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.

Agreed, definitely makes the game a lot better with this fix! thanks for making this guide
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
thanks man!!!
CHEERS
i need to start new save to see the teams, or just with my old save?

No, you have to start a new save.
