The popular, one and only savegame compatible scout utility returns for Football Manager 2010. As promised, we have exclusively released the most anticipated utility for FM 2010.

Updated: 31 Mar 2010 v1.11 build 116
Released: 10 Nov 2009 RC 1 build 110

Compatible with: Windows XP, Vista, 7 and FM 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 10.3
Note: Since RC 2 there is support for compressed save games!

Donate to get the "no ads" version
Since v1.0 Genie Scout comes in two versions. One with ads and one with no ads. In order to get the "no ads" one you'll have to donate to Eugene first, using the donation form on Genie homepage here.
Important: FM Scout (the site) is not involved in the donations towards Eugene, neither has any responsibility delivering the ad-free version to you after donation. This is a process handled solely by Eugene himself, so it could take some time until your donation is processed.

How to run:
* Download the zipped archive and extract it anywhere.
* You'll get a folder named "FM Genie Scout 10". Open it.
* Double click on FMGenieScout.exe
* Load your savegame... you don't need to have FM open of course.
That's it! No frameworks required.

If you're using RC1, your savegame needs to be uncompressed to load in Genie.
So, while you are in FM, make sure you un-tick "Compress Save Games" in Preferences page and hit Confirm. After that, save your game again. Now you are ready to load it up on FM Genie Scout 10!

Does it work for Mac?
Mac users check out this article by macooz: Fm Genie Scout for Mac with CrossOver.

Thanks to wizard for letting us know, you can get make your Genie Scout work without the crashing/freezing issues if you update Flash Player, or just do what wizard says.
* Take a look at the Issues with v1.11 topic for more details.

If errors still appear, please take the following actions:
* Upload your save game with the problem somewhere (e.g. FileFront)
* Make a post on this forum section, explaining your problem and giving a link to your save game

If you don't provide your problematic savegame, it's unlikely that Eugene will able to fix the problem.

Languages included:
- Chinese Simple - English - French - Italian - Portuguese - Russian - Spanish - Swedish - Ukrainian - Turkish (RC 2)

Redistribution Policy: People who want to put this on their sites, be polite and give link back to the official FM Genie Scout page here on

    Hi I always wanted to know the algorithm. How is calculated the progress rate. If you can tell me the formula that takes into consideration age, ambition, profesionalism and determination would be great. I noticed thata if a player plays more matches grows faster and also if he plays better, If he takes bigger rating is more important rhan if he plays more matches but plays medium let;s say... I did the same searson 3 times to see this:). But I want to know de algorithm pls. If anyone knows...

    @eplghost: There obviously should be a data error if you try to load a FM11 save game using the GS10 version.

    See this forum topic Issues with v1.11, hope it helps. If it doesn't, I'm sorry there's no other known workaround and we are all waiting for Genie Scout 11.

    when still try to load genie scout for open ı got that mıstake,
    can u answer
  • Stam's avatar
    It is very likely, but we can't promise anything yet :)
  • Loops1919's avatar
    Hey!! Does anyone know if FM 11 will have Genie Scout made for it??
  • Stam's avatar
    You load your FM savegame and it makes no difference if you have FM open or not. It's not a real-time editor, it's not an editor at all; otherwise it would appear on the editors sub-category, not on the scout utilities.

    Genie has been world's most popular tool for FM for years, does that count as a recommendation? If by safest it means not interfering with your game, then that should be the safest one. It's also the only one for PC that doesn't require an extra requirement, such as .NET Framework.
  • Daneo123's avatar
    which one you recomend as being the safest and overall

    either this one or the FM Assistant10??

  • Daneo123's avatar
    it doesent run with the game then

    so it cancels out anything going wrong right?
  • Stam's avatar
    Yes mate, just try it :)
    It doesn't require any installation, just follow the simple how to run steps.
  • Daneo123's avatar
    hey guys what is this?
