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.

    GS22 has been updated for the new 22.4.1 patch. Enjoy!

    I usually always play with steam in offline mode. Forgot twice this year and it’s destroyed my enjoyment. Hopefully the wait won’t be a long one as it’s only another small update.
  • thomsenrox's avatar
    Not working here as well... Is it because of the FM-update, or another issue? Hoping for a quick fix...
  • Makis's avatar
    I have the latest version of genie scout (v1.0 22.4 beta 12) but doesnt work. The message is Your version of Football Manager is not supported. What happened? How i can fix it?
  • OZ52's avatar
    The comment below (MDW300C) is a nice solution. And if you're a lower division team picker like me, a loyal clubman with the goal to grow your club into world class over the decades, it doesn't even matter if you buy the newest Football Manager. I always play a one year older version, so I never have this update problem anymore (untill this year, I treated myself the newest FM and regretted it because of the updates :D)
  • MDW300C's avatar
    There is a workaround for this for next time. Unless you play on line games or store to the cloud, you can set Steam to offline mode. You can play to your hearts content and if they update FM you wont get the update. When you get the email from Eugene you can then turn Steam to online and get all their updates including FM22. But then you will already have the FM GS update so no drama. Then you just need to change Steam back to offline until the next update comes.

    However there is a fair chance that this is the last update for FM22 anyhow.
