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

OPEN

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

OPEN

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.

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:

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
You're right, it's not possible to look for media sources by nation as that field is not available in media source filtering.

By way of a workaround, I searched for Amsterdam and subsequently managed to narrow down the Dutch media sources list to the range in the attached screenshot.

As an aside, there are no Dutch journalists in the file.


Thanks for letting me know about the journalists, Mons.

So, if all Dutch media are between those numbers (with succesful and failed edits) that makes it a lot easier for me to see if I want to add or change things.
Thanks very much!
Mons, can I give you a list with Dutch journalists, tv-analists and media (websites, magazines, tv-shows, radio) to add to the media file?
What do you need to know about them?

I'm afraid I really don't have the time to add them all myself.

If you're willing to create a separate Dutch media sources and journalists file including the above details, then I'd be more than happy to add them to this download

Have a look at the current file for guidance on which fields to add/edit and how. It's reasonably straight-forward and I'm more than happy to assist if required, but let's continue via PM so as not to clog this thread
OK. I'll do just that. Thanks.
Hiii,

I have no plans to release a new version of the file for the time being. However, I'll take a note of this and see if the official January transfer window update changes this in the official database and, if not, I'll include it in this file
@mons Mark, my Brazilian team names seem to of reverted back to the 3 letter abbreviation.

Any ideas?

They probably recreated themselves after one of the recent official updates. Can you check the 4 data/permanent folders (i.e. 1700, 1701, 1710 and 1712) and delete any files other than the ones displayed in the screenshot in the main post?
Update needed for today's update 17.2.1 ? Or the actual file works?

Which players?

These files do not make any changes to player data. Sometimes this happens when people are running a pirated version...

@zbladzg, No idea and it's certainly nothing to do with these files.
Is there anything we need to do with the new update 17.2.1?

Not as far as I'm aware, no.
mons it seems like you forgot to add Basconia to the name changes. It's still called A. Bilbao C. Not a big deal to change it myself, but just something you might want to do if there's a new version coming at some point.

I'm at work so can't check the editor data file, but it is in the lnc file as follows:


#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 102014 "C.D. Basconia" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 102014 "Basconia" ""
As a rule of thumb, I only add code to the lnc file after I input the respective entry into the editor data file, but I'll check in case I somehow forgot to include.

If it is indeed in place, this change will not take effect until you start a new game, but you knew that already...

@Jubez , just remembered to check and the name was indeed corrected in the most-recently released version of the file. Are you sure you're running the latest version?

Yes I downloaded it. I had manually changed it and after I updated it reverted back to the unchanged name so I had to manually do it again.
Does this work on FM Touch as well?

The media and journalists files won't work, I believe.

There's a workaround to get the club name changes in the first post, which you would need to do to get the club name changes.
