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.

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!

    seems like sale value is still way off, clubs are not accepting anywhere near what it says on Gs. Hopefully Eugene manages to fix this in the next patch for good, keep up the good work.
  • love_animals's avatar
    no problem, i like to help others :) enjoy my friend! :)
  • Icelolly21's avatar
    :) thank you so much
  • love_animals's avatar
    do this....first start GS, then start steam and fm13....and then in game choose load last game....and when it loads, go back to GS that you already started before starting the game..and then load the game inside GS....when ever i get this error like you on that picture, i do this and works every time... :)
  • love_animals's avatar
    thank you Stam for quick respone. :) Ok, then, i will update my FM version to 13.2.1. the latest, and will let you know if that did the trick. :) thx again
  • Stam's avatar
    @love_animals: Eugene told me that Sports Interactive have changed certain things with the latest 2 patches (13.2 and 13.2.1) and it is hard to make everything in GS13 work properly with all supported patches. I mean GS13 should still work with older patches 13.1.2 and 13.1.3 but most of the new stuff introduced in beta 10 will be wrong (such as reputation, balance, etc). So please update your FM13 to the latest patch 13.2.1 and let us know if that does the trick.
  • love_animals's avatar
    I just downloaded beta 10 version, and everything is messed up. Sale value is completely wrong, for example, it says 114K...and i offer 5M and still they balance is off completely, some weird numbers like -5165644654, or 265464664....transfer and wage budgets dont show at all....stadium capacity also some weird numbers like -5315165, or bargains list are not visible anywhere i look in beta 10....the only thing that works is club reputation, and loading problem is fixed, other things completely weird. :( :( :( I am playing FM13 version it maybe becouse of that or what? do i need to update my FM13 version to 13.2.1?.....this is all messed up. :( can somebody HELP PLEASE...thx :(

    New beta 10 is now available and all known issues have been solved with it. Sale value for players finally works (even though not 100% accurate), also club reputation, balance, transfer budgets and stadium capacity. Enjoy!

    @BlackSwan: Is there anything special about the older saves (e.g. using custom editor data files)? At any case, try the new beta 10 and let us know if it helps.

    @Loopa1: No. Donating for 12g doesn't mean you're entitled to get 13g as well. So there's no way you saw that anywhere on this site. For some different tool on another site perhaps.

    @love_animals: It wasn't working properly in previous builds anyway. But new beta 10 should have that 100% accurate.

    @Ayrton9972 @dams83560 @ck0403my: There was a typo in the update check file, which has been fixed. Beta 10 is now available though.
  • BlackSwan's avatar
    I am now happy to report that since the update, Genie will now at least load my NEW games. Still refuses to load my existing 3 season game though, and now returns the following error message:
  • Loopa1's avatar
    If I donated for the 12g version, do I not get the 13g version without needing to donate again? Thought I'd seen this somewhere...?
  • ck0403my's avatar
    i checked again, got the update for beta 9 build 336, but the link given by 13g "check for new version" is wrong.
    Anyway, i changed the "b335" in the download link to "b336", and it works!
  • dams83560's avatar
    i can't dowload the latest update gs13g give me a link of the version I already have (Beta8)
  • love_animals's avatar
    guys I have a question. :/ in GS beta 7 there was visible balance account from every club in the game, now in beta 8 and 9 is not visible anymore :O :O :O ...why is that? did Eugene remove that or it is something else? :( pls response guys. :(
  • Ajzak_FCRS's avatar
    Great work! Thanks!
  • vuwrr's avatar
    I can confirm that Beta 9 has been sent out. May need to check your spam folder just in case :)
  • Ayrton9972's avatar
    No "g" edition update at the moment and no notification but is Christmas so think only to your family Eugene and Merry Christmas to all !!!
  • Stam's avatar
    @vuwrr: Thanks for your kind words! :)

    @ck0403my @tasos: Eugene told me he updated the "g" edition at the same time, and sent notification to "g" owners about it. Can you check again please?
  • vuwrr's avatar
    I enjoy using this scouting tool of yours and while I like the fact that SI are so eager to push out fixes that undoubtedly annoy the more attentive players, its making the life harder for guys like you who provide us these wonderful tools.

    Considering the whole Christmas debacle I must say that I am surprised and thankful that you push out updates as fast as you do and hope you know that it is very much appreciated by nerds such as myself :)

    I hope you take time to enjoy the holidays in between making sure we are happy.

    Best regards,
  • areastill's avatar
