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.

    @stam Thanks man. :D

    - While you are in FM, go to Preferences.
    - Un-tick "Compress Save Games" and hit Confirm.
    - Save your game again.
  • sayitstuesday's avatar
    Sorry @stam, how do you uncompress the game? My bad, but I don't know how to.
  • Stam's avatar
    italia24, 99% of your comments are "when". you begin to annoy me, so stop making the same question over and over.

    sayittuesday, what is so hard to understand? make your game uncompressed and try again.
  • sayitstuesday's avatar
    I tried to save but this came out.

    "Game cannot be saved
    Only non-compressed save games can be saved at the moment."

    What do I do to save? Please advise thanks! :D
  • Dunkel's avatar
    I'm reverting regarding the error message recieved when editing clubs. As far as I understand, for me, this occurs when transfer budgets are altered.
  • italia24's avatar
    when will we be able to edit people e.g. palyers, managers etc?
  • zedster93's avatar
    Wonderful to be able to save the game! Just great work Littleblue!!
  • Stam's avatar
    wip = work in progress
  • Dunkel's avatar
    Thanks for the work this far! What is a WIP?

    I have tried to save different values under clubs, got this message:

    "Invalid Transfer Info Type
    Unknown Type - 33 at offset 1177143"

    Will try to isolate the error by only editing one value at a time.
  • littleblue's avatar
    see the check list - it's a WIP so awards, cities, clubs are savable now. Im doing it incrementally - patience, young skywalker ;) This is hardly an abandoned project :P
  • italia24's avatar
    Does the saving work now?
  • littleblue's avatar
    a few minutes ago ;o)
  • italia24's avatar
    when is the next release?
  • Stam's avatar
    editing shouldn't work yet
  • marcosfonseca's avatar
    Hello, after change my save game, when loaded in FM, it doesn't changed
    please help
    Merry Christmas from Portugal
  • Dunkel's avatar
    No more crashes. Loads quick and "feels" steady. Im using 0.21 now.
  • italia24's avatar
    when is the save gonna work?
  • Jiyefuu's avatar
    na, i'm just saying that the saving doesnt work yet.. just take ur time. :yes
  • Dunkel's avatar
    I will send it when I get back from work.

    Keep up the good work!
  • littleblue's avatar
    jiyefuu - can you be more descriptive?
    Dunkel - can you send me a crash report?
  • italia24's avatar
    i jus looking forward till the save works
  • Dunkel's avatar
    Now it loads up for me, just random crashes when opening certain folders, like kits and something else. Will get back.

    One question; is it possible to view/edit a club's reputation? I think this influences the odds given ahead of every game, I have tried a little with the OEM editor and if you give a crappy squad a seriously high "reputation" said squad will be favourites against almost any opposition, regardless of the status of the squad.
  • Jiyefuu's avatar
    i tried, n it doesnt work since its beta.. when will it work??
  • riderman's avatar
    thank you so much littleblue. You are an angel!
