Installation Instructions0) Exit FM15 Completely
1) Backup Your Events & Sounds Files
Find them at
\steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2015\data\events\
\steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2015\data\sounds\
Simply copy these two directories to somewhere else out of the game dir, if something goes wrong we can cover them back.
2) Apply Patch
Extract the patch to game directory, means here
\steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2015\
OS will ask to merger and overwrite some dirs and files, click OK/YES to confirm, you have a backup of those in previous step so nothing to worry about.
That's all. No need to overwrite events XML file in updates dir (\data\updates\update-1520\events\).
3) Delete Events Files In Updates Directory
No need to touch events files in updates dir, but in case any odd thing happen, it's recommended to delete them.
Backup first of course. Make a copy of this directory
\steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2015\data\updates\update-1530\events\
to somewhere out of the game dir. Then delete all files (two files: "match_events.xml", "match_sounds.cfg" ) in it.
4) In-Game Testing
Start FM15, make sure that "Use sound in match" is ticked and "Volume" slide is high enough in "Preferences" - "Match" Tab.
And next, VERY IMPORTANT, do a "Clear Cache" + "Reload Skin" after installation.
Jump into matches and enjoy!
5) Known Issues
Sometimes two or three commentaries come out together and mix into chaos, nothing can be done about it.
Version 0.6 integrated modified sound files by Bart, this multiple commentaries weird thing is reduced.
