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...

Become unsackable! No matter what happens, the board will never fire you. Have no fear of getting sacked ever again!

    Edit: nvm just had to disable the antivirus for it to install

    FMSE21 has just been updated to v4.0.1 - This is a bugfix update that fixes the crashing issues with the sugar daddy status, the human manager unsackable option and the human manager registration options.
    With this update I was hoping we'd also get the competition prize addition and the IGA feature back, but they'll arrive with another update.

    @Shutty: I've prepared a list for Thanos and sending it to him tonight. It contains all the reported issues, plus my own findings.

    @Nando: No. You can only enable an option for you to become unsackable.

    @FCD: The crash caused by editing the sugar daddy status has been fixed with tonight's bugfix update.

    @pabloslint: Yes, you can use FMSE to remove Brexit from your save. I did a brief tutorial about that last year.
  • Shutty's avatar
    Mass Edit is not working for me. I'm always told to purchase a license. "The feature is only available to registered users. If you want to be able to edit, please consider purchasing a license. [...]". Same when trying the advanced editor.

    I think I already had this issue with the 2020 version. Yes, I have bought a license. Yes, I registered it in the options menu. I open the program as an admin.

    Message when trying to save inside the Advanced Editor is in fact different: "The license you provided is not valid."
  • Nando7007's avatar
    Can I edit myselft? or just players and other staff but not me?
  • FCD's avatar
    It is crashing with the Sugar Daddy option. Does accept modify other financial points with no problem
  • FCD's avatar
    Tried to modify the finances of my club (using paid FMSE-version) but when I'm trying to save the modified values, the game crashes.
  • pabloslint's avatar
    Hello there, I've never used an editor for fm before. Will this editor enable me to remove Brexit from my existing save, or would I have to start a new save? Also, will it allow me to add English as a nationality to any player/staff in order to circumvent work permit rules?
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: I've alerted Thanos about all reports so far. He'll try to prepare a new version tonight to add competition prizes and possibly IGA, as well as fix the crashing issue with sugar daddy status.
  • DInnGhan's avatar
    Just want to update on the game crashing issue.. I think the crash dump issue only happens if you try to edit the sugar daddy status
  • Stam's avatar
    Please use the FMSE forum to report your technical issues with the app.

    @mofairuz @sadsac: If it's trying to load indefinitely, it's a permission issue & need to 'run as admininistrator'.

    @Desertik @derose: What problem?

    @Radijze: Not currently possible.

    @LHSmith: Reply to the forum post to explain if this is only happening when you try to change sugar daddy status or something else.

    @lukeclit: That's related to payment method and processing, which is handled by the fastspring service. Best practice is to ensure you have enough balance, and the name in your order matches the name of payment method used.

    @Ice30: Localization is something we want to do this season.

    @Hoffbeck92: Not sure about that, I'll check with Thanos.

    @CrustyTekkers: I don't know when MacAssistant RT for FM21 might be available.
