FM2014 Real Names and German National Team Fix File – version 2.1 for FM14.3.0 [02/03/2014]
This file is intended for version 14.3.0 of FM14, and will need to be re-applied if/when 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 re-installed when patches come out.

The sortitoutsi real names fix changes the instances of fake names in Football Manager 14 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 National team doesn't call up real players. These 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 Italian and French clubs to circumvent licensing restrictions. It also adds real-life media and journalists, with 23 media files added to encompass all major footballing nations and continents. It also includes a small file to correct some incorrect national kit colours and ones whose kits were not displaying. 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 these files to work, however, you will need to start a new game.

Magrippinho very helpfully created a YouTube video on how this file should be installed. Some of the contents are different - but the procedure is identical, although of course you use the equivalent folder for FM14.

Or, you can follow the below instructions to install this file:

Step 1: Go to

PC
 Program Files \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ football manager 2014 \ data \ db \ 1430 
Mac
USERNAME \ Library \ Application Support \ Steam \ SteamApps \ Common \ Football Manager 2014 \ Data \ db \ 1430
Linux
/home/user/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/Football Manager 2014/data/db/1430/

Please note that the Local folder is hidden. Press (ctrl + h)
For Mac Lion users, the Library folder will be hidden. Use this link to find out how to show it.

Step 2: Delete the dbc, edt and lnc folders from the folder above

Step 3: Copy the dbc, edt and lnc folder from this download into the folder mentioned in step 1.

Step 4: Go to:

Documents \ Sports Interactive \ Football Manager 2014
Step 5: Open the folder named "editor data" contained therein. If it does not exist, then create it.

Step 6: Keeping the folder in step 5 open, go back to the file you downloaded and open the folder named "editor data files".

Step 7: Copy everything from the folder in step 6 into the folder mentioned in step 5.



To check if the file is working, go to the Champions Cup and EURO Vase, 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.

As stated earlier, there's no need to release a new file as I have made no changes and the folder structure has remained broadly the same...
When I go to steamapps and common Football manager 2014 is not there what do i do?

Do you have an original copy of the game?
Quick question. Inside my documents folder, I have 2 SI folders. One is a little larger than the other. My question is, which SI folder am I dumping my data in for this as well as logo packs? Thanks.

Your saved games are situated in the "games" folder in one of the two SI folders. These files and all graphical updates should be going in the same directory...
Hey Mons, thanks for the file, it's greatly appreciated. One thing I noticed since the 14.2 update is that in the search menu in game where it used to say ''club'' or ''nation'' I only get numbers (347103 and 347237) and also in each individual country tab where I believe it should say ''competition'' I get (297254). Everything else is perfect as usual (national teams, comp names, etc. I've reapplied the 1.2 files since the update, restarted the game and steam. Obviously these aren't major issues but any suggestions would be welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Edit : I just reinstalled the game completely without the name fix files and I'm still getting the same problem so It's not related to these files. Still curious if anybody else sees the same thing in their game ?

thanks again for the file Mons


Yeah I'm getting the same thing in the search menu. I thought it was because of this name fix but if you tried reinstalling I guess not. Weird.

You've ticked the use Unique IDs (or equivalent) tickbox in the in-game preferences...


Where is that option? All I can find is show screen IDs in title bar.
Here is a picture of how it looks.

That's the one, I think. Just untick it from the preferences.

Tried already, didn't work. Does your game not have like that in the search menu? Trying to figure out what is causing it.

They both contain a "games" folder with a config xml file.

Nevermind. I did a test save. I see which one now. Thanks.

My game doesn't have that issue . It could be a bug with the official SI update and it might be worth posting on the official forum reporting the bug...
Hey @Mons

Great job with the site and the coaching to get us folks into the game!

I have the non-Steam FM14.1.3 version and despite following all instructions and reading comments across 12 pages I have been unsuccessful in installing Real Player Names.

Here's what I have done so far:
1. Followed all instructions as per above
2. Re-Installed the game and done exactly as above
3. Restarted my computer several times to test out every scenario

Below is a screenshot of what I see...

Hoping you can help me out.

Thanks
Sid

That screenshot ain't working.

Moreover, afaik, FM14 can't work without Steam apart if it's cracked, so I won't be helping you.

I don't have a Mac so can't help Try to do a search of your Steam folder to find wher exactly the dbc, edt and lnc folders are located. It should then be relatively straight-forward to install.

Buy an original version of the game and get all the benefits that go with it...
Is there a way to make changes in the editor once the real names fixes are installed?

These files can work safely alongside any other editor data files you create or download
Has there been a file done to change 3 letter competition codes?
Yes, there's a file in this download for that very purpose...
in editor data files?

is it the 3 Letter Names for Competitions and can I change these?
Can someone help me please as I can't find the Uefa best goalkeeper, defender, midfielder or forward of the year in the editor. Thanks.

Yes and yes, although you will need to start a new game for the changes to take effect.

They're there

You can find their respective UIDs by opening the Awards.lnc file from this download and searching for the UEFA section...

Yes but what are they called in the editor as I can't find them as I want to edit them please, Thanks.
I can't find either, there is one file (3 Letter Names for Competitions) with strange text...
