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

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

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

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.

Ah OK, I see. Whenever you add any editor data file, not just ones from this download, that's the way that the game manages which leagues are to be loaded. It's been like this for a considerable while now, actually.

So does the patch break the already existing saves. I am in my 3rd season with Deportivo, do I have to reapply the real-name fix for my save? 

I don't intend to start a new save for a while

The patch certainly doesn't break existing saves. I recommend downloading and applying the real name fix anyway, just in case, but there shouldn't be any adverse impact on existing save games. To be safe, I'd check the dbc/permanent, edt/permanent and lnc folders in the 2111 path to see if they look exactly like the ones in the main post.

Yes, the Juventus name and its stadium & youth stadium are still correct in my save, after re-applying the Real Names fix after the 21.3 update. I did start my current save after beta stage, though. That might be a factor in it, who knows?

 

Or do you mean that even when starting a whole new career right now, you won't get the Juventus fix to work?

Hi @mons 

 

In the Netherlands, the second division is not called ‘Jupiler League' anymore. So I've updated the awards section, replacing ‘Jupiler League’ by ‘KKD’, abbreviated from ‘Keuken Kampioen Divisie’. You could also choose to use ‘Eerste Divisie’, which is a more general term. And 37013149 is now called ‘Talent’ instead of ‘Jong speler’

Hi!

 

Just a small suggestion for adjustment of the stadium name of Birmingham City FC: “Trillion Trophy Stadium” → “St Andrew's Trillion Trophy Stadium”.

So, the traditional St Andrew's part is still used in the name IRL, but in the Real Name Fix File it's currently named only by the sponsor's name as "Trillion Trophy Stadium".

(Proof: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/44481033)

 

Thanks!

Thanks for all these and for checking after me @RoCCo_42 .

 

FYI,

#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 70061806 "Kırıkkale Büyük Anadoluspor" ""

is too long for a short name and exceeds the character limit so the editor won't let me input it all, so I've renamed it to Kırıkkale Büyük Anadolu

 

Also, would I be right in assuming that the UID in

should be 452949?

Hey Mons, great job! Unfortunately, it's not working for me, which I find it very strange. I tried multiple times even reinstalling the game, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Any help that you can give me would be much appreciated! I'll leave you in advance the screenshots of the folders, if you want to check em out. 

Thanks a lot fot the great work!
