FM Genie Scout 14 - Exclusive
Welcome Genie Scout 14! The best scout tool for Football Manager 2014.
Exclusively available from for yet another year :)

FM Genie Scout (or Genie Scout in short) is world's most popular scouting tool for Football Manager, created to extend the possibilities of finding, sorting and shortlisting players and staff, controlling their progress, making "first 11" and tactics choice easier and observing attributes invisible in FM.

Released: 2 December 2013 - v1.0 build 411
Updated: 10 April 2014 - v1.2 build 418

There are no new features compared to Genie Scout 13, except the addition of all the new player roles in FM14 (enganche, false nine etc). During closed beta stage, Eugene focused on making all GS13 functions available for GS14 and fixed all bugs that came to surface. As a result, the public edition should be quite stable from the very first version.

Donate to get the "g" edition

As usual, Genie Scout 14 comes in two editions. One with ads and one with no ads (we will refer to it as the "g" edition). In order to get the "no ads" one you'll have to donate to Eugene first, using the Donate to Eugene page.

Genie Scout 14g FAQ

Eugene has automatized the process of distribution for the "g" edition, so people will only have to wait a few minutes before they will get a download link and a key file. But only if they have sent correct contact email, correct Unique ID along with the donation.
Make sure you check your Spam folder too.
If Eugene doesn't have his computer open at the time of donation, it might take up to 24 hours or longer (until he opens it). In case of problem with your donation, please contact Eugene using the email address you'll see in the message after donation.

Apart from no ads, the "g" edition has 4 extra features:
  • Probability of Development :
    A statistically based model that will show the probability of reaching theoretical maximum of players ability
  • Progress Rate :
    Shows the predicted speed of player's development, depending on his ambition, determination, professionalism etc
  • Support for Graphics :
    If you have custom facepacks and/or kitpacks added to your FM, it should show on player and team profiles on GS
  • Top Players Lists :
    Automatically generated lists for best players, most promising and top bargains in the world, by position

Please note that during the first run of "g" edition it may take a few minutes to create the graphic packs cache. Next time it will be loaded much faster.

FM Scout (the site) is not involved in the donations towards Eugene, neither has any responsibility delivering the ad-free version to you after donation. This is a process handled solely by Eugene himself.

@x2u: It was a temporary problem related to the host of the 2 ads inside the application. Should be gone now as the problem was fixed yesterday.

@joeyvbh: Not sure. How long did you wait? Depending on the database size of your savegame and your computer's speed, it might take a while to finish loading this last part. But normally after maybe 15-20 seconds it should be loaded.

x2u2014-09-14 09:14

it's working perfectly fine until now. Everytime I open the program it said script error and it always showing an error message "The requested resource is in use".

Please let me know how to fix this.. thanks

joeyvbh2014-08-28 10:58
When i load a game it stays suck at "Loading/updating people indexes".
How can i solve this so i can use this fantastic programme?

Group Stam2014-07-30 17:29
@flipward: Please have a look at the instructional guide to Genie Scout if you're unsure about how to use the program. But this tool has nothing to do with Steam, you won't find it there. It works as simple as this: Open FM14 > Load a savegame on FM14 > Open GS14 > Load game > Search for players.

@glasschimera: I don't really know. Perhaps your Win 8 version isn't compatible with GS14.

@charlidaag: When trying to run the setup file or when trying to open the program? If it's the first case, please extract the setup file first and then run it.

@dinsorseedum: If GS14 fails to load a savegame for you, it might mean that this particular save has some unknown data the program is unable to read (could happen when installing custom databases).

@Zaoza: That's weird. I tried adding players to a shortlist and then importing that in-game and it worked as intended. Are you sure you're importing the appropriate file?

@Kelt: Normally you should be able to decline/skip any offer and get on with the GS14 installation. I've alerted the ad agency to look into this offer and disable it.

@PS07: Hmm, that could be a bug. I've passed it to Eugene.

@Michielrafc @rammie2011 @Ulster1982: 6,80 MB is the proper size. There was a problem with bytes calculation while using Google for it. Download and extraction both work fine on my end. Try re-downloading please.

@thefatdudeuk: You unique ID changes when you format your hard drive or re-install Windows or change computer. This means you need a new key file in every case. Simply email Eugene, explain you want to use GS14 on another computer of yours, pass him the unique ID for that, and he will send you the file(s) you need without having to donate again.

@jeebiev @RedGladiator @Robert Harg: Make sure to check your email's spam/junk area. If you're having problem, avoid sending private messages to Eugene - email him instead: genie AT fmscout DOT com

@Giorgos: Not sure why you get that. Maybe you had FM14 open and GS14 idle for too long, and might just need to re-load the savegame on GS14.

@Traquan: Sadly there's no solution to the sale value issue. SI have made the sale value algorithm too complex to crack, so I'm afraid we can abandon all hope as things stand. Regarding the feature request for role ratings, I agree. I've passed it to Eugene but I can't promise you if/when it will be implemented.

@fmscoutfan: Do you still have the transfer budget problem?

Ulster19822014-07-30 15:02
The download link seems to be broken. (I have tried different browsers/locations/pc's but it always fails half way through the download). Is there anywhere else I can download it please? Thanks :)

flipward2014-07-13 11:48

glasschimera2014-07-12 18:26
The install isn't working for me. I have Windows 8. Every time it immediately says it's not responding. Any help would be great.

charlidaag2014-07-01 08:32

dinsorseedum2014-07-01 06:46

Please help me how to use GS 14g 14.3.1 step by step for use this program.

Because I use this program first time.

Thank you very much.

Robert Harg2014-05-16 18:49
Hi Eugene, Hi Stam, Hi All

I recently purchased your Genie Scout 14g, I received the file with the "G" version on Wednesday(14th) evening I have waited patiently to receive my key file so I can then use the "G" version.

I have checked spam folders and the key file email is not there. Now I know the email says to wait 24 hours I passed 48 hours waiting now, so basically I was wondering if I am going to receive my key file anytime in the near future.


rammie20112014-05-10 14:04
im trying to download genie scout... but everytime it interrupts at 5% and only downloads that... then look at how much of its downloaded it says only 6.80mb... go to extract then it says file corrupt or damaged or some crap... can someone post a link for the correct full set up file please.

Zaoza2014-04-30 13:38
Hey, I got the G edition and for some reason I cant add my shortlists. I'm playing in Skrill north, havent tried in other leagues yet. But what seems to be happening is:

No matter who or what is in the shortlist, it will only import players that I have reciently viwed the profile of.

I made a shortlist of Strikers, but before making it I viewed the profiles of 5 defenders. The shortlist I import will be of those 5 defenders and none of the strikers will show up unless I view their profiles as well.

Kelt2014-04-26 19:17
Can't install Genie Scout without installing some spyware from 'Freesofttoday' as there is no 'skip' option available. Is allowing Genie Scout to install the spyware the only way to install for free?

RedGladiator2014-04-23 01:38
I sent payment on 10th april and received no key file. I sent euguene a private message 24 hours later, no reply to date. What now?

PS072014-04-16 15:23
Hello everyone,

I have a concern about Genie Scout. To charge the non worries but when I go to the profile of a player I do not have access to historical savepoints I do. I attached the file to save points but I do not have the historical reference to the player.

Do you know why?

thank you

glenbino2014-04-14 21:31

Have you e-mailed Eugene? If you use the same e-mail address you used to buy the g edition to contact him, he'll hook you up. I had my new unique ID in less than 24 hours when my last laptop bit the dust.

Michielrafc2014-04-14 20:32
Everty time I want to extract the file, I get this error:

Also, as said by someone before, my file is sized 6.8 instead of 7.1 MB

thefatdudeuk2014-04-14 19:36
bit fed up now - asked weeks ago how to get it swapped to my new laptop ..???

jeebiev2014-04-14 15:37
Hi guys - hope someone can help. I got my 'g' download email on Friday, but haven't got my keyfile yet... really eager to start using it. Could you work your magic, please and get the email elves to send it on.


Giorgos2014-04-13 10:41
Hey people I have a pro with the new version of genie scout 14.3.1 i have already loaded it since the first season of my game but now I am in 1st July 2014 and it seems I get a msg when I run the program saying list index out of bound wtf?

Traquan2014-04-12 14:41
Good afternoon.

Is there any news on the sale value issue? For me, this is probably the most important feature of Genie Scout. I understood that it is hard to calculate in the current version, but I really hope the calculated sale value can be improved. It is very, very much off right now (f.i. sale value 5M, but bids up to 50M rejected for a foreign young player, not at a rival club). I already use the G version. It would be nice to hear of any progress on this issue.

Furthermore, I would also really like the feature that Glenbino proposes further below:
Would it be possible to insert the role ratings into the main screen by giving them their own columns?

In FM14, I find myself more and more looking for the right player roles in stead of the positions. I think the info is there, could you please implement a search for the player roles in Genie Scout?

fmscoutfan2014-04-12 09:05
Hey! The latest version shows me 0 for every team's transfer budget, initial and remaining. Does anybody else have this problem?

Group Stam2014-04-11 18:58
@maivia: GS14 new version for 14.3.1 was already released yesterday in the afternoon. Just use the "Download Now" button on this page to grab it.

@vajrayana: Norton always seems to have an issue with bundled offer installers. But you can check VirusTotal report (Google owned service) on the latest public version; Norton (Symantec) says it's clean, only Nod32 doesn't like it.

@RedGladiator: No, if you re-install Genie Scout it doesn't change your Unique ID. Unique ID is changed when you update Windows (e.g. from 7 to 8) or when you format your computer. It's unique per computer and per OS configuration.

@Dommi: That's strange. Are you referring to the public version or the "g" one?

@glenbino: Could be possible, I want to see that too actually. Not sure if Eugene is willing to add new features now though.

@J_09_P: I'm not sure I understand. Can you please provide a screenshot?

maivia2014-04-11 10:32
when the genie update for the 14.3.1 will be realeased??

glenbino2014-04-11 06:54
@RedGladiator Check your e-mail. Eugene sent out the new version of the "g" edition this morning.
