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!

    The 20.4 update for the public edition of Genie Scout 20 is now available. Released a bit earlier than initially planned as promised. Enjoy! :)
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: A lot of you have been asking for the long-awaited update to the public edition of GS20 to arrive sooner. I have talked to Eugene about that and he agreed to do it. So you can expect it by tomorrow.

    Is it possible to know the algorithm used by Genie to calculate the player's position rating?
    I mean, how does Genie calculate that Messi has (for example) 97% as Winger? I know there is a menu where I can see and edit the positions coefficients with values from 0 to 100, but how does Genie use those values to calculate the rating?
    I don't really need the algorithm, I'd just like to know how should I edit the values if I wanted to create some custom position ratings

    For all those asking when the public version of 20.4 will be released, may we ask you to read the comments first (public version was always going to come out for 20.3/20.4 at the same time)?

    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
