FM2018 Real Names and German National Team Fix File for FM18.3.0 [v2.1 released on 05/04/2018]
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
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2018\data\database\db\1830
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
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2018 / data / database / db / 1830 
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.

For those struggling to find the Steam and Steam Apps folder etc using Mac with the new OS High Sierra, this link below shows how you can unhide your Library folder which will then let you find the other folders.

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
OPEN
/home/user/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Football Manager 2018/data//database/db/1830/
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
OPEN
sdcard\Android\data\sportsinteractive.fm18\files\installed\data\\database\db\1830
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders


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 an folders:

https://i.imgur.com/VLVqYin.png

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.

https://i.imgur.com/fD6OfXK.png

STEP 6

If you had already used previous versions of this download, you will need to delete the files named:
Susie Real Name Fixes - Abdelhak Nouri removed_6B282152-37E5-4FFE-9159-07277A5FD537.fmf
and
Susie Real Name Fixes - Ajax staff FM18_51792081-6A2F-4EF3-8781-F6D8D9E2A331.fmf
from within the editor data folder as they are no longer needed. Retaining them will see a duplicate complement for Ajax staff members.



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
It's a database i'm making with legends @ 16 years old.

With regards to errors, there aren't any - double click on the game in Steam, says 'Running' - then goes to 'Syncing' as if syncing saved data, and .. that's it. It prevents the game from launching at all.

Send me a PM, I have an idea...
Hi. Is this the updated one for the full release?

I seem to be having a strange problem with starting a Stuttgart save. My U23 team (Stuttgart II) does not appear to be in any competitions.

My first team is in the BL as expected, and my u19's are in the German U19 division 1 south, but my u23 team has nothing where the competition should be. Throughout the season they don't play any matches at all. I get maybe 3-4 preseason friendlies as the only matches they play all year. https://imgur.com/a/zHPe7

I'm oddly still getting match reports for matches that aren't happening: https://imgur.com/a/8dfjy
Sometimes these match reports have members of my u19 listed, sometimes they have first team players listed (including on the same day they played in the first team). The player's fitness levels never change from these matches though, and the players never develop.

The match that that report references is nowhere to be found in first team, u23, or u19 schedule.

I've played out the first season in the hopes that in season 2 I'd be invited to some sort of youth cup or something but it never happened, and now I have guys graduating the U19's that aren't homegrown or ready for first team time, but I have to either loan them or let them rot.

I honestly have no clue what's going on. The German name fix is the only data file I ever add, and I added it same as always, as per instructions. Other than the U23 team everything else works perfectly.

This is happening on new saves with the release version of the patch and the game also.

I really appreciate your work in providing this for us each year (it's literally the reason why I buy FM) so please don't take this as criticism, just curious if I can help in any way.

EDIT: Just noticed that my logo pack doesn't seem to detect Stuttgart II (my U23's) as a Stuttgart team. Don't know if that means anything just throwing it out there.

Looks like the Stuttgart II team is in a senior league, namely the Regionalliga Südwest, which is the regional fourth tier in Germany. This division is not playable, however fixtures are generated in the background - much like they are for all the other non-playable divisions in the game. In fact, if you go to the fixture schedule page for the Freiburg II, Hoffenheim II and Mainz II teams (all of which are in the same division), you will only see the odd friendly here and there, much like your II team. However, if you then check their players, they will all have statistics for matches that do not appear, much the same like your II players.

Keep in mind that the II team system in Germany is completely different to the English reserve league system. II teams don't compete in a dedicated reserve league, but in the main football pyramid, usually in the 4th or 5th divisions. In the future (and especially if you have some good players in your II team), it may be promoted to the 3. Liga, and they will have competitive, clickable and watchable games.

Basically, this is the way the game works and it's got nothing to do with this file, or any other file for that matter. Your players are playing games, but since they're not in a playable division, you can't see these games in the fixture schedule. You've got nothing to worry about, in short.

As an aside, I'm not sure what logo pack you're using but the Metallic logopack contains the Stuttgart II logo, so that looks to be a problem your end.

Edit: Hope that gave you some background at least, now that I see you've deleted it...

hi, for some reason i cant seem to get correct player names... anything i could do to sort this out?
Hi,

I noticed an issue with Livingston's stadium. It has them playing at Energy Check Stadium at Firhill when it should be Tony Macaroni Arena.

I checked the editor and it has two Energy Check Stadium at Firhill's. One should be correct for Partick Thistle's stadium.
v1.1 of this file is now out.

It corrects a few minor mistakes, adds proper names for some clubs and youth leagues and adds entries submitted in this thread. The bulk of the changes will be save-game compatible, apart from the handful of club name changes.

As some of you may have realised, SI have added reserve and youth competitions to the FM database, instead of them being generated automatically in each save-game. This means that they all have UIDs and may need to be edited to fit into the parameters of this file. Any details which anybody can give me about these (and any other) competitions would be much appreciated

This fix does not edit player names. Are you running a non-Steam version perchance? Where are you not getting correct player names?

Excellent timing - I've re-released v1.1 to correct this. A minor change which is save-game compatible

That's not the right folder. The one attached is.

And why and how have you managed to get the FM17 folders in there? They're not needed!

Did you re-apply the file after the latest official SI patch was released? You must do so.

You must apply this file before starting a new game.

There are full and complete installation instructions in English in the opening post and also within the download. If you have a specific query, feel free to ask, but all you would need to know is described in the opening post already

Please reply in English as I do not know Hungarian. If I can use Google Translate to translate Hungarian to English, then so can you to translate your reply
Any idea if you can amend the Brazilian team names during an existing save?

i.e. update the file with the teams, drop the hashtag and lose the nickname in order to get the full name?

You can, yeah, with the only downside being that you lose the club nicknames for that save. (Not all of the nicknames, but the ones for clubs with fixed names.)

I've downloaded this for FM18 and followed the instructions to make sure files are where they should be etc, however, I don't have access to use the German National Side.
