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.

  • sabar_subur's avatar

  • AgentGarcia's avatar
    @ Stam
    Thank you, now it works. I did not open the FM ;-)
    One request: is it possible to change the Player Characters contract? It would be great if you could give yourself a 5 year contract...
  • Stam's avatar
    @AgentGarcia: Latest FMSE19 version ( should work fine with latest FM19 version (19.1.0). Can't think of any other reason why it shouldn't. You need to have FM19 open with your save loaded in it before you try to load on FMSE19.

    @Nobility: Interesting choice (swapping a contracted with an uncontracted player). I've passed this to Thanos to investigate as it sounds like a bug.

    Hi there! I just purchased the FM 19 Scout Editor.
    Unfortunately, I cannot open Savegames. It always says: " Failed to load manager data. Could not find a compatible Football Manager version "
    What can I do?
    I bought the game originally at Gamesplanet.
    I just read the FAQ. As a solution it says that I participate at a Steam Beta and I had to stop it in order to load a save game in the editor. But it doesn´t work :-( I do not participate in any Steam Client Beta...
    Anyone an idea whats wrong?
  • Nobility's avatar
    When I swap the teammate with a person in a free transfer. The player shows he is in my team however I can not pick the player for any game and he does not show up in squad view.

    @Snusen: Try disabling your antivirus if you're installing a new version (and FMSE19 is already installed before).
  • Snusen's avatar
    Anyone else getting the Setup Failed error? 0x80070643 - Fatal error during Installation?
  • kfnielsen's avatar
    So fast u are
    Big thanks Stam
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE19 has been updated to v2.1.1.0 which adds compatibility for today's 19.1.0 patch on both FM and FM Touch. We didn't anticipate another patch before November 2nd, so this is just a patchfix update. Next one should have a feature addition as well.
  • kadu_roots's avatar
    Update please :(
  • lijieneo's avatar
    Take your time! and update, please!
  • kfnielsen's avatar

  • xirlipipa's avatar

  • Stam's avatar
    You guys know the drill. Wait a few hours until we update FMSE to be compatible with new patch.
  • sabar_subur's avatar
    And here we go again, another update from steam and the apps cant load the data.
  • Peranco's avatar
    there was a update of fm19. failed to load fm data...
  • stylesk89's avatar
    @Stam, Yes i did. I also started my computer.
  • Stam's avatar
    @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!!
  • Stam's avatar
    @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.

    @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"?
