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.

    I hope there's an update for those who have supported the paid version this year and years previous as this year's support is underwhelming to say the least .

    Здравствуйте. Вы пишите про версию FMRTE, что она бесплатная. где её взять?
  • catsandbirds's avatar
    For anyone having issues importing shortlists (which is currently broken in FM Genie), you can download FMRTE (free version), import the FM Genie shortlist to FMRTE (which will recognize the file), and resave the shortlist. This will allow you to utilize it in the game properly.

    Any news on when we’re going to receive the email with the updated Genie Scout (G-editon)? I tried to open Genie now and it doesn’t work because the game got a new update :(

    I support Zahogo31. I'm also from Istanbul. 1 dolar 12,43 Turkish lira. That's why we can't donate.
  • etien4's avatar
    support Turkish gamers Eugene plz,my regard from Greece,i cant imagine how hard is all that with economy...

    Hi Eugene, I'm a long-time FM addict from Istanbul, Turkey. I've been using your Genie Scout for almost 7 years now. And it might sound weird but I get absolutely no joy playing FM without Genie Scout... I just gave my exam and installed FM today, and as a Med student I only have this weekend as a holiday. I was planning to play FM for hours this weekend but I just saw that its public version has not released yet. I've been donating some amount as much as I could for the last couple of years for the g edition but this year I cannot donate even five euros due to my country's recent crisis of hyperinflation and crazy exchange rates. I would like to know that If I could find a way to use this year's Genie Scout for the next couple of days.

    hi, doesn't work with the last update 23.11.2021 v , when we have a update ? thks
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: Eugene just informed me that the public version will be released on Tuesday, November 30th.
  • GfxJG's avatar
    I donated for the g version, but not all player roles are present in the search? CWB (Su) has been missing since at least FM21, which is really sad, I'd imagine player roles are one of the simplest things to implement, and the new Wide Center Backs are not in there either.

    I've been paying for this for multiple FM editions now, but it's becoming less and less worth it for each passing year, as quite a few features don't fully work either... I understand that Eugene is busy, but then he shouldn't release a paid product, that people expect to work 100%.
  • Kad38's avatar
    yes why we have no news about the public version please ? no one communicates on this ....
  • artvandelay80's avatar
    When will release the public GS version?
  • bluemoon78's avatar
    when will release the public GS version ??? because stam or eugene said; we should be able to release it towards late November. It usually arrives approximately 4-5 weeks after the "g" edition. And the time is finished...
  • Meteo76's avatar
    Hello. Why is there no shortlist in the game?
  • noodle18's avatar
    Hi, any idea when the upload issue is fixed?
    I use Genie for all selections and would be perfect if I can upload the selection to FM.

    Compatibility as from the above article: “ Current version (beta 4) is compatible with the 22.1.1 version (patch of Nov 16th) of FM22 on Steam, Epic and Microsoft Store.”

    How to find Unique ID: Download Genie Scout 21 for free on this website, open it, click the big GS button in the top left corner, click on ‘Help’, then click ‘Donate’ and your Unique ID appears there

    If nationalities, ratings, etc are jumbled: either you haven’t installed your key properly (use the above links to find instructions on how to install it) OR your PC has changed/formatted and your Unique ID has changed, in which case you’ll need to provide your new Unique ID to Eugene via email to receive a new key.

    TheAvenger2101, you only need to donate once for the FM22 version.
  • TheAvenger2101's avatar
    Do you only have to donate once or do you always have to do it again when a new version comes out?
  • Jordendb's avatar
    Where can i find the id? its first time i use scout genie
  • Boiadeiro's avatar
    GenieScout for Mac too!!!!
  • CedayBarney's avatar
    How can I get unique id for 22?(for donate) i found the answer :D
  • RaPoZaUm's avatar
    If only I could donate a bit less than 5 euros. Living on a country ruled by a garbage president makes our currency cost shit.
