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

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:

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.

I can assure you there's nothing wrong with it. Probably it's a false positive from your anti-virus. Which site are you downloading it from?


I tried every option and i use only Windows Defender/Essential at Windows 10. When i download the older versions it gives no problem but the latest release gives malware detection somehow.

It's completely virus free, not sure what else I can say...

Send me a PM and I'll send it as an attachment, maybe that works...
nothing wrong with file mate

I am running norton 360 and there are no issues at all with the download

Yesterday evening, the user sent me a PM saying that he managed to download the file using another site mirror. As suspected, the virus error was a false positive...
Still not working for me. It's still showing premier division and all. Help!

Have you applied the files for every folder indicated in the installation instructions? Do the 5 lnc folders contained the three files displayed in the screenshot in the OP?

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" ""

After loading the save game the changes not working any more. What to do? Chance the file in editor data?

You'll have to be a bit more specific. What changes did you do? Can you upload screenshots of your game to display clearly what you mean?

Changing the contents of the editor data file won't affect save games but only new games.

Thanks. I've sorted it out.
afternoon guys, just got a Mac and trying to sort using this file out, everything else like the logos etc are working fine yet I'm having trouble with this file. Where does it need to go.. thanks in advance..

There's locations for Macs given in the installation instructions, do they not work?

I have to say guys. Mons is a top bloke(sorry if you're female) he's gone out his way to help me with my Game trying to get the U18s Leagues with correct names the Cups too.

It's a pleasure to have someone like him on here. If I could buy you a beer IRL I would.

Haha, after a brief rummage downstairs, I can confirm I am still a bloke

Sorry I couldn't get to the bottom of it
Everything is working now except the German national team and the Brazilian clubs are still in 3 letter words. Help anyone?

If in the middle of a save game, the German national team will only be populated with real players once squads are called up. Also, the changes for Brazilian club names will only appear if this file is applied before starting a new game.

Hi, I've noticed all the Portugese names have changed for example Benfica is no SLB. is there a reason for this?
Hi, I've noticed all the Portugese names have changed for example Benfica is no SLB. is there a reason for this?

In one of the previous release, I made a change to Portuguese club names so that they do not lose their nicknames. If you applied this file before this minor update, you would need to undertake the procedure in the first post for Portuguese clubs only - a matter of seconds and it would be save game compatible

Sorted, cheers
I am also getting the virus notification with the latest version.. tried all three mirrors, very strange!

alperaltun, who made a very similar post earlier on, sent me a PM saying that he managed to download it from uploaded.net eventually...
me again, I've recently upgraded to a new Mac and I'm having trouble even locating the folders to delete. if anyone can help I'd be hugely grateful. I don't know if apple have changed the way things work but it looks like steam isn't even installed when it definitely is.

EDIT
did some digging and it appears the pathway has changed, easiest way to find the folder is to go to the library via 'go' and navigate through the folders listed.

In case the author of this is still reading:

I realized after applying your patch, the game allows 4 subs in the German Cup. In reality there are only 3 subs allowed just like in the league. Would it be possible to fix this?
Thanks

I have made no edits to German Cup rules (or any other competition) and it's definitely nothing to do with these files. Either it's a bug in the game (in which case contact SI) or it's something within other editor data files you have downloaded (in which case contact the respective creator).

Hi,

Do I have a way to change HSV for Hamburg or TFC for Toulouse and EAG for Guingamp by myself ? How can I do that ?

Thanks a lot.
