FM2018 Real Names and German National Team Fix File for FM18.1 [v1.1 released on 12/11/2017] Installation Instructions
This file will need to be re-applied if/when official patches/updates are released 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 the Beta, FM Touch 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 2018 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. The latter 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. Due to licensing reasons, the number of Ajax non-playing staff is quite small and this file contains a fix to restore them. 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 2018\data\database\db\1800
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2018\data\database\db\1810
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 2018 / data / database / db / 1800 
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2018 / data / database / db / 1810 
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.

Slightly more detail in this post



OPEN
/home/user/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Football Manager 2018/data//database/db/1800/
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
/home/user/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Football Manager 2018/data//database/db/1810/
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders

Please note that the Local folder is hidden. Press (ctrl + h)



[b]OPEN
sdcard\Android\data\sportsinteractive.fm18\files\installed\data\\database\db\1800
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders

OPEN
sdcard\Android\data\sportsinteractive.fm18\files\installed\data\\database\db\1810
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders[/spoiler]

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 respective folder structures should look like in both the 1800 and 1801 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 2018\editor data
This should be what your editor data folder looks like now. 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. The Japanese national team will be populated along the same lines too, but any Japan-based players are not in the official database and need a third-party add-on to be created and added.

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
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" ""


Basically:
Using an lnc
Pro: Can be used (and disabled) after a save game has been started
Con: Removes club nicknames for those teams whose name has been edited

Using the editor data file (not released yet for FM18!)
Pro: Retains club nicknames
Con: Needs to be applied before starting a new game

Well, that was fast. I posted in the Fm17 thread and didn't realize this one existed. Spot on work!
once again @mons i doff my hat to you sir
@mons the premier league international cup for the u23s has been added this year

May need adding to the list as I believe it’s called the premier division international cup on the game (should be premier league international cup)

Thanks for that - will add it to the next version

Anything else that you (or anybody!) manage to spot, do let me know please

@mons great job as always.
Let me ask you, is there any way to fix brazilian first league club names (aka brasileirão or campeonato brasileiro) ? They are named only with 3 letters, like "BOT" for Botafogo or "SPA" for São Paulo
It did this last year at times, pretty sure the file does fix it, something to do with the #'s in the file needing adjustment.

Great work again Mons, thankyou.
Formerly McDoul
I overwrited everything and did what was posted on first post on this thread but sadly didnt change the "3-letter names" on my old save for brazilian clubs.

If you apply this download before starting a new game, they should have the correct names.

How can you tell it didn't work?

Because im seeing it as we speak in my screen lol. But i didnt start a new save, i applied the fix on your first post in a old save-game. I'll edit my other post to make it clear

Hehe, I wasn't clear myself either tbf. I meant to ask which part doesn't work? Are competition names changed? What about awards and club names? There's different reasons why they may not be working, and different solutions according to your reply.

As specified in the installation instruction and in the same post as my reply, to get correct club names this file must be applied before starting a new game.

Every competition names and other clubs have changed, like Real Betis and Europa League are correct. Only thing i checked that didnt work was brazilian clubs names. In an old save

Once you start a new game with these files installed, then Brazilian club names will be back to normal. Keep it in mind for FM, and also that the files must be updated every time a new official update/patch is released, to be safe
Where is this file in 18? cant find it
This didn't work for me? I downloaded the file and replaced the old ones like you explained and started a new save. Nothing changed, Real Betis is still named Real Hispalis and same for Sociedad etc?
Could someone help me out?
Thanks
I can't play it until I get real names, makes me hurl seeing wrong uns!
I have correct the competions names, but not the team names... could somebody help?
Thanks once again for the fantastic work that goes into this, it's massively appreciated.

One question: is it the case again this year as in previous years that it won't be possible to carry a Beta save over into the full release and still be able to have all the corrections? i.e, if you wanted the correct club/competition etc. names and German national team squads, you'd only be able to do so by beginning a new save after the full release with the updated fix?
Also, I've installed the fix in accordance with the instructions, but while the German national team squad has been corrected, none of the club or competition names have. Any idea what might be wrong?
Still get Gelsenkirchen instead of Schalke mons plus BMG and RBL
What changes have been made to this, compared to the latest version for FM 2017?
i got the fake german and spanish names still but everything else is working fine
Thank you very much!
I have done exactly what the directions specify, but so far no success. It hasn't changed anything when starting a new save. What to do?

Edit: Tried restarting my computer, which resulted in the league names being correct, however, the club names are still wrong.

Hi, a minor correction for Spain.

In spanish, it should be written FC Barcelona or Real Madrid CF instead of F.C. Barcelona or Real Madrid C.F.

Great job,
cheers!
Where is this file in 18? cant find it

You'll have to be more specific than that. What do you mean? What exactly can't you find?



FAO @SirBawsAlot @Yarda @DazS8 @US ARSENAL @Brejnholm , you really should read the installation instructions a bit more carefully. Changes in club names in the "normal" manner do not work in the beta and they cannot work until the full version is released and editor data files are enabled, which they cannot be until I get my hands on the editor A workaround to have club name changes visible is in the first post...

That's not quite exact. I've referred to the club name changes issue above. But what you would need to do when the game is released (and every time SI release a new update/patch) is to apply the files from this download which then removes any new files recreated automatically through the update which remove the effects of this fix



Also, I've installed the fix in accordance with the instructions, but while the German national team squad has been corrected, none of the club or competition names have. Any idea what might be wrong?

Hmm, you've basically not installed it correctly. Can I see a screenshot of your lnc folder?



What changes have been made to this, compared to the latest version for FM 2017?

I haven't kept a list. A bit of everything, just use it and find out And if you spot anything wrong, just let me know



Hi, a minor correction for Spain.

In spanish, it should be written FC Barcelona or Real Madrid CF instead of F.C. Barcelona or Real Madrid C.F.

Great job,
cheers!

For Spanish club name changes, I copied the names directly from the last version where they were displayed correctly (FM15 iirc). i.e. the names in my file are the same as those used by SI and who am I to correct them?

Working fine for me Mons
Croatian league change his name now it is Hrvatski Telekom Prva Liga second is Druga HNL
