FMSE Features

FMSE22 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 22.

After 2 years without making much progress with new features, we intend to be more active adding new functionality. We have a major update in the works, where you can expect a total revamp of the UI & the addition of Player/Staff (finally) to begin with.

Whenever there's a new official patch out, we'll make an effort to update FMSE asap. And while update time is dependent on external factors (such as patch complexity), we'll do our best to deliver updates faster than other editing tools out there.

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

Become unsackable! No matter what happens, the board will never fire you. Have no fear of getting sacked ever again!
Nation Editing
Edit Nation general data, teams, Kits and Agreements. For example, you can disable Brexit by adding England back to EU.
In-Game Assistant
See hidden player attributes, CA/PA & actual left/right foot values right in the game (attributes screen). This is an exclusive feature no other tool for Windows is offering!
Edit Club Finances
Edit all kinds of club finances, such as budgets, ticket prices, sugar daddy, sponsors, debts and more.
Edit Club Info
Fiddle with year founded, facilities, youth recruitment, morale, attendances.
Edit Players
A vast amount of player details can be edited, including value, all attributes, abilities, contract data, reputation, positions, preferred moves and so on. You can also heal injuries, destroy a player (fitness to 1%) and remove bans.
Freeze Player Attributes
You can now freeze attributes so they remain unaffected by CA, PA or training.
Edit Competitions
Extensive editing for competition, with more editable data than other real-time editor.
Edit Staff
Scout for and Edit Non-Playing staff like Coaches, Assistant Managers, etc.
Mass Edit Teams
Quick-actions to Heal Team, Remove Unhappy, Remove Bans and Destroy Team.
Edit Club Kits
Change kit style and colours every new season and see these changes apply to the 3D match as well!
Edit Awards
In-depth editing of awards is possible for all sorts of award details. The most advanced FM Award Editor is here!
Edit Cities
Edit city details such as coordinates, attraction, altitude and amount of inhabitants.
Mass Edit Players, Staff, Clubs, Awards & Cities
Advanced Mass Edit dedicated panel you can access after selecting 2 or more entities in search results. Multi-select entities using Shift-click, Ctrl-click or click-drag.

FMSE doesn't work with network saves, and it never will. Because that'd turn it into a hacking tool and we don't want that.

    Great work first of all!

    I noticed that I can´t change a player name with a ã character in it.

    Example: If I try to edit the last name of a player to Brandão, it only appears Brandã in the game. Reloaded skin and all.

    Hey, I'm getting the same loading screen has @tonywood. It's just loading forever. I start by loading my save game on FM 22, once it has loaded I open FMSE and load it there, but from there it just continues to load nonstop. I played for an hour and a half and it's still loading on FMSE.
