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.

Just checked, yup it's Data Update messing everything up.
Sorry didn't see your reply. I've only added Sortitoutsi based Real name fixes and Data Changes, when I launch without them everything is fine. When I enable them the problem occurs. Guys in Data Update also mentioned that their files do not change player's DOB It's a mystery.

Can I see a screenshot of your editor data folder?

I have no idea what is causing this issue. I've never heard of the guy and I certainly didn't edit him in any of my files.

Here's him in DB, he's one of the best attacking coaches in the game, he has a wrong DOB here as well.

If the issue is with the live update, best to take it up with them in their forum because I'm not really involved with that file at all, so don't know what the issue could be...
how do I change the colors of the nets? I want to change the network color of Valencia and Leicester.

I'm afraid I have no idea and it doesn't really have anything to do with this file either.
how do I change the names of English clubs?
I don't like to see "Man City" or "Man utd" or "Wolves" etc ...

Either by using lnc files, by using the code used for all the other clubs, which works in the middle of save games.

Or by creating an editor data file making the changes you'd like to have, by using the pre-game editor
So how do I find these club references/code to be able to change?

Hello. I have installed the licensing and real names fix files but i seem to be having an issue regarding the real player names of the Germany, Japan etc national teams. All the other changes seem to be working perfectly fine. And yes i've waited until the next call up for the national teams and it is still not working. And yes i have checked it several times that the whole installation process was the correct one. How can this issue be solved?

Thanx in advance

And did you start the new game with the March official transfer update or before?
Is there a way to have the award names all in English? For example t-online.de Fußball-Bundesliga - Spieler des Tages to be t-online.de Bundesliga Player Of The Week?

Which link is that? There is one hosted on this site, one on Deposit Files, one on uploaded.net and another on Mega. All 4 work for me, so the issue must be at your end.
The file you say to download is not working.do you mean to download the licensing and real names v2,3 released on 28/04? U try this and as i said every time i start new game jebra name is .

I'm not sure what you're saying.

Are you saying that you cannot download the file? Or that the file is not working properly?

In either instance, that is not the case. If you're getting Juventus as Zebre, then you need to make sure the editor data files are installed correctly. Can you give me a screenshot of your editor data folder?

The more info you give me, the more likely I am to be able to help you. "This link is dead.not working" gives me no information whatsoever. Help me to help you.
As i said before i have fm20 via Microsoft' store game pass.i download the real name file and replace all files and editor data.but every time i started new game the juventus name not see.all other fix name working.After i create new game and search in the files i see that zebra files generated again.That is i tried yo say.

You never actually mentioned before that you were using Microsoft Gamepass, no I'm not a mind-reader

Use this download if you're playing with Gamepass
