How to install FM20 Sleeping Giants Awaken Database?
Put the "FM20 Sleeping Giants Awaken Database.fmf" file in: "Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2020\editor data"
Then when you're starting a new game make sure that this file is "ticked". It works perfectly with Football Manager 20.4 update.
Additional tips & tricks:1. When you're creating a manager give him one nationality from Africa for example Ghana, the other one might be your preferable one. Of course, you can also make him Korean, Iranian, Ecuadorian, or whatever you prefer.
2. Add a few languages to your manager's resume, make him multilingual even if it might look unrealistic to know Japanese, and Suahili or Zulu.
3. When you will be deciding which league to play tick all neighboring countries.
4. Make sure to tick South Africa and South Korea
Then add at least one country from South America, preferably: Uruguay, Colombia or Chile.
5. As for big countries like Brazil or Argentina, that's your decision to make if you need to pick one of them, but even if you don't tick them at all you will still see regens from those countries in the game.
6. European countries that you should be interested to tick: Poland, Ukraine, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Austria
Set all leagues that you've decided to pick as "playable" not as "view only".
