News - FM Genie Scout for FM20 is confirmed
I'm delighted to announce that Eugene is working on Genie Scout 20, the new version for Football Manager 2020.

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 FM20 Beta. Then fix any bugs reported. And ultimately try to add a couple of new features for Eugene's direct supporters.

FM Genie Scout 20 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 early December. It usually arrives approximately 4-5 weeks after the "g" edition.

"g" edition

The "g" edition, which is the one for people who donate, is available since 31 October (beta 1). Current version (beta 6) is compatible with the 20.0.4 version (for FM20 and FM Touch).

You can now donate for GS20 "g" edition.
Do not report bugs in the comments below!

Genie Scout 20g 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 FM19 installed, you can try the "g" edition of Genie Scout 19 for free. It's not a trial, it's 100% unlocked forever.

How can I get Genie Scout 20 public edition asap?

The public edition of GS20 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.

    Eugene has released an updated version.

    Guys, if you disable the In-Game Scout option from Genie Scout options, it fixes freezing and stability issues. I mailed Eugene and this was the band-aid he gave me for now.
  • BM87's avatar
    Also having stability issues with GS G edition. Makes it unusable for me.

    soo I have this weird bug with my genie scout, where all the positions and divisions are incorrect. It lists almost all the players as GK's and the divisions are all wrong (EPL is now the Olympic games Playoffs). Anyone have any idea whats going on?

    FM 20.0.3 hotfix got published just now, Eugene was really fast to update Genie Scout 20G (FM Genie Scout 20g v1.0 20.0.3 beta 5) But after the update FM Genie Scout 20G is freezing sometimes, like you cant click anything for a while, it goes unresponsive then it comes back. Its kinda unusable at the moment. It was not like this just before the update. This will get fixed obviously, but please be quick, its not usable at all like this :(

    The thing is when the game is opened and load the game on FM Genie Scout 20G, it goes like this. But if i exit the game AFTER i load the game on FM Genie Scout 20G and use the FM Scout (loaded) without game opened, FM Scout is working just fine.

    @stam please let Eugene know this :(

    Quick update:
    The in-game scout isn't working yet up until build 1004, but Eugene has finally found a way to make it work. It will likely be added in the next update.

    @MValen: There's no 20.0.3 patch yet?
    @dexteroliveira: Not sure, should be an issue with the fastspring service.
    @boohoo: That seems impossible, but please email Eugene about it and he should be able to help.
    @Azeiteiro: There won't be a Mac version of Genie Scout in the near future as far as I know.
    @Blythspartan: That's odd. Please make sure to report it in the GS forum, so Eugene can see this.
    @bluemoon78: Please no bug reports in comments. Use the GS forum instead.

  • bluemoon78's avatar

  • CarlosEsDios's avatar
    I have purchased the 20g version. I never seem to be able to access the in-game scout. I hover over the 'i'on a player and can't see the CA/PA for that player without having to go into genie. I have windowed the game to see if it is this. The game is loaded as well as 20g. Can you help me please? Thank you.
