  1. Thanks for your replies. Indeed, having investigated further, it seems that this can be put down to "user error" in the editor. I've amended some things, run another test, and now have just entered the ACC. All is well.
  2. I've added the Palestinian West Bank Leagues to my game, which all appear fine. Though what I really want, is for the Palestine National Team to enter National Competitions too. At present, they only play friendlies. Is this hard coded, or, if I removed a weak Asian Nation from Qualifying in the editor (to create a space), start a new game with Palestine enabled, would this get Palestine into National Competitions? Any advice on getting this to work will be much appreciated. Thanks.
  3. I wanted to quote this particular reply, as although it is not exactly my situation, Fitzcaraldo's sentiments mirror my own. Whilst I understand the anger felt and expressed by many at the direction SI/Sega have decided to take in retailing the game, like Fitzcaraldo above, I feel there's no point in being a dick about it, and prefer to bow out in graceful disappointment. I too have been an avid customer of SI since the very begining, missing only two iterations of the game since its inception. Last year's being one, and that was only because I play the game slowly, and was enjoying 10.3 so much that I prefered to carry on with my current saves. Was looking forward to 2012 from what I'd read, but now I realise that my FM buying days will be coming to an abrupt and unwelcome halt. I don't have internet at home, don't have a laptop to travel to an internet connection, and even if I did, I take exception to being told that in order to play the game that I love, I must download, sign up to, and install a third party software distribution platform (Steam), that cannot be uninstalled from my PC. I have no wish or need to elaborate, but suffice to say, I wouldn't touch Steam with someone else's barge-pole. So, no hard feelings here, just great disappointment. That the days of just popping down the shop, buying a game I love, sticking it in my PC, and playing it; are a thing of the past. I don't think for a moment that my opinion carries any great importance or significance to anyone that matters, but I did want to register my feelings at the current state of play anyway, for the record. Fortunately, I have some great saved games on 10.3, and will continue to enjoy them, on what (despite being two years old) is still a great game. Thanks for the good times SI.
  4. Hi guys. This is just a heads up, to let you know that I'm not buying FM2011 until patch 3 this time around, and as such, will not be in a position to work on a new Sound Pack until then, if this one does not work on 11. I'm still really enjoying a few saves on FM10 at the moment, and the last couple of years I've not really enjoyed the game until the final patch was released; so I decided to carry on enjoying my games on the excellent 10.3 for now. During the last year though, a few members here emerged as being very capable of producing add ons to my original pack, so I'm sure someone here can come up with a great Sound Pack for you. If no-one else has made one by the time patch 3 comes out though, I'll be happy to produce another Sound Pack. Just wanted to let you know my position, so as you're not waiting around for me. Thanks, and I hope you all enjoy your new game. Benn.
  5. Yeah, sorry I had you type all that out for nothing. Any ideas on my stadium question, anyone?
  6. Ahh, sorry. I've just realised that despite having the advanced panel active and using it for my created nation, that (in my ignorance) all the work I've done on the individual competitions was in the nation rules. So I see that I was indeed combining the two, and I've just seen the sheer amount of work I'd have to do to rework it all now. In which case, I think I'll leave it as it is, and make my next project using the advanced panel instead. Sorry to waste your time. While I'm here though, to save starting another topic, any ideas on my stadium question, and why my created stadium is not working? I've just checked, and did not assign it to the created city afterall. It's assigned to a real life city, but still is not being used for cup finals as I've set it to.
  7. Advanced Panel. I did write the section I mean, here: What I mean is, under: menu>file>details, at the bottom you can check if there are any "Custom League Errors". If there are, you get a message there. Any advice on how to set this up properly would be appreciated. Thanks.
  8. Just finished a test holiday season in my new Americas Intercontinental Super League, and everything went well so far. I do want to make a few changes to the Play Offs format though, but I'm not having much luck. What I want to do, is keep my current Relegation Play Offs (they work fine) where one team from higher division plays the play off placed team from lower division to decide who deserves promotion/relegation. But, the change I want to make, is to have two teams from the lower division in the play off, alongside the one team from the higher division; playing each other Home and Away in a league format, with the winner taking the place in the higher division. Issues: 1). In testing, (before adding 2nd team to play off places in lower division, when it was just one against higher division team), even though I had "league" selected in editor for play off system, the game only sets up one round (ie, only one fixture) and I can't see how to change it to two rounds in advanced panel)? 2). When setting up a 2nd team to join play offs from lower division, testing the rules (displayed under "file" section) gives the following error message: "Number of teams promoted from Premier (3) doesn't match number of teams relegated from Elite (2)". But, I do have 3 teams set to relegate, and it worked fine on the old format, relegating 3 teams, with an additional relegation play off to decide if the fourth bottom team survives or relegates. The only change I've made, is to change "number of teams from lower division in play off" to 2. Why is this causing the game to think only two teams are set to relegate, when I have 3 selected? 3). Even if I set up a cup format for the play offs instead, I cannot see how to change it to a two legged event, rather than a straight single knockout round? ~ ~ ~ Other side issue, unrelated to play offs: I have created a "super stadium" with 198,000 capacity to hold cup final events at. Set to "is national stadium" for my created nation/competitions, and set all cup finals to play at national stadium. But in game, my stadium is ignored, and "neutral" venues are chosen to host finals instead. Is this because I have it set in a "created" city, that possibly is not being recognised by the game? If I were to instead assign my new stadium to an existing real life city, would this fix my issue? Thanks for any light you can shed on my problems.
  9. Fine with me. Due to difficult family circumstances I have been unable to focus any further time on the Sound Pack, nor be online anything like I was before. You are welcome to use my template with your own additions. I wish you success with your creation. Kind Regards, Benn.
  10. That would be a fantastic idea! I can't believe it never occurred to me! A close member of my family has spent the last month seriously ill in intensive care, but I really should sort my priorities out and get back to the sound pack, then no one would have to waste their time reading the topic for a fix to this life altering critical error. In the small amounts of time I've had free to play the game lately, I have also noticed a few tweaks I wish to make to a couple of the sounds, and I will fix the issue you mention (which incidentally has still not even occurred for me yet) for Version 2, which will be released as soon as I can find the time, between work and family commitments. Thank you.
  11. Excellent, thank you very much n0va; as HonkyDick has stated your fix worked, I'll take that as fact until I hear otherwise. That is the only thing I did not try, as I was reliably informed when creating my original pack last year (by someone here who knows a lot about editing) that I should not have command strings on separate lines unless after a '#' commented out line. Lol. Thanks. As for the PA, I agree with you, that it sounds too loud during pre-season, though I've tried turning it down, and then it's too quiet during the season when the attendances rise. So I had to make a choice, and decided to put up with it during pre-season, so I can hear the PA better during the season, when it counts. I have used a programme called 'Audacity' up until now. It is limited in places, but on the whole, has served me well. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ However, I've recently had my attention turned toward a programme called 'GoldWave': www.goldwave.com/ I've not had the chance to actually try it out yet, but it certainly looks much more sophisticated than Audacity, in my personal opinion. You are welcome. Yes. I have changed pretty much most of it. Thank you very much Riz. You're the first person from SI to actually offer any kind of comment regarding my Sound Packs, so that means a lot to me. And great news on the patch, thank you. Joe, as I said to you in my PM, I will do so myself, just as soon as I have the available free time. I want to do it myself, so that I can keep track of the number of downloads, so please just remain patient with me until my day off on Saturday, and hopefully I'll find some time then. Thank you. And my thanks also for all the other kind feedback since my last post. It is always much appreciated. Kind Regards, Benn.
  12. Could anyone please spare the time to help me get my media sources and journalists into the game? I've never had a problem before with previous versions of the game, but for FM2010, no matter what I try, the game is just not picking them up. I've tried editing out the dates that appear for some publications and just leaving the quotation marks (as mentioned by SGTFlipFlop), but that has no effect either. The files appear in the Preferences menu at the start of creating a new game, and are all ticked for inclusion. Yet, once the game begins, low and behold, the same old boring (and sometimes slightly incorrectly worded) SI local media show up for my press conferences. Could anyone perhaps offer a screenshot of exactly what what needs to be where, so I can check what I'm doing wrong? Finally got my edited database into the game, and now my media won't work. *sigh* I just want to start playing. Thanks if you can help. Benn.
  13. Ok, back to 'work' then. Firstly, with so many replies since I was last here, I won't have time to respond to each one, but I do want you to know that all of your kind comments are very much appreciated. Thank you. In theory, no; the Pack's sounds do not know to adjust themselves for level of attendance. That kind of hardcoding is only possible for SI to implement, and is not something that can be covered by the scope of this pack. However, SI's hardcoding does indeed try to adjust the volume depending upon attendance. In effect, what this means, is that whilst the sound pack's volume will adjust itself in accordance with the game's preset volumes, it will just sound like the same crowd, with the volume turned down. No, there is not. I can only implement the sounds that I have at my disposal. Thank you Macon. All members who have enquired about the Data folder location using steam, should refer themselves to this reply. Indeed it would. But that is beyond the scope of my limited skills at this point. I cannot see it having any major impact. I'm on a system that just about scrapes by in 2d, on a single core processor, and the sound pack works fine for me. If you've installed it into the correct location, and taken into account the reasons given in the opening post that will affect what sounds you hear, then no, it will not matter what league you're playing in. Well, apart from hearing English songs in the Allianz Arena of course. Yes. Open the 'Default' folder in the 'Sounds' folder, and then delete the following wav file: -- FM_crowd_european Then go into the 'Events' folder, and open the 'Match Sounds' file in notepad; and then delete the command strings: -- SOUND_LIGHT_ANTICIPATION, "FM_crowd_european", 0, 4, 2, 0 -- SOUND_LIGHT_ANTICIPATION_OPPOSITION, "FM_crowd_european", 0, 4, 2, 0 If you do it correctly, that should remove the sound from your game. I will refer all comments regarding the above error, to this reply: Unfortunately, in last season's pack, this was a relatively uncommon, but nonetheless annoying thing, when it occurred. It did not happen for me often, but when it did, it was always at the end of a game, and whilst frustrating, it never caused the game to crash. Just had to click the warning away. Unfortunately, I could not find a way to fix it, whatever I tried. This year, so far, it has not occurred for me, hence my previous belief that it was fixed. Clearly, that is not the case, as some of you are experiencing it again. I will see what I can do, but unless I get the error again myself, it will be difficult for me to work on a fix, as currently for me, it is not 'broken'. Can't promise anything, but will do my best. Though unfortunately, it may come down to how much you enjoy the benefits of the pack, and if you consider they outweigh the slight frustration of having to click that warning away a few times at the end of a game, every now and then. Please remember, that I am far from being a 'professional' at this, and am just doing the best I can, with my limited knowledge. Lol, I don't blame you. I wouldn't pay to download it either. That is why I would recommend that you simply use the free download button underneath the Premium one instead. Lol, thanks. I am sure that you did not mean for your post to sound quite as condescending as it did. As I recall, you made a post asking if anyone wanted you to make a new pack for FM09, and lots of people said that they did. Then you failed to return, and never told anyone why (until now). Hence, we had a situation where, when I purchased the game in February, we still had no sound pack at all, for 09. I found the sounds in the game to be very disappointing, and set about looking for a pack. That's when I came across your old thread. As no-one else had made a pack, I did the best I could, to at least put together something I felt was an improvement on the poor sounds shipped with the game. I decided I had indeed improved upon them, and so released the pack for anyone else who wanted to use it. But, it's strictly 'as seen'. I make no pretense at being particularly good at this, but as I'm the only one volunteering to make a sound pack right now, I guess we're stuck with my inferior efforts until someone better comes along. Thanks. If you have any suggestions on the 'light groans' error some people get from time to time, I would appreciate any advice you may have. As for expanding upon my work, this is very unlikely. I too have a family to look after, and job to attend, so have very limited time for even playing the game, let alone making a sound pack. At the end of the day, I make this pack for my own enjoyment, using my limited skills and time; and then offer it to anyone else who feels it is an improvement on the sounds that SI provide. If anyone is bored by it, I would welcome them to spend their time creating a better one. It shouldn't be too difficult. If you read the opening post, your question is covered there. I'm probably misreading you, but if not; no. The pack is free of charge. And thank you for your kind feedback. I would have done so, but was unsure of the correct coding to implement the ones I have, other than putting them in with the 'Team Chant' command string. Unfortunately, I simply did not have the free time to do so. If the previous advice from those who use steam does not work for you, I'm afraid that short of suggesting you look in the locations given in the opening post, I'm unable to assist you further, as I've never used steam, so do not know where else you might look. Sorry. That brings me up to date with my replies for now. Thanks again to all who've taken the time to offer your feedback. It is much appreciated. Currently, we're on 1232 downloads so far, so hopefully that means alot of people are enjoying the sounds. Kind Regards, Benn.
  14. Hi, just a quick note to say sorry I've been unable to be here during the last week. As you know, I was away on holiday (got back tonight), but unfortunately, I did not have an internet connection where I was, which was unexpected. I will respond to you all tomorrow, as it is late here now, and I'm still trying to figure out why my nice shiny new copy of FM2010 I bought this evening, will not load a new game with my first Editor file, lol. I'll respond to PMs tomorrow too. Thanks for all your feedback. Benn.
  15. I just replied to your PM. Hopefully that helps. Please let me know. I'll reply when I next can.
