The public edition comes with 2 banner ads.
The "g" edition has no ads and includes a few minor extra features.

In order to get the "g" edition, you need to donate to Eugene.

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!

    mattw123, I tell it like I'm telling a fool: "Eugene lives in Canada, not Ukraine." Did you understand? Also, we are all against war and we hate Putin. I hope you understand that too.
  • Stam's avatar
    The much-awaited update for the public edition of GS22 will likely arrive in the next few days. I still need to confirm this with Eugene, but normally it should be available here before Monday.
    I'm hoping the final 22.4 winter patch will drop this week, as that would save some time with the updating process.
  • mattw123's avatar
    At the risk of being banned, you are all self entitled little twerps, squaabbling over a free tool provided to you at the full expense of someone else. If Eugene stopped making Genie scout tomorrow, that would be entirely his decision.

    He currently has issues accessing all his files and data due to what is going on. Grow up and learn some manners, tolerance and patience you giant babies

    No need to fight guys, hope we all agree that Russia and their war crimes are the most disgusting thing right now. That said Im also waiting for more info and Im sure they will give us that soon so please be patience and stop argue about irrelevant things.
  • mattias333's avatar
    Well said Evandro. I think everyone knows how serious things are for those actually in the Ukraine. My comments and I assume others were quite clearly said in jest jokingly saying today will be the day. Deary me.
  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    Kisek and others approach is more disgusting than anything else here. Everybody shared their feelings about tough situation in Ukraine. Personally, I am following news in Ukraine 7/24 since one month ago. Our words will not end the war or will not save Eugene's friends, we can only share our best wishes, which many people already did. People ask for a news. We did not even heard from Stam or Eugene for a long time, we only know what is written here. So at least someone from staff can make us informed. I don't think anyone would argue if Eugene or Stam says FM Genie Scout public edition will not be updated until FM 23. But we would get some news finally.

    Some of you guys in the comments are just disgusting. Do you have any idea what is currently happening in the real world, outside of your FM?
    Innocent people are dying every day - might be Eugene's friends or family.
    Yet you dare to ask when is the Genie update coming... Seriously - have some dignity.
  • artvandelay80's avatar
    It's been 27 days since 22.3.0 was released. At least give a date so we can wait accordingly.
  • mattias333's avatar
    @mattw123 ah I totally get the Ukraine stuff, however a poster said bellow that Eugene is living in Canada currently and initially the release of the G edition said the public one would release 2-3 weeks later which it’s now been. Just keen to get using it. My saves stagnated. Lol
  • robevz's avatar
    just out of curiosity i saw some ppl have problems with their genie..what are the actual problems exactly does it not load or say error when you try to upload it? as mine works fine unless im missing something
  • mattw123's avatar
    @mattias333 - it will be another 2-3 weeks yet. factor in the historical release and the fact that the one person that is responsible for this comes from ukraine, I would say it will come mid to late april
  • mattias333's avatar
    It’s not gonna be the day lol. Just had a feeling. It’s gonna be when I’m back to work. I know it
  • mattias333's avatar
    Hoping today is the day
  • Kad38's avatar
    hi everyone when is the public version coming out please? I think it's quite long....thanks
  • filips's avatar
    Hello guys,

    can I load my game with exclusive edition or I also need to wait for update?
  • robevz's avatar
    all depends how eugene is
    i have the paid version i donate to him every year but at the moment i would do what i do & use scouts just for the time being
    im excited to use genie again as it seems new regens have stopped appearing in my list its the same list as season ebfore but things have gotta wait for now
  • mattias333's avatar
    Looking forward to latest update coming out. Hopefully fm won’t do their usual and release a tiny annoying update making genie not work until it’s updated again. Hope all is well.
  • artvandelay80's avatar
    When will the public version be updated?
  • scorpionsgun's avatar

  • robevz's avatar

  • wessantiagos's avatar
    Guys, i've talked with Eugene, and he told me that he is living on Canada! His parents and friends, still on Ukraine.
  • robevz's avatar
    also ive just been on facebook & if it is the correct page for eugenes account he is actually dressed in army uniform 8th march going to war recorded a video of himself talking so everyone should stop talking about genie for now it is not important
  • robevz's avatar
