I don’t have any files in the “steamapps” folder… where should i extract the “all” file ?

Darren

Make sure you have followed the path correctly, I don’t see how a legal copy of the game could work if there’s nothing in your steamapps folder.

I installed FM 2015 on a different hard disc…

Johnny Karp

Then the correct “steamapps” folder should be on that hard disk.

I also didn’t have the folder called all in the above mentioned path. It is located in the Inc folder.

Any idea on how to do this on mac?

Johnny Karp
Guest

Yes, you should look into USERNAME Library Application Support Steam SteamApps Common Football Manager 2015 Data db 1500. In theory that’s where you will find the folder that you have to replace with the downloaded one.

Worth noting for Mac newbies that your Library folder is hidden on later versions of OSX. :)

Any plans for fixing Japan club names?

Johnny Karp

I can try to do that if there is demand, sure.

I am confused on why you need to DL this and replace the “ALL” folder. You do realize that all you need to do is go in and delete that folder that it unlocks everything. That is all. You don’t need to DL any type of fix. The files are a lock sorta speak, and once you delete them, there is no longer a lock or name change.

So what am I missing buy just deleting the files rather than replacing them with your files?

Johnny Karp
Guest

It’s true, deleting that folder does fix some of the problems but not nearly all of them. Some club name or competition name changes can’t be fixed by deleting the folder, that’s why you have to replace the files with the modified ones. I wouldn’t have spent days on modifying those files for no purpose :)

I installed it like described above. The names of the competitions and the clubs are fixed but there are still fake names in the German and Japanees national team. South Korea is fixed. Can anyone tell me why the fix don’t work with the German and Japan national team??

Johnny Karp
Guest

As said in the post, you will have to wait until they select a squad for a match, they should be fixed.

This is what I found on Apple support regarding Yosemite: “The Library folder is hidden. If you need to open it for some reason, click the desktop to make sure you’re in the Finder, hold down the Option key, then choose Go > Library.”

Johnny Karp

Give me an example of a fake name so that I can understand exactly what the problem is.

Jens

Tried with Chelsea and Djurgården, still fake names.

Johnny Karp
Guest

If you have fake player names in your squad that might be because you don’t own a legal copy of the game. If you mean club or competition names, please give me more details.

If you don’t have a steamapp folder like me, go to the directory where you installed the game and there should be a data folder there. From there on it’s data > db > 1500 > lnc > all

Just extract the files to the ‘all’ folder. Thank me later

Using OSX yosemite and there’s no steamapps folder in my library>application support anybody else had this problem? If so how did you solve it?

Johnny Karp

On Yosemite Tthe Library folder is hidden. Click the desktop to make sure you’re in the Finder, hold down the Option key, then choose Go > Library.

When this is applied to 15.3.0 patch, many clubs lose their nicknames.

Johnny Karp
Guest

Can you give me one or two examples? That shouldn’t happen because these files have nothing to do with the nicknames.

Cabbage
Guest

I didn’t have too much time, but just loaded top tiers of England, Germany, France, Italy, Portugal, Ukraine, Holland. England, Italy, Spain and France seems fine, in Germany: Wolfsburg, Dortmund, Schalke, Mainz, Augsburg and few others; in Holland: AZ, Groningen, Twente, Utretcht and few others; In Portuga: Benfica, Braga, Porto and few others; InUkraine: Dynamo Kiev,Illichivets, Metalist, Dnipro.

Actually, I just checked my 15.0.0 (with name fix applied) save and clubs like Schalke, Dortmund, Dnipro, Dynamo Kiev don’t have one there either, so maybe they never had one. Though, I know that FM14 had them.

Johnny Karp
Guest

That might be the case due to licensing reasons. All I know is that when I made the files for the fix I never entered or altered any nicknames.

I have question this folder is really hard to find on Windows 8 , can you give me a hint or something else to try to do that thing, pls ? Thanks.

Johnny Karp
Guest

It should be in the same place, either Program Files on Program Files (x86) if you are using a 64-bit version of Windows. If you still can’t find it you can always use the search feature to look for it.
