@Ron Wandle, I can see what you mean. But it'll be something "wrong" from SI, rather than an actual licensing issue - so it wouldn't be something for this file

Yep, the mistake looks to be by SI, not with this file.

Thanks for making the file available!
Can you give me a couple of examples so I can check please? I don't think the issue it'll be at my end tbh...

I think I've worked out what's going on.

The twenty teams in Campeonato Brasileiro Série C are divided into two regional leagues of ten teams each, Group A and Group B. The game accurately has all twenty of these real life Série C teams, but does not put them in the correct real life groups - the game places three Group A teams in Group B, and vice versa.

The Wikipedia page on the 2019 Campeonato Brasileiro Série C has a helpful map of where the competing teams are located. I have highlighted the two regional leagues in the maps below, with Group A in red, and Group B in green. The map on the left shows the real life distribution of clubs, while the map on the right shows the distribution of clubs as appearing in the game.

It can be seen that, in real life, Group A encompasses the north-east of Brazil, with Group B encompassing the rest of the country, while, in the game, the division is on a more North-South basis.

I don't know my Brazilian leagues from my elbow, so it's not a big deal. At least it has a logic to it. I think that in Série B and upwards the league is unified again, anyway.
Not sure what's going on. For example, according to Wikipedia, Náutico played in Campeonato Brasileiro Série C in both 2018 and 2019, both times in Group A. However, in the game, they are in Group B.
Sorry, they aren't from the 2018 season as I stated a couple of posts ago. I'm not sure where these other three teams have come from.
Can you give me a couple of examples so I can check please? I don't think the issue it'll be at my end tbh...

These are the clubs in the 2019 Campeonato Brasileiro Série C (27 April to 6 October 2019), Group B, according to Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_Campeonato_Brasileiro_S%C3%A9rie_C ):

Atlético Acreano
Boa Esporte
Juventude
Luverdense
Paysandu
Remo

São José
Tombense
Volta Redonda
Ypiranga

These are the clubs in 2019 Campeonato Brasileiro Série C, Group B, in the game:

Boa
Confiança (SE)
Juventude
Luverdense
Náutico
Santa Cruz

São José (RS)
Tombense
Volta Redonda
Ypiranga (RS)

Differences are bolded.
Hi, I've applied the FM2020 Licensing and Real Name Fix File v1.3 to FM Touch 2020.

Looking in the lowest Brazilian league, the Campeonato Brasileiro Série C, the teams featured are those from the 2018 season (14 April to 22 September 2018), not the 2019 season in which FM 2020 starts.

What's going on here? Is this Sports Interactive not updating the current teams, or the Licensing and Real Name Fix applying the wrong names to them?
If you have already started a save-game or you are playing FMT or you are playing the beta and wish to change German, Spanish, Italian and French club names to the correct ones, there is a workaround. However, you will lose the club nicknames.

Open the City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc file with Notepad (on Windows) and TextEdit (on Mac). All the changes I've made in the editor data file are included in this file, however they are preceded by a hashtag (#) which makes the lnc file ignore any text following it.

You can remove the hashtags from in front of any of the "CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" and "CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" codes which you wish to change, and this will ensure these changes are displayed in your save game.

For Notepad, all you need to do is: Select the edit menu, click the replace option, type #"CLUB in the first field and "CLUB in the second and clicking replace all. Then save and close. Shouldn't take more than 3 seconds if you do it right

Basically, instead of


#"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern München" ""
#"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern" ""

you should have


"CLUB_LONG_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern München" ""
"CLUB_SHORT_NAME_CHANGE" 915 "FC Bayern" ""


Basically:
Using an lnc
Pro: Can be used (and disabled) after a save game has been started
Con: Removes club nicknames for those teams whose name has been edited


Using the editor data file
Pro: Retains club nicknames
Con: Needs to be applied before starting a new game

I'm applying these changes to FM 2020 Touch.

For modifying the "City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc" file in Notepad, is this this to be done to all three "City, Club and Stadium Names.lnc" files, i.e. the file of that name in each of the 2000, 2001 and 2010 folders?

Thanks in advance.
