News - FM Genie Scout for FM19 is confirmed
I'm delighted to announce that Eugene is working on Genie Scout 19, the new version for Football Manager 2019.

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.

Our aim is to update Genie Scout "g" edition to be usable for the FM19 Beta. Then fix any bugs reported. And ultimately try to add a couple of new features for Eugene's direct supporters.

FM Genie Scout 19 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 4-5 weeks after the "g" edition.
Update 18.11: The release day for Genie Scout 19 public edition is scheduled for November 25th!

"g" edition

The "g" edition, which is the one for people who donate, is available since 19 October (beta 1). Current version (beta 9) is compatible with the 19.1.5 version (for both FM19 and FMT19).

You can now donate for GS19 "g" edition.
Do not report bugs in the comments below!

Genie Scout 19g Explained

The "g" edition is ad-free and has certain features compared to the public edition.
More specifically:
  • GS Stats (new since 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 FM18 installed, you can try the "g" edition of Genie Scout 18 for free. It's not a trial, it's 100% unlocked forever.

How can I get Genie Scout 19 public edition asap?

The public edition of GS19 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.

    @hoeven: No. Only CA can change and PA is the ceiling for it.
    @jimmorrison: Public version of GS19 is out on November 25th.
    @ns1907: I've notified Eugene to look into it.

    Hey guys

    Just a quick question, I've been wondering about for some time: Can a players PA (Potential Ability) change? For example, if he plays really well, train well, or if he has a good tutor (and so on)

    i like genie scoutg but i dont have money can i get this program please?
  • CkM's avatar
    I have the same problem as theoffy. Some 30+ players don't show up on squad search. I can provide screenshots if necessary.
  • ns1907's avatar
    The minimum fee release clause is not showing all the players.
    Some players with a minimum fee release are there but some of them I know that have release fee but it doesnt show on Genie scout.

    What might be causing that and any idea which players program cant see?

    I can confirm that Genie Scout 19 public edition will be released on Sunday, November 25th. I won't have an exact time of day for you though.

    @mizie: You're right. I've notified Eugene to fix this.
    @theoffy: I haven't noticed that. I see 31+ aged players normally.
    @shelbyj14: I'm unable to reproduce that, but I've asked Eugene to investigate.

    I have also noticed the sqaud search not showing all players however I believe it is only players older than 31 that do not show. Have tried on various leagues and teams, appears to be a Genie issue but I may be wrong'

    Updated to beta 7 but does not appear to be able to load from FM touch 19.1.4.
    Does work for full fat

    I'm having an issue when I filter by squad not every player is showing up. It happens both when choosing all squads or a specific squad (1st team, U18s etc). I have updated to 19.1.4 and I also experienced this on 19.1.2

    Genie Scout 19g has been updated to work with the 19.1.4 patch.

    @Stam When will the software update
  • jomps's avatar
    @ns1907 that's actually easy to do, just send a scout to the specific player you want to know and he will give you a range that he believes will be enough to sign the player.
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: Next update for Genie Scout 19g (to make it work with 19.1.3) will likely arrive tomorrow morning.

    @pq: Eugene is working on that. Also on updating training ratings. I don't think he can squeeze these 2 in tomorrow's update though.
    @ns1907: I'm afraid it won't be fixed. I've explained why in some of my previous comments.

  • pq's avatar

  • scholes11's avatar
    Help I just take FM scout but I have the 19.1.0 version of FM touch of the coup its not working and I can not update the version I did as you said to update
  • ns1907's avatar
    When the sale value be fixed? It is showing it wrong and it is one of the most important feature

    Genie Scout 19g has been updated to work with the 19.1.2 patch.

    @lanxu @georgegregory99: Send an email to Eugene.
    genie @ (remove spaces)

    @binbinbin123: It's calculated in-game and too complex to crack how it works. For years.

    @yok_tt: I'm afraid not.

    @felix520: We talked about this on chat, I believe the issue is sorted?

    @Gencaslan: Eugene is still trying to make this work for more people, he will address the issue in the next version.

    @Chry: Never try to install Genie Scout inside Program Files folder. Use the default location or just keep it outside Program Files folders. If you're still having trouble despite not installing there, try to run as administrator.

    @gandrasch: I can only answer for the name fix that is on fmscout (pure lnc files). And I'm telling you, it has nothing to do with GS not working. If you're loading a custom database (editor data files), that may cause a problem.

    @phnompenhandy: Sorry, I can't do much about what the possible limitations of the FastSpring service. Also I don't remember ever doing anything in the past in that regard.

    Hi, Genie Scout 19g v1 beta 5 19.1.1 no longer works after FM19 was updated today. I get the following error. "Your version of Football Manager is not supported: Football Manager 2019 19.1.2rc1161578.
    I have tried "Check For New Version" in GS and am advised I have the latest version. Can you please urgently update GS.
