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.

    Aside PayPal which other method of payment can I use to donate to Eugene? I'm in Ghana. I have a badge for buying FM from fmscout and I used my visa card
    Edit: I just realised you can use a visa card so I'll try that. Thanks

    If you didn't notice last night, Genie Scout 19g was updated for the 19.1.0 patch.

    @Golander: I'm afraid not. FastSpring only works with debit/credit cards and PayPal.

    Hello! Excuse me. There is one question. And you can not make a payment system through PAYSAFECARD? It is easier and more convenient for me and others. Thank . Vitali.

    @TB19Spurs: We're aware, but no. It's still impossible to crack because it's calculated and not fixed. And that calculation seems extremely complex.
  • TB19Spurs's avatar
    It says sales price is impossible to crack but in the in-game editor you can find asking price in hidden and it gives the value that teams will accept. Can this not be mined by Eugene?

    Hate when it happens in the middle of an open transfer window...

    Heads up: We know about the 19.1.0 patch. I've alerted Eugene and he'll prepare a compatible version asap. Hopefully it will be ready tonight.

    @salora: Game-exclusive data won't be exported, otherwise it would be a violation of the EULA. You can only export basic data and GS-exclusive data.
  • salora's avatar
    I have a question. Is it possible to have an export to CSV or TXT with all add columns? Because my exports contain only default layout.

    GS19g beta 3 now available.

    @bennynew: We're aware there's a new patch out. I've alerted Eugene and he'll make an effort to prepare update tonight, despite being extremely busy with work these days.

    @bezman: Sale value is not 100% accurate and it hasn't been for a number of years. The actual asking price is impossible to crack I'm afraid.

    @maplesnow: You can email Eugene directly at genie @ (remove spaces).
  • bennynew's avatar
    GS19g is not working? if possible to send an update for beta 3 please?
  • bezman's avatar
    The sale value in fm genie scout is not the value you can buy the player. Is there a way to get it in line to buy players??
  • maplesnow's avatar
    I made a donation for Genie Scout 19g last night, but it is not receive any mail yet. What's wrong with the payment maybe? how to confirm the process?
  • Stam's avatar
    GS19g beta 2 now available.

    @wsteelix: IGS doesn't work yet.
  • wsteelix's avatar
    Does the in-game scout works for anyone?
  • Kyrio's avatar
    19.0.2 instead of 19.0.1
  • desperadu's avatar
    The link for the genie scout 19g new version provided by the app is broken, any other link from which I could download it?
  • thegr8anand's avatar
    Thanks for the staff fix and update
  • merdumgiriz's avatar
    Will it be updated today?
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick Update #2: Eugene was unable to update GS19g tonight for the 19.0.2 patch, but you can expect a new version tomorrow.

    @pangalanopoulos: I'm afraid not.
  • pangalanopoulos's avatar
    is there going to be an edition for Mac?
  • livelife1984's avatar
    Great job as always guys but any news on updates to genie scout and editor to work with updated version of FM19?
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick Update: Eugene had a problem with his daily email quote for a few hours today, so there was delay in delivering keys. Should be sorted now.

    I'm very happy that Genie Scout came out so quickly! I noticed a couple of bugs. I can't search for players by nation, the result always contains every player in my game. I also noticed that every players is shown to have 0 int caps, and 0 int goals.
