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:

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.

Mons, will this work in the older Football Managers? I'm speaking about FM 2011

The lnc files may work, but you will have the 2018 competition titles in FM11, which is not ideal.

I only have up to the FM13 versions of this file saved on my PC, but if you want the FM11 version, I'm sure some of these links will still be available for download...
You are the best Susie!! Totally works, follow the instructions, Brazilian teams fixed!!

I have downloaded v2.1 and followed the instructions. It all appears to have worked (see screen-capture), apart from there is still no change in Ajax's staff??

Any ideas???

Are you starting the game with the FM18.0 database (starting database - i.e. Van Dijk at Southampton), or the FM18.3.0 database (i.e. Van Dijk at Liverpool)? Makes a difference...

Hi,

Thanks for the response.

18.0.0 database, but I have updated all the db files, 1800, 1810 and 1830 - why would/does it make a difference?
Because they removed the Ajax Staff file because it's not needed in 18.3. If you're using the original 18.0 database, there is no Ajax staff.

As @Crpls said, the Ajax staff file included in the 18.0 version of this file was no longer needed with the 18.3 database as the missing Ajax staff were added by then.

Just use this version of this download and you should be fine: https://www.sendspace.com/file/bgrky4

Cheers! Great mate!
"EAFF East Asian Cup" id=5626836 has changed name to "EAFF E-1 Football Championship", and the qualifying tournament should probably be renamed as well "EAFF East Asian Cup qualifiers" id=5627647.
You can change this in the next version?

France

That's how it should be now

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 1301408 "Coupe de la Ligue BKT" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 1301408 "Coupe de la Ligue" ""

This is it now

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 1301408 "Coupe de la Ligue" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 1301408 "Coupe de la Ligue" ""

Will do

And thanks for all the changes you put forward - rest assured they will be going into the next update and you will be credited accordingly Keep them coming
Hi all,

Thanks for putting this together, it looks awesome.

When starting a new game, I don't have access to some of the major leagues, not sure what I've done wrong

https://www.screencast.com/t/ymuxRmJTYoKn << see image here (not sure how to upload an image into this comment section).

Based on the instructions I added the dbc, edt and inc files to 1800, 1810 and 1830

Any ideas what has happened?

Do you have any other editor data files installed? Can I have a screenshot of your editor data folder?
can I use to fm 19?

Legend man, on the fucking ball!
