Official Tips for Scanning You Face in NBA 2K17 MyPlayer
*Make sure your face is in even lighting from the front with as few shadows as possible.
This is the single biggest cause of bad scans.
It can be hard to keep your eyes open in direct light.If you need to blink, stop moving your head so the app will not take any pictures at that moment.
*Hold the phone at eye level.
Many people hold it a few inches too low and point it back up.
*Hold the phone around 18” from your face.
You don’t necessarily need to make your face fill up the outline on the screen.
*Turn your head slowly to a max of 45 degrees.
*Look forward as you turn your head.
Many people try to stay focused on the phone.
*As you turn your head, make sure you are not just pointing your chin from side to side.
Many people do this because they are subconsciously trying to keep their eyes on the phone.
