This is the reason I did not put my commentary pack up as a download because of the compromises and crash risk. Also, I mentioned before, my sounds are not contained in an fmf file but as a seperate folder, for ease of editing, which I'm still working on to reduce as many of those irritating repeat comments and overlaps as possible, without losing too much content. I'm not having any issues so far, even after the 21.2 update, apart from the VAR one, mentioned elsewhere on here.

Yes, I couldn't get the download with the fmf file to work, that's why I've stayed with my version.

Hi
It is possible, but you must not overwrite the simatch.

I was referring to the "simatchviewer-pc.fmf" file being the issue.

Ok. Can you explain how, considering that the replacement file have the same name?

No idea, I didn't create the file, only that it causes issues with FM21.

Verify your files via Steam

If this is done, the game sounds will return?

Just the default sounds, prior to mod.

prior to mod?
You mean before I install the sounds on this page, right?

Yes. Verifying will overwrite but best to remove any sound modifications beforehand, just to be certain. Verifying will simply add the default sound files.

The reason the VAR got all “messed up” and crashes occurred is because “simatch.fmf” which contains the “matchevents.xml" and  matchcfg.xml" files, will need to be edited for the live commentary to work instead of replaced with an “older version”.

In previous versions they could be just replaced with the “commentary files” from previous versions and it would work, now they need to be manually edited (which is a lot of work)…………….

 

When I reviewed, I noticed there is a portion with “VAR related code” and some other added code throughout the new file. So I'm now (slowly but surely) manually restoring the commentary code into the new files, without touching the newly added code and VAR code. This should add the commentary and prevent VAR issues and/or crashes.

 

As I'm still working on this I haven't been able to test it, but pretty sure this is the actual issue.

I haven't opened the “simatch.fmf” to compare yet, as I was using my modified separate config files but it seems you're on the right track. Another element that I've noted with using the commentary pack being that if you choose to watch a league/completion highlights post match, FM will CTD after the second/third game replayed.

It all depends on how your settings are, I play in extended with slower speed and hardly any duplication nor two commentators at the same time.

It's a free world, you don't like it, that's fine, don't use it……

But it's not as bad as you say it is, only if you put highlights in “key” with higher speeds its' not good at all, and I explained that (as the commentary can't keep up with the speed of the game).

I tried it slow and extended, still had clashes, it doesn’t always follow the game

 

prefer the crowd sounds and chants patch, more realism

Annoys the life out of you

 

it purports to put commentary in the 3D game, it is just stock phrases that don’t reflect the game on screen, i had “superb pass” when scoring a penalty

 

it duplicates a lot

It would be great if the sounds were updated either officially or via a mod.  The default sounds are really poor, no wonder no one listens to them and listens to music or whatever.  If the sounds were better, would more people use them?  There needs to be discernible differences between different levels of matches, say Premier League compared to league Two in England for example.

 

Years ago there was a good sound pack with specific crowd chants and chants of “Sack the Board” when you were doing badly and “The referee's a w**ker” when the ref made a decision.  Sadly it doesn't work with later versions of FM.

There is a match sounds mod with chants and sounds that works on 21, think it was on fmscout
