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

    @Kobe4evr: I'm guessing you're getting an error that stops the setup before it can finish. Disable your antivirus during installation, see if that helps.

    @Charea: Type FMSE19 in Windows start menu search, right-click on it (assuming it can find it) and select "Run as administrator".
  • Kobe4evr's avatar
    i cant install FMSE at all. Literally keeps crashing during the installation. Any help?
  • Charea's avatar
    When I load the FMSE 19 it just saying "loading game data" and nothing happens.
    everything is greyed out.
    I followed the instructions.
    any help?

    FMSE Hotfix out now!

    @Alee: You could add an EU second nationality to the non-EU player via the relationships tab.
  • Alee's avatar
    How can I fix visa permission for non-EU players with FMSE?
  • Stam's avatar
    @Peranco: I've just checked with Thanos. He's aware and working on a fix which we’ll release today. This must have slipped in with yesterday's update.

    @FMaddict: I'm afraid that's not possible.

    @brengy: Is that happening when you click "Continue" in-game while having some window(s) open on FMSE?
  • Peranco's avatar
    @stam: i start the game and load my actual save. then i start fmse 2.140, load the game and search for players. then i switch back to game and proceed some days. when i now go back to fmse it crashes...
  • brengy68's avatar
    seems to be working fine now , not sure what happened
    Edit: nope playing up again , just won't stay working for longer than a couple of minutes
  • FMaddict3970412's avatar
    Would I be able to edit league sorting rules with this? I made a custom database, forgot to set the sorting rules, and am now halfway through a season and just noticed. Trying see if I can find an editor that will allow me to fix this so I don't have start over.
    Looks like that is a no. Bummer.
  • brengy68's avatar
    just having an issue with the program not working, it stops responding straight away after loading up my save game.
    when i try to search competitions , list comes up then freezes when i click on comp i want to look at.
  • Stam's avatar
    New version is up! Promised you a double update today.
    New features in v2.1.4.0:
    • Added Human Manager "Allow Squad Registration Anytime" Option
    • Added Human Manager "Allow Squad Numbers Registration Anytime" Option
    • Added Nation Importance option
    • Added Nation State of Development option

    @AngryUserGhost: Learn to read. And don't write in all caps.

    @joeleusk15 @rcm: Latest FMSE19 and latest FM19 means it should work. Make sure you have FM19 open with your save loaded. If you're opted to FM19 private beta builds, we don't support those.

    @Peranco: Not sure I understand what you're trying to say. FMSE crashes when you reload your save in-game?

    @irond1990: You need .NET framework 4.6.1
  • joeleusk15's avatar
    I have the same problem
    @rcm: Hi, both of the fmse and the fm is up to date, but I cannot load my database, it cant find a compatible FM version.:

    my fmse always crashes when it try to reload the game (new day f.e.)
  • s2t3orke's avatar
    @Jamie Aubrey, makes sense. Thanks
  • irond1990's avatar
    why in my installation of fms19 i have this error (0x800713ec-asia)?
  • Jamie Aubrey's avatar
    @s2t3orke I believe those are regens, or at least thats how I see them as they are usually 16/17
  • s2t3orke's avatar
    Is there a reason why some players are highlighted green and some are not?
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE19 updated to work with the 19.1.2 patch. We'll have a double update today, so you can expect a new version tonight with a mini feature addition.
    Apologies for the delay with this particular update.
  • Stam's avatar
    New patch 19.1.2 was released last night. I had a social obligation at the time and couldn't be around to alert Thanos fast enough, so the next update will be delivered later this morning.

    @Jamie Aubrey: Makes no difference whether you registered a license or not. New patch means we must update the app. It's one and the same app.

    @kenny3: Eugene has no involvement in this app. I was against premium editors, but sadly the free editor model simply doesn't work. Read this.

    @fdjongfan: It should only work with playable competitions in your save. Try it to find a playable competition in FMSE and double-click on it to see the relevant options.

    @geauxfish: There is MacAssistant RT for Mac OS users.
  • Dominator11's avatar
    When will the new version be available?
  • Jamie Aubrey's avatar
    I can no longer load the database using the free version
  • Peranco's avatar
    and again a new fm update. thanks for updating FMSE
  • Ozyy's avatar
    hi, today was released a new update for FM 19, and now the FMSE is saying " cold not find a compatible version of FM 19" and i try to update de FMSE and says "FMSE 19 is the currently the newest version available"

    any idea?

    and we cant change the weight and height of anyone. fix that please.
  • kenny3's avatar
    Firstly i must say this is no disrespect to hard and dedicated works of Eugene but Stamatis was also against to pay to be able to use an editor previously.
