NBA 2K15 News Post

While the face-scanning tech can work really really well (see our thread for some great examples of it working right) it also can create beings of a sort that will give you nightmares for weeks.

We're talking Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Left For Dead type of grotesque here. A team full of these 'things' is probably a viral video waiting to happen.

To get a proper Facescan, you have to carefully follow the on-screen instructions while ensuring you have proper lighting. A lack of either can result in some really messed up situations.

I hope you sleep well tonight.

Update: Some are asking how to scan your face properly. Here's a great video from ipodkingcarter showing you how to properly scan your face.

What I'm wondering is, out of all those horrible scans, how many of them actually followed the instructions entirely and used the best lighting possible.

I think following instructions is "kind of hard" for a lot of people ...

2k ain't tell me I needed a sheet and two lamps for this. That ain't in the instructions

If you think this is hard, you must be having a hard life. I tired it two times and had great success on both of them, just wanted to make sure I get the best possible is the only reason why I tried a second time.

This happened to me all last night and i scanned myself 5x!!! Takes 3-5mins per scan..purely frustrating!
# 14 braves_94 @ 10/07/14 03:18 PM
Cenobites! Who gave 2k the puzzle box?
# 15 IUxHOOSIERS @ 10/07/14 03:58 PM
I've followed the instructions from Ronnie and for some reason I still can't get the window color to turn to green.

This is stupid. 2K obviously knew this was not as easy as advertised. I have scanned my face for longer than I have played the damn game. These face scans aren't even close.
# 17 Shadojoker @ 10/07/14 05:23 PM
Tried again for an hour straight. .false advertising on 2k's part..i want my money back for buying this damn PS4 camera.. (but I'll try for 5-10x before i do). People on these boards trolling saying people dont follow directions obviously don't have the game.

I can't get it to go green either on the XB1
# 19 Shadojoker @ 10/07/14 06:08 PM

Looks like we arent alone..its an epidemic. Google nba2k15 face scan issues. .whew makes me feel better
# 20 Rell7thirty @ 10/07/14 06:13 PM
Lol I don't know how people's scans are coming out so horror film-ish. Mine came out over exposed, but at least it looks like me.

Neogaf has a thread dedicated to this.. It's hilarious
