We don't allow sharing Genie Scout 15 directly on other sites. Please point the download link to this very page. You cannot host any files yourself.

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.

OS: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8
FM15: 15.3.2, 15.3.1, 15.3.0, 15.2.0, 15.1.4

Does it work for Mac or Linux?
No. However, we exclusively release another scouting tool for Mac OS X users:
MacAssistant RT for FM15

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!

    upgraded to 15.3, updated please genie
  • Kaitek's avatar
    I would gladly donate hundreds if you guys removed all those viruses and trojans from the installation, there is a ton of crap that gets forcefully installed along with Genie without even asking you. Very very disappointing, been using Genie for years but I won't use this one unless you clean it up.

    @necjeff @Tsiou THX!


    1. Run FM and load your saved game.
    2. Run FM scout as administrator
    3. Load the saved game from FM scout.

    That worked for me!

  • LeteciTanjir's avatar
    Do I have to donate multiple times if I want to use the 'g' version on multiple computers?
  • stevedarake's avatar
    Still got issues with the DL - using the red 'download now' button top right, I've tried in chrome, IE & FF - still getting the 'failed - network error' that comes up half way through the download.
  • Stam's avatar
    @stevetalbot2000 @cfcx1985 Are you still having this issue? File gets downloaded within a couple of seconds for me without problems for either the public or the "g" edition.

    @nbl: Make sure you have FM15 open with the latest original update (15.2.1 currently) and load your saved game. Then open GS15 and click the load game button.

    @FM_Newbie97: There was a naming mistake with the version information file which has been fixed since then. Should be working fine now.

    @PaulBand: You can change currency in Genie Scout. Click the big circular icon to the top left side to access the main menu, then select Options. You will notice a drop down menu to change currency.
  • stevedarake's avatar
    Any idea when the download link will be fixed please?
  • GeneralCarnageX's avatar
    Go too options and it should be there on the first page.
  • cfcx1985's avatar
    Public edition on this page keeps saying network error half way through download. Is there another kink maybe?
  • nbl's avatar
  • FM_Newbie97's avatar
    When I try to look for an update in the help and support and click check now its says theirs an errow was encountered while trying to get version info. Cannot get data from web.
    Can anyone help
  • PaulBand's avatar
    Is there a way to change currency?
    My in-game currency is pounds but in genie scout it says F then the number. I have no idea which currency this is or how to change it.

    I know it's probably something simple, but any ideas?
