TheMochna and Mahmood will be bringing you an extensively modified menu with fresh UI elements and brand-new lighting for all 30 teams utilizing special technology for a revitalized image of the game. Cinematic 2K-like lighting as well as an RTGI (Ray-Tracing) reshade for optional use along with it. As for presentation and pretty much everything else, changed everything to sort of serve as a direct upgrade that 2K might do. This project should feel like a direct upgrade from vanilla 2K21, not a sidegrade.

The main screen does not change.
It's not patched, is it?
I watched the video and imitated it.

Make sure you copy all the content from the .rar file into your Mods folder. It should show a new design with new portraits and background.
