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
v1.0 of this file is out. It's intended for version 14.1.3 of FM14

In addition to the usual award, competition, city, licensing and stadium name changes (which are all save-game compatible), this file includes 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.
*It includes the proper names for Italian and French clubs to circumvent licensing restrictions.
*It also adds real-life media and journalists, with 22 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.

Please keep in mind that these files 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.
Thanks for the work.
Up stuff Mons.
You sir, are amazing!
Quick question - for the media files, can I just keep the files in there or do I have to move them into the editor data folder? Thanks for the work as always

They will work in both instances. I have placed them all into one folder in order that they are better organised...
Wake up in the morning...going to take a look at sortitoutsi to see if there is something new...bam!...mons delivers again. Thank you mons.
Still play FM 2013. And with Christian Maldini is 1.67 tall. How do I modify? And how do I change the physiognomy of it in 3D?

Thank you in advance for your attention.
Hi Mons,

Quick question I went the lnc file for club, city, stadium names there were some with @ after the hashtag(#), does the @ have an impact on the game? Just curious thats all.

This was the first thing I downloaded and installed onto the game.

Thanks for the fix.
So Mons (from your instruction below on the inc file)...I want to clarify it's that simple.....for example, if I want Freiburg's stadium to be called "Mage-Solar-Stadion" I just delete the hash tag on the left.....and all the Czech Stadium name changes will work if I delete the hashtag next to the word "Czech stadiums"? I am using the Beta version and it seems fine.....Were there a lot more changes to the City,Club & Stadium names to make it worthwhile to switch the inc file? (I have already started my saves, so the dbc files are not an option for me at this point)..

"However, for those who don't particularly mind, all the changes made by the Club Name Changes.dbc file are also included in the club name.lnc file. They are, however disabled by default. To re-enable any of them, simple remove the hashtag (#) from in front of the respective entries in the lnc file (which can be opened using notepad). Hope this is clear enough."
Thanks,

Michael
Thanks for new real name fix patch

This file does not modify any player data, so I'm not sure why you're asking here . You can use the editor to change anything you want in Christian Maldini's profile.

The @ are there for me to check in future versions of this file for possible inclusion

The hashtag has to be infront of the line in question to disable it. In both the Freiburg stadium and the Czech stadiums' cases, the hashtag is in front of the preceding line, which I include to clarify what is being edited. In the case below, for the game to ignore the stadium change, the # would need to be immediately before "STADIUM_NAME_CHANGE".

# Freiburg
"STADIUM_NAME_CHANGE" 1324 "Mage-Solar-Stadion" ""
All city and stadium names are changed using the lnc file and are not included in the dbc file. There were some minor changes in the Club Name Changes.dbc file when compared to the beta release, predominantly involving lower-league French and Italian teams. You con continue using your current set-up with no major effect imo.
Thanks for further clarification Mons!!!
One of THE must have files for FM, thanks for your work Mons, my career may begin
Japan National Team still fake bro
Japan National Team still fake bro

If you're in the middle of a save game, you have to wait till the next time that national teams call up players for the German and Japanese national teams to have real players.
there are many mistakes for the Italy Lega Pro awards.

Miglior allenatore dell'anno should be Migliore squadra della settimana
Miglior Squadra dell'Anno should be Miglior gol del mese
Brilliant job.

Only one question: is there a way to have Germany with its real colour (white and black for first kit, green for the away one) and not blue like it's in the game? I tried with the game editor but it doesn't solve anything

Thanks for this, they've been corrected - there were also some new award additions in the official database which I've since added. I'll release a new version in the coming days, possibly even tonight...

Do you have any other editor data files perchance? It's showing as white and black for first kit & green and white for the away one respectively in my game

thanks mate. I think that the mistakes were related to the IDs. I believe that SI changed some IDs because starting from season 14/15 the Lega Pro Seconda Divisione won't exist anymore and Lega Pro Prima Divisione become Serie C with 3 groups.

Don't know if the above could be of any help.
Is this compatible with all languages or just english?

EDIT: Ok, the answer is yes, reading this page of the thread
Sorry for the stupid question.

hey mons. i'm having sort of crashing problems that are described here:

http://sortitoutsi.net/forums/topic/8492/game-crashing-please-help

Is it possible that using beta game real name fix on a full release of the game caused that crash?

thnx

EDIT: It crashed again so I don't think that's it

I've sent PM but it would be right to write here.
There is a problem with Turkish names.

For example;

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 1301394 "UEFA Þampiyonlar Ligi" "Turkish"

It should be renamed as "UEFA Şampiyonlar Ligi"

Letters to be replaced are:

ý to be replaced with ı
Ý to be replaced with İ
þ to be replaced with ş
Þ to be replaced with Ş
ð to be replaced with ğ
Ð to be replaced with Ğ
If you want, I can help you with italian names of awards and some competitions. The awards name have a wrong form. First should be the title and after the name of "society" that promotes it.
For example:
"Associazione Italiana Calciatori Miglior Difensore"
should be "Miglior Difensore Associazione Italiana Calciatori" (I suggest also to put a - symbol to divide title and society).
Short names seems correct.
Also some competitions have original names and this isn't good in italian. Champions League and Europa League are fine, but some others, like Super Cup should be called Supercoppa Europea or UEFA
If you want, I can fix all and send you via mail. Contact me in pvt.

I have fixed the award names as you suggested in the meantime - thanks for that
