    @Lawnmowerman: I wasn't involved in the actual coding of FMEL before, therefore it wasn't my decision to disable attribute editing. It was the people complaining for attributes going berserk after editing. Whatever the choice, people will complain anyway.
  • Lawnmowerman's avatar
    Disagree with you, Stam. Rare and very occasional attribute restructuring - especially mental - can be a very positive experience But it's your site, and what you say goes.
  • Stam's avatar
    @nyasser: Attribute editing is disabled in the last version. There were problems with it and it's best if attributes remain view only.
  • nyasser's avatar
    I have a problem, why I can't editing technical and mental attributes? or it's just can't??

  • cjcowen94's avatar
    if I had the info for the editor I could try and help with the process
  • Stam's avatar
    We are actually working on FMEL for FM16. The original author is back this season, but I can't promise you when it might be ready. Whenever it's ready though, you'll find it here exclusively and free as always.
  • downloadkct's avatar
    No, the FMEL creator left the project months ago.
  • Lawnmowerman's avatar
    Hi Stam,
    New game, new FM year!
    Key question: can you help all the fans - will there be a FMEL for FM16?
  • Nikogarofalo's avatar
    Is there going to be a 2016 version of the FMEL?
    Oh, and is it free?
  • tosodoula's avatar
    you must run the app as admin to work
  • Donne86's avatar
    Would probably be good, if it worked! It doesnt even open the app when trying to connect... Anybody who can fix this?? Any help or comment is appreciated??
  • luqeem's avatar
    Hi there, I wanna know why when I run and load game FMEL15 it says "Football Manager isn't running" eventhough i was playing FM?
  • Zarmael's avatar
    I need a bit of help. If i raise players current ability does it raise his stats also? Coz he is better player then? Or no? Also if it does not then how does that current ability and potential ability works? What if I have player with low stats but current ability of 199. Will he be world class or just average?
  • azkero's avatar
    So I have used this feature, once to change name of my stadium and once I updated my windows to windows 10 I have negative 1,800,000,000 on balance, how the hell? Can we get an update for this tool really quick so it is compatible with windows 10?
  • Aguero's avatar
    I play in the Turkish League and there I can play with 5 foreigners is it possible to change it??
  • PaulWoods98's avatar
    |the app won't even let me open it up. I downloaded the recommended settings but it still won't open for me. I'm not sure what else I've got to do?
  • Stam's avatar
    I'll say it again in case you haven't read a previous comment reply of mine or didn't notice the credits above. I'm not involved in the coding of this app, therefore I'm unable to help you with any errors. Sadly, the developers of FMEL don't seem to have any interest in releasing a new version for FM15. I've just made a final effort to convince them into addressing the remaining bugs, but most likely you'll have to accept that the current version will be the last one.

    Regarding some judgmental comments I've read, I totally agree with Lawnmowerman.
  • Dinandd1994's avatar

    I have exact the same error. would be nice if someone could help us!? :S

    Have anyone found any solution on how to search for national teams?
  • Lawnmowerman's avatar
    A message for joao_santos007. A little more respect is due to those who take their time for FREE to make this game better for us. Sure there are errors, that's human, but most of them are made by users not thinking or using the work properly. If you don't like it then just GO and PAY elsewhere, don't moan.
  • omaurtorsac's avatar
    Good evening, I just wanted to tell you that, many things, some explanations they gave is that if left enable to change values, the editor is going to fail (read the comments below, don't be lazy).

    @akinfenwa that happens when you modify values of some team or player who is not in the playable leagues (happened to me)
  • joao_santos007's avatar
    This FMLE have so many error´s, i use FMRTE is better, but the only think bad in FMRTE is you have to pay a license for using.
  • akinfenwa's avatar
  • BAD-RELIGION's avatar
    Lots of errors, can't even use :(
