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

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.

These all look perfectly right. I don't know what's wrong

Fancy sending me your save game so I can test it?

would this Inc method work for English teams on a saved game?

I see no reason why they shouldn't

sorry - on FM20?

The process is the same for FM20 and all previous FMs, so whichever changes you had in mind using lnc files for English clubs should work just fine

Yep - for some reason i can seem to get it to work - I'm on a Mac

Can I have screenshots of the location of the file(s) you're trying to edit? And if you can upload the file itself, it'd be great so I can have a look at it.
of course i can

@bigno9, they're in the right place but the characters in the lnc file are spaced out for some reason.

I'm copying the text from my lnc file to show you what it should properly look like.


"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 43066319 "A.S.D. Sarnese 1926" ""
"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 43066319 "Sarnese" ""

thanks - must have been the text editor i used, it appears to be the same in the other files when i open them.

It could be that TextEdit has some setting which makes it look that way on your Mac.

If you want to make it without any text formatting, go to menu “Format > Make Plain Text” (or shortcut ‘Command+Shift+T”.)

You can also set this non-formatting as default everytime you launch this app. Go to “Preferences” > under ‘Format’ > choose “Plain Text”.
Forgot to add this before new save. But have only problem with brazilian team names, so how can I correct them all?

That file should have been applied before starting a new game, since the only way to change the Juventus name after starting a career is to use an in-game editor.
