    As with previously installments of Football Manager, FM13 has certain files that prevent you from managing certain national teams and from current real players showing up in their rosters due to licensing issues.

    The national teams with the problem:
    • Germany
    • China
    • South Korea
    • Japan

    How to fix

    Fixing this is relatively simple, but the effects will only apply to games you have created after fixing it.

    Go to:

    Windows
    Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2013 \ data \ db \ 1300 \ lnc \ all

    Mac
    [username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps >common > football manager 2013 > data > db > 1300 > lnc > all

    Here you will find 3 or more files:
    • fake.lnc
    • lic_dan_swe_fra.lnc
    • nleague.lnc.
    Simply delete these files before you create a new game.

    Here is the complete list of what is unlocked by deleting them:
    • National teams of Germany, China, South Korea and Japan become playable.
    • Enable player pics for national teams of The Netherlands and France.
    • Fix real name of Oliver Kahn (he's with nickname Jens Mustermann).
    • Fix names for various Danish, Swedish and French competitions.
    • Restore real players for the team Albirex Niigata (Singapore).
    • Fix colors and names for various clubs, stadiums, cities in Asian countries.

    Remove the files from patches with data updates as well


    Official data updates (patches with data updates, not all patches) contain these files too, so if your game has been patched then you will have to delete the files again in the relevant update folder.

    For example if your FM13 gets updated with a patch that includes data update (usually happens for January transfer update only) go to:

    Windows
    Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ steamapps \ common \ football manager 2013 \ data \ updates \ update-13XX \ db \ 13XX \ lnc \ all

    Mac
    [username] > library > Application support > Steam > steamapps > common > football manager 2013 > data > updates > update-13XX > db > 13XX > lnc > all

    And again, delete all files inside.


    Whatever happens in your every day life, coming here should be an escape from it; so cheer up and talk FM :)

    Thanks for the help! But I was wondering if this affects the clubs? The bayern munich team on my save is all greyed out apart from a few none germ players. I've checked a few of the other clubs and they are perfectly fine! I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else

    That depends if you have loaded the Bundesliga.

    I have the bundesliga loaded, it's one of the nations I always have loaded and I've never encountered this with any other save

    No, you have to start a new save.
