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.

    Best wishes to you and your family, Eugene!

    E-mail received! Now waiting, patiently as my friend said, for the Xbox edition.

    If you didn't get an e-mail, just open GS22g, go to the top left icon, then Help and Support, then Check For New Version, and Check Now (bottom right)
  • Phyrex's avatar
    Mail received, good job Eugene. But still not working with the game pass version. Waiting patiently.
  • ssilverclan's avatar
    if you have the 22g version, just follow the instructions @Sam gave and you can download new version, on installation it replaces the older one. Quoting Sam : "Normally when you open GS you should get a popup saying there's a new version, and you can find the download link from the app's menu (GS icon top left > Help & Support > Check for new version)." - did the trick for me
