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.

    is it tonight already?
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE23 will be updated for 23.1.0 tonight as Thanos told me. He wants to take some time to bring back Competitions and Awards which haven't been available until now.
    @Bothan Spy: I don't think that's possible, but I'll look into it when I have some time. Staff can't be swapped, only contracted players.

    @ss25: Sorry, I don't understand.

    @Rivaldo77: If you followed the process to enable IGA, it should show up on the Attributes screen.

  • Bothan Spy's avatar
    Is there a way to make players on loan players permanent signings?
    Also how do you move out of contract staff to your club?
  • ss25's avatar

    Where can i find In-Game Assistant editor on player screen?
  • Stam's avatar
    @Kjisdajoker: FMSE is an unofficial editor and has nothing to do with the official in-game editor.

    @Jordendb: Change work permits how? For example, you can disable Brexit or add English nationality to players.

    @yousif: Having a member account here is unrelated to registering a license for FMSE. A license can be purchased and then registered within the app to unlock editing (allowing you to save your edits).
  • Kjisdajoker's avatar
    is this a seprate purchase to the in game editor or are they the same licence ??
  • Jordendb's avatar
    is it possible to change the work permits with this?
  • yousif4th4444's avatar
    i just Registered to the site but my FMCE App sill says unregistered why ?
  • Stam's avatar
    @Tarzans Red: Thanks for your continued support, it's much appreciated. I've notified Thanos to investigate the 'allow squad registration' function, alongside freezing attributes. Yes, it should be fixable.
  • Tarzans Reds's avatar
    Hey Stam, purchased FMSE23 today (I get it every year) and it works great except 'allow squad registration' doesn't work at all. Just trying to register 3 players for Bundesliga that I forgot to register, it's only 4 games into season too.
    Despite setting my manager and my Steam profile name to 'always allow registration', and then clicking save, when I add the players to the team for the season, the 'confirm selection' button remains faded out and unclickable.
    I've exited and reloaded game to see if that was it. Fixable?
  • kaanyaldz's avatar
    Hi,even though I trade players, she doesn't come to my team in the game
  • Stam's avatar
    So many comments in the past few days. I'll try to answer all of them now.

    @crasp: Not currently possible with FMSE.

    @simbo11: The download button works fine here. Try again?

    @haniobaid: I'll pass this on to Thanos for consideration. Thank you.

    @Foley: You'll be able to find and edit his staff attributes once he becomes pure staff and not player/staff.

    @HannaHer: Which attributes did you try to edit exactly? It would help to know more details in order to be able to replicate the issue.

    @vmarques: Correct. FMSE can't read people with a combined player/staff status.

    @ABlevrai: I'm struggling to understand what you're trying to say.

    @HJWilko @ignacastrov: It's for Windows only. I don't own a Mac to test if this can actually work using something called Parallels, but I've read that someone could do it.

    @JLK: No, transfers are not supported. Only player swaps.

    @mneto_8: Open FMSE, go to File (blue button, top left) > Options > Registration (tab). You'll find the import button, browse to your license file, click OK.

    @Ryanmin99 @Slim_Buddha: I'll try to prepare a mini tutorial about the player swap feature and to deal with possible registration problems.
    FMSE23 is still in beta, so it's not unlikely for a certain feature to not function as intended.

    @mcetli: The only possible explanation is that he has turned into player/staff.

    @Dru1927: If you mean that Trippier is still in the game but has turned into player/staff and not just player, that can explain it. FMSE doesn't read people with player/staff status.

    @doctorhjorth: Thanks, we appreciate the kind words!

    @jacobmatthews1993: What do you expect the change of CA to do in-game? If you have another tool for reading CA, you might need to reload the game on that tool to read that change.

    @craftygamer558: Yes, condition should change immediately. But you'll need to change a screen in-game to actually see the change. Just change screen and return, no need to press Continue.
    You can't swap player/staff, only players.

    @AnfieldSouth: I just tried to change Newcastle's transfer budget and it worked at once. Make sure you change Rem. Transfer Budget and not (just) Season Transfer Budget.
