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.

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.

weird, i dont have any other file with these changes.

Hi there mons, I started playing in Portugal yesterday and saw that they added the Third Division that begins in the 2021-22 season. Unfortunately they added it with a generic name, so I have made the lines for you to include in "Competitions and other Fixes.lnc" with the current previsional name.

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


So would it be possible to use the version of the dbc, edt and lnc folders that I know worked, while also using the editor data files from the updated version?

Before I do a new save I want to do this to get the correct Brazil team names
I am not that good with files etc. If it goes wrong is it easy to put right . for eg would I just need to delete the game and reinstall it?

There's no need to go as far as reinstalling the game, you can always verify the integrity of the game files through Steam if you've messed it up particularly spectacularly.

Really, all you need to do is make sure that the folders which have screenshots in the main post look exactly on your own PC. If you're not sure, just drop me a PM 😉

I'll download this soon, ready for FMT21. Only concern I have is: I've never played the Touch version before so hopefully I can figure it out. I've done this before on the full game.

Maybe I'm an idiot (probably, true) but what do I do with the Touch version? Do I download the file or just edit the exciting folders with notepad? @mons

The editor data files don't work with FMT. So if you want to change club names, you'll have to do the workaround in the first post.

Hi all,

The /dat folder in the installation guide is hidden, or changed to something else. I made a post with a screen shot a few days back here: https://sortitoutsi.net/content/57069/updating-logosname-fixes-for-fm21-on-a-mac-running-big-sur

Thanks!

I'm sorry but as I don't have that OS, I'm hamstrung in the help I can offer you.

Steps 1-3 go into the installation folder. If you can't find this, use Steam to help you. Check FM21's properties:

https://i.imgur.com/R9W8X7h.png

Then navigate to the local files tab and click the browse local files button.

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

It'll take you to the FM21 installation folder where you should be able to navigate to the data\database\db path according to the instructions in the main past.

For steps 4-5, the screenshot you posted seems to indicate that the files in the editor data folder within this download should go in there. Remember - the files should be directly in the editor data folder and not in sub-folders.

Click the button beneath the download text 😕

Certainly falls within the purview of this file so it'll be added in the next update if I can find out which of the current Argentina competitions in the editor it actually is right now 👍

Did you apply the file in the middle of a save game or before starting a career?

If this download is applied after starting a save game, then club name changes won't take effect, as clearly outlined in the main post. There's a workaround in the first post on how to get them to work in that case.

There's a bug in the editor that any changes to entries in red are converted into blue, for some reason.

Seems like there may be a change to the Portuguese national kits in one of my files, or in another file you may be using. I'll try and see which one could contain it 👍

Some competition name changes, some club name changes and other similar very minor changes. You should really carry on with the existing save 👍
