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/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.

Hi @mons, do you already have a release date for this updated file?
Hi @mons, do you already have a release date for this updated file?

There have been only a small number of changes to the file since the last release. Hardly worth releasing a new one. If you want, PM me for the updated files

Ok,Thanks mons
Hi! I'm having a little problem with the fix: when it's installed, the game stop sending me the post-match reports! Someone know some solution?

Never had this issue before

What exactly do you mean by post-match reports?

The analysis we receive just after a game with passing map, important stats, etc. I already checked my scouting and data analysis configurations and it's everything okay there. When I uninstal the fix, they come back.

That's bizarre. This file does nothing to edit something like this and I wouldn't know if it is even possible to do so. Can I have screenshots of where you installed the files from this download please?
Amsterdam Arena (ID 1417) is incorrectly renamed to Johan Cruyff ArenA. It should be Johan Cruijff ArenA.

Cruyff with an Y is the international version of the name, but in all official places, only Cruijff with IJ is correct

The dutch jupiler league (id=30) has a new name:
Keuken Kampioen Divisie

If I had Keuken Kampioen Divisie as the long name, and Eerste divisie as the short name, would I be correct?

Changed the Ajax stadium name as well

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 30 "Keuken Kampioen Divisie" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 30 "Eerste divisie" ""

Yes that would be fine

Dutch KNVB Beker should be:

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 1301411 "TOTO KNVB Beker" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 1301411 "KNVB Beker" ""

About the Dutch Eerste Divisie: the KNVB sometimes names it Eerste Divisie, with a D and sometimes divisie with a d. As all other Dutch competitions in the LNC file start with a capital letter on each word, I would prefer to see "Keuken Kampioen Divisie" and "Eerste Divisie"

Thus:

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 30 "Keuken Kampioen Divisie" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 30 "Eerste Divisie" ""
Thanks for that

This is already in the file
@mons Not in the one that I downloaded a few days ago. There both long and short name are called KNVB Beker

I downloaded it just before replying to your post and the long name is TOTO KNVB Beker What's the date of your Competitions and other Fixes.lnc file then?
Hmm, it seems it is from 6 februari 2018. Strange.

I've taken a note of it but I won't change it in my files for now, since chances are they'll be with the correct name in FM19

«This comment has been edited»
@mons That's fine by me i'll edit it in my own files then.

I would have suggested the other changes in the database topics, but didn't know how.

The UID is 13153669, if it helps

Which other changes and which database topics do you mean?
@mons That helps ofcourse. Now I don't have to open the editor

I meant a higher budget for Pyramids FC and the staff changes that are not already in the Susie Live Update.

You don't need the editor to check UIDs. Just use our FM database search tool

I'm not sure whether the live update can change club budgets tbh, but any staff movements should be changeable as per normal practice methinks
I thought, I only had to edit Pyramids FC in the LNC files, but then my changes won't show in the game. Should I edit the club name in the .fmf file too?
