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:


OPEN 

Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2024\data\database\db\2400


DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc folders
 

OPEN

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

 

Equivalent folders for PC players on Gamepass

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

 

OPEN

DELETE only the dbc , edt and lnc folders

 

OPEN

Equivalent folders for Mac users

OPEN 

/ Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / steamapps / common / Football Manager 2024 / data / database / db / 2430 
 

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 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.

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 2024 on Xbox app), then “Manage” → “Files” tab → “Browse…” button.

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 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.

#"LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 781053 "Kobe Football Club 1970" ""
#"SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 781053 "Kobe FC 1970" ""

 

They call this team “Aries Tokyo”, even though the team already exists (786532). The 6 letters name is good.

 

This is what it looks like - what's wrong with it? 😕

- "STADIUM_NAME_CHANGE" 1300923 "Hunky Dorys Park" ""
- "STADIUM_NAME_CHANGE" 1300908 "Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium" ""
 

These should be removed. 1300923 hasn't been Hunky Dorys Park for a few years and both are correct in the DB using fmref.

Just moved to a new Macbook Air 15" M3 and immediately installed FM24 from Steam as well as moved my tactics, set pieces, etc. over. Runs well, but as I go to apply this must-have mod, I managed to find the 2400 folder under the db folder, deleted the files as instructed, but there is no 2430 folder. 

 

Is the Mac version from Steam not updated to 2430? On the start screen, it shows it as V24.4

 

Help!

Thanks,

OK, I'm doing a reinstall of Steam FM24 on my Macbook Air M3. After I installed this mod I suddenly could no longer load a save game from my Windows Laptop, which I was able to do with no problem until I added the name fix. I'm not blaming it on the name fix at this point (I used it in my Windows/PC game and I consider it a must have.)

I assumed it would be automatically updated via steam. Interestingly the version number on the start screen says 24.4

 

EDIT: and on the reinstall the 2430 folder is present. Time to reinstall your fix.

Not sure what file you've downloaded since the extracted files are all 1kb and all have ._ at the start of the filename. What program are you using to extract the download? I suggest Winrar.

Yes, but that file has the many files and folders shown in the main post's screenshots. I suggest you download it again and extract it, because what's in your screenshot is definitely not in this download 😕

Then you haven't installed it properly. Follow the steps in the video in the main post.

 

If that fails, can I please have screenshots of the locations you've installed the fix in?
