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.

    Quick update: Had a word with Eugene last night and again this morning. He was too busy at work, but seemed certain he'll be able to prepare the update tonight for both public and "g" editions. I was careful with my comment last night though and used the word "likely", just in case something like this would happen. Anyway, couple of hours ago he finished the update for "g", but I've had no word for anything else. I'm guessing this will be delayed until tomorrow as it's too late now. I'll post another status update for you once I have more info.

    Well I've made a pretty genourous donation for the past ~5 years, and I don't feel entitled. I am however waiting anxiously for a fix, since I like the tool so much, and don't really want to play without it. A lot of people feel that way, and some people just aren't good at handling their frustrations.
    It's weird that SI can't alert the various add-on makers that they're going to release an update beforehand sor we wouldn't have this debacle every time they do.
  • Milkman's avatar
    Stop acting so entitled, Stam and his team make this very useful feature for us and are not backed by some huge organization to fund everything. Therefore they cannot update their program as quickly as possible. The update will come when the team has time for it. I bet half of the people complaining haven't even donated a single penny for FM genie scout
  • datilla's avatar
    are you kidding with us? still no explanation? just fix this now !!!!!
  • biggitaylor's avatar
    Any word of the update yet @Stam

  • garay's avatar
    Hey guys, u can downgrade Fm version back to 18.3.3 using this guide, and scout will work again!
  • Dracevui's avatar
    ahh that's good news

    its actually been surreal for me playing FM18 again without the aid of Genie Scout

    turns out its much harder without it lmao
  • Stam's avatar
    No need to panic. Of course Genie Scout will be updated for 18.3.4. I've alerted Eugene and we'll likely have a new version tomorrow.

    @Toddy79: Send Eugene an email to explain your situation, he can help you.
  • realper's avatar
    OMG, I really hope he isn't on holiday! Or that he brought his laptop :)
    I really need my Genie Scout!
  • trig338's avatar

    @Joao: Send an email to Eugene to explain your situation and pass him your new unique ID. He will provide you with a new key file.
  • Joao_lamy's avatar
    I had to delete my computer and now I want to re activate my Genie Scout. I have my "key" in the same file of the setup file but when i start Genie it sends the message that it won't work properly because I don't have the key.. How should I solve this?
  • Stam's avatar
    As promised, new GS18 version is out now (for both public and g editions) to add support for the latest FM Touch patch. Enjoy!

    @maior: What skills are missing?
  • Stam's avatar
    There's a new patch out for FM Touch. Eugene told me he'll be able to update GS18 tomorrow.
