FM2020 Licensing and Real Name Fix File v0.4 for FM20 beta [released on 14/11/2019]
This is a BETA release. Some parts may not work perfectly just yet. Tell us and we'll fix it as soon as we can

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 Bayern 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 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

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

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

DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders[/spoiler]


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 and 2001 folders:

dbc: https://i.imgur.com/kOup4ya.png
dbc/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/RZEuRyB.png
edt/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/G7qlwMU.png
lnc: https://i.imgur.com/U5uH3z2.png

STEP 4:
COPY the x 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.
Discussion
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 129562 "TOTOLOTEK Puchar Polski" ""

Can you change this in

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 129562 "Totolotek Puchar Polski" ""

Totolotek It is not capitalized.
#Liechtenstein
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 98015063 "FL1 Aktiv-Cup" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 98015063 "FL1 Aktiv-Cup" ""

#Switzerland
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 98015063 "FL1 Liechtensteiner Cupsieger" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 98015063 "Liechtensteiner Cupsieger" ""

This competition is there twice in the file. One needs to be removed or at least be the same.


#Switzerland
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 98015063 "FL1 Aktiv-Cup" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 98015063 "FL1 Aktiv-Cup" ""

this is the right one


The highest level of Ukraine has also been given a Name change in this Favbet Ліги (this is Cyrillic script). Only I don't know how to write this in Western script

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 5314301 "Ukrayinska Premier-Liha" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 5314301 "UPL" ""


Is there anyone who does know in Western writing what it needs to be changed into?

I have the info here and you can also see the new logo with the sponsor name

https://upl.ua/ua/pages/logo
Any chance you can revert the club names instead of add Town, City, United. Some teams you've dine and some haven't. I don't think it was necessary to add the full name.

or simply just use the Ukraine name (this is also the case for some bulgarian leagues):

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 5314301 "Favbet Ліги" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 5314301 "UPL" ""

Thanks for those @egbertjan and @Qvordrup

Not sure what you mean - what clubs did you have in mind? The only English club I've edited in this file is Newport Co > Newport (based on feedback in this thread's equivalent a couple of years back iirc) and it doesn't seem to fall within the category you mention
Super pumped to add this to my unpack list for the new season. First time I'm trying to set up this particular mod, so I have a quick (and maybe silly) question on these mod files. I noted this comes with a caveat:

"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."

If I install the files say, today (which I plan on) and start a new save, everything should be smooth sailing for now. My question then is, after reapplying the file when changes are made to the game, will I need to start a new save every time? Or just update the existing files in the editor data and database subfolders?

Thanks for your help!

My question then is, after reapplying the file when changes are made to the game, will I need to start a new save every time? From one version to another of this file, a handful of (relatively minor) club name changes are usually added. These changes will not take place in your save game and will need a new game to be started, but you do not need to start a new game otherwise. Or just update the existing files in the editor data and database subfolders? This should be fine

Thanks for your help!

As per the above


That's fantastic. Thanks for the quick response - have a great day!
I've just downloaded and installed the latest version of the update, and Juventus are still called Zebre, Beits are still Real Hispalis, and so on. The competition names are correct though.

Do I have to update the file after yesterday's beta update?
@Thewes, please remember to avoid editing your posts and instead make a new one. Once I've read your original post, I have no way of knowing you've edited. I was lucky I spotted it, I might not be as lucky next time round and your good work will be lost

@Vantezzle, I hadn't even realized a beta update has been released. Yes, please re-install the files. It's a 1 MB file and it's not that hard to install it, make it a habit to install this file again after every update, just in case
Gotcha! Thanks.
Have you started a new career?


Yeah I have, each time I've re-installed.

Sorry, I should have clarified that in the beginning.

Any ideas?

Then it looks like you may not have installed the dbc folders correctly. Can I have screenshots of your dbc AND dbc/permanent folder in the 2000 and 2001 folders?
can you fix these??
some awards doesn't match with competition name, dan Juventus U23 short name like, still Zebra??

I'll have a look at that award, but it's already in the Awards.lnc file

As for the Zebra U23, this issue was solved in v0.2 of the file, but it needs to be in place before starting a new game.
In Greece from this year is ''Superleague 1 > SuperLeague 2 > FootballLeague > G' Ethniki > each's region first amateur league''. But it isnt just a rename but a whole new league that was created. In my save it is ''SuperLeague > Football League > G' Ethniki > D' Ethniki > each's region first amateur league'' which is incorrect since D' Ethniki stopped existing since 2013. To avoid confusion superleague 1 is the first tier, superleague 2 is second tier, football league is third tier and g' ethniki (even though g' means third lol) is fourth tier.
Amazing job as always mate
Please note that Israel Premier League isn’t called Ligat Japanika anymore
The new name is Tel Aviv Stock Exchange League

Thanks for the effort you put in these files

This is one of the things I have in my to-do file, but which I cannot do until I get my hands on the FM20 editor and see how exactly it's been implemented in-game and what the UIDs are. If you can assist with the new UID's, I'd be grateful. These changes would be save-game compatible anyway, so it's just a question of waiting the 11 days till FM20 comes out anyway

and start the new game again, but it's still Euro cup award, First Division (should be La liga) awards
Can you add this to the list of Dutch stadion names

Unfortunately i have zero experience. The only thing i know how to do is turn on the id on my preferences and tell you the id's of superleague 1 & 2 cause the other are not accesible. I guess this is the same reason you have to wait for the editor to make the change. Just keep a note for when the time comes that the lower leagues are not named ''D' Ethniki - Athens or Pireaus or any other region''. The right one is ''EPS - Athens or etc''. Also i wanna thank you for your work cause its my favourite add on since 2012 when i found sortioutsi.

Thanks for your kind words and for these suggestions If I get in touch when the full game and editor are released, would you ind helping me confirm if the changes I make are correct or not?

The issue is mostly with the leagues which aren't playable and which aren't as easy to understand the names and levels for when using the site's database, which is extremely helpful nonetheless

Thanks to qvordrup i found all the id's. Because i have to return to army tomorrow night i will prepare a note file with the id's and the correct names for all the greek competitions today and when you have time use it. Tell me if there is more to add other than id and the new name.

That would be lovely

The way the file is structured, the UID and name is fine. Competitions also have long and short names, such as

"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 129650 "SuperLeague 1 Sourotí" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 129650 "SuperLeague 1" ""

but if I know the long name, I can usually work out the short name myself
