I'm posting this to clarify what's going on with Genie Scout 14 and the latest 14.3.0 patch, because there's some confusion among our users.
Is there a version of GS14 that works with 14.3?
Yes. The new "g" version (also known as ads-free version) was made available 1 day after the 14.3.0 patch was released. Everyone who donated to Eugene for GS14 got access to this version with immediate effect.
Where is the public version for 14.3?
It will arrive a bit later. There's no release date set, but hopefully it will become available sometime during March.
Why the delay with new public version?
For all previous FM14 patches, we were able to release new GS14 versions (both "g" and public) within a day or two. This time Eugene wanted to thank his direct supporters first.
How can I get the new "g" version?
You may donate to Eugene
at any time, he will see it and send you "g" version and the needed key-file. He's the only one involved in donations and the delivery of this special version.
What happens after I donate?
Once your donation is completed successfully, you will receive your 2 emails. The 1st email will arrive almost instantly and will include a download link for the "g" version. The 2nd email will arrive within a few hours (or sooner) and will include your personal key-file. The key file is necessary to activate the "g" version.
I donated but I haven't received an email yet!
Allow for a few hours after donation to receive the 2nd email with the key-file. If more than 1 day passes and you still haven't received anything, please check your spam/junk folder (and your promotions tab if you're using Gmail). There's a good chance you already have the email and you didn't notice.
If you're still having trouble, please email Eugene directly at: genie @ fmscout . com
I'm a GS14g owner already but I can't get this new version.
Every time a new "g" version becomes available, Eugene sends out an email to all GS14g owners that includes direct download link. But if for some reason you haven't received that email, you can use the "check for new version" option from within the app.
Where to find my Unique ID?
- Open GS14 (or GS13, or GS12, or even GS11)
- Click on the round button with the letters "GS" at the top left corner
- A menu will appear below the symbol. Move cursor over "Help and Support"
- A second menu will appear to the right of the previous menu.
- Click on "Donate" (icon is money in an envelope).
- A pop up box will appear in the middle of the screen.
- Your Unique ID is in a box at the bottom right of the pop up.
You will see something like this: "Unique ID: XX-XXXX-XXXX"
