      The file works perfectly. I just did the test on a fresh installation of Football Manager 2016 and applied this fix and it worked.
      This file works without any problems in original copies of FM 2016 (100% tested), but may not work in some pirated versions (due to crack problems or something like that).

    does this work with current games?

    I’ve been instructed by the SI to reverify my game’s cache (due to some screen elements missing). This will recreate fake.inc and any other removed or modded files.

    Will I be able co apply this fix after reverifying the cache and continue my current save with proper comp/players names?

      I’ll explain in another way
      Go to these directories:
      (your name) -> library -> Application support -> Steam -> steamapps -> common -> football manager 2016 -> data -> db -> 1600 -> lnc >
      (your name) -> library -> Application support -> Steam -> steamapps -> common -> football manager 2016 -> data -> db -> 1601 -> lnc >
      (your name) -> library -> Application support -> Steam -> steamapps -> common -> football manager 2016 -> data -> db -> 1630 -> lnc >

      Within each of these locations you have a folder named “All”. you just have to delete these folder (named: “All”) for each of the locations that I mentioned earlier.
      After that, you just need to download our file…which is basically the new “all” folder that you have to extract to these three locations.

            Go to the following folders:
            C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2016\data\db\1600\dbc

    Do we have to delete the ‘fake.inc’ ‘n-league.inc’ etc.. in the new ‘ALL’ folder that you guys provided for us in the link above ^? Im still seeing Fake names in the German national team – though this could be due to ‘Note: National Team Players names only take effect when national squad release their first international match.’ – I just dont want to start a new save to find out half-way through the season that there are still fake players etc..

    Only if you want to activate the real names of the teams in the Japanese league.. then yes, you need to delete the file ‘n-league.inc’ in the new ‘all’ folder.
    In the case of ‘fake.inc’ you do not need to do anything.
    Do not worry about the German national team (yes, they only change after the first international match).. After installing the file, you must consult the names of German teams/Bundesliga teams (for example). If they are correct it is because the file has been installed correctly.

    Hello, thanks for this patch. I have followed these instructions precisely but am not having any luck. Is there something that needs to be done with the original greek file on a mac? I’ve deleted and replaced ‘all’ in 1600, 1601 and 1630 tirelessly. Thanks kindly.
