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.

More specifically:

  • In-Game Scout
  • Role Ratings

Is there a way to test this "g" edition?

    The transfer and loan status don't work for me either!

    Only a nationality is appearing in the players.

    In the search system you do not have the option to search the player for the continent.

    Another thing I miss is the search system for community players.

    Do you anticipate when this will be resolved?

    @apvmoreira: I can't reveal more details for now, but we'll probably have something to show for next week. A little patience please :)

    @Stam: That is written above, but could we have a more detailed information about what it does? Examples, maybe?

    If its good enough, it can make me change my idea and buy GS again in 18

    Hi Eugene.

    To prepare the future logopack TCM18, your GS tool helped me a lot.
    Indeed, being able to create a list of clubs by nations, it allowed me easily to take stock of missing clubs.
    But some small points could help me more, if it can be part of your development plans of course, just suggestions (that you must receive among so many others I guess).

    1 : IDs are separated from one space every thousand. (Example : 5 001 001)
    It would be easier to remove spaces (for me ^^) (Example : 5001001)

    2 : "Extinct" clubs can't be separated. In addition, when a club (extinct or not), has no division affected, it's the "Jupiler Pro League" which is automatically.

    3 : Finally, would it be possible to filter clubs by division? Moreover, sorting by division hierarchy would be a little more.

    Here are some improvements and bugfixes that would greatly facilitate the task, even if it is only available in version "g", I have already paid once, I can do it again to thank the work done.
    I know that too with my logopack, and it's always nice to feel supported (even financially)
