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.

Okay so after hours and hours of work, looking it up on the internet and what not i fixed it. Yes I did! Deleted the game and reinstalled it in the Program Files x86 instead of the regular Program Files. After doing this fixes after that it worked. Still very gratefull that you put so many time into helping me.

No worries, happy to see you solve the issue
Most teams in MLS are missing the name. Like it's should be "Seattle Sounders", not "Seattle".. https://ibb.co/c73Jx7

As far as I can tell, those are the correct short names, as seen on the official MLS website. The correct long name can be viewed in the respective clubs' screens

Are you in the middle of a career already or are you about to start a new game? I ask as the method to make the change is different

Open you pre-game editor, make the changes you want and save them as a separate file. This way you can use it also in the future
I've just noticed an error with the Italian u18 domestic leagues

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 43344150 "Campionato Under-17 Serie A e B Girone A" ""

"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 43344151 "Campionato Under-17 AeB-C" ""

I think that's the error. Just needs the 1 changing to a 2 at the end for Girone C

Hye, after I applied the fixes, my FM crashed and stopped working. Do you have suggestions? Tried reinstalling it and it worked fine but when I applied the fixes, it crashed again and stopped working again.

Hi Mons,
do you have an idea of ​​when the new version of the file will be released?
Thanks

Sorry, mate, only seeing this now.

Looks like you have installed it not in the correct manner. Can you post screenshots of the folders displayed in the main post as they look like on your computer? This can help me spot what's wrong...

Possibly next week.

ado den haag = Cars Jeans Stadion
groningen = NoordLease Stadion

Obviously I will always have to start a new game to get these new changes, correct?

The Italian competition name changes should still work in your existing save game. You can even do them now if you can't wait for me to do it

The only things which won't work in an existing save game are club name changes, and I don't think there's any of them, and if there are, there's only a handful...

Did you mean these? It worked perfectly when I applied previous fixes, but after the new update, it turned out like this

Some of claassen's league files don't work with 18.3 because of changes in SI's database affecting those files. Can you try removing them temporarily and only having the Susie Real Name Fixes file inside the editor data folder when starting FM up?

Everything else appears fine

Still no luck,mate. I've taken out everything except the Susie Real Name Fixes file inside the editor data folder, but the same pop up keeps appearing and it crashed again. Do you have any other ideas on the cause of it?

I'm all out of ideas, sorry. Everything appears to be in order but clearly your FM seems to have some trouble with the files in this download. Can you try deleting the files one by one and seeing if a particular file out of the 5 is the issue?

I think I've figured out the problem. I think something's wrong with my Graphics folder. When I applied your latest fix, I download the new cut out facepack update as well. After I removed the facepack folder and applied the fix, the problem's gone. Thank you for your help. Cheers mate.

Hi!

I still have the older versions of the fix on my HD. I'll send you the 1.3 version through a private message.
Just a minute.

Please make sure all the lnc folders have the same files contained in it as the ones in the screenshot in the main post. If this is the case, then please wait for the next call-up for real German players to appear.
for future updates: latest changed stadium names

PEC ZWOLLE = MAC³PARK stadion
Excelsior = Van Donge & De Roo Stadion
ado den haag = Cars Jeans Stadion
groningen = NoordLease Stadion

They're all in the correct name in the default SI database already
