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.
Discussion
If the file was added in the middle of a save game, the full team will be populated with real players in the next instance that there are call-ups.

Yes it works for 14.3.1.

Which file did you use to change the club name? Is this in the middle of a save game?

Remove the hashtag from in front of it and it should work.

However, if you have the club name changes.dbc in the editor data folder, I don't think it will work since data changed in a dbc file can't be overwritten by an lnc file.

Nope, can't be done using lnc files
I did everything as you said and in the game I don't see any changes... What is the problem?
You definitely haven't installed them correctly then

Can I have a screenshot of the contents of your editor data folder and the 1400>lnc and 1430>lnc folders?
what about players? their real names? Even my name came up different.
yap...
If you had bought an original version of the game, then you wouldn't have had the issue.
not working, followed the procedures... still the names are fake and keeps changing every time i log on!!!
Im on mac and I can't open the download, it just opens up VLC player and does nothing

You need to buy an original version of the game.

You need to download winrar or a similar software which extracts compressed files.
Looking really good, this! Thanks, man!

I have now the problem, that i cannot select sweden in Classic and Normal Modus. Error says: missing 12 th team in second league ....

Known problem - or have i made a mistake?

«This comment has been edited»
What version of the game are you playing? 14.3 or 14.1?
14.3.1

Ok, it seems that

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.

works not for 1400 ....

That means no real names for default db?

edit:

*confused* It works without deleting and copying the files in 1400?

edit 2:

ok, dont work with the default DB, how can i use this file for the default DB?

«This comment has been edited»
If you want to use the default database, just copy the edt and lnc folders into 1400 and the editor data files into the normal folder.

Not sure if I've understood you well...
Ok, i copied also the dbc folder into 1400, that was the error, thanks
Hey mons.. Will this work if I paste in C:\Program Files\Football Manager 2014\data\db\1430 instead of the steam folder.
I do not see a steam folder.
That would seem to indicate to me that you have a pirated version of the game, and so I frankly couldn't care less what you do.
Yea... Didn't wanna buy it this time... I have FM right from 07 to 13.. Already bought a lotta other games... Well.. Will seek my answers elsewhere.
Where should I put the `media files` folder? Inside `editor data` or under `Football Manger 2014``s folder?
As specified in the OP, the folder should be within Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2014 > editor data
hey guys
i am trying to dowload this folder bu keeps doing so as an itune folder, anyone have any ideas how to get it back to normal so can open it to copy and past the folders out please? thanks
Download WinRar so that you can extract this file.
Hi Mons, I followed the instructions you have provided but there are still some issues. The names are still all fake and the players have no face. PLEASE HELP!

If the names are still fake, that's probably because you've got a pirated copy.

This file has nothing to do with player faces - you might want to download the cut-out player faces megapack available elsewhere on the site.
Know looks of the money have changed, how do i change it back to normal
