Download Real Names Fix for Football Manager 2012
written by Johnny Karp
Due to licensing restrictions some competition, awards and team names in Football Manager 2012 are not the real ones. Sports Interactive can’t do much about that but we can ;) What I am offering you today is a way to see the real competition names, real award names and real team names in FM 2012 through a very small download and a very simple procedure. Once you install the fix you will be able to see glorious real names in your game, like this:
So, instead of Premier Division or Champions Cup you will see the real names that you are used to but this fix offers a lot more: real names for Japanese Clubs, real names for International Awards and quite a few more.
Now let’s get to it. First download the file by clicking the picture below:
How to install
The file is a zip archive so you will have to extract it to a location of your choice using an archive utility program like WinZip, 7-zip or others. Once you extract the files you will have a folder containing four files as shown in the screen shot below:
Now you will have to copy those four files to the following location and overwrite any old files if asked:
Program Files>Steam>steamapps>common>football manager 2012>data>db>1200>lnc>all
Once there will be patches released by SI you will also have to copy those files to the update locations, those will be like this (XXXX replaces the update number, those will probably be 1210, 1220 and so on):
Program Files>Steam>steamapps>common>football manager 2012>data>updates>update-XXXX>db>XXXX>lnc>all
Program Files>Steam>steamapps>common>football manager 2012>data>db>XXXX>lnc>all
Please note that you will have to copy the files to both locations listed once you install an official patch.
It’s quite simple but if you have any trouble you can always ask me for help. If you like this download please show your support by tweeting this post, liking it on Facebook or sharing it via Google +1, all these links are just below the post title. Thanks and enjoy the game!
