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.

Don't exaggerate

How exactly can you tell the fix isn't working? Which part of the fix isn't working?

In addition, can I have screenshots of your 1600/lnc, 1601/lnc, 1630/lnc and editor data folders please?

1630 and German national team, Champions league etc

Can I then have screenshots of the folders I mentioned and perhaps even some in-game screenshots of the parts which aren't working as you think they should?

All looks fine there.

Can you confirm that the same 3 lnc files are included also in 1600/lnc and 1610/lnc? If not please make sure that those 3 files are the only ones included therein, then start a new game.

I meant 1601 not 1610, sorry.

What do you mean 1600 is empty? There should be 1600_fm, 1600_fmc, dbc, edt and lnc folders in there...

Are you running a pirated game perchance? Because I can't understand how those folders don't exist

Ofc not, i have an original one

That's strange, as they're part of the game's installation process.

If you start a new save-game now, does it give you the option to choose databases?

Yes.

Can you post a screenshot of your data/db/1600 and data/db/1601 folders?

I'm struggling here. The files are in the right places, there's no reason why it shouldn't work

Guys is there a way to change a stadium name without need to re start a new game? Plus i check that Udinese stadium name still "Friuli", not change in "Dacia Arena" also if a start a new game. All others stadium names changed, but for Udinese one seems don't work.

Another question, sorry.
I have to replace folders "dbc" "edt" and "lcn" also into folders "1600" and "1601", or only into folder "1630"?

Put this line of code into the City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc file:

# Udinese
"STADIUM_NAME_CHANGE" 1273 "Dacia Arena Friuli" ""

Works fine my end.

If you start a new game with the 16.3 database (i.e. Winter Transfers) then you only need to put them in 1630.
Two quick questions on this

1. I noticed that the existing dbc inc and edt files have other named files in them that are not in the pack - Do you keep these files and overwrite the existing ones with the same name. Im guessing as yes - but then I noticed some are called licensing dbc etc - so not sure if you kept these in or took them out with the pack been a licence fix

2. When I loaded it up I noticed that the Euro cup names and Champs Cup names had not changed in my game - however these competitions had started.
When I started a new game they had - so when do they change

Thanks

1. Removing those particular files is the whole point of this download, so don't keep them All you need to do is remove the whole dbc, edt and lnc folders (and not their contents) installed by SI and replace them with the ones from this download.

2. There are separate files for each database (i.e. one folder for the default database as it comes with the game and another for the winter transfer update). If you started a save game with the default database but didn't install the fix there (as I suspect is the case here), then the game will proceed with the default data (i.e. the non-licensed version). Basically, the lnc folders need to be replaced for the 1600, 1601 and 1630 folders for the changes to be sure to apply in both new and saved games with either database option. Not sure if I've explained it well, but you just need to do the underlined text and the competition names should be changed in your existing save-game too

Hope this helps
Any ideas on when this will be updated for FM17, as the Beta is out tonight? Appreciate all the work that has gone into this, thank you.

I've already done the groundwork for the file, but of course I need to see the beta first before releasing it.

As with every patch in every version, I aim to have the file out by the evening of the release - and today is no different
