This isn’t really a question, more of a suggestion. I would like to be able to buy the FM editor on google play/App Store for those of us who use FM touch on our tablets. Could you please make an app for this? Thank You!
HI, my save is currently on 31st dec 2020. and fmse cannot load that. any save prior to that point is loadable. I was wondering what is the problem here
I just got licence and everything is ok but it just doesnt load FM. When i hit "load" it starts loading, no notifications and it look like its loading but it never finishes.. Any ideas??
Ok I am struggling with this IGA you say open up FMSE, where do you find it I have the license, but fecked if I can figure out how to register it...Yes, I am simple ..

@Tactician4231: Making FMSE for iOS/Android is not a priority for us. Sorry mate.

@loivang.quangduc: There seems to be a weird issue with that particular date (31.12). Forward your game a day later and FMSE should work.

@toni2244: Find FMSE via the Windows start menu, right-click on it and select "Run as administrator".

@lostkiwi: I assume you installed FMSE19, right? Open the app. Then go to File (top left in blue) > Options. For the "Game Documents" field, click the little folder icon to the right side of it and browse to your FM19 User Folder which by default is this:
C:\Users\[Username]\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2019
Then tick "Enable IGA" checkbox.

If you haven't registered your license yet, while you are in Options screen, go to Registration (tab) > Import License (button) > browse to your license file, click OK > Restart FMSE19.
A simple question, I have owned previous versions, so do i have to pay again? Just a straight yes or no is all i need to know
@toffee71: Yes. A license for FMSE18 covers the lifetime of the 2018 versioning. Will need a new one for FMSE19.
Ok, fair enough, but no more money from me, well over priced, I couldn't get 17 to work at all, gave another chance with 18. But at £6 I will stick with ingame editor at £4 if any at all.
@toffee71: Thanks for supporting the project in the past. :)

I don't really know what was the problem that prevented you from using either FMSE17 or FMSE18 as I can't find any forum posts or comments from you in that regard. However, a license is needed to save your edits; you can try everything without one, and see if it works for you and what it's capable of doing.
I have FM19 19.1.5, but even so I get this error:
"Failed to load Football Manager data: Could not find a compatible Football Manager version."

I do not know if this is the right place to ask a question, keep me informed.

I wanted to know with the purchased version of FMSE 18:
- can we in the edited software and add an additional column (like that of age). If yes, can we make some calculation results?
- if we take for example the FMSE18 verson, the version 19 is also unlocked?

al abrir y hacer lo que me indica , el editor FMSE no carga juego , sale error FAILED TO LOAD FOOTBALL MANAGER DATA; COULD NOT FIND A COMPATIBLE FOOTBALL MANAGER VERSION
when opening and doing what it tells me, the FMSE editor does not load game, FAILED TO LOAD FOOTBALL MANAGER DATA error; COULD NOT FIND A COMPATIBLE FOOTBALL MANAGER VERSION
Loading Game Fails - I have a valid version from GamePass, FMSE does not recognise this. If this isn't fixed, can I get a refund for my license key? Was super excited to use this
i bought the FMSE and I am trying to edit CR7 age, but, I can't found him in the editor.
If, I write his name, he don't appear and I can't find him in Juve. In game he's playing in Juve 37 years old.
