FM2016 Real Names and German National Team Fix File v3.2 for FM16.3.1 [07/04/2016]
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
I'm not sure if it's been done but I think OM short name should be changed to Marseille.

Erm, it's included in the editor data file already. Are you sure you have installed this download correctly?
I don't know if someone has already pointed this out, but the Venezuelan first division is now named "Copa Traki".
Nobody had, but I've now changed it in my files
In my game Flamengo (Brasil) it's called Flemish and its colors are wrong (they are black and red IRL and in the game is yellow and blue). Every other teams and competitions are correct so far. How to fix this? Sorry for any english error it's not my first language.

«This comment has been edited»
That's strange and that's the first time I've heard of anything similar. I haven't touched Flamengo in my files, so I'm not sure it's related to this download.

Can you upload a screenshot please?
I'm using the update by pr0 and only south america leagues from http://sortitoutsi.net/downloads/view/19427/fm16-megapack-80-leagues-by-claassen along with your files

Because your files deal with team names i thought it might be the error but if isn't nothing to deal with your files can you at least explain me how to fix the colors and name of the team? Thx

This download does not edit kit colours and, I've just checked, the only two Brazilian names edited are Grêmio Osasco Audax EC and Clube Atlético Pernambucano.

I suspect that there is a mistake in either the pr0 files and/or the South American leagues. To change the kit colour and the club name, just open the pre-game editor, load each editor data file and check which of the files contains the errors - and amend them accordingly.

Hope this helps.

What's wrong with the short name being Seraing Utd and the long name being Seraing United?


Short name was Francs Borains in my game

That's strange. It was Seraing Utd in mine. I'll have another look...

These tournaments changed their names after the league reform in 2015.

Bolivia:

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 86009019 "Campeonato Nacional B Simón Bolívar" ""

Chile:

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 5250792 "Campeonato Nacional Scotiabank" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 5250792 "Primera División" ""

I suggest removing “de Chile” from the short name.

It is quite mixed up in the database. Actually, it should go like above stated.

Venezuela:

Thanks for these, very much appreciated, and added to my files
This download does not edit kit colours and, I've just checked, the only two Brazilian names edited are Grêmio Osasco Audax EC and Clube Atlético Pernambucano.

I suspect that there is a mistake in either the pr0 files and/or the South American leagues. To change the kit colour and the club name, just open the pre-game editor, load each editor data file and check which of the files contains the errors - and amend them accordingly.

Hope this helps.


This error is actually because of a very small update released this week. It is a file called "Licensing.dbc" on the dbc folder.

Removing this file corrects the problem.
Interesting, I wasn't even aware there was an update released this week!

It was smaller than 1mb, and that file seems to be the only change.

Some one said in another forum that it could be because Konami has the rights to use Flamengo, so they changed name and kits in FM to avoid problems.
Hmmm, could be. I'll release a new version of this file if that is indeed the case...
Normally I change a lot of SHORT NAMES in several leagues in the editor - and with this fix I can also change the german and french SHORT NAMES.
But it's not working this year with FM2016.
I have done the installation of the fix-files as recommended.

As far as I'm aware, there's nothing different from previous years in terms of short names. So what worked last year should work this year...
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


In other words, by using above, you can control all SHORT and LONG NAMES by yourself - adding lines (teams) to the fix-file or changing the names within the fix-file, with notepad or text-edit (MAC) ?
Excuse me, I tried to use this license fix and It worked perfectly in 3 weeks of the season. But after that, It don't work anymore and everyname come back to fake names. Can you help me solve this, pls?
Awesome as always mons.

Yes, that is indeed the case. The only exception is for those teams who already have an edited entry in the dbc file. In these cases, the editor data change takes precedence over any lnc changes...

Are you running a pirated version of FM16?
As pointed out earlier in this thread, a recent tiny SI update changed the name and kit colours of Flamengo.

I am therefore releasing a new version of this download to counter this. Previous versions of this file needed to only delete the edt and lnc folders, whereas this file will also necessitate deleting the current dbc folder, to be replaced with the one in this file.

Yes it will. To be honest, the major difference is the fix for Flamengo, which solves this issue, created in the very small patch released by SI last week.

https://scontent-mia1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xpa1/v/t1.0-9/165968_866474440130081_4584159165593834389_n.jpg?oh=f34e36d97e82ce57acfe6d08c3cb8d7a&oe=56D853A7

If you started a new game in the past week, then this file will not solve this issue, and the only way to do so would be by using a save-game editor.

Otherwise, the only way it will affect your save-game is that a small handful of competition names will be updated.

If you started a new game in the past week, then this file will not solve this issue, and the only way to do so would be by using a save-game editor.

Otherwise, the only way it will affect your save-game is that a small handful of competition names will be updated.

Hope this helps

thanks for your answer
Erm, it's included in the editor data file already. Are you sure you have installed this download correctly?


So, I just figured out why it didn't work it's because I didn't save the folder in the editor folder didn't think I needed it, wroks now, So big thanks for your work.

I know this isn't the thread to put it but thought I would say as you're a staff member something has gone wrong with images in the data update the images are no longer saved as ID's instead it's untitled. Thought I would mention it.

Thanks for that. Can you link me to a post or a thread in which things are not displaying correctly, so that I can post it directly in our staff forum?
