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.

DELIVERY OF THE 'G' EDITION:
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.

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

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!

EXPORTING DATA:
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.

    Patch 17.2.0 was released few hours ago (evening of December 14th). Genie Scout 17 is not updated yet to add support for the new patch. Normally it should be ready in the morning (Thursday, December 15th).

    Hi,

    I'm getting this error when I load my game into GS: "Your version of Football Manager is not supported: Football Manager 2017 17.2.0f914093" (yesterday was fine). I suppose that a new update was released for FM and a new update for GS is needed. Is this correct?

  • cma13's avatar

  • filip991's avatar
    when I save the Shortlist and load it in game, tells me "This file could not be imported"
  • tcd777's avatar
    Hi there how do i update my my FM Genie Scout G version ?
  • Stam's avatar
    The shortlist issue and the minimum release fee are known. I've repeated this is still beta and not final version.

    @Grenoli: FM Touch is for PC version. Genie is a Windows only program.

    @sdbrook: Norton is stupid, no offense. WS Reputation 1 means that Norton has never seen this app before, therefore it doesn't trust it.
  • Grenoli's avatar
    It says "Compatible with FM Touch". How? Is there a way to use it without buying the pc-version?

    As far as I can see you need to have the game installed on a pc to be able to use Genie Scout?
  • sdbrook's avatar
    I've downloaded Genie Scout 17, but Norton has quarantined the Genie Scout 17 Setup saying it's got threat name of WS Reputation.1.
    Has anyone else had this problem and how did they get round it.
    I haven't had a problem before with previous downloads of FM Genie Scout over previous years.
  • joaquin87's avatar
    i have problem when i want import shorlist in FM :/
    it's usually?
  • willinapit's avatar
    my genie scout is always not responding every time I want to load the file
  • tmolvik's avatar
    Thanks for the great tool! Have found some small things I can't get to work though..

    Minimum release clauses doesn't seem to be working properly. All are set to 0 or a couple of hundred pounds.

    Role search for complete wing backs are only set at attacking, not support.

    Hi ppl , shortlist in GS17 is in SLV file but the game only import in FMF! How can i upload shortlist from Genie to FM2017?
  • Stam's avatar
    GS17 is still in beta & there are known issues which haven't been fixed yet. Most of them should be addressed in the next version.

    @idk: Progress Rate is an exclusive feature of the 'g' edition.

    @thomasm: We talked about it on chat.
  • idk's avatar
    I cannot see Progress Rate stars on palyer screen.
