Hello friends.

First post here but I've been playing Championship Manager/Football Manager since 95/96 season and Kevin Keegan's Player Manager before that. I've never posted before but been a paying member for 9 years! So I come in peace! I've never had cause to post before but this is really getting to me so am reaching out for help... spent hours trying to figure it out yesterday and still can't get it to work.

I'm a strange one and ever since the Editor came about I've liked to do hours and hours of editing to lower leagues etc. In recent years my thing has been to always make a playable team out of a Kevin Keegan's PLayer Manager team I used to always be back in 93... see how they work it out in the real world. And then make loads of other interesting teams to duke it out with them in those leagues.

I'm just starting that process with FM21. I've downloaded the facepacks and kits etc, and unlike before, downloaded the main sortitoutsi fixes to change Zebre etc.

Trying to work through all my fu*kery in systematic fashion, the first thing I've done myself is change the English Competition names. I like to change the branding and logos. Changed the Prem back to the Barclays Prem and then the other leagues.

I saved those changes (41 in all) on a different data editor file called 'comp changes'. I hadn't loaded any other editor files before saving again as another file so I didn't double up on anything.

I tried running the game and when the data first loaded for me to pick the leagues to run, my changes are there... but when it completes the setting up and the game starts, the leagues are back to the original names.

I tried to go round and round - I tested it 50 times trying all different things....

I've tried running it without the other 9 sortitoutsi files and it makes no difference so that seems to suggest they are not overwriting the data editor file I've made (I also checked them for any league changes and can't find any). But something is effecting my file.

The one clue we have is that although the long and short names have all reverted/been overwritten... the 3 letter names have remained changed to my versions. So some of the changes from my file have got through or not been overwritten.

Additional test: I tried making a completely new file with only Premier League changed to Barclays Premier League and still the same result.

I'm sure many of you have a better understanding of what processes happen after you've selected leagues and what might be effecting it.

Many thanks for your help.

@smilesimon17 Competition name changes in the real names fix file are made in the lnc files (the Competitions one to be precise), and not in any of the editor data files. So what you'll need to do is open the Competitions lnc file with Notepad and remove the entries for the competitions that you've edited.

Instead of removing them outright, I'd suggest putting a hashtag (#) in front of them as this will mean they're just disabled, and can be activated at any time, including in a save game, by merely removing the hashtag.

In actual fact, I'd recommend that long and short competition name changes are actually made in an lnc file instead of an editor data file, as the former is editable within a save game while the latter is irrevocably fixed once a save game is started.

@mons thank you I did think it was perhaps something to do with those files but know so little about them... first time I've ever touched them so makes perfect sense now.

I haven't got time to correct tonight but will soon and report back. Thank you so much for replying.

Have a look at this thread and this page for more info on how lnc files work 👍

I don't know if I am right here in the group

but have 2 questions.

1. How can I set up the system in FMSE 20 so that in the Spanish league instead of 7, 12 replacement players can be in the squad. and cancel the squad registration that I can register 30 players instead of 25 players?

2. How can it be that I can participate with a national team for the World Cup and European Championship qualification, but cannot participate in the Nations League?

That is not the Pre game editor

suggest you ask your questions where you got the editor from, and you cant edit any of those rules with an IGE only with Pre game editor as I have fully explained to you

in future you need to start your own thread if it is nothing to do with the thread you are posting in
Also you clearly need to state the editor you are using its version and anything that is relevant to your question. Also you can post images directly to the post

your question is confusing,it has nothing to do with this thread and the image shows nothing to assist in any way at all ,start your own thread and be clear in what you are asking
