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.

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

OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2021 / data / database / db / 2130 
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 2130 folder:

dbc: https://i.imgur.com/9MQgkE5.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 10 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.

Ah d'accord, le téléchargement que tu as fait, c'est pour les changements de noms. Pour les logos, il faut télécharger le "metallic logos".

Ok mais pour la Champions League j'ai toujours la coupe des champions.

If you are using an editor data file which already changes a name, then you won't be able to changed that name through an lnc file. Otherwise you should be fine 👍

I think you've answered your own question there 😉


Well, I'm no expert in these things, that's why I asked. I was actually thinking that perhaps there was an issue with my game.

Then what you have to do is to use the pre-game editor on the German club names (that's what I think you want to change, no?) and make the changes in there. You'll need to start a new game for this.

If you're not sure what you're doing, make a backup of the German club name changes editor data file before you edit it so that you can revert to it if something goes wrong 😉



Thanks for those @Thewes but I'm afraid UEFA seem to disagree 😢 Would Wolfsberg suit better?

Can I see screenshots of your edt/permanent and lnc folders? Are you absolutely sure both are exactly similar to the ones in the main post? Also, if you've applied this download after having started a new game, you'll only see the national teams populated with real players when there is a call-up and not instantly.


It's like this in every one of the db folders:
https://i.imgur.com/0t4Wf3K.png
https://i.imgur.com/JDylCUj.png
https://i.imgur.com/jwL0bDP.png

I had added them when the beta came out and updated them with the new versions you've been releasing since, so unless there were no call up times for Germany or Japan until June 2021, it's not working.

Remove those backup folders from there and see if that works. Put them on the desktop or anywhere else.

Will do and I'll report back. It'd be odd if that did change things, since I've done the same for previous years and having the back-ups there didn't make any difference.

A screenshot of the folder which contains the file you've edited and uploading the file itself would allow me to see if you've done the steps correctly.

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'😉

Thank you very much for this - I've edited the file accordingly (I think!)

If you, or anybody else really, has any further changes to propose for this file, I'm happy to listen. If it's a handful of changes, a post in here is enough. If it's more wholesale changes, drop me a PM 👍

What do you mean, if? 😀

I mean if it's useful in an already started save.
Everything seemed alright in my save, which I had started with 1.1, and to be honest, I don't notice anything different now that I've upgraded to 1.25...

I was trying to be funny and play on the fact that you implied it might not be useful 😉

Joking apart, a lot of the changes from 1 version to the other will not affect anybody at all. Stuff like minor division name changes, Turkish 3rd Division club name changes and stuff like that.

It is quite unusual that something very major is spotted which needs to be changed, so most new releases of this file will only contain minor and very nerdy fixes, which nonetheless matter enough to someone to have recommended their addition.
