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.

    Just donated and downloaded Scout 19, but keep getting error messages. Also happens if I try downloading Scout 18. First error when starting scout is: 'Cannot create c: \Program Files\FM Genie Scout 19\graphics.gsc'
    and after that I get an Access Violation error every 10 sec.. any ideas how to resolve this please?

    It works perfectly if I don't use the real name fix DB. I downloaded the real name fix version from sortitoutsi.
    Nothing else is custom.

    Dear Stam,

    I'm trying to order stuff with you but I'm having a problem that I have every year. I live in Cambodia and your (and other) systems don't recognise my VISA card. I tried to buy FM19 through FMScout but couldn't and had to find another supplier; now I want to purchase Scout Genie and FM Scout Editor for FM2019. For the last 2 or 3 years you managed to unlock something to enable me to pay for your products, so I'm hoping you can do so again.

    @gandrasch: The real names fix is unrelated. The custom database on the other hand, I'm not sure about. Can you test a save without the custom database?

    @Martin: It's semi-automated. First email with download link should arrive at once. The second one with the key attached might take a while because it has to be generated on Eugene's laptop first. Make sure to check spam area just in case. If you don't have it by tomorrow morning, message me and I'll talk to Eugene.

    @BYATTO1: See if your antivirus is blocking the download before the end. Sometimes this happens because the .zip file contains an .exe inside and this kind of files are always a risk in the eyes of antivirus programs.

    @MValen: Please update to beta 5.

    @repetition: You need to place the key file to your installation folder before you launch Genie Scout. That key will arrive in a separate email as an attachment.

    I can't use the scout if I use a custom DB with the real name fix enabled. Tell me no game data is found despite having a save game on the disk.

    Hi I purchased Scout (FM19) this morning, but wasn't sent the key-file. I've sent a few emails but haven't had a reply yet. This was about seven hours ago. Any ideas what to do?
