FIFA20 Classic Player Commentary Names

Hi everyone,
I'm making a classic squad file in FIFA20. In this version, the commentary name seems to be different between previous versions. For example in FIFA18, we just import the ID of classic player like Cambiasso, the commentator will speak his name when he gets the ball. But in FIFA20 we need to change last name ID for him. However, the playernamesID list is lack of many classic player names. But I check when we create new player, some classic names are still there (like Berbatov on the image). So how can I get that Berbatov name ID? Or can I copy commentary file from FIFA 18 to FIFA 20 or do anything? Can anyone help me to do that?
Many thanks !!

I must first say that I don't have FIFA 20, but there's exact issue in the 19 too. This method works for FIFA 19, and I'm pretty positive it will work in the 20 aswell.

You need to add a new value to the playernames table with the commentaryid (ex. 29448 Pirlo 926385), after that you can use that name in the players table. I suggest you to apply changes in both db players table and the squads file you're making. When you're done import the new db with Frosty and that should work when you load the squads.

Hope this helps.

What is the format of the specifcs names commenatrc file.
Is it in .DAT? Or something else,I wanted to port to PSP/android version
You can open fifa_ng_db with DB Master and edit commentarynames table directly, or it can be exported as a tsv txt file. Although, I don't think you can do anything with just that, it should be a part of the main db, at least for the PC version.

Yes,I get what you're saying, the commentary name is always found in db.
But I mean the commentary file.big
Try opening the a conmentary data, extract a single commentary daya from it.
Check the extracted data gotten from the commentary file,what is the format,for some console it's DAT,some as Viv or in aud.
But,check out for me

Normally name already exist in the playernames table, and it has commentaryid (not 900000), you can just copy that nameid and put it as a last name of the player you want. However, if the name is not present in the playernames table, but it is in the commentarynames, then you need to add that name to the playernames table, as described before:

There's no .big file or any commentary data as in audio file, that is still inaccessible with Frosty. There are some audio chunks but that's not usable. The data we want to manipulate here is just text.

I'm not really sure what you meant.

Thanks brother. I am new at this. Problem is i can only access Players table using RDBM, but i can't find any table called 'playernames' or 'commentarynames' or column name 'commentaryid'. Is there any way to find (where to find these files) and edit these table and column (how to open and which tools to edit these files, is it RDBM, Frosty Editor or other?)? Please let me know the details if possible. Sorry for troubling you brother. I follwed this instructions - 'https://github.com/xAranaktu/FIFA-20-Live-Editor/wiki/Editing-player-commentary' but no help so far.

Yeah, no problem. You need to extract fifa_ng_db.DB with Frosty Editor, and then open it with DB Master. There you can see the commentarynames and playernames table.

Brother sooo many thanks. I have successfully added some commentary sound to some players. It was a great suggestion and help bro. So much appreciate it.
Hi man one question regarding this. When you finish editing the playernames table in DB Master, how can you actually apply it to the squad file? Thanks!

After editing playernames table using DB master, then add 'nameid' to any player you want to add commentary sound to it, then save it, and import the saved db file to Frosty Editor then save as a Mod file or project, then apply it (as a mod always place this mod bottom of apply order - bottom of all mods). Also put the nameid (from 'playernames' table) in any player (you want to add commentary sound) in squad file as well, using RDBM. Then save it, open fifa using Frosty Mod Manager or Editor, then load the save squad and check from kick-off (disable the live/online squad when you start the kick-off).
