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 
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2021 / data / database / db / 2111 
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2021 / data / database / db / 2130

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.

Is it just me or does the FM 2021 Resource Archiver do the same exact thing that FM 2020 Resource Archiver when used on FM 21 - nothing? I cannot browse or extract anything. It does not show the contents of the archives at all.

EDIT:
All of a sudden it worked, kind of. I was able to extract the contents of \simatch\ third time of asking, even though I still cannot browse the contents of archives in the Resourse Archiver...

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?


I believe the missing Ajax staff is in the database, but marked as "Not for extraction", so I think you should remove that mark to add them in the editor. Then it would not be needed to add them all again.

File is now available for download. Enjoy all 👍

For all those who will be using it in an existing save game, please make sure to re-apply these files since the full release of FM21 recreates some files originally deleted when installing the previous version of this download. For club name changes, you'll need to do the workaround in the first post.

As I understand what he says you'll have to wait until you can download the editor, go to the ajax staff in the database and look for it in there.

It's far from as easy as @ottooo makes it seem, unfortunately, which is why it's not been included in this download for now.

Is anyone working on it? If so any chance of a very rough ETA? If not or if it's gonna be a while then I'll try and manually add the staff myself (hope this doesn't come off as too entitled or anything i realise that people do this in their free time)

Also, massively appreciate all of the work that you guys do on here

I would like to say something. Mons is providing this file - his time, essentially - completely free of charge. And although a few of us offer our thanks, way too many, I feel, take this for granted.

No offense taken whatsoever 🙂

Due to the various constraints on my time, I cannot commit to working on such a file which due to the nature of it will be somewhat time-consuming and quite tedious.

However, if somebody with knowledge of the editor and who has FM20 installed is willing to put the time in and create it himself, I would gladly add it to this download and give him full credit. To avoid duplicate work and in view of some pointers I may be able to offer ( 😉 ), anybody interested in contributing on this file can PM me 🙂

You can delete 2110, but I don't think it'll make much difference. Knock yourself out though 😉

I noticed that, unlike in the Beta version, the \2110\ folder included edt & lnc subfolders as well as the dbc one, so I deleted them and copied the fixed ones in that folder as well. Just to be sure. 🙂

Read the installation instructions carefully and follow them.

As per the main post, if this file is installed after having already started a save game, this is one of the fixes which won't see any changes.

Guys, first good night and thanks for the correction. However, the colors of some teams in Brazil have not been changed. Cruzeiro, for example, has colors like Blue and White, and here it remains red. I did exactly the same as the tutorial. Someone with the same problem?
