The public edition comes with 2 banner ads.
The "g" edition has no ads and includes a few minor extra features.

In order to get the "g" edition, you need to donate to Eugene.

Genie Scout 18g Explained

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.

Donations are handled by Eugene. He will deliver the ad-free version to you after donation.

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.

    Please release as soon as possible. I'm looking forward to getting this version 10 hours you have any problem with updating?

    Good morning!! @Stam what time will update??
  • metu407's avatar
    Waiting for the update :)
  • Disturbed's avatar
    Good morning, I believe the update is coming out today?
  • Peter.3's avatar
    Eugene, what time are u gonna update on 7th.

    and How can I get Unique ID?

    I have problems with Unique ID can help?

    Quick update: Eugene plans to release the update for the public edition on Saturday, April 7th.

    Enjoy your Easter holiday! :)

    @geek: Yes. There are a few things that require updating and fixing. Eugene told me he'll attempt to address most of them for Saturday's update. That means "g" edition will also have an update on that day.

    @magicaz: Sounds like a problem with your key file. You either didn't place that file in the appropriate folder, or you changed/formatted your computer and your unique ID changed (therefore you need a new key that you can ask from Eugene).

    For those asking about the activation process of the "g" edition, the process is automated. After successful donation (which won't go through if you don't enter a unique ID), you will receive 2 emails from Eugene; 1 with download link(s) and 1 with the key file attached. The latter might end up in your email's spam area (due to unknown file type), so make sure you check there.

    Stam any news about the update ? :)
  • geek's avatar
    stam, great work by eugene and you as always.
    i've the g edition up and running since friday, but i do notice that the ratings for staff on genie scout and that in the game can be markedly different.
    for example, on genie a defence coach is rated 4.5 stars, but in-game he's only 3.5 stars. and i've had to resort to manually calculating the coaching attrributes myself in order to get the correct ratings (the number of stars for a coach).
    would be good if this may be looked into for future updates.

    hey Guys.
    I have the free versio of Genie.
    When i try to load the game it appears (Your versio of football manager is not supported: Football manager touch 2018 18.0f1069756)
    Can anyone please help me
  • r9jeff's avatar
    i bought the G version and download it 2h ago but still no activation key. How long does it usually take? :/
  • Justice's avatar
    @Nico5644, each key is unique to one device, as each device has its own Unique ID. You need to get the Unique ID of the device which you have the problem for, and email Eugene (Genie) with that Unique ID, explaining that you plan on using two devices.
  • Nico5644's avatar
    Hey guys, i have a big problem since 2 days. When i load my game on Genie Scout, the data base is corrupted, countrys, stats and position players are false.
    I have a key for the G edition. I use this key on an other PC and i havent any problems... Thanks in advance
  • r9jeff's avatar
    hey guys. I want to buy G edition. Can somebody explain me how do i actually do it. This dude desserves a donation, plus waiting for the public updates sucks. Thanks in advance
  • yasaksix's avatar
    Hi. I made a donation.but reset my computer. Please new key eugene. :(
  • Cy's avatar
    I have paid for the genie18g edition yet I've only been sent a link to the 18.3.2 version. How do I update?
  • Stam's avatar
    GS18g new version (beta 23), compatible with 18.3.3, out now!

    On a side note, I've asked Eugene for a number of minor improvements that will likely arrive in yet another update (regardless of further patch releases).
  • Cire's avatar
    Yeah, they just seem to keep Eugene overly active... While they give us constant hotfixes, it seems the wrong timestamp on the left top of the screen and sometimes missing teamnumbers are brought to us by recent 'hotfixes'.
  • ngST101's avatar
    zzzz how many more of these damned "hotfixes" will SI keep releasing just to interfere with Eugene's work. I know, I know, there's probably a reason for the fixes, I'm just venting because I just bought the g version which Eugene updated this morning and boom, SI counters it with yet another hotfix for the same issues or whatever. I'll shut up now.
