FM2019 Real Names and German National Team Fix File for FM19 v3.0 [released 01/03/2019]
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 2019 to the proper, real life names for awards, cities, stadiums and competitions, in cases where the actual name is not licensed, such as Champions League, Europa League and Premier League displaying instead of EURO Cup, EURO Vase and Premier Division respectively. It will also fix the fact that the Japanese National teams don't call up real players and that the Bayern manager has a fake name. These are all 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 Brazilian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and French clubs to circumvent licensing restrictions. It also adds real-life media and journalists, encompassing most major footballing nations and continents. Brazilian clubs' text colours are also changed through an editor data file. 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 2019\data\database\db\1900
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2019\data\database\db\1910
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2019\data\database\db\1930
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 2019 / data / database / db / 1900 
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2019 / data / database / db / 1910 
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2019 / data / database / db / 1930 
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
sdcard\Android\data\sportsinteractive.fm19\files\installed\data\\database\db\1900
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
sdcard\Android\data\sportsinteractive.fm19\files\installed\data\\database\db\1910
DELETE the dbc , edt and Inc folders
OPEN
sdcard\Android\data\sportsinteractive.fm19\files\installed\data\\database\db\1930
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 the 1910 folders:

dbc/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/lozGizB.png
edt/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/duFkzcZ.png
lnc: https://i.imgur.com/luTKTAf.png

STEP 4:
COPY the 7 files located in the EDITOR DATA FILES folder in the downloaded pack

STEP 5
PASTE to
\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\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.

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, Japanese national teams will be populated in the next instance that players are called up, and not instantly. Do keep in mind that this file does not add Japan-based players are not in the official database and these will 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 after starting the game I came across some weird name changes that seem to be... in Dutch? Most notably "Northern Ireland" in my game is "Noord-Ierland". Also, 4th level competitions in Poland are named "III liga Groep #" - 'Groep' instead of 'Grupa".
Is this in any way connected to this file or should I look elsewhere?

I'm afraid they don't have anything to do with this file. Neither the text "Noord-Ierland" nor "Groep" are included in the competition name change file.

It could possibly be related to any other editor data files you may have downloaded who has made the changes you refer to, but without seeing what you have, it's difficult to tell.

Hmm, and what types of files could cause this? Before my current save I had different fix that didn't cause such problems but I carefully removed it and installed yours following every step. Where should I look, in .lnc files?

It will probably be an editor data file, possibly adding some Dutch competitions and in which the file creator made some additional changes.

Best thing to do is use the editor to open any editor data file you may have and check the respective entries...

Hmm, so claassen's then? I don't have any other files that touch upon Dutch or Northern Ireland leagues. And the polish leagues are made by a polish creator so I don't see any reason as for why would he change that.
Well, anyways, maybe there is some pesky file left by some dutch creator, who knows, thanks for the help anyway
Is there a way to do this fix for fm touch 19 for the ipad? I have everything fixed but the real names of the competitions. Is it somewhere in this thread?

Like I said earlier, without knowing what files you have downloaded, there's no way I can tell exactly what is the cause. It could also possibly be caused by a remnant of the other real name fix you mention and which maybe you inadvertently omitted to delete. All I can say with 100% certainty is that it's not caused by this download.

It should be possible, I believe, but you'd have to find the equivalent path to those linked to in the main post. I don't have an ipad, so can't really help, I'm afraid.

To find the installation folder on the ipad, can you try right-clicking on FM19 on Steam, choosing properties, then clicking the below button

The screenshot is not for FM and I have no idea if Steam works in the same manner on a tablet as it does on a PC, but that's the best I can do for you...

I searched around and yep, you were right - the file that caused my problem was FMInside's Update, in case you'd have someone with a similar problem to mine, thank you for your help!

Glad to have had that cleared up
Why do Monaco Reserves another logo?
Why do Monaco Reserves another logo?

This pack doesn't add logos, so you'll have to ask whoever created the logopack you're using.
The 3 Letter names for Competitions isn't any good this year!

Superettan (Swedish 2nd tier) is called D3..
Clubs and reserves must have the same logo. For example, Atletico Madrid and Atletico Madrid Reserves the same logo. Why are they different in France? Monaco Reserves has a Swiss club logo!

«This comment has been edited»
The site says that a Monaco Reserves of ID 48038841. But the game is different! This ID does not work. In the game of Monaco Reserve weed from the Swiss club Prangins Sports!
Why is that? And how to fix it? How find real ID club reserves numbers from France?

I don't believe I made any changes at all from previous years to Swedish competitions. I'll check again and fix what needs fixing.


@Rus7M, like I said before, this pack doesn't add logos, so you'll have to ask whoever created the logopack you're using. Your issue has got nothing at all to do with this download.

you can find UIDs for clubs here : https://sortitoutsi.net/search/database

the UID for monaco is 826 and the UID for monaco reserves is 48038841. So what you gotta do is find the logos (normal and small) for monaco (826) copy them to somewhere and rename them 48038841 and copy them back in to the folder where they belong, and overwrite the wrong logos. You could also just use the Metallic logo pack as can be downloaded here : https://sortitoutsi.net/graphics/style/3/metallic-logos

you can also go in to your preferences in the game and turn on UID so you can see the uid of monaco reserves in your game. if you use some custom database the uid might be different. But anyway this has nothing to do with this forum so please stop posting the question here

As you rightly note, the correct name is Solomon Warriors. However, our file does not change the name at all and the club remains with that name in-game.

Perhaps you have other files in your editor data folder which are amending the club name Possibly timo's Solomon Islands league file?

I found the problem. It's not another file but my default language (German). When I change the data language in the editor to English I also see the correct name. Should I report this in the official forum?

That's very strange Yes, I would report this if I were you...
Good point - will do


Hello!

I think there's been a mistake.

What's now been edited to be called The Best FIFA Men's Player should be the Ballon d'Or.

What's now been edited to be called FIFA World Player of the Year should be The Best FIFA Men's Player.
Since yesterdays update the name fix doesn't work anymore....

Ah, I see. I have released a new version to solve this and some of the other minor issues identified since release. The change is save-game compatible.

No update was released yesterday or at any point in the immediate past, as far as I'm aware

Are you sure? This morning Steam installed my Football Manager again and since then the name fix doesn't work anymore. I've tried to download the fix again, installed it as i've been doing for 11 years know but it didn't work. Not in the save and also not in a new game. Brazil clubs are 3-letter names, Champions League and Europa League are not called that way etc...

Has it been a while since you played FM? The last official update was 19.2.1 released on 19 December; nothing since then.

I'm a bit confused as how to the CL and EL name changes aren't appearing - those changes are save-game compatible

Can you give me screenshots of how all the folder mentioned in installation instructions look like on your system?
