    I adapted a different sound pack, but also with audio commentary (English only) for FM 2021.
    Link is here, but if moderator wants to upload it here that's fine too.

    Make sure to use the updated "simatch.fmf" as it resolves some minor issues in the same file in the "big" 1.26GB download.

    Good evening, please I was just wondering if it is possible to make fm21 commentary file. Thanks
  • dirkhochheim's avatar
    Hi bro,

    could you add a file for the new FM2021? Would be awesome.
    Something changed in the folder on FM2021 so this one here I think it doesnt work anymore.
    Thank you for your great work so far!

    ok, in FM 2016 work good
    can I somehow open and extract the simatchviewer-pc.fmf file?

    Deleted it in favour of the Russian patch with crowd songs. The idea is good but I get double comments, and very repetitive
  • kojuropp's avatar
    Its just me or the comentary volume is too low compared to the crowd ?
  • zamek9's avatar
    work in FM 2016 ?
  • redemptor's avatar
    I can't seem to get it working with FM20 Transfers & Data Update Packs by pr0 + FMTU. Is this normal? Is it supposed to work only with 20.4.2?

    @ romeovietnam Please what about the double commentary i am hearing, can anything be done about it?
  • romeovietnam's avatar
    @Richardcharlston Nothing news, I just repacked audio commentary sound with new fmf file in 20.4.2. Everythings work fine now~
  • JAwtunes's avatar
    This is a fun add on, well done to the creators.
  • Richardcharlston's avatar
    Hi Romeovietnam, what does the new version amend?
  • romeovietnam's avatar
  • chr68's avatar
    hi, I install the patch as the tutorial says, but I only hear the comments and not the crowd and the sound of the ball
  • proton6's avatar
    Jury is still out . Im keeping it for now but im not playing it as much as im doing banners and kits for my own game
  • Stam's avatar
    @proton6: The idea is good because we're used to how it works on FIFA/PES, but the execution here is not on that level - not necessarily due to lack of effort as the game itself might have certain limitations. With the way it's working now, would you keep it or not?

    @LandonDonovan10 @Luke_Shaw: I've asked 1 of our residents YouTubers for a showcase video on this. If/when is ready, I'll add it on the page.
  • proton6's avatar
    Needs a lot more work but the idea is good . Repetitious to a point that it becomes annoying in parts plus voices seem to cross over each other so at this stage it needs more work but it can only be improved . I always thought it needed commentary
  • Luke_Shaw's avatar
    Video like YouTube to see/hear the Result? Thanks.
  • redemptor's avatar
    I SOOOO MUCH wanted this! Thank you so much!
