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.

    Where are the in-game scout instructions? Can somebody make a YouTube tutorial please. I can't see this i icon that is supposed to appear. I have the g version.

    In the past, Steam and Epic versions of the FM were the same. This doesn't appear to be the case with FM24. As a result, GS24g doesn't currently work with Epic. Eugene will prepare an update to add compatibility for that soon. Probably this weekend.
    @ikzriccio: Can you please post this in the GS forum, alongside details about your system.

    @ylmzocakci: If positions etc appear wrong, it's most likely a problem with your key file (not being in the installation folder or your unique id changed and doesn't match the key). About second nationalities, I think it's indeed an issue.

    @KingKodiac: The public edition is going to be released towards the end of this month. Likely date: 26 November.

    @coreylamptey: If I remember correctly, you're trying to run this from a Mac via parallels and normally GS doesn't work on Mac.

    @frtslck: You shouldn't have to close FM24. Reopening GS24 should be enough. But I'll pass this on to Eugene to investigate.

    @RDF @Calliope_TH: I've provided Eugene with a detailed list of things that should be addressed. He will definitely add the missing roles (both for players and staff).

    @tonytheman: We'll need more details on that. Give some examples please.

    Hello, Beta 2 is not working and I always have "Your game data is not found" warning. Can you fix it please?
  • lkzriccio's avatar
    I dont if its just for me but the 24g app freezes every 20 seconds. tried to run as adm but it keeps freezing...
  • Killer_Tomato's avatar
    Fix the g version, pls, I can't make it work ("Your game data is not found").
  • ylmzocakci's avatar
    Very bad version, everything is wrong!! When searching for players, the countries appear incorrectly, and second citizenships do not appear.
  • KingKodiac's avatar
    Do we have a release date for the public version?
  • coreylamptey's avatar
    My Genie scout wont even load the game within the scout. keeps telling me there is "range check error on cities" then closes the genie scout
  • frtslck's avatar
    that's the most unstable genie scout version ever. after running the app, when you try to load 2nd time, it says game data not found. you have to close fm 24 and gs24 to able to use it again.

    I agree with many of the feedback. I'm sure it's a lot of hard work but the app does need updating. Older roles like IW haven't been in Genie Scout for years and now the new roles won't be there so it's becoming increasingly more difficult to trust Genie Scout and the ratings it gives.

    I've been donating each year and always hoped for these updates. Each year essentially feels like the same app but just made compatible for new FMs. Really like the tool but it needs to updated to what's happening in Football Manager

  • ekone's avatar
    All the time comes, "Your game data is not found" ist this normal or is this from the settings?
  • Killer_Tomato's avatar
    Sorry, but beta 2 isn't working for me (unable to load data, I've tried saving / loading / restarting, doesn't load data). It was fine with beta 1.
    BTW, I have epic, not steam.
  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    Thanks again Eugene and Stam. I cannot play this game without this great utility. But, as a donater, I also hope to see public version to be published asap because G version works really slow. It freezes too many times. Public version always work faster. I hope to see it back soon. Thanks again.

    ignore my last msg, figured it out. has to d/l free version of GS23 to get my ID.
  • joshpettigo's avatar
    Trying to buy and download the G version of GS24. Its asking for my unique ID, I dont have one as I dont have any previous version installed. I bought GS23 last year but I have a new PC and I never kept any details. Do I just have to wait for the free version?
