I've always made one of these files for myself but I think it's time to share it with everybody else and create something that can continue to evolve for the community. My file is a fix to some of the Player Shirt Names that do not exist in the game, this usually results in really long names being displayed in the tactics and match screens - you will definitely encounter this if you manage in the Turkish League, Brazilian League and Portuguese League in particular. 

 

The file contains 975 player changes to the database. Extensive research has taken place to ensure the real genuine shirt names are used - I'd also like to use this thread to update this file should people encounter players that I've missed.

 

The file will only be applicable to new saves - And Player Shirt Names will need to be turned on in Preferences/Interface/Team Screen

 

I'm really interested to hear your feedback if this has made your gaming experience better and if its something you would like me to continue to do every season - Enjoy!!

Unfortunately not - It's an editor file so a new game will need to be loaded to include it.

You know there is an option in preferences where you can tick to change player shirt names on tactics screen?

Yes, it’s under > Preferences > Interface > Team Screen.

 

however, the game doesn’t contain the shirt name data for many players. Specifically many Brazilian, Turkish and Portuguese players where “common names” are commonly used such as “Lucas Moura“ with no shirt name data, his name is displayed always as “Lucas Moura” even with the option ticked in preferences. 
 

my file adds this data so his correct shirt name “Lucas“ is displayed. 
 

this is one example of over 500 players I have changed.

Great work, thanks! That's actually the reason why I always buy the ingame editor. It is super annoying if the shirt names are wrong 😀

Thanks great! Soo happy to hear it’s made your life a little easier and your FM saves a better experience. 
 

I have another update coming soon but let me know if you think there’s any I have missed seeing as you look out for this thing as I do every year.

Your approach is already great I think! Before this file I used to edit the shirt names via ingame editor whenever my scouts recommended me a player with a wrong shirt name or when I saw there is something wrong when I saw the line up of another team before the match starts.

 

Do you think this is an issue which could be raised as a bug report in the Sports Interactive Community? Of course they can not have every shirt name right, but what I find most annoying is e.g. that Turkish players in Germany (where I usually play) always have the full name as a shirt name, which is 95% not correct (e.g. for Demirbay the shirt name is Kerem Demirbay). I do not know what causes this.

It’s not exactly a bug. I understand where the issue stems from the “common name“ option in the editor. 
 

for example Lucas at Tottenham Hotspurs.

 

Name: Lucas Rodrigues Moura da Silva

Common Name: Lucas Moura

 

This option in the editor is great, because we get his full name and also the name he is commonly referred as - which gets used throughout the game.  

The issue is that the shirt name always uses a players last name unless there is a common name which overrides this.

 

So in Turkey as you mentioned or Brazil or Portugal. There are a lot of common names that get put on shirts.

 

And this always wouldn’t be solved by changing the shirt name to prioritise the last name (like in Lucas situation)

 

The only solution from SI would be that where a common name exists, a shirt name must also be entered. 
 

This is basically what my File does for us.

All right, this makes sense for players with a common name. But e.g. Turkish players in Germany & other countries (I think strangely not if the play in Turkey) somehow always have their full name as shirt name, not just the last name (e.g. Kerem Demirbay instead of just Demirbay). This is probably 95% wrong (I would only know Emre Can who uses his full name).

 

But anyway, your file already helps a lot 🙂

Yeah it’s still due to the same reason. They have been given a “Common Name“ in the database.

 

Demirbay has ‘Kerem Demirbay ‘ as his common name.

 

There have been positive changes in the database this season though: Bruno Fernandes who suffered from the same issue in game for years was given B. Fernandes as his shirt name. 

 

I do sympathise with SI in these leagues (Turkish, Brazilian, Portuguese)

 

As the shirt names are often first names and also often change season to season.
