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.

Known Issues

None at the moment.

    @entigy: Excellent! :)

    @Fatalit: MacAssistant was supposed to arrive a couple of weeks ago, but it didn't. Thanos was working on it, but have kept quiet since then.

    @Ceday: It should be working with GamePass version. Do you have FM22 open with your save loaded? It's required before trying to load data in FMSE.
  • Arvid04's avatar
    @CrazyChris85, der Editor ist eindeutig auf englisch sprechend und verstehende User ausgerichtet. Mich stört dabei nur £/week anstatt €/year!
  • entigy's avatar
    It's now working with the GamePass version Yay!!
    Thanks for the new update... ☺
  • Fatalit14's avatar
    When for Mac?
  • CedayBarney's avatar
    It gives error "failed to load fm data". The game does not have exe because I am using gamepass. Is there a solution?
  • Stam's avatar
    I'm happy to announce this much awaited update which brings player swap back, introduces staff attributes freeze function, and makes FMSE compatible with GamePass & MS Store editions of FM22. Enjoy!
    FMSE22 v5.2.0
    New Features
    - Added support for FM 22.1.0 (XBox GamePass)
    - Added support for FM 22.1.0 (Microsoft Store)
    - Player Swap is back!
    - Staff attributes can now be frozen!

    Bugfixes / Improvements
    - Fixed a bug that would prevent FMSE from removing "unhappy" from players

    5.2.0 is out. You can update the program within the program.
  • Stevka's avatar
    Its been a week since Game Pass version was released. Any upcoming updates?
  • CrazyChris85's avatar
    Bin am Editor interessiert bloß habe ich nirgends gefunden wo man die Sprache des Editors auf deutsch ändern kann bzw auch von Pfund in € wechseln kann? Ist das im Editor möglich sonst kaufe ich mir den besser nicht
  • Taro85's avatar
    But this has only been noticed so far with one club, and in the rest it works fine
  • RaPoZaUm's avatar
    Doesn't work with Gamepass version.
  • Taro85's avatar
    Why is FM Scout suddenly shutting down when selecting a particular team (AC Milan)?
  • entigy's avatar
    Paid for a licence, but FMSE won't work with Game Pass version....
  • T-White's avatar
    fmse uninstalled itself and can't be installed again.
  • bigmattb's avatar
    Doesn't work, says could not find compatible version. I've done the check for updates thing and it says you're up to date. Why is it doing this when the licence is paid for and installed to it?
  • falsetwelve's avatar
    anybody knows how to use it with game pass?
  • Aymen's avatar
    not working on game pass
  • Stam's avatar
    I've got some not great news. Today's planned update to add player swaps has to be postponed (hopefully for tomorrow).
    Thanos had an accident today with his PC, as the CPU water block broke and fluid leaked inside the case. Hopefully nothing died & just waiting for a new water block to arrive tomorrow.
  • BWils's avatar
    Looking forward to when it's usable with Game Pass! Do you have a timeline on this? @Stam
  • Danielci58's avatar
    Doesnt work on Game Pass.
  • ClarkFM's avatar
    Sports Science attribute is missing while editing staff.
  • StuartNG's avatar
    Hi there, is there any plans for the stadium editor function in this years' release? That was something that I liked tinkering with last time around. Thanks
  • FMAfrica's avatar
    Hey folks, is this available on Mac as well?
  • Stevka's avatar
    When can we expect FMSE22 work on game pass?
  • Rappers's avatar
    Has there been a new update for FM? I've updated FMSE to the newest version but it still says I can't find a version thats compatible, does FMSE work with FM22 on Microsoft Game Pass?
