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.

    Be great if the download link to the g edition was easy to find. Iv found the donate part but pointless donating if I can't download the genie scout first as I can't find the unique ID. Proper head spinner trying to download this

    @maxy I always install the latest updated version of G version after any update, as they already send the download link in an e-mail. I never updated via "Check new version" menu. Maybe other guys also could solve the problem if they download the new version just like you and me did.
  • maxy's avatar
    @EvandroRoncatto I tried uninstalling and downloading it again and this time it worked correctly.

    For those who haven't escaped this error yet, I recommend doing this.

    Hi guys!
    I'm assuming you have the same error on Genie Scout at the moment.
    "Access violation to address ...".
    Mighty Eugene I hope you can fix this soon, please.

    Hi, I've recently installed Genie G version but there is an issue where every 10-12 seconds it becomes unresponsive for approximately 5 seconds (not responding). Anyone else having the same issue?
  • noodle18's avatar
    Since the last update, Genie G edition does not work. Is does not get futher then 'loading teams'
    Anyone a idea how to fix this?
  • Ans22040's avatar
    does this change the logos?
  • mtdofficial's avatar
    Hi, can someone share the link to the 'G' version?
  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    @maxy I already got a new e-mail after update for new G version, so working fine for me since the last update. I don't know what is the error for you.

    I also want to ask if anybody knows that: I am managing Real Madrid. How can I see Real Madrid C squad in Genie Scout? It only shows Real Madrid, Real Madrid U19 and Real Madrid Castilla as a seperated club, I think it also should be listed inside of Real Madrid, not seperated. Anyways. Real Madrid C squad simply unviewable in Genie Scout. Anybody knows how to see it? Thanks.

    Waiting for the G version to be fixed, as it has been 3 days with an error.

    Hi all, Genie Scout is a great tool which I have been using for a number of years. In terms of enhancements would it be possible to be able to export a staff shortlist in a similar way as you can for a player shortlist? It's not a problem if this isn't possible but it would be a welcome addition for me.

    Is the probability of development field different in this year's FM/Genie due to the new 'late bloomer' mechanics?

    I have updated it to the latest version. But the same problem still exists, such as all players being goalkeepers and their stats do not match those in the game.

    Hi, can someone share the link to the 'G' version?

    Where do I find the key file?

    Hi, ever since the update my genie scout hasn't been working. I've emailed [email protected] with a screenshot but haven't heard anything back yet. What's the best way to get assistance?
  • marcocima1993's avatar
    I just donated to redeem the gGS24 version but it doesn't work well for me, all the players are goalkeepers and the features are not those of fm they are wrong! I would like some clarification
  • tasos's avatar
    @Stam I put the key file in the correct folder. My name is written at the top of the app but GS doesn't work properly. I sent email to geni[email protected] asking for a new key and provided my unique ID.
  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    @Stam Thanks for the reply. I am surprised to hear that. Is it only me that G version works slower, freezing more comparing to public version? Of course, it would depend on PC's quality but public version simply works faster on same computer. G version working slower ,freezing more. If it's only me, than it's fine.
  • marfsime's avatar
    @Stam Thanks for the reply. I've already done what you said but unfortunately the problem persists. I wrote to Eugene hoping he can resolve the problem. Look at the picture [img][/img]

    When the public version is going to be released?
  • SandyTait's avatar
    @Stam - Great stuff, looking forward to it :D
  • Stam's avatar
    GS24g has been updated to add compatibility with the latest 24.1.1 patch. This version doesn't include any other changes. Eugene told me he's going to make an effort and work on all fixes (including the missing roles) later this week.
    P.S. It would be great if next time a new patch gets released, we wouldn't get so many unnecessary comments.

    @SandyTait: Yes, this will finally get added.

    @EvandroRoncatto: G vs public shouldn't make a difference in terms of performance. I can't personally replicate this issue. Perhaps you have a lot of custom graphics installed?

    @DivineGrace: GS24 public edition will arrive towards the end of this month. Likely date: 26 November

    @Lykia22 @Shaunessy1983: Any chance you have like tons of graphics installed? Like hundreds of thousands of faces etc? That might explain the delay.

    @huntelaar147 @tasos @marfsime: It's a key file problem. Place the key in the Genie Scout 24g folder and restart the app. If done correctly, "owner is absent" will be replaced by your name at the top of the window.
  • Mav1926's avatar
    4 hours untill update apparently
  • SandyTait's avatar
    @Stam - does "missing roles" include the Inverted Winger role for AM RL that's been missing since it was first introduced in FM20?
  • manjon's avatar
    Will the update come today?
