forbidden names.bnc

Recommended Posts

Funny stuff in the edt folder (right next to the lnc folder - FM15/data/db/1500/edt in Steam). Open it up with notepad. Are they "forbidden" for players' managers or regens? Either way there's tons of war criminals and murderers in there, next to a couple weird ones and stuff like "Dick Leak" (seriously)

My guess is they are names that cannot appear as regen players. For obvious reasons.

Call me juvenile but, "Dick Flick" had me in stitches due to knowing a, "Richard Flick".

In the DB folder there is a file called forbidden names, responsible for not allowing newgens with certain names. There we have names like Ernesto Guevara, Osama Bin Laden, some serial killers and some sexual connotations with the name Dick (e.g. Dick Fest). For me it`s a buzzkill. FM has always been delivering such tasty gimmicks for the players and having a newgen called Dick Love has always been bringing smile to gamers` faces. Of course, you can delete the file and still enjoy the fun, but the question remains: WHY did you do that?

What is more - the figure of Ernesto Guevara (much hated by me and all thinking people) is a still a source of inspiration in Latin American countries (so are Stalin, Lenin, etc. for that matter!) - so it is also a fact-bending thing to remove this name from the data pool. We have historical evidence of players like Stalin Jose Rivas and Fidel Guevara (double impact!) pulling their weight.

My offer is - remove this file. One of the first things I did was to delete it.

Yeah, nobody is capable of thought except right-wing Polish nationalists - definitely not Hispanic people! :rolleyes:

Scandalous if the Comandante is listed along with bin Laden etc.

I think I actually saw a Slobodan Milosevic a couple years ago. He was Montenegrin, though. You'd think only a couple of them would be common enough to pop up - Hugo Chavez, Eric Harris, Wayne Kerr...

There are reasons for all of these, some political, some just common sense :)

so, is there a "name seed" file somewhere so you could actively put those names into the mix? Just...wondering. :rolleyes:

you could delete the file, and it should work (I guess it would work that way)

I guess if you don't mind having a newgen German called Adolf Hitler, then I guess there's no problems

Heh, Vladimir Putin made it to the list :)

But why would you ban a Thomas Hamilton? That's a rather common name...

It's also the name of the mass-murderer of 17 children and teachers in Dunblane...

Yes (I had no idea of that until I googled the name though; same goes for a good few people on that list), but there are easily hundreds of Thomases Hamiltons living around the globe... :)

Oh well, easy enough to edit at your own discretion I suppose.

The reasoning behind this is obvious..

But as always, SI have given everyone the choice to edit this how they see fit, which suits everyone.

Didn't he play for Villa in the mid 90s?

Think we should include 'Miles Jacobsen' in it, for causing misery to millions (of wives and girlfriends) each year :p

I always name myself as Adolf Hilter when I take the opposition team to cheat a bit! :D

Just found this file and have now been asked why I am laughing out load in the office. It was Willy Head if anyones is wondering what set me off!

I've just cut the file out and saved it somewhere I can recall it if theres an issue with my game without it.

A nice list for educational purposes. I'm having fun googling many of the names as I have no idea who they are. Quite amusing to see nine (9!) entries with different spelling variations of Jimmy Saville.
