Genie Scout 11 has finally arrived. The popular, one and only savegame compatible scout utility for Football Manager 2011 and Windows OS.

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.

GS is being translated to many more languages, see below...
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.

    Any idea how long it takes to get the Ad free version?

    I paid a donation fee over a week ago and have had nothing in my emails regarding the ad free version.

    Got an email off paypal saying that my donation was successful.

    Was under the impression it only took 2 days or so....

    1stly thank you so much for all your hard work in putting this together. Well done!

    Can you help me. I was a big fan of FM scout 07 & 08, but 09, and didn't work and I ended up having to install the attribute cheat instead. I've managed to upload 11, but it says i'm using the compressed file. So I un-checked the compressed game box, saved and then tried loading the data again but the same error message comes up? What am I doing wrong?

  • FunkyFlirt's avatar
    thanks stam, its just that this hasnt happened in previous versions of genie, maybe im training my players better this year...
  • Stam's avatar
    Best potential rating as well as potential attributes of a player are both indications (pretty good ones, but still indications) and not a 100% prediction of what a player will be. Of course training plays an important role, and also appearances with the first team... even tutoring.
  • FunkyFlirt's avatar
    iv noticed that the best potential rating is changing with my players. i dont know if its a problem with genie or if its anything to do with my training schedules? for example i have a regen left back which potential was 88.37 but after 3 years his potential now is 91.03...
  • pempem12's avatar

  • turrhall's avatar
    I have an issue. Trying to run Genie Scout on Vista, but every time I attempt to load it, dozens of error messages appearing saying "Library not registered". Is there anything I can do about this?
  • Stam's avatar
    @vindaloo: It just takes time to load, wait about 3-4 minutes and it should work.
  • vindaloo's avatar
    Hi, I have a strange problem. I have to computers one with Win Xp and one with Win7. But on both I can't run Genie Scout. It freezes while trying to load the language database. Can you help me with a solution to this problem? :)

  • prohandz's avatar
    if you want i can translate it to dutch...?
  • Stam's avatar
    It's not produced this season... so far at least. But that is another program from another author and has nothing to do with Genie Scout.
  • tcv7's avatar
    What about Mini-Scout..?
  • JR's avatar
    Could anyone advise what the codes refer to in FM Geneie. I have a player that has a code in the posistions tab preferred move section of 524288Hi?

    There is nothing listed in the actual game against the player so I cannot work out what these codes mean?


  • wedder888's avatar
    any ideas about not responding scout at loading language...anyone with the same problem???
  • Stam's avatar
    @Killermove: Yes, it's still a beta - who said it's the final version?
    @ACMilan22: Read the information on this page again - it's forbidden from the EULA to export information that belong to SI and SEGA, only basic stuff

    Also to all others who had been posting bugs in comments here, your comments have been deleted. Read this page just once, and you will see why.
