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.

    A brilliant app when it works. I'm getting the feeling the developer is having some problems with this year's release or he's lost his passion for his brilliant piece of software. It's buggy and isn't being updated at the same pace as it has in previous years .

    Hello a couple hours ago ı donated for GS22 but i haven't received a key yet.When will a get it.
  • TEday36's avatar
    I got it and it doesn't work too well, the nations are all mixed up (for example Argentina shows as Guam, Mexico as West Germany) , positions as well (most of them are shown as GK's) and even the potential rating (the one with %). The only things that show right are the clubs they're playing for and CA and PA. Is anyone else having this issue?

    Hello Guys!
    Im waiting 4 days for my KEY to Genie Scout.
    Is it normal? Somebody had like this?
  • smith11dcfc's avatar
    The main reason I donate for this is to save/load shortlists, I really hope this gets updated soon.

    The squad status showing as none is also a very annoying bug.

    Hi Stam

    Ive just updated to Win 11. Will there be an update for that? It works, but not optimal. It keeps processing something in the background.
    otherwise, thank you for a great product.

  • bboy's avatar
    How do I enter my unique ID if trying to pay via the site? I entered donate and went to the screen to pay. All I see is an option to put my name, email address and address along with payment details?

    Hi Yesterday I made a donation for the FM Genie Scout 22g and until today I have not received a key for it.
    What should I do to get it?
  • FrazT's avatar
    When you load your game and then, from the GS menu, select search, then filter by club/squad, I can access the squad details of all clubs except the one that I am managing. This is with the 22g version for FM 22 full release
