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.

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
3. Slovene league (3. SNL) added Sever (North) and Center (Central) divisions, so they should be renamed as "3. Slovenska Nogometna Liga Sever" (id 62159236) & "3. Slovenska Nogometna Liga Center" (id 62159235)

The names are only and all in inglish???

Thanks for this, I'll take it on board for the next version of this file

Competition names are in the language of origin wherever possible, as are club names.
Hi Mons! There is a new version coming up for the patch right? FM is unplayable without your update :p

Whenever is there not?

I'm constantly updating the files and will release a new version once the patch is released...
I have two maps named Sport Interactive/Football Manager 2016. And both maps contains folder named Editor data.

Its confusing.
Your saved games are contained within the games folder of only one of the two locations. These files should be placed in the editor data folder of this location.
'San Marino League' should be renamed to Campionato Sammarinense

NASL is being labeled as 'Supporters Cup'

Hi! Noticed that the Italian Serie B club FC Bari 1908 still using their old name AS Bari in the game despite this file. Would be great if this could be fixed=)

Thanks!

It should be coming out before the end of Feb right?

Didn't have any idea about this, so thanks

I reckon SI will release the patch either next week or the week after, but that's just an educated guess going by their past releases. I will follow soon after, hopefully

«This comment has been edited»
Thanks Mons I made a slight spelling mistake there, The correct name for San Marino is Campionato Sammarinese
Another problem with Sweden is that the top division is named the Allswenskan

The correct name is Allsvenskan
Does this work in FMT mode?

Looks fine to me on my files But please keep posting any mistakes that you spot so that I can fix them.

Partially. The editor data files don't (i.e. the media files, 3 letter competition name changes and most importantly the club name changes). There is a workaround to get the club name changes here, even in the middle of a save-game.




The files are ready at my end and should be able to be rolled out quite soon after the patch is released (I suspect at some point this week going by past experience).

Hum, okay. Thanks very much.

Taken from the file in the download link on this very page:

http://i518.photobucket.com/albums/u344/maltamons/Capture_7.png

Looks to me like you're either using another version of this file from elsewhere or you've downloaded another editor data file which amends the name of the Swedish top division for some reason.
Was an editor file.. sorry for wasting your time Mons..

The problem exists for NASL & Campionato Sammarinese though yes?

Hehe no worries, I did think it strange that a mistake like that went unnoticed for so long.

The other changes are in place
mons,

I finally picked up FM16. Just got everything installed, including this file and noticed Chinese clubs don't have their correct names. I started a new game and have the correct competition names, etc., so it's definitely installed correctly.

Did something change from previous years? I know FM14 had a "Chinese club name fix" file or something of the sort.

Thanks, great work as always. Couldn't play without you!

edit - this is what I'm seeing. http://i.imgur.com/bKY1MII.png

Maybe you're avoiding using the corporate names? These clubs change so much it's hard to keep track.

Let me know.

I've added the name changes for Chinese clubs in the forthcoming version to be released with the official patch. Just be patient and it should be at your end quite soon
Very good, cheers bud!
In the USA, the PDL - Mountain Division (ID 20031727) has changed its name to the PDL - Central Pacific Division.

Thanks for that - added it to the file



Anything else anybody wants fixed - now is the time to say it
Slavia Praha to Slavia Prague

Los Angeles - LA Galaxy

NYCFC - New York City

New York - NY Red Bulls

FC Kobenhavn - FC Copenhagen

Sparta Praha - Sparta Prague


Mark, I'll have a look at them. But I won't changed club names from the original language.

FAO everybody else, I'm aware the 16.3 patch is now available. However, I will not be home before 2130 CET (2030GMT) at the very earliest, and therefore I won't be able to upload the files before then, so please be patient till that time. The files are ready (apart from the above possible changes) and shouldn't take me too long to upload.
Is it safe to play using former version? I do not wish to corrupt my save. If I don't apply the fix will it start to callup fake Germans in my save or just for new games? Thx
Hi,

I know I'm late to the party on this, but I've just tried downloading and all I get is a VLC player file. Is there anyone who can help me with this or might know a reason why? I'm using a Mac with OS X El Capitan if that makes any difference.

Thanks,

Liam
