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
A vast amount of player details can be edited, including value, all attributes, abilities, contract data, reputation, positions, preferred moves and so on. You can also heal injuries, destroy a player (fitness to 1%) and remove bans.
Freeze Player Attributes
You can now freeze attributes so they remain unaffected by CA, PA or training.
Edit Competitions
Extensive editing for competition, with more editable data than other real-time editor.
Edit Staff
Scout for and Edit Non-Playing staff like Coaches, Assistant Managers, etc.
Mass Edit Teams
Quick-actions to Heal Team, Remove Unhappy, Remove Bans and Destroy Team.

    @stylesk89: Did you restart FMSE after importing the license?
  • stylesk89's avatar
    Just purchased the license for FM19. I now get a message when i try to load saying 'failed to load Football Manager data; Could not find a compatible Football Manager Version.

    It was loading before i purchased the license!!

    @haris: No such option yet, but it's a doable feature request for our future updates.

    @The Champion One: Only English language is currently available. The plan is to offer more languages this season though. French will definitely be one of the first to add.
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @Ettienne: it's no refunds because instead of us adding DRM that would require you to be online every time you launch the app, we decided against it. It's also in line with EU law on online software sales. We do offer refunds if you can show us a bug that we can't fix. And if we're not aware of a bug, how can we fix it? You do understand that we don't offer refunds for features you thought we had, that we never advertised. You can use the app for free anyway unless you want to edit. But guess whose comment is "fishy"?
  • Ettienne's avatar
    Don't waste your money guys, if a sales page says "no refunds" you know it's fishy. I fell for it, it's not working properly.
  • harisnuriakhlaq's avatar
    Is their any way I can edit a club's rivalries? I simply want to remove a club's rivalry with certain opposition clubs - I know the official in-game editor lets you, but until that comes out I was wondering if you could do it through this edior, or even through Sports Interactive folders?
  • The Champion One's avatar
    Hi! I've bought this software and it's the first time I use this editor and I would like to change the language. If someone can help me! (Sorry for my bad English)
  • Stam's avatar
    @qaz182: A look at the FMSE forum tells a different story. Also I've personally spent time to answer your questions on live chat the day after Beta launch.
    But I agree that people should explore the app to see what's possible and what isn't before getting a license - may as well ask here or in the forum for clarification. As much is free.
  • qaz182's avatar
    Guys, be really really careful about knowing what features are available and what works and what doesn't before ordering.

    Support is virtually non-existent and you can't undo the transaction once it's done

    @Bart: First 3 patch updates (including Beta launch) have taken between 2-5 hours each. We've always been reasonably quick with this kind of updates. I believe what we lacked last season was feature updates; hoping we can roll out more new features this season.
  • Bartdude's avatar
    Fairly fast update guys. FMSE will succeed or fail based on the speed of updating,so it's good to see a new-found commitment to the product.
  • Ozyy's avatar
    now i see its because FM update. thank's Stam! ill do that.
  • Stam's avatar
    Ultimately we actually did a double update tonight! :D

    FMSE19 v2.1.0.1
    - Added support for FM Touch 19.0.3
    - Fixed an issue with IGA on the previous update

    @Ozyy: Simply update to latest version, either via the auto-updater within the app or the "Download Now" button on this very page.
  • Ozyy's avatar
    hi. i buy the license of the FMSE 19 and just work correctly for two days, now its saying "could not find a compatible football manager version" why is this appening?
  • Bartdude's avatar
    sabar_subur. If you bothered to read the information regarding FMSE you would know that there will always be a short delay in updating FMSE whenever Si updates FM.,so stop harassing the developer.
  • Stam's avatar
    Change of plans. We opted for a single update tonight in the end, which adds support for 19.0.3 and introduces nation editing!

    FMSE19 v2.1.0.0
    - Added Nation editing (more Nations properties will follow in further updates)
    - Edit Nation general data, teams, Kits and Agreements
    - Added support for FM19.0.3 (FM Touch will follow in patch update)
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick Update: FMSE19 will have a double update today. First one will arrive shortly to make it compatible with new patch 19.0.3 and second one will introduce nation editing!
  • sabar_subur's avatar
    i update the FM19 (betta version) on steam, now i cant use my paid version of FMSE19 because "it couldnt find compatible FM save data". Please fix this issues
  • pfq's avatar
    Hi, I have already bought the 2018 FM scout license, I have to buy it for 2019?
  • Stam's avatar
    @acary08: No, you can't. You can freely download and install the app to explore its option.

    @Nocturna: I've sent you a private message.

    @bbv29: We'll look into morale. There's a list of most important things we'll be working on during this month and the next.
  • acary08's avatar
    Can I edit the names of the reporters and such with this?
  • Nocturna's avatar
    I sent a request for resent my license to [email protected], but got no answer. I bought a new one.
  • bbv29's avatar
    @Stam: Could it be addon to FMSE (Morale) so could mann get it to Exellence???
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick Update: The "Buy Now" link will now also work if you try to open it in new tab.
  • Stam's avatar
    @bbv: Morale is not currently available in FMSE.

    @mattw: How can you try to install if it doesn't even download? That makes no sense. Show a screenshot of "install bar turns red". In the meantime, try disabling your antivirus and run the FMSE installer again.
