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.

    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 :)

    @ren1986: I don't see any patches. Also they never roll out updates during weekends.

    @bautz: I've posted a mini tutorial that explains how to disable brexit. It was written for FM20 / FMSE20 but it's the same process.

    @Fifth Domain: That doesn't make sense to me. Can I see some screenshots please? I just tried to edit Karius' PA from 140 to 160 and it worked instantly.

    @Genzo: As you already know, I've alerted Thanos about it and waiting for his response.
  • ren1986's avatar
    Im sure he is already aware but fm23 was updated last night
  • bautz's avatar
    How do i disable brexit? cant find the option for that :/
  • Fifth Domain's avatar
    Is this editor actually working when i open it up on a person the data in the game and the editor dont match. Also getting stuff like Potential ability 64 current ability 200 how is that possible. It is also not even saving the correct values that have been entered into the editor they come out completely different in the game.
  • Genzo's avatar
    I have sent an email regarding my purchase, please do get back to me ASAP thanks!!

    @Noizzee: There's no option to change the currency in FMSE as it's currently "hardcoded" in GBP.

    @acaro: No, the license name is not a problem. Try to register your license. It should work.
  • Noizzee's avatar
    How can i set the currency to Euro?
  • acaro's avatar
    Hi, I purchased a license for FMSE23 and I think I was issued a license file for 22. The whole email says its for FMSE23 but license name starts with FMS22.
    Is this the case?
  • Stam's avatar
    @Lion75: Send a message to [email protected] - Thanos just told me he has handled all refund requests already.

    @juve_man: No. You can only swap 2 players between teams.
  • Lion75's avatar
    Mine still isn’t sorted regarding the license issue
  • juve_man's avatar
    Can we arrange and edit future transfers with this? @Stam
  • Lion75's avatar
    Where is support regarding the licence?
    I can only find the online chat with FM players or forums
  • sevenman's avatar
    All sorted really quickly with support, great service and great app guys KUTGW.
  • Barrett87's avatar
    I can confirm it works I re downloaded the FMSE 23 startup and got the licence so just tested in game and its all good. Also had the email about my refund so nice work guys.
  • sevenman's avatar
    Never mind, just seen your post below, mail support, assume I have to buy the licence again which is cool.
  • sevenman's avatar
    Thanks Stam, how do I change my licence I've just purchased for the correct one?

    Yes I uninstalled and re downloaded. Obviously I need to sort the license side out and need help with that, thanks.
  • Stam's avatar
    @sevenman: It appears that if someone tried to purchase a license by clicking the link within the app was taken to the FMSE22 cart instead of FMSE23. Thanos fixed the link and tried to update the download on this page, but that had an issue. I've sorted the download link on my return (I had to leave for 2 hours) and everything should be working properly now; both the downloadable here and the purchase link inside the app, assuming you redownload the fixed setup file.
  • sevenman's avatar
    I've just bought a licence but says it's for 22, how can that be when I used the direct link from this site?
  • Stam's avatar
    I've just updated the download link. Please re-download.
    If you tried to purchase a license using the link inside the app, that link was leading to the FMSE 22 cart. That has been fixed in the updated download file. However, if you completed an order for FMSE 22 without noticing it, please send an email to support to get a refund.
  • Konrad1275's avatar

  • Peterlp35's avatar

  • Mikey_07_86's avatar
    I have the same problem all the files I downloaded were also random nothings
