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...

    Hi, after updating to the new version I'm getting a 'Could not find a compatible Football Manager Version.' error on my save. Anything I can do to fix this?
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE21 has been updated to work with the secret patch on FM Touch and Game Pass version. The Xbox edition (different from the Game Pass one) is not supported.
    I'd like to sincerely apologize for the long delay of this particular update. Thanos was unable to work on it last week and needed family time over the weekend.
  • Dimitar26's avatar
    The FM Scout no longer works for FM touch, I have just paid the money to upgrade too? Will this be fixed if not can I get a refund?
  • Bowler's avatar
    JT4527, It usually does, but the editor has not been updated to work with the newest version of FM touch (it updated a few days ago) I'am wondering too, when the editor will be updated, so that it works again.
  • jt4527's avatar
    Does this need updating to work with FM Touch, Windows version?

    Because it doesn't work now.

    FM Touch 21.4.0-1529005 (m.e v21.7.0.0)
