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.

    I can't run installer? Error of non permission to access the file....also run it on admnistrator mode and nothing....any advice?
  • mattias333's avatar
    Is there a way of getting emails specifically about new versions of genie coming out etc. I know there is the news letter but it be brilliant if the second a new update comes out everyone could just automatically get sent an email to stop lots of repeat posts on here etc. Keep up the good work guys and gals.

    @ricardofly Yep! I'm using 22g, it's great! You can check role suitability and potential of development. Very useful features. I've been using the G version for a few years. Have been donating every year.

    Sadly, it does not seem to be working for Game Pass versions of FM22 at the moment. HOPEFULLY an update comes out soon to fix that.
  • ricardofly's avatar
    does anyone here purchased the genie scout 22g recommend or is it the same as normal?
  • mattias333's avatar
    Apologies. I downloaded the new update this morning and didn't realise FM had released another update after that. I will await the newer update. Hopefully asap as boy do I need genie right now lol! (tried running as administrator and no luck sadly)

    Hello guys, first of all thank you once again for your hardwork.
    I got a problem this year when loading a shortlist in-game I can't seem to find it,it's in a diferent Type file,it's .SLF while it needs to be .FMF to work.
    Can someone help me on that?
    thank you once again!
  • hessemte's avatar
    Didn't seem to have a delay for the the major 22.2 hotfix (or maybe you were faster than ever :) ) was posting just in case and to know if I it really could be because of the GP version.
    Ty for the answer @stam (and also @bladur earlier) and sorry for bitching :p
  • Panga's avatar
    I wasn't aware there was a delay for Gamepass/Xbox editions, this is the first time I've not had the steam version. Is it perhaps worthwhile having that information in the 'Compatibility' section of the page?
  • Stam's avatar
    Spamming the comment section won't make anything go faster. Every new patch arrives first on Steam/Epic and there's a significant delay until it arrives to Xbox edition and Gamepass. We are very much aware of all new patches as soon as they get released, and we do our best to roll out updates in timely manner. All you need to do is be patient. Thank you for understanding.

    Not working for gamepass version :(
  • koper1473's avatar
    @bladur I have Game Pass version. Running as administrator don't fix problem with "FM not found". GS don't see Football Manager game running with Game Pass.
    I think we must wait for fix.
  • DopeSensei's avatar
    I cant seem to get the igs to work.... is there a fix to this?
  • celalpekcaliskan's avatar
    After saving the watch lists we saved in the program, the game of transferring to the problem continues.
  • tomd17's avatar
    Appreciate all your hard work on this Eugene, we're all lucky to have you and your fantastic tool available to us!
  • Panga's avatar
    I'm having the same issue as @hessemte. Also using the GamePass version. Doesn't seem to recognise that the game is running.
  • ricardofly's avatar
    I'm thinking about donating to get the "g" from the genius scout, but I'm afraid, does anyone recommend it?
  • bladur's avatar
    @hessemte not sure why, it could be the GamePass version. I've run it as Administrator and worked fine.
    @mattias333, on the Genie Scout icon on the desktop just right-click it and use the option "Run as Administrator" it should work.
    @ricardofly, download the version that was uploaded today and run it as admin it should work.
  • ricardofly's avatar
    is it already a new genie scout update?
  • mattias333's avatar
    Downloaded the updated Genie scout today 14/12/21 and getting access violations when launching.
  • hessemte's avatar
    seems to have some issues with the latest update from GS; "FM not found, make sure you use FM 22 22.0.1 and higer; try to run GS with administrator rights", which I did. Weird as the latest build from FMRTE runs like a charm.
    (Playing with GamePass version, that could be the issue)

    For those of you who don’t know - FM was (once again) updated today. Eugene is working on updating Genie Scout to become compatible.

    10 level England is not working ?
  • mattias333's avatar
    Apologies if its already been highlighted but on the 'Club List' tab on the latest version it no longer displays TF, YF, JC and YR correctly. Happy to supply an image if it helps fix the issue.
  • DexK's avatar
    I open fm genie scout 22 and a "List index out of bounds (6936736)" popup error appears, I press OK and then another popup windows show saying "Access violation at address 009E39B4 in module "FMGenieScout.exe". Read of address 00000078"

    I already tried opening with admin rights and already uninstalled and installed genie scout again, but error persists.

    Using FM22 from the XBOX Game Pass.

    Is anyone having this same issue?..
