Donate to Eugene to get the "g" edition

As usual, Genie Scout 20 comes in two editions:
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!

    the donation/registration was a pain in the ass. i gave up halfway through
  • Valandil71's avatar
    Well, I donated to get my g version, but I am still waiting for the key-file. They say one hour, but I am waiting for about 3 hours now...

    Just got the g version for the 20.3.0
    It takes forever to load.
    Is it the same for everybody or is it just me?
    I uninstalled and installed it again, I think that there is some improvement but again it needs a lot of time to load...

    Quick update: Genie Scout 20g has been updated for the 20.3.0 patch. The relevant update for the public edition will be delayed for roughly 4 weeks as it normally happens after the January data patch (and beta launch); this is Eugene's way of rewarding his direct supporters.

    Stam, Full database, first day save.
  • Stam's avatar
    @ruifcp: I don't see any message to answer to. Either way, technical issues should be reported in the GS forum or via email to Eugene. You'd need to provide more details though; Eugene wouldn't know what to suggest based on this comment.

    @cannot.speak: Is your save-game on full database and 3+ seasons in?

    @chidoshimiku: Please post in the GS forum or email Eugene.

    i don't know what the hell is going on with GS this year, can't load my career without crushing, asked Stam and he didn't even care to answer, changed computer. load the 1st time, but never more so sad....

    Love the Scout, just gutted about Sale value's not working - this was something i used it for a lot so is a hugeeee miss for me fingers crossed wlll work at some point in future
  • canot.speak's avatar
    Stam, i have the same problem than sierkas. It crashes on the 1st save of the game. The G version doesnt have this problem.
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: Public beta builds were never supported and this won't change now. Either opt out from public beta or wait until retail version receives the 20.2.4 patch.

    @bellidne: Send an email to Eugene alongside your new unique ID and he will provide you with a new key file.

    @sierkas: Does this happen on new or smaller saves? If your savegame file is too big (over 400MB or so) after a few seasons in-game due to very large database, it's not unlikely for GS to crash.

    Yes, we need Genie Scout update for public beta.
  • FrazT's avatar
    For those users of the G edition who are running the FM 20 beta edition- are they to understand that there will be no update of the G edition till the March update and that their Genie version will not work? Some official reply would be good, please
