    @Spanish Red don't buy it on steam.
    I bought my game for € 18.
    @polyvlos95 buy FMSE, at least you're helping who make the had work, not a campany that don't update (almost) nothing since they bought the FM rights to SEGA.
  • polyvios95's avatar
    Hello i would like to make a save that can change player's nationality and potential ability. Should i buy this or in-game editor?
  • Stam's avatar
    @Spanish Red: We were the first site who walked down that path. We created a free real-time editor before (called FMEL). Sadly that model doesn't work because people who make this happen simply can't maintain such project at a high quality level for long; they either lose interest (due to silly and disrespectful comments) or have to invest their time elsewhere (paid work). I wrote a relevant blog post on the matter 2 years ago.

    Spanish Red: So they should spend hundreds of hours developing and updating for free? We live in capitalism.
  • Spanish Red's avatar
    This, along with FMRTE, is basically a cheat tool. What's worse is that they are both two of the only "add-ons" for which people are expected to pay. Football Manager is expensive enough without others making money out of somebody else's project. Either distribute it entirely free of charge or bin it.

    FMSE was updated for 19.3.2 last night.

    @Lacio: Do you have FM19 open with your save loaded?
  • Lacio's avatar

    Quick Update: Thanos informed me he was unable to update FMSE last night and also today. He has been upgrading his Windows computer, which won't even start. In the meantime, the 19.3.2 patch came out like an hour ago. He'll make an effort to put together his older computer (now in parts) and update FMSE tonight.

    @conor14: Have you tried FMSE License Recovery area?
  • conor14's avatar

  • Stam's avatar
    Quick Update: We're aware of today's 19.3.1 patch. Thanos should be able to prepare a new FMSE version later tonight. At least that's what he told me :)

    @TqX^: Open Windows Start Menu. Find FMSE19. Right-click on it and select "Run as administrator".
