Bringing Back the Sonics Part III

I'm getting a little restless from trying to mod the NBA Live courts to make it work with the Sonics. My latest go-round has been trying to mix and match courts/arenas and Sonics graphics, since I can't figure out how to hex edit the o/ord/orl court files that NBA Live uses. There's editors out there for these files for the PC versions of Need for Speed/NBA Live but it won't work with the console versions unfortunately.

The screenshot shown here is using the Boston Celtics court with SuperSonic logos. The green/yellow combination goes really well! The only problem is the baseline graphic is blackened out and I am still trying to figure out why this is happening.

I've also tried combinations with Milwaukee Bucks (also green with red), Golden State, Indiana, EA Sports Arena, Adidas Arena, and others. The Celtics and Bucks are the best looking, though having a black court with Sonics logo is kind of cool too. I'll keep working at it...
