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.

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.

Did you add the files after starting a new game?
Did you add the files after starting a new game?

I did, as I played the Beta and waited to add them until the release of the full game. On new saves, the German team still isn't available. I've checked the files from the screenshots above, and they're all in the right folders, along with additional files that appear. Could the additional ones be the problem?

Those additional ones are the problem; that's why I tell you to re-install this patch when a new update is released as they include the licensing restrictions which this file removes, thus defeating the purpose of it

Re-install this download, and you'll be fine

Excellent - always remember to check this place when an official patch is released so that you download the latest version and re-apply it
Question, in my game the Stuttgart stadium is called the Neckarstadion but it should be the Mercedes Benz Arena. All other names are correct but given that I want to start a career with Stuttgart it is a bit of a thorn in my eye

Oh dear.

Open your City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc file with Notepad, look for the German stadium change section and add this:

# Stuttgart
"STADIUM_NAME_CHANGE" 1347 "Mercedes-Benz Arena" ""

The next version of the file will include it - happily this fix is save-game compatible

Can I apply this fix in the FM18 Demo?

I would think so, although probably you would need to do the workaround in the first post to get the club names

Boys in the Spanish Segunda as in photo I do not leave the name of the team "Sanse" as in the picture.

Do you have other editor data files?

Are you using the workaround in the first post for club name changes or are you using the fmf file?

I solved all of them in the database except for FMinside

Try removing the other file and see if the issue is resolved.
The small clubs no longer have managers, wenger, mourinho and the like are present but clubs like Bournemouth are left blank, I don't know if this caused it.

This file does not modify people in the game, so your issue not related to this file.

Are you running the Premier League in view-only perchance? And are you running any other files alongside this fix?

Yes and Yes, Basically running all the files on fm 18 essentials kitpacks, logopacks and facepacks. I'm guessing the view only is the reason, Thanks
How many staff should ajax have Im unsure if it's worked or not?

7 coaches, including bergkamp and aron winter?

Or are there still more?
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.)


how would you go about adding the correct Brazilian names into the game?

Mons, would this need to be added to the next update of this file or is the file editable to add teams which aren't already included?
