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

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 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.

    Here's a step by step guide to make a working Mac OS X app.

    1) Download Winebottler and install from
    2) Download and unpack the Genie Scout installer
    3) Double click on the GS exe file and open it with Winebottler
    4) Choose "Convert to simple..."
    5) Click "Install" in the next window.
    6) Name the app "FM genie scout" or similar and choose to install it in your program folder
    7) The GS installer will open. Just follow the steps and install in the default directory.
    9) In the select Startfile choose the FMGenieScout.exe
    10) Open Genie scout and fully enjoy FM 2011 :).

    I had to make a full install to make it work.

    Don't think my family will be seeing me for a while - am about to spend next few days looking at the Genie!!
  • JR's avatar
    Just tried the advice from Zonnegod for Mac users who have parallel - works brilliantly!! Thanks Zonnegod. The tip about the languages is spot on. I had not noticed on opening Genie 11 that all the languages were ticked - hence reason why not loading. Once I had ticked the English only it was fine. Also, FM Genie 11 now prompts users to go to preferences & untick the compressed file heading as well !!

    Just opened the New version & it is truely amazing - Thanks Eugene !!

    Right i've spent a few hours trying to get it to work for my mac and I have a solution that works for me and I wrote a step by step guide for my brother - it isn't the best or the clearest but my brother isn't the best with computers and he managed to do it. Not sure if you want me to post it on here or not Stam?
  • mafialegends's avatar
    Its working fine thx Eugene and Stam.
  • Zonnegod's avatar
    I'm on a mac and I get it to work through Parallels Desktop (I'm sure you can borrow it from the internet somewhere ;) - though it takes quite a lot of room and you'll need a decent computer to run both)
    First time I tried to start it up it also got stuck at Languages, but then I just reinstalled, disabled all the languages except english and and it works fine :) (maybe you can try this with Crossover/wine?)
  • JR's avatar
    Totally agree with comments on support needed for MAC users. I spent 4 hours last night trying to get GS 11 to work with trial version of crossover & failed (have written to them for advice but no reply as of yet). Have spent a further 2 hours with wine this morning & also unsuccessful. I am not particularly PC literate & the instructions for both could be written in Swahili & would make more sense to me!!
    As Little blue appears to be still unwell as no posts on MAC site the Mac users appear to have very little support at present in comparison to Windows and are missing out on these fantastic programs.
    Any suggestions / support would be greatly appreciated but needs to be of a level for beginners on MAC who have changed over from Windows
  • Stam's avatar
    Would be great if you could write a simple step by step tutorial how to make GS11 work on a Mac with that app. Would you do that for me?
  • dan-erik's avatar
    Mac users: With winebottler for mac you can make genie run on OS X.
  • baggiebird76's avatar

  • tcv7's avatar
    Couldn't get anything better for Xmas...Eugene, WE <3 U!!!:D :D :D :D :D
  • josephhrtn's avatar
    Frustrating it doesn't work with mac using Darwine or Crossover like last years did. It initially loads but stops at loading languages grrr
  • Stam's avatar
    It seems you keep ignoring my polite requests to properly submit your bugs. So I'm deleting all bug reports sent as comments. POST THEM WHERE YOU SHOULD.
  • mafialegends's avatar
    I am very happy i will try it. :)
  • Stam's avatar
    I said it again, use one of the other download mirrors listed at the bottom of this page (before comments).

    @morrison & @yagami:
    Read my comment before yours...

    I've got a problem with filesonic. Everytime I click donwload (slow download), I get this message "Download Error: Free users may only download 1 file at a time."
    Im not downloading anything else....
    Anyone else having this problem or no how to get around it.
    Any help is much appreciated.
  • Stam's avatar
    Read this before submitting any bugs!
    Then post them at the proper forum thread.

    how did u get the 3 files? im also on 3 file rolling auto save but theres only one game file in my games folder..
  • hench's avatar
    the problem is that i get an error-message that says FM Genie Scout has to close down( I'm Norwegian so i have to translate by what i think it says in English)i can send you the message, but in general it's about the kernel32.dll file
  • Stam's avatar
    Nonetheless please do upload your problematic savegame and provide link in your forum post reporting the bug, if you haven't done already.

    It might take a little while for the first time. Let me know if it loads eventually.
  • clz2's avatar
