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

OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2021\data\database\db\2130
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

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

Epic Games Installation

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.

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.

File is now out and available for download. I will probably be editing the OP and the installation instructions a bit in the coming minutes/hours, so please bear with me till then.

Enjoy FM21. Remember the game is a beta, and this file is also a beta. There are restrictions to what I can do until I can get my hands on the editor. As a result, some things are not fully compatible. Rest assured, as soon as I can, I'll have all the other files available for download.

A massive thanks to all those who have contributed over the fast weeks and months. This is obviously an initial version and if anybody spots anything amiss, please let me know. I can't oversee every single competition in the world and I can't fix mistakes unless I know about them 😉


As an aside, dsfgasss: kudos on behaving like a prize overly-entitled twat 👍 There's always one.

Sorry, although the instruction are probably quite simple, I don´t get in which folders I have to paste the files of the download file. In all three (2100,2101 and 2110) or just in the 2101? :/

Kind regards.

At the moment, the current installation paths are sufficient. No idea what the 2110 means, but I don't believe it's being used at the moment. If and when new builds are released, come back to download the latest version of this file 😉

That's one of the fixes for which I need the editor unfortunately. Nothing that can be done until the day of release on that, I'm afraid.

Delete the existing dbc, edt and lnc folders in the first two folders, i.e. 2100 and 2101. Put the ones from these download in the same location. That's it 🙂

I think the Zebre/Juventus issue can be fixed using the usual workaround though can't it?

It's just the Brazilian team names that can't. That's what's happened on mine anyway.

I thought you made a Ajax staff fix a few years ago in a file you had. The ajax staff is missing again because of licensing problems. Any idea if you could make such a fix again.

Oh dear, that's a shame. That was a fair few years ago and I'd need to check what staff members were added then, which need to be edited and which to be added.

If anybody with a better knowledge of Dutch football is willing to provide this info and/or create a file to be added when the full game comes out, then I'd willingly add it to this download 👍

Without the editor access at the moment, exactly what are we missing, that you usually provide?

Thanks again, superb work.

Club name changes are (partially) working, and there needs to be a new file this year, adding Ajax non-playing staff, all of which will be missing in the full release due to licensing reasons.

I have a pretty good idea about ajax but never set that up to FM guidelines. Cant you take last years staff and put that in. Pretty much nothing changed except for some changes in staff.

It's not as easy as that, I'm afraid. One would need to copy them all and then recreate them by inputting them manually. I don't think I have the time to do that tbh, so if anybody's willing to do it, be my guest. If they are created with the FM20 editor, I think they should still work on FM21 once it's released.
