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.

"g" edition

The "g" edition, which is the one for people who donate, is available since 10 November (beta 1). Current version (beta 8) is compatible with the 21.1.3 version for FM21 and 21.1.2 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.

    Genie Scout 21g has been updated for FM Touch.
    About FastSpring: Sorry guys, this is the only option for Eugene at the moment.
    @Jatu: Install and open an older Genie Scout (such as GS20, GS19, etc). Go to menu (GS icon top left) > Help & Support > Donate. The unique ID will be there.
    @DrNotAsEvil: There shouldn't be. For any license related questions, feel free to message Eugene directly.
    @Lestat19: No, it's impossible to fix in a way that actually shows asking price in-game. It's a dynamic and very complex calculation.

    I'm using version 21.1.2 beta 6, IGS is still not working. Do I need in-game editor to enable it?
  • Pieter's avatar
    i still have the wrong nationalities. I entered the key. Will this be restored?
  •'s avatar
    I changed my computer, so I guess that's why I experience this. I have emailed eugene
  •'s avatar
    I experience that player positions are not matching the players. for example Virgil van Dijk position is set to DM, where in real life it would be defender. His individual attributes are also incorrect. only name, Current ability and potential ability (181, 183) seems to be correct. .

    Am I using the genie scout wrong?
  • minepo's avatar
    New update again. 21.1.2!
  • TiagoPrM's avatar
    Hi! Got the new version but can´t install it. When I execute the file the following error appears: Error box: ShellExecuteEx failed; code 255

    Using Windows
