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 20g 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 reasonably 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.

    GS20 has been updated for the 20.4.4 patch. Enjoy!
  • krompirko's avatar
    you are more than professional. It takes a special kind of stupid to keep releasing patches, especially during weekend, and fucking over the game time and time again. Thank you for your quick response every time. You deserve more people setting up the G version.

    Hi Stam,

    Any news on 20.4.4?
  • LPCrooks's avatar
    In what kind of company with half a brain do you apply changes on a Friday? How can you launch a patch 2 days after applying another? Seriously?... Stam, if you have the new version for this Saturday you have a donation from me because tools like yours are what make many let's keep playing FM. It is time that we start to value your work more...
  • theserial's avatar
