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.

    @Andriy: IGS should be working. Not sure if it's not consistent like last year. It's fine for me.

    @bluemoon78: I don't know what error you're getting. Have you tried contacting FastSpring support?

    @grafikermc: I don't know. Thanos hasn't said anything so far.

    @Razaron: Interesting suggestion. I'll pass it on to Eugene.

  • ChippyLowe's avatar
    any news on an update? The current version has wrong nationalities and stats for all players, thought my key was missing at first but it's definitely there.
  • Homer_Jay17's avatar
    Hi, what is the next step after you put the key file in folder? Thanks
  • Stam's avatar
    @jonnyfp23: Thanos hasn't confirmed that yet, but I suspect he'll do it when time allows.

    @madridista7: I'm afraid Eugene has given up on that a few years ago because asking price in-game became dynamic and 'locked' behind too many complex calculations.

    @Kayrail: From any older Genie Scout version. For example, GS20, GS19, etc. Install an older GS, open it, then from main menu (click on GS icon top left) go to Help & Support > Donate. You'll find your unique ID there.
  • jonnyfp23's avatar
    Do we know if there will be a Mac Assistant?
  • madridista7's avatar
    Hey Stam. Any chance Sale value will be calculated accurately with new FM?
  • Kayrail's avatar
    one question: where can i get the unique ID?
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: There will likely be a new version at some point tomorrow to address some issues.
  • koutsdimis's avatar
    Algerians for me as well. Also the issue with 0 players found when searching for transfer/loan listed. Just sharing my issues. People this is the 1st beta version. Everything is going to be fixed just be patient.
  • sercaneray's avatar
    Could you solve the ''nationality and clubs'' problem? All players listed as Algerians and there are no club names. So, filters don't work properly.
