Get ready to lace up your virtual sneakers because NBA 2K24 is here. It is your regular NBA game, and perhaps that is the reason why it is not being received well by the players. Repetitive gameplay aside, bugs and errors could also be one of the main reasons for the game’s negative reviews on Steam and other gaming platforms. With that being said, in this article, we will go over an error that many are currently facing, the Error Code EFEAB30C or 4b538e50 in NBA 2K24. So, if you are encountering the same issue, consider reading this guide until the end.
Talking about this error, it prevents you from playing the game with a pop-up message containing the error code. Now, this error is not new. In fact, this error has been present in previous NBA titles as well. That said, there is no “one fix for all” kind of solution to this error. But, since this error is not completely new, as we mentioned earlier, we have some workarounds that might help you solve the issue. But remember, these are not guaranteed fixes by any means.
NBA 2K24 Error Code EFEAB30C or 4b538e50: How to fix it
The first thing to do is to close the game, followed by your PC or console. Remember to leave it unplugged for some time before you start everything up again. This may sound simple, but you never know what a simple restart can achieve.
Keep checking for the latest updates for NBA 2K24. It is possible that an update or patch has been released addressing these errors. If an update is available, download it and check if the error persists even after updating the game.
Verify your Email ID
To verify your MyPLAYER account, visit the official website of NBA 2K, click “Sign In” at the top-right corner, and enter your MyPLAYER account credentials. If the login is successful, your email address will be automatically verified during this process. If not, check your email inbox for any verification links.
Exceeded Number of Accounts (for consoles)
Sometimes, the error occurs if you’ve created more than five NBA 2K accounts on a single console. In such cases, only the first five accounts created on that console can access online features. Unfortunately, there’s no workaround for this limitation other than to remove any excess accounts from your console and then try again.
Network Related Workarounds
It’s possible that a network-related issue is to blame for the error. So, to solve that, you can try these troubleshooting steps. First, make sure your internet connection is stable. It is recommended that you give your router a quick reboot at this point. Simultaneously, check the game’s server status to confirm there are no widespread outages.
Send data to 2K
For this, perform a PathPing and TraceRoute on a connected computer by opening the Windows menu, typing “CMD,” then entering “pathping -n 220.127.116.11” and “tracert 18.104.22.168” in the command prompt. Once you receive the statistics and trace results, copy and paste them into Notepad and send both documents as attachments to the support team to help diagnose and address potential network interference issues.
Wait for Data to be Synced
It is possible that your in-game data is not synced correctly, especially if you have accidentally deleted your drive’s reserved space. So, to fix this, launch the game and select the “Play Now” button. Now, wait for an update message (which can take hours), navigate to the main menu upon receiving it, and allow the update to install. After this, you should be able to enjoy the game without any interruption.
