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.

https://i.imgur.com/sPpeRLc.png



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.

The Kits for Palmeiras is not working as well... is it happening for everybody? I can see just the home jersey. Attached the file

I'll be releasing a fix for this later on, which will need a new career to be started. But the issue will resolve itself once you move past the 2020 in your existing save anyway.




does anyone know why Juventus dosent have legends, icons?


Nothing.. like Juventus player/staff preferences.

Licensing issues. If anybody has the time and inclination to create them and give me permission to use the file in this download, I'd willingly give him/her full credit.

No need because the only database used is the 2111 folder (and the 2101 folder if you started a save game with the beta). Apply this download in that folder too if it makes you feel better though πŸ‘



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

No idea. Possibly πŸ˜•

Getting a very weird error on Mac - I've put all of the files into the expected location (Library > Application Support > Steam > steamapps > common > FM21 > data > editor data ) and then copied and pasted in the db folders as instructed.

Firstly, I don't see any places like this screenshot a few posts above where I can choose editor files. I can't change the database at all, it's locked on one option and greyed out:

https://ibb.co/tMF0YPb

Secondly, the competition names are all correct, the German national team has players, etc so clearly something is working. But Juventus are still 'Zebre', which makes no sense.

Bit of a weird one, maybe Mac specific?

The path for editor data on mac is library > apllication support > sports interactive > fm21 > editor data

They're not included in this download. You'd have to find and download a Serie A kitpack from our kits section.

Then you either haven't installed it correctly, or you're installing it after having started a new game. Let's have screenshots of where you've installed the files to see what you've done wrong.

That's not where the editor data folder should go. Do take the time to read the installation instructions carefully.

As with the French club names, the licensing means that the German club names have to be displayed in a particular and specific way. What that file does is to revert German club names to the ones used in previous versions of FM. Up to you to decide whether you want to use it or not.

Hi,

I have downloaded the latest file and everything appears fine except the Juventus kits. Is this supposed to be fixed? I didn't see anyone having this issue.

I copied all the folders into all the db folders just to be sure and deleted any temporary folders. I also copied the editor data folder and started a new save.

I have added screenshots of what I have done. Please let me know. I have a different skin but this is not the issue as it is the same in the default one.

Yes, it's in the screenshot in the first post in fact. For this fix, you'll need to start a new game though.

Yeah sorry. I read the one of 2018...

Juventus Stadium & Training Camp are still Zebre.

Allianz Stadium seems to be attribute to another team.

There is no fix for those without starting a new game or using an in-game editor, unfortunately.
