Basketball Game

I love OOTP and am anxious for its football counterpart. I'm also interested in an NBA game (for Mac) but have never found anything remotely like OOTP for basketball.

APOLOGIES if this is the wrong forum....

Most likely should belong in general discussion. With that said I’d love an OOTP a basketball game.

I know this is old, but i'd pay $100 for a good OOTP Basketball Game. I've never found a basketball sim that was particularly good.

Have you checked out Wolverine Studios? They are working on Pro Basketball 20 as we speak but Pro Basketball 19 is a very good game and the engine has come a long way.

Fast Break Pro Basketball 3 from Grey Dog is good. Text-based, realistic stats. While the game is stable in my experience, it is cumbersome to create foreign leagues and the NBA rosters have not been updated in years. You can play fictional, however. Questions do not get answered for months, if ever.

But they are often running sales and I would recommend it, along with their Fast Break College Basketball. You can import players from the college game into the NBA game.

I agree that wolverine studios basketball game is fun. The only issue I have, not on Wolverine Studios, is the lack of mod support. There really doesn't seem to be many modders.

There is an NBA mod but as I’m working on a draft class for our online league I realized the ratings for the NBA mod are way out of whack. Ton of work to get every player playing to their true to life game and then the draft classes won’t exactly match the ratings of the NBA mod either.

Wolverine's basketball game is pretty good but agree with Rizzo about making mods. I made a European League mod for it a few years back and tried making draft classes but the ratings were pretty bad to work with and it became a bit of a chore.

For my online league I and two other people make custom draft classes every season. The work it takes to create a realistic class once every 6 months is outrageous so to do that for the entire league would be a task I wouldn’t wish on anyone lol.

I cannot recommend this game.

Poor developer interaction. Never any updates. Game is, what, five years old and the developer has made maybe one update to the game?

Promised changes that were sorely needed and they never came. Simply just vanished and never shows up.

It's a dead series. A dead game. Not worth anyone's time.

Exactly. Sad because the game had tons of potential. It was working right just missed a lot of the bells and whistles.
