Donate to Eugene to get the "g" edition

As usual, Genie Scout 17 comes in two editions:
The public edition comes with 2 banner ads.
The "g" edition has no ads and includes a couple of minor extra features.

In order to get the "g" edition, you need to donate to Eugene. Refer to Genie Scout 17g FAQ if you have further questions.

Eugene has automatized the process of distribution for the "g" edition, so you will have to wait just a few minutes before you receive a download link and a key file. But only if they have sent correct contact email, correct Unique ID alongside your donation.

Make sure you check your Spam folder too.
It might take up to 24 hours though. In case of problem with your donation, please contact Eugene using the email address you'll see in the message after donation.

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

During closed beta stage for supporters, Eugene fixed most bugs that came to surface. As a result, the public edition should be quite stable from its very first version.

Should you find a bug, please report it to the Genie Scout forum.
Read this before submitting any bugs!

Known issue: Sale value for players is not accurate and sadly we have no way of making it work as it used to be before GS13.

Any comment including bug report posted on this page will be removed on sight!

Please understand it is forbidden by the EULA from SI and SEGA to export all the data from the results. You should be able to export only basic information such as player name, club, age, etc.


Genie Scout 17 is created by Eugene Tarabanovsky.
He has been developing this amazing scout utility for the past 11 years!

    Have anyone problems with GenieScout and see how the player looks like when maximized potensial? When I am trying this, the PA goes to 0, and all numbers goes about zero all over the place.

    @JalenTigh: Please read this.

    Am I alone here in that 90% of the players are showing up as being from Mauritania? The other 10% some other random African nation.

    Quick Update:
    New version should arrive later today. I've checked with Eugene and he promised as much. I don't have a specific time of day yet.

    @downloadkct: Simply hover another player and it should work again.

    @mmtonguc @Lagasor: Sale value has been broken for a few years now and sadly it's impossible to fix.

    @triforce: Yes, that's the correct email address. It may take up to 24 hours until Eugene responds.

    @smetje @saynada: Minimum is $4.

    @roggyist: The 'g' edition comes out earlier on 2 occasions; first beta release and winter transfers patch. Please refer to the GS17g FAQ page for more details.

    @casinoroyale3: New computer or upgraded/reinstalled Windows means unique ID is different, therefore you need a new key file. I believe we've already talked on chat about this.
