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 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.

  • r9jeff's avatar
    its not working update needed
  • shaka81's avatar
    Thanks @Stam for the quick fix. Can I check with you something please? After changing certain attributes of a player, does FMSE show the recommended CA for the player like how the FM editor would?
  • Stam's avatar
    Just heard back from Thanos, so here's what he said:
    The hotfix for staff was harder than he expected, hence the delay. That hotfix and the patchfix for 23.0.5 will be included in the next update that should drop tonight.
  • haniobaid's avatar
    you guys are champions for releasing so quick after beta regardless. Cheers
  • ryanmac's avatar
    @stam thanks for the update!
  • Stam's avatar
    Quite status update: I'm aware of the patch and have alerted Thanos shortly after it got released. There's also a hotfix update in the works for staff attributes which he wasn't able to complete last night. Fingers crossed he can wrap it up later tonight, alongside the patchfix update for 23.0.5.

    Hate fm updates FMSE23 stopped working any news when new update for fmse23 is out!!!
  • İstanbullu's avatar
    The first update has arrived and FMSE23 stopped working, hate this :) now we have to wait.
  • Ketsura's avatar
    Im confused. in FMSE20 staff showed PA from 1-200. Now it does not show those values when I search the staff, is this intentional from the editor or its a bug? Because idk how im supposed to read the new numbers that are show.
  • haniobaid's avatar
    ok the duplicate entries for the make unsackable only happens if you reload data, the workaround is just to close fse then reopen it before loading
  • haniobaid's avatar
    players who are managers (dual role), don't seem to show up under either search
  • haniobaid's avatar
    is editing own character part of upcoming staf fix?

    The icon on top where I can make myself unsackable shows up multiple times (starts with 2 then increases), and if you set one to unsackable, the others don't change but it seems to be working because under responsibilities hiring general manager seems to be my responsibility assuming that's how it works?
  • michaelandrews's avatar
    Thank you Stam.
    It seems sometimes the editor does not make the swap, on the main menu it is correct but when looking at the contract tab the player remains on his club.
  • Fifth Domain's avatar
    Excellent, thanks Stam and Thanos.
  • nbigz's avatar
    It's possible to use on Mac ?
  • khuraifah fm addiict's avatar
    Hey my license shows fm22
  • Prinzar's avatar
    How do I edit my own manager? My name doesn’t show when I search for staff. Feel like it must be obvious but I just can’t see it. Thanks
  • Stam's avatar
    We're aware that staff attributes are incorrect, so avoid fiddling with them for now. I've talked to Thanos and we're hoping to roll out a hotfix update tonight to sort that.
    @EddyD: Not sure what you're saying. Write in English please.

    @Fifth Domain: I was able to replicate the issue and hoping for a fix tonight.

    @michaelandrews: It's only possible to swap 2 players with contracts between clubs. For example, you can swap Neymar with Dembele.
  • Fifth Domain's avatar
    Good afternoon Stam, how do i add a screenshot? When i click to add picture it wants a URL which i don't have. It appears its an issue with staff more than players.
  • michaelandrews's avatar
    Is it possible to move a player from one club to another ?
    Currently, the beta has a bug regarding new signing contracts and squad player contracts, it's not possible to advance to contract negotiations since the option is always disabled. This editor would be very helpful if it would allow to change the player's club.

    Thanks a lot Stam :)
