If you're playing FM Touch, use this file.

This file will need to be re-applied if/when official patches/updates are released to ensure full compatibility. This is due to the fact that some files which are removed when installing this file are automatically re-installed by Steam when official patches come out.

Some of these changes, ESPECIALLY THE CLUB NAMES, do [u]NOT apply in existing save-games[/u]. There's a workaround for that in the first post.


The sortitoutsi real names fix changes the instances of fake names in Football Manager 2021 to the proper, real life names for awards, cities, stadiums and competitions, in cases where the actual name is not licensed, such as Champions League, Europa League and Premier League displaying instead of EURO Cup, EURO Vase and Premier Division respectively. It will also fix the fact that the German and Japanese National teams don't call up real players and that the Bayern Munich and Borussia Mönchengladbach managers have fake names. These are all fully save-game compatible.

There is also a club name changes file, which changes the names of clubs in a way which ensures that any nicknames entered in the default database are retained. This file includes the proper names for Brazilian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian (including Juventus) and French clubs to circumvent licensing restrictions. It also adds real-life media and journalists, encompassing most major footballing nations and continents. Brazilian clubs' text colours are also changed through an editor data file. Finally, it includes a small file which corrects the 3-Letter competition names to correspond with any changes made in the lnc files. For all the files in this paragraph to work, however, you will need to start a new game.


Follow the below instructions to install this version of this file

STEP 1.
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2021\data\database\db\2100
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2021\data\database\db\2101
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2021\data\database\db\2111
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

Notes:
\Program Files (x86)\
could be
\Program Files\
depending on your set up.

Epic Games Installation
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\FootballManager2021\data\database\db\2100
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\FootballManager2021\data\database\db\2101
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\FootballManager2021\data\database\db\2111
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

Notes:
\Program Files (x86)\
could be
\Program Files\
depending on your set up.


Mac

OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2021 / data / database / db / 2100 
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2021 / data / database / db / 2101 
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2021 / data / database / db / 2111 
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

You can find these folders by clicking, in the Finder, the Go menu in the menu bar, then choose Go to Folder and type the folder path name (obviously inserting your username), then click Go.

You can get to the Library folder by simply selecting Go from the top bar and holding "alt" key - The Library folder suddenly appears on the drop down

For Mac Lion users, the Library folder will be hidden. Use this link to find out how to show it.

For those struggling to find the Steam and Steam Apps folder etc using Mac with the new OS High Sierra, this link below shows how you can unhide your Library folder which will then let you find the other folders.

Slightly more detail in this post



STEP 2:
COPY the dbc, edt and lnc folders from the downloaded pack

STEP 3:
PASTE them into each of your respective folders mentioned in step 1.

These are what the respective folder structures should look like in the 2111 folder:

dbc: https://i.imgur.com/kKqRRen.png
dbc/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/NKXR4P0.png
edt/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/gKpY0Vp.png
lnc: https://i.imgur.com/InU648O.png

STEP 4:
COPY the 9 files located in the EDITOR DATA FILES folder in the downloaded pack

STEP 5
PASTE to
\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\editor data

\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2021\\GAMEPASS\editor data



Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive
By default this folder is hidden, so to access you need to do as follows:

Open Finder
Click ‘Go’ from the menubar
Press and hold down the ‘Option’ (Alt) key
This will bring up the ‘Library’, click to enter then go to ‘Application Support’ -> ‘Sports Interactive’ -> ‘Football Manager 2021’


This should be what your editor data folder looks like now. There may initially be a config.xml file in this folder and it can be safely overwritten; it is generated by FM every time the game starts.

To make sure the files have been applied correctly, go to the Champions Cup and EURO Vase in your saved game, and they should be renamed to Champions League and Europa League respectively. If you are in the middle of a save-game, Japanese national teams will be populated in the next instance that players are called up, and not immediately. Do keep in mind that this file does not add Japan-based players, who are not in the official database and will need a third-party add-on to be created and added.

Club names are only changed if you apply the editor data files before starting a new game. For a workaround if you've already started a new save-game, then please read the opening post of this thread.

It seems that the German and Japanese national teams are not active.

It seems you haven't read the bottom line of the main post OR you haven't installed this correctly.




Guys, first good night and thanks for the correction. However, the colors of some teams in Brazil have not been changed. Cruzeiro, for example, has colors like Blue and White, and here it remains red. I did exactly the same as the tutorial. Someone with the same problem?

Fixing it as I speak. You'll need to start a new game for these fixes though.

I did it again from 0, deleting the folders and copying and pasting exactly like the tutorial and it didn't work (the names are correct, but the colors are not: /). I'll reinstall the game and clear the file cache and see if I can.

I'm working on a fix for this, nothing wrong with what you're doing. Some clubs are fine, others aren't in the present version of the file.

First time user here, managed to get the fixes working first time so thank you for the effort in doing this so quickly after release!

Got a question though, when the inevitable fixes/updates for FM start rolling out, do we need to wait for an update here before we can carry on with a save?

Also is it just official patches or any little update to FM?

FM official updates will not interfere with your current save. However, if you start a new save after a new FM patch then you will have to apply this fix again to the new db folders that will be created with the new patch (ex: winter transfers patch)

Correct.
What you can do every time you start a new save is to check if this fix has been updated and re-do the process again.

How do you know if the 8 EDITOR DATA FILES are working correctly? When starting a new game I did not see an option to select them as the game loads.

In addition to what @kingjericho says, when a new official patch is released you should update your files from this fix by downloading it and applying it again.

If they're in place, you should need to click the advanced setup button when you start a new career. To check what files are being loaded, click the database button in the top right corner:

Using the Editor Data, will that prevent us from getting on the leaderboards (so activating the Editor Data files from this file)?
