FM2020 Licensing and Real Name Fix File v1.2 for FM20 [released on 03/12/2019]
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 Borussia Mönchengladbach 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 (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

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




OPEN
sdcard\Android\data\com.sega.soccer.champions\files\installed\data\database\db\2000
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders
OPEN
sdcard\Android\data\com.sega.soccer.champions\files\installed\data\database\db\2001
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders
OPEN
sdcard\Android\data\com.sega.soccer.champions\files\installed\data\database\db\2010
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders

Club names are only changed on Android if you effect the workaround in this post.




[b]OPEN
appdata-local-packages-SportsInteractive(with a lot of random numbers)-Localcache-Local-Microsoft-WriteablePackageRoot-data\database\db\2000
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders
OPEN
appdata-local-packages-SportsInteractive(with a lot of random numbers)-Localcache-Local-Microsoft-WriteablePackageRoot-data\database\db\2001
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders
OPEN
appdata-local-packages-SportsInteractive(with a lot of random numbers)-Localcache-Local-Microsoft-WriteablePackageRoot-data\database\db\2010
DELETE the dbc , edt and lnc folders



[u]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, 2001 and 2010 folders:

dbc: https://i.imgur.com/dfTgu9C.png
dbc/permanent: https://i.imgur.com/I2Dx39F.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.

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
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


Hope i didnt make any typo. I didnt change any of the defunct leagues and cups names so to keep history intact. Hope i did it right since is the first time i deal with id's. All the names are the long names.

That's really, really great, very much appreciated

Not sure what you mean by tones. Did you mean accents? If yes, would you say Protathlímata, Protáthlima and Kýpello are correct?

For the Greek Amateur Divisions and Cups, I was considering having the initials as the short name (e.g. EPSK, EPSP etc.) but there were some instances where different competitions had the same initialism, which could cause confusion, so I kept the same short name as the long name. I have kept the region names as they were in the file before since they had been given to me by a Greek, so I hope they are correct (e.g. Serrón, Imathías etc.) Hope this is OK.

I've pasted it all here. If you could check it all appears fine, I'd be tremendously indebted. You can ignore the final entries with #? before the code - it's there so that the game ignores them, but for me to revisit those particular UIDs when the editor comes out. I suspect they are extinct competitions, but they could possibly still need to be changed so that they appear correctly in teams' and players' histories, but that can wait till then
the name of the belenenses team of the portuguese league is wrong.
Belenenses sad exists in the Portuguese first league, and in Belém district football clubs.
Can you fix this?

It's perfect. This is exactly what i meant with the tones. You got it just right. Few things i noticed. 1) Greek cup it's Kýpello Ellados and without the ''opap'' since the sponssorship has been withdrawn.
2) Souper kap ellados is completely wrong greeklish, Super Cup Ellados would be perfect.
3) Evvoias is written with one ''v''.
4) EPS Prévezas is EPS Prévezas kai Lefkádas
Lets hope the structure wont change next year because its shitty enough. The initials i got them from the EPO and they are the official. They are so geniuses that they have the same initials for 2-3 or even 4 EPS.
yes, and I did check the awards.inc,
and start the new game again, but it's still Euro cup award, First Division (should be La liga) awards

As originally suspected, I'm afraid it looks like you may not have installed the files correctly as everything appears to be in order




the name of the belenenses team of the portuguese league is wrong.

They are set as follows, as suggested earlier in this thread:


#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 1474 "Clube de Futebol Os Belenenses" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 1474 "Os Belenenses" ""


#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 83255937 "Os Belenenses Futebol" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 83255937 "Belenenses" ""

small thing:
either
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 129650 "SuperLeague 1" ""
"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 129650 "SL1" ""
"COMP_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 129651 "SuperLeague 2" ""

"COMP_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 129651 "SL2" ""

SuperLeague or Super League in both 1 and 2

Belenenses SAD in NOS League
Belenenses in the District

#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 83255937 "Belenenses SAD " ""

This is right. It is just the logos that are wrong. The two teams has switch UID from fm19 to fm20. this will be fixed in the next update of the metallic logo pack

As Qvordrup says, the names are correct, it's just the logos which aren't right, but this file doesn't change logos

Hey guys, long time lurker here.

Thanks for the work, I dont know if it has been mentioned yet, but Gladbach coach Marco Rose is still "Lukas Almsick" after installing the real name fix. Could you possible take a look into this ? Thank you

This is the first I'm hearing of it

However, the way the fix is structured means that, if installed correctly, even without me knowing the fake name is removed. Check your edt/permanent folders; chances are a file titled fake.edt removed when downloading this file was recreated in one of the hotfixes. That's why I always say that when a patch/hotfix is released, this download should be applied again

Hey, thanks for your reply.

I actually installed the name fix freshly yesterday, the name was still "Almsick" instead of Marco Rose. We tried it with and without the name fix, both times it wouldnt fix the name for Marco Rose. I just added it manually for now, I thought it might be useable info for you.

Really appreciate the heads-up, mate - the issue hadn't been spotted before, believe it or not! I'll make sure to add it manually, but if the edt/permanent and lnc folders are as per the respective screenshots, I believe that the name change doesn't take place, although I'll have to investigate to be sure
Also change EPL -> PL
Also change EPL -> PL

It's not the only Premier League in the world, which is why iirc it's there as EPL.

Just thought I'll check it myself, his name seems correct in my game, both old saves from fix v0.1 and new saves with 0.3.
With the new update/public beta that just came out would I be right in thinking that all I would have to do is follow the instructions, but also delete the files from the new database folder and then add in the downloaded ones?

I'm not home right now, but the most important thing is that the dbc, the dbc/permanent, the edt/permanent and lnc folders look like the ones in the screenshots in the main post.
Sorry for the dumb question, but cannot find 2010 in a search. On step 1 on the DB folders, you talk about the 2000 folder and 2001 folder deleting the dbc, edt, and inc folders -- do we leave the 2010 folder alone? or do the same with it? (or is this the same as it was last year, where it only needed to be in 2 of the folders but not all 3)
