What's new in GS15

The biggest change in Genie Scout 15 is the update of roles and duties (91 available in total) and the update of the rating system according to the important attributes for each role which have changed for FM15.
In addition, the "g" edition now features a new search tab which allows you to search by specific role/duty, as well as the sortable columns for each of them in search results. See the screenshots below.

How to run GS15

  1. Extract the downloaded .zip file and run the setup .exe file.

  2. Depending on your country, you might get an offer screen to install a free-trial program or a browser toolbar during installation. You can choose to Accept/Next or Decline/Skip the offer.
    IMPORTANT: If you don't want the offer, you need to hit the Decline or the Skip button! Unticking possible checkboxes on the offer screen is only for disabling an offer's extra options.

  3. Follow instructions until installation is finished.

  4. Run Football Manager 2015 and load your savegame.

  5. Launch Genie Scout 15 and from main menu click "Load Game".

We have a detailed instructional guide to Genie Scout. Make sure to read it.

Donate to Eugene to get the "g" edition

As usual, Genie Scout 15 comes in two editions:
The public edition comes with 2 banner ads and an offer screen during installation.
The "g" edition has no ads nor offers during installation.

In order to get the "g" edition, you need to donate to Eugene. Refer to Genie Scout 15g FAQ if you have further questions.

Apart from no ads, the "g" edition has 5 extra features:
  • Search by role/duty: New tab in advanced search popup that allows searching by role and duty - plus sortable columns of each of them in search results
  • 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.

Eugene has automatized the process of distribution for the "g" edition, so you will have to wait just a few minutes before you receive a download link and a key file. But only if they have sent correct contact email, correct Unique ID alongside your donation.

Make sure you check your Spam folder too.
It might take up to 24 hours though. In case of problem with your donation, please contact Eugene using the email address you'll see in the message after donation.

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

During closed beta stage for supporters, Eugene fixed all bugs that came to surface. As a result, the public edition should be quite stable from its very first version.

Should you find a bug, please report it to the Genie Scout forum.
Read this before submitting any bugs!

Known issue: Sale value for players is not accurate and sadly we have no way of making it work as it used to be before GS13.

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.


Genie Scout 15 is created by Eugene Tarabanovsky.
He has been developing this amazing scout utility for the past 9 years!

    @koutsdimis: Check the news section, it's already available since FM16 Beta was released.
  • koutsdimis's avatar
    Hey just wondering when the 2016 G Edition will be available. Is there an approximate date? Thanks in advance.
  • zeus1903's avatar
    I didn't got the e-mail necessary for the key file. pls kindly and urgently inform
  • loehni's avatar
    Hi there, just bought the "g" edition, but where is the progress rate button? if i choose a player, i can see the progress rate, but that is also in normal edition. i want to sort my shortlist in order of progress rate. is it possible?
  • ReusGod's avatar
    Will be there any new features in the FM Scout 16 g edition? I think the best formations feature could be improved if we could create personalizad formations and with rating roles instead of general position rating.

    Or since we can change the weight of the attributes, if the role ratings settings were made public would be pretty cool.

    @Stam : Please bring back the feature to load shortlists files directly in the app without loading (the new .fmf files)
    Sometimes I use fm scout on laptop on which fm doesnt work. In earlier versions I used to use fm scout with just the export .slf files from game in the app.
    I think both options should be there. Direct in game loading and also the old method.
    Is there any way we can have the old way in 15g?
  • Stam's avatar
    @koutenes: Can you show a screenshot of this error? I don't know what's going on, but if a bug report is submitted properly, then Eugene can have a look.

    @alexsaba13: I can't recall your issue, but it doesn't make sense for the 'g' edition not to work while the public one does. Besides, we'd be receiving numerous complaints if such problem was evident in many 'g' edition owners. Are you sure that you have the latest 'g' version?

    @hang_kwok: If you have a regional edition (e.g. Asian), maybe GS15 doesn't support it.

    @pif126 @mitsakos293: It's related to your key file (not matching with your unique id). Please see my previous comment-reply.

    The g version is not working properly since last patch.Although the public one works fine!Eugene should really work to fix it..
    Actually it's a bit ironic,cause the ppl who paid have worse service!

    I have problems with FM Genie Scout 15g are normally opened the application I make loading of the game and the players are not correctly positions and statistics! please a help! Thanks! and I did format!
  • hang_kwok's avatar
    Sorry, i can't use the updated fm scout and error message popped out.
    "Football Manager is not found.
    Please, make sure you are using Football Manager 2015 15.0.1 and higher."
    However, my game is already the latest version, what should I do, thanks
  • pif126's avatar
    i have the same problem with @clifton14. I use genie scout 15g and almost all player looks they are goalkeeper. Is there any solution for that?
  • Stam's avatar
    @clifton14: When you format or change your computer, the unique ID changes and as a result the key file you had will no longer work. Email Eugene with your new unique ID and he will provide a new key file for you.
  • willinapit's avatar
    Honestly, I really want to donate to Eugene as my honour to his Genie Scout, but I do not have credit card
  • clifton14's avatar
    Hi. I have a problem. I donated before for FM Scout 15 but have since bought a new laptop but having issues getting genie scout to work. When I paste the key into the folder to activate the program, it uploads and only shows all players being goalkeepers and from the wrong countries?
  • endy's avatar
    thanks for updating so quick!
    now, I have donate to take fm15gs
  • Stam's avatar
    New public version compatible with the latest 15.3.2 patch is available. Use the big red "Download Now" button at the top to grab it. Enjoy!

    @NatPL: New GS versions (for both editions) are always getting released within 48 hours after a patch is made available. The only exceptions are the initial release and the January transfer window update; in these cases, public edition is delayed up to 3 weeks compared to the "g" edition.
  • rukiddingme's avatar

  • LFC4's avatar

  • btg123's avatar
    Normally never bother to post comments, but in this case I want to say thanks for updating so quickly after the new update. Love GS and the support you provide to the users, which is why this is one of the few things I donate $ to. Keep up the good work.
