FM2020 Licensing and Real Name Fix File v2.3 for FM20.4.1 [released on 28/04/2020]
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 German and Japanese National teams don't call up real players and that the Bayern Munich and Borussia Mönchengladbach managers have fake names. 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
OPEN
Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Football Manager 2020\data\database\db\2040
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
OPEN
 / Users / username / Library / Application Support / Steam / SteamApps / common / Football Manager 2020 / data / database / db / 2040 
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 2040 folder:

dbc: https://i.imgur.com/je40Ajx.png
dbc/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/1FH8ABp.png
edt/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/aat5BqX.png
lnc: https://i.imgur.com/a87Z77C.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.

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
Nonetheless, you still need to apply the files. So, can you please answer the questions: Can I see screenshots of which lnc file(s) you've edited and where you've placed your editor data folder? Can I also see screenshots of your 2000, 2001 and 2010 dbc folders?


What do you mean by applying the files? Where to extract the RAR file then? I didn't edit any Inc file(s). Also I don't have 2000, 2001 and 2010 dbc folders.
It is possible. I found information in another site dedicated to fm mobile

Could you give me a link to this info please? I'd like to share it

According to the first screenshot in this post, you edited the club name changes lnc file.

I'm sorry but I'm not understanding what your issue is. If you've installed the file correctly, then it all should work well. Can you please read the installation instructions carefully and follow them? There are screenshots in the main post to display how each folder should look, use them as a guide and ideally give me screenshots of what they look like at your end
I have a question on changing the short club names of any club. I applied everything and the file works perfectly fine. =)

When I go into the "City. Club and Stadiums"-File the replacing of the #"CLUB with "CLUB is no problem, but then I tried to change the German short club names to their official club names, so that there is "1. FC Köln" instead of "Köln" in the League Table. At the start of a new game my change is in there, but if I save and load this career again, there is just "Köln" again and all my changes are gone.

So isn't it possible, to change some names by my own in the "City, Club and Stadiums"-File?

If you want to change club names already in this download, you need to use the editor to change it in the respective data file. Changes in the editor data file take priority over changes to the same entries in lnc files, so this is the correct way to go about it.

In this case, use the pre-game editor to load the FM20 Sortitoutsi Licenses Fix - German Club Name Changes.fmf file and then make the changes you want. Once you start a new game, these changes should be in there
Should we have deleted the player_fix on the 2010 folder?
Should we have deleted the player_fix on the 2010 folder?

No, I'd have mentioned it otherwise
Sure, read the last section of this page for guidance on how to do this

Had a look at this and tested it but doesn't work unfortuantely, even for new careers (in FM20 by the way).

Anything else you can think of?

Moved the previous conversation to this thread, since it's FM20 we're talking about. I'm afraid it does work if done correctly, even for new careers, so there must be something else which should be done from your end.

Can you upload the file containing the changes you've made and a screenshot of the folder it's placed in? This will help me spot what the issue could be.
Hi, I just noticed that the ''Trophée Kopa'' in my save is ''Kopa-Trophäe'' (I play in Italian). I would suggest to let the original French name or for italian to put

That's the German-language version of the award. In fact, the entries for the German version have an extra couple of "" which mean that the German language version has become the default version. If you remove them, this change is save-game compatible

Thanks for these, but I'd prefer to have the changes in English. Are the above in Bulgarian or Russian? I'll include them for that language at least

Actually is Bulgarian ,but it's good idea to include them on Russian language pack
is the new update 20.2.0 a new database version or game version? should this work fine with it if already installed?
So, 20.2.0 has a new folder called 'temporary within the 'lnc' folder

https://i.imgur.com/ZMKtXXg.jpg

Contains an lnc file that in turn contains following text:

"CLUB_NAME_CHANGE" 2247 "Hertha BSC" "German"

I dont even have 20.2.0 folder. The game says 20.2 on the main menu though

I simply can't believe how fast you released this update and that you already added the thing I reported just a couple of hours ago. WOW

It's no big deal, it literally only took me 20 seconds When a new official patch is released, I like to release a new version of this file so that people are up-to-date


Do we just follow the same process then? dlete the stuff in the folders even from the old version and should be okay?

Delete the dbc, edt and lnc folders, and replace them with the ones from the download, yes. Same goes for the editor data folder.
muss auch die player_fix.dat im 2010 ordner gelöscht werden?

Leave it there, don't change it.
Mediafire mirror plx

What's wrong with the current mirrors? In the (distant) past, mediafire cancelled my entire account for hosting this file, so it's not an option for me, I'm afraid.


Grateful thanks @mons
