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
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2017\data\db\1701

OPEN

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

DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2017 / data / db / 1730 
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.

Not sure if this has been brought up earlier (too many pages to scan)
You got a possible problem with Swedish Div 2 divisions.
They are correctly named if started in season 2016, but they got changed for the 2017 season.
The new FM2018 surely will have it correct, but perhaps a note on this for players that start FM2017 in January 2017


"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 56 "Division 2 Östra Götaland" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 56 "Div 2 Östra Götaland" ""
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 53 "Division 2 Södra Götaland" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 53 "Div 2 Södra Götaland" ""

Now in 2017 season the 53-comp is actually named Östra Götaland and
the 56-comp is named Norra Götaland.

Not the biggest concern but it might turn out odd when adding some other add-ons based on expanding Swedish league-system.
@RoCCo_42 , thanks for your feedback. I thought I'd done so already, but seems I haven't. I've logged it and will fix it if necessary.

@clamel , I can't check my files as I'm at work, but I seem to vaguely recall somebody else mentioning it. I've taken note and will also fix it if necessary.

Anybody else find or know of any changes, please do notify me as I quite simply can't capture anything on my lonesome
Is this file expected to work with FM18?

No, because it's the FM17 file

An FM18 version will be out as soon as possible after release of the game, as in every year...
FM18 beta is out now. Will this thread update when the FM 18 file is ready? Will we see an update for the beta, or wait til full release?
Hello.

Can you help me out? I can't do the 5th step because there is no FMF file in the downloaded pack.

Yes there is, within the editor data folder as indicated in the attached screenshot.

Just a reminder, as it's been known to happen, but this file is intended for use with FM17 not FM18

Do you have more than one steam library? If so go into steam, right click football manager 2017, click properties, go to local files, and finally browse local files.

I sure hope it doesn't work for you
I don't know if anyone can still help me with this old version of the F17 game.
I added the no-fake file and everything seems to be ok, I continued my save-game but I noticed that in the main card of each player the wording of the nationality has disappeared where usually the age and the presences in national is indicated.
Is this something solvable? if so how?

Thank you

W FM!

Hi there. I'm not sure what you mean - can you provide a screenshot of the issue?

Hello! and thanks for the fast reply as always!
Don't worry, the problem was solved by this morning, restarting the game the indication of the player's nationality reappeared!

The file works well!

Thanks again!
