FMSE Features

FMSE19 is packed with a plethora of options and running lightning fast. The focus is on the editing side of things. The scouting capabilities are limited. For more advanced scouting, it's recommended to try Genie Scout 19.

We'll aim to roll out frequent updates to introduce new functionality.

Whenever there's a new official patch out, we'll make an effort to update FMSE 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 other editing tools out there.

Here's an overview of the currently available key features...

Become unsackable! No matter what happens, the board will never fire you. Have no fear of getting sacked ever again!
Nation Editing
Edit Nation general data, teams, Kits and Agreements. For example, you can disable Brexit by adding England back to EU.
In-Game Assistant
See hidden player attributes, CA/PA & actual left/right foot values right in the game (attributes screen). This is an exclusive feature no other tool for Windows is offering!
Edit Club Finances
Edit all kinds of club finances, such as budgets, ticket prices, sugar daddy, sponsors, debts and more.
Edit Club Info
Fiddle with year founded, facilities, youth recruitment, morale, attendances.
Edit Players

    YES , it works with pirate FM versions

    @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.

    A lot of bugs! I can't find some players through FMSE, but they are in the game. Often the FMSE is crashes.
  • Peter_Lundager's avatar
    is there one for mac too?
  • r2d2's avatar
    one time upgrade? does this mean you dont have to buy a new for fm2020 when it comes out?
  • Invektiva's avatar
    Hello! I bought FMSE 19, but did not get a license. WTF?
  • GiannelliImbula's avatar
    is there not a way to search for release clauses for foreign teams? would be a helpful edition. other than that, love it
  • whathappenedtomyaccount's avatar
    Is there not a way to change the player values to usd?
  • WonderTomee's avatar
    I can't do anything with it because it can't find matching database with the 19.3.5 version and with the newest version of FMSE19. Tried to download it 3 times. Any ideas what should i do? (NO, I don't use beta version.)
  • ErdinBechir's avatar
    Every time I swap a player with another player from another team, that said player does not actually move to my club. Even though it shows that they are in my squad, before starting a game it says "XX player is already involved in another game today" because he also appears in his original team's squad.

    How do I fix this swap player issue?
  • Stam's avatar
    @Andrei2698: It should work for 19.1 but you can download and try if it does without a license.

    @sanya999: I doubt it will work for pirate FM versions, we don't use nor test those. But you can check if it can load your game.

    @LondomTom: Do you have FM19 open with your save loaded? Are you playing via Xbox Game Pass for PC?

    @yukiiii: Most likely because he turned into player/staff and FMSE can't read that person type. The plan is to add this functionality by July though.

    @ogden: Can't do that, but why would anyone want to sack a manager?
  • Andrei2698's avatar
    Is this working for the 19.1 version?
  • sanya999's avatar

    Hello, I got the Windows Store version FM2019 (currently running 19.3.5-1228909 (m.e v1931) and FMSE19 can't find a compatiable manager version. (I stupidly broguth the license before checking)
  • yukiiii's avatar
    Hello, why there is no Ronaldo when I search him or enter Juventus?
  • ogden's avatar
    Is there anyway to sack a manager? Also If I give a staff member a new job it doesn't seem to work, Any ideas?
  • Stam's avatar
    If you haven't noticed, FMSE19 was updated last night.
    On a side note, I've asked Thanos to add the player/staff person type as the next feature (as older players who become player/staff can't be read by FMSE so far), and hopefully this should happen during this month.

    @Koon: This is the relevant FAQ section with possible reasons for setup error.
  • Koon's avatar
    @Stam setup error 0x80070643, i see the faq but nothing working, any ideas?

  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: Thanos informed me that the new FMSE19 version - compatible with yesterday's 19.3.5 patch - should be ready later today.

    @codefordey: With FM Touch on PC/Mac, yes. With FM Touch on tablet, no.
