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.

    About staff stats, I've alerted Eugene but I'm sure he must have received plenty of emails from you already.

    @zoppi_: Stats will be wrong if you don't have a key file. I can't do much myself. Eugene is handling the key files and their delivery.

    @Suzerain: You can find your ID from an older GS version, e.g. GS18.

    @Odytzi: You need to email Eugene and make a request for that. Make sure to include the unique ID of your 2nd PC.

    I wanted to donate to get Genie Scout for 2019 for the first time but I need to add a ID to activate it. Since I never used the software before I don't have one... How can I get around that so I get early access to the g version?
