Details on first major patch for NBA 2K18

Posted September 26th, 2017 at 10:15 am

The patch for NBA 2K18 that has just gone live on PlayStation 4 will be out on Xbox One today, while both PC and Nintendo Switch are being framed only as arriving “soon.” This update to 2K18 doesn’t address the major issue of MyPlayers that have vanished or change the way in which VC affects the game given the heavy backlash the game is receiving, but it does take care of one of the biggest in-game problems that had been widely reported.

It was discovered that the framerate would plummet following the first timeout making the game practically unplayable in online games. That now should be fixed. Responding to another common complaint, attribute ratings have been made visible when purchasing upgrades in MyCareer. Other areas affected include MyLeague/MyGM and the Playground which are joined by Nintendo Switch-specific technical fixes. 

♦Fixed a case where framerate would drop for remainder of the game following a called timeout.

♦Users are now able to view the individual attributes and their values when upgrading their players in MyCAREER.

♦Users will no longer display negative badge progress following an exceptional performance in MyCAREER. For those currently experiencing this, continue playing and your tally will be incremented towards your next bonus.

♦Users will no longer lose their facial hair when re-scanning their face.

♦Gray indicators have been added underneath the feet of your teammates in the Playground; it is now much quicker and easier to discern your teammates from your opponents.

♦Improved framerate in the court area of the Playground when games are being played on most/all of the courts.

♦Addressed a case where Draft-and-Stash players in MyLEAGUE/MyGM would be signed to a $0 contract, while simultaneously being duplicated in the upcoming rookie draft (new save required).

♦Generated prospects in future seasons of MyLEAGUE/MyGM will now always have heights appropriate for their position (new save required).

♦Free agents 32 years or older will no longer pass up big money offers to sign for the MLE in MyGM/MyLEAGUE.

♦Global settings/options will no longer reset to default after entering a MyTEAM game.

♦Fixed hang that could occur when user scrolled down list of available shirts in T-Shirt Kiosk.

♦Addressed hang occurring by bringing up squad menu in completely full Neighborhood.

♦Fixed soft hang in Live Practice where ball would not get picked up when using ball machine.

♦Fixed an issue where the camera would always point to the middle of the court if the user had the Auto Flip option enabled while in the broadcast camera(s).

♦(Switch) Improved framerate/audio syncing during tunnel/locker room scenes in MyCAREER.

♦(Switch) Fixed an issue that sometimes prevented Local Play from commencing when there were four participants.
