FM Tutorials - How to unlock Germany national team on FM15
As with previous installments of Football Manager, FM15 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. Go to:

Windows
Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ Football Manager 2015 \ data \ db \ 1500 \ lnc \ all
AND
Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ SteamApps \ common \ Football Manager 2015 \ data \ db \ 1530 \ lnc \ all

Mac
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > SteamApps > common > Football Manager 2015 > data > db > 1500 > lnc > all
AND
[username] > library > Application support > Steam > SteamApps > common > Football Manager 2015 > data > db > 1530 > lnc > all

Here you will find 6 files in each folder:
  • fake.lnc
  • italian awards.lnc
  • korean name change.lnc
  • lic_dan_swe_fra.lnc
  • nleague.lnc
  • turkish name change.lnc
Simply delete the 2 files in bold (fake.lnc and nleague.lnc) and create a new savegame.

What exactly is fixed by removing these files?

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.

If you're still having trouble, watch the video tutorial below.



Enjoy :)

    Hi Ziechael, usually it will be needed. This happens because when you make an update you've a "different" db.

    @Ziechael: You need to repeat this each time there is a new DATA update, which happens only once throughout the season for the transfers of January transfer window. For the numerous hot-fix patches which are getting released, you don't have to do anything.

    Great work as always Stam. Do you happen to know if this will need to be done each time an update is applied or when the main release is activated for Beta users?
