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.

    any timeline on the update for the new patch?
  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    I am waiting for G version update like others. But I also hopefully wait for public version to be published. G version simply too slow, freezing too many times comparing to public version. And can you please add set piece coach? It's still unavailable in Genie Scout.

    folks complaining since the annoying small update today. You got to wait. This wasn't a planned update, Eugene is a normal person. He isn't just sat around waiting for SI to update Football manager all day. Things take time. Yes its frustrating (regardless whether you pay for G version or free version) but we just have to be patient and grateful Eugene even provides this at all. It'll come. :)

    Where is FM 24 version? I only see FM 23 genie download on the FM24 Genie page.

    Also, the version FM23 version available I do not know how to get the unique id. The 23g is preventing me from getting the id

    Hi Purchased and downloaded. When loading it is stuck on the 'Building Graphic Cache'. How can I resolve please?
  • Mav1926's avatar
    How long usually takes for the updated download to be available?
  • eldran's avatar
    as mattias333 said earlier, new patch of the game relased today (24.1.1) so we just have to wait for FM24g next update

    New 24G does not work after the update for me. Says the game data is not found, the game is not loaded. I've been trying to save-load-restart-reboot for hours, nothing helps.

    Hello, I bought the new version of Fm Genie Scout 24. However, when I run the program it gives the following error. I want an urgent solution.

    @tasos you need to donate to eugene and put the key file in fm genie scout folder, you get emailed the key file after you get sent the link to download then it will work correctly
  • mattias333's avatar
    Appears there is a new Fm24 update so to save people saying genie scout doesn't work. Just wait for Eugene to update it. :)

    I have the same problem. what's up with that?
  • tasos's avatar
    First year GS doesn't work properly for me. Wrong nationalities for all players and staff and wrong positions for some players. Also, wrong current and future potential attributes for a lot of playes. Is it a known issue or is it something wrong with me?
  • Deegenom's avatar
    Can we expect that this FM Genie Scout will be okay for XBOX game pass PC version too? There is full standard version for xbox game pass users, same like steam and epic version, and I think that is even possible to have cross-play with them too.

    Genie scout doesn't work. Actual attributes for players are totally wrong..I don't understand
  • Krynz's avatar
    @Stam Any news on the missing roles update? Excited for that one! :D
  • hoeven's avatar
    I've downloaded the latest version, but it's not really working. It's lagging a lot and I have to wait almost every time I use it - Which sucks, of course ;) :D
  • Shaunessy1983's avatar
    Sorted my issue. I just had to wait for it to load. About 60 minutes.
  • ferper1's avatar
    Hi, I made a donation last Thursday to Eugene but I haven't received the download mail yet. Does anyone know if it is normal that it takes so long?
  • DivineGrace's avatar
    Where is FM 24 version? I only see FM 23 genie download on the FM24 Genie page.

    Hi Purchased and downloaded. When loading it is stuck on the 'Building Graphic Cache'. How can I resolve please? Had no previous issues with other versions of FM scout.

    I installedFM24 Genie Scout version 24.1_b1403 and still have the message as with the previous version: "Your game data is not found". FM24 is on Steam version 24.1. I checked the database and game save paths in the options and they are correct (I have the saves on OneDrive) Why doesn't GenieScout work?
  • Stam's avatar
    GS24g build 1403 is now available.
    - Compatible with 24.1 Epic
    - Secondary nationalities added
    - Other minor fixes
