Start with Beta FM18 and then update real name fix

Can we start a save with the Beta and, latter on, update the game?

Hello mates,

Ive never started a save with the beta before, always waited for the final version but this year i feel i might wanna start it earlier on - yes, the hungry for it is at its peak - and i would like to know if anyone knows some stuff about using the save in the beta and then, with the complete game real fix add-ons, if they reflect itself in your save.

For instance, im thinking about the Real Name fix for clubs and the national teams issues like Holland and Germany. If i download them once the game is out and place them in the correct folders, will that reflect itself when i open my already created save career with the BETA or i would have to start from scratch in order for it to be visible in game.

Does anyone has any idea from pasts experiences using the Beta?

As I explained on live chat, real names fix should work on an already started saved game.

However, if FM18 is like FM17, fixing Brazilian club names will require starting a new save though.

Also the "fake" national teams of Holland and Germany is a mystery. A fix might work in an older save with the next international call up, or it might require a new save.
Whatever happens in your every day life, coming here should be an escape from it; so cheer up and talk FM :)
