    I'm on the Mac and have a lot of problems. I have installed i´the pack correctly in the right folder, but my beloved Schalke is stilled called Gelsenkirchen?
  • Patres10's avatar
    @danielfm you have a tipo in a slovak club there. MŠK Žilina not MŠK Žylina
  • ahasvold's avatar
    Any solution on the european cups names? Really like everything else on this name fix :)
  • Onyewu's avatar
    Hi Daniel....I tried changing the to one name for all languages, then tried deleting the other languages to see if that didn't work for me.......thanks anyway.
  • danielfm's avatar
    I found a solution to the problem of names, but it is not too good. When I set one name for all languages (eg Champions League) is in the game is ok. But when I want to add a translation to the other then it is returned to the default name. I'll try to find a solution yet, but if it does not work I'll do a version with English names.

    Thanks 9Icardi9.....very familiar with Susie as I have used it for a decade until this year....I liked Daniel's as it was customizable in I have customized a lot in Daniel's file, I will probably not change back to Susie at this point....will just have to live with it I guess....thanks anyway!!!

    @Onyewu until waiting for the update try this

    work for me, delete "all" and "greek" folders and put only files to "Inc" folder (DB 1500 and 1530).
  • Onyewu's avatar
    I see a few of us have this issue.....

    After updating to 15.3, the Champions League, Europa League and other Euro comps have reverted back to the default fake names. I have removed the inc file from the 15.3 update and tried different combinations of your files in both 15.0 & 15.3 without anything changing. The league comps & team names have not been affected.

    Any ideas? You never know what kind of havoc each update will bring us.

  • scottyxander's avatar
    @9Icardi9 It has to do with the fact that they added a new db folder for the new update. The club names still work but competition names don't. I've basically just downloaded the name fix from sortitousi and I'm only using the competition name file. The competition names in that version are horrible though but at least it's better than the default names in the game. I just wish this guy would hurry up and update the files already.
  • 9Icardi9's avatar
    sorry work only file of sortitoutsi because has been updated
  • 9Icardi9's avatar
    @scottyxander @usert4 delete the folders "all" and "greek" in "Inc" folder to DB->1500 and put only files of Daniel's Real Name ;)
  • usert4's avatar

  • persee's avatar
    Iran's league is "Persian Gulf Pro League" not Iran Pro League. Saudi Arabai league name also changed. Lots of names are old
  • Checeg Andrei Alexandru's avatar
  • stevros88's avatar
    Hamburg's full name is Hamburger Sportverein, so 'HSV Hamburg' is incorrect. It should just be Hamburger SV.
  • NVDTahir's avatar
    Just to add to what Spanish Red said, in both of the files, FC United of Manchester is named as "United of Manchester" which isn't correct. Hope you fix this, but otherwise it's a really well done! thanks
  • spurs2905's avatar
    Hey man in the next update would it be possible to include the real stadium names for teams in the A-League? SI didn't get the licences for them this time around so I would greatly appreciate it. Keep up the good work man!
  • AK78's avatar
    Very nice work but it messes the Greek names of the teams (they stop been in greek language)anyone know how to fix that???
  • Spanish Red's avatar
    I don't know why you need a file with FC for the club names as they are very rarely, if ever, used in print or in the media. However, you have to be careful if you remove them all. FC United of Manchester, for example, is never ever known as United of Manchester, so removing the FC file would make their name totally wrong.

    I have uploaded a new version which fix this :)
