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

DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2017\data\db\1730
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.

No worries, I suspect that it's in that there's something wrong...

I think so too but you never know. It would be a shame if I messed something up as usually I have no issues
"#CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 5341085 "ASC Niayes-Pikiné" ""

I think this is a typo. Thanks!
Hi. It's been working fine with the updated names etc, until I started a new game just now. Checked the files and they are as they should be

(for example"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern München" ""
"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern" "" ,

Is making a custom database causing a problem possibly?

Just checked and even with a quick start all the names have reverted to the original.

Assume it's to do with the patch that came out yesterday and it's not allowing that particular fix anymore?
Just thought, does it need to re downloaded and placed back in the folders, and then do the removal of hastags?

Tried downloading again and it's not working, also changed them back to the defaults in the saved game I had which was going to be long term.

As specified in the first post, you need to re-apply the files from this download. In this case, you need to place them in 1710 if you're starting a new game


@DCU1996 , looks fine to me

Ah right, Forgot to add to the 1710 file. Thanks for your help, and the fix.
Thanks for the instructions.

It works for new games (correct Brazilian club names), but not for previous games.

As I said, my current game *had* the correct Brazilian club names before patching it, but with 17.0.2 and also with the new 17.1, my save reverted to bogus 3-letter names.

Any fixes? Thanks.

The first two characters are the wrong way around and must be switched. Thought it was obvious, sorry!
Same for my game. I was able to apply the fix to my save game, Champions League etc works, but the save game has the 3 letter Brazilian club names.

New games however work fine.

Anyway to fix current games Brazilian names? Or is only way to fix to restart, which begs the question, will every time SI update the game, we'll lose Brazilian club names the rest of that current save game?

Sorry mate, but it's still not clear to me what's wrong. Can you tell me what should be input instead of "ASC Niayes-Pikiné"? I'm not an expert on Senegalese football

Discussed here

At this point, I have to get my hands on the full game so I can investigate the issue as it simply hasn't been the case for me so far in the beta.
Hi mons, when do you plan on the update?

Many Thanks
Hi mons, when do you plan on the update?

Many Thanks

When I get my hands on the editor and as soon as possible after the game is released.
Hi mons,
Loaded up the game today and in my save the fix has been reversed, will redownloading and reapplying fix this?
Thanks

Can you tell me what fixes have been reversed please?
Inter Milan has the default name even after reapplying the fix. Just wanted to make you aware. Thanks!

Hmm, thanks for this. Iirc, Inter were previously licenced and there was no need to "fix" the name, and it now looks like it is not the same in FM17. I'll include fix for it in the next version of the file
Awesome, can you change Shalke 04 to the proper name also?
When I get my hands on the editor and as soon as possible after the game is released.


Hey mate is there a way I can manually edit INTER to Inter and change Schalkes name back to the proper name? or is it not possible without the editor?

It bugs me too Guess you'll have to either grin and bear it, or wait for me to update these files. I hope to have them out as early as possible after the game is released...
Battlefield 1 it is then until tomorrow
