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

depending on your set up.

Mac

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.

I can't really tell. Could also be an issue with other editor data files you may have downloaded and which may have some issues in them.


I used it with and without a data transfer update..same result

Changing editor data files in the middle of a save game makes no difference whatsoever, so unless you are starting a new game, the above changes you are undertaking are irrelevant in that context.

You say "No league stats from the swiss raiffeisen super league..I don't play the swiss league but I loan players sometimes there and now it's like the league doesn't exist.." - what does that mean exactly? It's not clear whether you're referring to clubs not existing, players not appearing etc.

I was reffering to the games played by the players in the swiss league (when you hit History on a player it shows stats like appearances, goals, etc)..in every league it shows this except the swiss league

That's strange. And this is for all players in all teams? Could be a bug in FM itself tbh.

Yeah..only for the players from the swiss league...Could be a bug in FM..but it's strange that after a month from the update no one's noticed it...

Sorry I can't be of more assistance, perhaps you may have more luck posting in the bugs section of the official forum to see if it's a known issue.

Posted on the official forum..it seems they're aware of this bug...
The only "solution" for this i found is when starting a new game to add the swiss league and change the mode to view only..

If you verified integrity of game cache, you recreated some files which were deleted when installing this update. You need to re-apply this download. This may not solve the Brazilian club name issue in this save game, though, I'm afraid, but it's best to have it in place for when/if you start another save.
Yeah now i see that files again ..nothing new game..

I will have to check to be sure, but youth leagues are not included in the default game database and therefore can't be changed through lnc files. I stand to be corrected, however.
Hii mate. I don't know if the correction is need.

Those were the official names of Real Sociedad in the FM16 database; I copied them over and have no plans to change them for now...

Players contracted to Japanese clubs are not in the game for licensing reasons. The only way to get Japanese players in the game is to download an editor data file, such as this.

Use the search function and look for files with the extension .lnc or for folders named Football Manager 2017. The game must be installed somewhere, so it's just a case of finding where it is installed.

I don't have a Mac, I'm afraid, so can't really offer any practical help.

Try looking for the Steam installation folder.

Has anyone had trouble with the Brazilian team names? the file fixed everything but Brazilian teams still have the 3 letter name for some reason. I tried downloading and applying again. And I am not on a save currently, this is happening when I start new games.

Any advice?

Thank you!

Make sure you delete the old dbc folders (not merge, not copy contents, but delete) and put the folder from this download instead.

Ah! Now it works, thank you for the quick response and the help!
Hi,

When I try to put the name of the club that I want, sometimes it doesn't work. When I replace PSG by Paris, it works. When I replace UCAM by Murcia, it doesn't. It's strange because I do everything perfectly, I change the club short name and the club long name.

Any advice please ?

Thanks.

Where and how exactly are you changing the club names?
