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/

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:

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

Thanks again Mons for all the work your doing all year long
I think if it wasn't for @mons I couldn't play FM!
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

i repeat steps and now works fine..my mistake in previous steps sorry...
I don't have dbc, edt or lnc folders in this folder : Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2018\data\database\db\1800\lnc

All I have in that folder is folders called "all" and "greek"

but I do have them all in this folder : Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2018\data\database\db\1800\

Is the path in the instructions wrong?

Good spot, although I would have thought it's self-evident.

Fixed it now, and added a screenshot to further make it clear what needs to be done and where
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


So if I just re-install the (presumably updated) fix as I did in the first instance when the full game is release and each time it's updated, it should enable me to have all the competition and club names/national team squads be corrected again in an existing save, as opposed to only being able to correct everything by starting a new save once the game is released on the 10th?
Hmm, you've basically not installed it correctly. Can I see a screenshot of your lnc folder?


https://i.imgur.com/q9JvkpT.png
can please anyone upload the "right" file for the spanish,and schalke etc.. team names for me?

I did the things in the first post but it still "real san sebastian,gelsenkirchen..."

anyone help?

If you do the workaround in the first post, yes. If you start a new game after the full game is released and the club name changes editor data file is released, then yes without that proviso.




Can I see the full path where you have placed the file? Doesn't look long enough to me.
https://i.hizliresim.com/1GGqyB.jpg

did I do it right? or not?
so all I have to do is waiting for the full version and do this thing again?

Yes, and if you download these files and start a new game when the game is released, you won't even need to do that.
Can you please change in next update?

So with this can i keep usig it with the proper realease and what other steps will i need to do just the editor stuff?
or by doing that hashtag delete does that mean we dont need to worry about the steps 4 and 5 above?
I cant seem to get it to work. Done the notepad thing too. Mm what am i doing wrong
