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.

He has been developing this amazing scout utility for the past 14 years!

    Long time to loading the game! And my base is not so big, just 195k. Yesterday I fell asleep waiting it loads. 5 minutos is too much in a game!
  • RandydeB's avatar
    FM combined with graphic packages is quite heavy on the memory, combined with a huge database that gets even worse.
    GS needs to access the running data from the memory. If an antivirus is protecting it, it might cause issues, or you just have a shortage of ram memory and that will cause issues with GS.

    disable av
    run gs as admin
    check your memory usage and stuff like that

    loads of people have it working just fine
  • stodderkonge's avatar
    Loads fine here. As always thanks for this amazing tool Eugene
