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.

thanks that was right. also i can't download the kit pack? i click download and nothing happens! any idea why?
Best to post in the respective kit pack forum/thread then, don't want to clog this thread unnecessarily
Which is the German NT file? As that's the only thing in the update that doesn't seem to work
yeah the German national team and japan national team are still all fake players. everything else works.
The file needs to be deployed in separate folders depending on which version you started your save-game in.

If you started your save-game prior to the release of patch 14.3 (i.e. before February 28th), then you need to download and place the dbc, edt and lnc folders in this file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2014\data\db\1400 or its equivalent.

If you started your save-game after the release of patch 14.3 (i.e. on or after February 28th), then you need to download and place the dbc, edt and lnc folders in this file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2014\data\db\1430 or its equivalent.

If you're not sure when you started the game or which of the two you should do, then apply both files and you shouldn't have any problems

Remember, you need to DELETE the dbc, edt and lnc folder and not just insert the contents of this file. Also, remember that with every new patch the file assigning fake German and Japanese national team players is automatically re-created...
Mines on 14.3. I just reinstalled everything, didn't work. but i started a new game and the German team was on that fine, I thought the national teams was save-game compatible?
Remember, if you've added these files in the middle of a save game, the German national team will only get the real players the next time they call players up...
hi,
is compatible for the ultimate patch 14.3.1? Thanks!
Hi

Why when I update this do the Portuguese Club Nicknames not appear in the game?
Just tried with the new patch, 14.3.1, didnt work for me
Hi

Why when I update this do the Portuguese Club Nicknames not appear in the game?

Licensing issues afaik - hardcoded by SI that the Portuguese club nickname is the same as the club name.




Just tried with the new patch, 14.3.1, didnt work for me

It works fine for me and I changed nothing yesterday when the new patch was installed How could you tell it isn't working?

Read this post, in case it helps.
it works fine
Have SI put in some extra protection against Japanese CLUB names? Because I can't change them no matter what how I try.

I've tried this file and I've tried creating my own .lnc to change the club names of the top two division teams in Japan but they simply won't change. Some lower league teams can be changed though. I've also tried to create a new save, but still no changes.

By default, there's an lnc file contained within the all folder which modifies the initial Japanese names. This needs to be deleted for any changes you make to take effect.
After a year (5/2014), German and the Japan team was error (when call player for WC2014). Please, help me! (My game fix good after newgame)

NOTE: My save game is 14.3 and my game also is 14.3

What version of the game are you playing and what version did you start the save game in?

Then read this post.

Looks to me like you don't have an original version of the game so you're not going to get any further help from me.
@mons: Thank u for help!
Guess who just got banned?

Guess who just got banned?



pissed with power...
cant you just advise people to refrain from unnecessary language and engage them with meaningful chat?
...just a thought.
To clarify, the user was banned for making it clear, via screenshots no less, that he is flaunting our non-piracy rule, and not for any "unnecessary language" or ill-advised banter. I'd like to think I could handle something like the latter
Hi there,

I'm sorry, but in all the years playing the games and using this great fix, I can't get it to work on 14.3.0/1.
I'm sure I've installed it correct, as I've done tons of time previously, but nothing changes. not just German & Japan NT's, but also competition names, etc.
Any ideas? any screenshots required?
