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)
British crowd and stadium pack
German crowd and stadium pack

Free version has now been updated. please redownload an install as older versions will not work.

    Copy your files you want to keep, use the resource archiver to do this, then verify game files then repack the files you want to keep
  • EDimkA's avatar
    @MetzFM Is there any way to go back to the original files without verifying the game since I did so many changes in my files I don't want to redo it again? I forgot to save them before I installed your files, i'm dumb yes.
  • MetzFM's avatar
    No its save game compatible

  • bluekot64's avatar

  • MetzFM's avatar
    @WulfrunUK

    Thats one of the many huge benefits of the full version, it has been massively overhauled from the free version with thousands of changes made.
  • WulfrunUK's avatar
    Hi, quite often the commentator talks over himself, is there something I did wrong? Would that happen with the full version too? Thankyou
  • theDokes's avatar
    I too would enjoy a sounds only version if possible.

    have sent DM Metz about getting the sounds only version
  • MetzFM's avatar
    The European music is in the full version as it is more up to date than the free version. Like I say the free version although it is a great experience, isn't anywhere near as good as the full version
  • TUFANKAVAS's avatar
    THE EUROPEAN LEAGUE MUSIC IS NOT IN THE PATCH, UNFORTUNATELY. IT IS HIGHLY RELATED TO SPORT INTERACTIVE OF COURSE. SO WHEN IMPORTING ANY FOLDER, DOES IT HAVE TO DO SOMETHING TO HAVE THE MUSIC?
  • Richardcharlston's avatar
    The data folder is in your steamapps/common
    you must have one
  • mike_manny's avatar
    I don't have a data folder so it isn't working can someone help?
  • richbell82's avatar
    @MetzFM Please check your inbox and get back to me, thanks
  • Richardcharlston's avatar
    Hi Metz, my personal view is leave it as is.

    best way round it is to get a tactic to avoid shipping goals-sorted
  • kfnielsen's avatar
    I think its great as it is

    @bosnjo

    Glad your enjoying the mod. The problem with SI and the way they have written the file is that there is no trigger for a home goal or an away goal, there is just a trigger for a goal scored. So at present there is no way to distinguish if the goal was hone or away. You may notice this in the original sound files that there is no difference in crowd noise for a home or away goal. I added the goal music to this as when you are in a stadium watching the match there is always goal music played after a goal. So added this for a little more realism. This is something I'm willing to consider removing. What are other people's thoughts on the goal music being played after a goal?
  • Bosnjo's avatar
    Hello Metz,
    yesterday I’ve purchased the full version of the mod and it is amazing!
    But there is one thing which I would
    change - the goal song.
    It is a bit unrealistic that the goal song turns on when the away team scores. Is there a way to change it, so it turns on only when the home team scores?
    And is it possible to change the goal song to another song or even turn it complete off?
    All in all very good job, thank you!
