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...

    hello, with the latest update of the game the FSME does not work.
    After Thanos updates what do we need to do? do we need to re-download the app?

  • Stam's avatar
    Status Update: FMSE will be updated for the 21.4 patch tomorrow as Thanos promised me. He was aiming to finish it tonight because he wanted to make it compatible with the Game Pass version as well, but needs a bit more time. Apologies for the delay. I'm hoping Thanos will deliver the update tomorrow before lunch time.

    I know the update is only just out,... but I know that Thanoulas has not much spare time where he follows up on the FM part... has he been made aware of the update and is there an ETA on new version of FMSE?
  • arenalas's avatar
    Can we change devision rules using this? for example foreign player rule.

    Hello !

    I don't understand why the price is the same in euros, Dollars and British pounds. The currency are not equals. Today, 5,99 Dollars = 4,99 Euros and 4,39 BP.

    So there is an advantage to pay in dollars. Not fair for British or European people...
