FM Genie Scout has always been the world's favorite scout utility for Football Manager since its very first appearance to the scene.
We pride ourselves on exclusively releasing this legendary tool since 2009. We always try our best to deliver Genie Scout to the world every year because your support to this project is outstanding.
Genie Scout 16 introduced a key new feature (In-Game Scout) and a couple of significant improvements (Rating System, Progress Rate) in recent years.
For Genie Scout 17, Eugene won't have enough time to work on new features. However, the plan is to make GS17 work with the same features that GS16 had.
The 64-bit ProblemThere is one problem this year. FM 2017 introduced a 64-bit version for the first time. If your operating system is x64, then you will automatically get the 64-bit version of FM17. Why is that a problem? Well, Genie Scout has always been 32-bit and with 64-bit a lot of things change.
Update 22 Oct:
Eugene has found a way to work around this and prepare the first beta of GS17g.
