It's time to set everything in stone. :)
1) The release is set to Friday.
2) Prices and Discounts are published. You can find them in the Purchasing Instruction: click (please, ignore the missing videos - they will be added tomorrow or on Firday). Guru for a single platform (PC or XBox 360) + all the interfaces is $36, which is slightly more than last year. And additional $17.5 to get Guru for the second platform. Minus 20% off the first Guru and MyFriend, if you purchased Guru last year.

Be ready for the upcoming release! ;)

Best wishes,

Hello, basketball fans!

A short message about the current development status.
Release is day-to-day now. Need slightly more hours to finish everything, but i have to spend my time on studies for the next couple of days (unfortunately;;; next year studies won't be a problem anymore).
Please, understand me correctly. Everything is nearly ready, but i want to triple-check, that everything works as expected, before finally making an installer and releasing. Plus, i still need to do video tutorials, and a fresh head is required for that.

Hey, guys!

So, i promised to set an approximate public release date. :)
Since there was an awful glitch persisting from Beta to Beta, which corrupted Bank Of Names under several circumstances (thanks to JaoSming for spotting the glitch), it took several (rather many) extra hours to properly fix it. That's why we're delaying a bit.

Anyway, the Tutorials are nearly done (thanks to M@dDog for putting the General Tutorials together and hokupguy for finding XBox 360 disc contents) and the Ordering system is nearly finished.
The untouched points are the tool's icon :) , installer, about box, website and self-made video tutorials (Jao might be a God of Editing, but that is me, who knows every tool's feature and wants to share the info with you ;) ).
I'll do my best to finish everything asap, but the most probable release date is this weekend (not set in stone, though, so it might happen a couple of days later).

About purchasing. This year the total prices will be slightly higher, than previous year, but since you won't need to purchase the whole Developer's license in case you only wish to change jersey colors, i think, this is reasonable.
I mean, this year you can select only those tabs for purchasing, which you will really use (each tab is ~$1-3). But if you wish to edit every aspect of the game and purchase the Guru - the price is still affordable. :)
Please, also note, that RED Modding Center is a completely new tool from REDitor II, so old Interfaces licenses will not work in the new program. Also, MyFriend Panel is now not a Global license, but is activated separately for each separate game type (PC and XBox versions of the same game are the same game type).
If you have purchased an NBA 2K12 license earlier, you will get a somewhat discount. Purchasing PC and XBox 360 Tables together will also provide you with a discount. Not sure about Interfaces discounts yet.
(anyway, exact prices and discounts are not set in stone yet, so i don't publish them)
Transaction options are still the same: PayPal (you can use you relative's or friend's account to make a payment, if you don't have your own), Western Union & MoneyGram (much higher fees, than PayPal, so PayPal is recommended), Yandex.Money & WebMoney (only available for Russia and several other former-USSR countries).

Will keep you updated, guys, with more news about the upcoming release.

Best wishes,

Wow! The previous message was published in mid-Feb...

Sorry for not keeping you updated. My last college year is really that busy, and i've been prefering to spend all the computer-dedicated free time working on the Editor.

But there is definitely good news for all of us.
Well, let's start:
  1. The new project's name is RED MC. Here is how it goes ))) : RED MC <- RED Modding Center <- REDitor <- Roster Editor. Why RED Modding Center? Because i have big plans for the project, which will be brought to life, once i graduate from college. Basically, it will be an even more advanced roster editor + an incredible IFF-files editor. But that's for the future.
  2. The project is currently in the late Beta-stage. We have a stable version, so it's only left to make the purchasing & auto-update systems, finish the documentation and do all pre-release routines (make a web-site, an icon, an installer, etc.)
  3. I'll set and tell the approximate release date this week (the approximation will include a range of 2-4 days).
Here is a screenshot of what you will get, guys ;) :

The other hand news:
Clone & Delete won't be possible in the initial release, along with Roster Exchanger. These and several other advanced editing features will be added to the second release.


You can watch JaoSming working with one of the early Betas live here (click).
He will probably make another session with the latest Beta some time soon. Maybe i will join him as well. So, if you have any Qs, you'll be able to ask him (or maybe even me directly) during the next session.


PS: Three more of my favourite Ukrainian & USSR(Russian) rock songs (listen to, making breaks between the songs, to get the best enjoyment ;) ):

Hello, everybody!

It's nearly 1am here, so i will be short, as tomorrow i need to attend my college classes. :)

First of all, guys, thank you for your support and your patience!

This year's new file format and some new ideas about the roster-editing process made me start making a completely new tool from scratch. Many great REDitor II architectual ideas are used, some new ones are added, but the sources are nearly all new. This is one of the reasons for the slower-than-previous-years development process. The other one is some my IRL problems, which shouldn't worry you much, i suppose. They are mostly connected with the fact, i'm on my senior year to get the Bachelor's degree in IT.

I get lots of messages about the potential release date. We have some approximate Beta version plans, but currently i don't want to tell any public release date. Last months showed that extreme busy-ness can get out of nothing, breaking many plans. I don't like to make empty promises, so let's wait until the tool is in its Beta stage before seting any exact dates.
If you read this Blog, then you can be sure, you'll be the first to know the date once it is set. So, do not worry. ;)

There is some good news as well, of course. :)
Here is the very first screen of the new Editor. It's an early Pre-Alpha, so the final version will certainly look more neat and will be much more functional. :) I'm working on this nearly every day. :) Hope, your editing experience expectations will be satisfied. :)

Best wishes,

Hello, NBA fans!

I haven't updated the Blog for quite a while due to some "real-life business". Nevertheless, i have finished decoding all those hundreds of parameters, you will be able to edit soon. ;)
Now getting to the actual editor-building.

The list of the new decoded parameters follows:

Playbooks tab:

Player Stats tab:

Team Stats tab:

Name Datas tab:

Jerseys tab (thanks to JaoSming for his assistance):

Headshapes tab:

Rotations (Special Teams data) tab:

Game Records tab:

Awards tab:

Hall Of Fame tab:

Some side notes:

1) There are 2 Playbooks tabs this year. The purpose of the second one hasn't been defined yet. It is supposedly used for on-line gaming.

2) YearReplacer of Player Stats tab is the field, we lacked last year to make historical players have their real, not modern, years in stats. So, this is another issue, which will be possible to handle this year.

3) There were several other tabs found, which are not mentioned above. Their purpose is unknown; or it was detected, that they are deprecated. Means, they won't be editable via the Editor, though will be handled on inner levels for compatibility. There is a possibility though, some of them are used in MyCareer mode. If it is true, the tabs will become editable.

As i'm starting to make the actual Editor, i'd like to tell a couple of words about its future GUI. The goal is to implement all the functions, REDitor II has, plus add several improvements to MyFriend Interfaces. A more convinient filtering system and some Help system are also things to be introduced.

The inner side of the Editor will be completely different, however. I have big plans for the project, so it should be as flexible for improvements as possible. New features, compared to REDitor II, will be coming along after the initial release.

If you have some suggestions about the potential editable fields or about possible GUI improvements, please, post them in the RED Editor 2K13 Official Development Thread (click)


And a couple of songs, you might like. :) They are not gangsta rap at all, but nice Ukrainian romantic songs. :)
