We interrupt your Vibe experience with BREAKING NEWS!

3.thumb.jpg.6051ef6586834b48248fed1414e39a50.jpg

In what has been a major shock to all football manager fans globally, Sports Interactive (SI) have sensationally cut ties with their in-house commentators, before selling their broadcasting rights in a multimillion-dollar deal to television giants, Ski Sports.

Disgruntled commentators were seen earlier today, leaving the famous London office, as they were clearly no longer part of SI’s plans.

It’s a move that many believe was made to quell any remaining fans still left aggrieved by the latest FMM20.

As for exactly how this is good news for the fans, we go straight to Kelli Kates at the heart of Ski Sports.

4.thumb.jpg.61870cc0b5517e22fd29d0f7121ba9f7.jpg

Kelli Kates: Hello and welcome to Ski Sports as we get underway for our very first foray into the exciting world of FMM!

Joining me today are co-commentators and in-game analysts Jaimee Carrigher and Garry Nevil, alongside our very own, Marten Tylar!

(turns to the commentary and punditry team on the pitch)

Hello gentlemen, good to see you all and what a strange turn of events this is! Fancy us here discussing a mobile game, but… Here. We. Are. The real question on everyone’s mind is: Why are we here? What exactly is this all about? Let's start with you, Jaimee.

 

Jaimee: Thanks, Kel. I'm thrilled to be here. I don't think it's any big secret that years on years of wishing for features unfulfilled have left many FMM fans jaded, not least of all on Vibe. SI have always tried their best to appease the difficult fans, but in doing so, they’ve somewhat neglected what has always been an underrated feature of the game: the match commentary.

It’s simply one of the features that hasn't seen the light of day, which in my opinion has always been a tad repetitive. I mean, if you’ve played anywhere as much as I have… come on, surely, you’ve all played it…

5.thumb.jpg.464cb654526f1c2aaccc1b0c296a83d3.jpg

(awkward silence as Jaimee sighs)

In any case, no disrespect to SI though, as they've done a brilliant job, but not all fans see it that way… especially not if you’ve been invited to the many bug parties they've thrown us in recent years – like the aerial bug, the persistent deep lying midfielder bug, or the wretched winter conditioning bug! I mean, there's nothing new in the tactics department, which you would think is the very core of the game and the very reason we- (trails off)

Anyway… (clears throat) hopefully we can bring some life and passion into the match experience, and give all the FMM fans just a slice of what they deserve.

 

Kelli: Thank you Jaimee, indeed what FMM fans deserve. Let's not dive into that penalty box though! (laughs)

Garry, to help us get back on track a little, could you elaborate on how Ski Sports will be hoping to improve the match experience?

 

Garry: Certainly Kel, I’ve actually had the pleasure of working alongside Marten in the commentary box over the past few months, just for this moment.

6.thumb.jpg.d45554adb24b13d745a1e4d2e0b06114.jpg

To drop some actual numbers, we’ve prepared roughly 1300 lines of additional commentary to the existing 4405 lines this year – providing, what essentially is an additional 30% of in-game commentary.

This is of course, English only, as we did not have the funds to purchase additional language rights!

Oh, and might I also add that nothing in the original commentary has been edited, save for some corrections to spelling, grammar and timing, so purists needn’t be alarmed.

 

Kelli: Excellent. As always, we appreciate how thorough you are with your analysis...

(mutters under breath) even if you’re a bloody Manc...

 

Garry: Wait, what did you just say...!?

7.thumb.jpg.1024d7b291c37f1d6e0e5de0b99029be.jpg

Kelli: (spins on her heels to walk away with Marten Tylar)

Unfortunately, we only have time for just one last question. Marten, as none other than our lead commentator, any thoughts or comments before we get the ball rolling?

 

Marten: Yes, well it remains to be seen how pleased the fans will be after this sudden take over.

I’m sure some might be thinking, what actual difference would a few extra words really make? As any commentary can become tedious if heard enough times. Trust me, even my biggest FIFA fans can attest to that!

This is why, I’d like to mention that although almost every event in game has new additional lines, our primary focus lies not so much in the general play but the moments of magic that defines games. We've added commentary to all the most frequent events and those that have a direct impact on play, like fouls and yellow cards, and that is great.

But what we want most of all is to generate much more energy and excitement, for all the breathtaking moments that stay long in footballing history – so you can expect more interesting penalty shoot outs, wonder goals, spectacular displays and shock upsets!

Remember Liverpool’s miracle comeback against Barcelona in the Champions League Semi-finals at Anfield last season? It’s iconic moments such as these that deserve the finest commentary so that one can remember them for all of time. And here at Ski Sports, that is what we strive to deliver.

(above: Commentators react over Liverpool’s 4-0 Champions League Semi-final win over Barcelona)

 

Kelli: Oh goodness yes, how could anyone forget that match for Liverpool! I know for a fact that my father watched it several times over! We really do take the commentary for granted without realising the true significance of it all. That was incredibly insightful, so thank you Marten.

Sadly, as much as I’d love to continue, that is all we have time for today… I’m sure the fans now are dying to try out the extended commentary (lowers voice) while I’m dying to get back to playing my own FMM save!

Once again, thank you Marten and Jaimee!

So there you have it, a sneak preview into the world of Ski Sports where we will be bringing all of our passion, professionalism and expert analysis to FMM matches, commencing the very moment you download and install this file.

Please join us for live coverage of all your FMM matches. This is Kelli Kates and kick-off is at 4:30, only on Ski Sports!

How to install:

Android:

Extract and copy the events folder into: 

Data/com.sega.soccer/files/installed/

so that it appears as: 

Data/com.sega.soccer/files/installed/events 

Next browse to: 

Data/com.sega.soccer/files/installed/application_support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2020 Mobile/normal/Caches 

And delete fmhi_hdtv_skin.skc 

Additional commentary will now appear in all matches, although you may not notice it at first.

 

iOS:

Sorry I don't have iOS! It shouldn't be too different from installing logo packs so try these instructions:

Open iTunes, go to File Sharing, and select FM 2020 Mobile. Click and drag the events folder into this directory.

Open the game, go to Settings, then to User Interface, and press the Reload Skin button.

If you do not notice any new commentary in-game, then the reload skin button has failed (a known issue currently) and you must reinstall the game and then this events folder before first starting the game.

Please let me know if it works or not in the comments below!

Any chance of having “Aaagueerooooooooooooo” ?

Hahaha I'm afraid not but I definitely would if I could 🤣 The match engine only uses player names when they score but it would be something if SI introduced player nicknames!

Did you manage to get it working btw? This was actually my first upload so I'm keen to know if I screwed up or not lol

please can you do it in spanish

Sorry I don't know Spanish 😞 

I would love it if SI @Marc Duffy@Alari picked up this file and incorporated it into future releases, but I don't see that happening as they'd still need to translate it to all the other languages.

Yeah this year is a little different due to the obb format, so we all have to create the folders now. I'll update the install instructions to something clearer.

Honestly I am not sure if it works for me, probably need to play few more matches to see the difference 

Yeah, that's probably going to be the case for most others too, unless you really read the commentary. I did try to put myself into a commentator's shoes when writing it so it's possible it's already working and you don't notice it!

Hmm... not sure why it wouldn't work then since it has for some others.

The new commentary is only 30% extra, so it might not be immediately apparent. I'd suggest to keep playing and see if there's anything new, as maybe you were just unlucky with none of the new lines triggering.

So, should I play a new game or load a new game that tastes commentary?

please choose the image that I uploaded which is correct and which is wrongScreenshot_2019-11-25-17-54-34-004_com.alphainventor.filemanager.thumb.png.7606d5abbe5c9abc62dd89d1eb34a9d4.png

These two are correct. Restart if you haven't already.

You don't have to start a new game, just load any game.

Yep, you can delete the event file in obb.

It's probably working already but it's just not obvious. It shows up like any ordinary commentary text but with different lines occasionally. Hopefully you'll notice something new soon. Otherwise, I'm sorry I can't help you 😞
