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.

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.

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?


I did the steps again and now everything works fine.
No idea what i did wrong the first time.

Thanks a lot for your work!
I've installed the fix as per the instructions but the Juventus logo is wrong. It looks like what I imagine would be the generic Zebre one (just got the game). The name is right though, as is the stadium name and the Champions League name, it's just the Juve logo. Can I fix that?

This file does not include any graphics at all, including the Juventus logo. You'll have to download it as part of a logopack, available here for download
Ah! Thanks for the clarification.
Just did all the process today and works fine. The only thing is, the teams still have the wrong logos.

Read 2 posts above yours. This download does not contain any graphics.
Any idea why this isn't working? All the other competitions seem to be fine, but this is a big one for me. "Premier Division" always makes me feel queasy.

It's either not installed correctly, or you've got some other files interfering with it.

Can I have screenshots of your 2040/lnc folder and also of your editor data folder please?

2040 lnc files look fine, as does the editor data folder.

When did you start the game? Was it with the 20.4 database or was it prior to that? Did you have any other editor data files in place when you started it? Can I ask what the LeagueDataUpdates file is too?

Came with the Level 11 database I have active. I think I started with the 20.4 database too - it was certainly up to date and the game was started on 19th March...

Can you send the file over? If the creator changed the name in there, then those changes take precedence over those made by my file

Any news on install the names fix package on Ipad?

I'll have a look at it later when I get home

No.. read all 35 pages.. trying to know if anyone has succeeded on other way.

As mentioned earlier, my suspicion was corrected that whoever created the file manually changed the full name of the Premier League to Premier Division for whatever reason, so you're going to have to stay with it...

Just a quick question

Didn't know where to post this but surely I can get a quick answer here

Does anybody know how many editor files you can use in (custom) game

Previous games was about 65 and anymore the game would crash

answers please, thanks in advance?

Not sure it's got anything to do with this download

That limit you mention was removed a couple of FM versions back. Theoretically, there are no limits, but the more editor data files you have, the more likely it is that one of them will corrupt your save game.
Cheers Mons

Reason I posted here was due to around 8 files coming from this download

Not played since FM2016 but many thanks :

I think it was FM17 or FM18 when the editor data file limit was removed actually iirc, yeah.

I'm afraid not. Perhaps @kingrobbo can confirm, but I'm not sure editing that field is a possibility even if using an in-game editor.

Thought so.

Sorry @Luke Hearn, what you're aiming for is just not possible. That's one of the perils of using editor data files, you just can't know all the changes done by the creator. If this is a file which has been in place for many years, it may be worth having a word with him to suggest that this edit is not included in next year's edition.

Edit: As per kingrobbo's post below, it looks like it may be possible only if you have enabled the use of the in-game editor before starting a new game and if you purchase said editor.
