Genie Scout 21g 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 21 is created by Eugene Tarabanovsky.
He has been developing this amazing scout utility for the past 15 years!

  • lijieneo's avatar
    Do you have the new rating files for FM21? I think there is a bit of difference from 2019.
  • ruifcp's avatar
    ok just realised GS is useless again this year, when loading saved game it crushes, same happened with last year GS, not even gonna try to report it because no one cares about our concerns...was good while it lasts untill 2018, now forget it...
  • Smolle10's avatar
    Does anybody know where is the number in percent for the players potential probalbility in percent on the players profile in the scout?
  • rattlehead85's avatar
    Is this being looked into? GS21 so far is broken. You wait a while for it to load then you get greeted with the error “out of memory” Clearly hasn’t been pre-tested before release because you cant even get into the programme. Was going to donate towards the effort thats put into doing this but seeing this i think i’ll hold back for now..

    Out of Memory Error upon loading save game.
    16GB RAM and I was able to run GS20 without any issues last year.

    Stam or Eugene any thoughts on this as it appears a few people are all getting the same error.
  • rattlehead85's avatar
    Keep getting out of memory error which cannot be cleared unless you shut down the system. I’m running a high end computer so no way is it “out of memory” The download is clearly bugged. Can’t use it.
  • ruuddude73's avatar
    out of memory error
  • Vvdw's avatar
    I have also problems with FM genie scout 21. It is standing in the Beta version, and I've download the newest version.
  • sessions7's avatar

  • nbotelho's avatar

    @87tom87: Nobody deleted anything. Your comment is still on the news article. And I have replied there.

    @Nitro810 @Mofli10: As requested above, please report your issues in the GS forum instead and provide as much info as possible. Eugene can look and investigate.
