FM2016 Real Names and German National Team Fix File v3.2 for FM16.3.1 [07/04/2016] Installation Instructions
I suggest everybody clicks the "Notify me when updated" button to receive an email when the file is updated/amended in the future.

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 2016 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 FM16.

Or, you can follow the below instructions to install this version of this file

Step 1: Go to

PC
 Program Files \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ football manager 2016 \ data \ db \ 1630 
Mac
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2016 / data / db / 1630 
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 2016/data/db/1630/
Please note that the Local folder is hidden. Press (ctrl + h)

Android:
sdcard\Android\data\sportsinteractive.fm16\files\installed\data\db\1630
For Mac Lion users, the Library folder will be hidden. Use this link to find out how to show it.

Step 2: Delete the dbc, edt and lnc folders from the path above

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

Step 4: Go to:

Documents \ Sports Interactive \ Football Manager 2016
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 "FM16 Real Names Fix Files from sortitoutsi.net v2.1".

Step 7: Paste the circled folder directly into the folder mentioned in step 5.
http://i518.photobucket.com/albums/u344/maltamons/real%20names%20fix%20fm16.png~original
Take care to remove any previous versions of this file

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, ESPECIALLY THE CLUB NAMES, may not apply in FMC. There's a workaround for that in the first post.
Discussion
If you have already started a save-game (or you are playing FMT) and wish to change German, Italian and French club names to the correct ones, there is a workaround. However, you will lose the club nicknames.

Open the City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc file. All the changes I've made in the editor data file are included in this file, however they are preceded by a hashtag (#) which makes the lnc file ignore any text following it.

You can remove the hashtags from in front of any of the "CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" and "CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" codes which you wish to change, and this will display these changes in your save game.

Basically, instead of


#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern München" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern" ""
you should have


"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern München" ""
"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern" ""
Mons edit - Thanks for the kind words, but I needed the OP

How do i fix Schalke 04 name? :s
Talk about fast!

Been a die hard FM user for years but always shirk away from these sort of things, going to delve right in to it this year with this file etc once the full game is launched and steady.
How do i fix Schalke 04 name? :s

As explained above, you have to apply this file before starting a new game in order to get the name changes.
The reserve team of TSV 1860 München in Germany shows up as "München Lions II".

Thanks for that - I'll have to fix it for the full version of the file
Hi mons.

I sent you Turkish informations previously. You know. Some Turkish characters could not be added. Fix these lines and I'll send it to you. Wait for me pls.

Please use only NotePad++ (freeware, professional, multi-tabbed and easy) with "UTF-8 without BOM" selection for new text files, use "Convert to UTF-8 without BOM" now. Turkish characters will be able to see when added.

Thx.

Hello Mons,

Fantastic as usual but just a quick theme which you did last year. On the background header you added the competitions colours, so for Europa League dark orange/yellow and CL. Could you please change in next update? I have added a pic if you have got confused what I am talking about!

TopClass update, I've already installed from yesterday, no issue so far. Thanks a lot again for this mons


When out new patch / update you need to start a new save because the file that fixes the names of the teams?

I'm not completely sure what you are asking, but you don't need to start a new game to get the fake names fixed. The renamed competitions and teams require a new save though as those files are loaded when the game is created. You will have to re-apply the fix when a new major patch is released, but. it won't require a new save game.
Hello, thanks for your great job, but somes names of german names are wrong:

2. Bundesliga

Union Berlin appear ( show up ) like Berlin-Köpenick Dammfeld instead 1. Fußballclub Union Berlin e. V. or short name Union Berlin:

I hope you can to fix it for release game, anyway thanks very much for your grea job.

Regards









All of those were fixed in the FM15 version of this file and are also fixed in the FM16 version as well. At least in my save games.

Make sure you have installed the editor data files correctly and that they are in place BEFORE starting a new game.
Thanks for this! Any idea on getting Japan to show?
Thanks for this! Any idea on getting Japan to show?

There is nothing which can be done from our end re the missing Japan-based players. They are hard-coded not to appear. Your best bet is to wait for widehawk to release his annual Japan league and database patch, which would give you the missing Japanese players and the ability to start a save-game with a Japanese club.
Nice one, Mons!

Hello mons all ok, I forgot to put Real Name Fixes - Club Name Changes file into editor data folder, my fault, sorry, please excuese me by my mistake, sorry, thanks youvery much for your great job.

Regards
I'm having some trouble with the download. I don't have the folders. Instead I have a folder called media files and a bunch of random .dbc files. Can anyone help please?

Download it again.

You should have an edt and an lnc folder, and another folder named FM16 Real Names Fix Files from sortitoutsi.net BETA, as in the attachment.
Attachments
will this work in theory with the full version of the game on the 13th (assuming you start a new save) or will we need to wait for a new version to be released to be compatible with the full game and not just the beta? I'd like to get cracking on a long term save as soon as the full game is released but I wont do that until I have your licence fix in place.
