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!
Nation Editing
Edit Nation general data, teams, Kits and Agreements. For example, you can disable Brexit by adding England back to EU.

    @dzeta: Only English so far, but we have prepared the app for being translated. We'll definitely start working on translations this year.
    @alakhai: Loads fine for me, just tested again. What is your game version exactly? Press the FM button in-game and then select "About Football Manager".
    @[email protected]: Send me a PM.
    @Savic11: Was just outdated text. Fixed.
  • dzeta's avatar
    It is not translated into Spanish as the FMscout ??
  • alakhai's avatar
    Despite running the latest of both fm touch and fmse i'm still getting "failed to load...."
  • D@wn's avatar
    I really wish I can get this editor but what can I do to get it since I dont have money to purchase .. Very sad
  • Savic11's avatar
    I wanted to purchase the license but it says it "unlocks the editing features for the lifetime of the 2019 versioning." Is that something I should be worried about since this is fm2020 version, or, most likely, that part of the text just isn't updated? :)

    New version which adds support for the 20.0.3 patch is now available! The long-awaited bugfix update is also included in this version! Ennjoy. :)

    **Bugfixes / Improvements**
    - Fixed a bug where the player swapping was left incomplete
    - Fixed the staff attributes addresses
    - Fixed a bug where the staff attributes would get corrupted after saving
    - Fixed a bug with the contract offsets for the contract type
    - Fixed the offsets for the contract clauses and bonuses
    - Fixed a bug where saving the contract changes could crash the game

    We're aware of the 20.0.3 patch release. This is a problem for Thanos as he was close to finishing the bugfix update for tonight. That might still happen, but it has to arrive either after patchfix or ideally as one bugfix+patchfix. I know he will make an effort to do the latter, but if it's gonna happen it will be late tonight.
  • AngryDave's avatar
    Use will need to remain patient until they release a new build version. Anytime a new "patch" is released for FM2020, i would almost be certain whilst in beta stages, we will need to wait for new build to be compatible.
  • norbizzy's avatar
    im having the same issue " failed version message"
  • 1337's avatar
    When are you going to fix it???
  • dburt88's avatar
    Was working, updated and now comes up with Failed to load football manager data. Could not find a compatible football manager version. So wont work at all
  • luke.stephens2693's avatar isnt compatible with the 20.0.3 update that just came out
