Can you send it to me on PM?
Sure, I'll look for it.

Afaik, FIFA 14 by default has 36 songs, so that trick wouldn't be useful for me, even if I'd be forced to delete one or 2 songs, which I don't think so.
However about "copypasting" into .sbs file, I wouldn't be shocked in .sbr file contains some metadata like song length. I experienced that messing around with FIFA 11 soundtrack when just copypasting compatible 2010 WC songs, made music stop after the first song. Back then, there was a .big file containing such metadata for every song separately. In FIFA 14, I suppose, all are packed into 1 file.
Maybe I'm wrong, but sure, I'd like to know more details, so you can write them in PM as well
Why wouldn't it be useful? You can therefore have 72 songs in total (the default 36 FIFA 14 songs and 36 other songs).

And if in fact it is possible to add/expand more entries to the database without issues, you could then double the amount of songs in the database.

For example, if you can add 80 songs to the database (songplaylistlinks and eatrax) without encountering bugs in the game, my trick would then allow to make it 80×2 = 160 songs. Not that this is always necessary, it's just a theory and something you can do if you like.

Anyway I'll PM you and explain you this (simple) trick further if you want.

When creating my modifications, I want to keep all the basic functions of the game itself. That is, if I did as you said to put 2 songs in one place, I can't choose between them because they will play randomly.

A cool feature for someone who absolutely doesn't give a shit and just wants the music to play, but I'm unlikely to use it. Nevertheless, it's nice that you say that, because it's some kind of alternative when, for example, I may have no other choice.

If it doesn't look like that, tell me.

And btw. I'm now testing that increasing bench thingy and it definitely works for tournaments. This is 100% confirmed. But friendlies still only have 7 subs. At least for now.

I understand and I agree with you.

Yeah, it is indeed more of an alternative incase someone wants/needs more songs and a solution that could be beneficial.

Have you tried adding that rules_numsubsbench line at the end of settings.txt (the id for "friendlies" is one of the last lines/the last "competition" in compobj if I am not wrong).

I can't PM you, but here is the splash.fsh from the 2014 World Cup game (unpacked and editable):

As for the gui, one thing you should be able to add are the "stadiumintrovideos" (as it's called on the World Cup 2014 game), which shows the stadium the match is played in when you start a match in a video.
can you explain how can a video be added before a match?

Sorry for hijacking the thread but you seem to know your audio stuff?
I'm trying to keep the game from messing up commentary names in my Womens Mod:
Bad news:
- when instead of building the mod on top of the converted F22 DB I build it on the vanilla F14 DB and just import female players from the converted F22 DB, the commentary names seem to be lost at some point (no more Morgan, Dunn or O'Hara). Even though it's a lower priority issue, maybe we can import a couple tables from the F22 DB into F14 and have the call names?


Originally many of the players are using real commentary names such as Morgan, Scott, Dunn, Sinclair, O'Hara, White, but as I continue editing the DB for the mod they either lose their commentary completely or get new weird commentary names like Wang, Voronin, etc.
I tried exporting playernames and commentarynames tables from F22 DB and importing them to F14 DB with DBmaster, no changes were heard (still Voronin and Wang), then I tried doing the same with playernames table, and the game crashed when I select Kick-off.

That's weird, but it's an unique issue and therefore I can't really know what the issue is/should be.

Official splash thanks to @fifayoun

and I'm quite disappointed. Not because of fifayoun. The resolution of this splash is 1024x512. As you can see, it looks a bit blurry on the modern Full HD monitor.

I'll reconsider upscaling it with AI

Yep, unfortunately the PS3/360 splash screens are in that format.
