FM12 Real Names for Clubs, Competitions and Awards Fix
The Susie Real Names for Clubs, Competitions and Awards Fix does what it says on the tin. It includes real-life names for awards, competitions and clubs and fixes the issue with the German national team not calling up real players.
This version contains additional dbc and edt files which further enhance this update, fixing issues such as short names replacing nicknames and the 3 letter code used for competitions. Note that the new dbc and edt files will not take effect until a new game is started, as opposed to lnc files which can be changed after starting a new game.
Click the download button above to get the compressed download, go to:
- (for PCs) ...Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\football manager 2012\data\db\1200 and 1220
- (for Macs) USERNAME \ Library \ Application Support \ Steam \ SteamApps \ Common \ Football Manager 2012 \ Data \ db \ 1200 and 1220
Remove the existing dbc, edt and lnc folders in the path displayed above which apply to your installation method before replacing them with the dbc, edt and lnc folders you downloaded from the link.
A new game is not necessary for the lnc files to take effect, but you will have to close FM12 if it is running. The edt and dbc files will only take effect when you start a new game.
This file now also includes real-life media and journalists, with 23 media files added which encompass all major footballing nations and several others. These media files need you to start a new game to appear in the game, unfortunately.
To add the real life media go to Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2012. Open the "editor data" file, if this file doesn't exist then create it. Go back to your downloaded file and open the folder called "media files". Copy the 23 files into the editor data folder.
Note that some of the removed files in these 3 folders will be re-installed automatically each time Steam patches the game. I recommend keeping the downloaded file elsewhere on your hard disk so when this happens, you can just remove the re-installed folders and place the ones from this file back where they belong.
