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

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.

You didn't follow the instructions right. In step 1, it says to delete the dbc, edt and lnc folder. You've deleted the 22xx_fm folder as well, which contains the game's database and which you shouldn't have done.

 

To get it back, you need to get Steam to verify the integrity of the game files. Then reinstall the files from this download, paying careful attention to the instructions 👍

 

I figured it as much, I moved my database and game save to another folder and delete and reinstalled the game and everything back to normal.

You needn't even have done that. The game save is intentionally in a completely different path by default to avoid any issues when verifying the integrity of the game files 😉

Can I have a screenshot of what you mean?

 

It might be worth re-downloading it and re-extracting it, in case you somehow didn't extract it correctly.

 

Thanks I just re-downloaded and re-extracted it

The short names of the Pitching In Northern Premier League and its sub-divisions should really be Northern Premier Premier (5103716), Northern Premier South East (90081108) and Northern Premier North West (90081109) - always including the Premier. Removing the Premier leaves it showing as Northern League, which is a different league (30007239).

 

The long names of the South East and the North West also only say Northern League, completely missing out the word Premier. The Premier Division's long name is also missing the word League.

 

SI haven't (as of yet) done the restructure of the Northern Premier League (the South East and North West is now three separate divisions - East, Midlands and West) but the League themselves don't refer to their second tiers as Division One or League One either, as shown on their website. The existing is shown in image below, using Mossley in-game as an example, who should show Northern Premier North West.

 

They should read:

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 5103716 "Pitching In Northern Premier League Premier" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 5103716 "Northern Premier Premier" ""

Sorry I'm a proper noob. I've been trying to get this to work fully for the last 14 hours but no success. 

 

The data editor bit (I think step 4 onwards) I can't seem to get right. Man ufc is still united name and juve is still zebre, ajax and Germany staff teams still not right. 

 

I've created data editor folder in fm 22 and copied the files into that but hasn't worked, created additional data editor folders in the fm updates in data but didn't work. 

 

Noticed that when starting a new game it doesn't give me the option of selecting database. Seems to be grayed out which might be the reason why it's not working I don't know. It's frying my head now haha. Total noob breakdown. Would appreciate any help..?

You should have posted before spending 14 hours on it 🙂

 

If the bit in bold is correct, you just need to click on advanced setup in the bottom right when starting a new game. It's an entirely normal process when you add editor data files.

 

Can I have screenshots of all the locations which have a screenshot in the main post?

 

May I also remind you that bits of this fix won't working in existing save game (such as club names), as outlined in the main post.

Attached some screenshots for some context - you can see man utd name hasnt changed also the logo hasn't appeared there yet either. - also is the location of the files from sort it out si. I created the Editor Data folder in the fm22 location. 

 

I'm at a loss.

Remove the editor data folder from the 1st and 2nd screenshots, both are most definitely not where it should be.

 

Step 5 outlines where the contents of that folder should go

 

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

 

complete with a screenshot of the path it should have and the files it should contain within it.

Thank you for that, I've read the steps again and again. I must have misunderstood it every time until your message. Thank you for helping me  (I've truly earned my title of noob). 

 

Any tips for correcting the united logo? I have the logo template and miniature logo I just need them to work in the game now. Is there something I paste in the config file?

No worries, these things happen.

 

As for the United logo, you'll need to download a logo pack which contains it.

Hello, first of all the files work like a treat, thank you very much for this.

 

I just have one little bit of input to add.

 

I play the game in German and maybe with a few but at least with one major competition, the Champions League, the german article is wrong. I browsed a bit and found out, that adding the line ""COMP_GENDER_CHANGE" 1301394 2 "German"" to the “Competitions and other Fixes” file fixes this.

I didn't check every competition in the game, but with the Champions League it was the most jarring because it's regularly coming up in my FM-Inbox.

 

Maybe you could look into that, or just add this line of code (if it doesn't trouble other stuff) for your next official release, 

 

Thank you once again for your great work!

 

Edit:

It seems to be the case for the Europa League and Europa Conference League as well, the lines for the files are 

"COMP_GENDER_CHANGE" 1301396 2 "German" 

and

"COMP_GENDER_CHANGE" 31051584 2 "German"

for these

Hi all, Happy New Year.

 

I made a request for SI to correct some names, that have yet to be updated. They (SI or one of their staff), reply they aren't changing the names of those countries since they are using the English names for those countries. Yet, on FIFA World Ranking site, shows that some countries have drastically changed their names and others made a few adjustments to the name.

 

I really thought, that linking to the FIFA World Ranking site, would persuade SI to change the names since it is the highest representative of football across the world, but I guess not.

 

So I thought to raise these issues here and at the least have a debate if this should be corrected with Real Name Fix file.

 

So the countries in question drastically changed names:

- Swaziland should be Eswatini.

- Holland should be the Netherlands

- In the nation of Czech Republic, the short name should be Czechia

- Kyrgyzstan should be Kyrgyz Republic

 

Countries that can be debatable in changing (these are countries that several places use these names, but aren't the official names):

- North Korea should be Korea DPR

- South Korea should be Korea Republic

- East Timor should be Timor-Leste

 

Not to mention, a misspell city and other cities missing the local region information, all within the nation of USA.

 

What do you guys think?

Hello, first of all the files work like a treat, thank you very much for this.

 

I just have one little bit of input to add.

 

I play the game in German and maybe with a few but at least with one major competition, the Champions League, the german article is wrong. I browsed a bit and found out, that adding the line ""COMP_GENDER_CHANGE" 1301394 2 "German"" to the “Competitions and other Fixes” file fixes this.

I didn't check every competition in the game, but with the Champions League it was the most jarring because it's regularly coming up in my FM-Inbox.

 

Maybe you could look into that, or just add this line of code (if it doesn't trouble other stuff) for your next official release, 

 

Thank you once again for your great work!

 

I wasn't aware that lnc code existed. You live and learn. Since I don't speak German and I want to be absolutely surely what I'm adding is definitely correct, could you be so kind as to send me a private message including this and any other similar entries you deem most important to add?

 

Ideally, I just copy/paste it into the right places, giving you all the credit naturally!

Hi all, Happy New Year.

 

I made a request for SI to correct some names, that have yet to be updated. They (SI or one of their staff), reply they aren't changing the names of those countries since they are using the English names for those countries. Yet, on FIFA World Ranking site, shows that some countries have drastically changed their names and others made a few adjustments to the name.

 

I really thought, that linking to the FIFA World Ranking site, would persuade SI to change the names since it is the highest representative of football across the world, but I guess not.

 

So I thought to raise these issues here and at the least have a debate if this should be corrected with Real Name Fix file.

 

So the countries in question drastically changed names:

- Swaziland should be Eswatini.

- Holland should be the Netherlands

- In the nation of Czech Republic, the short name should be Czechia

- Kyrgyzstan should be Kyrgyz Republic

 

Countries that can be debatable in changing (these are countries that several places use these names, but aren't the official names):

- North Korea should be Korea DPR

- South Korea should be Korea Republic

- East Timor should be Timor-Leste

 

Not to mention, a misspell city and other cities missing the local region information, all within the nation of USA.

 

What do you guys think?

At least some of them, if not all, are actually already in the file titled Competitions and other Fixes.lnc actually, are you using this fix at all?

 

If there's anything specific that you think should be changed, particularly regarding the proposed American changes, can you submit specific lines where you think the current entries in the file should be changed? Cities missing their local region, however, aren't something which can be amended using this file.

Will do.

 

I bought the game this week, I haven't yet installed the file. Once I do I will check the names.

Get on it then 😉 It's less than 1 MB and shouldn't take you more than a minute or so to install, and you can see which (if any) of the changes you've proposed aren't in place yet 🙂

Just installed the file…

 

:O I'm truly amazed at the amount of work you guys put into this file. Part of me that wants perfection is excited about this.

 

The only note I have is regarding the Czech Republic. I noticed the name is The Czech Republic and the short name is Czech Republic. I would probably lose the “The” in the name and in the short name be Czechia. But I'm totally fine as is. 😀

Although I'm aware that it's called Czechia in some instances, the FIFA world rankings site still has it as Czech Republic, so that's what I'll keep it as. The definite article in front of the long name is needed to make sense in terms of how it is usually display in-game. “Germany were beaten by the Czech Republic” reads better than “Germany were beaten by Czech Republic” imo, which is why it's in the format it is in the file…

okay, i'm totally fine with that.

 

I read the name Czechia on the Elo Rankings and found it was the short name for Czech Republic, but I agree with your point of view.

 

I will check the case of the misspell name city of the USA, But I will confirm it must later tonight.

 

Thanks for your and the community excellent job.

I need help, I followed all the points, the european comp names have changed but United are still Man UFC and Juve still zebre. Im on windows 10, the instructions are pretty simple but every new game i start, I still get the fake club names. Any ideas. Do i have to tick something in preferences ?

Just to add Im only on the demo version for now as looking to buy the game next payday, but all the  logo , kits and facepacks have loaded as well as the champions league etc showing correct name . 

I have read this thread and trouble shooted everything before asking but im at a loss

I have the same issue as @NCon41, albeit I'm on the full game.

 

The editor file data is in the right place, so it's really hard to pinpoint what the issue is. The Utd logo etc is all working for what it's worth, as are the competition names and so on. It's just those other 11 changes that haven't worked, such as the team names of Utd and Juve.
