FMSE Features

Even though the initial alpha version is missing plenty of features that we're still working on adding, it's already packed with a plethora of options and running lightning fast. The focus is clearly on the editing side of things. The scouting part will grow in due time.

Once we reach beta, FMSE17 shall have a much wider range of functionality to meet the needs of our most demanding users. That won't take as long as you might expect, so make sure to vote for the feature you wish to see next.

We intend to issue weekly updates, so there will be something new to look forward to every single week.

Whenever there's a new official patch out, we aim to update within a couple of hours. And while update time is dependent on external factors (such as patch complexity or other unpredictable situations), we'll do our best to deliver updates faster than any other third party tool out there.

Here's an overview of the currently available key features...

In-Game Assistant NEW
See hidden player attributes, CA/PA & actual left/right foot values right in the game (attributes screen). This is an exclusive feature no other tool for Windows is offering!

    @jocar96: Eventually, yes. Not sure how long it's going to take though.
  • jocar96's avatar
    Will it be 32-bit version?
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @PENA93 no worries! It's already out indeed :)
  • PENA93's avatar
    any news on when will 17.3.1 be released?

    *edit* sorry for the question guys. quess it is already out ;)
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @mcmanus1404 17.3.1 is not officially released yet. If you are on the public beta, then FMSE17 is not compatible with it. We don't support the public beta versions on FM17, as they get updated very frequently. Once 17.3.1 is officially released, we will immediately add support for it.
  • mcmanus1404's avatar
    even with the updates it does not work with FM 17.3.1
  • Lucasino27's avatar
    Thank you :)
  • Stam's avatar
    We've released 2 updates today! The first one introduced a couple of minor new features and the second added support for today's 17.3.0 patch.

    @Joao: I think it must be clear from the information above that FMSE only works with the latest 17.2.1 Steam 64-bit version of FM17. Once 17.3 is released, we'll add support for it asap.
  • JoaoNeveSevenN7's avatar
    This does not work for cracked versions does it?
    It never passes from "Loading Game Data"
  • Stam's avatar
    @sparkysrovers: This happens because the game caches the screens you've already visited. If you press the "Continue" button in-game and move forward to the next stop, you should see the changes.

    If you want to see your changes immediately, you can disable the "Use caching to decrease page loading times" option, which can be found on the Preferences > Interface screen in-game.

    FAQ Reference.

    Changing player attributes and PPM's not working for me

    FM Scout Editor 17 Update is now available.
    FMSE17 v0.3.0.0 changelist

    Major new feature: Added Relationships tab in the Player's panel. You can view/edit a player's liked/disliked people/clubs, and over 50 other relationship types.

  • Stam's avatar
    @enis: Make sure you have the game running and loaded a save inside it. Also you need the latest Steam 17.2.1 version 64-bit, it's the only version supported by our tool.

    @iipopper: FM comes with a free pre-game editor. Fiddling with that means that you need to start a new save to see your changes. There's also an in-game editor (to make changes on the fly in your existing saves) as a paid download from the in-game store. FMSE will have way more features than IGE once we reach beta.
  • enis's avatar
    Keeps staying on "Loading Game Data " , any suggestion ?
    im on 17.2 version
  • iipopper's avatar
    I'm saying this in a bad way in anyway but whats the point of this if Fm already comes with editor? is there more things you guys added?
  • Stam's avatar
    @deeq: Thanks for your suggestions. The first one is something we're already working on. We'll look into the club shortcut as well.

    On a side note, I'd like to say that our next major feature will be related to editing players. Also, there could be one week without any new major features being added because of the upcoming winter transfers official patch and the work we must put it to make FMSE compatible with it.
  • deeq's avatar
    Ok, couple of more suggestions -

    -It will be nice if the filter doesn't reset every time, after entering a lot of info and you do a search, the filter will clear itself.

    -It will also be nice if we have a shortcut or toggle to our club page instead of manually searching it every time.. like FMRTE does.

    Hi @linie, you can try changing the ticket price ratios in the club finances. They should, in theory, alter the ticket prices, but I haven't tested this extensively yet.
