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.

Update: Eugene informed me that the public version should be ready by December 10th.

"g" edition

The "g" edition, which is the one for people who donate, is available since 31 October (beta 1). Current version (beta 14) is compatible with the 20.2.0 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.

    As promised, public Genie Scout 20 has been released before December 10th. Despite a few hours of delay because of today's 20.2.1 patch. GS20g has also been updated twice today. Enjoy!

    Quick update: If all goes well, Genie Scout 20 public version will be out tomorrow night. If not, the day after.

    @shwinerz: Stats are working. Have you selected a season to see stats for?
    @Wolololo: Eugene has prepared a fix for the next version, but he's unsure if it's going to work because he can't replicate the issue.

    Stats still not working for me at all. Posted a thread below. Is it just mine or is it a bug on everyones?

    Once again receiving an access violation error when loading game. It was working for a couple of weeks, but now getting access violation error again. Pretty poor that I have tried numerous times to get in contact with the people that make genie scout and have not received a response. Anyone know how to fix this issue?

    Hi I do not get genie scout started due to the new patch. Can we update Genie?
  • Stam's avatar
    About the shortlist issue, Eugene is trying to replicate this. It would be helpful for him if you could explain some more details about the issue in the GS forum if possible.

    @ewieh: Probably tonight.

    `this seemed to work for me for now..

    What I did was unticking "Use caching to decrease page loading times" in preferences, after that I also reloaded the skin and it worked, I didn't restart Genie Scout or FM it was working right after this.''
  • Stef0010's avatar
    In-Game scout does not work for me, does anyone else have this problem or know how to solve it? I followed all the steps to set it up, but I do not see any (i) button near the name of the player. Please help
