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.

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!

  • Mourinho's avatar
    why genie scout 13 doesn't work for 13.0.0?
  • hangson's avatar
    it doesn't show players' preferred moves in genie scout and I can't search the players
    by using preferred moves filter either.

    Could you please fix that?
  • vkalem's avatar
    Genie, thank you for the comments and information on the new rating system. I just love the logical relation btw the current potential and the best rating in the old system. Now lets say a striker with 160 CA has 75 rating, but a goalkeeper with the same CA has only 68 rating. But if thats the way FM understands, than we should get used to it in time...
  • Genie's avatar
    Previous rating system (which was created 3 years ago) is based mostly on technical and physical attributes.

    But recently mental characteristics play much more significant role in Football Manager than few years before. New rating system takes it into account, and new system better reflects real skills in the way FM 'understand' it.

    Regarding significant difference between Messi and Ronaldo. Let's compare them by the most important attributes:

    Messi - Ronaldo

    Crossing 15-13 (+2)
    Dribbling 20-17 (+3)
    Finishing 20-19 (+1)
    First Touch 20-15 (+5)
    Passing 19-15 (+4)
    Technique 20-17 (+3)
    Composure 19-14 (+5)
    Creativity 20-13 (+7)
    Decisions 18-14 (+4)
    Flair 20-18 (+2)
    Off The Ball 18-18 (0)
    Teamwork 13-4 (+9!)
    Acceleration 20-16 (+4)
    Agility 20-17 (+3)
    Pace 15-19 (-4)

    Messi outperforms Ronaldo in 13 out of 15 the most important attributes with 3-4 points difference in average! I agree that in real life they are very close in terms of skills, but I believe the problem is that in Football Manager Ronaldo is really underestimated. And new rating system reflects this fact really good.
  • vkalem's avatar
    Im a "g" user. I think the new (13g v1.0) "best rating" calculations are not realistic. Messi 91.70 (FS), the second best player is Terry 86.39 (DC), Ronaldo is the 13th best player with 83.45 (FS)??? Okay Messi is the best :) but there is no such difference btw messi and ronaldo in real life! and Terry is not the best centre back in the world! Also there are only 40 GK in the world with best rating higher than 70.

    I gave a try to public version of Genie, the ratings are different from "g" version and they are much more realistic.
  •'s avatar
    What's wrong with the newest edition? All the stats are completely wrong. Messi has like around 8-10 at passin, pace, finishing, aggression, etc. Using Windows 8.
  • Messy's avatar
    also would be cool to export all the player stats to excel

  • thewandererandhisshadow's avatar
    Yes, I have version 13.3.2. I just checked on the preferences screen, as you advised.
  • klausen's avatar
    I´m having big problems downloading the new Genie update, every time I try to download it a window pops up saying:
    "the file could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.

    Try again later or contact the server admin."
