FM2015 Real Names and German National Team Fix File v2.0 for FM15.3.0 [25/02/2015]
This file will need to be re-applied if/when 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.

The sortitoutsi real names fix changes the instances of fake names in Football Manager 15 to the proper, real life names for awards, cities, stadiums and competitions, in cases where the actual name is not licensed. It will also fix the fact that the German National team doesn't call up real players. These are fully save-game compatible.

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 German, Italian and French clubs to circumvent licensing restrictions. It also adds real-life media and journalists, with 26 media files added to encompass all major footballing nations and continents. 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 these files to work, however, you will need to start a new game.

Magrippinho very helpfully created a YouTube video on how this file should be installed. Some of the contents are different - but the procedure is identical, although of course you use the equivalent folder for FM15.

Or, you can follow the below instructions to install v2.0 of this file (if you are installing a previous version please use the 1500 folder instead of the 1530 folder:

Step 1: Go to

PC
 Program Files \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ football manager 2015 \ data \ db \ 1530 
Mac
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2015 / data / db / 1530 
You can find this folder by clicking, in the Finder, the Go menu in the menu bar, then choose Go to Folder and type the folder path name (obviously inserting your username), then click Go.

Slightly more detail in this post

Linux
/home/user/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Football Manager 2015/data/db/1530/

Please note that the Local folder is hidden. Press (ctrl + h)
Android:
sdcard\Android\data\sportsinteractive.fm15\files\installed\data\db\1530
For Mac Lion users, the Library folder will be hidden. Use this link to find out how to show it.

Step 2: Delete the edt and lnc folders from the folder above

Step 3: Copy the edt and lnc folder from this download into the folder mentioned in step 1.

Step 4: Go to:

Documents \ Sports Interactive \ Football Manager 2015
Step 5: Open the folder named "editor data" contained therein. If it does not exist, then create it.

Step 6: Keeping the folder in step 5 open, go back to the file you downloaded and select the folder named "FM15 Real Names Fix Files from sortitoutsi.net v2.0".

Step 7: Paste the circled folder directly into the folder mentioned in step 5.

Step 8: This should be what your editor data folder looks like. There may also be a config.xml file in this folder and can be safely retained; it is generated by FM every time the game starts.

To make sure the files have been applied correctly, go to the Champions Cup and EURO Vase in your saved game, and they should be renamed to Champions League and Europa League respectively. If you are in the middle of a save-game, German national teams will be populated in the next instance that players are called up, and not instantly. Club names (including the German ones) 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.

Some of these changes may not apply in FMC...

Just started a new game yesterday after the patch was online, used the 15.0 database because i use a transfer update from pr0. Still have the real names and stuff like that.
Do i need to start a new game again, or am i good with this?

You'll be fine but you may wish to install it just in case you want to start a new game with the 15.3 db in the future

Ok, thanks for your reply
I've just dowloaded the latest release but no names are changed. The Premier League is Premier Division and Schalke 04 is still Gelsenkirchen FC. I followed the steps above so I'm pretty sure I've done things correct but, obviously I could've missed.
Sorry if I'm being stupid here, but my game has gone back to Premier Division etc following the update. I've reinstalled the new one but it's still not working. Appreciate any help

I'd have to have a look at the contents of the 1500>lnc and 1530>lnc folders.

I think this issue is save-game compatible at least
COPY the 3 lnc files from the 1530 folder to he other one. You should have the same files in both folders
Ah OK thanks a lot for the quick responses
Still nothing Do I have to quit game?

«This comment has been edited»
Ahh, got it, sorry for any inconvenience and cheers for the help
I think the only solution is to start new game It happened to me as well, so I started new game and everything was fine.

Johnno, it didn't work for me for a while and then I unticked "Use caching to decrease page loading time", reloaded the skin and it worked
Good to hear. It should theoretically work with the lnc files as well. Perhaps 15.3 includes a fix for the bug which did not allow the concurrent use of the Japanese league file and this download


Yup I tried with the lnc files and it works! Awesome
What to do with dbc folder? I copied it to my game, should i´ve done that? How should the dbc folder look like? In that folder i´ve a folder called permanent and seven .dbc files. is it only the nation_start_dates.dbc file that should be there?

You need to make sure the lnc files are installed correctly. Can you upload a screenshot of your 1530 > lnc folder please?

No real need. Unless you know what you're doing, just leave the existing files in 1500 and put the new files in 1530.

Works perfectly fine for me. Do you have any other editor data files installed? Perhaps the problem is from them.

This is what my dbc, edt and lnc folders look like. If they're not like that, then you've installed this file incorrectly.
