FM 2013 Tools - FM13 Real-Time Financial Editor
FM Real-Time Financial Editor is a tiny tool that enables you to become the next richest manager in Football Manager 2013.
It has a very straightforward interface and works lightning fast.

This is the first release of FMRTFE. This tool is released for free, as we feel you shouldn't be forced to pay for 3rd party tools of a game.
Exclusively available from

Released: 29 November 2012 - v1.0
Updated: 10 January 2013 - v1.1

FMRTFE has been replaced by FMEL since February 13. FMEL is the evolution of FMRTFE and enables you to edit finances and kits and heal injuries on the fly.
Download button on this page will take you to FMEL download page.

Redistribution Policy:
People who want to put FM13 Real-Time Financial Editor on other sites, you may link back to this very page but you cannot host any files yourselves. Thank you!


FMRTFE allows you to search for the club of your choice and edit:
  • Transfer Budget
  • Wage Budget
  • Overall Balance
This is a very simple editor that allows you to quickly adjust financial information of clubs. It should be safe to use it, but at any case make sure to keep a backup of your savegame before using.


.NET FRAMEWORK 3.5 (standalone offline installer) or higher
To find out if you have .NET Framework 3.5 installed, you can use Framework Detector (free tool).

Patch 13.2.2
To use this version of FMRTFE, you must have your game updated with the 13.2.2 Patch.

Please note it won't work with the Russian or Korean versions of the game.

This is FMRTFE for Windows.
We'll be working on a Mac edition and hopefully it will be made available soon.

How to use

  1. Extract the downloaded in a folder of your choice.

  2. Run Football Manager 2013, and load your save game (or start a new one).

  3. Run FMRTFE.exe (ALT+TAB to desktop first if you're running FM full screen).

  4. Click the "Load Game" button.

  5. Enter club's name in the Search input box and hit Enter.

  6. Double-click on the club's row. Edit finances and click Save.


This tool is an and association.
BIG thanks to Stelios for being awesome enough to make this possible!

    Bravo, well bro dont you ever consider using or joining with eugene fm scout for your editor. if you 2 merge it will be best combo. real time editor + genie scout tool 2 in 1. hope fully you consider my suggestion. nice work bro. love you . appreciated your work.

    fm scout has nice interface and perfect layout. wouldnt it be easier to reuse his project.
    well its just my wishful thinking. if you 2 manage to combine it , you guys will be the heroes of the fm community, thanks to give me back the editing fun to my current game though not like fmrte but still i deeply appreciate it.

    I hate to spam but since there hasn't been an answer yet i'll ask: Any ETA on the mac version?
    I love the simplicity of this tool, i can't wait to use it to overcome my stupid boards tightness. Having won thousands of pounds in cup matches for a BSN team, it would be nice if they'd let me spend some of it. With this i can hopefully add a measly 10k to my transfer budget!
    Thanks and great work.

    Are there any plans to make this tool recognize custom teams?
  • irishceltic's avatar
    ok, thank you very much!
  • Stam's avatar
    @SandroX: Because none of us has the Russian or Korean version. If you want to help with that, you can upload your fm.exe on a free hosting site (e.g. sendspace) and send me the link to it via private message. Thanks!

    @irishceltic: Not sure, I need to speak with the dev team again about it. I'll let you know if it would be possible to have it ready later this month.
  • SandroX's avatar
    @stam, it's not fair, why it's not work with Russian version?
  • irishceltic's avatar
    Hi there,

    do you have any idea on when it will be available for Mac? would love to use this for a savegame..

    thanks for your effort!

    @Amdisity: I think the problem is that you're running a custom database which the tool doesn't understand. Can you try starting a new save game without any custom editor data and see if it works?

    @jar3cki: Reload the page and try "Download Now" button again. It's definitely the 1.1 version.

    @thewwechamp: Seems like a framework issue.

    @SandroX: It doesn't work with the Russian or Korean versions, sorry.
  • Amdisity's avatar
    I made my own custom team through the Database Editor, when I search for my team using this Financial Editor, there are no results. (The game loads fine, and all other teams can be found and edited fine, just not mine.)

    Am I doing something wrong, or is there a reason why custom teams can't be found? If so, can this be fixed, please?

    Reason I ask is, I made my new team and added myself as a player within my team. 5 seasons down the line and my contract's about to run out, I need a moderate boost to my wage budget (for a larger max wage offer) to meet demands.
    I've been stuck with this issue for the past week now, and I haven't played FM since, other than trying to find a way around it. I really don't want to continue playing my team without 'me' in it. So, pretty desperate for a way to work this out!
  • SandroX's avatar
    I redownload a game. Start a new career, run FMRTFE and press Load Game and still have "No game loaded?" message. Save the game, restart it, try it againe, result is same "No game loaded?". Please fix it.
  • jar3cki's avatar
    Where can I download new version? 'Download now' button allowed me only to download 1.0 version, it should be updated.
  • thewwechamp's avatar
    When i try to open the .exe,it stops instantly.It doesn't matter if the game is on or not.I have framework 3.0 and 3.5,hovewer the detector says i don't have 1.0.May that be the problem?
  • SandroX's avatar
    Yes, of course. Russian Steam version. 13.2.2f342841
  • Stam's avatar
    @ryan_cushing @SandroX: Do you have the latest 13.2.2 patch? It will only work with this version. And you're sure FM13 is running and your save game loaded?

    @irishspurs: If I can recall, I told you a week before new year that the author went abroad for his Xmas vacation and he would be able to work on the update when he returned in a week or so. He got back around January 3rd and started to work on it. We'd release the new version on Monday (7 Jan) but a new patch was released, so we had to work on a new version again. I never made a promise on a release day.
  • SandroX's avatar
    I also have "No game loaded?" when a push Load Game button.
  • ryan_cushing's avatar
    ive followed the steps exactly as above but when i click load game a message come up with "no game loaded?" can anyone help?
  • irishspurs's avatar
    Ok Stam the lie was i was told that the tool would be ready in a few days. That was 3 weeks ago. So as the day's kept ticking by i just felt it wasn't going to be updated. Sorry if got a little upset. Also i didn't realize ye were an independent organisation and nothing to do with Steam and thought Steam had something to do with blocking the update in order to force people to pay for the money cheat's. I apologize for the comment's and thank you for your hard work.
  • alemaopaok4's avatar
