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.

    Unfortunately, who uses FM22 in gamepass will not be able to use GS, could someone help us how to solve this "game not found" problem?
  • Kisek's avatar
    Eugene, thank you for the update.
    Sadly the Gamepass version seems to be causing problems quite often with the new updates and I can confirm it doesn't also work for me.

    geniescout'ta kaydettiğimiz kısa listeyi oyuna ekleme problemini çözebilen var mı ?

    Can anyone solve the problem of adding the shortlist we saved in geniescout to the game?
  • artvandelay80's avatar
    Thank you Eugene Tarabanovsky. Football Manager means Genie Scout.
  • blazerazgriz's avatar
    Thank you so much. Its working!

    xbox oyun geçişi ile çalışmıyor. 22.4 güncellemesi var ama genie scout oyunu yüklemiyor. Yönetici olarakda çalıştırıyorum gene oyunu bulamıyor
    English translate: Doesn't work with xbox game pass. There is update 22.4 but genie scout won't load the game. I'm running as administrator and still can't find the game.
  • celalpekcaliskan's avatar
    When I save the shortlist, how do we open it in the game? This has never improved.
  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    Public edition works perfect for me. Thanks a lot to Eugene and also Stam.
  • nickjrs's avatar
    Good night, I use FM22 on gamepass (xbox) on the PC, but when I start GS22 it doesn't find the game, and the FM22 editor works perfectly, only GS22 doesn't work.

    how to solve football manager is not found problem it was working fine before winter update
  • ataksss's avatar
    thank you for all ur efforts guys...
  • Stam's avatar
    The much-awaited winter update of Genie Scout 22 is now available. Enjoy!
  • Stam's avatar
    I had already confirmed the update for the public GS22 should be expected during the weekend. Of course most people can no longer see that because you're spamming the comments with unnecessary messages, so my previous comment moved to page 2.
    Anyway, I'm waiting on Eugene to finish it and send me the files. We just spoke. It should be available here before midnight.
    I'll be clearing more comments tomorrow, and my request to you is to wait patiently for the update and try to resist the urge to post until the update arrives.

    We are not cheating the game..Its not a multiplayer game so its not cheating..You can the play tha game however you want..And some of us are using genie scout just because we cant play for 4-5 hours a day cause we have families..Fking idiots everyone think that using genie scout is cheating
  • hvurmaz's avatar
    my friend, first of all, nobody is forcing anybody, there is a service here and there is a date provided, we also have the right to get information, don't philosophize on me at the keyboard, be a man
  • OZ52's avatar
    What I do not understand is all the people here crying and whining about something they don´t pay for. It´s a free tool. Man, be happy about the existence of such a thing and that there´s one man who sacrifies his time three times a year so you can enjoy cheating Football Manager.. And if you don´t agree with it, keep your mouth shut and play the game without Genie, by using your scout, as the game you play prescribes.

    And to all disrespectful Turkish commentors here:

    Adam olun lan!
  • Adomas24's avatar
    There will be no update and you can all start to play the game normally, using in-game scouts. No need to thank me.
  • RoughRaider's avatar
    What a shame. İf you not gonna update just tell the truth. Dont play with us.
  • Alberto Anborras's avatar
    where is the update on public edition?? If you not gonna update it just say it..dont fool us
  • waxon-waxoff's avatar
    I hope it comes out Sunday at 11:59 pm est time.
  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    They already told the update will arrive at the weekend. So there is nearly 24 hours more. We waited for one month, we can wait at least 1-2 more days.
