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!

    Ps we have 17.3 and now is 17.3.1
  • mcmanus1404's avatar
    I have FM17 version 17.3.1. FM scout does not work with it, nor the in game editor.

    Any news on either of these being updated?
  • Stam's avatar
    I'll repeat my answer from 4 days ago...

    Genie Scout 17g has been updated to work with the 17.3.0 patch. Eugene said that the update for the public edition will be delayed until the last weekend of March (25-26) in order to raise awareness towards the 'g' edition.

    @Grindan: Check for new version works fine. Also when you open GS17g and don't have the latest version, a popup window will tell you there's a new version.

    @LAR91: I'm not involved in these donations, only Eugene is. You can email him for any donation related questions.

    maybe @Zlaten09, we have to wait.
  • Zlaten09's avatar
    @Renato Mendes Neither for me, i sent a message already but nobody answered me. Probably GS2017 it's broken and they can't fix it :(
