FM 2016 Tools - FM Genie Scout 16 - Exclusive

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.

What's new in GS16

The biggest change in Genie Scout 16 is the complete revamp of the rating system according to recent FM tendencies.
Based on deep player development history analysis using big data techniques and statistics (collected data from over 15 years of game history on over 100k players and over 54k matches from top-12 leagues), the following changes have been made:
  • re-assessed the influence of one-foot vs both-feet playing ability on overall rating (a player who can use both feet performs better than a player who can only use one foot with the same attributes)
  • skills dependency on current ability has been thoroughly investigated, which makes potential rating assessment much more accurate
  • peak (max possible) potential ability has been investigated (what CA can be reached depending on the current age and position)
  • position skill influence on player performance (inability to play on a specific position doesn't affect performance significantly now if player has high skills required for the position)
  • role ratings improved based on FM16 suggestions
  • positional ratings adjusted based on FM16 suggestions and on the statistical analysis of collected matches history

In addition, the "g" edition now features a brand new amazing feature: In-Game Scout. IGS brings GS usability to a whole new level. Clicking the (i) icon next to player's name in-game normally shows up a pop-up box with his attributes and some quick details. With IGS enabled, this pop-up box is enhanced with many added insights, including potential skills and rating. You no longer need to switch to the GS window to check on hidden attributes or potential ability.

OS: Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10
FM16: 16.3.2, 16.3.1, 16.3.0, 16.2.0, 16.1.1

No. However, we exclusively release another scouting tool for Mac OS X users:
MacAssistant RT for FM16

Donate to Eugene to get the "g" edition

As usual, Genie Scout 16 comes in two editions:
The public edition comes with 2 banner ads.
The "g" edition has no ads and includes a couple of minor extra features.

In order to get the "g" edition, you need to donate to Eugene. Refer to Genie Scout 16g FAQ if you have further questions.

Apart from no ads, the "g" edition has 6 extra features:
  • In-Game Scout: The highlight in 16g that brings GS usability to a whole new level
  • 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.

DELIVERY OF THE 'G' EDITION:
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.

IMPORTANT:
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!

EXPORTING DATA:
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.

    I am also in a difficult situation, because I would use fm genie scout but my bank card is not operating and is discarded each time and I can not make a donation :(
  • sdbrook's avatar
    Is there any idea when the public version on Genie Scout will updated for 16.3.
    By the way how safe is it donating to Eugene, because I don't like using bank details online.
    Also how better is the "g" version to the public one and how much do people donate to him.

    Eugene replied.

    I tried donating again and it went through, although I didn't do anything different.

    Thanks.

    @BM87: I believe he checks his emails once or twice a day, so normally you should have a reply by tomorrow morning.

    @stam How long does it usually take Eugene to reply? I emailed him this morning.
  • Stam's avatar
    @semnickdejeito @Johannes Filskov: You can email Eugene at [email protected]

    @loacker: Sounds like a problem with your key file. You probably upgraded Windows or changed computer and your unique id has changed. Email Eugene to explain what happened, pass him your new id and he will provide you with a new key file.

    @lpalic1: Just open Genie Scout 16g and load your game in it. That should enable IGS functionality in-game.
  • semnickdejeito's avatar
    There's no other way to make a donation? by Skrill, for exemple ?
  • Johannes Filskov's avatar
    My dont work either!

    How to get in touch with Eugene?
  • loacker's avatar

    How to fix?
    Thank you

    how to turn on in.game scout in fm?
  • Stam's avatar
    @muzstafa: If you already have GS16g, you don't need to donate again; all updates are free. The whole point of the delay between 'g' and public edition for the winter transfers patch, is to encourage donations from people who haven't donated to Eugene this season.

    @kuba_fcb: I've answered that in previous comments. About 3 weeks.
  • muzstafa's avatar
    Not going to lie-i've been a paid user of Genie Scout for some years now and do think it's a bit much that you have to pay again for the update. Surely once you donate for the GS version you should have it for that entire edition, updates included?
  • kuba_fcb's avatar
    When the public version is out?
  • Stam's avatar
    To those having problems donating or updating:
    Please send an email to Eugene for advice. I'm not involved with these donations or with the delivery of the 'g' edition. I've passed your issues to him last night, but he will answer to all of your support related emails individually.
  • Chanty's avatar
    It works perfect, donate and 10 seconds later an email, and now for the first time the G edition.
  • BM87's avatar
    It still won't let me donate.

    I have tried through GS standard. I have tried through the link above.

    I have tried different amounts.

    I have tried different cards.

    I have tried through FastSpring and also through PayPal.

    HELP!
  • MartyMcfly's avatar
