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 2023 to the proper, real life names for awards, cities, stadiums and competitions, in cases where the actual name is not licensed, such as  Premier League displaying instead of Premier Division. 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 Napoli) 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

 

STEP 1.
OPEN 

Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2023\data\database\db\2300


DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

Notes: \Program Files (x86)\ could be \Program Files\ depending on your set up.

I am led to understand that mods are enabled by default this year, so nothing needs to be done other than the below

 

OPEN 

Xboxgames\Football Manager 2023\data\database\db\2300
 

DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

Equivalent folders for PC players on Epic Games

Epic Games Installation


OPEN 

Program Files (x86)\Epic Games\FootballManager2023\data\database\db\2300


DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

Notes: \Program Files (x86)\ could be \Program Files\ depending on your set up.

 

Equivalent folders for Mac users

Mac installation

 

OPEN 

/ Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / steamapps / common / Football Manager 2023 / data / database / db / 2300 
 

DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

The easiest way to get to these folders is by going to Finder > Go > Go to Folder and copy and paste this exact path and you will be taken to the right place  ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Football Manager 2023/data/database/db/2300/

 

Alternatively 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.

 

Equivalent folders for Xbox players on Gamepass

Xbox on Gamepass installation

 

OPEN 

navigate to drive it was installed in (C: or D🙂

Xboxgames>Football manager 2023>content>data>database>db>2300

 

DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

If you can't find where your Xboxgames folder is, you can find it by clicking on “More actions” button (three dots that appears when you move your mouse cursor over Football Manager 2023 on Xbox app), then “Manage” → “Files” tab → “Browse…” button.

 

Equivalent folders for FM TOUCH 23 on Mac users

FM TOUCH 23 Mac Os installation

 

OPEN 

/ Applications / fm.app / Contents / Resources / data / database / db / 2300
 

DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

Equivalent folders for Steam Deck users

Steam Deck installation

 

if game is store on external micro SD card

OPEN 

devices / rootfs / run / media / mmcblk0p1 / steamapps / common / Football Manager 2023 / data / database / db / 2300 
 

DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

 

if game is stored on internal storage

OPEN 

devices  / home  / deck  / .local  / share  / Steam  / steamapps  / common  / Football Manager 2023  / data  / database  / db  / 2300


DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc 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 2300 folder:

 

dbc: 

dbc/permanent: 

edt/permanent: 

lnc: 

 

STEP 4:
COPY the 9 files located in the EDITOR DATA FILES folder in the downloaded pack

 

STEP 5
PASTE to \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2023\editor data

 

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

 

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 2023’

 

Equivalent folder for Steam Deck

devices / home / deck / .local / share / Steam / steamapps / compatdata / 1904540 / pfx / drive_c / users / steamuser / My Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2023 / editor data

 

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 English Premier Division in your saved game, and it should be renamed to Premier League. If you are in the middle of a save-game when you install this download, 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.

I can't see anything wrong, either in the lnc file or the file structure. You have closed down FM and started it again, I imagine?

 

What's in your editor data folder?

Found it! In the db folder, there should be a folder titled 2300, in which the files from this download are to be saved.

Hello I have the same problem with Manchester United.
I took a different logo pack and unfortunately the problem still exists.
So I don't think it has anything to do with the pack.
Thanks for your help.
Greeting
dirk

 

I also have this problem. What's funny is, that when i downloarded this zip and installed it two weeks ago, Manchester United was shown with the logo. Several days ago, I realised, that it's gone. Thought, that there might have been an update, but no. Can't see the problem

It's one of the fixes in v1.3, which will include a review of Italian lower-league club names.

Not entirely. This is the official name as per the Turkish Football Federation's official website, i.e. it's correct in this download.

 

I'm not sure how you didn't find anything online about it @GingaMilla.FM - the first and second results in a Google search refer to it 😕
