FMSE Features

FMSE23 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 23.

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 as quickly as possible.

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 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 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.

    i actually need fmse now to compel players to change their nationalities... i think its madly unrealistic how Olise at 29 still refuses to represent Nigeria even though he has zero caps both senior n youth....its really frustrating managing countries with this obvious error
  • Jaginho's avatar
    @don dada thats really insulting...what am alluding to is he bears not just the same name but personality with marvel's thanos without saying it...i know doppelganger means resemblance i just put it like that so intelligent people can decipher what i mean.

    When Thanos gets so much hate, is there really any wonder he dont rush or reply at all, some of the comments in here are worthy of spoilt 5 year olds
  • surrath's avatar
    Good morning,

    do we have any news when scout editor 24 because we are 6 days before christmas and still nothing, will thanos finally decide to release the new version because the further it goes and it gets worse and worse.
    The more the years go by, the more I have the impression that Thanos doesn't care about FM scout, the game has been out for more than 2 months including the beta and still nothing.
    Could Thanos himself come and answer us because I have the impression of having to deal with a ghost?
