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.

  • Jamie Aubrey's avatar
    So open your mouth again, i will squirt on it.

    Is that a threat or an offer ? Either way, I'M DOWN and to not take away from this thread to much, you can use other tools until this one is ready, I myself use this from time to time, just to check my intake but I'm not in that much of a rush

    @Jamie Aubrey FMSE more than just cheat.
    Some stupid mechanism inside game is not so realistic.

    You played 1 player in last 5 match as starter, and next day, he/she mad complaining for not being starter.

    Mechanism like this is anoying as it is not inferred from real world situation.
    How fucking stupid it is, the game is not perfect and sometimes we need tools to make it more comfort.

    Many mechanic in FM is too player centrist, such as transfer all go to the league u played and so on. We need to adjust that thing for better and more realistic experience.

    So open your mouth again, i will squirt on it.

    GS is out tell Thanos he can do one
  • Jaginho's avatar
    It's not cheating it just makes it more like real life cos in the game u don't really have time to watch ur target play multiple full games to be sure it's the exact kinda player u want...just think of GS and FMSE as in game YouTube
  • surrath's avatar
    it's not a question of cheating I use scout editor just to know the potential of future new generations to try to have the future stars of tomorrow and make them progress
  • Jamie Aubrey's avatar
    You guys are so impatient, do you need to cheat THAT badly ?
  • Jaginho's avatar
    Just use fmrte for now...maybe not as good as GS but just as good as FMSE for shizzle
  • surrath's avatar

    Thanos is always on business trips / vacations. Thankfully there are other editors to choose.
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick status update: I was able to speak to Thanos today and the news are not what you might be hoping for. He's on a business trip abroad, returning home at the end of the week. He'll resume work on FMSE24 during the weekend, but he currently thinks it's unlikely to have the initial version ready before December. Sorry guys.
