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.

Are there any plans to update CA Bragantino to Red Bull Bragantino? They went through a merger in 2019 when CA Bragantino merged with Red Bull Brazil, becoming Red Bull Bragantino, they ended up winning the Serie B and will be in Serie A in 2020.

Can't find any updates online, as thought it would be a common change considering they are now in Brazil's top flight.

I hadn't heard about it before tbh. I'll see to it in time for the next release of this file
Hi there! first of all thank you for all the work you put in these! I have a question (am on PC). I have downloaded this pack and followed every step to the letter however some of the changes do not seem to apply. For example the changes like in your screenshot do not seem to apply. Juventus is changed but is not Juventus FC. The logo is also not loaded. All other names remained the same and not changed as in your screenshot (eg. U.S. Sassuolo Calcio). The cups are correct and the league names also loaded. I do not know where I did the mistake. You have an idea? Thanks in advance!

EDIT: This is when loading a new game and applying the 8 editor files in the advanced setup

This file does not add any logos, first of all - you have to download them from elsewhere

Secondly, can I have a screenshot of your editor data folder? What about Spanish club names? Do you see Osasuna and Real Betis? Or Real Hispalis and whatever Osasuna's fake name is?
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 5260948"Liga BetPlay Dimayor" "
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 5260950 "Torneo BetPlay Dimayor" "

"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 5260948 "Liga BetPlay" "

Righhhhhht got it! So the short names in the league still show the same and when I go on the club info it shows the correct names! I was a bit confused since I saw the screenshots and assumed the logos were also in there. Thanks for that quick reply. I think you also have a logo pack here right? Will go search for it!
Should I delete the 'player_fix.dat file in the 2010 folder?

Use Winrar to open the file.
I can only see the name change but not the tournament names or real badges
I can only see the name change but not the tournament names or real badges

a) There are logopacks to get real badges. This file does not contain any real badges.
b) Make sure you read the installation instructions properly. If you're confident you've installed them correctly, please upload screenshots of the folders in which you've placed the files you've downloaded.
When i said badges i ment like trophys and like the right names on the leagues (my bad for not being specifik)
How can i send screenshots?

Upload them on imgur or somewhere similar.

I can't really help unless I know what exactly you're talking about mate...

Implemented the folders into FM2020 fine. However the game feels so slow an in depth these days i'm gonna try FM Touch.

I don't see the same files in the folders, is it possible to have the real names in Touch?

The dbc, edt and lnc folders should still work, but to get the club name changes you'll have to do the workaround in the first post.

I tried playing Touch last night and the game is so different interface wise that I just backed out, haha. Think i'll persevere with the PC version, I still enjoy playing it. Meh.

Cheers.

Hi, just a quick question. Noticed that the english premier league clubs just goes by the name Arsenal, Chelsea and so on. Shouldn't they be named Arsenal FC, Chelsea FC like they were in previous version of this file?

Thanks!

I never made any changes to any English club names in this file other than Newport Co's short name which I renamed to Newport, so not sure where you're getting that info from

Ok, so according to this file,or should i say when you've installed this file, they're named just Arsenal and Chelsea etc..? Just want to know if i've messed something up when installing this file...

I'm not on my PC so I don't know if the default names are Arsenal and Chelsea or Arsenal FC and Chelsea FC to be honest. I don't believe it's the latter, but I could be wrong.

If you want to know if the files are installed correctly, start a new game and check if the items which have screenshots in the opening post have the same names
The long names with Arsenal and Chelsea are indeed the same as the short names..maybe this could use an update?

It's the same across the English league, though - I don't see a need to change it tbh.
Hello Mons, and first of all thank you for the fantastic work you and "your teams" have done, it's really good work.

However, I have a problem with changing the short names of the clubs that don't seem to work in game. I tried several times to solve the problem without success, either by using the lnc files (by uncommenting the "CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" command) or by selecting the Club Name Changes.fmf database with and without the other provided databases. Note that the other databases work perfectly.

My opinion is that the short club names are overloaded somewhere ... but I can't figure out where. If you have an idea, I'll take it!

Have a nice day

Some things to keep in mind:
a) Changes to the Club Name Changes.fmf file will only work if you start a new game.
b) Any changes made to the lnc file to entries which already have changes made in the fmf file will not be taken into consideration, as the changes in the fmf file will take precedence.

Now, if you tell me exactly what change(s) you're trying to make and whether it's in a new or existing save game, I can tell you if it falls under either of the above category

Thank you for your answer.

I want to create a new game, that's why I first used the *.fmf by activating the Club Name Changes.fmf (and only this one) when creating my game but without success. If I take an example, the short name 'Olympique de Marseille' remained 'OM' instead of 'Marseille'.

I then modified the lncs by uncommenting the "CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" command as you explained in your first post and by not activating the *.fmf databases in order not to overload. Again, 'OM' instead of 'Marseille'.

The worst thing is that the other databases like the media database or the Juventus database work perfectly.

Can I see screenshots of the respective sections of your modified fmf and lnc files? You can attach them as well if you want, but I won't see them till I get home from work later this evening so screenshots may help me get there quicker
