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

Redistribution Policy:
People who want to put FM Editor Live 2014 on other sites, you may link back to this very page but you cannot host any files yourselves. Thank you!

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

Released: 18 March 2014 - v2.0
Updated: 4 May 2014 - v2.1.1


.NET FRAMEWORK 4.0 (standalone offline installer) or higher
To find out if you have .NET Framework 4.0 installed, you can use Framework Detector (free tool).

Patch 14.3.1 or Patch 14.3.0 (International)
To use this version of FMEL, you must have your game updated with 14.3.1 or 14.3.0.
Please note it won't work with the special editions of the game (Russian, Korean...). If you have one of the mentioned special editions of FM14 and you want to help us add support for it, please follow the instructions outlined on this topic.

Microsoft Windows
Compatible with Windows XP (SP3), Vista, 7, 8.
If you're looking for a similar tool for Mac, please check out MacAssistant RT for FM14 (another exclusive tool we release).


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.

Thankfully, Thanos (creator of MacAssistant RT) kindly agreed to undertake the task of porting the tool to work with FM14, and he succeeded. He was helping with information and research last year.

Jay was a major help in the last version of FMEL 2013, and kindly helping out this year too.

  • alexjamiesonjnr's avatar
    Random question probably but does this editor work for editing vita games on the pc version?
  • SCCPVini's avatar
    No, you did not say, I'm just asking you to give good news: D
  • marvels's avatar

    Where does it say that?...I've always maintained that we're aiming for before Christmas.
  • SCCPVini's avatar
    Nothing yet? :'(
    Says it will launch the version 2015 weeks to come, says !!
  • marvels's avatar

    Still aiming for before Christmas...did work on it last night, there are some subtle changes between this year and last year that we're working through!
  • lmaoboxhack's avatar

    Hi, do you have an ETA for the FM15 Editor Live? Really fed-up with the default editor, so hard to use :/
  • marvels's avatar

    Still working on updating it!
  • managerikoi15's avatar
    when come out the fm editor live 2015??
  • nikospkrk's avatar
    @marvels Awesome!
  • marvels's avatar

    Morale should be editable ( as it was in FMEL 14 ). Attributes will need to be revisited as they were editable at one point, but caused quite a few issues so were removed.
  • marvels's avatar

    We're looking into it!
  •'s avatar

    This tool is fantastic! Thanks so much.

    I just had a quick question. Any plans to make player names, attributes and morale editable? I'm a programmer so could help to do it if you wnated. What language is it written in?

    Other that those three things this covers just about everything. Steam unlockables had just got broken for Canadian users so this is a life saver!

  • nikospkrk's avatar
    Any plans for this amazing tool for FM15?
  • Kobe8's avatar
    i can't edit the kits for lower german league team!

    Has anyone discovered the same?

    With best regards
  • javier9627's avatar
    Any one with the version 2.0?

    It doesn't let me use the newer versions since I don't have 14.3.0 neither 14.3.1
  • samash1991's avatar
    any plans to add more editing to contracts like adding release clauses?
  • tieio's avatar
    Thank you for the good work, looking forward to an update that adds the full editing back. Having said that, I also would enjoy a link to version 2.1, when I did have it, I never had any issues editing individual attributes.
  • choppitychop89's avatar
    I too would like to download version 2.1

    I had no problem when editing attributes.
    I have a new computer and want to download the older version.

    Could someone PM me if they have it?
  • Barneso's avatar

    what does this mean and how do i fix it? it didnt do anything when i went to another player from liverpool team so is it just for that darlington team
  • Squeek's avatar
    If I change both the CA and the PA, how long does it take for the stats to increase ingame? or is it supposed to increase immediately? Because then Im doing something wrong :P
  • DylanElliss's avatar
    I installed it and it was all working but when i went to a certain team it wouldnt work because of soemething to do with debugging an the values being too high. i got the same message when i tried to remove a player ban is there anything i can do?
  • fede_deleon's avatar

    I apologize for my bad English (I'm speak Spanish, I'm from Argentina).

    I need the version 2.1 of FMEL (where you could edit the attributes of the players).
    Anyone know how I could get or could send me a private message through the file?
    I know is generating errors when editing players and advance the game, but had found a way to contain flaws by an exhaustive follow-up of the editions of the players and with the help of the latest version of the editor (2.1.1).
    If someone could send me the file or get much appreciate it.

    Thank you very much and sorry for the inconvenience!
