News - FM Genie Scout for FM21 is confirmed
As always I'm delighted to announce that Eugene is working on Genie Scout 21, the new version for Football Manager 2021.

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 FM21 Beta. Then fix any bugs reported. And ultimately try to add a couple of new features for Eugene's direct supporters.

FM Genie Scout 21 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 mid 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 20th.

"g" edition

The "g" edition, which is the one for people who donate, is available since 10 November (beta 1). Current version (beta 9) is compatible with the 21.2.0 version for FM21 and 21.1.3 for FM21 Touch.

You can now donate for GS21 "g" edition.
Do not report bugs in the comments below!

Genie Scout 21g Explained

The "g" edition is ad-free and has certain features compared to the public edition.
More specifically:
  • Potential attributes search (new in 21g)
  • 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 FM20 installed, you can try the "g" edition of Genie Scout 20 for free. It's not a trial, it's 100% unlocked forever.

How can I get Genie Scout 21 public edition asap?

The public edition of GS21 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 around mid December; no specific time has been set though.

    A huge fan of Eugene and this tool and have donated for the G version for several years. I would love to see the ability to pull staff shortlist to help find the best and interested staff like you can with players

    The public version was released yesterday.
    @rasky: What are you talking about?
    @doanhtien: We've talked about your issue in private chat and sorted everything. It would be good to post a comment to clarify that.
    @jammysammy92: Place the key file in the installation folder.
    @87tom87: Try to run as admin. Right-click the GS21 shortcut icon and select "Run as administrator". See if that helps.

    I understand that if someone wants gs21 can pay to get it earlier but announcing a date for public release when the version is ready is bad

    Eugene is aware about last night's patch. I've alerted him shortly after it was released. We should have a new version soon.
    I'm happy to announce the much awaited release of Genie Scout 21 public version is happening this weekend (19-20 December). Not sure yet which day or what time, but Eugene has confirmed this is the weekend for it.
