FM2017 Real Names and German National Team Fix File v2.1 for FM17.3.0 [03/03/2017]
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

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

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.

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 5 of the 1700, 1701. 1710, 1712 and 1730 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 (with 5 files rather than 4 as in this screenshot. 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.
http://i518.photobucket.com/albums/u344/maltamons/real%20name%20fix%20fm17.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 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
Got it to work now
Hi

I installed the game and installed all the files as instructed above before starting a new game but german club names and spanish club names are incorrect. I am playing FMT so i dont know if that makes a difference.

«This comment has been edited»
Does this disable leader-boards and if so is there a fix to that?


Up
@noisy79 I've taken on board your somewhat over-harsh criticism and amended the installation instructions accordingly, but I unwittingly overwrote your original post

«This comment has been edited»


How to make friends and influence people.

The guide is perfectly fine. I've followed this guide since FM14 and never had any issues either following it or getting the Real name fix to work
any help would be appreciated i dont have a steam folder inside program files. my steam folder is located inside program files (x86). i tried it from there but no joy

I believe any editor data files will disable leader-boards, but I stand to be corrected. Not much else that can be done from my end, I'm afraid.

The game must be installed somewhere, so they're definitely somewhere on your system. Do a search on your hard-disk for files with extensions of .dbc or .lnc
Should I be able to see names of real journalists etc.? Got the file working in my current save (downloaded the fix on the early hours of Saturday) but having done a quick search of the Liverpool Echo and the Guardian I can't see any real world journalists. Everything else is working perfectly as always as far as I can see.
@Maleven , I wasn't given permission by the owner to include the British Media and Journalists file in this download, sadly.
hey mons. what is the Fifa world player award about. it stops in 2009/ this hasn't been on previous versions
Also, where is the FIFA World Coach of the year award. its in the editor but i cant find it in game. i dont think its ever been there

«This comment has been edited»
Is this in a save-game or a new game?

If in a save game, read and follow the instructions in the first post for them to display. Doing so will however mean nicknames for these clubs are lost.

If in a new game, you need to make sure that the dbc/permanent folder in your 1700, 1701 AND 1710 folders is like this: http://i518.photobucket.com/albums/u344/maltamons/dbc%20permanent%20folder%20fm17.png~original

and that you have the editor data file in place.


Hey, I did that (the instructions in the first post) but it didn't work. Brazilian teams are still with that 3 letter thing. Any ideas?.

To mons: No problem deleting my post and sorry for the "harsh words", didnt mean to offend. Grateful for your work. Thanks for implementing my changes, glad i was able to help.

Can I use these files for FMT version?I am confused with the first post where you state that if we play FMT there is a workaround using notepad. I have bought both FMT 2017 Windows version for PC and FMT 2017 android version for high end tablets. I have added to the PC version some extra files (and i have deleted other files) to the database folder for obvious reasons, but i have not done the same for the tablet version. Will i have any problems when cross saving between the two and playing the game?
I dont know (as you can understand) how i can download the files to my andoid tablet and copy paste them into the specific folders. Do i have to use specific app? Αny help would be greatly appreciated.

This year, the Ballon d'Or won't be given by FIFA as has happened since 2009, and the previous FIFA award has been re-instated. This is the first one.

I have no idea where the world coach of the year can be found, sorry

Once you start a save game, any changes you make to editor data files are not taken into consideration in that save, so don't worry about that. I can't really help you much with android tablet file installation as I quite simply don't play the game in that manner Perhaps some other kind soul can assist.

I have tried the workaround in FMT and it doesn't change any of the club names. Also in notepad I had to replace #"CLUB not #CLUB although it didn't make any difference. Do you think there will be a solution for people playing FMT or will we be stuck with the fake names? Thanks for your help

Hm, that sucks. Thanks for the reply.
Thanks a lot but I found that players in reserve team (e.g. U23, etc) in Germany clubs are grey. Could it be solved?

Can you send me the amended lnc file please? Because if you make the changes properly, I was under the impression they worked in FMT too. Also, did you put the same file in the 1700, 1701 AND 1710 lnc folders?




Thanks a lot but I found that players in reserve team (e.g. U23, etc) in Germany clubs are grey. Could it be solved?

That's got nothing to do with this file, I'm afraid, since the only German club licensing restrictions in the game are related to the names and not to the players at German clubs. If you use a smaller database and/or don't have the German leagues loaded, then it stands to reason that reserve teams in Germany will not have any players loaded

Mons. The FIFA World Player Award that is in the game never has a winner. I sent my manager on holiday for ten seasons and the award has never been won

Then that is probably a bug in the game which will hopefully be fixed by SI in any upcoming patches.

With your file i have a save with 4 world awards:
ballon d'or - only a winner is chosen, no 2nd or third place
fifa world team of the year - working as you would expect
fifa world player of the year - no player has ever won this award in game. last winner 2009
world soccer magazine player of the year - 1st 2nd and 3rd places

Without your file (vanilla version of game, no added files):
world golden ball (ballon d'or) - 1st, 2nd and 3rd places,
world team of the year (fifa world team of the year) - working as you would expect
word player of the year (world soccer magazine player of the year) - 1st, 2nd and 3rd places

In the vanilla version of the game there is only 3 world awards, your file has 4. The vanilla version has no award named FIFA World Player of the year.
I may be wrong here but your file seems to have added the FIFA World player of the year award which is not working correctly and changed the way the ballon d'or is ranked.

I have not added any awards whatsoever to the game; all I did was rename awards already existing in the database through the lnc file

Thanks for bringing this up; I'll investigate this tonight when I'm at home and check what's wrong. Whatever it is, it should be save-compatible.

No problem Mons. I hope that did not come across as criticism to your file. Just making you aware of what may be a slight issue
Just been on the SI Forums. The FIFA World Player of the Year award is not working the way it should and is under review
I removed the date the award is announced and now it is working fine

Thought it'll likely be something from SI's side. Hopefully it'll be solved reasonably soon.

You seem to like experimenting with the game files, like I do , so if you come across anything which you think should be modified then please tell me about it and I'll rectify it accordingly - I'd have no problem with it. This is a one-man job, really, and there's only so much I can capture, especially as I have other FM projects on the go at the same time - so anybody who can provide me any info, no matter how straight-forward it may appear to you, please don't hesitate
Hi. The names in the Dutch leagues are not updated yet in this file.

This is how it should be;

Topklasse -> Derde Divisie
Topklasse Zaterdag - > Derde Divisie Zaterdag
Topklasse Zondag -> Derde Divisie Zondag

Okay, thanks for the reply. Anything to do with our notoriously stringent defamation laws by any chance?

Not really, it's just the case that the author wanted to retain the "rights" to the file and that he felt these would be lost if they were included as part of this download.
