NBA 2k14 MyCareer Crashing with Custom Roster

Here are some common tips on how to able to have a stable, working MyCareer. Please note that these tips are only recommended solutions and does not guarantee that it will fix MyCareer mode for you (Source: Medevenx).

  • If your game crashes while viewing some endorsement, try to play game in window mode.
  • Avoid using a modified scoreboard. A modified scoreboard has a high chance of crashing MyCareer mode after the games have been finished.
  • Avoid using “HD” content. “HD” cyberfaces, jerseys, stadiums, dornas, globals, etc. that have been released untested can cause crashing after the 1st or 3rd quarter of MyCareer, Association, Season, Playoffs modes.
  • Avoid using heavily modified graphics mods. Heavily modified globals, title screens, and other graphics mods also have a chance of crashing MyCareer mode.
  • Avoid using heavily modified tunedata. Heavily modified tunedata and other gameplay mods also have a chance of crashing MyCareer mode, usually before the start of the game.
  • Do not save your MyCareer right away. When it asks you to create a save file for MyCareer mode, don’t (Press “1” on your keyboard or “Circle” for PlayStation/”B” for XBox controllers). Save your MyCarer file later.
  • Delete all MyCareer save files and create a completely new MyCareer save file. In most cases, if you want to start a new MyCareer mode, it has to be a new save file. It is recommended that you do not replace an existing save file and save a completely new MyCareer save file.
  • Delete all other MyCareer save files, then duplicate and rename your existing MyCareer save file. Sometimes, you can proceed with your existing MyCareer save file if you copy and paste your existing save file then rename it to something else, preferably a short MyCareer file name such as MYCAREER1.
  • Perform a fresh install of NBA 2K14. If your NBA 2K14 is too heavily modified that you can no longer trace the cause of error for MyCareer mode and it is that important to you, it is recommended that you do a fresh install of NBA 2K14.
  • Consider upgrading your computer. There is a rare situation where the game crashes because your computer is not compatible with it. Forcefully running the game on 32-bit computers are an example of this. Using processors or graphics cards that are not optimized for NBA 2K14 may also be the cause.
