Genie Scout 22g 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.

He has been developing this amazing scout utility for the past 16 years!

    Hi, I bought a new laptop and have a new unique ID. I sent an email to Eugene about this and he hasn't responded for a few days now.
    Unique ID is 0C-AED0-F7CF

    @silverlux: I notified Eugene about that. Apparently there was an issue he wasn't aware of that prevented the delivery of keys over the past 2 days. It should be sorted today. Apologies for the inconvenience.
  • silverlux's avatar
    The delivery system for G version does not seem to work anymore. I donated 16 hours ago and an E-Mail with the key still has not arrived. Is anyone still managing this process?

    Anyone find a fix for shortlists not loading to the game.

    Hi, anyone else having trouble with the 22G version?

    It says that it can't find my current game of FM22. I have the last update i think (22.4.1 Beta 13).

    Saving a shortlist is pointless because it is saved as .slf instead of .fmf
  • shwanko71's avatar

  • robevz's avatar

    Errors when opening FM Genie Scout, install the program in the game's folder, it is solved.
  • nickcabo's avatar
    is there a flag (or something else) to filter only players with no work permit to obtain to play in England?
    I know that players from some EU countries (but not all EU countries) do not need it to play in England.
    If I select "Region - UK & Irish" I'm leaving out all the biggest EU countries (Italy, France, Germany, Spain, ...); if I select "EU National" I'm including some nations that need it (Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria ...).
    Thank you
