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

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.

Hello I have a small question

With this pack we have lnc files and fmf files

 

If I modify some club names directly in the lnc file,does it modify at the same time with the same changes the fmf file “club name changes” ?

In other words, are we 100% sure that the changes that I make in the lnc file will be taken into account in the game? Indeed I changed several French club names in the lnc file and I don't want the fmf file to mess that up

 

Thanks

Changes in the fmf file will take precedence over any changes to the same field using the lnc file, if the fmf file was in place when the save game was started.

 

So if you used an fmf file to change Manchester United's name to Manchester Reds, editing the lnc file for that entry will nonetheless see the club name displayed as Manchester Reds.

and if two fmf files have modified the same item, how does the game “choose” what to display ? does the most recent file “win” ?

You can change different fields of the same item in different files.

 

e.g. You can make Messi 6 foot in one editor data file, and change his nationality to Maltese in another one, and both changes will appear if you start a save with both files loaded.

 

But if you make him 6 foot in one file, and 6 foot 5 inches in another one, the game will choose the changes in the file which is first in alphabetical order, since it's the same field which is being edited.

 

e.g. 6'5_foot_Messi will be chosen over Messi_6_foot.fmf as it's first in alphabetical order. I'm not entirely sure of this, it might be the last one, but that's how it works, anyway.

Download UWPDumper: https://github.com/Wunkolo/UWPDumper

 

With developer mode on - Win + R, enter `ms-settings:developers`, Ok

 

Open the FM2021, till the load screen

 

Open the UWPDumper, it will scan the open apps, just type the fm.exe ID, after that, it will extratc the files to a DUMP folder. (If in doubt, see the linked video.)

 

Now you can copy the content of this folder to a new one, C:\FM2021 for example ( You can name it or place it in anyway/anywhere you want)

 

In this folder, follow the regular instructions from this post, deleting and replacing the files.

 

Close and uninstall the FM2021 (you have to uninstall, otherwise this wont work)

 

Inside the new folder (the one you create after copy the DUMP folder) , type, on the adress bar: "powershell", then enter.

 

Just type the comand:  Add-AppxPackage -path .\appxmanifest.xml -register 

 

The game will be installed with the new modified files

EDIT: it works!! I just restart the xbox app and the game is still there with fixed name. Thank you well done!

I believe that is related to an external file. If memory serves, Timo's French league file expanded one of the French knockout competitions which necessitated the adding of a couple of rounds and the editing of a couple of existing stage names, which he did in French, and which meant that the existing stage name in different competitions is displayed in French. I don't believe there's a way this can be rectified, or at least not as far as I'm aware.

Then I've got my files mixed up, but it's definitely not due to the files in this download, simply because I don't edit stage names. Perhaps it's another file with French competition edits then. I came across it a long time ago and can't remember exactly which file it was now, sorry.
