FM 2014 Tools - FM Editor Live 2014
FM Editor Live 2014 is a simple real time editor for Football Manager 2014 that allows you to edit data of your loaded FM14 save-game on the fly. FMEL is the only real-time editor that works with the FMC mode, and the only one that is free to use.

FMEL 2013 was released last February and it was the only free real-time editor for FM13. Its simplicity, speed and flawless functionality made it popular fast; counting over 250,000 downloads to this day. These characteristics remain in this new FM14 compatible version.

FMEL is exclusively available from

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

  • Reputation
  • Chairman Status
  • Training Facilities
  • Youth Facilities
  • Junior Coaching
  • Youth Recruitment Network
  • Transfer Budgets (Season and Remaining)
  • Wage Budget
  • Maximum Wage
  • Overall Balance
  • Kit Colors (icon, shorts, socks, text, shirt)
  • Heal Team / Destroy Team *

  • Heal / Destroy (condition, jadedness)
  • Birthday
  • Nationality
  • Height / Weight
  • Foot
  • CA / PA
  • Fitness / Match Fitness / Jadedness / Condition
  • Reputation (Current, Home, World)
  • Positions
  • Contracts (wage and end date)
  • Relations
  • Heal / Destroy *
  • Attributes (view only)

  • Name
  • Capacity
  • Seating Capacity
  • Expansion Capacity

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

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

How to use

1. Extract the downloaded in a folder of your choice.

2. Run Football Manager 2014, and load your save game (or start a new one).

3. Run FMEditorLive.exe (ALT+TAB to desktop first if you're running FM full screen).

4. Click the "Load Game" button.

5. Enter club's name in the Search input box and hit Enter.

6. Double-click on the club's row. Edit what you wish in the 4 tabs available (Information, Finances, Kits, Teams) and click Save.

Double-click on the person's row. Edit what you like and click Save.

Double-click on the stadium's row. Edit what you like and click Save.

Known Issues

If you close FM14 before FMEL14, the app will crash and trigger error popups. To avoid this, please close FMEL14 before closing FM14. Otherwise, you'll have to terminate the FMEL process using Windows Task Manager.

    Is it possible to add future transfers in game?

  • GMFS's avatar
    Is it possible to change the player's attributes
  • zoppi_'s avatar
    my error is that one :

    It can be translated approximatively (my english is really bad) by :
    "Year month an day parameters describe a datetime format that cannot be read"
  • Bluemaniac's avatar
    I have one question about editing the stadium capacity.
    I added seats to my stadium and under the facility in the game it stands capacity 51927
    ( 20477 can be used in regular games). In league games i can only have 20477, in CL/ cup games i can use the 51927.
    Is it possible to use the full capacity in league games as well=??
  • mizie's avatar
    At the main team screen it would crucial to see the player's age. Please make that available.
  • marvels's avatar

    We'll consider this for the future
  • marvels's avatar

    can you post the error message?

    and what version of FM14 are using ? Steam International?
  • Paradoxe's avatar

    i should add that I do not have russian or polish version, I used ti it franch, but tried in english...

    Just for information, I'Ve tried all formats for date "/", "-", and "." with ddmmyyyy, yyyymmdd or mmddyyy
  • zoppi_'s avatar
    when loading game, it says me that the datetime format cannot be read.
    I tried to modified the format in "preferences" "format" of FM14, but i didn't figured it out.
    Is there an issue ?
    What fate format should FM use to work with FMEL ?

    @Britten42: There's no solution, we'll try to fix that with the next version.
  • Britten42's avatar

    I read through the comments and saw that people had the problem but no one really offered a solution. At least, not a solution on this comments section, hence my asking.
    And secondly, I too dont believe it happens straight away but like i said, ive done it before and my player was awesome a couple of in game weeks later. After trying it last night, that wasnt the case so was wondering if there was something i was missing
  • marvels's avatar

    Please see the requirements to run FMEL 2014.


    If you read through any of the comments we're aware of the CA issue.

    In relation to adjusting the CA and expecting players attributes to instantly increase I just don't believe it works like this.
  • Britten42's avatar
    Hey guys, was wondering if anyone could help me with a couple of problems that i have run into?
    First, whenever i try to change the CA, Ill save and then refresh to which then it switches it again by itself, usually to a lower number. And then if it decides to switch it to a higher CA, it bugs out and then i cant edit the player anymore.
    Second, when i do eventually manage to change the CA for a player, all is good and well from coach reports, 5 stars all around. Only set back being that the stats for him havent improved in the least. Although saying that, i did it a while back for one of my players and all of a sudden his stats improved dramatically after i didnt look at him for a game or two. Is there a secret or a trick to getting the stats to represent the coach report? Thanks
  • Davidvia0's avatar
    I can't load the game. There is a note about Year, Month and Day describing DateTime, which can't be presented (Not exactly like that, because I got polish version 14.3).

    FMRTE updates to the latest version vs. your game version. FMEL is built specifically for the latest version of FM2014. For you to use FMEL go through steam and update your game.
  • BAD-RELIGION's avatar
    Thanks stam & marvels for the replys :)
    Since I used FMRTE and always loeaded my games I thought I wouldn't have any problem with FMEL :(
  • ronin12sapo's avatar
    For when a version for mac?
  • NDU's avatar
    I can't edit Current Ability or Potential Ability without it doing weird stuff.

    I was editing a goalkeeper regen to be taller, and raised his CA by 5 (to 98) to reflect this, and then when I clicked save and reloaded the guy because I forgot to add my club as his favourite, his CA had dropped from 93 (as it was before) to 77. I have similar problems with better players as well, editing CA to 159 and saving gives a player a CA of 143, and editing it to 160 will give them a CA of 177. The same trend occurs as you increase or decrease from these values, I cannot give anyone a CA of between 144 and 176.

    None of the CA editing seems to be editing correctly, although it is editing. The PA editing seems fine though.
  • taklabas's avatar
    I wasn't aware i can't edit non-playable clubs, so it was a mistake on my part. Do you think some non-playable clubs could be edited in the future?
  • marvels's avatar

    I can partial replicate this...happens with some, and others its fine.
  • Stam's avatar
    @srinath33: So it works fine for real staff and there's a problem with newgen staff? Have you tried other newgen staff or this Carlos dude is the only one that triggers the error for you? By the way, that error doesn't affect anything it's just a debugging message.

    @BAD-RELIGION: If the program opens, it means the .net framework is fine. Most likely your FM14 version is not the 14.3.0 Steam international version.

    @taklabas: Editing facilities works fine for me, except for junior coaching that seems it's not changing. The only case I was able to reproduce your issue is when I tried editing facilities for an obscure non-playable club and then tried to continue. We'll look into junior coaching, but for playable clubs I can't make the crash happen on my end.

    @stam :

    Try doing the following steps:
    1) load game on FMEL
    2) Search for guardiola
    3) Pep opens properly
    4) the 3rd guardiola ( carlos), when you try to open his profile, the error pops up
