FM13 Real Names Fixes File - FINAL - v1.4 [21/3/2013] for 13.3 patch Installation Instructions
This file is intended for FM13.3, 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.

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.

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

Step 1: Go to

PC
 Program Files \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ football manager 2013 \ data \ db \ 1300 
AND
 Program Files \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ football manager 2013 \ data \ db \ 1330 
MAC
USERNAME \ Library \ Application Support \ Steam \ SteamApps \ Common \ Football Manager 2013 \ Data \ db \ 1300
AND
USERNAME \ Library \ Application Support \ Steam \ SteamApps \ Common \ Football Manager 2013 \ Data \ db \ 1330
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 2013
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 the 30 files in the folder from 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
The sortitoutsi real names fix changes the fake names in Football Manager 13 to the proper, real life names for awards, cities, stadiums, competitions and clubs, 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.

It also includes real-life media and journalists, with 27 media files added which encompass all major footballing nations and continents. You will however need to start a new game for these media files to work.

Thanks to TomDixon77 for his assistance in checking these files do work. Please note this is only a beta version, which will be updated when the full game is released to reflect any changes needed and errors encountered.
just a note: Sporting CP, SL Benfica, FC Porto and SC Braga (in Portugal) have B teams now. can you change their names, too? thks in advance.

The download I have only contains 4 files not 5 as indicated above (I am a PC user)
Any advice ?

Oops sorry my bad, can't read simply instruction now.

All sorted, sorry

Mons edit - not the right place for this

«This comment has been edited»
thanks for this
Works great, thank you kindly.
Can u post some ss ?
No, as I don't have the beta version yet, so I'd have to resort to one of the 1011 users who do to post one for you...
thanks for all your work.

you consider this beta to be what % of the final work?

i always edit some things to my likings, so i just want to know if i should wait for the final to start editing.

thanks.
I get Unauthorized 401 error
Good morning Mons, will this also work on the full game or will there be new files when the full game is out ?

thanks.

There are a number of competitions who were missing in FM12 and whose correct names are included in the file, and which I'd like to check if they are in FM13. There's a number of club and stadium names which I want to check if they have been changed in FM13 before changing them myself (including the B teams of the big Portuguese clubs, for example). I also want to check if any new awards have been added so I can amend them accordingly.

The bulk of the file is correct, however.

If you want to include some stuff in future releases of this file, you are more than welcome to add them to this thread or PM me, so that you can avoid having to do them yourself every year. You will naturally be credited for all your work

Both. You can use these files with the full game, but I certainly intend, as above, to add and amend any necessary stuff.
hi mons

just want to let you know that the Malaysian competition 'Astro Piala Malaysia' is now called 'Era Piala Malaysia'

and also 'Astro Malaysia Liga Super' and 'Astro Malaysia Liga Premier' should be changed to 'Astro Liga Super Malaysia' and 'Astro Liga Premier Malaysia' respectively, as the latter two is grammatically correct in the Malay language

hope this helps, and thanks for uploading the files
Some screen shots for ya.

Thanks for these - they will be rectified in the next version of the file.

Thanks to terrypmarshall for the screenshots as well, they've been added to the OP.

Hi mons

I said to only delete the dbc, edt and lnc folders and replace them. You seem to have deleted the other content of the folder as well. Either restore them from your recycle bin or verify the integrity of the game files from Steam, which will recreate the old files.
No problem on the screen shots, let me know if you want more and what you want them of. Good job on the editing by the way, much appreciated.

"NATION_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 138 "The Republic of China" ""
"NATION_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 138 "Chinese Taipei" ""

something wrong?
I think its the same thing mate. The Republic of China is otherwise known as Taiwan and the capital is Taipei City

Wikipedia:

Taipei City (/ˌtaɪˈpeɪ/; Chinese: 臺北市 or 台北市; pinyin: Táiběi Shì; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Tâi-pak Chhī) is the capital of the Republic of China (Taiwan).

Chinese Taipei is the designated name used by the Republic of China (ROC), commonly known as Taiwan, to participate in some international organizations and almost all sporting events, including the Olympics, Paralympics, Asian Games, Asian Para Games and FIFA World Cup.


From what I've read it seems that there is political conflict about what the area should be named so that would suggest why typing in either chinese taipei or republic of chinna into football manager search will take you to the same page.

Hope that was of help

FIFA official website shows long name is Chinese Taipei

http://i937.photobucket.com/albums/ad214/master_wu_pictures/pic00_zpsf37c1946.jpg
Aye according to FIFA but what about those that believe the long name should be Republic of China, like I say its a political thing. They both warrant the same ID in FM because they are both the same country. If they gave separate ID's to both the Chinese Taipei and ROC They would be classed as two separate entities within football manager and therefore two separate teams or countries whereas they are just one. I don't know why they just didn't stick with Taiwan lol.

I agree though that the long name should be chinese taipei as issued by FIFA

Following the above conversation, I've decided it'll be named as Chinese Taipei in the forthcoming update
I'm getting a 401: status unauthorised when I hit the download button. I'm a premium member all paid up, so not sure what's going on. Any ideas?
goooooooooood! thanks lads!
