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.

you are the man, mons! thx for all your effort in the past and present!
so there are two olders to dleete this year
I'm not sure exactly why at this stage, but yes. Putting the files in both locations is the safest way to ensure this download works
cool thanx it has worked
Thanks Mons, really appreciate all the hard work that you did for us
thanks mons, quick question the german national team are still greyed despite schalke having the right name so im not sure whats happened there? i put both edt/inc folders in 4.0/4.0.1 and put the fm folder in my doc/si/fm/fm data editor - they are ticked when i start a new game also
If i already started a game with the beta files and i delete those ones and paste the new one, everything should be working right??

Thanks for your work!!

Regards!

Remember, first DELETE the old folders in 1600/1601 THEN put the ones from this download. Merging them will retain some folders which need to be deleted to make this file work properly.

Yes, basically

Thanks for the licence file, great work.

Although I put the relevant files into editor data folder, just competition colors (i.e. Europa League with yellow-red color) do not work for me. I don't know why. Everything is fine except this.
i deleted the edt/inc folders the only folders left in there are

1601_fm
1601_fmc
dbc

then i put your edt/inc folders in there. what am i doing wrong

Got it working in the end, I deleted it all and re did it. No idea why it wasnt working in the first place

Any chance these fixes can made available through mediafire?

Thanks
Help!

I made a custom database that shifted a bunch of teams around, I put some Austrian, Swiss, Dutch and Danish teams in to the German league system and replaced them in their home leagues with clubs from the 'Lower Leagues' so they were still playable. It was working fine.

I then realised that when FM upgraded to the full version from the Beta, my Real Names & German Team fix had been removed so I re-installed.

Now my custom database doesn't work because I'm guessing one of the files in the edt/lnc folders is overriding my own database changes. Now when I try and start a game it won't load Austria, Switzerland, Holland and Denmark because it's looking for clubs that have been moved. (Oddly, Germany is still fine.)

Is it possible for me to remove one of the files and go back to using my custom database? I don't mind too much if competition names aren't 100% accurate but I really do want the German national team to function correctly.
is it right that the German Bundesliga is called German Division and also the Champions League is called different? Did everything as mentioned above and had also no problems with the FM15

Thx for help!

Looks like you hadn't installed this download correctly. You need to place them in the 1601 folder as well.



Is there anyway to edit these files? like i am ocd about Schalke being called Schalke 04 etc, i just want to do a few minor edits.

The German club name changes were already in the beta version of this file. If they weren't appearing for you, then you must have made a mistake when installing. If you'd started a save-game before waiting for v1.0 of this file, then read the first post for simple instructions on how to display the corrected club name changes.




Could anyone help with what to do on a Mac OS after Step 2?

The folder path instructions only seem to be for Windows from Step 3 onwards.

Much appreciated.

I don't have a Mac so can't really help, but surely the steps are broadly similar whether it's on Mac or PC. Download this file, delete the SI edt and lnc folders then replace them with the ones from this download. Then put the FM16 Real Names Fix Files from sortitoutsi.net v1.0 folder in your Documents>editor data folder or equivalent. That's it really...



Great work man, thanks a lot.
But the competetion colours does not seen in the game. Also I try the change the colors in editor myself, but it is still the same. What it is about?

Thanks for the licence file, great work.

I don't know why some people seem to have this issue. It's all working fine on mine I'll investigate further...




Hello from Greece,and congrats for the amazing job that your doing to our special game.I would like to tell a small mistake if you can fix it in the next team fix.
Well at the Greek Superleague the team Olympiakos is not spelled like that in greek ,the correct form in greek is "Ολυμπιακός" please cop and paste it as it is!!thank you in advance!!!

Erm, that's exactly the way that it's typed in the lnc file




Any chance these fixes can made available through mediafire?

Thanks

I don't have a mediafire account, but I've uploaded it to MEGA. I'll add this mirror to the OP as well.

I don't see any reason why the edt and lnc files should conflict with what you've done tbh. But without seeing your file, I can't really tell. I suspect it's the club name changes.dbc editor data file which is causing the conflict since I renamed the German B teams and I imagine you moved them to another country. Try running your file and removing the above-mentioned file and see whether it works...
Like I said, it still thinks Germany is playable. The German reserve teams still exist they've just been removed from all competitions and they're still in Germany.

What I did was swap Feyenoord, Ajax, PSV, Malmo, Copenhagen, Basel, Zurich, Grashoppers, Young Boys, Sturm Graz and Austria Wien for teams in their respective "Lower Leagues." Then I set all of those clubs to Nation: Germany and Continental Cup nation: Germany and left their Based: as their original nation.

I then made a brand new German league system, including those teams, with the original German leagues set to extinct and all other clubs left without a league.

This worked fine, I loaded up a game and started, then realised I'd forgotten to re-install this fix. So I reinstalled the fix and went to start a new game and now I can't, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden and Holland are no longer playable - but Germany is.

Have you made changes to the reserve teams of the above clubs that may be causing a conflict? It was working previously with your .dbc files and my .dbc files. It's something in the edt/lnc files that it doesn't seem to like?
Hold the phone, I have to apologize, I might have found the answer and it could very well be something I just did to the database after installing your fix.
Thanks for this, just wondering, what is the big difference between BETA and 1.0 because i made edits in the beta version and don't want to swap it, is there any essential major game changing differences?

Also if i downloaded the new version, could i keep my edited version of 'Club name changes' (because thats what i edited) and use the other new files?

I have noticed a bug that any player in the German national team, on the team view their ability and potential ability disappears, its happened to me with Mesut Ozil and Serge Gnabry, but didnt happen to Per Mertesacker because hes not been called up.

Like this...

Ok so i got impatient, updated and started a new game, and it did fix the ability bug.
I used the beta files when the full game was out, do i really need to use this 1.0 release? Is there something new?
I cannot delete the original files as i cant find them. Done all that you said. Put the download into the correct Editor File but again, load up a new game but no luck. What am i doing wrong? Cheers
With danger of sounding incredibly stupid; I'm struggling to find the installation folder. I followed the path 'USERNAME \ Library \ Application Support \ Steam \ SteamApps \ Common \ Football Manager 2016 \ Data \ db \ 1600' and there is no Steam folder in the Application Support folder.

Just wondering what I can do to get this working? Is there an alternative path I can follow?
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2016\data\db\1601

Its quite simple folks.....sorry but

Is this a BRAND NEW game? Fix won't work on a saved game. You have to start a brand new game.

There's only some relatively minor changes - the beta file is good enough to be getting along with.

At which point does the indicated path not correspond with the path on your system?

Perhaps you have the equivalent folder in your C (or home) drive...

I'm afraid it looks like you have not installed the file correctly. Can you upload a screenshot of your 1601>lnc folder?

I'm not sure what you're asking here...
Thank you very much for your help! great work!!!

Now it works! The only thing which is still not working is that there are fantasy names in the German National Team. Could you maybe guess how to fix this?
