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.

Depends which screen you're on. Clubs have a long name displayed on their team overview, and a short name displayed in the league table and players' history .

Not necessarily because there are character limitations to it and some long names may not fit.

You can try editing the entries yourself if you're so inclined.

Erm, that's the 7-zip program structure. When you downloaded this file, you extracted it somewhere - that's where you should be looking for it. No idea where it is, it's your computer 😕

That fix will only take effect if applied before starting a new game. If you've started a new game and you get Zebra, you haven't installed the editor data part of the download correctly.

If you've applied this download in the middle of a save game, then there's a workaround in the first post of this thread.

Hi mons, other media fixes I found:

- Vi.nl should be capitalized to VI.nl > This stands for 'Voetbal International' so it can be attached to that magazine/removed and only keep Voetbal International (biggest football magazine in the Netherlands, containing both Dutch as international football > meaning Eredivisie, KKD and CL and EL should be added to what they write about)
- Sport1 has been 'Ziggo Sport' for years, so that should be updated
- 'EredivisieLive' has been taken over by 'FOX Sports' for over 5 years now. There are other FOX Sports entries in the editor data file, in which FOX should always be capitalized > they do both website and broadcast on tv > in the Netherlands they broadcast Eredivisie, KKD and Europa League (Bundesliga as well, but in this case not interesting I guess).
- Nrc.next is duplicated
- 'Veronica' should be added, which consists of a national TV show in the Netherlands (famous for laughing about Manolev) and also broadcast Champions League in the Netherlands (together with Ziggo Sport)
- L'Équipe is three times in the DB, delete two I guess (2 times and 1 called magazine, only keep 'L'Équipe'😉

I had this, to correct that save you have to do the work around in the first post. It will park if you start a new save though.

For people who are waiting for a Youssoufa Moukoko fix:
-> Go in-game to "FM" on the top right of your screen
-> "Downloads"
-> "Steam" tab
-> "Download add-ons directly from steam"
-> Search for "Moukoko"

You will find several versions of him in there and press "Subscribe" on the one you choose, that's it.

I personally took the one with most subscribers... the sheep that I am.
You will have to start a new game for him to appear.
He will automitically be added to the database once you have clicked on "Subscribe" on that file.

Competition names for England Step 3 (Level 7) "BetVictor" is incorrect, should be "The Pitching In".

Thanks, will be fixed for the next version.




How can i edit the club names on mac?

Either by using the pre-game editor and changing the editor data file, or by using the equivalent of Notepad for Mac when you use the workaround in the first post.




You should see on the online database to have the right profile.
For example, Ronald De Boer has AFC Ajax as Liked Club, Louis Van Gaal as Liked People, and Feyenoord as Disliked club.

That's something which is being done in the background, but it's not really a high priority at the moment tbh.
