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

OPEN
sdcard\appdata-local-packages-SportsInteractive(with a lot of random numbers)-Localcache-Local-Microsoft-WriteablePackageRoot-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

\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019\\GAMEPASS\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.
Discussion
The fix seems to be working now so thank you! It seemed to kick in after starting a new game. Is this to be expected?

All changes should be save-game compatible, apart from possibly the Brazilian club names I think.
I'm at work and won't be on my PC till tomorrow afternoon, so can't check, but if you open up the Club name changes lnc file with Notepad, you can search the file for Red Star's UID and make any necessary changes accordingly


Hey man I'm going to be doing this process tonight when I start a new game. Can you talk me through how to change red star back to red star if it does change their name. Cheers mate.

Can you tell me what exactly it is that you want to change, i.e. what it's like now and what you want it to look like.
Why Porto and Benfica still named FCP and SLB??

Portuguese club name changes are hardcoded to not be editable via lnc files. Like Brazilian kit colours, the change for this will have to wait until the editor is out and/or the game allows editor data files to be used.

I'll add it to the OP as it slipped my mind.

Noted, will be changing it for the full version of this file

I've done the real names fixe and the name for Red Star Belgrade has changed to Crvena Zvedza which I want to change back to Red Star Belgrade. Thanks.

Really? They're changed in my Beta.

Open the lnc file titled City, Club and Stadium Names and do a search for "Crvena Zvezda". Either delete that line (and that line only) or put a # in front of it.

I was using an old version of this file! Must mean that the original poster hasn't installed the files correctly then...

Can you give me a screenshot of your dbc/permanent folder?

Working fine for me: https://i.imgur.com/Ntwt0oj.png


What have you done to get the correct names for the Brazilian clubs? Anything different during the instalation process? I have installed the file and everything seems to be working fine, except the Brazilian clubs names. I have attached a screenshot of my dbc/permanent folder if it helps. Regardless, awesome job!

Cheers

Is that the 1900 or 1901 dbc/permanent folder? This particular fix needs to have a new game started to take effect btw...
Thanks! You are a saint


Cheers mate, all working fine thank you!

Excellent - do remember to update your files when the full game comes out and the full version of this file does too

Just like you said, I just needed to create a new game. Everything is working fine now.

Thanks!
I noted some mistakes about teams of Promozione Campania, italian 6th tier here:

https://sortitoutsi.net/search/database?q=promozione&game_id=10&type=league

GROUP A (UID 43104619)

Maddalonese change officially her name in Real Galatia 1919 with new ID 43457049 but the team continues to be called Maddalonese and have yet her own ID 43157988

You can verify here:

https://www.tuttocampo.it/Campania/Promozione/GironeA/Giornata7

https://www.tuttocalciocampano.it/promozione-campania-girone-a-risultati-classifica-1/


GROUP B (UID 43104620)

There are two teams Arco Secondili (ID 43457050 missing) but the team continues to be called Maued Sport and Florigium (ID 43156688) but Florigium is not present in the real group. In the real group in her place there is a team called Isola di Procida or simply Procida (ID 43066283)

https://www.tuttocampo.it/Campania/Promozione/GironeB/Giornata7

https://www.tuttocalciocampano.it/promozione-campania-girone-b-risultati-e-classifica-1/


GROUP C (UID 43104621)

This team Città di Eboli which team is going to replace? Probably Real Sarno? (ID 43391417)

No evidences of this team in real group:

Thanks for this; any more you find please let me know. For now, I only checked team names up to Serie D. Once the FM19 editor is released, I'll be in a better position to check all the other divisions and make any changes I find out. But of course, I appreciate any help you or anybody in the know can give me
Just a suggestion, that I already did myself editing the file: change the short names of the portuguese teams "Porto", "Benfica", "Guimarães", "Setúbal", etc, to respectively "FC Porto", "SL Benfica", "Vit. Guimarães" and "Vit. Setúbal". That's how we, in Portugal, ID these teams. Thanks a lot for your work!

Wherever possible, I copied SI's own names as used in previous databases prior to the current licensing issues...
I noted now that Maued Sport have new and different ID for FM 19 but it's placed in the wrong thier: 43411899

I won't do any competition changes as they will conflict with the more thorough and in-depth ones released later on after the game's release. This fix only changes Italian club and competition names.

I've taken note of this ahead of the editor's release
