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.

    @robevz: It means you didn't place the key file where it should be.
  • robevz's avatar
    just donated for 22g but when loading the database it says key file missing & i have a gibraltan gh 190PA but when looking at attributes they are all 1 ? im guessing its a similar issue as the guys are having in the comment section
  • Stam's avatar
    Shortlists is currently a known issue. Eugene is trying to find a workaround. We also found a couple of other issues (club facilities for example) which will be fixed in the next version.

    @FearNoEvil: You are right, good catch. I've just notified Eugene about it.

    @bluemoon78: The Fastspring service is the go-to option for Eugene since PayPal doesn't really work in Ukraine. What payment method are you trying?

    @jacobmatthews1993: It's a problem with your key file. Looks like you haven't placed it in the GS22g folder, so the data shown are incorrect. Read this.
