FM 2013 Tools - FM Genie Scout 13 - Exclusive
Welcome Genie Scout 13! The best tool for Football Manager 2013.
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: 9 December 2012 - v1.00 beta 7 build 334
Updated: 29 March 2013 - v1.00 final build 344

Redistribution Policy
Want to share GS13 on other sites? Please point the download link to this very page. You cannot host any files yourself.


OS: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8
FM13: 13.3.3, 13.3.2, 13.2.3, 13.2.2, 13.2.1, 13.2, 13.1.3, 13.1.2

Does it work for Mac?
No, and it won't be possible to make it work this time even if you try using Winebottler or similar. GS13 has been rewritten to work by reading data from memory instead of savegame files because of the lock down of savegames in FM13 by Sports Interactive.

However, we exclusively release a special scouting tool for Mac. You should use that.

How to run:

  • Extract the downloaded .zip file and run the setup .exe file.
  • Follow instructions until installation is finished.
  • Run Football Manager 2013 and load your savegame.
  • Launch Genie Scout 13 and from main menu click "Load Game".
That's it! No frameworks required.

Our good member Miguel wrote a detailed instructional guide to Genie Scout. Check it out!

Donate to get the "g" edition

Genie Scout 13 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.

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 key this year. 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 laptop 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.

Bug Reports:

This is a beta release, so there will probably be some bugs we couldn't find while beta testing the scout.

Please find the corresponding version specific topic on our Genie Scout forum and post there! Read this before submitting any bugs!

Any comment including bug report posted on this page will be removed on sight!

Please understand it is forbidden by the EULA from SI and SEGA to export all the data from the results. You should be able to export only basic information such as player name, club, age, etc... the rest information belong to SI and SEGA.


Genie Scout 13 is created by Eugene Tarabanovsky.
He has been producing this program for the past 7 years now, and for that he is a true legend!

    hi I just have a query about the sale price? none the the players I try to sign go for anywhere near the sale price??
  • nufc4ever's avatar
    just a suggestion to make this a bit better for fmscout14 is a role filter so you can search for a certain type of player more easier
  • devilspinky's avatar
    Right, I'm fed up with Genie Scout not working half the time. I complete my FM load, then try and load Genie Scout, at least 75% of the time I get ''Football Manager is not found, Please make sure you're using Football Manager 2013 13.1.2 or higher''. Which I am of course, no matter how many times I try and Run as Admin it just doesn't work on a regular basis. If there is a simple, complete fix for this then could somebody please tell me as it's getting to the point of being rediculous now. I don't want to have to uninstall and re-download every time I want to use it.
