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!

    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.

    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.

    @JJKB24: Yes, you can. Simply open Chelsea, go to finances tab, then change the end date of transfer ban to be 1 day after your current day in-game. You will receive news in inbox that embargo has been lifted.

    @Heureux: By club money, do you mean transfer budget or something else? It's important to know exactly how to reproduce a bug in order for Thanos to fix. Either way, we'll likely have a bugfix update by tomorrow.

    @butleriain: Should be ready during the week.
  • JJKB24's avatar
    Can you remove transfer ban so Chelsea can buy players?

    Quick update:
    Thanos has been working on a bugfix update since Friday night. This update remains unfinished because he's also trying to prepare MacAssistant RT'20 for its initial release. The most important known bugs include the player swap function and staff attributes. I'm hoping he can finish that soon.

    In the meantime, there's a new version which adds support for 20.0.2 on FM Touch.
