  • Addressed an issue on the main menu where the title would freeze for a period of time before proceeding to the selected action (e.g. loading a MyCAREER save).
  • Players will no longer slide/skate when pressing the block button during an inbound state. It was funny while it lasted.
  • Tuned crowd excitement and intensity on made buzzer beaters.
  • Resolved a case where certain players (e.g. Kristaps Porzingis) would have their hairstyle change slightly when zooming in the camera very close in replay.
MyPARK/2K PRO-AM
  • Pro-Am Team Play has been added to the game! You can now play as a full team in your custom-built arenas.
  • Addressed a number of matchmaking issues that inhibited users from playing in Pro-Am Walk-On games.
  • Fixed an issue where your player would sometimes appear with the incorrect height (if you had more than one MyCAREER save file) when entering MyPARK/Pro-Am from within MyCAREER.
  • Fixed a rare case where the ball would get stuck in the High Roller courts, thus preventing a game from concluding.
  • Improved the animation of the skateboard in MyPARK. If you don’t have this, get it. You can move between courts faster than those that are on-foot!
  • 2K Beats will now continue to play after finishing a game in MyPARK.
MyCAREER/MyCOURT
  • Fixed an issue where some users were unable to join their friends’ MyCOURTs.
  • Fixed an issue where the host user was unable to send MyCOURT invites after leaving MyPARK/Pro-Am with a squad.
  • Addressed a number of issues with Accolades not unlocking at the appropriate time within MyCAREER.
  • Pressing the back button will no longer cause the game to hang from the MyCAREER NEXT menu after being eliminated from the playoffs.
MyGM/MyLEAGUE
  • Numerous tuning and code enhancements to improve simulated player stats.
  • Playoff games (within a series) can no longer be played out of order in MyLEAGUE Online.
  • Found and fixed a case where visiting certain submenus with no head coach would cause the game to hang.
  • Fans of relocated/rebranded teams will no longer hold up signs referencing the previous identity of the team.
  • Fixed a rare hang that could occur when the ticker referenced a previous game result where all of the players on the team have since been traded.
  • Selecting to load a custom draft class will no longer cause a game hang in the MyGM offseason if you had previously been fired during that same offseason.
NOTE: All patch fixes will work in your existing game mode saves.

This sounds great! I was hoping they'd add an option to disable the media people, looked funny having them stand in front of an empty crowd anyway. My 3 big problems with the PC port were performance (especially online), input lag, and games constantly crashing/not counting. Sounds like performance is being fixed with this patch, only 2 points left and I can love this game as much as I want to.

Right now testing patch in play now (offline) and commentary is gone after few minutes of gameplay. Other than that game works really smooth so far.
 
# 9 Kully @ 11/02/15 02:35 PM
Nice, thanks for the patch. Can't wait to play.
 
# 10 UGA14 @ 11/02/15 02:36 PM
I haven't lost my commentary yet, but my passing icons are completely gone.
 
# 11 23 @ 11/02/15 02:39 PM
Audio stuttering alive and well. It sucks so bad. Commentary and audio in this game is just messed up
 
# 12 dwayne12345 @ 11/02/15 02:46 PM
I just ran a Play Now game with my settings turned all the way up to high on broadcast cam. NO STUTTER WHATSEVER.

Full Screen everything on high, texture detail on medium. special fx on.

The game runs so smooth.

COMPUTER PC SPECS:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2.0GB
RAM 12.0 GB
CPU clock: 3.05GHz
CPU cores: 4 cores, 8 Threads
Intel Core i7 CPU 950 @ 3.07GHz
Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit OS

And their went my commentary. So I have no passing icons and my commentary still goes out. Sorry to say but nothing changed for me.
 
# 14 Vroman @ 11/02/15 02:58 PM
Besides commentary cut off, also sounds of possession's jingles/defense chants gone as well. Overall it feels like there is no attendance at all in court.

Oh well I hope performance is fixed for me too as I have a R9 280x and it's ridiculous I can't play the game.

Same card as me. The play is fine until the audio stuttering kicks in which is frequently

That's strange. I've experienced audio cut out a few times but not recently. What mode do you guys see it in?
 
# 18 Kully @ 11/02/15 03:23 PM
Getting a FPS increase (running an absolute smooth 60 fps everywhere), no stutter at all during cutscenes/halftime score check. No issues with commentary, very solid right now.

I have lost the directional passing icons as someone else has stated.

My specs:

i7 2600K @4.4 ghz
16 GB RAM
EVGA GTX 980Ti
Windows 10

I have no more stuttering at all during lineups and quarter highlights. For those of you that don't have icons I think it is isolated to the XboxOne controller. If I swap out and use my old 360 controller the icons are present. Not ideal but it is a workaround for people with both until they fix it. I have 100% faith they will get it worked out since when it happened before they fixed it fairly quickly with a PC only patch.
 
# 20 joosegoose @ 11/02/15 03:32 PM
Definitely a performance increase, I'm no longer limited to minimum now. Still playing around with settings to find the right combination for me, hopefully I can get my 2k15 settings.

For some reason, if I change FAST_TEXTURE_FORMAT_CONVERSION from 0 to 1 in the config, the game sets it back to 0 whenever I launch it. Anyone else experience the same, know why it is, or if I should even bother with it?

Edit: Also appears the ability to change hair shaders was removed...using medium shaders means low quality hair it seems.
