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.

    Hello! I had GS 21 with the facepacks, now thte GS 22g promo edition give me a error, the face appears like a blur shadow, how can i fix it? Thanks!
  • Stam's avatar
    The shortlist issue has been finally fixed. Download GS22g that is now free to get the newer version.

    @Niyo: As explained on chat, GS22 is not compatible with the demo.

    @Hoofball: It's a false positive. You could just disable Norton to install GS and then re-enable it.

    @rivian: There have been no new FM22 patches in months, so try restarting GS22 or FM22.

    @ewazana: It's not available yet. I'm sure Eugene will be working on it when the FM23 beta gets released.

    @menidi: What do you mean? Not up to date how?
  • Niyo's avatar
    I got "Football Manager is not found." error. And it does not load my game. what could be the reason? I tried both public and promo version.
  • Hoofball's avatar
    Anybody else have Genie Scout blocked by Norton?
    I cant seem to figure out how to make Norton accept the install of Genie Scout...
  • rivian37's avatar
    I'm getting your game data not found error. I'm using g version. Everything was ok until today. Now i cant use genie scout.
  • ewazana's avatar

  • menidi's avatar
    hello all - is the free version of the scout not up to date?
  • maccaus's avatar
    Eugene, you should update all of the role ratings percentage every year. Which percentage type should i use? my.grf is still update? i think it is old
  • Jedermann's avatar
    I cannot add players to a shortist in game and then open in GS any longer.
    i can make a shortlist in GS20 and import to in-game.
    Anyone facing the same issues ?
  • CBP's avatar
    Hi, is the issue people are seeing messing with the overall rating and potential rating? if so, did you email the address on the popup with your unique key?
  • Biggboii's avatar
    Hi, will the 23 edition include the PS5? Thanks
  • CUMHUR AKTAŞ's avatar
    shortlist not opening in game.My saved list is not records as slf how do i do fmf
  • Number8eight8's avatar
    Not just the G version. The free version wont load a game. I think it might be out of date as I get a message saying I need to use the latest version which I thought I was using.
  • 87tom87's avatar
    what is wrong with the G version? it constantly crashes or does not respond for minutes at a time them works for seconds then doesnt respond again also why dont shortlists load in the game now the shortlists from the game dont load in genie scout why does it have so many problems? honestly dont know what im paying for
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: Eugene was unavailable for a few days, but got back on Monday and answered all emails. Everything should be back to normal since then.
  • Phyrex's avatar
    Yep I am waiting too for many days. Need a new key, Please Eugene !
  • Rols574's avatar
    What gives? There's a bunch of us who have been requesting new keys and can't get an answer. It's not like we didn't pay. Please fix this!!
  • kl34n3r's avatar
    What's wrong with my GS22g? Now the values on "Best Pot Rating" shows above 100%... Strikers don't appear, either...

    Besides that, it's very very slow between clicks... almost 10 seconds between clicks...

    I did format my PC and install windows 10 from formatted disk, so I guess it's not from that...

    Also, the non "g" version works fine... Strange...

    Never happened before and my GS22 version shows correctly...
  • nunk311's avatar
    any news from eugene??
    i sent an email for a new key 3 days ago but haven't received a response
  • danny1983's avatar
    paid, downloaded and set up 22g edition... very disappointed.... app is extremely glitchy compared to free version, often crashes, and mst annoyingly, the in game scout does not work... again...paid for this since 2017, an that was the only time the igs actually worked. followed all installation instructions, any ideas?
  • NobleSavage's avatar
    I have the same problem. I requested a new key as I have a new laptop but yet to receive it.
    I hope he is well.
  • wayne1980's avatar
    Hi I recently changed my computer so My G edition of Genie Scout doesn't work as the Key File is no longer valid. I emailed Eugene yesterday morning but haven't received a response. Is there any other way I can get a new Key File ?
  • lekougr's avatar
    NewGens (players and staff) are not show in search results, but they will show if you filter the team... you cannot search them by name either

    The app freezes and not responding way to often near at the end when loading the game.(loading stadiums)
    The "FM Genie Scout 2017 x64 Proxy" is still running in task manager after closing the app and needs to be killed manualy to run fmscout again without pc restart.

    Restarting Football Manager sometimes fixes it, otherwise you need to restart the PC.
    (This bug exists from day1 of fmscout22 for me)

    system memory size is not the issue with 16gb RAM, 16gb PAGEFILE and a dedicated graphics card..
    Loaded fm scout gets about 500-600mb ram with about 70k players.
  • AIEWZHEEE's avatar
    it's work for me on pc game pass
    copy folder sports interactive and rename to sports interactive.old
