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

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.

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
Excellent work.

Deportivo la Coruna's B team changed their name to Fabril at the start of the season - or Real Club Deportivo Fabril as their long name. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deportivo_Fabril

KUTGW

Good spot - will be changed accordingly in the next version
Cracking file as always. Just noticed this, im using the licence file from the 11.11.17 (maybe this is the issue?)

This award was added this season and slipped by me. I'll correct it in the next version

Thank you for your work. I still can't seem to get the real German National team to work. It is always greyed out. I re-installed the game twice and checked my own steps but can't find out what my mistake is. I noticed that although the game version ist 18.2... there is no 1820 file in my installation path.
Please help my sorry ass!

I believe you cannot really see the effect of the fix until the next time that the German national team names their squad for an upcoming fixture. It's at that time when the greyed out players in the national team squad should be replaced by actual real ones.

This is it. If you apply the files in the middle of a save game, you have to wait until the next time that squads call up players for the actual real players to be called up...
Hey. great work. can I somehow rename the names of the stages by using this? if possible, an answer with an illustrative example.

I'm afraid I don't believe that is possible, no.
"New White Hart Lane" (Spurs' new stadium) will be called "The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium" (before naming rights are eventually applied, anyway.

Just in time for the update, which I'm hoping will be tomorrow
Woohoo! Thanks Mons.
Hey fellow mangers,

Now that there's a new official update out (FM version 1.3) do I need to wait for a new version of this file or can I simply repeat the steps outlined above to reapply the fix?

Many thanks.

Grant.

I tried to re-apply for a new save and it didn't work. Hopefully a fix soon!

Much appreciated!
I already have a save going with this applied, I am about 2 and a half years in. Everything running perfect. I noticed there was an update today. I had to do the update to launch the game, am I safe to keep going with the existing save without re-applying this or will there be issues down the line? I don't want to proceed until I have confirmation, I'm loving this save at the moment and don't want to do anything to ruin it.

Also thanks for all the hard work on this, appreciate it!
hi, appreciate the work. not sure if you're aware, but there is a new 18.3.0 update which includes the winter transfer deals. will you be making a new real names/german team fix file?

Guys and girls, the new version of this file is now out - enjoy.

Just 1 small thing to note:
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 in the 18.3.0 database since the Ajax staff are included in this version and Abdelhak Nouri is no longer visible. Retaining them will see a duplicate complement for Ajax staff members.


I will shortly address all the queries made since I was last online

You should be fine, then. To be safe, I would suggest downloading and applying this download for the 1830 folder only, and copying the 3 files in the 1830 lnc folder into the 1800 and 1810 lnc folder. This to get the latest stadium, city, competition and award changes, all of which are save-game compatible. This is not strictly necessary, of course

18.3.0 contains the full Ajax staff complement so that particular file is no longer needed. Please delete it
