Compatibility of Med's NBA Roster, FIBA 2K14 & PBA 2K14

Ever wondered exactly how Med's NBA Roster, FIBA 2K14, PBA 2K14 and the upcoming Kuroko V Slam Dunk are all compatible? In this post, we discuss how compatible all of the mods really are with each other, and the significance of having compatible mods.

Rosters, Cyberfaces, Courts & Jerseys

All of the cyberfaces, courts, and jerseys for the NBA roster, FIBA 2K14 and PBA 2K14 are compatible with each other, meaning it will not replace any of the current NBA files. This is achieved through the different assigning of file names for the rosters for each respective mod. If any replacements are necessary, it means the new file is an improved quality file that should overwrite your current file. All mods share one Appdata folder and one Saves folder despite how many folder for NBA 2K14 you create.


Med's NBA Roster, FIBA 2K14, and PBA 2K14 all have their own logo file. But you can load each roster and have their team logos show up properly despite the modded logos you've downloaded. So what's the point in having different Logos files? The logos files for each mod only differs in the league logo (shown in Association & Roster Management's Free Agents), All-Star, Rookie Showcase, Playoffs & Finals logos. If you are trying to save your disk space and decide not to copy your NBA 2K14 folder, it is recommended that you download one logos file from any of the mods from the series that you would be happy with as your primary logo file.


Both PBA 2K14 & FIBA 2K14 have their own scoreboards, but I don't mod scoreboards or scoreboard logos for NBA rosters. They are all compatible if you use the default 2K scoreboard, however are no longer compatible once you start using the mod-specific scoreboards. That means the PBA scoreboard will not work with NBA & FIBA rosters, and the FIBA scoreboard will not work with NBA & PBA rosters. The scoreboards are accompanied by a english.iff text file that corrects the fonts used for the scoreboards. These text files contain the text used for PBA 2K14 & FIBA 2K14 that completely modifies all in-game text, converting it into PBA or FIBA-related text respectively. This text file is important to backup if you only use NBA rosters.

Presentation (Optional) Files

FIBA 2K14 & PBA 2K14 both have their own optional files which include many presentation files such as referee attire, headlines for Association, basketballs, overlays, and event logos. PBA 2K14 even has its own jukebox! These are the files that improve your presentation heavily, completely converting your game into your preferred mod. These are OPTIONAL and are not required to properly run the mods, hence, you must backup your original files.


The NBA roster, FIBA 2K14, PBA 2K14 and the upcoming Kuroko V Slam Dunk all use the Universal Portrait Project for its portrait file. Thus, the Universal Portrait Project is a separate mod, with its own updates. Luckily, all of the portraits are compatible with each other because of the portrait adding method used to prevent the replacement of existing portraits.

Significance of Compatibility

Compatibility saves space and allows you keep your mods in the same NBA 2K14 folder without having to create multiple copies of the folder. However, if you have the luxury of disk space and wish to play the mods in its fully converted form, it is recommended for you to copy your 2K14 folder and completely modify for your authentic PBA 2K14 or FIBA 2K14 experience. If you're saving space and just want to be able to load all of the rosters in one NBA 2K14 game, there's no need for you to download the optional files and it is recommended that you use the default NBA 2K scoreboard to ensure compatibility of all mods. A separate software is also available for you to download in case you want to keep everything in a single folder but wish to be able to switch between NBA, PBA & FIBA mods on the fly. The software is called JGSME, it allows you to mix & match your mods without having to keep backups of your files manually. Visit the JGSME thread located in the link below to download the software. Video tutorials and instructions are also included in the NLSC thread.
