FM2017 Real Names and German National Team Fix File v1.4 for FM17.2.0 [17/12/2016] Installation Instructions
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 and when the full game comes out 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.

Some of these changes, ESPECIALLY THE CLUB NAMES, may not apply in FMT or in existing save-games. There's a workaround for that in the first post.


The sortitoutsi real names fix changes the instances of fake names in Football Manager 2017 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 and Japanese National teams don'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, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and French clubs to circumvent licensing restrictions. It also adds real-life media and journalists, encompassing most 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 the files in this paragraph to work, however, you will need to start a new game.


Follow the below instructions to install this version of this file

STEP 1.
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2017\data\db\1700
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2017\data\db\1701
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2017\data\db\1710
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2017\data\db\1712
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders

Notes:
\Program Files (x86)\
could be
\Program Files\
depending on your set up.

Mac
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2017 / data / db / 1700 
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2017 / data / db / 1701 
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN

DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2017 / data / db / 1712 
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders

You can find these folders 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.

You can get to the Library folder by simply selecting Go from the top bar and holding "alt" key - The Library folder suddenly appears on the drop down

For Mac Lion users, the Library folder will be hidden. Use this link to find out how to show it.

Slightly more detail in this post

DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN

DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders



STEP 2:
COPY the dbc, edt and Inc folders from the downloaded pack

STEP 3:
PASTE them into each of your respective folders mentioned in step 1.

These are what the folder structure should look like in all 3 of the 1700, 1701 and 1710 folders:

http://i518.photobucket.com/albums/u344/maltamons/lnc%20folder%20fm17.png~original

STEP 4:
COPY the 4 files located in the EDITOR DATA folder in the downloaded pack

STEP 5
PASTE to
\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017\editor data
This should be what your editor data folder looks like now. There may initially be a config.xml file in this folder and it can be safely overwritten; 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 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.
Discussion
If you have already started a save-game or you are playing FMT or you are playing the beta and wish to change German, Spanish, Italian and French club names to the correct ones, there is a workaround. However, you will lose the club nicknames.

Open the City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc file with Notepad (on Windows) and TextEdit (on Mac). All the changes I've made in the editor data file are included in this file, however they are preceded by a hashtag (#) which makes the lnc file ignore any text following it.

You can remove the hashtags from in front of any of the "CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" and "CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" codes which you wish to change, and this will display these changes in your save game.

For Notepad, all you need to do is: Select the edit menu, click the replace option, type
#"CLUB
in the first field and
"CLUB
in the second and clicking replace all. Then save and close. Shouldn't take more than 3 seconds if you do it right

http://i518.photobucket.com/albums/u344/maltamons/lnc%20club%20name%20fix.png~original


Basically, instead of


#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern München" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern" ""
you should have


"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern München" ""
"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern" ""

Download now -> no file

Following the instructions exactly as described. The files downloaded should go in both folders 1700 and 1701 right? Anyways, when starting a new game the league names for Germany is still 1 division and so on, not Bundesliga.

That's definitely wrong. Can you upload a screenshot of either of the lnc folders?

You can use this mirror file: https://www.sendspace.com/file/tcpt69

Screenshot

This is how it looks like in the folder (Inc + the 2 subfolders insde) without your files.

I have exactly the same issue. Tried the second Bundesliga and there are still some names wrong (Berlin Köpenick for example).

Edit:
It's working, it's just an error in the first display, everything is properly displayed when picking any nation or club.

That's not how it should be now after applying the download. The new lnc folder should contain the three files from this download.

For the club names, I'm afraid it's not possible to fix them in the usual way in the beta. There's a workaround in the OP for it.
Champions League etc is fine for me, so is "Fußball-Bundesliga" etc. Only thing still broken are the club names in Germany as this remains as "Bayern" and so on. Any ideas? Is this really tied to this "club name changes file" and therefor hindering us to actually keep our save games after Beta if we want the correct names?

Edit: Nevermind, will try to workaround from the first post for now

It says we should delete dbc, edt and Inc from the folders 1700 and 1701. Then copy the files from the downloaded file into dbc, edt and Inc into folders 1700 and 1701? The downloaded files only includes 3 folders, dbc, edt and Inc.

That's right. The files in your screenshots are the ones in the default installation and not those in this download

This is how it should look like if you do it correctly.

You asked for a screenshot of the Inc folders, you didnt mention if you wanted me to add your files or not.

Anyways, i should delete the folders dbc, edt and Inc in the folders 1700 and 1701 right? Then i unzip your files, and copy the files first to folder 1700, then i copy again into 1701 right?

Also some of the spanish teams doesn't have the right name now.
Ok, looks like it working now. When the real name didnt show up on the New Game section i thought it didnt work. But started a new game and the real names are there

Thanks!

Spanish club names are fake / wrong. Is this a known issue, and not included in this file? Thanks for releasing it so quickly!
Schalke is also still shown as Gelsenkirchen in the game all other teams look good. Thanks for the effort

Edit: just read the rest of the comments and saw the workaround.

It is not working the best. The name of competition bundesliga is work, but names of clubs arent good. Any solutions to fix that?

thank you

I can't fix it in the old method as the game is still in beta and the it isn't reading editor data files necessary for club name changes. As an alternative, you can read the first post for a workaround...
Hi!

I wonder if it's possible to fix the spanish club names myself by just writing the code to the Inc files with the real long and short names and a proper club id?

Hmmm, this is not something I had noticed before, so thanks for pointing it out. This issue affects the top and second tiers, as well as the regional third tier (which has 80 clubs). I'm copying over the club long and short names manually from the FM16 editor and I've collected the names for the top 2 divisions already. I hope to have the file amended in the next couple of days

Yes, but it's something already in hand. Although if you want to send me anything you collect, then all the better
