    FM18 Commentary Patch

    The procedure I described worked if you follow the instructions EXACTLY. You will have to use the Resource Archiver to open the file I indicated and save the contents in a separate directory. All folders in that directory you leave "as is" only the "sounds" folder you empty and replace the files with the ones in the commentary audio downloaded file. make sure there are no subfolders in it (I remember there is a "default" subfolder for sure), so all audio files should be directly put into the (now empty) "sounds" folder. (see screenshot below of the folders that are created when you unpack the original "simatchviewer.fmf") Once done you use Resource Archiver again but now you pack all the files in that folder (not only the sounds folder, but all the files you extracted earlier) into a new "simatchviewer.fmf" and put the files in the folders I indicated. make sure your game isn't running while you do all this and restart the game, empty cache and reload it, it works 100% for friendlies and regular games. Make sure you allow sounds in matches to be played in "preferences".

    FM18 Commentary Patch

    It is a tool you can use to extract "fmf" files and create them as well, this is the link to steam: https://steamdb.info/app/624240/ Here is the link to the guide:

    FM18 Commentary Patch

    I still had it in my Football Manager 2016 game, I would do a Google search if you would like an updated version, the link to the version for FM 2012 was posted in this thread by MBarbaric who is the creator of this great addition. Found this link: https://www.fmscout.com/a-fm16-audio-commentary-and-more-realistic-sounds.html

    FM18 Commentary Patch

    I got this to work with no issues at all although it is not as straightforward anymore as in previous versions, this is how to get it working in Football Manager 2018: 1) Copy "match_events.xml" and "match_sounds.cfg" from the commentary patch to your installation folder: "Football Manager 2018\data\simatch\events" 2) a) Use the "resource archiver" and unpack the file "simatchviewer.fmf" which can be found in "Football Manager 2018\data". b) Save the files in a separate directory. c) Delete the contents of the "sounds" folder and replace it with the sounds in the commentary patch. (Important: make sure there are no subfolders, the sound files need to be put directly in the "sounds" folder, otherwise the sounds won't play). d) Use the "resource archiver" to create a new "simatchviewer.fmf" file from the changed folder with "sounds" folder replaced with the commentary contents in it. e) Move the "simatchviewer.fmf" file to the installation folder: "Football Manager 2018\data" and replace the existing file. Reload the cache and play your Football Manager 2018 game with live commentary again! I tested this and works already for weeks without any issues. ALWAYS make a backup of you original files in case something goes wrong or you want to revert back to the original sounds

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    Bug spotted by Dariox (thanks for catching this one). After the 18.3 update some panels. including the team talk panel, needed to be fixed, it seems I missed the "match sub talk panel.xml" in the "panels\match" folder of the skin. When you substituted a player during the match you couldn't chat with him. Delete the file so it will load the new default panel and it will work again. (see screenshot below)

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    For users of version 1.3 ONLY: A small bug that only affects a limited amount of users was noted in the "weekend preview" inbox panel ("inbox content with comp match day preview panel.xml" located in "panels/news_item_panels" folder) I edited this panel to make it look cleaner but depending on the resolution used or the display mode (full screen/windowed) the name of the venue could be "cut off" in rare cases. To resolve this go to line 67 in the file named "inbox content with comp match day preview panel.xml" and change "height="245" to height="265" and save the changes, all should look good after that. Otherwise, PM me for an updated xml file if you are unfamiliar with editing xml files or prefer not to mess with it. Below a screenshot from a user who plays in a (much) higher resolution and spotted the issue:

    Version 1.3 has been released, if I missed anyone for the updated download link or wish to download this version please PM me. This should be the last update for the 2018 Champions League skin, bug related issues will be resolved. Please no requests for "technical support" on plugging my panels into your own or another skin. As always I will "skip a year" for Football Manager (to my opinion the small differences/improvements don't justify an annual "renewal"), but I will be back with a new Champions League 2020 skin for sure!

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    Version 1.3 with some graphical updates, small fixes etc. will be released after the long weekend. It will include the kits etc.shown in the screens and will include an option to switch back to faces for those who prefer faces instead of the kits.

    Schedule screen and Competitions screen

    The screenshots are from the Champions League 1.2 skin, I know a few other skins have the stadium picture in the fixtures panel as well, not that many have the recent form column in the league table, the new MILLA skin has it also. Not sure if you want to use any of these skins or do you only want these features in your own skin?

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    I just made changes to the match preview panel in my (WIP) 1.3 version and the match analysis screen. (I changed the faces only to kits, which I think looks cleaner). Let's see how long it will take in other skins to show up LOL ;-))))))

    Do you mean like this?

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    No problem at all, I took 2 great ideas from the Clinched 2017 skin if I remember correctly and implemented them in my skin. i think it is really too bad there isn’t a Clinched 2018 skin, he put it up for a day but was only available by donation and he was asking $10 minimum for it. He should have released a “free” version and maybe later an enhanced one for people who support him. That would have made more sense and asking for so much money isn’t what I would have done either. We are all Football Manager fans and should support each other I think. But I completely agree with you, Clinched was one of the best skins out there for sure.

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    Yes, it is from the Clinched 17 skin, I gave credit to the maker in the readme for 1.2 (this is not available in versions 1.0 and 1.1). A lot of similar designs out there with changes, everybody takes a bit from here and there I guess. for example: I was the first one to create player faces in the pitches for the match preview panel, before that they were only “dots”, now 90% of the skins has the same player faces there. I don’t see it as stealing, we all create things and get ideas elsewhere. Most people give credit which is the minimum that should be done.

    [FM18] [SKIN] Champions League skin

    As mentioned by a few already, this whole discussion is not related to my skin, as someone put it bluntly, "wrong thread". This should be used for discussions around the Champions League skin only, please. People who want to take panels and plug them into their own skin are free to do so, but no "technical support" is offered from my end. Thanks guys

    Glad you like it! I tried a few matches but no icons show up in the little boxes where they are supposed to show, so I agree......better to delete them all together
