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.

  • medintern's avatar
    Few more details -- logging into edge or chrome, clicking the download button just refreshes the screen. no download. Not logging in will let me download a version -- but it is the free version with ads -- so would like the non-ad version with all the whistles/bells that I paid for earlier. Thanks.

    Trying to redownload as I need an update, apparently. I am clicking on the download, but it is trying to download a a-fm-genie-scout-20.html file rather than a zip file. Was able to download correct file when using Edge (and not logged in), so the problem I was having was with Chrome and logged into the site.

    Can anyone explain why are the stats and position in GS so different from the game?
  • Faithnomore's avatar
    Thank you for your reply Justice.

    I fully understand you guys. I know it's hard to answer, but maybe there is an estimation? Or might not come at all?
  • Justice's avatar
    Game Pass version of FM is basically a brand new game. Eugene is trying to make the tool compatible but it may take time - as it isn’t as simple as updating it for a new version like for Steam version of FM. We can only ask that people understand that the game pass version is very difficult to make anything work with it.
  • iJMA's avatar
    can i download?
  • Faithnomore's avatar
