If you are playing an FM23 save in FM24, then this fix needs to be also installed in the below folders:

 

If you have any issues, first read the FAQ.

 

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 2024 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 National team doesn't call up real players. These fixes are all fully save-game compatible.
 

The following are not included in the beta version of this file. 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 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.

If you are playing an FM23 save in FM24, then this fix needs to be also installed in the folders in the below image IN ADDITION TO THOSE INDICATED BELOW the image:

The easiest way to get to these folders is by going to Finder > Go > Go to Folder and copy and paste these exact paths and you will be taken to the right places  ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Football Manager 2024/data/database/db/2400/

 

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.

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 2430 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 2024\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 2024’

 

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 2024 / editor data

 

Equivalent folder for Epic Games

/Users / [your user] / Library / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2024 / 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, German national teams will be populated in the next instance that players are called up, and not immediately. 
 

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.

 

The final version of this download for the default database can be downloaded from here.

I suspect you're only seeing the sponsor-free names in European competitions, which is part of the licensing agreement SI have with UEFA, I believe.

 

thanks for the answer: so you mean is correct that i read the names in pictures attachment and not the original? is a license champions league problem?

I already explained it's a licensing issue related to how sponsored stadiums display in European competitions and which cannot be changed. There's not much else to say.

the correct spelling for

#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24016568 "NK Mladost Varazdin" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24016568 "Mladost Varazdin" ""
 

is "NK Mladost Varaždin" and "Mladost Varaždin", respectively

 

there is also an inconsistency with the short name in this case:

#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 1105977 "NK Croatia Đakovo" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 1105977 "Croatia (Đ)" ""
 

it should be "Croatia Đakovo" instead to align with the rest of the short names, although it’s actually the correct way to abbreviate the club name (club name and initial of the locality it represents) and used in croatian media.

 

#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24043154 "NK Potpićan - Učka 72" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24043154 "Potpićan - Učka" ""

#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 3607261 "Eintracht Frankfurt II" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 3607261 "Eintracht Frankfurt II" ""
 

short name is "Eintracht", not "Eintracht Frankfurt" - i had already pointed it out previously and referred to the official website:

https://sortitoutsi.net/comments/get/749251

https://www.eintracht.de/

 

#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 930 "FSV Frankfurt" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 930 "FSV Frankfurt" ""
#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 91013553 "FSV Frankfurt II" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 91013553 "FSV Frankfurt II" ""
 

short name is just "Frankfurt"

 

#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 5341645 "Kampala City Council FC" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 5341645 "KCC" ""
 

both incorrect. the club’s name is "Kampala Capital City Authority Football Club" - short name is "KCCA FC"

It's true there is an entry in the lnc file without the diacritic, but there's also one further down in the same file with it, as well as in the editor data file, so this actually already displays correctly in-game. I've removed the surplus line from the file for the avoidance of doubt 😉

You will notice that I changed the names in the file from last year, following your feedback. It is however a bit confusing (to the common user) for the lower-division team to be named as Frankfurt, and not the Bundesliga team from the same city. As a compromise, I have given the short name for both to be the same as the long name, so there is no doubt which is which.

 

And to be honest, providing a matchday programme from 56 years ago by way of evidence is not necessarily a reflection of the modern-day situation…

I know this is mostly focused around competitions and clubs, but is there any way that currency name can be manipulated. I can add a new currency and set the exchange rate, but I can't name it so I'm wondering if it can be done either through this or through some other kind of workaround. At the moment it just does the thing where you type anything and it reverts back to default (or blank if it's new)

in the section

 

## AFRICAN CLUB COMPETITIONS CHANGES

 

you have

it should be

# African Confederation Cup

"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 8351374 "Kupa e Shqipërisë" ""

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 8351454 "Superkupa Shqiptare" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 8351454 "Superkupa" ""
 

correct long name is "Superkupa e Shqipërisë"

https://fshf.org/sq/tag/superkupa-e-shqiperise/

 

croatian competitions need a major overhaul, orthography, grammar and other errors are present, together with league inaccuracies:

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 2000005623 "Treća Liga NL" ""

 

"Liga" has to be removed → NL stands for "Nogometna liga", thus you have redundancy.

alternatively, "Treća nogometna liga", but not as it is now → applies to all the divisions where the same error is present.

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 661721 "Treća Liga NL - Istok" ""

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 661724 "Treća Liga NL - Jug" ""

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 2000122195 "Treća Liga NL - Sjever" ""

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 129648 "SuperSport Hrvatski Kup" ""

 

correct long name is "SuperSport Hrvatski nogometni kup" (also note the different capitalization)

https://hns.family/vijesti/27270/poznati-svi-cetvrtfinalisti-supersport-hrvatskog-nogometnog-kupa/

 

correct short name is "HNK"

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 130934 "SuperSport Superkup" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 130934 "Hrvatski Superkup" ""
 

correct long name is "SuperSport Hrvatski nogometni superkup" (also note the different capitalization) → see official match report

https://hns.family/files/documents/24429/Parovi,suci,delegat-SUPERKUP%202022%20doc.pdf

 

correct short name is "HSK"

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 129647 "Prva Županijska Liga" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 129647 "1. ŽNL" ""
 

this is a generic entry in the database, it was called »lower league« in previous iterations → 1. ŽNL doesn’t apply, since it refers to a specific league level.

 

correct long name is "Niža nogometna liga" (lower football league), correct short name is "NNL".

alternatively, "Županijska nogometna liga" (county football league) and "ŽNL".

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24000258 "Prva ŽNL Središte/NS Zagreb" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24000258 "1. ŽNL Središte/NS Zagreb" ""
 

no such league → it’s a mashup of the 4. NL Središte Zagreb with the term for "county league" (see correction above) → the 4. NL Središte Zagreb (which in reality is level 05 of the croatian football pyramid) is an INTER-COUNTY lague and consists of two groups (A and B).

the highest COUNTY league is the JŽNL, or "Jedinstvena županijska nogometna liga" (unified county league / one-division county league) → short name is "JŽNL".

https://ns-vrbovec.hr/natjecanja/

 

the in-game football manager divisions don’t correlate with real-world leagues on the lower levels (inter-county leagues have been omitted), thus the generic term "county league" would be the best fit.

another reason why "1. ŽNL" should be avoided is that some counties only have one county league, there are no tiers:

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24000266 "Prva ŽNL Ličko-Senjska" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24000266 "1. ŽNL Ličko-Senjska" ""
 

no such league, only "ŽNL Ličko-senjska"

https://nogometnisavezlsz.hr/natjecanja/

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24000278 "Prva Zagrebačka liga" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24000278 "1. Zagrebačka liga" ""
 

correct long name is "Prva Zagrebačka nogometna liga" → official city fa bulletin

https://zns.hr/images/zns/sluzbeno-glasilo/2023/Nogomet_br.25_2023.pdf

 

correct short name is "1. ZNL"

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24000262 "Prva ŽNL Varaždinska" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24000262 "1. ŽNL Varaždinska" ""
 

the league above the 1. ŽNL is called "Elitna županijska nogometna liga", which would be the correct name if you want to stick to specific tiers of single-county leagues. the correct short name is "EŽNL"

https://zns-varazdin.hr/download/adresar-klubova-zns-varazdin-elitna-znl-2023-24/

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24000277 "Prva ŽNL Međimurska" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24000277 "1. ŽNL Međimurska" ""

https://mns.hr/1-mnl/

 

no such league, the corresponding level is called "Prva međimurska nogometna liga", or "1. MNL" for short. however, here too there is a league ranked above, called "Međimurska premier liga", or "MPL" for short.

https://mns.hr/premier-liga/

 

lastly, the u-19 junior competition has been removed from football manager for whatever reason, but it’s not an extinct competition → it’s called "Prva nogometna liga - Juniori", or "1. NL Juniori", now:

https://hns.family/files/documents/28769/16.KOLO%20-%20JU.pdf

 

the U-19 suffix doesn’t exist in the original name, but you have to be familiar with croatian youth categories to know which are which:

juniori - U-19

https://hnl.hr/natjecanja/juniori/

kadeti - U-17

https://hnl.hr/natjecanja/kadeti/

pioniri - U-15

https://hnl.hr/natjecanja/pioniri/

 

that was a load … cheers.

And to be honest, providing a matchday programme from 56 years ago by way of evidence is not necessarily a reflection of the modern-day situation…

 

a) that’s perfectly fine with me either way, i just pointed out the inconsistency in the naming scheme – the majority of the other clubs have basically their full name in the “short name” entry without the NK (croatian for FC), except for croatia đakovo and one or two others.

 

b) as to eintracht, i did post the club’s official web presence, too – the url is as clear as it gets.

to be honest, i don’t recall when the rechristening caught on, it has mostly been pushed by british media. in germany, it’s common to refer to clubs with the city they represent, with munich being the notable exception, who has successfully managed to brand itself as “bayern”. i understand that it may be confusing, but those are the correct short names for the two respective clubs, and it’s actually confusing to locals like me when eintracht is referred to as "frankfurt" only, knowing that there is another club with that name actually – two as a matter of fact: 1. fc frankfurt

https://www.fcfrankfurt.de/

 

a club who had its heyday in the former gdr, it’s even a different city in eastern germany. there is a bizarre episode with a benfica fan who wanted to attend a europa league match between benfica and eintracht, but ended up in frankfurt (oder) … of course he should have done his research before setting off, but it’s a case in point how detrimental incorrect naming can be:

https://talksport.com/football/529808/benfica-fan-wrong-frankfurt-europa-league/

 

the equivalent would be calling celtic “glasgow” or any of the london clubs simply “london”. but long story short, it’s all good at the end of the day.

croatian competitions need a major overhaul, orthography, grammar and other errors are present, together with league inaccuracies:

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 2000005623 "Treća Liga NL" ""

 

"Liga" has to be removed → NL stands for "Nogometna liga", thus you have redundancy.

alternatively, "Treća nogometna liga", but not as it is now → applies to all the divisions where the same error is present.

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 661721 "Treća Liga NL - Istok" ""

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 661724 "Treća Liga NL - Jug" ""

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 2000122195 "Treća Liga NL - Sjever" ""

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 129648 "SuperSport Hrvatski Kup" ""

 

correct long name is "SuperSport Hrvatski nogometni kup" (also note the different capitalization)

https://hns.family/vijesti/27270/poznati-svi-cetvrtfinalisti-supersport-hrvatskog-nogometnog-kupa/

 

correct short name is "HNK"

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 130934 "SuperSport Superkup" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 130934 "Hrvatski Superkup" ""
 

correct long name is "SuperSport Hrvatski nogometni superkup" (also note the different capitalization) → see official match report

https://hns.family/files/documents/24429/Parovi,suci,delegat-SUPERKUP%202022%20doc.pdf

 

correct short name is "HSK"

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 129647 "Prva Županijska Liga" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 129647 "1. ŽNL" ""
 

this is a generic entry in the database, it was called »lower league« in previous iterations → 1. ŽNL doesn’t apply, since it refers to a specific league level.

 

correct long name is "Niža nogometna liga" (lower football league), correct short name is "NNL".

alternatively, "Županijska nogometna liga" (county football league) and "ŽNL".

All these have been corrected 🍻

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24000258 "Prva ŽNL Središte/NS Zagreb" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24000258 "1. ŽNL Središte/NS Zagreb" ""
 

no such league → it’s a mashup of the 4. NL Središte Zagreb with the term for "county league" (see correction above) → the 4. NL Središte Zagreb (which in reality is level 05 of the croatian football pyramid) is an INTER-COUNTY lague and consists of two groups (A and B).

the highest COUNTY league is the JŽNL, or "Jedinstvena županijska nogometna liga" (unified county league / one-division county league) → short name is "JŽNL".

https://ns-vrbovec.hr/natjecanja/

 

Can you tell me exactly what this entry should be then? It's good you're giving me a thorough explanation of your workings, but ideally I'd have a clear before and after text 😉

 

 

By cameosis 21 December 2023 - 11:15 AM UTC 

the in-game football manager divisions don’t correlate with real-world leagues on the lower levels (inter-county leagues have been omitted), thus the generic term "county league" would be the best fit.

another reason why "1. ŽNL" should be avoided is that some counties only have one county league, there are no tiers:

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24000266 "Prva ŽNL Ličko-Senjska" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24000266 "1. ŽNL Ličko-Senjska" ""
 

no such league, only "ŽNL Ličko-senjska"

https://nogometnisavezlsz.hr/natjecanja/

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24000278 "Prva Zagrebačka liga" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24000278 "1. Zagrebačka liga" ""
 

correct long name is "Prva Zagrebačka nogometna liga" → official city fa bulletin

https://zns.hr/images/zns/sluzbeno-glasilo/2023/Nogomet_br.25_2023.pdf

 

correct short name is "1. ZNL"

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24000262 "Prva ŽNL Varaždinska" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24000262 "1. ŽNL Varaždinska" ""
 

the league above the 1. ŽNL is called "Elitna županijska nogometna liga", which would be the correct name if you want to stick to specific tiers of single-county leagues. the correct short name is "EŽNL"

https://zns-varazdin.hr/download/adresar-klubova-zns-varazdin-elitna-znl-2023-24/

 

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 24000277 "Prva ŽNL Međimurska" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 24000277 "1. ŽNL Međimurska" ""

https://mns.hr/1-mnl/

 

no such league, the corresponding level is called "Prva međimurska nogometna liga", or "1. MNL" for short. however, here too there is a league ranked above, called "Međimurska premier liga", or "MPL" for short.

https://mns.hr/premier-liga/

 

lastly, the u-19 junior competition has been removed from football manager for whatever reason, but it’s not an extinct competition → it’s called "Prva nogometna liga - Juniori", or "1. NL Juniori", now:

https://hns.family/files/documents/28769/16.KOLO%20-%20JU.pdf

 

the U-19 suffix doesn’t exist in the original name, but you have to be familiar with croatian youth categories to know which are which:

juniori - U-19

https://hnl.hr/natjecanja/juniori/

kadeti - U-17

https://hnl.hr/natjecanja/kadeti/

pioniri - U-15

https://hnl.hr/natjecanja/pioniri/

 

that was a load … cheers.

 

Thanks for all the above but I'm still not sure which UID should be named what.

 

Here's the most recent file after all the above proposed changes have been applied.

 

If there are any changes you think should be made, please post just those competitions in the below format - and removing any entries which are already correct. Please don't post the whole thing again 👍

a) that’s perfectly fine with me either way, i just pointed out the inconsistency in the naming scheme – the majority of the other clubs have basically their full name in the “short name” entry without the NK (croatian for FC), except for croatia đakovo and one or two others.

 

b) as to eintracht, i did post the club’s official web presence, too – the url is as clear as it gets.

to be honest, i don’t recall when the rechristening caught on, it has mostly been pushed by british media. in germany, it’s common to refer to clubs with the city they represent, with munich being the notable exception, who has successfully managed to brand itself as “bayern”. i understand that it may be confusing, but those are the correct short names for the two respective clubs, and it’s actually confusing to locals like me when eintracht is referred to as "frankfurt" only, knowing that there is another club with that name actually – two as a matter of fact: 1. fc frankfurt

https://www.fcfrankfurt.de/

 

a club who had its heyday in the former gdr, it’s even a different city in eastern germany. there is a bizarre episode with a benfica fan who wanted to attend a europa league match between benfica and eintracht, but ended up in frankfurt (oder) … of course he should have done his research before setting off, but it’s a case in point how detrimental incorrect naming can be:

https://talksport.com/football/529808/benfica-fan-wrong-frankfurt-europa-league/

 

the equivalent would be calling celtic “glasgow” or any of the london clubs simply “london”. but long story short, it’s all good at the end of the day.

 

I see what you mean but the way they are named now makes it clear which of the 3 clubs is which, both in short and long names. The smaller Frankfurt club is in fact the final entry in the list 😉

@mons the reason i posted all the info is to a) clarify why and what is wrong and b) that what i'm saying is sourced.

 

of course i can just post the uids with the corrections if you prefer that. i just wanted to avoid the impression that my corrections are personal preference or claims without sources.

 

regarding the croatian lower leagues, fm lumps clubs from different leagues of the county into their respective game »regional league«.

do you want the name of the highest league in each county (in which many of these clubs don't play) or the generic term for the respective league, which would better reflect si's decision? let me know.

 

on another note, i don't play the game - too busy working on graphics add-ons for the game, which means i can't verify/check stuff in-game, only in the lnc files.

 

if something i post in the future is correct in-game, just disregard it.

Given you're more of a expert on this than me, I'll trust your judgement and name them whichever way you think best reflects the FM world 👍

 

Oh, and I know what you mean, I haven't even played FM for a couple of years now too.

Thanks for that @cameosis. The Kampala fix got added earlier 😉

 

I'm not a big fan of adding nogometna in there to be perfectly honest. It's football, and I reckon it's a bit tautologous imo…

oh, don’t get me started on that, sometimes i wonder if people take a moment to think what the initials actually stand for when they decide on names …

 

on the other hand, those are the actual and mostly official league names - if you applied this to all the leagues across the game, there wouldn’t be much »football« left in there (english football league, anyone?) and we’d be in fictional name territory again. 😁 there are also other sports leagues which carry a league name without the »football« part, that’s another issue. of course, basketball, handball et al aren’t in a game called »football manager«, but still. over time, you’ll notice i’m a completist generously feeding my ocd pet and obsession over minute details. 💀

 

but either way, they’re just suggestions for correcting name entries, you decide which to pick and which to leave out.

the following additions and corrections should be made → the entire section needs to be replaced due to spelling and grammatical errors and one factual error.

i have added the names in the then-official languages, given that it was a multinational/multiethnic state

EM and WM added as 3 letter names

 

Mondiale isn't the exact term used in Italian, which I speak. Both terms are in fact used in the Gazzetta article you linked to, in fact. I'm happy with Mondiale as it stands.

 

Added the Spanish one too 👍

you mean you’re happy with »mondiali« 😂 - »mondiale« was my change suggestion, hehe. the gazzetta header was a bit inept in that regard, they used mondiali in reference to more than one wc (both national team and club), but it’s fine with me either way. 👍

 

as to san marino, they have only one tier now for »regular« football:

https://www.fsgc.sm/campionato-sammarinese/#tab-id-2

 

serie a2 was abolished in 1996. futsal on the other hand seems to have two tiers and several groups:

https://www.sanmarinoacademy.sm/table/serie-a2-girone-a-2022-23/

 

i will eventually have a look at spanish names for international comps, but i didn’t want to spend all day sifting through entries. XD cheers

Oh yeah, it's Mondiali I meant 🤦🏼‍♂️

 

Ah, I see where the confusion on this one was. 43032015 is the UID of the Sanmarinese top tier. The A2 competition has the UID of 60024420.

 

I don't think renaming international comps in Spanish too is warranted tbph, but if you want to give it a go - just type the codes you want to add, for me to copy-paste them into the right place 👍

ah crap, that error must have crept in when i copied and pasted several times. i have a some different naming formats for the database version i started building but wanted to keep it consistent with yours. good thing you spotted it! 👍
