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 paid license in order to be able to save your edits.

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

    Anyone else having an issue with FMSE 21 when you try to open the team you are managing to edit them and the APP closes. Bullguard claims its malware (i know it isnt). However i have no issues editing other teams or players

    Are there any plans to add editable values for staff roles like Sports Scientist and Analysts? - currently there is no way to change the value of Sports Science or "Analyzing Data" that are integral to the new roles of recruitment analyst and performance analyst.
