FM13 Real Names Fixes File - FINAL - v1.4 [21/3/2013] for 13.3 patch
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 one in this file is a slightly more updated version than the kits colour changes file. But yes, they are essentially the same thing, so you can safely delete the older file...
Hi mons. Thanks for this great work.

Is it possible to just copy over the dbc directory from the update, rather than do the whole thing from scratch, without any issues? I know that it's always advisable to do a 'clean' update, but if it's just those three files that have been changed, surely there won't be any issue?

*Edit - Never mind. I just saw that you updated some Editor Data files also.

Cheers.

Mons I found that if you just drag the folders in and not delete the old ones and then drag and drop the new ones then the problem doesn't happen.
Hi,

I've not played FM in a couple of years, I wasn't even aware of the German team issue. I followed the instructions in the video but the German team is still all grey fake players. Although the German league is now showing as Bundesliga...
The German national team will be populated with real players when players are next called up to a match.
Thanks for the reply.

I am having problems with step 6. The folder i copied the downloaded file to doesn't have a folder named "editor data files". Can anyone help?

Yep I have the same problem. What should I do to fix this?
i don't have a mac, but in pc it's called just "editor data" and it's normal not to have it, just create it.
Thx for your work!
I just wantes to ask you if you used the newest kits colour changes?
hello mons... as always great work... just wanted to add that I noticed that Algeria's third default kit is showing.... is the procedure the same...to delete it in editor?? thanx..
didn't fix the names of german national team. any help?

Real German players will be called up to the national team the next time that players are called up to the national team. If the EURO Cup and EURO Vase's names have been changed to Champions League and Europa League, then the file is definitely working.
Too bad the long name change for Portugal clubs still doesn't work. Must be hardcoded then. But I noticed the nicknames are gone as well. Or is that perhaps licensing issues as well.

Hello there! Thank you for all the efforts you're doing. There is one thing that bugs me for the last 6-7 FM editions. My hometown club in the Serbian Superleague has changed its name 7 years ago, but for some reason FM keeps using the old name So, is there a possibility to change it manually or do I have to ask you, oh mons almighty, for a favour?

The club is Hajduk Kula, (longer: FK Hajduk Rodic MB Kula). Can I change it to Hajduk (short) and FK Hajduk Kula (long)?

Thanks a million!
Thanks Ernest - it will be changed for the next version of the file

Edit - I won't change the short name to plain Hajduk as it conflicts with the Split club.

If you want to start a new game with the team name changed, then send me a PM

Start a new game and files should be there and ready to start and play.

Hi all,

does anyone that use this file and kit colour changes plays in an online game? preferably as a server?

i suspect these files are the reason that my games are rendered unplayable, the client gets a crash when he tries to join.
Going by past experience, all users need to have the same files when playing online.
we have all the same files, i configured is machine via remote access.

i'm just asking, because if users have this in online games and have no problems, then i can rule out this pack, and focus on his machine being the problem.

i just cleaned his fm cache, and no crash occurred, so...

Hello,

can you please fix the rapidsharelink? It does not work.
Hey Mons,

why do you have a ton of club names commented? (#)
i don't remember the file being like this, all of france, most from italy, etc.
i also see some with #@

thanks

«This comment has been edited»
That's because the short names are changed via the Club Name Changes.dbc file from the editor data folder.

The reason for this is that if they are changed via an lnc file, then the club's nicknames are lost. This was added in FM12 and I'm imagining it was for licensing reasons.

I do however include the vast majority (some may have slipped through the net) of changes which I do in the Club Name Changes.dbc file into the City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc file, in order that people who have started a save game already can have the respective changes in their game. Another reason is that in the future, the nicknames being lost issue might no longer be there and I would then just need to remove the hashtags...

Entries in lnc files preceded by # are not 'read' by the game, so it's just a case of removing the hashtag.

Entries with #@ are there to remind me to check something regarding that particular entry
cant d/l from the mirrors. Any ideas?
Hi. I like this update, but I have one problem.

Can i change back the names you cave to the awards? For example i am playing in Holland, and the award names are in Dutch. I don't understand Dutch, therefore I can't understand the names.

i do like that the league names are now 100% correct, but I want everything to remain in English.

how can I do this? Thanks.
City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc is this save compatable? if so not working for me

Thanks for your answer.

What are club nicknames? where do i see those?
i'm not using the dbc file you mentioned, in order to avoid the crashes i've talked before, so i'll have to remove the #.

Delete the awards file. Or open it with notepad and delete the Dutch awards only.

Thanks for your answer.

i'm not using the dbc file you mentioned, in order to avoid the crashes i've talked before, so i'll have to remove the #.

Club nicknames can be viewed in the club's information screens. Man Utd's nickname is the Red Devils etc.
ohhh, i've never seen them, so i guess i don't want nicknames working, will definetly remove the # on the lnc.

thanks for helping.

For future versions, please add all names in the LNC that you put on the DBC, so, if the user wants it (one like me that doesn't uses the DBC), he can just remove the #, i know it's hard to maintain two files and don't mess up

thank you.
