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!

    @Machtkern Because it's free, moron. If I had to pay for the program I would. If someone gave you free beer, would you tell them no and go the store and buy it?
  • Machtkern's avatar
    I think it's the time for the genie to be " for money " , There isn't any reason why it's still free till now , however 5 euros or dollars are NOTHING , Why don't some people refuse to pay those 5 -10 dollors ? It doesn't make any sense to me .

    Hi there,
    When will be released the public version of GS 15.3.0?
  • wizard of the sonic's avatar
    Cheers for the ad-were that came with this even though i unchecked the boxes. I'm having a nightmare removing it.

    @temus99 Open FM Genie Scout 15g - Help and Support - Donate - Look to Unique ID
  • Stam's avatar
    There's a new "g" version (a.k.a. ads-free edition) which was made available 1 day after the 15.3.0 patch was released. Everyone who donated to Eugene for GS15 got access to this version with immediate effect. Update for the public edition will arrive a bit later. Read more...

    @temus99: Open GS menu and go to 'Help and Support' > 'Donate'. See this picture.

    @piovra @gazz1209 @nikolas78 @america.virtual: Such problems are related to the key file. Most likely you either formatted or changed your computer, which means your unique id is now different and as a result the key file will no longer work.

    @Kaitek: There are 2 editions of Genie Scout 15: public and 'g'. The latter is for people who donate to Eugene and it doesn't include any offers. The installation file of the public edition is bundled with an offer that you can skip/decline. There is no virus or other crap in the installation file itself and surely there's nothing forcefully installed without your consent.

    @lee24utd: This site can be trusted and you should know that very well because you've been a member here for more than 4 years. All of our downloads are 100% free and safe for all since the very beginning. Genie Scout's public edition is the only file we have that comes bundled with an offer during installation. An offer you can skip/decline if you don't want it. We don't control the offers shown (the ad agency does that), but you can skip them. This is clearly stated above. These offers started with GS12 and their purpose is to help monetize the public edition for Eugene (the author). is a lot more than the exclusive home of Genie Scout.

    @koutsdimis: Eugene's email address is genie @ fmscout . com (remove spaces)

    @vasco82: We're aware of this and here's the virustotal scan report. Nod32 is the only antivirus that detects Somoto.E. As I've explained before, Somoto is the name of the ad agency we work with to show 1 offer at the beginning of GS installation which you can decline/skip if you don't want it.

    @Hesp: I'm not personally involved with donations and delivery of 'g' keys. Please email Eugene about this and he will help.

    @LeteciTanjir: No. You just need to email Eugene to explain your situation and pass him the Unique IDs for all your personal computers.

    @stevetalbot2000 @mruicqp @peterg1975 @mattjohnson809: I honestly don't understand why some users experience this problem. You can try this alternative download link which is hosted on a different server.

  • gazz1209's avatar
    Just realized why i'm having problems,i have a new PC and the key-file i got is no good as it is tied to my old PC.
  • piovra's avatar
    I have a problem with FMScout 15g v1.0 15.3.0 beta10. When I dowload a game, most of the players of are indicated as goalkeeper. Anyone has the same problem?? Bug or other? Thanks.
  • gazz1209's avatar
    For example i have a player with CA of 45 and PA of 57. When you tick the box to show the PA the number stats go up to 17's and 18's on most of the player attributes,the number values seem way too high for the players PA.
