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

Thanks to Eugene Tarabanovsky for staying around and updating his amazing scout utility for FM 2010.

pushI speak my mind and I speak the truth. FM Scout is my brainchild and I try to make it a better place every year. I consider myself a lucky man for being able to turn this website into an engaging and vibrant community.

Kev09 how did you get it to load??

mascherdinho2010-03-30 10:00
Hi there,

I seem to be having the same problem as mentioned above.
"Error Loading Entity Number: 30
File Position: 13577827
Database Version: 1404
Person Data seems to be corrupt."

Tried running some older savegames with patch 1&2 and they seem to be working fine with the latest geniescout. Have not tampered with the gamedata by using the real time editor or anything else but patch 3 versions will just not run with the new geniescout.

Hope it can all be sorted soon. Appreciate it!

bidzapfc2010-03-29 17:11
same problem here
imam osećaj da ovaj Genie nije ništa radio od kako je izašao 10.3 i sinoć uhvatio da se zeza na framework-u i izbacio ovu glupost... kao kompatibilna je sa 10.3 ali ne sa novim igrama!?! zaboga... mislim poštovanje za to što ima druga posla, i za sve što je do sada uradio... ali brate!!! ili ga uradi lepo ili ne izbacuj ništa... respekt :beer

chintaf2010-03-29 16:49
It works on my old save game but when I try to load my latest game that I started on 10.3 I get the error message:
