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

STEP 1.

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

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.

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.


thank you for reply,
I can't wait to see final version for full version release.

I'm a little confused @mons, does the steps to change club/competition names in the first post work or not? The instructions have it all crossed out, so I am unsure. Thanks for the work!

The bits which aren't struck through work and need to be followed, while steps 4 and 5 don't work yet.

Just follow steps 1-3 and you'll be fine. There are some files in this fix which can't be activated till the full game and the editor are released on the 24th, but there's a hell of a lot which works already 😉

Thanks for the quick response 🙂
I was thinking because of the fixed Nationalteams. I guess all players need to play with the fix or is there something I don't understand?

Yes, everybody should have the fix installed. But why wouldn't you? 🙂

Zebra stadium will be fixed when the full game comes out. Juve U23 should be fixed in the download already.

It wasn't last year, it was a fair few years back actually. If somebody is willing to create one and give me permission to include it in my download, then I would be more than happy to do so. I just don't have the time to do it myself though, regrettably.

Is there a fix for the Juventus backroom staff as well or is that something separate?

It's part of this download and there's a screenshot in the main post with the correct staff. That particular fix needs to be in place before starting a new game, though.

Zebre is changed to Juventus and Champions league as well.
I am planning to start a new save when full game is released and I will check it.

Hi all, did anyone else experiencing that this fix is messing up the Hall Of Fame table? I played 2 seasons and each seasons trophy wins have been separated into to different lines. It should be under the same summary line, as I am playing with only one save game. See attachment.

Not heard of this issue, but it may well be a bug in the game. Is there any particular reason why you think it's this file which is causing it? Because I can't think how this file could affect it...

Thanks for your prompt reply. I reported it as a bug to SI Games, it might be an issue with the BETA version. Anyhow I have experienced similar issues with previous versions of FM (as FM20) and when you report it to SI Games their first question is always what add-ons you have added when starting save game and additional data files you are running. I'll keep you posted on their reply (if it is a known BETA bug or not).

Hi all,

I hope the Ajax staff will be added to the game. Would it be possible to use FM2020 profiles (attributes)? A lot of staff members still work at Ajax and in the same staff roles.

Staff who left compared to FM2020:
Richard Knopper (assistent manager, ADO Den Haag), Carlo L'Ami (retired), Tonny Bruins Slot (passed away), Pim van Dord (retired)

New compared to FM2020
Anton Scheutjens (Almere City) new goalkeepers coach 1st team
Bogarde (promoted), Reiziger and Poulsen are assistent coaches for the 1st team
Witschge trainer 1st team
Dave Vos assistent manager 2nd team
Perry Augustine performance coach 1st team

Contracts all up 1 year (2020>2021) and specifically:
Heitinga 2023
van der Gaag 2023
Overmars 2024
vd Sar 2023
Reiziger 2023
Bogarde 2023
Veldmate 2024
Witschge 2022
ten Hag 2022
Ouaali 2022

I don't know if there are more changes, but this is what I could find. I don't know about the U19 team, apart from Heitinga being the head coach and Peereboom being the assistent manager.

Can someone help me out?
