Download Wrapper NBA2K12 Updated 4/30/12

* * * * * 1 Votes Please vote for the Quality of this Port / Wrapper, not for the Game or Application!

The NBA 2K franchise is back and bigger than ever, providing fans with the opportunity they’ve always dreamed of – to finally END THE DEBATE as to who are the best teams and players of all time.  Featuring such NBA legends as Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird as well as all of your favorite NBA players of today, NBA 2K12 is packed with new and exciting features putting fans center court of an unprecedented basketball experience.

Personal Notes:
If the official port of NBA2K11 worked on your machine, this port should perform similarly, if not better.

Application icon by ~KingAciD on DeviantArt.com

My System Specs:
- OS: Mac OS X 10.7.3 (Minimum recommended: 10.6)
- CPU:    2.4GHz Core2Duo (Minimum recommended: 2.13GHz Core2Duo)
- RAM: 6 GB (Minimum recommended: 2GB)
- Video: nVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT (Minimum recommended: nVIDIA GeForce 320M ... Sorry--Unplayable on either ATI/AMD or Intel.)
- Disk Space: About 9 GB disk space

Known Issues:
- Online play hasn’t been tested ... I’m happy to try it out with any willing volunteers!
- Like last year’s port of 2K11, there is often a lag at tip-off and sometimes in the game menus. Otherwise, it runs without caveat!

- Drag and drop NBA2K12 installation folder from previous Program Files folder (from Windows machine) or install using Wineskin installer, then apply your favorite no-DVD crack (the final .EXE file should end up at /Program Files/2K Sports/NBA 2K12/nba2k12.exe).

What's New in Version Updated 4/30/12 (See full changelog)

  • UPDATED 4/30/12--Wineskin 2.5.4 WS8Wine1.5.0
  • *** Sorry, still not playable on ATI/AMD ... ***

alright sounds great!
really needing the update haha cant wait
I haven't forgotten about you!

I'm afraid the news isn't great, but it's getting better. Thanoulas is doing some AWESOME work on an ATi patch for Wine 1.5 (see here--http://portingteam.com/index.php/topic/6944-wine-14-git-raw3patch-rawwarppatch-wbempatch-without-xinput2/), but it doesn't quite solve all of our problems. While the patch fixes all of the texture problems, it slows the game down to an absolute crawl, regardless of resolution or settings (except for all low, which already works in this present port).

Keep your fingers crossed! I'll update this thread if there's any good news!
I have to same problem
updated yet?
iamlegend--Nothing doing, yet. I'll keep you posted!

Hi, PeterSteven13--As noted in the System Spec and Wrapper Type & Video Card Compatibility, this port is not compatible with AMD/ATi graphics cards. I'm hoping to change that, but I'm not making any promises! See the link I mentioned above and then visit here for some of the technical background on why OS X, AMD/ATi, and Wine aren't playing nicely together on this!
frustrating to see this game is not compatible with AMD as i have an AMD Radeon HD 6750M on my imac.

any progress?

thank you
Bartonkeyes--I understand your frustration as I own an iMac myself with an AMD card! As I mention in the links above, though, this is an issue much larger than my wrapper. I've been in conversation with Thanolus (who has been working on the ATi/AMD patch) about the issue, and I'm hopeful that Thanolus is moving towards a solution on it.

That said, no news just yet ... I'll post back as soon as there is!
Great. Thanks man.

Hmmm ... Can't say that I've ever run into this issue before. Are you trying to install the game from a retail DVD?
I just have to drag the setup.exe file to the wrapper right?

Try installing it this way--

1. Right click on the wrapper, select "Show Package Contents"
2. Inside the wrapper, you should see an app called "Wineskin," double click on it.
3. Select the "Install Software" option
4. Browse to your retail DVD (you are installing from a retail DVD, yes?) and run the setup.exe file as though you were installing the game through Windows.

Let me know if that makes any difference ...
mhh still the same error-
at first i tried it with the retail dvd, but now i only have the .iso ...
