I haven't seen any mention of Genie Scout for FM13, does anyone know if it'll be released this year?

Yes. I would like to know if there will be a Genie Scout 2013. I really hope so.

For the last 3/4 years Genie has released his scout around January time, he has to have time to write the new code!?

There will be lesser scouts available sooner, but they're not as easy to use and don't have the same aesthetic/functionality, for example they don't have a tick box that show the players improvement based on PA...

Yeah i know but normally we have some sort of announcment along the lines of "It will be available again, not sure when yet." But this year, nothing.

Given that FM 2013 hasn't officially been released yet, at least not in complete sense of the word, it would be pretty daft to give a possible release of Genie 13.

And please...Could we have one for mac?
There's more and more mac users playing FM and it's pain in the ... to use it via wine... It doesn't work properly with the new iOS

I donated and emailed Eugene at the beginning of October saying I was hoping he would be working on Genie Scout for FM2013 and he replied "I'd love to make GS for FM13."

That was all he said but let's hope he finds the time :)

Do you guys know if the source code for Genie is Open Source and available somewhere.

If not if there is a open source framework for reading and parsing the save game files.

It's obviously a binary file but I have no idea how to parse it correctly. I was thinking about messing around until Genie comes out.

No, Genie Scout is not open source.

But there's a scouting tool for Mac which is open source.
I'm referring to FMSX, you can browse source here.
Whatever happens in your every day life, coming here should be an escape from it; so cheer up and talk FM :)

Yeah I checked it out but I can't get it to match the current save game file in FM 2013. I heard somewhere that they encrypt the save game file now to make sure scout tools won't work. Can you confirm if this is true are false?

You are reading "Genie Scout 13".
