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
sdcard\Android\data\com.sega.soccer.champions\files\installed\data\database\db\2001
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.

https://i.imgur.com/u8XTmoc.png



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.

Does this work with Football Manager 2020 Competition Colour Fix?
Since the long names in Austria compared to the rest of the world were a thorn in my side, I shortened them in this file. For now, only the first two leagues and their youth teams were made. In the future I will add more leagues.

In addition, with this file you can remove the LNC entries of RB Salzburg, these are no longer needed.

im austrian and i dont know what "Fussballclub Red Bull Salzburg Juniors" should be !? the 2nd team of Red Bull Salzburg is the "FC Liefering" in the 2nd Austrian League. They are not allowed to promote. Same as LASK Linz. Their 2nd team is "FC Juniors OÖ". This should be fixed.

I know, that was the old 2nd team already Red Bull and that is just in the LNC available. But does not matter anyway.

Sorry, this passed me by. No idea what that file is There's a similarly named file in my download, does that not work for you?
A question. Is it already advisable to use this FIX or is it better to wait a bit? Why do I see that above continue to put name options.
A question. Is it already advisable to use this FIX or is it better to wait a bit? Yes, I don't envisage massive changes at this stage Why do I see that above continue to put name options. I'm sorry, I have no idea what that means

With the greatest of respects, how am I supposed to know what's wrong with somebody else's file from another site?

I have a similar file just for European competitions:

https://sortitoutsi.net/thumbnails/400x300/uploads/images/klCxU4nkpK3USDy454lZMmT6lcGEN1jX.png

It could be that some of my changes overwrite those in that other file, but I couldn't possibly tell...

"
This is a BETA version. Some parts may not work perfectly yet. Tell us and we will solve it as soon as you can...."

Does this mean that it is missing?

Ah, I see - I clean forgot that text in the main post! I've removed it now, thanks for the heads-up

File can now be considered fully stable, though I will be certainly making further edits whenever they are spotted. But that's no reason to hold off starting a new game
Does this work with the hotfix that was just bought out? We are now on FM20 20.1.3?

No need to re-apply anything this time, no. If you had the version of the file released yesterday, you should be fine

I had thought it was a much larger file than it actually was - I've changed them all in my files.

Can I ask for help with the below Austrian competitions? I'm guessing you'd know how they'd be named alongside the lines of the existing competitions...

Didn't the Ligue 1 change to something "uber eats"?
I cant open the downloaded file after downloading? Deleted relevant files in 2000, 2001, and 2010, but I cant open up the Licensing and Real Name Fix file

Naturally. Next I'll do the 3 or rather 5 Regionalligen and the 9 Landesligen anyway.

That's as from next year

You need to use Winrar to open this download

That would be great If possible, please have it in a standalone file rather than adding onto the existing Competitions and other Fixes.lnc file
Does anybody know how I change the name of the continent Oceania the same way we change the name of clubs and competitions?
Does anybody know how I change the name of the continent Oceania the same way we change the name of clubs and competitions?

As far as I know, the only way this can be done is through the editor and not through lnc files.
Sorry if I am being thick, I have downloaded the new name changes but I cannot find how or where to start database 20.1.3? Steam is up to date?

There is no database 20.1.3. That's just the game version. The database has remained unchanged since yesterday's release. You're free to start your career
@moms As I have bought the game today, may i delete the 2000 and 2001 folders and remain just the 2010?

Apply this fix to all folders, just in case

The database was changed today due to a massive bug which affected players attributes and hidden mentality. That is what the hot fix was and they called it 20.1.3.

The database was not touched at all. It's just that they solved the issue with generating hidden mental attributes with a more even spread, but the database itself was not touched
Ok thanks for the reply and knowledge!
anyone can help me??? i didnt fix juventus still shown zebre it disturbs
anyone can help me??? i didnt fix juventus still shown zebre it disturbs

Make sure that the dbc and dbc/permanent folders in 2000, 2001 and 2010 are as indicated in the respective screenshots in the main post, and that the FM20 Sortitoutsi Licenses Fix - Juventus fixes.fmf file is in your editor data folder. You will need to start a new game.

If you think all is in order but it's still not working, then please give me screenshots of the above folder.
