From what you've said, I'm afraid you seem to have installed the editor data files incorrectly Can you upload a screenshot of your editor data folder so I can confirm?

The Portuguese names changes are effected using the lnc files rather than the dbc file in the editor data folder, which is why they appear and others don't. Either way, you can ensure the correct, short names display for the French clubs and all the others by using the process I explained in my last post


Hi Mons,

Sorry for the late reply - here is a screenshot of my editor data folder.

I also tried to open the dbc file in notepad, but it just looks like a random mess of strange characters...

If this is in the middle of a save game, the club names will not be changed, unfortunately.

They can be displayed in a save-game, however, by opening the City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc file with Notepad, scrolling to the French section, and removing the # from in front of all the entries. FYI, the # "instructs" the game to ignore that line and removing obviously lets the game read and apply the changes.

This method will however lose all the current club nicknames, so it's up to you if you want to apply it.


Thanks for your reply - it was done before I started a new game though. Portuguese clubs have also been renamed correctly - Benfica instead of SLB for example - so I found it strange that all the French clubs still had their very long names...
Hi, I just downloaded this - mainly to get the French club names correct. It has changed the competition names alright (UEFA Champions League and such), but French teams are still showing up as "OM" instead of Marseille, "LOSC" instead of Lille, "Olympique Lyonnais" instead of just Lyon etc. Should they not have changed or have I managed to do something wrong?
