FM2020 Licensing and Real Name Fix File v2.0 for FM20.3.0 [released on 20/02/2020]
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
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2020\data\database\db\2030
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
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2020 / data / database / db / 2030 
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

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, 2010 and 2030 folders:

dbc: https://i.imgur.com/0fVC763.png
dbc/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/7RK8INx.png
edt/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/XVFdLYA.png
lnc: https://i.imgur.com/V4Xap3H.png

STEP 4:
COPY the 8 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.

Make sure the edt/permanent and lnc folders in the 2000, 2001 and 2010 folders are exactly as per the screenshots in the main post

You will probably have some extra files in there (which this download removes). Applying this download should see Sarri's name revert back to normal

If not, give me screenshots of the above folders so I can guide you

I've downloaded the latest update and I just reapplied the files, but I'm still not seeing Sarri. I have the files in order and I didn't screenshot everything, but I did see this "player_fix" file and I don't know where it's coming from:

https://imgur.com/aZWc7iC

I wasn't sure whether deleting that would solve the issue or just give me a bigger problem. Thanks for the help and hard work!

NOTE: I wanted to make clear that this is an existing save. I just assumed that Sarri's name would be fixable because it worked with Marco Rose, but if that isn't possible here, I understand.

Leave the player_fix file there.

The Sarri name change should be save game compatible, so no worries.

Can I see inside those folders I mentioned pls?

That all looks perfectly fine so far.

How about your dbc/permanent folders? Have you started a new game or is this in an existing save? I ask so I can provide a tailored solution

I believe that the DBC/PERM folders are there, no?

This is an existing save, by the way. If it helps, I did start a new save to dig around the full release database and the Sarri name was fixed there. It’s just the existing save that’s troubling me.

No just the edt/permanent ones were there.

Add this line in any of your lnc files:
"CHANGE_PLAYER_NAME" 7981826 "Maurizio" "" "Sarri"

However, I suspect that all the Juventus staff will still have the wrong name as a result of not applying this fix before starting a new game.

Made the change, but it didn't seem to work. Should I add it to all INC folders?

And yes, it is all of the Juve staff. I didn't notice that because I haven't been playing in Serie A. I'm too deep into my save now to really let it ruin anything for me. However, fixes for Agnelli and some key staff would be nice, if possible, but not necessary.

Thanks so much!

Put it in all 3 of the 2000, 2001 and 2010 folders I'm not 100% sure this would work tbh

I'm sorry, but I don't have the time to do all. If somebody's willing to provide the respective fixes, I'd be more than happy to add them to the files, but there's a fix in there already tbh...

Awesome! That worked.

And I totally understand that it's timely; I could do it myself for what I need. How do I find the ID # for presidents and directors? Or could I find the needed info by accessing the Juventus fix .config file?

I'm glad to hear that!

Load the pre-game editor (with the correct dbc files in place), which will give the correct names instead of the fake ones. You will then be able to say that person x has UID 12345678 and correct name John Smith, person y has UID 987654 and correct name Tony Jones, etc etc

Perfect! This works! I've only done Agnelli so far, just to try it out, but it is working. I'll do the others as I need/want/can.

Would this possibly work for the stadium as well?

For some reason, this has not worked for the stadium in my games and necessitates an editor data file to solve. Nothing wrong with giving it a go yourself too

Yeah, not working for me either, unfortunately. Strange how that works out. Oh well. I appreciate all of the help. I mainly wanted to get the Sarri change working, along with Agnelli, and some key staff. Those two were bothering me the most!
Colours yes but not designs, no.

Great - can you let me in on how I do this?

Sure, read the last section of this page for guidance on how to do this
Hi, everything seems fine except the club names for me. Juventus are Zebra, R.Madrid and A.Madrid ect. Any work around for this? I've started a new game.
Should add that I'm happy to restart another game. The changes didn't work after I added the files and started a new game.

Can I have a screenshot of your editor data folder and of your 2010/dbc folder?
Where is best to upload to?

That looks fine. What about your editor data folder?
Scroll down on that page.
Scroll down on that page.

Didn't see it All looks fine

So start a new game now and tell me what happens
I have already done that but I'll do it again. Give me 5 mins.

I've found the issue now, actually Time to go to bed methinks.

You have an editor data folder inside the actual editor data folder. This is not correct. The .fmf files should be in the first editor data folder; anything in a sub-folder within it is ignored when starting a new game, hence why you're not getting the club name changes

No change, few pics in the link.

Ah I see, I'll try that. Cheers mons
That may also help on a graphic issue I'm having.

On the other hand, anything within sub-folders in the graphics folder is captured by the game. If you need help, drop me a PM so we don't clog this thread on unrelated matters
