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!

    i didnt lost my license, but i try now the "license recovery page" and says "No license found for the given parameters." how? i put the correct mail and for the FMSE19 and nothing found to this parameters.. i dont understand..:/
  • xander.pelican's avatar
    Hi. I've just downloaded the updated version (19.2.0). There's a problem with trying to edit the clubs' chairman, it always leads to jamming FM and crashing FMSE. Can you fix this? Tks beforehand.
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE has been updated for the 19.2.0 patch.
    On a side note, localization prepping is complete. That means we'll soon start inviting translators to help us add more languages to the app.

    @Ozyy: Did you try the license recovery page? You may use your license on the new computer. If you lost the file, use license recovery to get a fresh download link via email.

    @jakthalad: The only possible reason I can think of is that those people changed their person type from player to player/staff. And that is a type FMSE doesn't read/support yet.

    @Lenzar: In fact, end price went down by a small fraction because previously it didn't include VAT and now it does. I've already answered that question about free editors a few times since FMSE17 was launched.

    @spanos93: If I can recall, we solved this over chat (related to typo in the email address).

    @Basgsar10 @matanhen: Please try disabling your antivirus and see if that allows installation to proceed as intended.

    @Nobility: I've passed this on to Thanos.

    @Marko12101983: We're late introducing the weekly license giveaway. So I'm considering to hand out 4-5 licenses before Xmas. Send me a PM with your email address.

    fmse 19 when to update?
  • jakthalad69's avatar
    Hi Stam! First off, great bit of software, works perfectly and allows me to correct what I think are the games injustices against me! haha
    One slight bug, which I know you have discussed before but I cannot find the comment, when I search my team certain older players cannot be found and I cannot search their name either. I have just noticed it with a player who has turned 34 a couple of game months ago (I am not saying this is the age where it starts its just what I have observed). Can you advise what the fix is for this?

  • Lenzar's avatar
    Price goes up. Whatever happened to 'we don't believe you should pay for 3rd party editors'?
  • Ozyy's avatar
    I buy a new computer, and now when i try to load the license from my documents folder, the FMSE stop working. any idea?

    When I install the editor has an error 0x80070652
  • Nobility's avatar
    When I change the player's value and forward the game one day. The player's value will reset and go back to the default.
  • Marko12101983's avatar

    You don't have to bite my head off. In my country it is not possible to buy a license for FMSE 19. Hence the question for @Stam.
  • Justice's avatar
    @Marko12101983, licenses aren't just handed out freely. Why should one person get a license for free when everybody else has to pay for one?
  • Marko12101983's avatar

    Is it possible to get a free license?
  • matanhen's avatar
    I can not install the software and run it. help please?
  • Marko12101983's avatar
    How to save your edits when it asks me for a license which I don't have?

    Help, please.
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: FMSE will be ready for translation into more languages next week. Thanos is finishing the English language file over the weekend. If you're interested in contributing a new language, please message me. In the meantime, I expect a new patch to be released before the weekend; if that happens, we'll promptly roll out a patchfix as always.

    @4000LIEGE: Yes, you can. To download / install / explore the app is free. Make sure you see for yourself all the available options it has before investing in a license.

    @right_winger: 1) Club names are not editable.
    2) Club names are not editable. It doesn’t do anything to the game.
    3) FMSE does not alter game files, so that’s impossible. All changes are temporary in the database and only affect the current loaded game.

    @Kove4evr: Have a look at this screenshot for all available options.
  • 4000LIEGE's avatar
    Hello, I dont know FMS well. Can we change the nationality of a player with this software?
  • right_winger's avatar
    This editor has a serious fault:
    1) club names did not change in the game after editing
    2) despite the above failing, now in the game the drop down list of clubs (eg. from one league) has FULL club names instead of short ones which is very annoying
    3) the same problem appears in other saves so backup file is pointless as it has ruined the game anyway...

    It seems the failed attempt on editing changed some setting responsible for showing short/full names but now I am not able to change it back manually.

    Disappointed & wasted money, not good...
  • Kobe4evr's avatar
    can you change league rules and registration, such as registration restrictions in for example, the premier league team registration needing 8 home grown players with this tool?
  • Stam's avatar
    @oikonomologos: Not currently possible. If we can figure out how to make it work, we'll add that.

    @GeeGeeW @kenz24 @flamma: Try to run the app as admin. Open Windows start menu, find FMSE19, right-click on it and select "Run as administrator".

    @heirtothestar: We'd love to add that, but don't know how this is calculated yet. In the meantime, you could use the "Freeze Attributes" feature.

    @Meazer: That's odd. We'll look into it.

    @WhiskyPriest: Good shout. We'll add those as soon as we're done with localization. We're currently preparing the app to be translated into more languages.
  • oikonomologos's avatar
    Can I make an Ineligible player because he played in two different clubs in a season, eligible with this tool?
  • GeeGeeW's avatar
    @kenz24 Exactly the same problem here, Just keeps 'Loading game data' and won't change, can't find any fix
  • kenz24's avatar
    cant load any game it just keeps on loading..
  • heirtothestar's avatar
    any feature like "suggested ca" that the same as si'in-game editor ? because after you edit any attributes, you have to increase ca too or else new edited attributes will revert after playing for a few weeks...
  • Meazer's avatar
    You cannot change a players height and weight as of the current patch.
