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.

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

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.

Has anybody been able to fix the Brazilian team colors?

It's one of the fixes which will have to wait until the editor is out, I'm afraid.



Hey Mons,

Thanks for the great work.
As a FYI; there seems to be an additional league in Spain (extra division of the Segunda B)

I appended your file with the following after rule 7162
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 2000032789 "Segunda División B Grupo V" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 2000032789 "2ªB Grupo V" ""

Naturally, review it as you wish, but it works for me ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks, submitted already and will be added in the next release of this file ๐Ÿ™‚



Thanks again @shadowrun - keep them coming!



Hello, thanks for this file, its been a life saver ๐Ÿ™‚ Just one question, I have Juve, and the file fixed everything as advertised, except one thing I noticed so far. The Juve U23 is still called Zebre/Zebrette U23 it seems.

Could be and I'll have to check this when I get home. May need a new version of this file to be sorted, which should be save-game compatible at least ๐Ÿ™‚



why is Juventus called Zebra in my FM21 game?

It shouldn't be if you've installed this file correctly. Can you try downloading this file again and install it following the instructions? If it doesn't work, can I have screenshots of both the lnc mentioned in the first post?

Whenever I start a new game I see that Brazilian kits are working nicely. However, if I close the game, kits will be messed up when I reload.

Screenshots of your dbc/permanent folder please, and ideally also of the files before and after the issue ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi there, can I suggest a few changes for Portugal?

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 60 "Liga NOS" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 60 "Primeira Liga" "" (common short name)
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 61 "Liga Portugal 2 SABSEG" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 61 "Segunda Liga" "" (common short name)
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 55006606 "Allianz Cup" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 55006606 "Taça da Liga" "" (lit. League Cup)

Is the 2100/dbc/permanent folder similar to the first screenshot?

Tbh, this could well be an issue related to one of the editor data files which won't work until I can verify them with the FM21 editor once it's released.

I do wish people would bother skimming through the installation instructions or the opening post.

This is one of the things which can't be fixed until I get my hands on the editor once the full game is out.

yes the juve fix is working fine

what is interesting is when you look at the league table which is listed alphabetically Juve shows last (as if the game still thinks juve is zebra ๐Ÿค”)

They don't work yet as they need to be verified. The game just starts without them.

A side effect of the fix being done through the lnc file rather than the editor data files.

Feedback so far taken on board and changes added to the files whenever possible. Changes are extremely minor, so proceed accordingly.

Yep, save-game compatible.

Nothing I can do about the Juventus stadiums names issues till the editor's out...

I didn't know! I did wonder who this shadowrun came from and where you'd gone to tbh! If you'd told me an hour ago, it'd have been corrected in the latest release. As it is, it'll have to wait till the next one...

Since you've specified it, did I spell it wrong somewhere perchance?

Keep up the excellent work guys.

We should use the 2 wks to test the game and get ready for the updates that make the game playable.

This is an essential file. Keep it up chaps

Thanks. The files are ready - I just need the editor to validate them, and hopefully that should be it. I should be able to release v1.0 of the file a few minutes after I get my hands on the editor, unless something unforeseeable comes up.

Hi,

I was wondering if sortitoutsi will make a file that adds the missing Ajax Amsterdam staff to the game.
Apparently most of them are missing because of licence issues.

And also, it seems that the highly anticipated wonderkid Youssoufa Moukoko won't be added yet to the game because he's only 15 of age when the game starts in august (German competition). Strangely at Dortmund there's another 15 year old who is included to the game so I don't understand where they draw the line.
Moukoko will turn 16 in real life next week I believe, and it would be a pity not to have him in it when the full game is released.
Is there a possibility that you guys can include him? If I remember right it's been done before for Martin Odegaard when he was 15 years old.

The Ajax staff issue was raised yesterday. I don't have the time to create them all, I'm afraid, but if somebody does, then I'd be happy to include it.

Players are included in FM if they're 16 on or before 31 August of the year of release of the game; Moukoko missed that cut-off. The Dortmund player you mention is 16 before then.

This is not a licensing issue and this file has never been intended to add these kind of players; I'm sure there will be plenty of files adding him and other similar players. As for Odegaard, his father gave express permission for him to be added to FM before he was 16, iirc he was an FM player so was only too happy to ๐Ÿ™‚
