News - FM Genie Scout for FM18 is confirmed
I'm delighted to announce that Eugene is working on Genie Scout 18, the new version for Football Manager 2018.

FM Genie Scout has always been the world's favorite scout utility for Football Manager since its very first version.

We pride ourselves on exclusively releasing this legendary tool since 2009. As always we try our best to deliver Genie Scout to the world every year because your support to this project is outstanding.

Besides the "g" only features that already exist, Eugene is preparing a major new feature for Genie Scout 18g, providing in-depth player development knowledge based on the history of thousands of games.

That's pretty exciting, right? :)

FM Genie Scout 18 Release Date

Public edition

While we can't give you a firm date for the release of the public version, we should be able to release it towards the end of November. It usually arrives approximately 4 weeks after the "g" edition.

Update (Nov 27th): Eugene posted a comment on this very page, explaining that GS18 public edition will arrive either on Friday night (Dec 1st) or on Saturday (Dec 2nd).
Update (Dec 1st): Eugene informed me he'll be able to prepare public GS18 tomorrow (Dec 2nd). He doesn't want to set any specific hour though.
Update (Dec 2nd): Genie Scout 18 is now available for free download.

"g" edition

The "g" edition, which is the one for people who donate, is available since 27 October (beta 1). Current version (beta 10) is compatible with the 18.1.3 version (for both FM18 and FMT18).

You can now donate for GS18 "g" edition.

Genie Scout 18g Explained

The "g" edition is ad-free and has certain features compared to the public edition.
More specifically:
  • GS Stats (new in 18g)
  • In-Game Scout
  • Role Ratings
  • Probability of Development
  • Progress Rate
  • Top Players list
  • Facepack/Kit support

Is there a way to test this "g" edition?
Yes! If you still have FM17 installed, you can try the "g" edition of Genie Scout 17 for free. It's not a trial, it's 100% unlocked forever.

How can I get Genie Scout 18 public edition asap?

The public edition of GS18 will be directly added to the moment it is ready.

But we can notify you via email when this happens, so you won't miss time at all.
So make sure to sign up for our newsletter today.

It's expected for release sometime at the end of November; no specific time has been set though.

    I guess some people are just born without patience. I may not be a user of this tool, but it pains me to see Eugene, a very committed and diligent provider to this community, receive such unwarranted and, quite frankly, ignorant comments regarding the length of time it is taking for this tool to be released to the public. Maybe, if the impatient take the time to pull their heads out of their collective brown-holes, they might realise that Eugene is working hard to deliver an (evidently) usable and desirable tool, and his efforts should be appreciated, not harassed.

    nope moujik tranquista is a role only for AMC and not the winger if i m not mistaking
  • moujik36's avatar
    Hi, will all positions/roles be catered for in next update? i've a formation with a Trequartista placed on the left wing and either I'm being dumb or i cant filter for that role in that position.

    if this wont be addressed, what do people recommend i do? currently searching left footed AMC trequartista to get a decent fit.

    But after one week i still haven't received the email with the game key.
    Please check if there is any problem.

    @Ronni3: The alert box that comes up with yes/no is currently bugged (and will be fixed in the next update). Click yes to dismiss it, then go to options and untick the relevant checkbox that disables data collection.

    @bluemoon78: It's up to Eugene to decide, but I'm hoping it has to be sometime next week, before the weekend. End of November.
  • Ronni3's avatar
    genie scout wants to collect data in the background,but the no thanks option does not work,infact the program wont close unless i click "yes".Whats going on?
