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.

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.

Returned from the army and noticed 2 things about greek comps. SuperLeague 1 and SuperLeague 2 is shown with the small name in fixture tab and club overview (as SL1 and SL2). Also Kýpello Elládos is missing a tone (in letter ''a''. The rest are simply the best

I've fixed the Greek Cup name

If not SL1 and SL2, what would you recommend instead?

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.

Sorry I'm only replying to this now - managed to get it working properly, must have been my own mistake.

Works fine on FMT on Android in case anyone's wondering

I guess full name on both short and long would be good since there are no sponsorships to make a shortcut of the name.

Lovely stuff. All fixed for the next version
Is it possible for someone to upload/send me the android save game compatible file please as attempting to make the required changes on my tablet is proving troublesome. Thanks in advance

Hey Guys, maybe you already spoke about it here. The Licence Fix works perfectly except one thing – the fucking Zebra/Juventus name. Where's the problem? How can I fix it?

Have the fix in place before starting a new game. If not, you need to make sure the files are installed in the right folder AND do the workaround in the first post
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 1301414 "Coca-Cola Supercup""

Not sure if keep this short name though, maybe change ''Supercoppa'' in ''Supercup''? :
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 1301414 "Supercup" ""


This is the post where they announced the new name for the match that will be played between Juventus and Lazio:

@mons

FM 2020 received a patch today and I just noticed that Windows Explorer's very recent "date modified" date suggest something in the \db\2010\ folder has changed today.

Do we need a new version of the Real Names Fix or are we good to proceed?
Thanks for that @Smallville2.0, will fix it in the next version.

@Tommy Hughes, as you're the only person who has pointed it out, I'm going to assume there haven't been major changes and so you can use the current files without any problems. I'll have a look when I get home later tonight and release a new version if need be
Can you please explain to me or send me a link for iPad version installation?

I'm afraid I don't have any visibility on the iOS installation instructions. Perhaps if someone has managed to make it work, s/he could provide a guide on how to do so...

Hi @mons , the change is to a file called "canada.lnc". Would you be so kind as to confirm if a change has needed to be done later please? Much appreciated and Happy Holidays
@Tommy Hughes and @Lobini and everyone else, I've released a new version of the file. The main change in the official patch is the addition of an all folder within lnc which includes some licensing fixes to Canadian teams and leagues. I have added the handful of submissions since the previous release last week as well
Hi everyone. Forgive me if this has already been adressed somewhere.
I've got an issue in my current save. It seems like all non-international players in Germany have been turned into greyed players. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I'm not sure why you've quoted a post from page 16 without any context which was resolved later in the same page
In Kosovo, Raiffeisen Superliga should be changed to IPKO Superliga
What about some argentinians teams names like Estudiantes who are changed by canadians names...? (Forge FC in this case)
"Rien de ce qui vaut le coup sur cette Terre ne s'obtient sans mérite"

Never heard of this before

Can you give me screenshots of the issue in-game, and also of your editor data folder?
