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.

Thanks for the work. It helps!

Anyway, i still found a minor problem as some league's awards didn't change.

Here is the picture. Thanks again mons!

Very simple. It looks like those awards were never added to the file. I'll have a look at what's missing and add them for the next version of the FM17 file. You can safely use the lnc files from that version in FM16 without any issues

Does the Inc files from FM17 version work in FM16?
Does the Inc files from FM17 version work in FM16?

Yes, they do

They are backward-compatible so they'll even work in FM13

Sorry mons, one last quick question. Only the Inc files or the whole pack?

Only the lnc's. Otherwise, use the files from this download rather than the FM17 ones.
Do I need to erase the ''dbc'' and ''edt'' from the 1600 and 1601 folders too?

Or only from the 1630?

Thanks

And I need to paste it only on the 1630 folder, right? (Your files)

Oh, and one more thing. I had to desinstall FM because my ''editor files'' was grey in the game (no access). Tomorrow I'll install it again. I have 3 questions:

1- Can a file in editor data give problems to the other ones?
2- Can graphics or skins give problems?
3- Do you know a possible solution if, after installing again, it continues happening?

P.S.: Thanks for the help. And the files, all of them are in the right place. I've been installing things on FM for years

You need to add the files from this download in the 1600, 1601 and 1630 folder. It's clear enough in the OP

I have no idea what you mean by editor data files being grey in game, perhaps a screenshot will help.

My answers in bold.

It is contained in the lnc folder within the download file, no?
Ok, managed to sort all issues but the club names. I still have Gelsenkirchen club name..
How to change it to normal names please?

Have you done all the steps in the readme file and in the main post? Have you placed the editor data files in the right place or did you start the save game before placing the files there?
Yes, I did.
I was able to see the Champions League name is correct; but not the German clubs.
But after I Google it more, I found additional editor files, put them as well - and now have it all.
Cheers.

You didn't need to Google, they're in this download, the readme, the main post etc...

Anyhow, good to see you managed to fix it
