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

    italia24: this is a very early beta version, and the only way to speed the process up is to actually help out in bug testing the application. 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 (0.13) it's not even worth installing if you're not interested in beta testing the application.
  • Stam's avatar
    complete version is a long shot guys, so not very soon. be happy that littleblue is releasing updates almost daily though.
  • patranca's avatar
    the last version sends to me in crash on the menu kit:devil
  • italia24's avatar
    how close are we getting to the complete version? x
  • Grunners's avatar
    italia, instead of posting repeatedly, try reading the notes at the top
  • italia24's avatar
    does the save work on this new version?
  • riderman's avatar
    Looks like OSX 10.5.8 has the most problems of crashing. Any thoughts?
  • Stam's avatar
    Yes, use the issue tracker:
  • mantralux's avatar
    Search function doesn't work when I search by Potential Ability greater than 190 and only regens. It worked fine in v0.10 with the same save.

    Is there a better way of supplying littleblue with beta testing bugs and info, than writing them in this commen thread?
  • riderman's avatar
    sorry I mean FM10sx 0.11
    Still crashes!
  • riderman's avatar
    I'm using OSX 10.5.8,
    FM2010 10.1.1
    and FM10sx 0.1

    also crahes on loading clubs!

    Please help!

    PS thank you Littleblue!
  • Dunkel's avatar

    FM10SX 0.10, OS X 10.5.8 and FM2010 10.1.1
  • patranca's avatar
    the optimal job and, I have 10.6.2, 4 gb of ram does not go in crash. aspect the definitive one:D:D:D:D
  • littleblue's avatar
    FlorisF - does it crash half way through? if you can send me your savegame I can fix that issue
  • Stam's avatar
    no idea, littleblue didn't tell me yet... but probably more crash fixes among other things
  • italia24's avatar
    what are the changes in the version 0.10?
  • FlorisF's avatar
    Every time when loading players, FM10SX crashes - both compressed and uncompressed. Snow Leopard over here.
  • vitomins's avatar
    Well changed to uncompressed, and it still crashes...I wonder whats up?
  • vitomins's avatar
    Do the files need to be uncompressed? Or can they be compressed like with the new Genie Scout?
  • Wolf_Wolf's avatar
    How can I put a club into another competition?
  • andreksi's avatar
    10.6.2 and working ok, also waiting save option ;)
  • afro_13's avatar
    i also have 10.6.2 and its working. waiting for save option...
  • vitomins's avatar
    Mine crashes also...I am guessing that this does not work on Snow Leopard yet? I am running OS X 10.6.2.....
  • Dunkel's avatar
    No, this is just for testing. Like it says in the description; save function will come in a few days.
  • italia24's avatar
    So does the data editor now work when saving?
