PostSubject: Audio Commentary for FM14   2013-11-22, 14:09

Audio_Commentary_Patch
BY MBARBARIC
Update 16.11.2013









I remember maybe 5 years ago there was a patch somewhat like this that allowed audio commentary for FM and I enjoyed it despite being quite buggy. Ever since then I was waiting for SI to do this properly but to no avail. Although a lot of people play this game on full speed and with music on just rushing thru the matches I know there are a lots of us asking for this feature over and over.

Well, here it is. I won't forget the look in the eyes of my friend when we started up the game first time and commentary appeared. After CM2, FM finally has a word to describe events on the pitch and it is working quite well.


FEATURES
While your out of the box FM has around 80 sound files with crowd reactions and referee's whistle sounds, this audio commentary patch has around 4200 lines of audio commentary that describes various situations in game.

Around 80 per cent of 1062 events that can occure during the game have their own line, to be more precise, between 3 and 50 audio commentary lines that describe them.

Anything from sending off, substitution, hat trick, injury, pleas for penalties, all of them will be mentioned. Commentators will notice when your opposition will pull back to play more defensively or push up to tear you apart if they are losing in last minutes. They will notice when somebody has a good game or a poor one and they will point out things that often go unnoticed in that text commentary on the bottom of the screen.

Is it perfect? Of course not, but it is much better than you would expect it to be. Nevertheless it has problems. Due to limitations in the game, commentaries do overlap more than I would like it. But, it is inevitable as SI would have to recode the game to prevent one commentary popping up over another to stop this. I firmly believe it is doable just it is question of SI's willingness to do it.

OK, So download the file from here and try it for yourself.


DOWNLOAD AT:
mediafire.com ?n4tin02z398ucz4

This is only when English language is enabled on the game, it will not work with other languages.


INSTALLATION

It seems like a lot of work but it will take you around five minutes, four of them being the file copying


Basicaly, you need to put downloaded files into appropriate folders within data folder in your steam file and in the LATEST update (staeam\steamapps\common\football manager 2014\data\updates\...) folder as well. And make sure the sounds are on in the preferences.

Every time new patch installs, copy files into new patch folder within update.

1) BACKUP

First, backup the original files from FM that you are going to replace with patched ones

Go to your FM installation folder,
steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2014\data\events

here backup two files you will find in this folder

events.cfg
and
match_sounds.cfg

save these somewhere where you will find them if something goes wrong

Now go to
staeam\steamapps\common\football manager 2014\data\sounds\

here backup folder "default"
and save it somewhere where you will find it if something goes wrong



2) REPLACE ORIGINAL FILES WITH PATCHED


After you have backed up your original files, you can replace them with patched ones

Extract the folders from Audio_Commentary_Patch_FM2012_V1_0 on your desktop



3) Go to the folder you downloaded

\Users\XXXXXXXX\Desktop\Audio_Commentary_Patch_F M2012\Football Manager 2012\data\events

and copy two files you will find there to your FM installation folder
steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2014\data\events

Now, go back where you have extracted the patch
\Users\XXXXXXXX\Desktop\Audio_Commentary_Patch_F M2012_V1_0\Football Manager 2012\data\sounds

and copy whole folder "default" into FM installation folder
steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2014\data\sounds

Now your FM has learned to speak, go and load a game.


If you have patches installed and I am sure you do, please extract the audio commentary files into
update folder on your installation folder.


With patch 14.1.3 installed:

put downloaded "events" folder into
Steam/SteamApps/common/football manager 2014/data/updates/update-1413/events

put folder "default" into
steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2014\data\updates\update-1413\sounds


With patch 14.1.3 installed:

Steam/SteamApps/common/football manager 2014/data/updates/update-1413/events
steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2014\data\updates\update-1413\sounds


Also, any new patch should be here also so put the audio commentary files in its respective folders.



4) START A GAME

5)untick cache under interface

6) reload skin



6) Turn on your volume and enjoy the game.


IT IS COMPATIBLE WITH OLD SAVE GAMES

iF YOU ENCOUNTER ANY LOSE STRING(s), A WARNING FROM FM WILL POP UP, HIT CTRL + ENTER AND YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO CONTINUE THE GAME NORMALLY. I DON'T EXPECT A LOT OF THIS, IF AT ALL, BUT I WASN'T ABLE TO TEST THE GAME ON ALL POSSIBLE EVENTS SO IT CAN HAPPEN. NOW YOU KNOW HOW TO SOLVE IT. ADDITIONlLY, YOU CAN WRITE DOWN THE LOSE STRING AND POST IT HERE SO I CAN REPAIR IT.

ANY (TEXT)COMMENTARY PATCH IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THIS SOUND COMMENTARY PATCH NOR ARE THE CHANTS PACKS. CHANTS PACKS SHOULD BE FAIRLY EASY TO COMBINE WITH THIS PATCH BUT I DIDN'T BOTHER WITH IT AT THE TIME.

IF YOU WANT TO USE, REUSE OR MOD THIS FILES IN ANY WAY PLEASE DO SO, JUST NOTE ME AS A CREATOR OF THE ORIGINAL.

Well, I imagine that you havent installed them correctly, as they work on mine and many others.

Can you screenshot the two places where the files were supposed to go so we can take a look.

Just put the downloaded default sound folder into steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2014\data\updates\update-1414\sounds 

And put the downloaded events file into steamapps\common\football manager 2014\data\updates\update-1414\events

Remove other events and sound files in the Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2014\data folders. It does work on a Mac also.

I actually delete the older data update folders on my game,



To put screenshots up, either have your own photo host like photobucket and use the URL to it, or use our image server by hosting it via the picture/save icon at the top of the post. Then link it via the picture/plus icon

Has to be something with your Mac then, sorry to say Sad

If you have followed the instructions and put the new default sounds folder in and also the events.cfg file then I can think of anything else that would cause it not to work.

I am assuming that you are playing the actual match and not watching in 2D though ?

Just put the downloaded default sound folder into steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2014\data\updates\update-1420\sounds 

And put the downloaded events file into steamapps\common\football manager 2014\data\updates\update-1420\events

Remove other events and sound files in the Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2014\data folders. It does work on a Mac also.

I actually delete the older data update folders on my game,
