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
@Obyt14 and @Tommy Hughes, I can see where MMXX is coming from in a lot of his proposals and I certainly don't think it's fair to say they're plain awful. But generally speaking, I prefer to have words rather than acronyms as short names and that is something I intend to keep in place in the file unless unavoidable

Good to hear. Also, thank you for all your work on the wonderful Real Names etc. Fix file!
I've made the new logos (metallic) for the "BetVictor Leagues" and there are some changes in the names and UIDs due to league structure changes over the past few years. Hope I got them right

This is brilliant hope you will expand on this and put it in the FM20 fix thread
Please change the short name of Tianjin TEDA to TJ TD.
TJ QU is short for Tianjin TEDA Quanjian, the title sponsor in season 2016. In season 2017, Quanjian bought another club in Tianjin and change it's name to Tianjin Quanjian (current name Tianjin Tianhai).
BTW, what is more important, most of fans of Tianjin TEDA hate this name very much.

I am not releasing a new version of this FM19 file, but will keep it in mind for the FM20 version. What is the UID of the team you'd like me to change, for the avoidance of doubt?
If you have already started a save-game or you are playing FMT or you are playing the beta and wish to change German, Spanish, Italian and French club names to the correct ones, there is a workaround. However, you will lose the club nicknames.

Open the City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc file with Notepad (on Windows) and TextEdit (on Mac). All the changes I've made in the editor data file are included in this file, however they are preceded by a hashtag (#) which makes the lnc file ignore any text following it.

You can remove the hashtags from in front of any of the "CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" and "CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" codes which you wish to change, and this will ensure these changes are displayed in your save game.

For Notepad, all you need to do is: Select the edit menu, click the replace option, type #"CLUB in the first field and "CLUB in the second and clicking replace all. Then save and close. Shouldn't take more than 3 seconds if you do it right

Basically, instead of


#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern München" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern" ""

you should have


"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern München" ""
"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern" ""


Basically:
Using an lnc
Pro: Can be used (and disabled) after a save game has been started
Con: Removes club nicknames for those teams whose name has been edited


Using the editor data file
Pro: Retains club nicknames
Con: Needs to be applied before starting a new game

I'm applying these changes to FM 2020 Touch.

For modifying the "City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc" file in Notepad, is this this to be done to all three "City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc" files, i.e. the file of that name in each of the 2000, 2001 and 2010 folders?

Thanks in advance.

I suspect that doing it for 2010 should be enough. It's simple enough to verify - change just that one, check any of the entries in the lnc file, load a save game and see if the changes have taken effect

The UID of Tianjin TEDA is 416.
I just checked the fmf file, the Name and the Short Name dont need to be modified. Please change the Six Letter Name to TJTEDA, as I think it's better than TJ TD.
Thanks for your help!
hi, the name are all fixed but Juventus still have the wrong kits during the match in the match engine.

thank you so mutch

This is the thread for the FM19 version of this fix. The FM20 version is here: https://sortitoutsi.net/downloads/view/50426/fm2020-licensing-and-real-name-fix-file-v01-for-fm20-beta-awaiting-release

If you download those files, it'll also fix that issue

Going by the skin, this looks like it's an issue with the FM20 version of this file rather than the FM19 version, which is where you have posted.

As mentioned in the installation instructions, in the main post and repeated many times over many versions and over many years, when SI release a new update or hotfix, this sometimes recreates files which this download deletes, and so it is recommended to re-apply these files every time, just in case.

It appears that one of these files, namely the one which makes the German national team unable to call up real players, has been recreated. If you apply it on the 10 March, then the call-ups on the 23 March will be of real players as usual, rather than grey players.

Either way, download the latest version of the file and make sure to read and follow the installation instructions, then quit FM and Steam and load it up again. If you've moved past the 10 March, keep in mind that the German (and Japanese) national team will NOT immediately appear, but only at the next international call-ups.

If you're in doubt, look at the screenshots of the respective folders in the main post and make sure your folders are the same. If you're still not sure, post screenshots of these folders so I can have a look at them.
