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

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
Just manually removed the hashtag on a few obvious ones to see if it worked and it did! Nice one. Thanks for your help

Excellent - you can remove the hashtag wholesale by using the replace all function in Notepad. That way you'll be sure that the changes have been effected for all the clubs affected
Just request the changes that you like to be implemented like everybody else

Hi,
I´m wondering if there is a way to use this fix in spanish, for example the UEFA Champions League translated to spanish is Liga de Campeones de la UEFA, and if there isn´t any translation, i can help you to translate it to spanish if you are interested (im from Argentina).

Thank you.

If you want to submit Spanish language changes for future inclusion in the file, I'd add them gladly If you do, send them via PM in the code that they're in within the file and please send only the changes - don't edit the file itself as I'd have no way of finding them that way

Just added "League" to all the short names
For some reason the name change for Juventus does not work after the update from FM, even tried a fresh install and then making the changes, did not work.

Is this in an existing save game or a new career? Can I have a screenshot of your editor data folder?
After the update and new download of the files the German national Team has no real players in the squad? This is within a saved game. Do I just need to wait for the next International call ups as per the Japan team. Japan team has same issue?

Thank You. Have already re applied the fix just need to await a call up then.

Thanks Again
I'm not sure if it is this fix that's causing the problem or whether it is, somehow, clashing with an editor data file I'm using, but, after installing this fix, my new save has Inter Miami playing in '4.DEILD' which is a league in Iceland.

They are not physically playing in Iceland, obviously, but the league name shows as the one from Iceland.

I've started a new game using these files and checked with the editor and it doesn't seem like the issue you're facing is connecting with this file.

Are there any other teams in this division? Could be an error in competition renaming or team assigning in another file, particularly a Faroe Islands playable league one. "4. Deild" (not in Caps) is a Faroe competition in my files, and the Icelandic pyramid only goes down to the 3. Deild, in fact.

Yeah, there are other teams in the division. It is that whole level of the American pyramid. I will open the expansion file in the editor and have a look.

I did see in a separate thread on the si forum that someone else was having a problem with the file and the creator said it may just need verifying again.

I will let you know if that is the case.

Same for me, on my existing save game.

Make sure you download and re-apply the fix correctly. If you think they're fine, can I have screenshots of your dbc/permanent, edt/permanent and lnc folders?

That was quick! Everything looks in order there

And your editor data folder is fine too?
@sabahudin, everything looks perfectly in order there, I have no idea why it's not showing properly for you
