Realistic Sound Patch by DazS8

Modified by _Lio_

Modified from Original "FM16 Audio Commentary Patch". Removing the commentary and leaving the crowd sounds that are better than the original ones from the default game.

what i mean was, it is just some not very helpful stadium sounds....okay, but for me not really interesting.
but, if is that + maybe the possibility to include Fan Chants - then it would be amazing
in the Video, it looks like just some atmosphere, but not really good...
the same like last few FM years.

good Day for all, Greetings

Thanks to the makers of this patch. I have downloaded it and will try it out later. As someone mentioned and for possibly future additions, it would be cool to add personalised fan chants. I know there were country specific ones that you can download but not sure if they can be used in the FM20 game .......

I think you may need to put it through Google translator but as for how to get them working in-game ................that's beyond my capabilities.

I use the one on here and I think it improves the sound from previous no end. I am not much of a modder, so not even sure how you can put these sound wave files into the game. I am sure it can be done but it is beyond my capability.

Hi there,

No i tried it, following the same procedure as in FM20 but it would crash on game load up page. I think this may be due to a conflict in the simatch folder / file. Probably best let the makers bring out a new one when they have a poke around. I luckily had saved my files elsewhere and so just swapped them back in and no harm was done.

I was involved in the modifying of the match audio commentary/improved crowd sounds pack and I'm using it in FM21. However, you need to extract the data/simatch/events folder before overwriting with the FM20 "match_events" and "match_sounds" config files, or the game will crash if you attempt to overwrite the originally issued simatch files. If enough people are interested to have an audio commentary I could upload a mod.pack.

I for one would love that. It greatly improved things for me during 3D viewing last time around.

I don't use the FM20 mod with the FMF file as it did crash the game. I did overwrite the events folder in simatch, after backing up, naturally but I keep my sounds folder seperate in my user folder, so I can modify it, which I did initially because there were too many repeats and overlaps. I'll have another look after extracting the fmf files and see if I can overcome it, then maybe modify the the FM20 pack that was posted on FM Scout.

That doesn’t make it much clearer if I’m honest... could you do a step by step account of how we get it working for us thickos?? Thanks again

I don't have all of the folders like it says above. Do I add simatch / events folders and place the two simatch and simatchviewer-pc in there?

I have currently .... C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2021\data

Or does it just go in the data folder, backing up the two replaced ones first?
