FM10SX is the one and only data editor/scout utility for Mac and of course the successor of FM09SX, though dramatically improved compared to last year's version. It's not a real-time editor, which means you don't have to run FM for it to work; it works with loading your save game.
The app is being released as open source here.

Updated: 29 Sep 2010 - v0.80
Released: 13 Dec 2009 - v0.05

1) Extract the .zip archive
2) Move the extracted folder into applications folder or the folder of your choice
3) Double-click to run the app
4) File -> Open -> Choose your save game

Should support all FM 2010 versions. Including the latest patch 10.2!!
At the moment is merely supports OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or higher. Hopefully, there will be support for 10.4 (Tiger) later on.

Bug reports
If you get any errors using FM10SX, such as "Error loading XXX" or "Invalid XXX", you will need to upload your save game somewhere (eg. RapidShare, Filefront, MegaUpload, TransferBigFiles, YouSendIt) for littleblue to try and come up with possible fixes.
Check out the issue tracker.


FM10SX in your language
How to localise
To help in translating into your language, visit this link and start translating the english text into your language.
e.g. "English" = "English" you would change into "English" = "????????" for Greek

The text in comments like this: /* some comment */ is a message to you, so you know what you are translating and this comment does not need translating.

To help out on an existing language, visit the links above and translate any untranslated strings and let me know by email or on the googlecode page so i can add your translations to the project

You DO NOT have to translate everything in the file before you can let me know about it. If you just have 5 minutes and want to translate 2 or 3 words, just choose 2 or 3 untranslated words and send them to me and that's 2 or 3 more complete.

Localisations in progress
* Japanese
* Brazilian - Portuguese
* Norwegian

This amazing app was created by littleblue. Thanks to Fulham_mic, Weegie, Tom-West, Rhodesy, PoZel, arg, dz3, LoonyPandora for helping out with testing and to Marchino78 for the beautiful logo.

    I installed the latest 10.3 patch, unchecked the compress saved games, saved it again (actually several times to be sure) and then tried to run this updated fm10sx app. Unfortunately, as it goes to load clubs, it shuts the app down. So it doesn’t seem to work for me. Thoughts of other things to try?

    From the screenshots I’ve seen, I do have to thank littleblue for creating this. If I can get this to work, it's an absolute lifesaver!!!!!!
  • snookian's avatar
    hey thanks mate nice to have it back ! :D
  • mogway101's avatar
    hey guys! your gonna love me i have a link for the new update it now works for the new patch all thanks welcome :zito
  • ironandmine's avatar
    hello everyone,

    i'm new here at fmscout and i was wondering if anyone (and it seems like littleblue and stam are the likeliest to know something concrete) has any idea when the new update will drop? i don't wish to get involved in the exchange that seems to have developed; merely trying to get a feel for how the project's coming. thanks a lot for all your work, littleblueand co; godspeed on finishing it! i wish i had any programming skills so i could help but, alas, this layman can do nothing but wait patiently! :plz
  • Jiyefuu's avatar
    well jackt, i know what u mean.

    no one here likes to get rude for no reason eh? but what u refer to as the 'groupies', they're the ones who started the heated debate with inappropriate and unprofessional comments (except for amy).
  • Stam's avatar
    "The nerve"... that's funny. Pseudo-political is even funnier though. And if all those so called groupies are losers, I cannot see how that makes you a winner of any sort. I guess you might feel superior by criticizing other people's behavior; good for you mate. Way to go, an example to follow.
  • Jackt's avatar
    I feel a little bad for all the groupies that got all defensive and pseudo-political from day one when people had "the nerve" to kindly ask for an ETA or an occasional update every few weeks.

    Losers :lol
  • racheakt's avatar
    Jiyefuu, is a software which you can install on your Mac and run paralell to your apple system windows in a seperate window. But in order to run the game smoothly on paralell (windows) you require a fast processor. Check out

    STAM, yes you are correct, no need to complain why no update or why is save not working etc etc but some reply would be good out of courtesy as I mentioned. Wishing you all good luck and game on FM
  • Stam's avatar
    I'll add my opinion as well; not that it would count for anything, but I just want to do so.
    Amy is developing FMSX on her spare time, which has probably run out lately. This means we shouldn't complain about having no new version in a while, though I agree she should post updates once a month at least (twice a month even) regarding her progress if there is any.
  • Jiyefuu's avatar
    hahahah thx for sharing my view racheakt.. cos all along people only suck up to those guys..n thx for elaborating the point

    parallel desktop?
  • racheakt's avatar
    Jiyefuu, yes you are correct and so many other on here too. If any person starts developing and on Top of all make Big announcements on this Board it is courtesy to update the cummunity regulary even No revision is relaesed which poeple will understand. Other Users are testing, taking also time in responding to support and it should be as much appreciated as we appreciate the volenteer work by the programmer and not making poeple coming back here with no update since MONTH (comment atleast). I am not waiting for this software as there is a way around if you use paralell desktop on your mac but occasionally coming back to read this board with interest hehehehehehe......Have fun guys!
  • Jiyefuu's avatar
    stop making excuses, loser.. i'm sure people won't mind PAYING for something that's actually useable and delivered on time! why should i pay if there is no exact date to be delivered with errors n bugs?

    its not like you're a professional who works for SI. go ahead n file a job application to SI.. see if they want you.
  • mantralux's avatar
    Hey Jiyefuu, have you actually payed for a product? The answer is no, you haven't paid for anything, have no right to demand anyone updating you, and should frankly be thankful someone even had a go at making something for you. For free.

    It is people like you who are the reason stuff like this doesn't get completed. Programmers sit for hours/days/months to create something for free, and all they get in return are ungrateful children being mad that the application isn't made in the time they want it to be done.

    So either send the programmer enough money to make it possible for her to take time off work to create this application for your enjoyment, or shut your ungrateful mouth and go complain somewhere else.
  • Jiyefuu's avatar
    for god sake if the project is gonna be abandoned anyway why bother doing this n get all our hopes up in the first place?

    frankly i am fed up with waiting and all those 'kiss ass' losers going freak on people like me and italia24
  • Varch's avatar
    For the second year in a row FMxxSX is abandoned? Wow, cool :damn
  • jaybz's avatar
    hello littleblue - obviously you're under no obligation to answer, but do you think it's roughly a matter of days, weeks, months or years before editing is enabled? Thanks.
  • Dunkel's avatar
    I guess it is not abandoned but as I understand it, work has just commenced again after a lenghtly period of paying work for the developers.
  • Jiyefuu's avatar
    is this project finally abandoned???:con
  • italia24's avatar
    seriously, could we get sum kind of updates on whats going on? im not the only 1. we dont know anything
  • Dunkel's avatar
    A month and-a-half ago we got a splendid update. What is in stock for us this time?
  • forster's avatar
    mantralux, I was talking about italia24. I'm on littleblue's side here. :)
  • Dunkel's avatar
    I think it is better to check over at the SI Forums.
  • Cuorelupo's avatar
    Sorry to be annoying, but any chance we could have an update on any progress with player updating?
  • mantralux's avatar
    I'm not annoyed at all, I'm having lots of fun with the FM10SX app.

    And you're right, she's not interested in what we want, she'll program when she can and wants to, and if you think that's annoying I suggest you head outside for some fresh air.

    It takes time and effort (= money) to create the kind of application we have right now. If all you get in return is "it's been ages!" and "she's just annoying us!", then it's not really fun to provide people with stuff for free anymore.

    Your parents should have taught you the importance of appreciation.
