NBA 2K10 PC Online Patch Update (Joystiq)

Joystiq has a small update on the NBA 2K10 PC online patch.

Quote:
"As one tipster explains to Joystiq: "Online support has been basically non-existent, despite it being clearly advertised by 2K. To be clear, when I say 'non-existent,' I mean 'non-existent.' This isn't an issue of slightly laggy gameplay, or anything like that. The lobbies in the game are completely non-functional, and it doesn't even seem possible to connect to other players."

When contacted, 2K Sports told Joystiq that a patch is "currently being worked on, and in the testing phase. It will be released as soon as it is ready." That's probably of little consolation to office chair athletes left playing a pick-up game by themselves, as this patch has apparently been in the works for months."

Snow is up north, so we got lucky this time around.

Re: NBA 2K10 PC Online Patch Update (Joystiq)

Just glad to see that a mainstream media outlet has gotten involved. The official 2k forums somehow keep deleting all the threads that complain about the lack of a patch for the PC version. I'm just hoping that the patch has the same framerate improvements as the console version got. For the amount of RAM and processing power that I have available to run the game, the graphical performance can only be described as "substandard." I run PES2010 at all settings maxed out and run at a buttery smooth 60FPS. I can't begin to come close to that with NBA2k10. That combined with the various AI issues and online functionality problems, makes it really evident that patch support is something that needs to be supplied, even if the game does retail for only 20 bucks.

Thanks to Joystik for taking up the banner of many a frustrated gamer! To the 2k staff, please stop making this a secondary priority and giving this a skeleton crew. Make this a main priority, you chose to put a release out for PC, please support it with the proper level of customer support. There are many besides just myself who are looking at this scenario as to whether we really want to buy future titles, such as MLB2k10, on the PC platform. Will it be supported with the same lack of urgency as NBA2k? The ball is in your court....

Indeed...it's now going on 5 months. I'm a patient guy but this is ridiculous!

And now they're pushing mlb 2k10. I think I'm going to wait until all the patches/reviews to come out for that before I pull the trigger. Not going to get burned twice!

yeah...2k9 ran smoothly with my old 4870 card...now that i have 5870 2k10 should run up to 100+ fps...instead im getting a meager 45-50 range....2k10 is badly optimized right now, im hoping the patch will fix that along with the sound issues...

I just had to reformat. Something was running in the background eating up my RAM and had my CPU just going nuts. So I went back to square one with drivers and the whole nine. I'm using about 15% of my 8 gig of RAM and have 512 of DDR3 on my 4670. My quad is running at 1 to 4% at idle. I'm able to run 1920x1080 at right around 58-60 FPS with Low Stadium, Med textures and Med crowd and have High players. Now compared with PES, I can max everything out. And run Fraps in the background with it still giving me 30 FPS solid. If I turn anything up on NBA it's a stutter-fest. But I think that I can live with what I've got for now, it is running butter smooth, for now....

I think half of the performance issues with this game is no DirectX 10 support. You have to install 9.0c, even if you have 10, huh? Why not write support for the newest and best coding? One of the biggest things that DX10 offered was better graphics support. And I'm also not seeing where there's strong Multi-Core support. The .config code is based off of single-core architecture. Multi-threading is here to stay. This game is just a really basic port. I'm starting to see that they (2k) arent' really trying to excel on the PC platform. That's where they could really make their games shine. But sadly, no. Probably just considered a secondary market. Really starting to worry me about what type of quality to expect out of MLB. If it doesn't deliver a kick-butt graphics experience, I'm just not buying. 360 version is a jag-fest and a half on my 42"
