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

OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2021 / data / database / db / 2100

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.

As explained in the main post, if you install this file after starting a new game, club name changes will not work. There is a workaround to this in the first post.


Ok, that is all fine. But I started the game after the download.

Then you haven't installed the files correctly. Make sure the dbc/permanent folder and the editor data folder (and the others too, naturally) are installed as per the screenshots in the main post, paying particular attention to the contents and to the path itself.

If you think they're right, please take screenshots of these 2 folders so that I can see what may be the matter.

Hello,

I am new here fyi, so a complete newb to this. When I download the file I only download 2 docs - FM 21 fix and FM Club Names fix by FM Scout.

But following the instructions I should have - new dbc, edt and lnc folders from the downloaded pack to replace the old ones?

Any help would be appreciated?

Thank you

If you want help with files from another site, best ask in there πŸ˜•


If you want to use the ones from this site, which are more thorough, comprehensive and frankly correct, then follow the instructions in the main post to install the files in the correct manner. You should first delete the dbc, edt and lnc folders, then put the ones from this download, essentially.

Ahhh! Well you've just helped me figure out what I was doing wrong! I was looking at the wrong folder. Yours is the one I want to use as it looks the most comprehensive!

Told you I was new to this!

Thanks once again for your help.

There are translations for a small number of competitions and awards, but it'll be in English I imagine, I've never played it in German. Why not give it a go and see if it works for you?

Did anyone else had problem to see brazilian kits with these fixes on "create a club"? It fully works on career.
What's happening? In the team selection menu, you will see the default game kit on your first click to see details. After the second click, it appears as fixed. However, when I start the game, quit, and open again, it is back to the default kits.

These are called stage names. The only way to change stage names is to do so using the pre-game editor.

@Beanybaby01, I was made aware a few days back that there are some teams in Serie A whose rivalries and/or derbies were removed in FM21 due to licensing reasons. I haven't had time yet to check which these are and release a file to sort this out. Whenever that may be, it won't be save-game compatible.


Hi Mons,

Any idea on a timeline for the italian rivalries/derbies fix?

I actually checked over the holidays and didn't find a single thing different using the editor. The teams had the same rivalries set in the FM20 database and the FM21 one. Can you give a few examples of which teams have this issue, ideally with screenshots?

I had a look in the game when I first noticed it and it seems like every club that has a rivalry with "Zebre" is affected. Weirdly it seems like it doesn't just hide rivalries with Juventus, but it removes any rivalry sharing the same row. Inter seem completely bugged out and don't show any rivalries at all.
