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.

    There might be a bug with the club facility editing: Followed the instructions on how to use it. I have the standart skin, no cache used, but after editing the facilities there is no change. Anyone else had this problem?
  • Hrochnick's avatar
    Sorry, still not able to find the game on Gamepass XBOX version.

    Does it matter where the SportsInteractve folder in Documents or the install locations are? Both of which I have moved from the defaults. What folder, if any, should go into "Game Documents" in settings?

    FMSE has been updated for the 22.2 patch on Steam / Epic. It seems there's no patch out yet for Xbox edition & Gamepass, so we'll roll out another update when that happens.
    In the meantime, Thanos has been working on a number of bug fixes and improvements. These are not included in today's update, but they'll be added with the next update that will likely arrive towards the end of this week.

Why have the ticket prices I set for my club using FMSE22 pre & during my save Not changed in the game itself after saving etc?

When i searced for the players in the searchbar i saw that they where at my my club but i coudn't play them or move them between my first and my u23 team. Does anybody know how to fix this or is it a bug with the editor

    What is the players growth potential rating scale?? Not the PA, but on clicking a player profile is shows growth potential... Any idea?
  • Hrochnick's avatar
    I can't get this to work with the Gamepass version either (XBOX or full FM2022) - "failed to load fm data".

    Does it matter where the SportsInteractve folder in Documents or the install locations are? Both of which I have moved from the defaults.

    I get that it will be released eventually, but you should probably stop recommending we use Genie Scout 22 until it's actually released. Bit annoying that redundancy has misled me into thinking it's available.
