Are Nts anthems included?. If not please PM them to me as possible.
No, but @Rizzaldio already made a soundbank for the RTWC 2018 patch. I'm waiting on him to update a few of the anthem files (or at least tell me the method how to do it myself...)

3 teams done in Excel today: São Tomé & Príncipe, Somalia & South Sudan. I had to make South Sudan into a 3-4-3 diamond formation because there are very few central/defensive midfielders or full backs who are professionals.

7 teams left in CAF/Africa confederation:

South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia & Zimbabwe.

Next will be AFC & Asia (I already made United Arab Emirates). Hopefully with less teams I can finish them within a month! Then the last ones will be OFC (without New Zealand which I have also already completed) & I can finally start adding players & updating teams in the patch database.

This is amazing.

Couple of questions:
1. do you plan to extract more than just Poland from Euro 2012?
2. do you plan to extract club chants from Fifa 08 - Fifa 22?
3. is there any chart or table to match the chant IDs to teamsIDs?
E.g. from listening to the first 69 chants from the WC2014 pack, they all seem to be England's.
@Harry BullZak maybe you know?

Euro 2012 DLC only had Poland chants. There are no other team's chants in the "dlc" soundbank.

I'm not interested in club chants, since my database only has national teams since RTWC2018.

I don't know anything about the chants files sadly.

Of course, I understand that your primary concern is national teams.
However, I would really appreciate it if you could extract club chants from a game like F14 or F16, or at lease share the knowledge and I'd try to do it myself.

If you want to extract the chants yourself, you can use the program foobar2000. You also need the vgmstream plugin for foobar. Make sure that you download the latest builds of both the program & the plugin, since they can always update things for the EA soundbanks.

BTW, I've noticed that FIFA has greenlit the expanded rosters from 23 to 26 players. I will update national teams where possible to include numbers 24, 25 & 26 for DNQ teams. All 32 finalists will now have 26 player rosters. However, smaller teams without the resources in the FIFA series to have more than 26 players will remain at 23 (mostly the .5 star/1 star teams).

Thank you, I'll try.

Could you comment as to why the 2008 folder only has sns and snr files, should I convert them to mp3/wav somehow? Or how do I make use of this folder?

And do you have any idea how one can match WC2010 chant IDs to team IDs?

Lastly, how do I open chants_03.sbr_debug to "find the internal soundbank directories & individual filenames for each chant"?
foobar2000 doesn't seem to be able to open it.
I have managed to open it with some free online tool but it shows lines like
ASSETS\CHANTS\FINAL_ASSETS\NG\EURO_2008\Teams\Armenia\T_ARM_001.aif
yet the WC2014 file names are nothing like it:
chants_01#1 (DSET 00-0000).wav

1. 2008 folder has individual .sns & .snr files because that how EA made the sound assets before they created the .sbr/.sbs file format for making soundbanks as opposed to separate files for respective sounds. You can select all the .sns/.snr files, drop them directly into foobar & they will play.

2. For 2010, no idea. It's just a matter of trial and error, listening to the chants & seeing if they match with a specific team or not. There's no index at all (or at least I couldn't find one in the data .big files of the XBOX 360 game)

3. You can open the 2014 debug files with hexeditor to look inside & find the filenames/file paths. The chants aren't exported according to the internal filenames because foobar doesn't read that in-depth (yet...). It only picks up the sound according to the gaps between headers of each individual sound asset.

Thank you, this worked well. I managed to sort all the files by duration and batch convert only the sound files intoi wav (166 files in total).
However, when trying to convert directly into mp3 (required for fifa), foobar seems to be asking for some "lame.exe" file?

So if I understand correctly, 2014 debug file won't match the names of the chant files and it's still trial and error here trying to match chant to team?

PS
any general tips on extracting all chants from F14?

1. I think lame is another kind of codec or a converter program.

2. No it won't do it by itself, but you can manually search or rename the files in the order how they appear in the debug file.

3. For extracting the chants from from F14, I can only suggest the same method like with the World Cup games. You have to open the chants soundbanks in foobar & extract manually.

Which versions do you need? 2014 WC or 2010? Note that some countries weren't in 2014 (Mauritius & Mauritania) & 3 AFC teams haven't been in any FIFA WC game: Bhutan, Brunei & Guam + there are no EA anthem files for Gibraltar, Kosovo & South Sudan.
