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

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.

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.

Is here anyone who can help?

How can i change a Club Name in an existing Savegame??? There is no way with In Game Editor and also no way with FMRTE ...

I want to change the Name of Zebre to Juventus F.C

I have installed the Real Name fix... but Savegame started before ...

Can you please stop posting in the FM19 thread? I'm moved it to here - this is an FM20 issue.

As already explained, twice, this is not possible.

What am I supposed to be seeing?

Have you tried using the SS kit files that I sent you? They work even without this fix installed.


ASAP, my friend.

Hi, sorry to ask this question if this has already been answered, I can see in the first post that for Touch versions of the game there is a work around. Is there anything that can be done to get this working on the iPad version?
Hi,

It's the first year I have some problems with the installation of the real name fix. I looked trough the comments but didn't find any solution.
I play the game in dutch language, can that be a problem with the files?

I've added some print screens with more information. As you can see, can't select any files in the editor-menu.

Do you know what the problem could be?
Thanks!

Does this link help at all? Sorry, I only play this on my PC so I can't really help much more beyond this...

I'm sorry, but I don't really know what the bit in Dutch in your first screenshot means. Could you translate?

a) Please make sure your dbc/permanent, edc/permanent and lnc folders look exactly like the ones in the screenshots in the opening post
b) There is no competition called Silver League in these files. It is most probably a file you have downloaded separately which has got nothing to do with this download. Can I have a screenshot of your editor data file?
Hello guys! I can't delete the folders and can't copy the new ones, I become a message that I need administrator rights although I am the administrator on my PC... This never happend to me before. Do you have an idea what this could be?

Try restarting your PC and see if it works then. If not, instead of deleting the folder, delete the current contents and put the ones from this download in their place.

I've tried the restart or delete the folders manually but I get the same message and also when I try to copy the new folders/files...

It seems to be an issue with your User Account settings possibly, but as it's an issue with your PC and not these files, I don't really feel qualified to comment sorry
Hi again mons, bit of trouble once again with the latest update and associated name changes. Followed everything to the letter, so now have Juventus, Betis, Benfica etc again, which is great. Only issue seems to be with Juventus. I have Zebre Stadium rather than Allianz Stadium and for some reason the kits aren't shown anymore. Other Italian team kits are. I've removed all hashtags from all City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc files from folders 2000, 2001, 2010, 2030 and 2040.

Playing on Mac btw

Thanks for your help!

Make sure the editor data files are in the correct place - can I have a screenshot of them?

You needed to have that in place before starting a new game; I'm afraid lnc files won't solve the issue.
Sorry, first screen shot didn't show the folders...

The other stadium name changes seem to have worked though.... Udinese, for example.

They're in the right place. Also, change your graphics folder to lowercase instead of starting with a capital letter

Yes, this is a specific issue with Juventus' stadium name not being changeable with an lnc file. Stadium name changes are otherwise possible, even in the middle of a save-game.

Thanks, changed the graphics folder to lower case... so no fix possible for Zebre Stadium?

Not to my knowledge, once a save game has started
