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 2022 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. 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, as well as Manchester Utd, 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. Another editor data file creates the Ajax non-playing staff and the German national team manager missing from the database due to licensing restrictions. 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

Click on the game in Gamepass and enable mods as per the below:

 

When you click “Enable Mods”, this is what comes up: 

 

When you click “Enable Mods”, you'll be notified that mods are now enabled: 

 

And when you click “Open Mods Folder", it'll take you to the location where the game is installed:

Equivalent folders for Mac users

/ Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2022 / data / database / db / 2240 
 

DELETE only 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 menu

 

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.

 


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 2240 folder:

 

dbc: 

 

dbc/permanent: 

 

edt/permanent: 


lnc: 

 


STEP 4:
COPY the 11 files located in the EDITOR DATA FILES folder in the downloaded pack

 

STEP 5
PASTE to \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2022\editor data

 

This is also the same folder to be used for Gamepass.

 

As stated by SI themselves, for Gamepass, however:

 

You are not able to change the user data location as such but you can use the user data folder in Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2022 to store facepacks and graphics.

 

Equivalent folder for Mac

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 2022’[/spoiler]

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.


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.

 

 

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 and German 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.

Hello manager colleagues, apparently I'm too stupid or am doing something wrong or forgetting something. I downloaded the update, I followed all my tips, but it doesn't show me the Hansi Flick, Manchester United and Juventus Turin also have their other names. Do I also have to include / load something in the editor? Sorry, I know, it is actually well described everywhere, but it has no effect on me. I loaded the following download and packed it into the folder according to the instructions. FM2022 Sortitoutsi Licensing and Real Name Fix File v1.3 Before doing the following downloads: Leagues in focus and sortitoutsi.netFM22 Data Update - 2021-11-28 04-11-20 Can you actually change the club names as well as the player names in the editor without causing problems? Sorry I ask. Am a newbie to Sega Football Manager, played another manager for a long time.

I'm not sure I understand the question 😕

 

Move the files into the correct folder and start a new game. If done correctly, you should have the changes in the save game that is created.

I have no idea what exactly you're asking and what relevance it has to this file; we're going round in circles.

 

I've already explained where to place your file and to start a new game to see if it works. Until you do so, I really have nothing more to add 😕

The files within the editor data folder from this download need to be placed directly in the above folder, alongside the ones in your screenshot and not in a sub-folder.

 

That's it. It's really rather simple, all it should take you is 10 seconds at most…

Thanks very much. In the game everything is as it should be. Unfortunately, I was confused because the wrong data is still stored in the editor. I apologize for my ignorance.

Hey, after installing Licensing and Real Names update everything works flawlessly. Although I've tried to create my own player using the editor and when I go to start a new game with your changes and my own new player included, my new player doesnt show up ingame but all of your changes remain.

 

Is there a way around this at all? I just cannot seem to add players after installing Licensing and Real Names.

 

Thanks

It's a known bug with the editor and is not just when you have these particular files from this download installed. It's hoped that any forthcoming update released by SI will be able to resolve this issue.

Thank you. Although I've installed a number of other addons such as, kits, facepacks etc and I was still able to create and have those new players show up without any of the bugs that you're referring. I'm not trying to throw shade or anything because I love this download, it just seemed strange that new players I added didn't show after this download but did before. Thanks again tho, love the work and hopefully SI bring a fix for this.

I hear you, but the issue seems to occur when multiple editor data files are running concurrently which edit persons. There's a thread on this in the editor bugs section of the official forums which shows the issue is not specifically related to this download 🙂
