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.

    Well I sure hope that there will be support for Tiger!
    Please and thanks Amy/littleblue! :)
  • CageTheAnderson's avatar

  • CageTheAnderson's avatar
    Is there 10.2.0 supprt coming soon?
  • forster's avatar
    Be patient guys. Be patient. Amy is doing a great job here, start recognizing it or get the hell away from here. :)
  • Jiyefuu's avatar
    what about player saving?
  • Dunkel's avatar
    Great stuff :-)
  • Stam's avatar
    Thank you Amy :beer
    We love you :D
  • littleblue's avatar
    well there are places you can monitor where and when im doing stuff but I have been taking it easy over the new year. However, the changes that are FINISHED so far for the next release (0.4) are:

    - added competition saving
    - added continent saving
    - added currency saving
    - added injury saving
    - added media saving
    - added language saving
    - added shortlist creation from scout results

    (this list will be changed and added to before next release)
  • Dunkel's avatar
    She sure does. But it is always nice to know about the progress.
  • Stam's avatar
    :rofl 6 days = ages :chevvoi

    hmmm... I guess littleblue deserves some vacation
  • italia24's avatar
    when is the next update? its been ages
  • Grunners's avatar
    I've never used an in-game editor, but looks like the game has thrown a bug which means I'll be forced too!
  • byroncuff's avatar
    Can you generate a shortlist file from the scout?
  • Dunkel's avatar
    Is "reputation" the only thing that still can't be edited under "Clubs"?
  • afro_13's avatar
    ok. so. i have changed scouting knowledge in editor but in game nothing happened... maybe i have done something wrong but maybe it can be a bug...
  • Dunkel's avatar
    And it is a very rewarding task for someone who is prone to whininng; test it and tell them what is wrong with it. Great :-)
  • mantralux's avatar
    italia24, I've told you this before and I'll tell you once again:

    This is an early beta version, and the only way to speed the process up is to actually help out in bug testing the application yourself. The more information the developer has, the quicker it will be done.

    As long as we're still below a 1.0 version, it will not be complete.

    In this early stage (0.30) it's not even worth installing if you're not interested in beta testing the application.

    Also, since it's one person doing it (for fun, and on her spare time), there is no deadline and it's IMPOSSIBLE to tell you when the app will be finished. Anything can happen, we might not see a finished version until 2011. But we might see it next week.

    You will have to wait and see, and you will have to realize that asking will not speed up the process. It's just annoying.

    When littleblue has a realistic timeframe for release, I assure you she will post it in the top article. Be patient.
  • saplingg's avatar
    its an open beta peeps so dont expect too much if u decide to download
  • italia24's avatar
    thank you very much Jackt. all i want to know is "when" the editing will work properly on people
  • Stam's avatar
    i could just ignore all the "when", but it gets annoying mate. it will be ready when it's ready. littleblue is doing her best, releasing frequent updates, adding a little something each time.

    it's not a valid question since littleblue didn't feel like answering it thus far, so why keep asking?

    it's not about daring, it's about being patient and realistic. if you really want an estimate, i'd probably fail this completely and say 2 months to final version. happy now? you can start blaming me 2 months from now again.
  • Jackt's avatar
    Stam: it's sad that you need to be rude to reply to italia24. "When" is evidently the most relevant question to most of us. 80 posts and no one dared venture a rough, ballpark estimate for the save feature.

    A week? A month? Six months? It's a valid question. No one is pressuring you, so no need to be so jumpy about it.
  • Jiyefuu's avatar
    i havent tried saving, but just a few pointers, i cant seem to be able to click to the section where i am supposed to type something.. if u get what i mean.. so i cant type to search.. and it is lagging really badly.. :shock
  • Varch's avatar
    0.30 installed and scout seems doesn't works. Is it normal?

    Maybe, as well as "fixed-list", could be useful a "things-that-works list", 'cause i don't understand what is "ok" and what is WIP :con

    One more for littleblue :beer
  • sayitstuesday's avatar
    Are there still certain things that you can't change about the club even though you can save it? Because I can't seem to change my finances.
