News - FM Genie Scout for FM22 is confirmed
As always I'm delighted to announce that Eugene is working on Genie Scout 22, the new version for Football Manager 2022.

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 FM22 Beta. Then fix any bugs reported. And ultimately try to add a couple of new features for Eugene's direct supporters.

FM Genie Scout 22 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 late November. It usually arrives approximately 4-5 weeks after the "g" edition.

Update: Eugene informed me that the public version should be ready on Tuesday, November 30th.

"g" edition

The "g" edition, which is the one for people who donate, is available since 21 October (beta 1). Current version (beta 4) is compatible with the 22.1.1 version (patch of Nov 16th) of FM22 on Steam, Epic and Microsoft Store.

You can now donate for GS22 "g" edition.
Do not report bugs in the comments below!

Genie Scout 22g Explained

The "g" edition is ad-free and has certain features compared to the public edition.
More specifically:
  • Potential attributes search (new since 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 FM21 installed, you can try the "g" edition of Genie Scout 21 for free. It's not a trial, it's 100% unlocked forever.

How can I get Genie Scout 22 public edition asap?

The public edition of GS22 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 late November; no specific time has been set though.

    Hey guys, I've been so busy last couple of days that I forgot to post a comment here for people who somehow missed the news (and the main menu links).
    GS22 public version was released on November 30th; around 22:00 UK time.
    Enjoy! :)

    ass, no genie scout, they deceived us, they didn't even give us any information
  • mattw123's avatar
    its 11.38pm in Kiev. He has 20 mins to get this uploaded or I am boycotting FMscout :P

    Jokes aside, he has missed this deadline before - I have known Eugene for years now - he has a family and holds down quite a serious job. What you will all find even more frustrating is - Football manager usually sticks out a patch update over this period of time, which means you may only get one or two days of genie scout before he needs to to a refresh!

    You're right, I am grateful for the free version too. I don't use it often but it does come in handy sometimes. I always appreciate that someone wants to create such programs for other players, devoting a lot of their time.

    As a Turkish, I feel like I need to apologise for younger friends. Public edition is free and the only thing we should do is being thankful for giving this to us for free every year, does not matter if it arrives a few days later than planned release date. About donating, 5 Euros may be too much for a Turkish student. For myself, I could afford that but never did because whenever G edition comes out, I always read members' problems in comment section. When we have public edition for free, we can only be thankful to you, which I do. But, if I donate something, even if the name is 'donating', if I am paying something, then I am becoming the customer and I have every right to criticise your job, your communication etc. And I just don't think you are good on this. Every year, people tell lots of problems after G edition comes out. That's my two cents. Please no offend. Thanks again for Genie Scout.

    Without this add-on you can really play, wait a while, nothing will change.

  • Onur Dogan's avatar
    Stam: "I asked Eugene earlier - he said he has a lot of tasks today (because he's preparing to move to another country) but GS22 should be ready for release tonight"
  • Vuco's avatar
    Eugene Tarabanovsky is from Ukraine. Time is 22:07 now in Ukraine. Two more hours before 1 december, so we wait one real football game until Scout.
  • ertarkan's avatar
    Of course there is nothing we can do. There is something they can do pretty easily. Being clear about the date (doesnt have to be a spesific time just clear and true) and not to make people refreshing this page like hundred times :) they set the expectatiton, so easy to solve
  • Xésus's avatar
    i am not pretend to play the smart guy here Ertarkan i dont have any problems with you or someone else.
    indeed every year the same problem occurs but in the end we just need to wait.
    even for the last minute.
    It is what it is.
    what should we do.
  • ertarkan's avatar
    Noone is crying Xesus and noone is expecting to have a free application, he doesnt have to do a 'public edition' of course. There is no need to swear too. In Turkey, game is 270 Turkish liras which is like 19 Euros, minimum donate is 5 :) but this is not an excuse and i didnt mention it as you can see. But people are waiting it cause this has been told, if they said 'we wont make public edition this year' or 'public edition will be available in December' there is no problem. But every year the same problem occurs. And every i see people getting angry for people waiting GS. FM community is very exclusive and have gentle people in my opinion and people like you makes me disappointed.

    The keyword here is "should" doesn't promise it will be. Im still going to refresh every hour lol.
  • Xésus's avatar
    I dont want to offend anyone but it really getting annoyed that only TURKS are complaining. Pls guys stop spamming if you dont like you can create a genie scout and release it by your selves.
    OR you can buy the g" version. considering the situation that you asking and crying like crazy everyday 5e are not that much when you already gave 50 for the game.
    but even if are enough,
    Its the free version and they can publish it whenever they want.
    By crying nothing gonna happen.
  • ertarkan's avatar
    First of all, thanks to the Eugene and Stam (and whoever worked on this program). I dont know if they publish this or not, but i have to tell some about the public edition policy you guys have. One or two years i've donated some years i did not. I really appreciate the effort but i cannot understand, what is taking so long? You guys are not the only one with some effort and deserve respect. But this is disrespectful to tell 'late november' and then last day of november and then the last minute of the last day of november. Jesus christ man, i hope you get rich soon.

  • ocsisajt78's avatar

    I hope I'm not forgotten coz I'm using "only" FM21...
