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 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, 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 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

Equivalent folders for PC players on Gamepass

Before being able to operate these files, you need to get Gamepass to enable mods - thanks to @MrGizMo for help on the below guide on how to do so

 

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

Mac

 

OPEN 

/ Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2022 / data / database / db / 2200 
 

DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

OPEN 

/ Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2022 / data / database / db / 2201 
 

DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

OPEN 

/ Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2022 / data / database / db / 2210 
 

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.

 


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 2210 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

 

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.

Haven't played fm22 beta yet, but from fm21 version 320015 french team Athletic Club Arlesien doesn't have to go by the name AC ARLES-AVIGNON this team ceased to exist some years now. I think AC Arles or AC Arlesien would be fine instead, if any french mate can confirm that

 

Thanks for the heads-up, will make sure to remove this club name change in the next version 👍

For French clubs in the Dutch language, there is an inconsistency in naming their first and secondary squads. Like PSG and Paris SG 2 (preview Xavi Simons):

 

I've checked the files and I suspect the reason is because you're not playing in the English language. The club name changes via the lnc files will only work for English, whereas the club name changes via the editor data file (not accessible prior to the release of the game and the editor) will work for all languages.

 

Could you try changing languages and letting me know if the issue is resolved in English but apparent in other languages?

I've set my DB language to English but it does not resolve the issue. I see in the LNC that the names are not specified for the B-teams? Maybe you could also add them with “Dutch" at the end; that should resolve it.

 

Maybe I can look into it this weekend and send you over the lines to add to the file?

I think you can only correct that one after the game launches as it has to be done via in-game editor.
