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.
http://i518.photobucket.com/albums/u344/maltamons/real%20names%20fix%20fm16%202.png~original



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
thanks for that ldb
Great work, as always, but is there a way to open this up in the editor just so I can remove the sponsors from some of the league names? (just a personal preference)
AWESOME!!!! Thanks so much!!!
Hey Guys,

Issuetime here

When i start the game , i save the game and restart to get the real names but after couple days (in the game i mean) the fake names returned again.....

Whats wronggggg??

I changed all inc and edt folders as required

Peace

The competition names can be changed in the middle of a save-game by opening, and editing, the lnc files with Notepad. You can then edit them to your heart's content

What's wrong with the short name being Seraing Utd and the long name being Seraing United?
The competition names can be changed in the middle of a save-game by opening, and editing, the lnc files with Notepad. You can then edit them to your heart's content


Hi!

Changing the Inc files does not work for me. I want to change two things: Borussia Mönchengladbach to be called Mönchengladbach and not simply Gladbach. And the second being Dresden to be Dynamo Dresden, just like Werder Bremen has Werder, Dresden should have Dynamo. Dresden isn't even in your files at all, so I changed the name in the editor instead. But, I've tried to change Gladbach's short name to Mönchengladbach in Notepad++ but it doesn't have any effect in the game.
This didn't work on the latest 16.2, only when I started a new game but it wanted to use 16.1? Any ideas please?

Thanks.

You'll note that I said that "competition names can be changed in the middle of a save-game" and not club names. Due to the way these files work, once you start a new game with the editor data dbc files in place, then any changes made in these files CANNOT be changed again using lnc files.

Regarding the choice of names, I have used the exact same names as in the FM14 database, which was the last time that the German teams had their real names.

Thanks.

What exactly do you mean that it wanted to use 16.1? Did an error message display? How were you aware it did not work?
Hi mons,

I've updated and included some new competitions of Peru. Hope you can include them for the next update. Thanks.

You find the entry/ies you don't like, you select it, you press the delete button on your keyboard.

Voila!


and how do i find them to do that?
and how do i find them to do that?

You open the file with notepad and scroll or use the search function to find the entry or entries you want to. Then you delete them.

It's really not that hard to do, and I'm feeling like we've been going round in circles having the same conversation for a while, now...
I extracted all the folders you have mentioned before, but i still have problem with players' names. What should i do??

I'm not sure if it's been done but I think OM short name should be changed to Marseille.
