For years, I've been trying to make the NBA 2K series play a believable game of basketball through the adjustments of sliders and rosters. It wasn't until the 2K series went to what is now the current gen did I feel that slider adjustments were enough. Over the past few iterations I stuck with just adjusting the NBA 2K slider sets with one additional goal in mind. Animation Flow or the flow of animations. Game speed player speed has always been an ongoing thing I've seen in sports games (especially recently) that I feel has not been paid attention to. Yes, my fellow sports game enthusiasts have shared the same interest whether it was from their own editing or from the casual user of those edits who showed the same relentless want to have something look and play...more real.

This years game has its shares of issues. Every year it does. It's impossible to make everyone happy. Some want features, some want easier access to things and some just want to be able to fly down the court and dunk online. I just want to provide a slider set that is for those die hard basketball fans that watch a game on tv and then want to play a game of NBA 2K Basketball because it's just more of what they love...Basketball.

Below are this years settings for the Tomba 2k19 Slider set.
I am happy to report that from my editing that this slider set addresses:
1)Foot Planting in a major way
2)Player speeds for every position player on court
3)Fixes weird animation suggestions by the game engine by forcing more realistic animation branching.
4)Adjusts pass speed to be more realistic especially in broadcast cam view
5)Creates space so that when the ai runs plays it looks more calculated.
6)CPU will go after the open shot more
7)player dribbling and defending of the dribble has better feel and weight when you control it
8)Star players play more like them selves Examples include things such as Gobert blocking/rebounding etc.
9)Better fouling by AI due to adjustments throughout the slider set

This slider set has actual settings that are not approached in a conventional way. You will see things have a very high setting for user and then it's CPU equivalent be much lower. You will also see some settings that are made to play off each other but technically shouldn't. I hope that you try the slider set without judging the actuals first. In every edit I try to achieve a sense of realism that can only be achieved by making myself think outside of the box. I usually scale back everything then add, i look for one universal working thing and build.
