News - FM Genie Scout for FM24 is confirmed
As always I'm thrilled to announce that Eugene is working on Genie Scout 24, the new version for Football Manager 2024.

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 FM24 Beta. Then fix any bugs reported. And ultimately try to add a couple of new features for Eugene's direct supporters.

FM Genie Scout 24 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 Sunday, November 26th.

"g" edition

The "g" edition, which is the one for people who donate, is available since 19 October (beta 1).
Build 1404 was released on November 14th and is compatible with the 24.1.1 patch.

You can now donate for GS24 "g" edition.
Do not report bugs in the comments below!

Genie Scout 24g 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 FM23 installed, you can try the "g" edition of Genie Scout 23 for free. It's not a trial, it's 100% unlocked forever.

How can I get Genie Scout 24 public edition asap?

The public edition of GS24 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.

    Can anyone confirm if the missing roles - Wide Centre Backs, Inverted Winger in the AM RL positions, etc. - are in fact now in the g version? Thanks.

    Quick status update: Eugene confirmed that the public edition will be released sometime tomorrow (26 November). I don't have exact time for it, but I assume it's going to be evening hours.
    @Gullansam1: Key file problem. How to fix GS showing wrong positions etc

    @Shaigo: No. The usual skins are available. Steklo, Steklo Black (default), Steklo Vista and FM 2011. You can find them in GS Options.

    @shakro8: [email protected]

    @JT5553: I've asked Eugene to investigate, but I'm not aware of any newer patches during the week.

    @jarlfrancesco: The public edition will be released tomorrow. Every year the release (or update) of Genie Scout's public edition is delayed for roughly 1 month on 2 occasions; game launch and 1st winter patch.

    @SHAKRO: The initial email containing the download links should be automatic. The email containing the key file might take up to 1 day, depending on Eugene's availability. Normally he answers his emails once a day, but that may not always be possible. The public edition is traditionally delayed for roughly 1 month after game launch; should drop tomorrow.

    @Krynz: Eugene told me he added the missing player roles in the g edition, but needs more time for the set piece coach. So I'm not sure if there will be an update for g edition tomorrow.

    @somzi: You need to place the key file in the installation folder.

    I also wait for public version because G version works slower, freeze too many times.

    Why do all the players have the wrong position and nationality...?
  • Shaigo's avatar
    Will there be a full dark mode for the 24 version?
  • shakro8's avatar
    What's the email to get in contact with Eugene please?
  • JT5553's avatar

  • artvandelay80's avatar
    I hope the public edition release will come next weekend at the latest.

    Is FM Genie Scout fm24 works in 32bit or 16 bit?
  • jarlfrancesco's avatar
    So I will never at least receive the link to download? Just so I can see if it’s worth it or not ? First time I’m not using the free one, nice surprise
  • Jaginho's avatar
    Just get fmrte...not as good but manageable till the GS public edition is released
  • memepressing's avatar
    if you paid for 24g, the download link (3 dl links given, btw) is in the same email as your key. i know because i just bought it on 20-Nov. some of you are trying your luck, it seems.

    i had problems loading database on 24g. game
    2.exit both 24g and fm24
    3.load game on fm24
    4.load 24g

    FGS. Is this what it has come down to, people having to beg for their download when they have paid for it.

    Saying Eugene has kids doesn't cut it because I have kids, if he's providing a service that people are willing to pay for, like I have every year, then he should provide it. Its getting lazier every year, complete lack of correspondence and transparency, or just a reply to an email would be nice.

  • SHAKRO's avatar
    What do you do if you want to pay for GS 24 but you cant access your unique ID due to having a new laptop, as my previous laptop broke?

    I've contacted Eugene a couple of times but no response.
