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.

    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?
  • m4v3r1ck84's avatar
    Hey, the license from the beta is compatible with the final version as well as all forthcoming updates? thnx in advance
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE was updated last night, shortly after the Beta to Final update. IGA is back in this version. Tomorrow we'll roll out another update to bring back player swaps as well, and possibly introduce a freeze function for staff attributes. Enjoy!

    Does this editor have an option to change how players wear t-shirts, inside or outside shorts? It’s so frustrating when I see platers in FM 3D match with shorts inside t-shirt. Literally nobody wear T-shirt this way nowadays))

  • tuncking23's avatar
    yesterday I buy FMSE22 and everything work fine, today i have problem. when i load the game, i can search and enter all the clubs and players and options posible, but i cannot open my club, when i tried to open - FMSE22 just crashed every time.

    what can i do to fix this??
  • JS94's avatar
    I beg & plead to anybody reading this don't waste your money on this garbage. It will leave you with unplayable glitches. Wait for the official in-game editor to come out. Which I may also add is cheaper. Extremely disappointed with my purchase!!
  • socrate87's avatar
    Is there a way to only edit individual attributes? I am especially referring to changing hidden attributes like PA or professionalism, but without affecting the current attributes.
  • JLK's avatar
    I paid $6 for a tool that doesn't work... also the editor appears to have changed my half of my players nationalities to Nicaraguan.

  • RichardCarr's avatar
    I purchased a licence for FMSE last year to use with FM21. Can i use the same registration code for this version to use with FM22??

    @jord85: If installation fails for you, maybe you need to get .NET framework first.

    @Tarzans: We don't, it's Fastspring needing that for their anti-fraud system. Basically name has to match the payment details (eg. name of card) & email must be valid. You can enter a random phone number, the system won't care about that I think.

    @sagital: We've already sorted that via chat last night.

    @Clark: The problem was that FMSE didn't support the person type player/staff which is when players would also get a staff profile. Thanos said he will finally add that this November. But wait until it happens before committing to a license.

    @stefanhee: If you're still on v5.0.0, the auto updater won't work. You need to grab the newest version from this page.

    @dweeboss: Currently that's not possible.

    @JamesFR: There's no kind of 'flag' for FFP that the editor can fiddle with. At least Thanos hasn't found one. So the editor can give you whatever funds you want, but can't 'disable' FFP.
  • jord85's avatar
    cant even get to install ?
  • Tarzans Reds's avatar
    Why do you require our name, email and phone number? That's not neccesary
  • sagital's avatar
    hello i'v been charge twice for the editor. how do i get refund?
  • ClarkFM's avatar
    I'm considering donating, however I had a regular problem with previous years' versions that older players (starting around 35-36) were not present in the editor. Is it still the same in this version?
  • stefanhee's avatar
    @Stam is it only me, but the update won´t install - it get the error message.
    An error with updates - does I have WIFI
    it´s version 5.0.2
  • dweeboss's avatar
    is there a way to move a manager from one club to another (as in AI manager not controlled manager)?
  • JamesFR12's avatar
    @Stam: When I edit the club's finances, it suddenly says that the FFP is 230 million in the negative and that the FFP will not be reached at the end of the season.
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE22 has been updated to v5.0.2 roughly 2 hours after the FM22 Beta patch was released. Enjoy!
    There's no need to spam the comment section with the same messages. We are very much aware whenever a FM22 patch is released & doing our best to update FMSE in timely manner.

    @JamesFR12: Not sure I understand what you mean about FFP.
    @bolleeder: What exactly is half of it that doesn't work for you?
    @craftygamer: Destroy and heal should be working. I'll notify Thanos to double check though.
  • RSurbrook's avatar
    for anyone getting the "could not find compatible version" error, just go to file > options > check for updates in fmse22. That prompted an update to v5.0.2 that took about 10 seconds to install, then it was good to go
