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 NOT apply in existing save-games. 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

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

OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2021 / data / database / db / 2140 
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 2140 folder:

dbc: https://i.imgur.com/fOxUv7W.png
dbc/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/tr2z5Jb.png
edt/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/VDaXvQ4.png
lnc: https://i.imgur.com/i6z1QCO.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.

Here are some pics from my save! i also send a pic of the editor data files i used for my save (generic changes have nothing to do with comp.colours as i checked it with and without it in a new game) Anyway i wonder if the colours are right or wrong. Anyway thank you in advance!

There is a bug in this year's editor that any amendments in the red and blue colour fields are swapped around, which means that the colours for these competitions went all over the place. Here's the amended file, which will be included in an upcoming pre-Christmas updated release of this file 👍

Yes, don't touch that. It's why it's not included in the installation instructions.

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?


Yes, it could be shortened to Wolfsberg, but there is already another club.

Hey guys,

P.S. I'm still confused about the folder 2110. I placed the new files in here (there was no 2110_fm folder) anyway.

Thanks for the heads-up; I was busy elsewhere and hadn't noticed.

I don't get the confusion about the 2110 folder. It's a dummy folder, it serves no purpose and having this fix in there makes no difference whatsoever. If it makes you feel better to have the files there, do so but it won't make a blind bit of difference 😉

Amongst the bug fixes in 21.2, the below stands out:

"Fix for B teams incorrectly appearing in the Italian Cup"

Hopefully the identified issue with Juve U23 entering the Coppa Italia after starting a new game is no longer present @wicksyFM @Cizzu

Hello guys,

The game have just been updated automatic through steam. Did I have to do anything regarding the add-ons (real name fix/logos etc.) or there is no change in my existing save?

The second line from the main post says:

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.

That should answer your query.

And, to pre-empt your follow-up question, some of the changes in this download would need you to start a save game, but none of them are so important that you must start a new career 😉 Carry on with your save 👍

I haven't said anywhere that there is or should be an extra folder, have I? 😉

The folder structure remains the same, but some of the files removed when installing this fix have resurfaced. Re-download and re-install these files and carry on with your save 👍
