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

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.

Could be I didn't have the club name changes effected in that save. It was more for the person's name rather than the club name.

Yes, if this patch isn't applied before starting a new game.

Brazilian kits are only partly fixed. They will be 100% fixed once the full game is released and I get the editor, hopefully!



The download is not working here.

That's not clear at all.

Can you not download it? Can you not extract it? Does it not work in-game when you install it? More info pls, ideally with screenshots 🙂

It's a known issue and can't be fixed until we get the editor data files when the game is released. Can't be fixed till then and has been mentioned several times already.

Excellent work @Mons, as always! Sorry if I haven't catch this right from the previous comments, but in my beta save, I see the right names for Brazilian teams, but -unfurtunately- still the wrong colours for them. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

We'll have to wait till the full game is released so that the editor is out and I can then validate the files which edit this.

In-game, Fotbal Club FCSB is their long name and FCSB is their short name. Are you saying they should be changed? If yes, to what?

If this file is applied before starting a new game, you get to see the correct names, as per one of the screenshots in the first post. No need for the editor for that fix.

Hello mons, thank you for this year's update that came instantly but most importantly thank you for not give up on us after all these who dont read the comment so they ask the same thing again and again and again....
Like every year SI they got confused by our glorious greek league system (seriously its worst even some of the cult latin american competitions of the 80s). This year they divided the first amateur league of every region from the second and the third etc. so every change we made last year needs remake. Because of my zero editor data knowledge i can make you a txt. file where i correspond the old name with a new (ex. Protathlima EPS Larisas --> A1 Larisas and Greek Amateur Division - Larisa --> EPS Larisas). Because i already use your magnificent pack my changes will be on the existing file if you are okay with this. Actually tell me if you are into this generally because i dont know if you have time this year and you might dont really care about a sad balkan part of this planet. Also i changed my name from dimteo to teo_dim_.

My bad, it works on a new game now without me downloading it again or anything, I had the initial version that you released minutes after the Beta came out, and started a game then, then you released a second version almost instantly, that must have fixed everything in my saved game except the player names!

Hey, sorry if this has been already answered on one of the previous pages. Is Juventus' 3rd kit not showing up one of those "can't resolve until full release" issues? Also Bayern coach name's wrong too. I'm seeing lots of small discrepancies mentioned in the comments, I'm guessing it's a bit of a waiting game until it's all addressed.

After you have the editor and are able to do all the fixes are those gonna apply to my game or I'll have to start a new save? Sorry for noob questions, thank you for doing this.

All Juventus kit issues need the full game and the editor to be released in order to be fixed. This change will not be save-game compatible.

Hansi Flick's name looks fine in my game - make sure the screenshots of the folders in the first post apply in your PC for both the 2100 and 2101 folders.
