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.

    Endless loading, and I specified the folder with the saves in the settings.

    thanks guys!
  • Mostarski Zrinjski's avatar
    Its updated. Tnx @Thanos
  • Stam's avatar
    FMSE23 has been updated to support the 23.3.0 patch. Apologies for the long delay. Enjoy!
  • ForzaJuve7's avatar
    How about this, get a life and don’t play the game for a few days. There’s endless alternatives instead of crying about an update for a tool that helps you cheat lol
  • Mostarski Zrinjski's avatar
    b0tha, you can use your brain a bit in-game with scouts and checking players out yourself? Using this tool might be fun for you but if its only way you can enjoy the game then idk, I paid for the scout editor myself but I don't care if I can't use it for 2-3 days. they will update it when they can.
  • Juve merda's avatar
    Actually this site is making more profit from all those cryer baby clicks/visit in adversite than the product in itself.
    I expect the update won't be publised in the next day as this is really profitable for us
  • b0tha's avatar
    Mostarski Zrinjski what if I told you that i am at January 2023 and the window transfer just open now, and many players will be free agent this year and its importanta to check with the scout, eh?? Or do you know all the potencial of the palyers to sign with the club, eh?
  • Mostarski Zrinjski's avatar
    What if I told you, you can still play FM23 without using cheeky scouting/editing tool eh?
  • b0tha's avatar
    Status Update: Thanos messaged me a few hours ago. He was away on a business trip and just returned. He should be able to update FMSE23 later today. By Stam!!! ( this was tomorrow)
    So far nothing!!! its been difficult to realised this update......

    Patience is a virtue. Keep up the good work guys, take as long as you need. Currently doing a Man City sanctioned challenge in the Conference. A lot of fun with all the youth, looking forward to the editor so I can sort my squad numbers out, I stupidly started the season after the choices were made and everyone has 70+ shirt numbers.

    Well if this is not going to be updated by the end of today I will inquire for refund. Its disgrace to pay for something that doesnt work + people are being told lies that it was going to be updated yesterday. At least you could told the truth. I also dont get people that are suprised that others are getting annoyed with this. We paid money to have this available, its not crying but just kindly demanding what was promised. When I bought this it did not said anywhere before purchase that it might not work for days or weeks. If it would people wouldnt act like we do and a lot wouldnt even bought this...

    January 27th - v6.3.0 Patchfix for 23.2.2, made available 1 day after patch release.
    December 3rd - v6.2.0 Hotfix and patchfix for 23.2.0, made available 2 days after patch release.
    These all are lies, you guys are liar. I want to get refund! It's been 3 day since its released but still i can't see your application. Such a regret to buy what a shame!
  • Juve merda's avatar
    Will the next version include tissues for all those baby cryers?
  • liamtic's avatar
    lads relax ! no need lol
  • Galaaz's avatar
    IU am also frustrated as I do not have many days that I can play easily, and I just started a new season and wanted to use this, but come on. The dev is doing it alone, its 1 person, has other things going on and has a life. Be respectful and understanding.

    Also he distributes this with a free version, and "the paywall", is because this takes time of his personal life, its an investment, we are using his work, so being paid for his time is normal.

    With that said, why not create a version that is not tied with new software version, how hard is it for the software to detect that there is a new FM version and just update some variable and use the new engine version, I doubt that they change the api's every version, I suspect this is kind of a variable in some xml.

    A fool and his money are soon parted.
    Thanks for your 5k per month but an update like that can't be made in few hours
  • ren1986's avatar
    Ok i waited patiently, was told it should be available last night, its now 10am next day and still nothing, i just want to put this out there, if thanos doesnt have the time to edit these updates then he has either of 2 options, stop making the content entirely or stop forcing a paywall behind it, if your going to charge people you need to be on time with things.
  • p0p0c4t3p3t3l's avatar
    Funny to see all these whiny loosers that can't win without cheating
  • Juve merda's avatar
    Opinion discarted
  • ForzaJuve7's avatar
    What’s ridiculous is how little patience people have. Just don’t play the game for a couple of days until the tool is updated lol
  • nicktheblock's avatar
    This is ridiculous now
  • drcm's avatar
    when its gonna be available to use with the latest FM23 patch?
