FMSE Features

Even though the initial alpha version is missing plenty of features that we're still working on adding, it's already packed with a plethora of options and running lightning fast. The focus is clearly on the editing side of things. The scouting part will grow in due time.

Once we reach beta, FMSE17 shall have a much wider range of functionality to meet the needs of our most demanding users. That won't take as long as you might expect, so make sure to vote for the feature you wish to see next.

We intend to issue weekly updates, so there will be something new to look forward to every single week.

Whenever there's a new official patch out, we aim to update within a couple of hours. And while update time is dependent on external factors (such as patch complexity or other unpredictable situations), we'll do our best to deliver updates faster than any other third party tool out there.

    Hey there stam, will you ever add the the ability to change league rep on FMse17? or make FMSE18 compatible with FMse18? im curious as i really don't like FM18.
  • LCpl75's avatar
    Yeah, why is this thing suddenly asking for a license? It's updated, it accepts my license and then when I try to save changes tells me I'm unlicensed.
  • frazermesquita's avatar
    it says buy a license please help
  • clamel's avatar
    If you find a "double" among players when you got your game started, can he be deleted in some way with this editor ?
    Sadly very common when mixing DBs.
  • Bartdude's avatar
    When I refer to "reboot" I mean reloading the save but it's not that simple because you still have to search and reload any screens you previously had displayed and it's a pain having to do that every minute. Also having to hit the Windows key to return to the desktop to edit is a faff too,either that or run FM in Windows mode,which I won't. I'm sorry for the negative comments but the Si IGE is superior because it performs the tasks of FMSE and more all on the game screen and therefore is far more user friendly. It's also cheaper ! Unfortunately it reminds me of the old days using FMRTE but things have moved on so I'm struggling to understand why someone would develop something like this when the inbuilt IGE does what FMSE currently can't and all other edits in a much more convenient way. Regardless I wish you luck with it and will be interested to see any future developments.

    @Bartdude: I'm sorry you feel disappointed, but your reasoning seems a bit unfair.

    This very page is showcasing what FMSE is capable of. You can also install it and see all the different options it offers without having to purchase a license. The licence makes it possible to save your edits, but you can still explore what is possible to do without having that.

    As far as I know the IGE is also non-refundable, but that's declared above and on the other landing page. The part about VAT is explained as well.

    The player transfer feature is on the pipeline for next version (thanoulas will hopefully prepare that til the end of this week).

    When you move a day, it simply asks you to reload the save to ensure there won't be any edits done on possibly stale data (as that could cause problems). You don't have to reboot. And loading a save takes a mere couple of seconds.

    If you have any other thoughts or requests, let us know.

    @juanpiari: Thanks for posting. Localization is something we have on our immediate plans. I'm confident we can introduce more languages before FM18 is made available.

    @nir20137 @percy1872: Did FMSE work for you in the past and stopped recognizing your version of FM17 after some recent update? Do you have the latest Steam version 64-bit?
  • Bartdude's avatar
    Very disappointing !! Firstly you cannot see what this software is capable of until you pay,which is NON-REFUNDABLE !! The program itself does less than the the Si IGE i.e. you cannot transfer or loan players to other clubs which is the main reason I use the Si IGE !! I only paid for FM Scout Editor 2017 because the Si IGE mysteriously disappeared for most subscribers on Friday but now a workaround has thankfully restored it. The other irritating thing about the FM Editor is you have to reboot it every time the game moves on a day !! I feel totally ripped off and down by £5.99 ! (Yep they also fail to tell you there's £1 of V.A.T. added to the published price !)
  • juanpiari's avatar
    If the FM Scout Editor 2017 were translated into Spanish as if the FMRTE is, maybe I would think about acquiring a license. Other non-English speaking users may think alike
  • nir20137's avatar
    Mine is also not recognizing the version of the football manager ... please update this
  • percy1872's avatar
    Hi, its saying it cant find a compatible football manager version when i try loading a game
  • Stam's avatar
    @HiveKuti: For FM17, not really. We'll make an effort for FM18 though.
  • HiveKuti's avatar
    Any hope of getting a 32 bit compatible version any time soon?
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick Update: Sadly we won't be able to release any new versions before September. FMSE author thanoulas is between countries again, but should finally return home on September 1st.

    @johnj006: I can link you to previous versions if you still need one. Send me a private message.

    @barou78: After purchasing, you should shortly receive an email with a download link to your license file.

    @stowky: The support team behind the [email protected] email, normally replies within a day. So I assume all was sorted on time for you.
  • johnj006's avatar
    Is it possible to roll back to the version that worked with v17.3.1?
  • barou78's avatar
    Hi, were is my registration license file for my FMSE17 (v0612)?
  • stowky's avatar
    Hi, I bought FM Scout Editor 2017 one month ago. I lost my license file. What can I do to get it back? I wrote to [email protected] but I don't have got a reply. Sorry for my english.
  • Stam's avatar
    @viper270: You need to import the license file from the Registration tab within FMSE.
  • viper270's avatar
    have the License but when i install the fm scout editor there's no where to put the License
  • Stam's avatar
    @dionleno1990: There's only English language available for FMSE so far. We plan on initiating a translation campaign in the near future though.
  • dionleno1990's avatar
    Is there a PT-BR translation?
  • pickshield's avatar
    @stam sorry I'm suck a noob.. My virus program blocked it. It works now. Thanks :)
  • Stam's avatar
    @pickshield: I personally tested the latest version and it works fine. Could you please report your issues in the FMSE forum? Provide some screenshots if you can.
  • pickshield's avatar
    doesn't work at all here. Tried to update it, nothing. Then to delete the program and install it again, just keeps crashing
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE17 has just been updated to add support for yesterday's 17.3.2 patch.
  • isildrae's avatar
    @Stam: Yeah, was really odd. Didn't make any other changes. Next day however, everything started working again. So........hoorar!

    Thanks for taking the time to reply anyway Stam.
