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

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.

Hi, quick question; will it cause any issues if I just copy one of the editor files? I only want the Ajax staff fix and not bothered about the others, so if I just copy the Ajax staff file into the editor data file, will that work ok and not cause me any issues? Thanks

The reason all the files are made separately is to cater for people like you who, for whatever reason, don't want to use them all. Go right ahead; you should have no problems at all 👍

So with the latest patch, Juve specifically has reverted to Zebre, even after reapplying the fix. They seem to be the only club affected. I started this save back in beta, so it wasn't affected by the editor files since they obviously weren't out yet, but the workaround version of the fix from early in the release cycle fixed the name. Am I doing something wrong or going crazy?

I didn't know! I did wonder who this shadowrun came from and where you'd gone to tbh! If you'd told me an hour ago, it'd have been corrected in the latest release. As it is, it'll have to wait till the next one...

Since you've specified it, did I spell it wrong somewhere perchance?


Sorry for the delayed response, I meant change the name to shadowrun. Great work!

I have a problem. When I go to (...)\Steam\SteamApps\common\ there is no Football Manager 2021 folder. Only "Steamworks Shared".

Do you know what can be the reason?

Cheers!

What system do you have? Mac, PC, other? And where have you got the game from? Is it from Steam or elsewhere?

The game must be installed somewhere, so it's just a question of finding it. Can I have a screenshot of your Steam\SteamApps\common folder please?

"The game must be installed somewhere" - this sentence reminded me, that I've changed the destination folder of the instalation. xD

Juventus u23 play the Italian Cup with this file

Juventus u23 play the Italian Cup with this file

This is a very bizarre knock-on which was discovered a few days ago. This issue is being investigated and I suspect it is a bug within the game itself since this download does not in any way edit any competition rules or eligibility at all.

A workaround we have discovered is to remove the entry in the Juventus fixes editor file changing the Zebre U23 club name to Juventus U23 before starting a new game. Just changing it won't work, it requires the entry to be removed outright.

Once the save game is started, you are then to use the workaround in the first post to change the Zebre U23 name to Juventus U23 in the lnc file.

Essentially, it is the fact that the name is Juventus U23 instead of Zebre U23 at game start that triggers the U23 team to be added into the Coppa Italia.

As it is such an obscure bug, and the nature of the solution is far from straight-forward, I decided to avoid mentioning it to avoid confusing users.

Will do, thanks! I guess I'm just confused as to why it would revert despite working fine and the files not actually changing since they've been replaced with each update. Seems strange.

There was a small change between the beta version and the full version which might explain this, actually...

a) Best to ask in the metallic logo forum rather than here, no? 😉
b) They're probably not the same at all but split versions of the same file. When you extract the first one, all the others would probably be extracted as well. Bit difficult to tell without seeing screenshots, which I recommend that you do when you post in the metallic logo forum
c) If you want to tag somebody, you need to have them in square brackets, as outlined right above the comment box. So it'd be @ [ mons ] without the spaces rather than @mons 😉

There seems to be a bit of overlap between the files of the same nature in this download and that one. The competition colour changes appears to be more comprehensive in his download, but on the other hand I suspect (without having checked tbph) that the Brazilian kit colour changes in my file are more comprehensive. I think you can pick and choose tbh, which is precisely why I have split files rather than everything in a single file 👍

I don't mind helping out, but in the time that it took me to read this and respond, you could have started a dozen test save games with however many combination of files you'd have liked, and gotten the answers to both questions yourself. Whatever happened to trying things out for oneself, I wonder?

With regards to your first question, that may be the best way forward but before I try it out, I really can't tell. As for the second question, I don't think so, no.

I believe there's a bug with the editor where edited entries for titlebar colours in red appear as blue and vice-versa. I don't believe I have edited the Portuguese national team colours in any of my files so it may be the case in some other file at your end.
