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.

I forgot to mention I'm a Mac user...
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?

If you applied the files from this download AFTER you started a new game, then you will have to wait until the next time that national teams are called up for the real names to appear.

Make sure that you delete the all and greek folders within the lnc folders, as well.



Hello!

I mean like this one but on fm16
Link

That's got nothing to do with this file, and you'll have to ask for help with the guy who created that file.



I forgot to mention I'm a Mac user...

I don't have a Mac, but you have to look for the equivalent folder on your system. It must be there...
every year I use this patch and is perfect, but that after isntalo the FM does not open, I get a error message, restore the original's when the game back to work. someone went through it to help me?
Sup Mons. big thanks for making all our games way better. (like every year)

could you in a future update change the dutch translation of the Belgium supercup into Belgische supercup

it's always in French: supercup de Belgique.

thx

I'm afraid you must not have installed it correctly. Can you tell me what error message was displayed?

It's actually in the lnc file with that Dutch text already

Mons,
i looked into is.
You have
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 1301403 "Belgische Supercup" "Dutch"
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 1301403 "Supercup de Belgique" ""

Its that 2th sentence which brings the name in French: you should change that in Belgische Supercup also
I keep getting "Could not open the archive, may be damaged" - I've tried downloading the file a few times, and also tried a few different extraction tools. Any ideas please?

I see. I've changed it accordingly for the next version.

Hmm, that's strange. Haven't heard that before with this file. I'm attaching it to this post for your convenience.
What program would you recommend using to edit the files with in order to go through the steps in the 1st post to sort out the German naming issues? Tried Notepad and I'm just getting gobbledygook coming up.

Hi guys, I have FM2016 running on a Mac, but I don't know which program to use to edit the files. The standard text editor doesn't read these files correctly. Can anyone point towards a program I can use to edit these files or upload a file with the changes made in the first post, so I can use it for my (planned) FMT game?
Thanks!

You can only use Notepad or a similar program to read the edt and lnc files. For the dbc files, you need to import them through the pre-game editor.

As per the above

To clarify, apart from the edt and lnc folders, in both of the above sections, there should also be 3 other folders named 160x_fm, 160x_fc and dbc, with x being the number of the respective folder. Is this correct at your end?

I'm running Windows 10 too, and have no problem accessing the Steamapps folder, which I have here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps

Same location as it was in Windows 8.1, which I upgraded from to Windows 10. Presume it will be in same location even it you did a clean install of Win 10.
Thanks mons,

Your Real Names Fix is my number 1 essential download every year
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 have no idea how to download from this link. Can you help me, please? Thanks
The 3 letter names for the Champions League and Europa League are still ECC & EC can you change them please?? and if possible change europa league colour scheme it is the same as champions league atm.
Great work though!!! thanks very much
Sorry my bad the 3 letter names are correct
Not sure what I have done wrong. I have just started a new game maybe thats it but as far as I can tell I have followed the instructions to the letter and when I look in competitions the champions lg is still the euro cup or whatever

I deleted the inc and edit folders from the 1600 folder, then extracted the same named folders from the download in winrar to the 1600 folder thereby replacing them

I opened up the Sports I folder and in the editor data folder I extracted the real names fix folder from winrar into there.

I then saved my game ,, exit and re-started my game,, went into the world menu and checked and the euro cup aint been replaced by champions lg etc,,,, do I have to wait until I start a new save or have I missed something????
Thanks Mons for this yearly essential update! Seeing that most changes only work with a new save, and I have not started my save yet.. Do you have any idea when the next version of this file is released ? Knowing that will result if I start my new save now or, when it's only a couple of dates until the new update, I will wait a bit longer until starting it... Would be a pity if I start my save now and then a new version gets released

Thanks again!

The instructions in the OP and the download itself are quite clear. You have to apply the files to the 1600 AND 1601 folder. That's all there is to it, and happily these changes are save-game compatible

I have no intention of releasing a new version of this file in the immediate future, so crack on with starting a new game
Cheers Mons,, don't know how I missed that first time around,, was rather obvious when looked back later on lol,,, but cheers anyway all working good
Click the download through your browser link.

When I do that and asks me to save the file manually my screen freezes. I'm on a Mac, I don't know if that makes any difference.

I am on a PC so wouldn't begin to know how to help

Can you not try to download it from someone else's computer?
thanks so much

notify me when updated?
Near the download link, there's a download button doing that exact thing...
I have downloaded some kit packs. and some of the shirts doesn't work. is it possible it's because of his real name fix, if the fix change the names of the Clubs and then the kit pack cannot find the Club..? i dont know how it's Work . .
and one thing more. I think Union Berlin has a long name.
I have been getting a lot of crash dumps and after following advice on SI forums the only thing that seems to work is reverifying the cache (which replaces the files that are removed by the real names/german team fix here). Is anyone else having these problems as it sort of ruins the game having Germany greyed out and fake names all over the shop?

Thanks!
