View Full Version : match day sounds

06-06-2009, 16:12
im not complaining or anything because i love this game but im just curious as to why they dont seem to improve the sound effects during the game. Does anyone know the real reasons why they tend to stick with the same generic sounds every year?

Because there are more important things SI could work on. There are also very clever people out there who make soundpacks for downloading.

is that the real reason or is that just an opinion?? personally i would have thought that hearing the crowd chanting ur team name when ur 3-0 up against ur rivals or hearing an almighty cheer when the final whistle goes and uve actually won the league or even the old sack the board chant when ur treading a fine line before u get sacked a very important part of creating the match day experience

I think it is because a lot of players don't play with sound on. I'm one and adding to the sound effects would be a waste of time. I think it's just like baker.simon said really - it's not that high on the list of things to do.

why do ppl not play with sound??? that i do not understand......thats blasphemy!!! :P

Yeah but how many of those people that don't play with it on is because the sounds crap in the first place? There is no incentive to even play with it on. Plenty of people will probably never play with sound, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be improved on the half assed state that it is now for those that do does it?

You can download sound packs. And tbh, would you rather they improved the ME or improved the sounds?

im pretty sure if 1 lad can make a sound pack with no money, im sure si could make an offical soundpack with the resources they have.

and anyway if they made a soundpack and it was rubbish then maybe ppl would leave the 3d match engine alone and complain about the sound instead :P

Bennico released a soundpack a little while back, IIRC it's on FM Base :thup: :)

Erm, no, I think they'd complain about the thing that affected their results rather than something cosmetic (although people are very good about complaining about cosmetic things around here).

read first post, its not a complaint its an enquiry. and tbh i havent complained about anything else in the game in my opinion its 90% perfect.

Would the same people that work on the match engine also work on the sound design though?

having improved sounds can only be a bonus for the game not a negative. u can always turn it off still if u dont want it, im quite sure that the majority of footy manager players would agree to having imrpoved sounds. id do one of them polls to ask the forum but im not sure how to do it.
