FM2020 Licensing and Real Name Fix File v1.2 for FM20 [released on 03/12/2019]
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 FM Touch or 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 2020 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 Japanese National teams don't call up real players and that the Borussia Mönchengladbach manager has a fake name. 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 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. 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 2020\data\database\db\2000
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2020\data\database\db\2001
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2020\data\database\db\2010
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

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

Mac
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2020 / data / database / db / 2000 
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2020 / data / database / db / 2001 
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2020 / data / database / db / 2010 
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.

Slightly more detail in this post




OPEN
sdcard\Android\data\com.sega.soccer.champions\files\installed\data\database\db\2000
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders
OPEN

DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders
OPEN
sdcard\Android\data\com.sega.soccer.champions\files\installed\data\database\db\2010
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

Club names are only changed on Android if you effect the workaround in this post.




[b]OPEN
appdata-local-packages-SportsInteractive(with a lot of random numbers)-Localcache-Local-Microsoft-WriteablePackageRoot-data\database\db\2000
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders
OPEN
appdata-local-packages-SportsInteractive(with a lot of random numbers)-Localcache-Local-Microsoft-WriteablePackageRoot-data\database\db\2001

OPEN
appdata-local-packages-SportsInteractive(with a lot of random numbers)-Localcache-Local-Microsoft-WriteablePackageRoot-data\database\db\2010
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders



[u]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 2000, 2001 and 2010 folders:

dbc: https://i.imgur.com/dfTgu9C.png
dbc/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/I2Dx39F.png
edt/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/G7qlwMU.png
lnc: https://i.imgur.com/U5uH3z2.png

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

STEP 5
PASTE to
\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\editor data

\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\\GAMEPASS\editor data



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 2020’


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 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.

Do you know how to sort out the Brazilian clubs three letter names?

Yes, make sure the dbc/permanent folder in 1210 is the same as the one in the screenshot in the main post. Also make sure it remains the same when SI release a patch/hotfix as they sometimes recreate files that this download deletes.
With the full game coming out at midnight tonight, when could we expect the updated files to install prior to starting a new game? This is my first year using this and I have loved it in beta. Great work!

As always, I endeavour to get the file out as quickly as possible, hopefully even tonight

i's out it;s out

the advantage to be in Mexico is that for me it;s only 2:37pm still the rest of the day ahead to play.
Didn't download the beta, but just followed these steps on the official release version. Is there gonna be an update to this that I'll have to redo or will this be compatible with the official version?
Up the tricky reds x
that feeling when the game's already out but you can't play because you're waiting for real name fixes!

Sorry if this is the wrong thread to ask but does anyone on Mac know where to find/put the graphics folder this year to add kits/faces/logos? I've loaded up the game but no Football Manager 2020 folder is coming up in my Documents folder

Won't the current fix do?

They're in the Library now.

Open Finder, select go from the top menu and hold down option. The library should show. Then go to Application Support/> Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2020
Fill your boots, lads (and lasses!) - file's out! The new version contains a handful of new award, club and competition name changes, as well as a substantial reworking of the Juventus kits to bring them in line with reality.
There is no new 'db' folder created for the full version of the game. The latest folder is 2010. So, I hope that the real name fix for last beta patch might work fine. Need to check.

The convention used in this file is for the long name to be the name with the sponsor, while the short name is the one used colloquially.

The old files would've worked, broadly speaking, but might as well used the latest files, no?
does this include the German national team fix?
Confirming that the fix for last beta patch works fine. please refer screenshot for proof.
