NBA 2K16 PC Patch 2 Arrives: Here's What it Fixes


NBA 2K16 PC Patch 2

2K has already delivered on their promise to release the second NBA 2K16 update this week. Patch #2 was released for the PC version of the game through Steam this morning, focusing mainly on general stability issues.

  • Support added for custom keyboard configurations. 
  • Optimization improvements that increase performance across all configurations. 
  • Addressed an issue where some users would notice commentary cutting out during gameplay. 
  • Resolved frame rate stuttering at start of games/between quarters on moderate to high-end systems. 
  • Addressed an issue where some users would see a black screen in the Edit Arena and Edit Uniform menus when ‘Special Effects’ was turned off. 
  • New Video Settings option ‘Media People Detail Level’ added; reducing this will help performance on low-end and mid-range graphics cards. 
  • Corrected missing/incorrect player icons when using a non-Xbox 360 controller. 
  • Fixed a rare hang that could occur when attempting to fast-forward 2KTV. 
  • Fixed a rare driver crash on DirectX 10.0 and DirectX 10.1 graphics cards. 
  • Help text added to Video Settings menu. 
  • Additional detail setting now available for Shader Detail in the Video Settings menu. 
  • Fixed super sampling not working when Letterbox (formerly called Aspect Ratio Correction) was disabled. 
  • The following Video Settings options should now provide the expected results when modified: Color Correction, Depth of Field, Screen Space Ambient Occlusion, Bloom, and Volumetric Effects. 
  • Resolved a rare case where the game would hang when entering/exiting the Tattoo editor when customizing the tattoos on your MyPLAYER. 
  • Addressed an issue on the main menu where the title would freeze for a period of time before proceeding to the selected action (e.g. loading a MyCAREER save). 
  • Players will no longer slide/skate when pressing the block button during an inbound state. It was funny while it lasted. 
  • Tuned crowd excitement and intensity on made buzzer beaters. 
  • Resolved a case where certain players (e.g. Kristaps Porzingis) would have their hairstyle change slightly when zooming in the camera very close in replay. 

  • Pro-Am Team Play has been added to the game! You can now play as a full team in your custom-built arenas. 
  • Addressed a number of matchmaking issues that inhibited users from playing in Pro-Am Walk-On games. 
  • Fixed an issue where your player would sometimes appear with the incorrect height (if you had more than one MyCAREER save file) when entering MyPARK/Pro-Am from within MyCAREER. 
  • Fixed a rare case where the ball would get stuck in the High Roller courts, thus preventing a game from concluding. 
  • Improved the animation of the skateboard in MyPARK. If you don’t have this, get it. You can move between courts faster than those that are on-foot! 
  • 2K Beats will now continue to play after finishing a game in MyPARK. 

  • Fixed an issue where some users were unable to join their friends’ MyCOURTs. 
  • Fixed an issue where the host user was unable to send MyCOURT invites after leaving MyPARK/Pro-Am with a squad. 
  • Addressed a number of issues with Accolades not unlocking at the appropriate time within MyCAREER. 
  • Pressing the back button will no longer cause the game to hang from the MyCAREER NEXT menu after being eliminated from the playoffs.

  • Numerous tuning and code enhancements to improve simulated player stats. 
  • Playoff games (within a series) can no longer be played out of order in MyLEAGUE Online. 
  • Found and fixed a case where visiting certain submenus with no head coach would cause the game to hang. 
  • Fans of relocated/rebranded teams will no longer hold up signs referencing the previous identity of the team. 
  • Fixed a rare hang that could occur when the ticker referenced a previous game result where all of the players on the team have since been traded. 
  • Selecting to load a custom draft class will no longer cause a game hang in the MyGM offseason if you had previously been fired during that same offseason.

Note: All patch fixes will work in your existing game mode saves.
