FMSE Features

FMSE20 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 20.

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.

Important: The FMS Editor is free to download, install, use the scouting features and explore all the editing options. You will need a paid license in order to be able to save your edits.

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!

    Hi there,

    Still waiting for an answer to the question:

    "If I buy this version, will it be able to edit FM 21?"
  • AndreasNestor's avatar
    How do you guys deal with other players bugging out and changing teams/free transfers after editing one of your own players? Do you move them/swap them back or do you just leave it as it is and hope it doesn't create problems for you later on?
    So annoyed that it still happens after so many different versions all year long.
  • redemptor's avatar
