FM 2014 Tools - FM Genie Scout 14 - Exclusive
Welcome Genie Scout 14! The best scout tool for Football Manager 2014.
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: 2 December 2013 - v1.0 build 411
Updated: 10 April 2014 - v1.2 build 418

There are no new features compared to Genie Scout 13, except the addition of all the new player roles in FM14 (enganche, false nine etc). During closed beta stage, Eugene focused on making all GS13 functions available for GS14 and fixed all bugs that came to surface. As a result, the public edition should be quite stable from the very first version.

Donate to get the "g" edition

As usual, Genie Scout 14 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.

Genie Scout 14g FAQ

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 a key file. 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 computer 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.

    Thank you

    To my mate Eugene Tarabanovsky,
    I have been donating to receive the 'g' Edition of FM Scout ever since the time you started accepting donations. Been more than a couple of years now, but I hate to see what was once regarded as the undisputed best scouting tool for Football Manager (in the days of FM 2008), has since been over-taken and over-shadowed by FMRTE.

    Over the past couple of years, Football Manager itself has re-invented itself continuously. More conspicuous of note, is the emergence of 'Player Roles'. All this while, FM Scout has not undergone any massive change in the calculation of the player's 'Best Rating' and the 'Best Potential Rating'. The Attributes considered to calculate important player positions is highly flawed on FM Scout. eg: for Fast Strikers, important Attributes such as Concentration, Heading are not weighed at all, while the weighing of the remaining Attributes is flawed such as the weighing Creativity, Flair, etc. is unnecessarily high for certain player positions.

    Every single year, Moderators and SI Staff have cleared the attribute weighing system innumerable times, to specifically let users know the attributes responsible for the Match Engine calculation. There was a table posted by one Moderator too, a few months back explaining it all. A simple Google search for the above table would have sufficed. Yes, you have provided the ability for the users to alter the weighing calculation system, but it is a pain-stakingly long process every time. Especially over the last 2 years, FM Scout has become stale.

    I hereby request you please not to repeat the same mistakes for FM Scout 2015. I've waited the whole year to let you know just before your tool is out, so you can make the necessary changes.

    1. Please do the much awaited Player Rating Coefficients re-vamp.
    At present, the FM Scout profile of C.Ronaldo (Real Madrid) says 'Cristiano Ronaldo is almost as good as Carlos Tevez'. What?
    And for Oscar (Chelsea) it says, 'Oscar is the best player in the world in his role'

    On changing the Player Rating Coefficient calculation to the correct attributes as intended by Sports Interactive (which took me about 2 hours), it now reads correctly saying that C.Ronaldo is the best in the world in the Right Attacking Midfielder position. Lionel Messi is the best in the Fast Striker position, followed by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Luiz Suarez, Edinson Cavani and Robert Lewandowski. Previously, Samuel Eto, Carlos Tevez and Guiseppe Rossi were rated as the best after Messi.

    For Attacking Midfield positions, after changing to the correct attributes, it correctly recognizes David Silva, Mesut Ozil, Isco, Cesc Fabregas, Mario Goetze and Marik Hamsik as better AMCs than Oscar, which I'm sure is how SI and the rest of the world sees it.

    2. Hidden Attributes DO NOT COST CA! SI have cleared this a million times on their forums. Yet, every edition of FM Scout since eternity 'adds' free Attribute points to the Hidden Attributes on clicking 'Show Potential Attributes'.
    No, free Attribute points add the to visible player attributes only. Hidden Attributes DO NOT COST any CA!

    3. Please re-name the following attributes:
    - Jumping to Jumping Reach
    - Influence to Leadership
    - Creativity to Vision
    The first two attributes should have changed in the last year's version!

    4. Please do not use all possible colours from the colour palette for the attributes. It just gets confusing. Please use three colours only. Red or White for the very low; Yellow for the medium; Green for the top attributes.
    A lot of users find this extremely inconvenient when spending hours going through player profiles. Un-ticking 'Highlighted Attributes' doesn't solve the issue. But it does take out the unnecessary Red and Orange coloured attributes making it a bit bearable. Please do resolve the issue with three standard colours only.

    5. The last request is a decent background skin for the player profiles. No need of those eye hurting Steklo skins please. Even a plain black background would make the player profile and attributes easier to read, making FM Scout heaps better. And would be a huge upgrade over the current rubbish skins.

    Myself and my huge friends circle on our network game have been donating to your project and to FMTRE as well, every single year. As paying members, we logically see these additions as the only reason to buy FM Scout 2015 for another year. With the rapid evolution of FMRTE, it seems pointless at the moment contributing for a stale product.
    I'm sure, the above mentioned 5 changes would not be hard to implement. It would make the Football Manager experience a lot better for a whole lot better for the rest of the community. And especially by re-hauling the Player Ratings Calculation, a lot people would realize why their FM Scouted potentially best wonder-kid in the world is not banging goals in.

    @Radziulo: This is how it should be, of course. But new offers are added from time to time without us knowing and once in a while we receive complaints for them. We deal with it by requesting their removal or their update to include "skip" option. Anyway, as of today we have removed all offers from the GS14 installer.

    @StefanCP: We've alerted the ad agency to fix this. But in the meantime, we've removed the offers from the installer as GS15g is now available and we'd rather avoid any possible misunderstandings for those who get GS14 to find their unique ID.
    To get a new key file for a version you have already donated for, simply email Eugene and ask him: genie AT fmscout DOT com
    We don't control the offers shown during installation, we are simply embedding their code for that step. So they're actually dynamic and country-specific. These offers have nothing to do with the 2 banner ads inside the program.

    @Vashti @serhataydin: Genie Scout 15g is already available, check out this article: FM Genie Scout for FM15 is confirmed. The public edition should be released next month at some point.
  • Radziulo's avatar
    I agree with StefanCP and daltontr- I don't want to install all these programs and apps. Please put the 'skip' option on every step of installation;)
  • StefanCP's avatar
    I have the same problem as daltontr regarding the free version of this. I own the payed one too, but I am too lazy to retrieve it ( I guess I have to send an email, and I need it now ). The Genieo special offer cannot be refused for fm scout 14. I have only Back, Next and Cancel available, unlike the others. Back gets me back to the previous option, Next it says that I will install Genieo ( no way Jose ), Cancel cancels the installation.


    PS: How do I retrieve my payed version? I send an email to someone?

    And mind me asking this, but how can the add agency be responsible for that? They do not control your coding, I am a programmer and online advertiser, Next, Back, Cancel buttons are yours to be done, they could barely control the add content, not even that in your current layout ( meaning that the ads are not dynamic, you added them there, yet they don't affect the buttons, which are all about functionality and cannot be messed with ).

    Dear Admin,

    I know it is still early to ask about g edition scout 15 but when we can expect to donate fir gn scout 15 and start to use it? Right after the game release or it takes for a while after it?
  • Vashti's avatar
    Nevermind, I figured it out. It turns out I can't use the EXE for the free version to unlock the G edition and have to install a completely different EXE to use the keyfile and G edition.

    Got a quick email too saying the same thing! This is a great tool with great support... can't wait for GS for FM15!
  • Vashti's avatar
    So I donated $5 and got my key file. I placed it inside the Genie Scout folder (meaning, it's in the same folder as FMGenieScout.exe). However, my GS still have ads and none of the "G" features are unlocked. Do I need to re-install or what? I'm using version 14.3.1_b418
  • bolouswki's avatar
    Got sorted the following day folks - fully functional now! Thanks Eugene!
  • bolouswki's avatar
    Great program - recently reinstalled it on a new PC so I need a new key file sent to me. What's the normal turnaround for Eugene? Mailed yesterday and no reply - might be on holidays - any other admins can pick it up? :)
  • Stam's avatar
    @daltontr: We get such complaints from time to time and we do our best to rectify the issues. We don't control the offers shown during installation of the public edition, but whenever there's problem we contact the ad agency to fix it. Normally you should be able to decline/skip any offer and get on with the GS14 installation. I've alerted Somoto (the ad agency) to look into this offer and either remove it or make it possible to be skipped. I'm hoping it should be sorted within the day; I'll update my comment when I hear back from them.
  • daltontr's avatar
    I'm fairly new to Football Manager and I've just discovered this program. I have no problem donating, but I'd like to be able to download and try it first. However, you can't skip or decline the ISpeedPC installation and I have no intention of installing some malware app, just to demo the program.

    I don't like the deceptive nature of these all too common installers, but forcing users to install an unknown and unwanted application is simply unacceptable.

    So, I decided to go ahead and donate to Eugene, but I have install the application first, before I can send my unique ID. How am I supposed to do that, without installing the malware!?!

  • Stam's avatar
    @x2u: It was a temporary problem related to the host of the 2 ads inside the application. Should be gone now as the problem was fixed yesterday.

    @joeyvbh: Not sure. How long did you wait? Depending on the database size of your savegame and your computer's speed, it might take a while to finish loading this last part. But normally after maybe 15-20 seconds it should be loaded.
  • x2u's avatar

    it's working perfectly fine until now. Everytime I open the program it said script error and it always showing an error message "The requested resource is in use".

    Please let me know how to fix this.. thanks
  • joeyvbh's avatar
    When i load a game it stays suck at "Loading/updating people indexes".
    How can i solve this so i can use this fantastic programme?
  • Stam's avatar
    @flipward: Please have a look at the instructional guide to Genie Scout if you're unsure about how to use the program. But this tool has nothing to do with Steam, you won't find it there. It works as simple as this: Open FM14 > Load a savegame on FM14 > Open GS14 > Load game > Search for players.

    @glasschimera: I don't really know. Perhaps your Win 8 version isn't compatible with GS14.

    @charlidaag: When trying to run the setup file or when trying to open the program? If it's the first case, please extract the setup file first and then run it.

    @dinsorseedum: If GS14 fails to load a savegame for you, it might mean that this particular save has some unknown data the program is unable to read (could happen when installing custom databases).

    @Zaoza: That's weird. I tried adding players to a shortlist and then importing that in-game and it worked as intended. Are you sure you're importing the appropriate file?

    @Kelt: Normally you should be able to decline/skip any offer and get on with the GS14 installation. I've alerted the ad agency to look into this offer and disable it.

    @PS07: Hmm, that could be a bug. I've passed it to Eugene.

    @Michielrafc @rammie2011 @Ulster1982: 6,80 MB is the proper size. There was a problem with bytes calculation while using Google for it. Download and extraction both work fine on my end. Try re-downloading please.

    @thefatdudeuk: You unique ID changes when you format your hard drive or re-install Windows or change computer. This means you need a new key file in every case. Simply email Eugene, explain you want to use GS14 on another computer of yours, pass him the unique ID for that, and he will send you the file(s) you need without having to donate again.

    @jeebiev @RedGladiator @Robert Harg: Make sure to check your email's spam/junk area. If you're having problem, avoid sending private messages to Eugene - email him instead: genie AT fmscout DOT com

    @Giorgos: Not sure why you get that. Maybe you had FM14 open and GS14 idle for too long, and might just need to re-load the savegame on GS14.

    @Traquan: Sadly there's no solution to the sale value issue. SI have made the sale value algorithm too complex to crack, so I'm afraid we can abandon all hope as things stand. Regarding the feature request for role ratings, I agree. I've passed it to Eugene but I can't promise you if/when it will be implemented.

    @fmscoutfan: Do you still have the transfer budget problem?
  • Ulster1982's avatar
    The download link seems to be broken. (I have tried different browsers/locations/pc's but it always fails half way through the download). Is there anywhere else I can download it please? Thanks :)

    Hi Eugene, Hi Stam, Hi All

    I recently purchased your Genie Scout 14g, I received the file with the "G" version on Wednesday(14th) evening I have waited patiently to receive my key file so I can then use the "G" version.

    I have checked spam folders and the key file email is not there. Now I know the email says to wait 24 hours I passed 48 hours waiting now, so basically I was wondering if I am going to receive my key file anytime in the near future.

  • rammie2011's avatar
    im trying to download genie scout... but everytime it interrupts at 5% and only downloads that... then look at how much of its downloaded it says only 6.80mb... go to extract then it says file corrupt or damaged or some crap... can someone post a link for the correct full set up file please.
