*Note please move to the bottom of the page to see where most of the credit goes. I did the portraits and only tweaked some players. Cyberfaces were done by the community which had been mass-released by Champione - they deserve a tremendous amount of credit as well.

This is the "Ultimate Base Roster" file for NBA2K12. I’ve named it this because of all the other extras included in just ONE roster file and all functions work (association, season, etc) without overwriting any data.


After you click the "DOWNLOAD" button located below you will be brought to a webpage with 4 separate download parts. If this is the first time seeing the "4 Part" downloads on this page then you're going to want to download Part 1 and Part 2 first. If you have already previously downloaded Part 1 and Part 2 once already for the Ultimate Base Roster or one of the other Season Mods you won't have to download them again. If you're not sure if you have downloaded them previously then play it safe and download/install Part 1 and Part 2. Remember, after you download those parts ONE time you never have to download them again.

You will, however need to download Part 3 and Part 4 NO MATTER what.

After downloading Part 3 make sure to read the "README.PDF" file located in the zip file.

You will need to place all of the contents from Part 3 into your Main NBA2K Folder.
C:Program Files (x86)2K SportsNBA 2K12 (NOT THE SAVES FOLDER)

After downloading Part 4 make sure to read the "README.PDF" file located in the zip file.

You will need to place all of the contents from Part 4 into your SAVES Folder.

• Real Arena Names: Real arena names for every arena that was given a fake name now has accurate names. For example "Seattle Arena" is now named "KeyArena" etc. I did this for my created retro teams, the retro teams that came with the game, AND the real NBA teams (ex: Madison Square Garden now shows up instead of “Knicks Arena”).

Portrait Adds/Edits

Over 1,000+ portraits were added to NBA2K12's Portrait.iff files. No portraits were removed or edited. Every single portrait that came with the game is still included. Huge credits go out to Wim.vl for the mastermind behind being able to add all these new portraits. Nuhmete and I went through and found 275+ portraits to add to Wim.vl's already great portrait file. Keep in mind the names below are only retro player / legend player portraits that were added. The file ALSO includes ALL of the rookie portraits from this past season in neutral white jerseys.

Player Edits

Fake Bench Player Edits:
As most of you know NBA2K included some "fake" players on the ends of the bench for some of the retro teams. I went ahead and edited those players with the correct players. For each fake bench player I used to determine which player(s) were left off the team. For each fake bench player I did the following:

• Changed names to accurate ones
• Changed numbers to accurate ones
• Changed positions to accurate ones
• Changed heights/weight to accurate ones
• Added portraits for those I could

IMPORTANT NOTE #1: I highly recommend going to the rotations menu and reviewing the All-Time Franchise Team rotations before playing. Since all teams have 15-20 players it's important that you go and select which players you want on your 12 man team that will be eligible to play in your game. Remember some teams have as many as 8 IR spots because I gave these teams extended rosters.

IMPORTANT NOTE #2: You may notice that the Retro Team "OVERALLS" that show up at the Quick Play Screen are out of whack - just ignore it - it doesn't affect game play at all.

IMPORTANT NOTE #3: Because I've mirrored some players onto the All-Franchise Teams there is one negative consequence. When you go into the Rotations Menu I HIGHLY recommend that you don't scroll through the Specific Year Retro Teams as you will be constantly asked to "update this team's rotation minutes". The game play still works perfectly and substitutions are made correctly, however because some players are mirrored onto the All-Franchise teams the game gets confused and will constantly ask you to change their minute rotations. So a word of advice: Only scroll through the Current NBA Teams and/or the All-Time Franchise Teams when entering the rotation menu.

IMPORTANT NOTE #4: Please be aware that in order to create space within the roster file I disabled the 14, 29 and 58 game association/season modes... so if you want to play association or season with this particular roster you'll have to select an 82 game schedule... if you want to play one of the shorter schedules you can still load any other roster... by downloading this file it doesn't mean you won't have access to the condensed schedules in other rosters... it just means you won't be able to get those shorter schedules to work with the Ultimate Base Roster.... most people select 82 games anyway, so it shouldn't be a big deal - but I thought you should be aware.

FAQ Guide:

Q: Will installing the Ultimate Base Roster (UBR) overwrite anything? 
A: No, UBR does not overwrite any game content. You’re asked to overwrite files when installing because the mod utilizes some hidden content in the game and has to tweak those files to make them work properly. 

Q: Are the regular teams updated? 
A: UBR is always currently updated - check at the top of this post to see what the exact date is. 

Q: Why do I see headless players with white arms/white jerseys? 
A: This is caused by installing the files to the wrong folder. Extract all the files into your 2K12 folder except the .ROS file, which should go to your saves folder. 

Q: Why do some retro teams at the Quick Play screen have REALLY low overall ratings?
A: Just ignore the overall ratings at the Quick Play screen. All the right players are still on the team with correct ratings. This doesn’t affect game play. 

Q: Why is it when I scroll into the rotation menu the retro team minutes are scrambled. 
A: The reason for this is because some players are mirrored onto the All-Time Teams. Just don’t scroll into the rotation menus for any year-specific team. You can change your lineup if you would like at the quick start menu or in the game making substitutions. This allows you to scroll into the All-Time Teams to make changes without the annoying pop up always coming up. Players still start the game correctly and substitutions are minimally affected.
