FM2018 Real Names and German National Team Fix File for FM18.2.0 [v1.3 released on 14/12/2017] 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.

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

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


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 think you must not have installed the patch correctly. Can I get a screenshot of how the Japanese national team looks like in-game and also of your lnc folder?

Keep in mind that this file does not add any players to the J-League, nor the league itself. You can get an updated database for Japanese clubs here.

Thanks, I hadn't realised they'd announced their new manager.

That said, I'm not releasing a new version of the file as it's a data change issue and not a licensing fix thing It's something taken care of in the data update

But is it that we did the transfers and even with them enabled we go to FM and continue as nothing had been done .

The problem is not yours, sorry for not expressing myself in the best way.
What I wanted to say is that I had made transfers to the ajax staff and they were not staying in the database .. but I was watching and the ajax staff is already all correct

Once again I apologize for my English, it is not always the most correct xD

Happy to see everything is fine

I believe Sr Wer means they've applied the sortitoutsi data update and, yet, the Ajax staff will not be corrected the way the list of database changes shows it should.
Oh, nevermind then. Problem solved apparently.

all that needs to be fixed in this file is to sack Dennis Bergkamp.
Or remove that since its done in Sortitoutsi Live Update


If you enjoy my work and want to motivate me to continue and have extra bucks to waste.
PM me and i'll send you my PayPal

I'll keep it in mind for the next version, but I'm not releasing a new one just for this single change

I have downloaded the patches mainly for tghe Ajax staff and Nouri updates.
Have pasted them into the editior folder but no change. Do I need to paste all the editor files into the Editor folder to make this happen?

MY MISTAKE, SORTED IT! Thanks for the update!
I was struggling to find the Steam and Steam Apps folder etc using Mac with the new OS High Sierra but this link below shows how you can unhide your Library folder and then that will let you find the other folders.

Thanks, I've added it into the main post
Hi Mons, just a note to say a couple of the English Stadium sponsor names have changed.

Accrington's stadium is now called the Wham Stadium. Cheltenham's the LCI Rail Stadium and Hull is the KCOM Stadium.

Nuneaton's has changed as well, but I'm not sure if it's just went back to being called Liberty Way or if it's still the Coombe Abbey Arena from last season.

Cheers for all your work!

Thanks for these. I'll add them to the file ahead of the next release, planned for just after the release of the official transfer window patch.

If you know what you're doing, you can edit the lnc file yourself with Notepad and you'll have the changes in your save game for now

I've checked and the Nuneaton stadium sponsor change seems to have only been for 2016/17 and so it should now be plain Liberty Way.

Without trawling through the thread, any reason why I cannot see all the writing in the news section?

Eh? No idea what you mean.

Can you elaborate with screenshots and perhaps a few more details?

I do have background pictures on that change depending on the club you are. Bar that its a basic skin with a few graphics.

Never seen anything like it, and it's certainly got nothing at all to do with the files in this download. Have you tried changing the skin to see if the issue persists?

I saw it, but it removes a small number of media sources. Might as well leave it there.
