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
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!

    hi is there a way or going to be a way of seeing the potential attributes on a player?
  • Radiusscorpion's avatar
    Hi, sorry I have a problem with this program, when I try to do load game I get a written notification "FAILED TO LOAD FOOTBALL MENAGER DATE: COULD NOT FIND A COMPATIBLE FOOTBAL MENAGER VERSION". What should I do?
  • AIM23's avatar
    @Stam, a new question.
    I have Win10 64 bits, but the process of FM is executed in 32 bits. I don't understand why. Maybe it's that I'm missing something to run the game in 64bit?
    Maybe if I can use the editor, but for some reason, windows runs my FM in 32 bits. Why?

  • mcswifty's avatar
    In the FMSE, you can edit in team, something named "Youth Importance" - what is that?
  • Stam's avatar
    @JoaoNeveSevenN7: Changing club names is not currently possible. You could accomplish that using simple text files (.lnc); have a look at FM17 real names fix.

    @AdrenalinVL: Not sure I understand what you're trying to do. You need to register your license in order to activate the In-Game Assistant.

    @fmsharky: You need to have FM17 open with your game loaded. You can't load the saved game file directly on FMSE.

    @Foxhound: Thanks for your support! We'll keep adding more features to FMSE.

    @AdamAkihihara: I've answered your forum post.
  • JoaoNeveSevenN7's avatar
    I just want to change the club names, can I do it without using the paid version?
  • AdrenalinVL's avatar
    Iam using the FMSE 17 with purchased license... What folder do I have to locate to get the In Game Hidden attributes etc?
  • fmsharky's avatar
    is the fmse17 save game compatible?
  • Foxhound's avatar
    Best 4.99 (£5.99 with vat) ever spent. Amazing software! Thanks for your hard work and development, look forward to more updates :)
  • AdamAkihihara's avatar
    Hi i just bought the licence and it registered but i still cant access editing team nicknames and abbreviation and when i change the city it crashes the app. as the well changes do not work when the game is saved
  • Stam's avatar
    @AIM23: It's very likely we'll roll out a 32-bit version before FM18. I understand it's late for FM17, but we couldn't start this project earlier. We'll keep improving FMSE throughout the summer, and hopefully this editor will be a worthy choice for everyone once the next FM season kicks off. Thanks for your interest :)
  • AIM23's avatar
    I hope for the next editor on FM18, think about the 32bit versions.
    Since in May, I'm about to finish the season ... And with a summer ahead .... I do not see any sense buying this Editor. If I came to know, I bought the original, which at least did think in both versions.
    You will have a great editor, but only for those who can get it.
    Very bad.

    thank you

    @emitro68: We don't store any licenses on the site. Please send an email to and make a request for it and you shall receive it asap.
  • emitro68's avatar
    I have lost it. Can you r forum retreive it
  • Stam's avatar
    @emitro68: No. You can use the same license you already have. :)
  • emitro68's avatar
    hi recently reformatted my computer ,but before that i had bought a licence for the i have to buy a new liucense now
  • Stam's avatar
    @joandrle: We haven't implemented player roles yet. However, "player ratings" won our latest vote poll, which means we should be working on that soon.

    @edd1948: Not yet, but we'll add that first chance we get.
  • joandrle's avatar
    How to see best player role?
  • edd1948's avatar
    Can i change the player's nationality?
  • Stam's avatar
    @Tudorliviu3: Saving your edits requires a license, it's clearly stated above and in other FMSE references around the site. Simple scouting is free, editing is premium.
  • Tudorliviu3's avatar
    When I m trying to press the save button, it says that I must purchase the license. What can I do?
  • AIM23's avatar
    @Stam Well, I hope and wish that moment comes soon, because I've been waiting for something like this for quite some time.
    Thanks for your answer.
  • Stam's avatar
    @AIM23: I have answered this a few times (scroll through my recent comment replies), but mainly explaining it's something we intend to do eventually without having a firm deadline. If you actually read the text above, you'll find that FMSE is currently 64-bit only (stated twice; first occurrence in the starting paragraph).
  • AIM23's avatar
    I have asked on two occasions if there is a possibility that I can buy this application for 32bit.
    unanswered. They devote their time to answer to those who do not intend to value their work or pay it. And they do not respond to those who can.
    Thanks for ignoring me.
