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

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

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.

What is it that you want to know? If you want to see which media and journalists are added, use the pre-game editor to load up the respective files and check them out. There are too many entries in it for me to have kept a list of, so you'll have to check yourself 👍

Hi @mons Greets. what i mean is that:how many media and journalists are added?
like example: “A Complete Media Collection: Adds 4.250+ real media, 1.000 real journalists & 80 bookmakers, along with their styles & personalities.” 

i missed that Info , so it helps, to know the File Details and then to choose, which Files we can download or not.

Thank You very much!

Again, I have no info about that off the top of my head, and it'll probably be hundreds of journalists, a dozen or so bookmakers and thousands of media sources.

 

Frankly, this is something you can find out very easily yourself by opening the editor data files in question yourself with the pre-game editor and checking the entries added 👍

I hope someone can help with this. The “enable mods” option seems to be missing from my version of the game pass app. Has it been removed or am I doing something wrong?

Unfortunately that looks like a way to continue to play with mods that have previously been able to be installed. If you haven't already installed them it looks like that won't help. It might answer my question though, looks like they might have removed the feature :/ 

 

Thanks anyway for the reply!

1 check app updates on Microsoft Store, some old versions wont support mod.


2- try download “Xbox insider hub” ( https://www.microsoft.com/store/productId/9PLDPG46G47Z )  and subscribe to windows Gaming Previews.

 

If it wont show mod options maybe need uninstall and reinstall all Xbox associate programs on windows.

 

GL!

Hi mons,

 

I don't  know if it's linked to the Juventus licensing issue but for some reason when I start a Torino career, Juventus don't show as their rivals or as their derby game, even though it's a huge rivalry. However Torino show as Juventus derby game in the Juve information screen. Any ideas? Or is it just a DB issue?

 

Thanks

J

It's a known issue related to licensing restrictions which has been present since FM21, and which I haven't been able to rectify, unfortunately.

Ah that's so weird. 

 

I spent half an hour on live chat with an Xbox expert after you replied to me the other day going through a few potential fixes and nothing worked. 

 

I installed the latest version of the Xbox app. Not sure what it could be? Different by region maybe?

So going through all this and following every step I finally fixed the French/Dutch national team face thing but in exchange I've lost Juventus' name back to Zebre… I have no other files in ALL the folders 2200 - 2240 and the editor data only contains the folders from the 22.4.1 fix

 

Is it because I cleared the config.xml file? I still have correct names for Brazilian clubs etc.

Did you apply the fix after starting a save game? If you did, then to get the club name changes (including Juventus), then you need to do the workaround in the first post 👍

Hey! I've been playing with this mod without an issue until yesterday. In a already modded game that worked fine now it's back to 3 letters for the brazilian clubs. From the files date, FM maybe pushed out an update. This is the Gamepass version.

 

The thing is that even modding it back doesn't change them to what I had in the saved game before yesterday. Am I doing something wrong? I had no issues for the last month or so.

 

Edit: I found what the problem was. For some weird reason the FM went back to before allowing mods. I had to activate it again.

It takes 2 seconds to download the file and 2 seconds to open it with Notepad and check it yourself, you know 😉

 

You'd see that the long name is Jupiler Pro League and the short name is Eerste klasse A.

 

If this is not correct, let me know, ideally with evidence and I'll change it for the FM23 version of the file 👍
