The SOK Bumper Commentary Pack 2010

Another 2,000+ lines of added commentary!

Yes, another 2,000. Another monthly update from the SOK team brings the number of added lines up to a super size 8,000 +. Classics, old favourites, Partridge quotes and many, many original lines that will liven up your match commentary.

The SOK Bumper Commentary Pack is an ongoing work and the team plan to provide an update on the last Friday of every month. As always we appreciate your input. If there are any lines you would like to see included in future versions or if you want to be kept informed of the latest developments email EatMySok@hotmail.co.uk.

From the team that brought you the KROL commentary file back in 2005 comes a brand new commentary pack for Football Manager 2010.

Just to refresh your memory, the 2007 KROL file was developed over several years and included the work of the legendary Taipan. After we were contacted by Sports Interactive, parts of the file were later implemented in Football Manager 2006.

This year, we decided to bring the team back and work on a brand new commentary file, an aspect of the game which we feel has been a bit too generic and repetitive over the last few years.

Initially, we had problems with the pack but with the help of Seafire - whose new addition to the team came as a blessing in disguise - we were able to overcome these problems and successfully implement around 2000 modified commentary lines which we hope will enhance your gaming experience. These lines have been thoroughly tested and there have been no reported problems.

The new modifications to the commentary file include the following:

* More goal celebrations

* More in game comments involving the managers

* More in game comments involving the players

* More lines creating larger sense of drama for different occasions ie comebacks, winning a trophy/title

* Improved media references

* and much more....

Please be aware that this pack has been designed for English commentary only and will not work for any other languages.

Our main aim is to ultimately change every line of SI's original commentary, along with as many alternatives as we can in an attempt to provide the fans with as less repetitive a gaming experience as possible for each game.

We would welcome your feedback and in the meantime we will be starting work on Version 2.

Find the ’events’ file on your hard drive by going to 'My Computer' and opening the C: drive.

Depending what, if any, update you’ve installed the path will be something like:

C:/Program Files/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2010/data/updates/update-1030/data/events

Or for Steam users:

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2010\data\events

Unzip the ‘events’ file in this download and simply replace the one in this folder. You might want to back it up first.

Don’t replace ‘match_sounds’.

If you have any problems please email EatMySok@hotmail.co.uk and we’ll do our best to help.

the replace quite a number of default commentary lines..

yep we have replaced most of the generic lines - we have kept some in in some cases and added to them. For the most part though we have freshened up the whole fm in game commentary and will continue to do so in the next versions.

It works with a current saved game I assume?

I was about to respond to this saying "no it doesn't" having tried it for the first time and got a "save data could not be loaded" error, but having tried it with the events file back the way it was, it appears that I've merely got my first corrupted save data since 01/02... I think my automatically scheduled weekly virus scan kicked in in the middle of saving. It's more annoying as I think that was my favourite save file since FM05...

I think I might Have done it wrong? Is it once I've opened the file, I just extract the events.cfg file to it's location: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\football manager 2010\data\events?

I keep getting errors when unzipping the file???

I've tried all 3 of them twice over and it's the same every time.

The problem is the file size the download claims it's only 200kb in size while the events size is 16.3mb.......so no comparison.

Please could someone who has it working upload to another place or contact me so they could email it please?
