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.

    Can confirm that the transfer embargo is working. Good work.

    @Halbak: This should only trigger if you're trying the download link when outside of - so the chances are you have some browser addon (such as privacy badger) that removes the referring domain info. Pause it for a second or try from another browser to download this.

    @kingjp: But the gamepass version is not out yet. Is it?
  • Halbak's avatar
    When I download I get this message:

    Downloading files directly on our download servers is only allowed for FM Scout users. Go to to find the relevant download page of the file you're trying to grab.
  • Anarkos's avatar
    To all the guys who's complaining about not loading the game, just try to run the program as administrator. This will solve your problem.
  • kingjp3's avatar
    Sorry if it's been asked but will this work for the GamePass version? Thanks
  • Stam's avatar
    Tonight's FMSE22 update (v5.0.1) is a bugfix one:
    - Fixed a critical auto updater bug
    - Fixed a bug with the player and team healing functionalities
    - Fixed a bug with the player unban functionality
    - Fixed an issue with the Club Embargo dates offsets

    It also brings back Competition Prize Tables, but not IGA and player swaps yet. Thanos will try to add these 2 with another update tomorrow.

    You need to download the new version from this page because the auto updater of first version had a bug.

    Is there a comparison somewhere between the 2 programs in terms of features or are they identical?
