    Hello! How can we disabe Brexit with FMSE20? Thank you!
  • Heureux's avatar
    Did not support Version 20.0.4
  • Pendorchete25's avatar
    Does this editor work for the update 19.1.1?
    If it doesn't which other editor would you recommend me that works for this specific update
  • marc54's avatar
    Congratulations for the update!
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE19 has been updated to be compatible with yesterday's 19.3.6 patch, as well as the latest version of FM19 on Game Pass. Enjoy!

    On a side note, there won't be further updates to FMSE19 - unless some unexpected new FM19 patch comes to surface again.
    We'll be switching our focus towards FMSE20 and look for ways to make prominent progress consistently, because during the FMSE19 lifecycle we didn't manage to implement as many new features as we wanted. User support via the forums and via email is an another area we'll be looking to improve.

    Need update please: "Failed to load football manager data: Could not find a compatible Football Manager Version"

    need a update for new FM Version
  • RoversRob's avatar
    Was working fine on Xbox gamepass version for weeks, now just getting the message "Failed to load football manager data: Could not find a compatible Football Manager Version".

    FAQ says that you only ever get this message if you are signed up to beta builds of the game on steam, and gives you instructions on how to turn these off (on steam). Seeing as I'm not playing through steam though it doesnt really help.

    Tried uninstalling, re-downloading and reinstalling from this page in case of new version, but still the same message. Shame, was a good alternative to genie scout for windows gamepass users.

    VAT is included but I still need to pay 36.78 PLN (9.36 USD = FMSE + 2x VAT (23% in Poland) instead of 30.99 PLN (7.88 USD = FMSE + 23% VAT)!
  • seadx's avatar
    It would be nice if you say "For using this shit you need to pay" … u wrote it like it is free than cant use anything nice .. :P
  • Mayzie's avatar
    Does this work alongside Genie Scout or if I use this to make alterations in game, will that mean that Genie Scout no longer works on that particular save?
  • Slayer's avatar
    Is fitness and condition cheat avalible in this editor (setting to 32500 for both like in FMRTE)?
  • munna88's avatar

    @jonnycade im having the same issue mate!
  • johnnycade's avatar
    Hi @Stam, i purchase the license for FMSE19 after I used it to fiddle around my save. However, after i purchased the license and try to load up my game save, it keeps showing this error message, Failed to load Football Manager data: Could not find a compatible Football Manager Version , Please help! I have the game on steam, game is still working fine just that i cannot get the FMSE to load my save
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE19 has been updated to be compatible with the latest patch on Xbox Game Pass for PC which was made available on August 22nd.

    @Sajidoor: The process is automated. After successfully completing your order, a link to a license file will be emailed to you within a couple of minutes. FMSE is not built to work with pirate versions, so try it before committing to getting a license. You can download/install/use it for free, except being able to save your edits.

    Hey guys, I was wondering if u could help me out
    how does the whole buying fm scout editor process go?
    do I just pay 6 dollars and they send me a license code via email?
    And does it work with pirated FM versions?
  • Kledon the Pug's avatar
    YES , it works with pirate FM versions
  • Stam's avatar
    @autokz: That's not a bug report though. Not finding some players is most likely because they've turned into player/staff type which FMSE doesn't read. Thanoulas would normally add it last month, but I'm sure he must have had personal reasons not to finish that yet. When exactly does it crash for you? And do you get a specific error message?

    @Peter_Lundager: For Mac check out MacAssistant RT.

    @r2d2: One time upgrade for the lifetime of the 2019 versioning. That means you'll need a new license for FM20.

    @Invektiva: Most common reason for that is because you paid with PayPal and your primary email address there is different from the one you're checking. Either that or you made a typo. Please send me a private message with your name and/or email address so I can look into it.

    @GiannelliImbula: Thanks for the suggestion and the kind words.

    @whathappenedtomyaccount: Currently no. We intend to add currency option for GBP, EUR and USD.

    @WonderTomee: If you're not on beta version, then perhaps you're on the Xbox Game Pass for PC version? Can't think of another reason why FMSE wouldn't load your game.

    @ErdinBechir: I'll ask thanoulas if there's an extra step you need to do in the player's relationships tab.
  • autokz's avatar
    A lot of bugs! I can't find some players through FMSE, but they are in the game. Often the FMSE is crashes.
