FM Genie Scout (or Genie Scout in short) is world's most popular scouting tool for Football Manager, created to extend the possibilities of finding, sorting and shortlisting players and staff, controlling their progress, making "first 11" and tactics choice easier and observing attributes invisible in FM.

Released: 7 January 2011 - v1.00 build 127
Updated: 5 April 2011 - v1.00 build 129 (final)

There are also some more available languages, but they need updating.

Localize and win: People who will translate Genie Scout into a new language or update/complete current available languages will get the ads-free version without a donation. Read more and declare your interest on this thread.

Donate to get the "ads-free" version
Genie Scout 11 comes in two versions. One with ads and one with no ads (we will refer to it as the "g" version). In order to get the "no ads" one you'll have to donate to Eugene first, using the donation form on Genie homepage.

Eugene has fully automatized the process of distribution for the "g" version, so people won't have to wait for days before they will get a link this year.

Apart from no ads, the "g" version features:
  • a new statistically based model that will show the probability of reaching theoretical maximum of players ability
  • support for custom graphic packs that make the overall look and feel much nicer (check the screenshots below)

    Please note that during the first run of "g" version it may take a few minutes to create a graphic packs cache. Next time it will be loaded much faster.
Also all new features that will be developed from now on will be available only in the ads-free version.

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.

Bug Reports:
This is a beta release, so it's natural that there might be some bugs we couldn't find while beta testing the scout ourselves.
If you're having trouble with your GS11 version, please find the corresponding version specific topic on our GS11 forum section and post there!
Read this before submitting any bugs!
Any comment including bug report posted on this page will be removed on sight!

NOTE: For those saying they can't export all the information of players in csv, please understand this is forbidden by the EULA from SI and SEGA. You should be able to export only basic information such as player name, club, age, etc... the rest information belong to SI and SEGA.
About displaying weight and height in players results and export in csv, it should become available in the next version.

Thanks to Eugene Tarabanovsky for yet another Genie Scout made! You are a true legend mate! :)

  • Replay72's avatar
    Lol dank, thats because they are your players and so they have no purchase value to YOU.
  • Stam's avatar
    Should provide data for every player in the database of your saved game.
  • paanchuayrach's avatar
    Does GS also provide the data for players in the youth team?? I type names of players in my youth team (like Ross Barkley in Everton), but there is no search result. Is there anyway I can find PA for the youths?
  • Stam's avatar
    @the toon:
    GS is originally tested against the regular databases and not custom ones.
    Now I don't think there will be another GS11 version, but feel free to follow the steps and submit a bug.
  • the toon's avatar
    i keep getting a error saying that person data currupt with my save game were i edited so i could play as a regional team but i just loaded default db and it works fine can someone help me why this is happening
  • Stam's avatar
    We'll be adding support topics on this soon. In a nutshell, best rating in % is how good a player is at his natural position, and best potential rating is how good he can become when he reaches his max potential.

    Not sure mate, since I don't have a Mac myself.
  • Grinsta's avatar
    Hi can anyone please tell me how does this work out the players best ratings and best potential ratings?
  • Bellick's avatar
    I've downloaded the mac version and went through the guide and it works fine. But can I update the Genie Scout with my mac to the newest version?
  • Stam's avatar
    Main download link is fixed and hosted on FileSonic since DuckLoad is closed and FileSonic fixed the issue we had with them. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
  • banngr's avatar
    Mmmmmmmmmmmm...yeah neither download link work for me either. They get to the end of the download and then say 'the source file cannot be read'. Can you upload to MegaUpload or something?
  • gooners-4's avatar
    But it works fine when i download the beta from filesonic. Can you fix the filesonic link for the final either? Thx again
  • gooners-4's avatar
    I dunno.. Supposed fileserve & uploadstation isn't workin good for me.. The download won't start even after I click the button for hundreds time. Any others facing same problem with me?
    Can't you upload in mediafire or megaupload or others? Thx
  • Stam's avatar
    @gooners-4: It works fine for me mate. What's wrong exactly?
  • gooners-4's avatar
    Sorry, but can u recheck the mirror? Coz I can't click the download button
    Thanks, I really appreciate ur hardwork
  • Stam's avatar
    It's your team mate, that's the point. You can sell them as much as you can. Start by transfer listing the players you want to get rid of after speaking with them first to avoid making them unhappy (use the poor performance excuse, or the surplus to requirements one). Continue and see if they became wanted by any teams, then based on what teams you see there either offer the player for a price higher than his current value or lower.
  • DankDoedel's avatar
    All the players on my team have a sale value of -1. very frustrating when I'm trying to sell them. does anyone else have this problem?
  • Stam's avatar
    Scroll down, there are additional download mirrors. I apologize for the inconvenience regarding FileSonic's service. I contacted them and they seem to experience temporary trouble. I've changed main download mirror to UploadStation until they resolve the issue. Thanks for reporting!
