THIS IS NOT MY WORK, I ADAPTED THE EXISTING SOUND AND CONFIG FILES ONLY TO WORK WITH FM2021
The main thanks for this addition goes to:
- Original Patch for FM12 - FM14 by MBarbaric (original creator of these audio additions)
- Ported to FM15 by zzpiggy
- Modified Commentary Sound Files by Bart
The commentary (English only) is NOT the same, nor from the same source, as the popular FM Scout download for FM 2020.
This is improved commentary with less overlaps, although some still occur. I downloaded these audio files a year or two ago from some website so all credit for these improved commentary goes to the original creator.
There was another posting with audio commentary/crowd sounds for FM2021 out here, which both had issues.
The reason for this is that there is now a VAR section in the xml file and simply overwriting the files with the ones that have the commentary from previous versions caused crashes and issues with VAR texts. I manually edited the "match_events.xml" which took me lots of hours of editing and comparing in order to merge the commentary code into the existing file, the result is working commentary with VAR and no crashes!
a) Navigate to your installation folder …………..\"Football Manager 2021\data" and make a backup of the two original files (this way if you have issues or want to revert back, you still have the original files), they are named: “simatch.fmf” and “simatchviewer-pc.fmf”
b) Copy the downloaded 7z file and extract to the same folder ………………….\"Football Manager 2021\data" (where you installed your copy of Football Manager 2021). (Make sure you have a program called “7-Zip” installed, if not and you extract with another program you might get error messages).
c) Start your Football manager 2021 game (make sure it wasn't running while copying the files over), empty cache completely and reload cache/skin for the changed .fmf files to be loaded correctly.
d) Load your game and play with audio commentary.
Again, this is not my work. I merely edited the existing audio and config file(s) to make it work with FM 2021.
Make sure when you play matches in 3D to (preferably) play in “full match” or “comprehensive” in order to have the best experience.
Also reduce speed to just one or two clicks above average.
If you play in “key” or some cases in “extended” mode in combination with high speed action, the commentary will be overlapping (or cut off) more frequently.
Overlapping comments still occasionally occur but a lot less frequent than in previous versions.
Have fun with this addition, even though not perfect, with the added sounds it enhances the experience (at least it does that for me)
