News - FM Genie Scout 17 "g" edition now free!
The special "g" edition of Genie Scout is now available for free! You can grab it from the official Genie Scout 17 download page.

Normally this edition requires a license and is only given to Eugene's direct supporters who donate (at least $4) to keep the development of this brilliant tool alive.

For the first time, you can now experience all the extra features of Genie Scout's special edition for free. If you have never used this edition before, I highly recommend that you give it a spin.

FM Genie Scout 17g has no advertisements and includes a couple of extra features, such as search by role rating and probability of development.

It's also worth noting that new Genie Scout features in future FM will be exclusive to the "g" edition. This is Eugene's way of rewarding his most loyal supporters.

Extra features of Genie Scout 'g' edition

  1. In-Game Scout was introduced with Genie Scout 16g and brings GS usability to a whole new level.

  2. Probability of Development - A statistically based model that will show the probability of reaching theoretical maximum of players ability.

  3. Progress Rate - shows the predicted speed of player's development, depending on his ambition, determination, professionalism etc.

  4. Support for facepacks - if you have custom facepack added to your FM, it should show on player profiles on GS.

  5. Top players lists, as you can see on the screenshot here:

    Hey , i am heaving issue with tooltip in game, at begining of season genie tooltip was showing just fine in game, but now i cant make it to appear any more. What am i missing?

    @apvmoreira: People who get access to the FM18 Beta and are impatient to use Genie Scout... well, I'd say it easily compensates their investment as it means enjoying GS18 from the very beginning and not having to wait 1 month for the public edition.
    Those who are not in a hurry to get FM18 the moment it's released, they can enjoy GS17g for as long as they keep playing FM17.
    At any case, the point is to give this free opportunity to GS users who haven't tried the "g" edition before. :)

    @Stam: Ok, i agree, but this is only going to benefit players that will not change to 18, or are waiting for a pirate copy and use an updated database.
    I've bought it sometimes, and "g" does not compensate IMO. But if im waiting for 18 and i still play 17, one week is short.

    @apvmoreira: This was never done before. I advised Eugene to make it happen, so this way anyone can try this special edition and experience first hand what it can do. Core functionality is all free with the public edition, but going into the next season... perhaps the extra features will appeal to more people once they put them to use.
