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.

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.

    oyuncu isimleri ile arka plan aynı renkte olduğu için oyun isimleri gözükmüyor bu sorunu nasıl çöze bilirim?

    Hello, does anyone know if Eugene is active on sending keys out for this at the moment?

    I sent an email over the weekend and just wondering howlong it usually takes?

  • Justice's avatar
    @yaso3597, you must email genie @ (no spaces) and explain your situation.
  • yaso3597's avatar
    Hi, I forgave the Genie Scout 18G, but I lost the key. Send me the key again.
  • desinterado's avatar
    Hello. In genie scout17 I was able to search for a club and the names of the players and the potential of them etc ... in this one can not do that?
  • joaquin87's avatar
    Thanks, as always!
  • Bartleby's avatar
    I downloaded the genie scout, but it does not work. Is there a problem?
  • migain's avatar
    Why downLoad fail everytime
  • leandrock's avatar
    where is "mezala" role rating?
  • DrunkOnSchadenfreude's avatar
    It seems like the most recent update introduced some problems with the ratings calculations of central midfielder roles. Completely developed players (CA / PA are the same or almost the same) have a huge gap between the calculated current role ability and potential role ability for Box to Box Midfielder and Roaming Playmaker. Otherwise the percentages seem to make sense (although the percentages for the Mezzala have also changed significantly since before this update, but as I'm not sure how they're calculated exactly, I can't tell if they were wrong before or if they're wrong now). But there are definitely errors in the calculations that weren't there before.

    @cDavi: Yes, that is the correct email address. Just be patient with it; Eugene usually responds to his GS emails every morning.
  • cDavi's avatar
    @Stam: Is genie @ the correct email address for me to send the unique ID to? That's the email through which I receive the version updates but I do not know if it is an automated system which cannot receive emails or not. Thanks
  • Stam's avatar
    @Ktoid: GS18 update for FM Touch 18.3.4 has just been made available.

    @cDavi: No, it's not broken at all. The problem is with your key file. You either changed computer or reinstalled/formatted Windows on your current computer. You need to email Eugene and pass him your new unique ID.
  • Ktoid's avatar
    it's still giving me an error saying that "your game data is not found." I'm on fm touch. It's not only the genie scout but other tools aswell. My game version is 18.3.4f1094154
  • cDavi's avatar

    The 18.3.4 FM Touch compatible update is badly broken. The player attributes are all incorrect. Can Eugene be alerted to this?
    It's extremely bad. From Ronaldo, Messi, Neymar to teenagers. All attributes in genie are not the same as those in the game.

    NOTE: On a laptop with the FM Touch game not updated to 18.3.4 the Genie 18.3.4 FM Touch update gives the correct attributes matching the game attributes. On the FM touch game updated to 18.3.4, however, the Genie 18.3.4 Touch update is completely broken as the attributes dramatically diverge from the game.
  • Stam's avatar
    Update for FM Touch 18.3.4 will arrive tomorrow for both editions.
  • cDavi's avatar
    Do you know when the FM Touch 18.3.4 compatibility fix may be released for those who paid for the donate G version? Thanks
  • Stam's avatar
    @tzimakosl: SI being annoying as always with FM Touch patches. It was a bloody policy update, why delay it for 2 days... bah. I'm convinced they do it on purpose just to annoy tool developers and their users.
  • tzimakosl's avatar
    Can you fix the touch version too, please?
  • datilla's avatar
    haters gonna hate? @sab77
  • Stam's avatar
    @LauLau: It's interesting that you spent time to login and post this comment instead of either reopening GS18 (to tell you there's a new version) or reading above (or below) there's a new version you can download. :/
  • sab77's avatar
    To all the haters!

    Just support the development of this awesome tool with a few bucks, and get the paid version. Have done this for many years, and will keep doing so.

    Well worth the small extra cost.

    Pay up, or stop bitchin over something that is done for free, and which you apparently can't live without...
  • AcunaMatata's avatar
    Thank you very much guys :D
  • LauLau's avatar
    So I opened Genie today but when I try to load my FM save in it, it says that my version of football manager is not supported?
  • ruifcp's avatar
    thankx to both of you...
