FM 2013 Tools - FM Editor Live 2013
FM Editor Live is a simple real time editor for Football Manager 2013.
It's the evolution of FM Real-Time Financial Editor and has been produced due to popular demand for a more advanced free editor.

Like its predecessor, FMEL has a very straightforward interface and works very fast.

Exclusively available from

This tool is released for FREE, as we feel you shouldn't be forced to pay for 3rd party tools of a game.

Released: 13 February 2013 - v1.3
Updated: 30 June 2013 - v1.4

Redistribution Policy:
People who want to put FM Editor Live 2013 on other sites, you may link back to this very page but you cannot host any files yourselves. Thank you!


FMEL allows you to search for the club and person of your choice and edit:

  • Reputation
  • Chairman Status
  • Training Facilities
  • Youth Facilities
  • Junior Coaching
  • Youth Recruitment Network
  • Transfer Budget
  • Wage Budget
  • Maximum Wage
  • Overall Balance
  • Kit Colors
  • Heal Team / Destroy Team *

  • Heal / Destroy (condition, jadedness)
  • Birthday
  • Nationality
  • CA / PA
  • Fitness / Match Fitness / Jadedness
  • Current Reputation / Home Reputation / World Reputation
  • Positions
  • Contracts (basic details)
  • Relations

* Heal Team not only heals injuries but also changes the player's condition to 100% and clears his jadedness. Destroy Team is the exact opposite.

FMEL is a simple editor that allows you to quickly adjust information of clubs and persons. It should be safe to use it, but at any case make sure to keep a backup of your savegame before using.

    Installed and placed in FM13 folder, but says access denied. Any help?
  • Gaztop's avatar
    I still play FM13, just for the fun of it. And this little gem,
    gives me a bit of an edge, when I need it.
    A clever bit of programming. easy to use.
    Ron Manager would be proud..."Oh yes, isn't it? FMEL...Is that a swear word? Mmm? It is now!"
  • Stam's avatar
    FMEL for FM14 is now released! Enjoy :)
  • pawll1's avatar
    when this editor will released for fm 14 ?
  • morrisbey88's avatar
    That is because this version is for FM13 not FM14. It doesn't look like there'll be one for FM14. Does anyone know of another in game editor that works with FM classic?
  • Mika_SRB's avatar

    I have a problem.My version football manager 2014 is 14.1.3 and this version of fm editor live is not compatible with it!Pls help.Thank you

    How to you change team morale and player morale?
  • andy266's avatar
    A quote from Stam -

    "It's not certain we'll produce FMEL 2014, because the main author of the app has to serve his military duty now and won't be able to work on FMEL. We'll try but can't promise anything at the moment".
  • linie's avatar
    Would love nothing more than to use this tool for FM14. But it's totally understandable that the makers won't release it now, at a time when the game is constantly patched and the tool would be rendered unusable.
  • andy266's avatar
    Stam, you may speak your mind and you may speak the truth, but what you don't do on this page is speak often enough, so when is FMEL 14 coming out.
  • lamekemal's avatar
    please send me url for source code for 2014 edition. I need build fmle 14 eidtion help-me i a .net good developpers \with visual studios\
  • rexr_001's avatar

  • Mike Vegas's avatar
    Help! 13.3.3 The Russian version of the game.
  • Crashdiet's avatar
    i destroyed my team by accident, does anyone know how to get my team back? I have searched for hours to get help
  • walko92's avatar
    Will there be a FMEL for FM14? if so when can we expect a release?
  • dan23081's avatar
    I think there is alot more work to be done on this editor to compete with FMRTE.
    Although they do charge now which is why they gone downhill. Attributes of players need be edited. Staff attributes, CA and PA need be edited.
    Please stay free and update these for the FM 2014.
    Thank you

    Just a question about the chairman status, is that a level of how happy the chairman is? And if so, is a higher number a higher amount of happiness? What is the range of this value?
  • ANDYLAD52's avatar
    I know that someone has already asked you if you are releasing an editor for FM2014 but you did not reply and I wondered if you could just clarify if and when the editor will be released.


  • ph_cfc's avatar
    quick question, although I agree you shouldn't be able to edit attributes, whats the point then of changing the current ability attribute? what does that actually change?
  • downloadkct's avatar
    So, do you pretend to make a FM Editor Live 2014? :D
    Its the best tool ever, i feel like im not cheating (i always feel that way when i open fmrte)
  • rumbleweed's avatar
    To reflect Arsenal's recent signing of Ozil from Real Madrid, I've been trying to edit his Relations ratings to "convince" him to come over to North London. Here's what I did in the editor...

    And here are the results in the game.

    Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong here? Anyone try something like this before?
  • wokingfan96's avatar
    If you edit a stadiums capacity it just makes it have the new capacity but limited to the old one. For example I expanded wokings stadium from 6036 to 8000 and it says Capacity: 8000 (Limited to 6036) which means it basically does no good. Please can you fix this? I would be very grateful :)

    Also, probably even more, I would love the ability to be able to edit a teams attendances like in fmrte. That would be really great. Thank you :)
  • Toluma's avatar
    I'm guessing editing individual attributes won't be getting updated in.
  • Henke25's avatar
    It'a a fantastic tool. VERY much appreciated. The only thing I miss is the ability to edit hidden skills and determination.
