Genie Scout 18g Explained

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.

    Current version does not support FM Touch? I get this after 18.3.3 update:

    [Window Title]
    FM Genie Scout 18g v1.0 18.3.3

    Your game data is not found.

    Please, make sure your game is loaded completely in Football Manager, and try again.

    If you're sure and the problem persists, save your game in Football Manager, and try again.

    Hi, I don't manage to use the 18.3.3 version of GS with my savegame. I continuously get the message "out of memory" and in the end I need to kill the process from the task manager. I tried with 2 pc (1 with 8GB and 1 with 16GB of RAM) but GS continue to crash. The old versions of GS (e.g. 18.2.2) were working with this savegame, so I've no clue how to solve this issue. Any help?
  • Stam's avatar
    @balichevski: My guess would be because the data can be read by GS only from the computer hosting the game; the others don't have the data locally and just streaming the game online.

    hi, can some1 tell me why i cant load genius scout in online game when im not server?
  • victoras15's avatar
    @stam : Yes , it was installed on FM18 Steam folder . Just reinstalled on other partition and it runs smoothly :) .
  • Stam's avatar
    @victoras15: No, that's not normal. Any chance you installed GS18 within the Program Files folder? And no, there's no bitcoin miner involved.
  • victoras15's avatar
    Is this normal guys ???
    Is this some kind of a bitcoin miner??

    I'm happy to announce that Genie Scout 18 public edition has just been updated to work with 18.3.3. Grab the latest version using the "Download Now" button above. Enjoy!

    I pushed Eugene to release it as soon as possible today, so there's a slight chance of minor issues. Please report any issues you might encounter as we'll be able to deliver a hot-fix tomorrow if needed.

    I guess (and wish) that you mean the 18.3.3 update...
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick status: Eugene is currently finishing up the update for "g" edition & will then sync the public edition with it. As promised, we'll have the 18.3 update at some point today.

  • Disturbed's avatar

  • Peter.3's avatar
    Eugene, what time are u gonna update on 7th.

    and How can I get Unique ID?
  • Rabiot's avatar
    I have problems with Unique ID can help?
  • Stam's avatar
    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.
