    Could be worse I guess. Have a week to get the kinks out.

    Got it working. I still had the app installed from Live 16 and so it updated it rather than installing it. I needed to delete and reinstall it.

    This app should be standard in every EA Sports game. It only makes sense. Sadly this will never happen.

    It definitely should. Imagine being able to use this in Madden this year on Frostbite. One could dream lol.
    I didn't play Live 16. But man is this app quick, easy, and efficient. Literally, the first time I did it and I was satisfied. I did it a second time just because my eyes weren't open. It looks exactly like me. With 2k first few years, it tooks HOURS just to get a decent face model. Even this one looks better than this year on 2k. I love that it shows the preview model on the app itself, so that you basically know how it looks in the game.
    This definitely has me hyped for Demo next week.
    keep getting "Render Failed; rescan" -- same issue as the Live 16 companion app. Have tried like 10 times -- outdoors, cloudy weather so no shadows from the sun, plain background behind me. Samsung Galaxy S6
    Make sure your face fills the oval. Have to put phone close and don't make any big expressions. Good lighting and slow turn. Might take a few tries but the results are really good.
    Too bad they only show face this year and not full body once done. It's creepy good.

    Does anybody know if these face scans work in live 16?
    Sent from my BLN-L24 using Tapatalk

    It's still uploading my previous scan. Not sure if you've never done it before though.
    I got everything to scan right, but is there no way to edit hair or eye color on the app? I'm just a bald dude with brown eyes, but I really have green eyes and still some hair left.
    Maybe you have to do that in the actual game?

    I never used 16, but this is my face to a tee :appl:

    Pretty good. The big issue i had with 16's scans -- actually, with all faces in Live 16 including NBA players -- were all of the players' eyes were lighter than they should have been. (It really gave players a dead-eyed look.) It's a good sign that your eyes show as dark, if that is their actual tone.

    Yeah. All hair edits are in the game.

    Finally got some scans to work. Did it in my bathroom, which has pretty bright lighting. Like Nemesis Enforcer said, you have to fill the oval completely with your face.
    Also, no, you can't use the scans in NBA Live 16. And you can't change your hair, either.
    But you can change your skin tone from the app, which is a welcome feature that 16 didn't have.
    I like this app better then the 2K one, got a great scan on this one in 3 go's on the 2K app from last year i never managed to get a good scan, tried it like 50 times spread over the months since it got released always a fail so i hope 2K will make a better facescan app this year.

    Someone needs to share the apk, because my phone is more than compatible. Had to do the same thing with 16 version.
    Don't know why Google Play says it's not!

    Edit - Wrong file
    Rename the XAPK to zip and extract it. You may have to move the files other than the apk manually like the app in 2016.
    It isn't working on my phone, HTC m8, getting a a invalid_request error and "display is invalid"

    Thanks about to try now
    Edit didn't work... display is invalid error message, even though old version use to work.

    I think that link may have been the old app. I got it for an Android emulator and the startup and login screen are different. It has Kendrick Lamar's song DNA playing with a gameplay loop. I'm trying to rip the apk from it, but I'm having trouble.
    Edit - Got it working and the app works. Here's a link.

    I keep getting a render error and it's bothering me. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

    I had to do it 3 times but it eventually worked.
    Also in case anyone runs into it. My mouth wasn't lining up. I have a beard and the app couldn't figure it out until I trimmed my moustache a bit and made sure the top of my lips were visible.
    My scan is done. Seemed harder to do somewhat well compared to 16.
    It looks to me that the face scan on live 16 and 2k17 seemed more life like.
    Live 18's face scan looks more "cartoony" or "video gamey"

    Once you view it in the actual game (not the app), it looks much better and real.

    I was getting the same thing. Try to align yourself with the camera, not the screen, and do your best not to move your phone or your head, and keep your eyes pointed towards the camera. I actually think I got it working by moving my head a little faster when turning. So, try something slightly different from what you are doing. Maybe tilt your head forward or back or align your head differently.
    Haven't tried this one yet but for live 16 the app captured my likeness to a T. with the 2k apps though, every year I end up looking like some creature from the depths of humanity.
    Just tried mine again and it looks just like me. I think I'm going with a Patrick Ewing or a "fatter" body type if they let me. I don't wanna be buff like Dwight Howard.

    Took a few tries, my eyes aren't quite right but it's not bad. Way better than I could ever get 2K to be.

    I look angry haha anxious to see the final product when I can add some much needed hair on top my head & fill in the patches in my facial hair (although unfortunately accurate).

    Wow the skin texture on this is fantastic!

    I presume it's only a template and adjustable? My neck is not Pro football size. But the app shows like I'm all neck. Huge huge neck muscles.

    That's just a preset look. You can change body size and other things via the creation screen. I thought the same thing with Live 16. lol
    This app has been buggy for me on iOS. For a while, trying to rescan seemed to cause the app to crash quite a bit. After fixing that and trying to do more scans, the app crashed saving a preview of one of mine and now the app itself is stuck on the main screen with the cyber head doing a continuous loading icon.
    Might have to try and reinstall it. I like the app itself since the process is a bit quicker than 2K in general but wish I could get it stabilized. The issue with my scans has been that my eyes seem all over the place so trying to focus my attention on the camera itself once it starts. Another small irk is that they don't really give you the best preview before it heads into the finding your face mode, it would be nice if we could see how we look in the oval and get set before being thrown into it.
    Edit: I suppose it's their servers since after reinstalling it's telling me they're in high demand right now.

    I like It looks pretty spot on.
    Have you ever watched "Last Chance U" on Netflix? Man you look like one of the coaches on that show.

    I still can't get my face scanned. I'll keep trying though....

    Natural sunlight is the best for way to do the scan, just like 2k and live 16. Outside of that it's pretty straightforward.

    Was having issues not moving the phone, had to prop it up to get a good scan but now servers don’t work so can’t see it in game

    For anyone having trouble scanning their face i found out the issue. The APP only wants your forehead , eyes, nose and lips in the picture so you have to get close to the camera. Your entire face doesnt have to fit inside the outline
    Anybody else have this problem. I have a face scan saved with my natural color. But when i select my face scan in the nba live demo the skin color below my neck is a different skin shade. There is no option to change just the skin color only to match my head and neck. Its only when you choose a generic face that the body skin color changes but then your stuck with a generic face.

    That's just the way the game is designed. You select the skin tone in the companion app right after you scan your face and that's it. You can't change it once you select from their little drop down list so if it doesn't look right, better luck with your next scan unfortunately.
    I've scanned but it's just been loading forever and I can't see the scan. What am I doing wrong?
    edit: never mind it's working now it just took a while
    I did the face scan on the phone app and then I downloaded the demo. Now how do I get my face to show up in the demo? I went to the one and it's saying game face hd but when I click it, nothing happens. It just says download the app?

    I'm having the same problem.
    I thought it was because the EA account I signed in to wasn't the same as my PS account. So I changed the PS account to same email as EA, but nothing changed. But when I uninstalled the account from my phone, I got a notification on the demo saying I disconnected from the companion app
    I cannot get my body color to match my face. I've gone all the way down to 10 on the app and it only changes my face color.

    Does anyone know what I did wrong or what I need to do to fix it? Are there two color options and I just missed it?
    Anyone having trouble with your face being distorted in-game?
    I have no trouble completing a scan and the final render in the app always looks fine, but when I load it up in-game it's got my eyes mushed together super close making the whole face look off. It's never the same either...it ranges from crazy close (like the tiny gap of my nose bridge the only thing separating them) to just less dramatic, but still too close in general.
    The two scans I got without that happening had one eye popped out of the lid part way and the other I apparently did something with my lips in one since it looked like I was blowing a kiss...lol
    Any tips (android app, if that makes a difference)?
