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

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 / 2140 
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.

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?


Here is a screenshot of a player profile. I also have Steaua on the club profile. Language Dutch; 0.3 version

I suspect it's because you're playing in Dutch. Can you change language to English and see if it still appears the same?

Of course it is. There are screenshots in the first post of in-game fixes which should serve as proof that this download works.

There is a very small percentage of stuff which can't be fixed until the full game and the editor are released on the 24th, but if nothing's working for you, then I'm afraid it's because you haven't installed it properly.

If you want to tell us what, exactly, isn't working for you and provide us with screenshots of the locations you've installed it in, then perhaps we can assist you in getting this fix to work.

Very minor stuff, mostly things pointed out to be in this thread which needed changing.

I don't really have the time to provide an itemised changelist every time I announce a new release, plus I usually give a brief overview when I release it anyway 😉

You can certainly live without it, but it's a 1MB download which takes 5 seconds to download and install, so you might as well get it 👍

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.


Fixed! I copy-pasted the folders again but I think the issue was I had to start a new game. I re-read the instructions a few times and finally noticed that line in there! Thanks.

Thank you so much for this! I just noted that the fix impacts the name of the clubs but not the stadiums. I.e. the Juventus stadium is still "zebre stadium". Do you know how can I fix it?

Thank you

There's a fix for that here, which can be used alongside this download without any issues.

I'm not adding it to this download due to the fact that it will be redundant when the full version of this download is released but will still remain on users' systems until manually deleted, which may cause conflicts further down the line.

No, also in English the team is also called Steaua for me. When I open the language files FCSB is not present when I search for it with CTRL+F. Maybe add it so it will overwrite for sure?

Juventus issues too; but here the B Team is called 'Juventus F.C. U23', while when I open a player the team is called 'Zebre U23', while Juventus itself does work (some players have both Zebre U23 and Juventus on their profile).

Deleted and added all folders from the zip again to both folders 2100 and 2101, still no effect. Will try a new savegame tomorrow again

Hey guys, when you release the full update once the game is released - just wondering if it's possible to have the changes to licensed names (eg Germany or France) could be in its own file similar to how Germany was in your fm20 name fix?

There is no entry in this file for FSCB because it's already fine in the game as is. I can't understand why it's displaying as Steaua for you 😕 Are you using another version of this download perchance?

Are you sure you're using v0.3 of this file? I think the Zebre U23 short club name wasn't fixed by v0.2.

These are the files which will be included in the editor data files section of this download once the full game is released.

At this stage, too much work has gone into the Club Name Changes file to move any of it into a separate file.

Why not both? Download it now, and use it in your beta save then download v1.0 when it's released on the 24th. It's a 1 MB file which takes 20 seconds to download and install, it's not like it'll take you loads of time to do so.

That file cannot be released until the game is released on the 24th and I get my hands on the editor to verify the files. As can be seen from my post just before yours, the files are ready to go, but they can't work until then.

I will be waiting as apparently there will be data updates for the official release, players like Alphonso Davies for example are in need of an upgrade.

I very much doubt there will be too many data updates at this late stage, maybe only if a high-profile free transfer or manager movement happens. Irrespective of that, this download is completely independent of all that and having it place now in no way stops you or forbids you from getting any such updates in the future since person attributes and this fix use completely different files,

Ah so sorry for taking your time.

I switched the language from the game not the data; so FCSB works in EN. However, Juventus U23 is still Zebre U23, also in a new savegame.

Btw; Will the missing Ajax staff (Bogarde, Reiziger, Heitinga and so on) be added too?

Juventus U23 is fixed for me 😕

As for the missing Ajax staff, if the community can provide these then they will certainly be added to the file. I'm afraid I just don't have the time to do them myself.

The Scottish Leagues are no longer sponsored by Ladbrokes. For the current season they currently have no sponsorship. Also pretty that the Scottish Cup from this season is also no longer sponsored by William Hill.

Right on both counts. The respective entries will be fixed for the next release of this file, which fixes will be save-game compatible 👍
