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.


Genie Scout 20 is created by Eugene Tarabanovsky.
He has been developing this amazing scout utility for the past 14 years!

    I have the G edition, when I load the game:

    - Game date is 7-Jan-2019, but Genie Scout shows 1-July-2019
    - After continuing a few days in the game, I load the game in Genie Scout and still the date does not change. (Let's say the game date is 10-Jan-2019, but Genie Scout still shows 1-July-2019)
    - My in-game manager have 200 CA and 0 PA ! and all of his attributes are wrong.
    PS: I have the key file, and my unique ID has not been changed

    I downloaded the G edition yesterday. I was to receive a key file in a separate mail, which I have not received. It means all the roles and nationalities are wrong. It is not in my spam folder.

    Quick update:
    1. The 'g' edition has been updated for the 20.4 patch of FM Touch this morning.
    2. The update of the public edition is expected around 22 March.
    3. If you change or format your computer, wrong data will be shown because your key file can't work for different unique ID. Simply email Eugene, pass him your new ID and he'll provide you with a new key.
    Remember that the delay in updating the public edition only happens twice a year - for initial launch and after the first winter data patch. It's Eugene's way of rewarding his direct supporters.

    @ozziris: Sale value hasn't been accurate for years. Eugene is unable to fix that because the "asking price" in-game is calculated on the fly using a very complex algorithm which is impossible to crack.
    @GenieQuestion: I haven't tested a network save to be honest. Does it work for you in a non-network save?
  • FoooW's avatar
    when will the latest version be available?
  • ozziris's avatar

  • GenieQuestion's avatar

    I recently donated and got FM Genie Scout 20g. Every time i try to load my game it freezes. Is the load game feature available when you are playing a network game which is not hosted on your system? Thanks in advance for help.
  • primo4ever's avatar
    I have the same issue.

    ''this version of the game is not compatible''
  • Giangi's avatar
    @Stam i updated to the new version of the g version, however all the roles and nationalities are wrong. Example: Messi is a GK from Buthan. I tried to unistall and install it again but this issue remains.
  • SirAlexGuardiola's avatar

  • Desertik's avatar

    Oh yes thanks, it works with the last one :)
  • GloryGlory's avatar
    Me too. I have the latest Steam version and the latest FM Genie version. Was there another update?
  • 2mumee187's avatar
    Hey. For me is not working, ''this version of game is not compatible''. When will be fixed? thx
  • Stam's avatar
    @Lestat19: Right-click on GS20 shortcut icon and select "Run as administrator". See if that helps.

    @Desertik: Supposedly Eugene fixed that in the newest version (build 1023). You're still having this problem?
  • Lestat19's avatar
    @Stam - I received the activation key, I see it in C:\FM Genie Scout 20g,when i try to launch Genie Scout, it only loads half way, is there anything I can do for it to fully launch?
  • Lestat19's avatar
    @Stam - thank you, I just donated there now, do you think I will receive the G version tomorrow? It would be nice to use it on a Saturday, my longest day of the week on FM!! lol
  • Desertik's avatar
    Hi, I have a problem with these columns (training / youth facilities and youth academy) since several versions.
  • Stam's avatar
    @Lestat19: Here you can find the relevant options.

    @Enkidu46: I have answered about the in-game scout a few times. Eugene is unable to find an easy way of making it work consistently for everyone. You can always email him directly; he's responding to emails once a day.

    @cortex41: Check my previous comments please.
  • Lestat19's avatar
    how much do I need to donate to get the g edition?
  • Enkidu46's avatar
    Im honestly getting tired of this... I paid for something that is not properly working for me and every time I want a help from you Im getting ignored... I posted my issue for like 10 times and no answer at all...
