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.

  • Diplexbullet19's avatar
    Awh you broke it! Your game data was not found.... Im using gamepass also. I made a new save and still not working.
  • LST's avatar
    Can't load the game either from the Xbox Game Pass
  • John 84's avatar
    same problem, cannot upload the lists to the game, so doesn't worth it.

    Hello Eugene, Not sure if you read this or not. I have been using Genie Scout for years and it's always been amazing.
    This year is still good but some issues are still here.
    One is the issue of the shortlist. Do you think this is something you could fix?
    The second is the price sale. I would like to see the value of Asking price there. Which is not. I have compared ingame. Also being able to search for that value would be nice.
    I love the features to check most promising, best player but would be good if we could check the player there or have this in a list to check them all. It's rather annoying that you have to close that window and look up for the name manually

    Thank you again for your hard work.

    i'm getting the same bug as the guys 6 days ago. Telling me my game is not found. My saves loaded, and ive tried running as administrator
  • santicaz19's avatar
    I think the latest version broke the probability of development stat. Everyone's is so low now, even those with high professionalism.
  • mattw123's avatar
    this is the buggiest scout I have seen. Sadly needing to reinstall it every time I open it. Dreadfully unstable
  • DexK's avatar
    Hey there, updated fm to 22.2 and genie scout too. But does not load the game. Im using fm22 in the xbox gamepass. Is this a known issue ? Ty
  • mattw123's avatar
    @cukier137, @sabboya all updated and compatible with the latest version. Sit back and enjoy everyone :)
  • mnizarm's avatar

    Any thing we need to do to import shortlists from FM Scout into the game. It is not detecting them like in the previous vesions of the game.
  • lekougr's avatar
    hi! i downloaded yesterday and it was working fine, but now it stucks at "loading stadiums"! any idea?
    first time encountering this in all these years i use fmscout :D
  • fukuburger's avatar
    Hey gang you can make shortlists in Genie Scout and then load them in the free version of FMRTE and resave it within FMRTE as the right file extension (FMF) in your shortlists folder. Hope this helps big thanks to Eugene for this generosity.
  • mattw123's avatar

    Hey mate, I have tested and there is an issue with uplodading shortlists to the game. Do you want me to drop Eugene a line?
  • mihaitza982's avatar
    "No players available for loading." when i search for players
  • Allenatore_Konstantinos's avatar
    Hi all, I can't figure out how to import GS shortlists, to my FM22 save. is it just me or is a common problem?
  • zhinfm's avatar
    same problem as jdbartleby, i have the latest FM2022 (22.1.1) the latest FM GS (1.0 22.1.1 beta4 build 1204) but it doesn't work when I try to load my game. I have the game open, I saved my game. Opened GS in admin mode, and without. Tried with removing the key (from donating) and with the key.
  • Stam's avatar
    @jdbartleby: Do you have FM22 open with your save loaded there? It's needed before you try loading data on Genie.

    @vashkevich: The shortlists situation is a known issue sadly. Eugene has been unable to figure out the encryption so far.

    @AdviZzzor: That doesn't make sense. What was different during your 10th attempt that worked? Make sure to extract the setup file out of the zip before running it.

    @Fatalit: There's no chance for that to happen I'm afraid.

    @cliffy @Lupo @mattw: Glad to know you're enjoying GS22! :)
