The popular, one and only savegame compatible scout utility returns for Football Manager 2010. As promised, we have exclusively released the most anticipated utility for FM 2010.

Updated: 31 Mar 2010 v1.11 build 116
Released: 10 Nov 2009 RC 1 build 110

Compatible with: Windows XP, Vista, 7 and FM 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 10.3
Note: Since RC 2 there is support for compressed save games!

Donate to get the "no ads" version
Since v1.0 Genie Scout comes in two versions. One with ads and one with no ads. In order to get the "no ads" one you'll have to donate to Eugene first, using the donation form on Genie homepage here.
Important: 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, so it could take some time until your donation is processed.

How to run:
* Download the zipped archive and extract it anywhere.
* You'll get a folder named "FM Genie Scout 10". Open it.
* Double click on FMGenieScout.exe
* Load your savegame... you don't need to have FM open of course.
That's it! No frameworks required.

If you're using RC1, your savegame needs to be uncompressed to load in Genie.
So, while you are in FM, make sure you un-tick "Compress Save Games" in Preferences page and hit Confirm. After that, save your game again. Now you are ready to load it up on FM Genie Scout 10!

Does it work for Mac?
Mac users check out this article by macooz: Fm Genie Scout for Mac with CrossOver.

Thanks to wizard for letting us know, you can get make your Genie Scout work without the crashing/freezing issues if you update Flash Player, or just do what wizard says.
* Take a look at the Issues with v1.11 topic for more details.

If errors still appear, please take the following actions:
* Upload your save game with the problem somewhere (e.g. FileFront)
* Make a post on this forum section, explaining your problem and giving a link to your save game

If you don't provide your problematic savegame, it's unlikely that Eugene will able to fix the problem.

Languages included:
- Chinese Simple - English - French - Italian - Portuguese - Russian - Spanish - Swedish - Ukrainian - Turkish (RC 2)

Redistribution Policy: People who want to put this on their sites, be polite and give link back to the official FM Genie Scout page here on

Data file seems to be corrupt. Wanted to read 270533128 bytes, could only read 74149944 bytes.

Anyone with the same problem? :/

I cant seem to load a saved games. Im using windows 7 ultimate 64 and half way during loading fm genie scout freezes, when I click the fm genie scout window it says "not responding". Will this be fixed in the new version. Pls. I want this so much! Thanks

Damn, this doesnt work with the steam version:cry

This program is always top notch though so thanks in advance. I just hope the steam issue gets sorted out sooner rather than later

kraex2009-11-11 04:05
I saved one of my earlier games uncompressed and the scout worked fine, so I'm guessing it's something with that save game, something that hasn't been seen yet.

You need to un-tick "Compress Save Games" in Preferences page and hit Confirm. After that, save your game again. Then load it up in Genie.

If error persists, please take the following actions:
* Upload your save game with the problem somewhere (FileFront, RapidShare, etc)
* Make a post on this forum section, explaining your problem and giving a link to your save game

If someone is kind enough to upload it to FileFront and give me the link, I'll add it as alternative on this page. My internet connection doesn't allow me to upload anything at the moment.
