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.
http://i518.photobucket.com/albums/u344/maltamons/real-names-fix-2.png~original

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...

Everything works for me except for player names. I did everything to the letter. Are player names even included?
I don't agree but as many people feel the same, you can remove all award names by deleting the Awards.lnc file

thanks for your guidance but as a note these awards names are not specific like Ballon d'or. For example; I manage Real Madrid, I do not know Spanish and my game user interface language is English. So these Spanish awards names do not mean anything for me.
While the competitions' names are sound (i.e. Bundesliga, Champions League, etc.) the German clubs are still single names like "Hertha", "Bayern", "Leverkusen", and even "Munchen Lions"

EDIT: nvm, forgot you need to start a new game to see changes.

I have a mac with OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) and can't find the Steam folder.. already found the hidden Library folder and Application Support, but Steam is not there. Any idea? thank!

In Ireland the league competitions have changed to 'SSE Airtricity' rather than just 'Airtricity' as the title sponsor.

Thanks for this - will be changed in the next version




Nuneaton Town's ground is now called JDRF James Parnell Stadium (for sponsorship reasons) not Liberty Way

Same with this



Everything works for me except for player names. I did everything to the letter. Are player names even included?

What player names are you referring to? As far as I know the game contains no fake player names, unless you choose that as an option before starting a new game.

I appreciate that, but I feel that having award names in the mother language adds an extra layer of realism. You can open the Awards.lnc folder with notepad and edit/remove any entries you want to.

I'm sorry but I don't have a Mac. Try googling for the location of the Steam folder within your OS and maybe you'll manage to sort this out. If you do, please let me know so I can add the details to the OP
can you change the name of red star belgrade?
William Warren
can you change the name of red star belgrade?

I originally changed it due to the feedback from Serbian users and I'm afraid I do not intend to change it back again. To remove it, once the full game is released, open the FM pre-game editor and manually change the names back to whatever you think is correct. This change will take effect once you start a new game.

Thanks for the suggestion! I found the solution here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4qmoYjTMoE
That is some bug issue then. I haven't clicked on fake name, yet it constantly turns up that way. Oh, well...
There seems to be a small problem with Schalke II. In the Sidebar it correctly says Schalke II but if I click on it it says Gelsenkirchen II at the top of the screen. I think the other Bundesliga teams look ok.

mons, in my file it has Red Star as Crvena zvezda - should be Crvena Zvezda!

Thank you for this - it's ace!

(Two tiny changes - Saltney Town play at Saltney Community Centre, and Llanfairpwll play at Maes Eilian)
I always have a problem with the German teams and even if I remove the # in the file inc, its nothing resolved
Ok, one thing that bothers me is having countries being called "The". "The Netherlands", "The United States of America". If I change these, do I have to restart a save? Is it possible to land this somewhere on the docs that gets picked up by the game (like the xml parsing thingy they have in place)

If these are only a few changes you could do them within a save game by right clicking on the nations name and adding a nickname. This is save game compatible but will only work with that one save game.
it is you can play along with team names? and change what I need to do

ex Leverkusen > bayer 04 leverkusen

All the german II team revert back to other names.... Maybe wait until editor is released to get team codes?
so got this working. so each time a patch happens need to start a new game?
look at the pictures, this includes logos for the competitions and leagues. so therefore logos should be there. thank you.


FM2015 Real Names and German National Team Fix File

hmm maybe it is me, but i dont see "logos" in that line
The names wont appear for me
My only complaint, is that you've called the Vanarama conference the 'conference premier' when it was infact already right, as it is the vanarama conference
If you've started a save game already, then this is a workaround. You'll lose club nicknames in this way, however...


Isn't dbc's make you unavailable to leaderboards... That's why I have 2 types of saves... (1 for no customization via dbc for leaderboards... 1 for extra lower leagues etc...)
That's why I prefer club name changes via your lnc file...
Guys just a quick question. I know this file correctly names the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, but does it give the correct background header colour. Currently it's blue for both competitions. On FM13, the fix changed the colour to Dark orange for Europa League and dark blue for Champions League. Is it the same for this one?

The one in the attached picture is an example, can you possibly change that background to the Europe League colours (dark yellow/orange) and CL to dark blue like FM13? I know other users have mentioned it but it would be good if names for teams such as Schalke 04, Bayer Leverkuson, FC Bayern Munich

Except for this, fantastic again!

Which version of the game are you running? Can I see some screenshots of how this issue is affecting you?

It could well be that the second teams of clubs in the top two German tiers will also need to have their names amended when the full version of this file is released. Thanks for this spot, I'll have to check them all

I seem to recall that some Serbian users recommended that it should be zvezda in small letters, but I'll check again and amend if necessary. And thanks for the two proposed changes



I always have a problem with the German teams and even if I remove the # in the file inc, its nothing resolved

Can you upload your amended lnc file please? So I can see that what you've done is correct.




it is you can play along with team names? and change what I need to do

ex Leverkusen > bayer 04 leverkusen

I've posted many times in this thread about how and why club name changes can be changed, please take the time to read these posts - I can't be writing the same things all the time.



All the german II team revert back to other names.... Maybe wait until editor is released to get team codes?

I suspected so but it never crossed my mind previously. I'll fix it by the time the full game is out...



so got this working. so each time a patch happens need to start a new game?

Thankfully, no Sometimes, when a patch is released, some of the files removed by this download are automatically re-generated by the game. Everytime this happens, I generally release a new version of this file which one should download and apply. In all the instances this has happened in all the versions of the game this file has been used in, never has starting a save game been necessary, and I hope SI won't change this policy...




The names wont appear for me

Details, man. Help me help you!!




My only complaint, is that you've called the Vanarama conference the 'conference premier' when it was infact already right, as it is the vanarama conference

I could have sworn I fixed that - but I must have overlooked it. I'll make sure it's correct in the next release




Isn't dbc's make you unavailable to leaderboards... That's why I have 2 types of saves... (1 for no customization via dbc for leaderboards... 1 for extra lower leagues etc...)
That's why I prefer club name changes via your lnc file...

I appreciate that - which is why I manually add (and hide) all the club name changes to the lnc file in addition to the dbc file. This way, people like you who for whatever reason can't or don't want to use dbc files can, with very little effort, change the lnc file according to their specifications

The UEFA competition colours are something which completely escaped my mind and which I will definitely be re-including in the version of the file released closer to game release date.

As for the German club names, you need to apply the Club Name Changes.dbc file before starting a new game and the problem'll be sorted, as explained many many times elsewhere in this thread

Please, can you remove "Ziua" (Romanian Newspaper that it doesnt exist anymore) from Susie Real Name Fixes - Media from Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Malta, Moldova and Romania.dbc

If you want, when editor for FM15 will be out, I can update this file with newer source, like websites/newspapers/tv programmes.

I'll edit it out then. You can edit the existing file with the FM14 editor if you want...
Am I the only one who doesn't get correct German NT players with this?
Did you apply the files after starting a new game? Do the Champions League and Europa League names display correctly? If the answer to both is yes, then you need to wait until national teams call up players at which point the real players should be called up
Hello, first let me thank you for this great job. Keep going like that.

I have two questions:

1. Did I have to start a new save game every time you make a update to this?

Eg: Today I start with this file, If you release a new one in December, did I have to start all over again?

2. And what about new FM updates? Start all over again, or it will be fine?

Sorry if my English is not very well.
I've followed all the steps and double checked twice, then started a new game and it doesnt seem to be working for European Competitions, any help would be great cheers
When I download the file what do I do with it? I have no option to unzip it

It looks like you've not applied the files correctly, then. Can I have a look at your lnc folder please? Please make sure the folder path is showing clearly

Use WinRar to extract it.
