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

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.

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
clubs, brazilian teams still have 3 letter names, spanish & german clubs still have incorrect names, too.

editor data folder has been installed, i think, unless I've done something wrong.

Did you install the fix after starting a save game? If yes, you need to do the workaround in the first post.

i did, but then i've decided to start a new game to implement the changes. leagues have changed but when selecting club to manage, they're still the same.
the folders contain subfolders named 1701_fm (example), will they need to be deleted?

No, leave them there.

Can I have a screenshot of where you installed the editor data files pls?

Strange, never had this before. Can I have a screenshot of the error message? Are you trying to extract the file with WinRar?

No, just following the instructions of deleting the folders as above and it keeps saying need permission from admin?

Can you not insert your user details when prompted or, alternatively, change your User Permissions accordingly? Not sure what I can do as it seems to be an issue with your setup rather than this file...
If I want this to work on FM16...What I have to copy?

All the folders and editor data? Only lnc? Only editor?

Thanks

Yes, it does. How can you tell it isn't working? Can you please upload screenshots of the locations you placed the files in?

Nope I've not been able to fix it yet and it just won't work at all, for some reason It won't let me delete the folders mentioned?

Can I get screenshots of the folders you're trying to delete?

One way around it could be to delete the file contents and put the ones from this download instead.

Have you tried deleting the contents of each folder separately? Or even deleting the folders one by one (instead of together as you are doing)?

I know it's not related to this download, but just to let you know, claassen's league files all have to be inside the main editor data folder, and not inside sub-folders, as they won't work in this way.

I am assuming the dbc and edt folders are the same in all the other folders. Everything looks fine there.

I still don't know, though, what isn't working and whether you applied these files before or after having started your save-game.
Steaua Bucharest changed name to FCSB (http://www.naharnet.com/stories/en/225563-steaua-bucharest-forced-to-change-name-after-court-case)
Arizona United changed name to Phoenix Rising FC (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phoenix_Rising_FC)

is this possible to change ? (=

Hi, I have no editor data folder in the downloaded folders pack to copy as it only have the permanent and INC folders,
and it also does say to delete all 3 folders from 1700,1701,1710 and 1712 but to paste new ones only in the first three folders - is that correct?
From where I can download the editor data folder or the complete pack?
Hi, I have no editor data folder in the downloaded folders pack to copy as it only have the permanent and INC folders,
Where are you downloading this file from then? Should definitely be included

and it also does say to delete all 3 folders from 1700,1701,1710 and 1712 but to paste new ones only in the first three folders - is that correct?
Put it in the other one as well

From where I can download the editor data folder or the complete pack?
