Genie Scout 19g 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. Another email containing the key file might take a while though. 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.

  • Creezog's avatar
    Because its only the 'g' version that was updated
  • STG's avatar
    Just downloaded GS but is still got the 19.2.3 update version
  • Stam's avatar
    GS19 "g" has been updated for the 19.3.4 patch. This particular version finally addresses the known issues of incorrect search by role, squad numbers and happiness, as well as updated columns for all player roles. Enjoy!
  • Stam's avatar
    GS "g" edition should be updated for 19.3.4 at some point tomorrow. Not sure yet if it will also include all the planned fixes/tweaks. Will know more tomorrow.
  • Breviity's avatar

  • gustavo2201's avatar
    Can you disable FM updates on Steam to use the latest Genie Scout??
  • barnes85's avatar
    It doesnt work anymore!! Used your winter update now says my version football manager is not supported/
    So when will there be a genie scout version available?
    That works with the latest FM update 19.3.3 or whatever it is
  • Lascasp95's avatar
    when will Public been release? any date :)
  • trig338's avatar
    Question: why is it that potential position rating of many CB.s and AMC are elsewhere? Just in my team now two of my CB:s will be future wingbacks. Victor Lindelöf (overview position Defender center 20, defender right 14) and Steve Cook (defender center 20, defender right 17). But in PP they will be way better on the right. I can point to numerous players where this is the case. It's more a rule than an exception.
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick Update: There will be a new version for the "g" edition by next week in order to address the remaining issues reported in the GS forum.
  • Stam's avatar
    @krtznrh: Email Eugene about this and remember to include your new unique ID. He can prepare a new key file for you.
  • krtznrh's avatar
    sory i reset my pc and i re install my gs19g but something worngpositions or nations i think i need key file because the old file is not working @stam
  • Stam's avatar
    If GS worked on Linux, it wasn't done intentionally. You just got lucky with it. Eugene makes this app only for Windows. If it will work again for you with the next version I'm in no position to say. It's a risk that you took knowing the compatibility specs beforehand. I've forwarded this to him regardless, just in case he's able to change something that will help your situation.
    As I'm not involved with the actual development of GS, responding to bug reports is not one of my active tasks. Eugene monitors that forum to keep track of any issues he needs to address, and from time to time he will connect to respond if he thinks it's necessary.
  • Stam's avatar
    @omega2674: You have spammed the comment section, you have violated the site's rules, and in the end you're on Linux which is NOT supported by Genie Scout.
    I personally respect everyone until they prove unworthy of that respect. Public holiday (where I live) was the reason I couldn't have alerted Eugene sooner about the patch. However, he already knew (wasn't a public holiday in Ukraine) and still couldn't work on it. He tries to answer all of his emails once a day. GS forum is the place Eugene monitors, but it's up to him to use his discretion in responding there.

    @mykal: When I had that issue, I'd simply hover on the (i) of another player and it would work again. Eugene told me IGS might not work in 100% of cases and it remains difficult for him to debug all cases because he can't seem to replicate the issue.

    @Arsenal1886: Yes, there will be another version with further fixes. I can't say when exactly Eugene will have it ready, but if I had to guess I'd say before public edition gets updated.

    @Creezog: Already explained that (first lines of this comment). I don't mind frustrating, I always try my best to be polite and answer questions people have.
  • airynod's avatar
    @Stam It's glad to know that 19.3 compatible version counted from Winter Update, not the most recent patch.

    @omega2674 I am not going to start a war with you, but just give Eugene sometime to fix it. As you said, if FMRTE is a better choice to you, why bugs of GS bother you anymore? Coding needs time, especially debugging.
    I know you maybe impatient for unable to use GS, because you actually knew GS is more easy to use for scouting/management. Me too.
    Programmer ain't magician, and they have private life too.
  • omega2674's avatar
    I start to think it does not work because it's Linux, but it worked so far and the last update does not work?
    To other users it's working, at least they said yes.
  • omega2674's avatar
    You are the ones who have to show respect for whoever paid the application that does not work.
    First the reason for the delay in updating was the fact that it is a holiday where you live, in a post a few hours later, it was already an internet problem.
    Abuse of luck whenever I want, do you think the IP that appears here whenever I log in is mine? Lol
    You should be ashamed of the number of bugs reported ( and do not respond to them!
    You can be sure that I will never contribute to Genie Scout again and I will post on several FM dedicated sites that FMRTE is a more viable option, it is updated almost instantly, few bugs and always fixed in the next update, they respect the users / buyers and the DEV responds in the bugs section and via PM.
    5€ and you can install in 5 PCs, Genie Scout only 2.

    Is there a knack ta getting the extra info show when hovering over the "i" icon? seems sporadic ta me, works sometimes but often not. g edition I'm talking about obviously
  • Arsenal1886's avatar
    Meanwhile, I think that for the rest of us the g edition is up to date and working :). However the issues that have been reported concerning the columns like happiness and potential rating aren't fixed. Will these be resolved in the near future with another update or should we also look to the end of March. Just asking as to keep the frustration to a minimum ;).
  • Creezog's avatar
    I understand that he's being a dick towards you and Eugene Stam but exactly what of what he said broke a rule that deserved a warning? Are there even rules of what you can/can't say in the chat or is that just up to personal opinion from you?

    I obviously understand that it gets frustrating when several people ask the same question over and over so dont get me wrong.
  • Stam's avatar
    @mirandini: The winter update (19.3.0) was released on March 1st. The countdown for updating the public edition started on that day. Refer to my previous comment for details. Until then, you could use FMSE that comes with basic scouting features (don't need a license for that part).

    @omega2674: I was hoping you'd go and pester someone else when you said 'bye bye', but you're still here. Anyhow, I provide the reasons he's explaining to me. You're entitled to an opinion, but I suggest you show some respect and don't push your luck. Consider that a warning.
