FM Base | FM21 Real Names License Fix by Darkness V7 3/4/2021 Compatibel 21.4 Patch

The most comprehensive Real Name Fix for Football Manager returns for Football Manager 2021 Under my username "Darkness", I have been releasing regular updates and various database-related files since 2009. My longevity has contributed to the way I work. You'll find that my files are of a very high quality.

Download my real name fix for FM21. There's no doubting that you'll love it.
Make sure you re-install this Real Name Fix every time Football Manager gets patched/updated.


Instructions:
  1. Find the 2140 folder.
    Windows:

    STEAM
    \Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager 2021\data\database\db\2140\
    EPIC GAMES
    \Program Files\Epic Games\FootballManager2021\data\database\db\2140\
    Mac:
    STEAM
    /Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/common/Football Manager 2021/database/data/db/2140/
    EPIC GAMES
    /Users/Shared/Epic Games/FootballManager2021/database/data/db/2140/
  2. Open the lnc folder and then enter the all sub-folder.
  3. Delete all files you can find in there, particularly the following 3 files:
    • fake.lnc
    • lic_dan_swe_fra.lnc
    • nleague.lnc
  4. Move FM Base | FM21 Real Name Fix by Darkness (LNC) inside this all folder.
  5. Go 2 folders back to find the edt folder.
    Open it and then enter the permanent sub-folder.
  6. Delete the file "fake.edt".
    This will fix Niko Kovač from getting renamed to Max Freund, Oliver Kahn from getting renamed to Jens Freund,.
  7. Again go 2 folders back, this time to find the dbc folder.
    Delete the following files (This will fix Juventus):
    • zebra award.dbc
    • zebra turin fake staff new.dbc
  8. Now enter the permanent sub-folder remove 4 files.
    • brazil_kits.dbc
    • forbidden names.dbc
    • Licensing2.dbc
    • Licensing2_chn.dbc
    • This will prevent Brazilian clubs from reverting to 3-letter names and will allow certain kits to be visible again.

Very good, easy to set-up
excellent as always, but on my save the brazilian clubs stay in their original thre letter name scheme. Mistake on my side or just an issue with the fix?

First off thank you! I also want to add that this will also work just fine with FMTouch, so double Thanks ;)
There are many real names license fixes online, but I have been preferring the updates from Darkness for several years now.

Thank You welcome.
Great name fix but one issue I encountered was that a lot of clubs had lost their nicknames. A must have if the loss of nicknames doesn't bother you.

This has been a problem with the nicknames for years that has to do with the game itself.
Unfortunately I cannot fix this. Thanks for your comment
Everything in 1 file with the most licenses perfect!
