If you are playing an FM23 save in FM24, then this fix needs to be also installed in the below folders:

 

If you have any issues, first read the FAQ.

 

This file will need to be re-applied if/when official patches/updates are released to ensure full compatibility. This is due to the fact that some files which are removed when installing this file are automatically re-installed by Steam when official patches come out.
 

Some of these changes, ESPECIALLY THE CLUB NAMES, do NOT apply in existing save-games. There's a workaround for that in the first post.

 

The sortitoutsi real names fix changes the instances of fake names in Football Manager 2024 to the proper, real life names for awards, cities, stadiums and competitions, in cases where the actual name is not licensed, such as  Premier League displaying instead of Premier Division. It will also fix the fact that the German National team doesn't call up real players. These fixes are all fully save-game compatible.
 

The following are not included in the beta version of this file. There is also a club name changes file, which changes the names of clubs in a way which ensures that any nicknames entered in the default database are retained. This file includes the proper names for Brazilian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian (including Napoli) and French clubs, as well as Manchester Utd, to circumvent licensing restrictions. It also adds real-life media and journalists, encompassing most major footballing nations and continents. Brazilian clubs' text colours are also changed through an editor data file. Another editor data file creates the Ajax non-playing staff missing from the database due to licensing restrictions. Finally, it includes a small file which corrects the 3-Letter competition names to correspond with any changes made in the lnc files. For all the files in this paragraph to work, however, you will need to start a new game.

 

Follow the below instructions to install this version of this file

 

STEP 1.

If you are playing an FM23 save in FM24, then this fix needs to be also installed in the folders in the below image IN ADDITION TO THOSE INDICATED BELOW the image:


OPEN 

Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2024\data\database\db\2400

DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

The easiest way to get to these folders is by going to Finder > Go > Go to Folder and copy and paste these exact paths and you will be taken to the right places  ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Football Manager 2024/data/database/db/2400/

 

Alternatively you can get to the Library folder by simply selecting Go from the top bar and holding "alt" key - The Library folder suddenly appears on the drop down menu

 

For Mac Lion users, the Library folder will be hidden. Use this link to find out how to show it.

 

For those struggling to find the Steam and Steam Apps folder etc using Mac with the new OS High Sierra, this link below shows how you can unhide your Library folder which will then let you find the other folders.

DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

STEP 2:
COPY the dbc, edt and lnc folders from the downloaded pack 

STEP 3: 
PASTE them into each of your respective folders mentioned in step 1.

 

These are what the respective folder structures should look like in the 2430 folder:

 

dbc: 

 

dbc/permanent: 

 

edt/permanent: 

 

lnc: 

 

STEP 4:
COPY the 9 files located in the EDITOR DATA FILES folder in the downloaded pack

 

STEP 5
PASTE to \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2024\editor data

 

This is also the same folder to be used for Gamepass.

 

Equivalent folder for Mac

Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive

By default this folder is hidden, so to access you need to do as follows:

Open Finder
Click ‘Go’ from the menubar
Press and hold down the ‘Option’ (Alt) key
This will bring up the ‘Library’, click to enter then go to ‘Application Support’ -> ‘Sports Interactive’ -> ‘Football Manager 2024’

 

Equivalent folder for Steam Deck

devices / home / deck / .local / share / Steam / steamapps / compatdata / 1904540 / pfx / drive_c / users / steamuser / My Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2024 / editor data

 

Equivalent folder for Epic Games

/Users / [your user] / Library / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2024 / editor data

 

This should be what your editor data folder looks like now. There may initially be a config.xml file in this folder and it can be safely overwritten; it is generated by FM every time the game starts.

 

 

To make sure the files have been applied correctly, go to English Premier Division in your saved game, and it should be renamed to Premier League. If you are in the middle of a save-game when you install this download, German national teams will be populated in the next instance that players are called up, and not immediately. 
 

Club names are only changed if you apply the editor data files before starting a new game. For a workaround if you've already started a new save-game, then please read the opening post of this thread.

 

The final version of this download for the default database can be downloaded from here.

I'll try a new career later this day and tell you. 

 

It's OK with a new career. The problem is I don't want to delete all the seasons I made.

Seems like you didn't install the fix properly before you started your current career then. Not much which can be done at this point in time, other than changing them manually with an in-game editor.

It's the problem. The in-game editor don't allow me to… allow the good kits. Thanks for your help.

How strange - it looks like this on the English version:

 

Are you running an editor data file which edited that particular name perchance?

 

 

@mons  Try loading the Italian language and see what happens 😄
It's the same issue as with Arezzo. In the Italian language, it appears as Atletico Arezzo.

I did, because I'd actually thought that was the reason and started to type my answer accordingly before checking - and it looked the same as in English 😕

 

Not sure what can be done in cases like this where there seems to be some coding for different languages to display names differently 😢

Just add those two strings, then it will be resolved for every language 👍

Just realized that the facepack for players from the French and Dutch national teams is missing. I've reinstalled the real name fix and reloaded the skin, but it hasn’t solved the issue. Any advice? Do I have to wait for national team callup?
