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)

  • 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.

    Great stuff today!! I never got to know why all the previous GS rated me as a poor manager, like below 50%... But this one rated me as 75% on manager role. Not bad! Anyway, thank you stam for all the patience and thank you Eugene for all the hard work and dedication!

    @ruipedro: I personally don't know what's up with the PSV skin, but it doesn't bother me at all. Eugene should know for sure ;)
  • ruipedro89's avatar
    By the way, what's with the PSV skin? I was more expecting a Dinamo Kiev Logo...
  • ruipedro89's avatar
