FM 2023 Other Files - FM23 Essentials - Audio Match Commentary
There are 2 versions of this mod available.

Free Version with Commentary: While it offers a taste of my innovation, please note that it has received limited updates since 2019 and is not finely tuned like the premium version. This pack comes with only 1000 sound triggers, it's just a glimpse of the complete version to give you an idea of how this mod works. Available for download on both Windows and MacBook platforms. .

Complete Version With Commentary - Experience the Ultimate Edition and Immerse Yourself in The World Of Football Manager with Live Updates, Featuring a Constant Streams of Fresh Sounds and Triggers, Enhanced Timing for Commentary, Enriched with Crowds, Stadium Effects, and Beyond - Dive into a Treasure Trove of Over 4500 Sound Triggers (Exclusively on My Personal Blog ( PURCHASE BASED )- Available for Windows).


We invite you to explore the Free Version to acquaint yourself with the mod's functionality. Yet, the Full Version stands in a league of its own, boasting an impressive 4000+ additional sounds, a sweeping overhaul in trigger timing, and the elimination of overlapping elements. Trust us when we say, it's a game-changer. But don't just take our word for it — check out the reviews below and witness the transformation for yourself.

Improvements from FM22 to FM23

  • Removal of more dead sound triggers that don't activate any sounds
  • European competition music still in
  • More sounds added for each triggered movement of a player
  • Massive overhaul of balancing the amount and how often triggers activate
  • Additional sound triggers added for new situations
  • Additional sounds added to existing triggers for more variation of commentary
  • More relevant crowd reaction sounds added to situations
  • Crowd chanting and singing added for better crowd atmosphere
  • Added stadium sounds ( announcers, substitution, added time )
  • VAR action
  • Goal Music
  • New Goal Variations - Hattrick - Comeback - Equalizer etc
  • Added pitch sounds
  • More Balancing of all sounds
And Many more.

Each year that passes by this pack becomes more and more improved.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR ALL VERSIONS


I've created a video of the installation process for clear and precise help. It's pretty straight forward to be fair !

INSTALLATION VIDEO .

Windows Installation
Program files -> Steam -> steamapps -> common -> Football Manager 2023 -> data

MacBook Installation
Application Support -> Steam -> steamapps -> common -> Football Manager 2023 -> data

All versions are extremely simple to install. Just download the version you want, extract the x2 .fmf files (winzip or winrar) then place the 2 extracted files in the correct above directory.

Done !

IMPORTANT INFO
When SI update the game it puts your game files back to default and also creates a new version of the game. I then release a new version of the mod Simply just paste your downloaded files back in the data file and your new pack will overwrite the default sounds again. DO NOT PASTE AN OLD VERSION AS IT WILL CRASH YOUR GAME.

Crowd and stadium sounds only versions are also available: ( Non Commentary)

    Hey @MetzFM - this is Chris (sent you an email an hour or so ago).

    Just wanted to say, this mod makes my experience with Football Manager so much better. I'm so appreciative of someone putting in what is clearly a hell of a lot of work, for the good of a fan community - I can't imagine playing FM without this now. It's a 10/10 for me - is there anywhere else I can leave a review to help out? Thanks again.

    Cheers for the response mate. I fully understand, it was more that I wasn't sure If the pack on here was the up to date version or not, so thanks for clarifying.

    I've realised that just rebooting the game back up seems to solve the sounds cutting out so I'm content with this pack as it is as it's still very good. You can't miss what you've never had.. although I do wish there was a way to workaround this issue on Mac.

    Out of curiosity, has this always been an issue on Mac's or is it the new Apple silicon MacBooks which are the problem? Because I don't remember there being the same issues in the mid 2010's etc.

    Regardless though, thanks for continuing to release a version that works on MacBook, it's still infinitely better than the standard in game sounds.

    Unfortunately the problem with macbook is that's its exceptionally restrictive when it comes to reading the sound files. It will only read 1200 lines of text where as the full version has thousands more. Trying to optimize this pack for Macbook is near enough pointless as I can't add anything more to it without taking away something else. It also struggles to play some longer sounds... For example background crowd. It's such a shame as you would absolutely love the full windows version

    Hi Metz, I'm a big fan of this sound pack but unfortunately I'm on a Mac so I have the limited/basic pack and at times - not all, but about 50/50 - I'm finding that when I'm starting matches there isn't the crowd murmur/constant noise in the background and the crowd noise is only present when an event like a shot or a goal takes place.

    Is the free version on offer here the best that is available for Mac or do you have a better, more optimised version for Mac available on your own site?

    Ive also done a bit of Internet scraping and this problem about the CL and EL music seems to happen in the standard unmodified version of the game so this seems to be an SI problem that they are trying to fix themselves

    @jeff44 I'll have to wait for some feedback as I've changed very little and the champions league music is something totally seperatae to the crowd sounds and the champions league music is a cut scene, and cut scenes have their own triggers and seperatae log

    Started using the full paid version of this shortly after fm23 was released. just came on to say I legit cannot use the 3d match engine without this sound pack now. It makes the game feel so much more immersive and the regular updates this guy has been putting out as extra have been great. Thank you MetzFM.
