Yes the problem isn't with the name WWSM, is with the file names!

Of course they have to release is as WWSM as an American looking for a new game might thinks its American Footbal game, confusing etc.

They should just leave all the Files alone though, Then all the utilities than can be added wont have such a problem :@

It is not working for me. I get a error message:
" Entry number:7282,
file position:16446704,
database Version: 1143,
Person data seems to be corrupt."

I disabled the compressed saved game, installed the latest version patch but it is not working. Seems like I have to start a new game with the new patch in order to make the scout working. However that is not what i wnat to do especially when you are in 2013 year in the game.
I think that this genie scout at this moment has lots of problems and needs serious improvements!

I hope there will be a new version soon!

Here's one that I cant see has been addressed. I started a new game with all the right stuff, genie scout works fine. I finished my first season, thought I'd have a sneaky peek to see if there's any decent new additions... and it wont load. gives this message....

Error Loading Entity Number: 70601
File Position: 35324473
Database Version: 1143
XML data seems to be corrupt.

I've got the same problem and I hope too, that the relase date of FULL VERSION Genie will come out soon.:blush
I play with huge databese, it means about 9500 Players, and Genie shows 1534 World Class players! How can it possible? Every players above 70% is World Class! Is it a bug? It was so dissaponting, that I played FM2007 instead FM2008.
Back in 2007 version, every player above 70% was world class, and also a player above 80% was godlike. Now in the new scout I have even seen potential of over 90% (Silva, Buffon and Daniel Alves), which is ridiculous (but not Genie's fault)... there shouldn't be such players if you consider that in 2007 version, you could find only 3-5 over 80%.

9500 players seem few to me if you are playing with huge database... because I play with large (loading all players from some countries though) and I get 154.623 players, and 2.703 of them are world class. This means 1,7% of all players are world class, not very unreasonable.

I play with Bundesliga 1, with no other players from other country. And the number ist truth!
What kind of Maschine do you have?
I have an Opteron 170, overclocked at 2,8GHz per core and watercooled =D
Also 2GB RAM on a good Asus board and a crappy VGA :)
It's 2 years old, but still seems strong 8)

My processor is an Athlon 64, 3500+. The memory could be more than 1 GB, but I kick the shit out of this maschine. Take long the processing?
I think I have shity copy of FM2008!
Not really, everything seems fast (saves, continue, etc), except the 1st time I set up the game (it takes 3-5 minutes to load all those players from my more than 10 countries). Not sure if there is such thing as shity copy of FM008 hehe

It should not be long. I would estimate that it will be available late next week/weekend.

We will update this site as soon as there is any news :yes
