FMSE Features

FMSE21 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 21.

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 license in order to be able to save your edits.

Here's an overview of the currently available key features...

    What a hat. Does not work
  • moralebgwmer's avatar
    same here, do not know the reason as fm21 is open along with my save, cheers.
    i am using the latest version, my exe name is "fm21.exe" if that's the problem, what do I rename it to if the editor is looking for a specific file?
    for context i am using ver 21.40

    The development cycle of FMSE21 ended when FMSE22 got released some months ago. The app was updated to be compatible with the latest FM21 version, so it should work.

    @URSS: Make sure you have FM21 open with your save loaded, before trying to load data on FMSE21.

  • sdmart3's avatar
    Guys when I use FMSE21 everything works great but the logo in the windows start menu still says FMSE20 and this is entirely unacceptable. 0/10 unusable.

    =] Thanks for the updates guys
  • Tackless64's avatar
    This does not seem to work on the newest version on game pass. Says it can't find any saves.
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE has been updated for the 'secret' patch on regular FM this time (Steam and Epic), which was released on April 7th.

    Guys there's no point in spamming the comment section with the same questions (and such comments might be removed). Whenever there's a new patch, I notify Thanos immediately, so he's aware we need an update. If there's delay in FMSE updates, it means he's unable to work on it sooner.

    @MDW300C: You need to upload that image somewhere online before anyone else can see it.

    @Vvio: What update? There was no FM Touch update on any platform for over a week or so.

    stam told us earlier it should be done today @villy
