Rosters & Gameplay Sliders
Kuroko V Slam Dunk ft. Dear Boys 's Kuroko No Basuke currently features 15 regular Kuroko No Basuke high school basketball teams, 15 regular Slam Dunk high school basketballteams, 15 special teams and Dear Boys/Hoop Days' Mizuho High. Three rosters are available. Season 1, Season 2, and Season 3 rosters with their respective attributes, tendencies, and accessories from each season are available. For example, Kuroko will not have any decent shooting ratings and will not have any shooting tendencies in the Season 1 roster unlike in Seasons 2 and 3 where he has his own shot called the "Phantom Shot". Ratings for players also develop throughout the season rosters. It will be seen clearly in the rosters how each player progressed in the anime when they developed new moves. Signature Skills are made accurate for every player depending on their performance in the anime's season. Animations also change per season, with Kuroko developing his new shooting form in Season 2. Special cases are for Kise, who had different Dunk Package animations as well as Signature Skills in Season 3, as well as the other players who were able to enter the Zone. Players who were in the Zone/Kise's Perfect Copy, etc. have different cyberface and portraits depending on their respective season. Kiyoshi is also injured in the Season 1 roster, thus is unavailable to play in Quick Game, but will be available in other game modes. Midorima is given the highest arcing jump shot animation available in NBA 2K14. Player updates from the manga for Slam Dunk are incorporated into the third roster. Fictional players were created in place of the teams without official players (Senshinkan, Meisei, etc.) as well as for bench warmers for the more known teams. All 3 versions of the roster have the special teams and Act 1 versions of Mizuho High from Dear BOys.
The gameplay is also exclusively modified to fit the style and gameplay of all anime (Kuroko No Basuke, Slam Dunk & Dear Boys). Animations for players are also tailored specifically to what they did in the anime, such as dunks and shooting forms. Fictional bench players are created for teams to reach the minimum requirement of 12 players per team, as well as the creation of two fictional coaches (one head coach and one assistant coach) for teams that do not have their coach shown in the anime. Unknown or nameless players are given generic names such as Senshinkan PG, Meiko PF, etc. with plans to give them fictional Japanese names in future updates. However, this is still to be discussed between the team members. Teams without a specific team logo are given their default Kuroko No Basuke or Slam Dunk logo (depending on the anime they come from) to save space on the logos files currently used by all mods from the Medevenx series. The team names are composed of their English name and their Japanese name with the character "ō" replaced with the "ó" character as the "ō" does not exist in NBA 2K14's english file.

Courts and Jerseys
All of the court floor mods and jerseys were made by me. I decided to create accurate jerseys, as well as warmup jackets for all of the teams, while creating fictional warmup jackets for those teams that were not shown wearing them in the anime. All designs of the jerseys were made accurate and corresponds to normal versions of NBA 2K14 WITHOUT the Tight Jersey mod, as Kuroko No Basuke's players and teams are not shown to be wearing any form of tight jerseys. Jersey numbers are now also accurate and correctly appear as it did in the anime. Conceptual jerseys were created in lieu of never seen jerseys such as Rakuzan High's dark jersey or Tōō Academy's light jersey. As of now, only the Winter Cup floor was created as all 15 Kuroko No Basuke teams will be using the Winter Cup floor. Only floors have been developed for this mod as the team has no members with experience in editing stadiums.
KoroX (or korox3323) and Seushiro (or Seushir0 are the only cyberface modders for this project. They are responsible for every cyberface in the mod, with varying cyberfaces such as different hair styles or appearances of players depending on the season roster you are using. There is a progression from the retro Teiko cyberfaces to their current look in the Kuroko No Basuke teams.
Presentation Files & Jukebox
Warstomp32 is in charge of presentation files that will make Kuroko V Slam Dunk ft. Dear Boys a full conversion mod like FIBA 2K14 and PBA 2K14. zackiritoryan has made a jukebox for Kuroko V Slam Dunk ft. Dear Boys that will allow us to proceed with the full conversion process.
The Divisions were constructed like this instead of via prefecture because of the lack of teams in other districts (numerous teams reside in Tokyo). Thus, I selected the divisions based on which teams they faced in the anime. Rakuzan and Shūtoku faced each other, Kaijō and Tōō faced each other, while Yōsen only faced Seirin in the anime. The other teams are also based on which teams belong to where I believe they do belong. For example, Seihō and Senshinkan are in the same division as Shūtoku as the "Three Kings of Tokyo". Kirisaki Daīchi, Nakamiya South and Shinkyō were only seen facing Seirin. Fukuda Sōgō is in the same division Kaijō belongs to as they faced each other in Season 3.
