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.

20$ that these people has a pirate copy.
no booking house is accepting that bet, odds are too low
More fool me for trying to help them then
I need more details. How can you tell it's not working? Please make sure you follow the installation instructions carefully. If that fails, please post a screenshot of the folder you installed the files in.

Thanks, excellent fix!

Didn't like it so much when i noticed that my club name (Vitória SC) was changed to "Guimarães", but this solution nailed it! :
I used the FM13 editor - the files still work

You can change this yourself. Open the City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc file and insert the following line therein


"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 	xx	"Manchester United"	""
with xx being the club's UID.

Have you cleared the cache and reloaded the skin within the game, either from the main screen or in the saved game?

This fix worked first time for me. I think most people dont either read the installation instructions properly or forget to do the last part. There is a helpful video linked on here which shows how to do it.

I don't see Steam anywhere in the installation path. So either you installed the file incorrectly, or you're running a pirate copy of the game in which case I'm not giving you any help at all.



Thanks, excellent fix!

Didn't like it so much when i noticed that my club name (Vitória SC) was changed to "Guimarães", but this solution nailed it! :

Ideally, I'd love to be able to change all the Portuguese club names to be the proper ones, but my hands are tied with the licensing restrictions on renaming Portuguese clubs imposed by SI
Mons, Derby County have changed their stadium from Pride Park to iPro Stadium ( I hate companies that have a lower case letter followed by an upper case letter). In the lnc folder using the city, club and stadium names lnc file if I add the line # Debry Couty "STADIUM_NAME_CHANGE" Id No. "iPro Stadium" "" work? of course i would need derby county's id no.

I understand what you mean, but you know that all portugal, except Vitória SC fans, call that club Guimarães (short name, since we can't use long names, otherwise we would have both), so that's why i've sent that name.
Mons, Derby County have changed their stadium from Pride Park to iPro Stadium ( I hate companies that have a lower case letter followed by an upper case letter). In the lnc folder using the city, club and stadium names lnc file if I add the line # Debry Couty "STADIUM_NAME_CHANGE" Id No. "iPro Stadium" "" work? of course i would need derby county's id no.

Add the below to your file

# Derby
"STADIUM_NAME_CHANGE" 107145 "iPro Stadium" ""
Thanks Mons, it has worked a treat.
There's an error with a Portuguese competition. I've noticed it before, in FM13.
The Portuguese League Cup awards aren't right:
The Goal of the competition and Man of Match award are switched
Noted - will be changed in the next version of the file.
Please note that this file is intended for use with the beta version of FM14 and that some mistakes may crop up. If you notice anything amiss, please post in here so that it can be rectified by the time the game comes out

The media sources will be included in a later version of this file as I haven't had time to check them yet. The ones in previous versions should work fine, however, for those who want to move them over.

Thanks to everybody who assisted me with this work and to all the helpful suggestions.


I followed all the steps u mentioned above, but it didn't work with me! Names of players, and managers are still fake!
Please help me. Thank u
So I started a new save after the latest update and forgot to apply this file before starting the save. I seem to remember someone telling me that during FM13, we were able to apply this file even after a save has been started and that the German NT should fix itself whenever the next batch of call-ups occurs. Does this still apply for FM 14? I would hate to have to start the save all over because of this, but if it's impossible to fix the NT without restarting the save then I guess I'm out of luck.


EDIT:

I've now gotten to the next call-up batch and it's indeed fixed now so you can disregard this comment.

Thanks again as always for the file though, makes the game more enjoyable when everything is as realistic as possible.

I tried changing QPR's short name from Q.P.R. to QPR. Usually I'd simply change it in the editor but since I'm playing FMC, editing is not an option. Unfortunately.

Is this correct?

#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 701 "QPR" ""

«This comment has been edited»
Nope, you have to remove the # from in-front of the code for the game to read it. Otherwise, it should be fine.
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 129562 "Puchar Polski" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 129562 "Puchar Polski" ""

Logos.

Hello there,

Great pack; i have 1 problem though.

Everything else seems fine; i.e Champions Cup called Champions League, real media etc etc but the Germany team has never populated real players for some reason. coming to the end of the first season; Arsenal who are 5 points clear of me have never had Ozil, Podolski or Mertersacker called up - GERMANY team have always had fake players....

Any ideas, kinda killed my game as i thought it was sorted.

thanks

Jamie

You must have missed a step in the installation instructions, one stage is overwriting those files in the steamapps directory. If you did that then there's no way you'd have fake German players.

The only possibility is that the game updated before you started playing and overwrote the changes. I'm not totally sure if that happens or not (Mons?)
