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)

Redistribution Policy:
People who want to put Genie Scout 11 on their sites, you may link back to this very page but cannot host any files yourselves. Thank you!

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Compatible with:
Windows XP, Vista, 7 and FM 11.0, 11.1, 11.1.1, 11.2, 11.2.1, 11.3
* Does it work for Mac?
No, but Mac users check out Getting Genie Scout to work with Mac step by step guide by dane0. Thanks mate!

Final version is compatible with compressed save games!
However, previous version are not compatible. So if you are using an older version, make sure your save is uncompressed!

How? Un-tick "Compress Save Games" in FM preferences and hit Confirm! Save your game AGAIN, and then try to load it in Genie Scout 11.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

How to use:
  • Download the zipped archive and extract it anywhere.
  • You'll get an installer file named "genie11_setup_b129.exe". Double click to install.
  • Follow instructions and hit next until is finished.
  • Launch Genie. Load your savegame... you don't need to have FM open of course.
That's it! No frameworks required.

Some languages are completely translated and updated such as English, French, Turkish, Vietnamese, Italian.
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.

    It still takes some time to load the language data but nothing out of common. I was wondering, what if I "untick" the languages I don't need while installing GS? Would that solve the loading problem?

    Tonight's release has been postponed for tomorrow perhaps. Eugene is ill and health comes first. We're still in schedule for release by the end of the week.
    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    New version with fixes on most data loading errors, EU national and minimum fee release clause issues will be released tomorrow night. So stop posting bugs until then.
  • JR's avatar
    Is the "Minimum Fee" column on Genie 11 meant to be the "Minimum Release fee" referred to in players contracts normally used by Spanish clubs or is it relating to something else? If so why do all the players appear to have a minimum fee with a very low value?!?

    Strange, I followed Dan-Erik's install-instuctions for Mac OSX completely and when I launch Genie Scout, a box pops up with "FMGeniescout.exe is corrupted. Please download correct version from Otherwise FM Genie Scout will not be able to work properly."

    Very strange because I downloaded it via the link at the top of this page.
  • geek's avatar
    all i want to say is 'THANK YOU EUGENE!' (and stam, but of course) fm shall never be the same without genie scout.
  • ilhan_tugba's avatar

  • Stam's avatar
    I hope you're not really expecting an answer to that because there isn't any.
  • KilleRm0vE's avatar
    When will the final version be realeased?
  • dane0's avatar
    Oops, beat to it by a few minutes I see, well it's posted in the forum anyway :-)
  • dane0's avatar
    Wrote a quick guide for setting Genie Scout up under Mac with WineBottler, which is rather easy. Posted it in the Genie Scout forum, hope that's alright. Link: Mac Installation with WineBottler
