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.
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2017\data\db\1700
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.

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
Oh, totally my bad.

I placed the "editor data" inside the "editor data" folder...I'm dumb.

Anyway, thank you very much!

Good to hear you sorted it out
Do i nedd to start a new game?

Then you've not installed it correctly. Make sure all 5 dbc/permanent folders contain ONLY the files displayed in the screenshot in the main post.

You need to find the folder in which Steam installed the game files, because you should not have to create those folders yourself.

I found it. Now what? Delete all files in those folders and copy teh new ones?
Hello, after installing this fix my game is crashed at start. Can anyone help?

Edit: I restarted my PC and it is now perfectly fine. Thanks for the fix

As clearly described in the readme and in the main post, you need to delete the original dbc, edt and lnc folders and replace all 5 of them with the ones in this download. At the end of the process, each folder should look like the screenshots in the main post. Hope this helps
Hi everybody,

First of all thanks for the excellent work with this file. I recently updated my PC to windows 10 and I am currently having problems deleting the folders DBC, EDT and LNC.... When I try to delete them I get a windows message asking for administrator permissions but I am the only user in the PC and I am a administrator. Has anyone faced this problem? Any ideas of how to fix it??

I have check the security settings for the folder and my user is in fact owner of the folders and all the required permissions.

Thx for your help guys.

Cheers!

Can you check your 5 dbc/permanent folders and make sure only these files are contained in there:

Yes, that's part of the fixes effected by this file. If you don't want to have them, just delete the Awards.lnc file and you'll have the old default names back.
And what would happen if I erase the file Susie Real Name Fixes - Club Name Changes FM17_A92C8B5D-A423-4AD6-BFC2-4D28CF68A880 in the editor data folder ? Would I have the changes that I made ?

Thanks.


Is it correct, that if started a game using file "Susie Real Name Fixes...", there would be no chance to change club names. As lnc-files cannot overwrite .fmf file, and erasing .fmf file will not apply to already started game?

Thanks

You would not be able to edit club names which have already been edited within the Club Name Changes fmf file, no.

For a full list of clubs whose names are edited in this file, either open the file with the editor or open the City, Club and Stadium names.lnc file with Notepad, or a similar text-reading program. The most important changes are to club names in the top divisions of Germany, France and Portugal, which are named differently than real-life in the game for licensing reasons. There's also an overhaul for Italian club names in the top 5 divisions, as well as loads of edits for Eastern European nations to add accents and diacritics (such č, đ, š, ž) to club names where applicable.
I still have the German clubnames wrong. Like Schalke still as Gelsenkirchen. I did al the steps right.

Never mind. I had a other map with editor data.

I'll make a note of that, but I suspect that's something which will be changed in the default data by SI.

As is customary around this time of year, if anybody is aware of any competition name changes and wants to let me know, I'll make sure to add them in the FM18 version of this file
