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.

    The latest updated 22g (Build 1203) doesn't work for FM 22.1 full version. Has anyone got the same problem?
  • at0myq's avatar
    FM22 only can load in .fmf files and not .slf no more. Either FM will change that or Genie Scout needs to save the shortlists as .fmf files

    Got email confirming updated version and working now with release FM. Still finding though that the responsiveness is really slow and poor. Miles slower than last years. Hopefully improves as updates come out. But if anyone figures out a fix or knows why please let me know

    Its the second year in a row I am buying genie scout g and the in-game scout does not work. No popup is displayed when hovering over a player. What is causing this problem and how can we fix it? I noticed that the genie scout date on the bottom right corner is ahead of my save time. could that be the issue? Please help

    I guess it's just beta version, but finding this iteration of 22g to be very slow and not as responsive as 21. Seems to just hang a bit when clicking around ?
