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
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\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.
Discussion
In the full version, you fix makes some graphics go shadow, (example: main screen, when the manager is at the locker room)
is there a fix?

I have no idea what you mean. If you are using a custom skin, either use a default one or update your existing skin.
Can you change this

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 61 "Ledman LigaPro" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 61 "LigaPro" ""

It is now

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 61 "LigaPro" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 61 "LigaPro" ""
Hi mons, after update hotfix 20.1.4, in folder 2010 i have extra file called "player_fix.dat". Should i delete it too when apply this file?

Nope, leave it there.
The new quick update introduced a file in the 2010 db folder: player_fix.dat

Shall we leave it there or delete it?

EDIT: Sorry I did not see the previous posts. Never mind

That's something to take up with the people who take care of the Live Update, and it's got nothing to do with this download.

As far as I can tell, the live update is for FM19, not FM20, so that may be the cause of it
Hi @mons - thanks for this fix, it's awesome. Sorry if I've missed this post somewhere above, but do these changes affect the hot fixes that are being released and downloaded? i.e. does it stop the match engine improvements etc.?

Apologies if this is a stupid question!

These files only change the way names are displayed (i.e. cosmetically) and do not affect and influence the internal workings of the game
I would like to change the abbreviation Man Utd to full Manchester United in my running save. Is this still possible or is this handled by the editor data files and it will only work via the FM Editor and with a new save?
Already bought the In-Game Editor but can't seem to change it from there?

All you would need to do is add the below line to the Competitions and other Fixes.lnc files

"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 680 "Manchester United" ""

This should be save-game compatible but will however mean that their nickname is lost.
Thanks mons!
Do I need to edit this file in every directory or only in the latest directory (\database\db\2010\lnc)
Thanks mons!

I suspect the last one should be enough, but best to do it in all of them

Actually, it would be better if you created an lnc file just for that change. Because otherwise, future versions of this download would delete it and you'd have to do it again every time
Is there any way to make this work on ios?

hello mons, i modified the italian serie d and italian eccellenza names: because the D. in the name is for "Dilettantistica" (amateur) and is used only for a team in the italian semipro league (Serie D and other)

after the promotion in Serie C, professional league, the D is deleted, an example: Palermo SSD after promotion in Serie C renamed Palermo SS

i modified all the d, after this if you want i link my job.

I understand what you mean, but at this point in time, the D is in the clubs' names, so I won't be removing it for the time being. It's certainly something to keep in mind for when I'm a bit less busy, though

It worked. Only changed the file in the 2010 folder.
I edited City, Club and Stadium Names.Inc

Good to hear. Then make a mental note to add it again when a new version of this file is released
Hello everybody,

I have a problem with this FM2020 Licensing and Real Name Fix files. All is perfect except for the brazilian clubs : it doesn't fix their names.
It's strange but all graphic adds work too (logos and kits)... .... except for brazilian clubs !!
I can't find the solution. Somebody has an idea ?

Thanks in advance.

Did you apply the file before starting a new game? If yes and it's still not working, can I have a screenshot of your dbc/permanent folders?
@mons Could you fix the european colors competition?

An earlier version of this file included those competition colours, or ones very close to them, but it meant that the Metallic logos didn't display so well, so I changed them around...

What do you mean by "FM20 player update download"?
Sorry - the player update.
the file that contains information to change where a player is playing, where a manager is managing etc - data update file?
