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.

    Just downloaded the new version and still persisting issues.

    New roles (IFB) older roles (IW) still not included. Interesting that Stam has deleted his comments on here about them being updated once the full releaae has come out and that there is no communication that this is being worked on with the release 1402 build.

    Set piece staff attributes not included so can't search for set piece coach

    Staff roles incorrect to what is in game

    The date in genie scout (bottom right of app) is incorrect it reads 12/07/2023 when date in game is 03/07/2023

    Will these be worked on/fixed? Some issues have run over multiple years.

    Thank you

    Will I receive the update via email?
  • RPGFan's avatar
    So only tool available will be g edition and will have to wait until late November for the public version ? I paid for last year edition, but unless optimization is done to help the tool more quickly load I think I will keep using public version, tool just takes forever to load. Hope Eugene understands this is constructive criticism, I like the tool just feel it takes too long to load.

    Will i get an email when the new version got out. I want to get it as soon as its come out
  • Tommy5's avatar
    also i the same problem, i donated but keep getting message telling me to accept terms and conditions, with no option to do it, please
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick status update: Eugene decided to take the rest of the day off work (his timezone is 5 hours behind UK) to return home and prepare the update for GS24g in an effort to release it tonight. He has been working on that for the past 90 mins.
    The new version will also support the Game Pass / MS Store edition of the game. And all the crucial bugs will get fixed. I also gave him a list of all your reports and requests, so he can improve GS further using your feedback.
    On a side note, he didn't have time to check on your emails today but will do that once the update is ready.

    Haven't seen my issue elsewhere - I'm getting a "Football Manager Not Found" error?

    I'm guessing this is related to all the other issues as well, but figured I'd flag it.

    (I'm Windows 11 playing on PC Gamepass if that helps).

    I have paid for Fm genie scout and still get the error message Football Manager 2024 24.1.0+194834
    That's really sad.
  • Pisto98's avatar
    I try to load the game with the load game button and I get... that the version of Football Manager is not compatible:
    Football Manager 2024 24.1.0+194834

    Hi, How it is working for the transition from "g" mode to the standard one ? Should we received a new Key or the update should be done through GS "g" ?
    Thanks xD

    Hi, whenever I try to check for new version I get "An error was encountered while trying to get version info. Cannot get data from web".
    Currently on version 1.0 24.0 beta 1, build 1401

    I know the full game just released, I'm not expecting an immediate update, just curious if there's been any new versions inbetween and is this error happening to anyone else (or is it expected)?
  • waxon-waxoff's avatar
    Will the 24 version have a dark mode? The grey/white hurts the eyes, especially playing at night.
  • sabas1908's avatar
    Hi, I 've reached 6th season in a save and fmscout stops working properly.. It loads every player as a GK with wrong stats, nationalities etc... It was working fine up to now.. Anyone else having the same problem?
  • Angryyphil's avatar
    Anyone else getting hit by the Out of Resources issue again this year?
    I was fine with 23 but 24 seems to be getting me this wonderful error on load up.
    I am aware I am running a 450k player data base but even FM with the kits, faces, etc is running at just shy of 4gb and I am finding GS topping out at just shy of that as well - Checking my bench marks at the point of the software crashing I still have about 36% of RAM to play with on the PC.

    32gb of RAM is more than capable of handling this amount of information - Even when I shut down the PC and restart to reset the RAM expenditure and don't open another single app other than FM and GS it still throws up the error.
    Not exactly wanting to run a smaller database considering I know this rig can handle the stress of it but apparently I am going to be forced to do this.

    Anyway - My main question is in however many years when my 100k database then suddenly hits 500k or something with newgens, staff, etc - Is GS going to once again throw this error up and once again be unsable for me?

    Overall I do love GS it's helped me out many a time but I think the old school framework of the software is holding it back nowadays.

    @charmander and @pepincl raise some excellent points. There are so many small, easily fixed issues in FM Scout that have been present for multiple editions and it's frustrating to see them coming up year after year. Genie Scout was a great product for years but it just feels like it's been slipping more and more, with minimal improvements from year to year. I'm not that bothered about the very basic look of it personally, but the fact that there are still player roles missing that have been in the game for years, the right-click menu is an absolute mess, "new" staff attributes are missing, and so on. If it were free I wouldn't even dream of complaining and I'd be grateful to have it all, but at the end of the day this is a paid product, and that comes with expectations.

    I've been paying for Genie Scout for many, many years and this is the first time that I'm hesitant. I really want to see the problems fixed so it can go back to being the indispensable FM scout program it used to be <3

    I usually start using FM together with Genie Scout, but from what I read in the comments, I understand that this initial GS version only has problems. I'm also one of those who has always supported Genie, but seeing that over the years there have never been any substantial changes or updates is a bit sad. Especially for paid software.

    I expected to be able to search for a Set Piece Coach, but that's missing, disappointing.
  • pepincl's avatar
    I've been supporting this project for a lot of time, but non of the "new features" are really worth it. GS was far better than the in-game editor, but no development, apart for the obvious yearly version, is making this tool only useful on beta release.

    Missing Roles:
    As @charmander pointed out, no updates on this regard for a long time. Yes, there are ways to overcome this, but they are a pain to set up.

    UI Improvements
    Simply put, it looks like an Windows XP program. No option to sort players on loaded shortlists, no quick reset filter button, no option for dark skins (as it feels like working on excel).

    Quick access taps
    If i want to know who is the best player for a particular position on the world, well, you have to manually set every parameter on the filter and there is no way to save that. We need a feature that filters out all best players for a role, or just to save the filtered atributes and stop filling does boxes again and again.

    Loading Database
    FMSE takes seconds, Ingame-Editor takes nothing. GS takes around 1 minutes every time. This needs to be addressed, has it makes it too difficult to keep track of players and staff transfers.

    Dear Eugene, please don't take this as a destructive opinion, after all you take time and effort to continue allowing as to have GS. But it has to be updated if it's behind a pay wall.

    Hi - seemed to load fine however when looking at individual players from Everton (currently 26/27 season) seemed to only display potential attributes / ratings despite this being unchecked. Also suggested that midfield player s best positions were as inverted fullbacks / fullbacks despite these not being identified positions in the game. Seems to be error
  • fabiof91's avatar
    for when a darker skin, dark background? I would really appreciate it, thank you, good job
  • charmander's avatar
    The below changes I have been requesting for the past 6+ years (since GS 18 onwards) for every single year. Lack of competition and lazy UI make for a very stale product every single year, that I have paid for.

    Since a new version is upcoming, I once again request Eugene to make the same changes that I ask every year, to ease life for us players, that extensively use GS.

    Staff Changes:
    Staff attributes such as Judging Staff Ability, Negotiating have still not been added for 4 editions of GS.

    Player Changes:
    Vision attribute is still wrongly appearing in alphabetical order where the earlier Creativity attribute would appear in Player Search, Player Profile and Player Rating Coefficients.

    Consistency, Dirtiness, Important Matches, Injury Proneness and Versatility still appear under Mental and Physical attributes, instead of Hidden Attributes in Player Search and Player Rating Coefficients.

    Hidden Attributes is still wrongly named as Mental Traits in Player Search and Player Rating Coefficients since Genie Scout 18.

    Default player positions in Player Search and Player Rating Coefficients have been the same since Genie Scout 14. Target Man, Fast Striker, etc are no longer being used in game.

    Club Changes:
    Still unable to search clubs by Junior Coaching, Youth Recruitment.
