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

OPEN

DELETE 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 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.
Discussion
Think that's sorted it, I will confirm in a bit.

Does this update work with hotfixes? with 20.1.3 and 20.1.4 being released already, when i start a new game, the database dropdown box in the top right corner only contains 20.1.0 which is the original database. I have no options of picking 20.1.4.

The version of the database will remain 20.1.0 till SI release the winter transfer update. The game version is something completely different and will be updated from time to time when SI releases patches or hotfixes. It is currently 20.1.4 and any future changes to the game version will not affect the database version.

In effect, if your game version is 20.1.4 and your database version is 20.1.0, you're perfectly in order.

Hope this clarifies

When the main menu and your manager avatar is displayed before loading your save game, it's in white in the bottom left.
New version of this file is out, adding changes proposed since the release of v1.0.
Where can I see the changes? I already started a save on 1.0.

I think this is still the prev verion (18/11 I guess)
Some little fixes yet.

#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 106363 "Austria Lustenau Amateure" ""
#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 16009426 "Fußball Akademie Rapid Wien" ""

And I saw that 2nd teams still do not work.

This is about the teams:
SK Rapid Wien II
SK Sturm Graz II
Wolfsberg AC II
SKN St. Pölten II
SCR Altach Juniors
SV Mattersburg Amateure
FC Admira Juniors
FC Wacker Innsbruck II
SC Austria Lustenau II

Maybe this is an SI problem?

As explained in the installation instructions and in the main post, changes to Brazilian club names will unfortunately only take effect upon starting a new game. If you are starting a new game and the issue is still occurring, could you upload screenshots your 2000, 2001 and 2010 dbc/permanent folders?

Download and apply these files. I don't believe that particular fix is save-game compatible, though I stand to be corrected.

As I suspected, this download hasn't been installed correctly. You need to delete the existing dbc, edt and lnc folders, then place the ones from this download instead. Merging them won't work.
