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.

    Hi, I want to ask why I'm not going to do player transfers? The editor will give the player to another club but the game is still in the old moves and shows all the details of the contract. How do I do to make it go?
  • kevinroberts's avatar
    Are you supposed to transfer players between teams? ;)
  • Dr Zebra's avatar
    Hey, any idea/estimation of timescale for when attribute editing will be back in?
    (just out of interest)

    Also will this work for staff?
  • az89's avatar
    Can i transfer the players between two teams?
  • lukeLUFCwroe's avatar
    a player whose current ability and potential ability i edited for some reason his attributes are randomly dropping why is this?
  • M4RINE's avatar
    My game is definitely running in the background because I have a City game running at the moment but the editor still says 'Football Manager isn't running!'

    Any reason why?

  • basler04's avatar
    It would be great if additional contract editing features could be added other than just wage and end data, such as minimum fee release clause etc.

    Also it would be great if you could edit transfer status so you could edit a player to be transfer listed.

    Downloaded v2.1.1 tonight on Win7. Running an FMC game (14.3.1) but when I click 'Load Game' I get the message, "Year, Month, and Day parameters describe an un-representable DateTime." Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    I wanted to edit the rules of the Scottish League 2, but it is the first time I use this program. Does anybody know how to do this?

    Bug on FM Editor live version + FM14 game 14.3.0
    - the editor is not fetching a correct value for "Wage Budget (€ Yearly)" in "Finances" window when you are trying to edit a foreign team. It is displaying the value "-2,147,483,648". Any attempt to save anything further on in the opened team window will end up in a game crash upon saving it.
    Note: Foreign team is a team outside of the player selected country.
    i.e. To reproduce the crash, you can do the following:
    - select one League and a team from one country (let's say Italy-Juventus)
    - save the game and you will see there is no problem saving it
    - open the FM Editor, "Load game" and search for any team which is not from your selected country (in our given example, pick any team which is not from Italy - i.e. Real Madrid)
    - go to Finances window and you will see the wage budget "-2,147,483,648"
    - press "Save" button in any tab of editor then go into FM14 game and try to save the game. You will receive a crash dmp.
    The FM14 game is crashing even if i am trying to switch that wage budget to a normal value (i.e. 10,000,000)
    This issue with wrong wage budget value is blocking the usage of everything you are trying to edit in that team. Like "Destroy" option: My current workaround for this is to "destroy" each player of that team in individual window by searching them instead of searching and opening the team window. This is not crashing my game. This is how i know for sure that "wage budget value" is the cause.

    It's possible to edit players morale in fmc?
  • pzd's avatar

    @Username - No need to get rude about it.

    @mcswifty - Some further debugging is needed to resolve the root cause issue before we can re-add.
  • mcswifty's avatar
    Any plans to get the ability to edit attributes back in the near future?
    At least the hidden ones?
  • mcswifty's avatar
    I have the newest version of FM14 14.3.1 - auto update via steam is enabled. But FMEL keep saying "Football Manager isn't running" when trying to load up my game.

    Have tried with both full football manager and FMC - same result.
    Running Win7. And yes save game is loaded. :)

    Edit: Nevermind - problem solved.
    Found out that you have to run editor as administrator. :D

    @thomas.hornsletten - Its a known issue that you can't transfer players in FMEL
  • thomas.hornsletten's avatar
    Hi, I am not able to move players between teams? I have changed the team on the contract, and if i reload the new team are there, but there is no change in the game.
  • marvels's avatar

    As stated in the release notes and as I have mentioned before. Its only compatible with 14.3.0 and 14.3.1.

    Why not just update your game through steam?
  • manveru78's avatar
    I retry....
    I don't need a FMEL compatible with FM 14.3.X, but with FM 14.1.X ...

    Where I can download a FMEL14 compatible with this one?
  • marvels's avatar
    @Giorgos7osfp - Steam international version.

    @Amicco - Download, Unzip, Run.

    @AlinCostyn95 - Download page should be up.

    @Avatarmanveru78 - Compatible with 14.3.0 and 14.3.1 international steam version.

    @ModernSnipe97 - make sure FM2014 is running and a game is loaded.
  • ModernSnipe97's avatar
