How to Fix NBA 2K15 Crashes, Freezes and Other Errors

NBA 2K15

The launch of NBA 2K15 has been met with a standing ovation, the game proving that it is indeed the best basketball simulation out there. However, not everybody has been able to fully experience and enjoy the game and instead they have been plagued by NBA 2K15 crashes, game freezes and other errors, not to mention the already popular problems regarding the face scanning feature of the game.

We are here to hopefully help you get these problems fixed and therefore enjoy this great game as it’s supposed to. So read on for our tips on how to fix NBA 2K15 crashes, freezes and other errors that you might experience throughout the game.

First of all, if you are experiencing crashes or performance issues and you’re running the game on a PC, then you must make sure that your computer meets the minimum system requirements for the game and adjust your settings accordingly. Lowering down the graphics usually does wonders to the game’s performance, so that’s a good place to start with. If you still get crashes and errors, check out the recommended suggestions below:

– disable the internet connection. Right now, the servers are extremely sluggish, but they will surely be fixed soon. However, if you disable your internet now, the game won’t try to connect to the servers and you can easily play the game.

– make sure that your graphic card drivers are up to date. If they are not, download the latest version and try playing the game again.

– Some users have reported on forums that they managed to fix NBA 2K15 crashes by disabling the Steam Overlay option. After you do so, make sure that you restart your computer before loading the game again.

– Change your screen’s refresh rate to 60Hz, if that’s not the case already. The idea is to have the refresh rate identical to that of the game.

For now, these are the only fixes and recommendations that we have for fixing NBA 2K15 crashes, freezes and game errors. If you have other problems, let us know and maybe somebody will be able to help. Even better, if you know a fix to these problems, let us know also!

    I have a graphical problem where things are not where they are supposed to be like when trying to play the game one of the walls from the arena will just cut all the way across the court and the players dont dribble the ball in their hands the ball is about a metre or so away from the player bouncing in mid air. Also in career mode in the house there all all these weird shadows from the characters and objects where they shouldnt be like the calender floating in mid air and chairs in random places where they shouldnt be and some objects instead of appearing they just come up as strange shadows. Ive been pulling my hair out with trying to fix this all day so any help would be great.

      I had the Shader detail problem too. There are wierd shadows in the videos and in Edit myplayer. It’s gone when I put the setting of shader details to ‘Low’. But some details are gone in the game, like the Sweat, details in the Hex Pads, and shadings in Jersey. Everything is perfect but when I updated my game to patch 2, this problems occured. Help guys
