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.

    @Stam : I've looked in the database, with the editor, and the "1" stat's bug come from the fact that those stats are written "0" in the database, so a random stat. I think too it's the game's problem but i think you should be aware of that.

    All young players in all clubs have consistency, big matches and versatility like on the screen. Its a scout problem or fm?
    p.s. Sory, see this is a known problem
  • Red till im dead's avatar
    Yeah i've noticed same, but as you say i think it's a FM problem. Eg. Phil Foden in my game has 1 and 3 in consistency and big matches.

    Is genie scout compatible with MAC or do I need to wait for the MAC Assistant?
  • sim's avatar
    @Stam I have looked in the SI forums and others have the same issue so definitely FM not GS
  • Stam's avatar
    @sim: If the rest of the attributes are OK, I don't think it's a GS issue.
  • sim's avatar
    Have noticed there are a huge number of players with 1 consistency and big matches including known player. Is this an issue with GS or FM20
  • bezman's avatar
    I have the same problem as @trainz77 the shortlist from an open game won't load even after loading the game into gs20
  • Stam's avatar
    Those experiencing freezing/hanging issues, try to disable the in-game scout from GS options.

    @ReusGod: It should work with FM Touch too.
    @explodingsheep: Try to run as administrator (right click on the shortcut icon to find that option), see if that helps.

    I have the 'g' edition. It keeps 'hanging' after every press. Quite frustrating.
  • ReusGod's avatar
    I have downloaded the newest FM Scout 20 version but it doesn't work with latest 20.1.0 version of FM 20 Touch...

    Does it only work with the full FM 20 version?
  • explodingsheep's avatar
    I know that everyone is mad for FM20 at the moment but I fancied a "Throwback Thursday" and jumped into FM18. Has anyone else encountered an issue with using Genie Scout 18?

    I keep getting an error message which reads: Access Violation at address 00A505C4 in module "FMGenieScout.exe". Read of address 0000001C.

    This means nothing to me except GS doesn't work which is seriously harming my chances of being anything other than average!

    Loading players lists (importing Shortlist from open game) still doesn't work
  • bezman's avatar
