Three-on-three action basketball game. Like the first NBA Street Vol. 2's roster of players comprises both fictional Street Legends and real NBA players. In addition to teams of contemporary superstars, the licensed half of the roster also includes great NBA names of yesteryear -- Julius Erving, Clyde Drexler, Dominque Wilkins, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Pete Maravich, George Gervin, Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West, Bill Walton, and more. The classic players add a nice bit of leavening to the game's style, with the short shorts and high socks of the NBA's old school contrasting with today's baggy jerseys and loosened-up attitude. In total, the roster includes 145 modern players, 6 fictional Street Legends, and 25 NBA Legends.


VP6 Videos

NBA Street Vol. 2 uses the VP6 video codec, common in Electronic Arts' titles, causing its videos to have vertical line artifacts and other glitches on many graphics cards. The Software Render will display VP6 video correctly, but is typically too slow. VP6 rendering also reacts poorly to the Force Texture Filtering enhancements (and Anisotropic Filtering on NVIDIA), causing further scrambling. See issue 7193. In 5.0-15515 or newer, this can be fixed with "Manual Texture Sampling" in the Graphics Settings -> Advanced menu.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
