Genie Scout 23g 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 issues:
- Sale value for players is not accurate and sadly we have no way of making it work as it used to be before GS13.
- In-Game Scout works, but not always for everyone. Eugene is still trying to find a way to make it work more consistently.

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.


Genie Scout 23 is created by Eugene Tarabanovsky.
He has been developing this amazing scout utility for the past 17 years!

  • Shaigo's avatar
    Will there ever be a true dark mode version of this? the white super bright screen kills my eyes.
    Also I believe there are some bugs not sure where to report them to
  • Creezog's avatar
    Now that FM24 beta is out, has there been an update regarding FM Genie Scout 24?
  • Stam's avatar
    @ewazana: Wait for the FM24 Beta to drop first. Once that happens we'll know more.
  • ewazana's avatar
    When & where can I Donate to Eugene for the FM24 G version?
  • RPGFan's avatar
    I do not think it will ever be compatible with mac, however the main issue for me is how slow it is for initial load. If you have a save with over 30,000 or 40,000 players better be patient (combined with all you need to wait to get through FM load screens).

    One day we will have for Mac?
  • sen123's avatar
    Hi, the scout keeps crashing on load up. Anyone else experiencing the same?
  • LHSmith's avatar
    Hi does anyone know why all of a sudden im getting an error message, invalid floating point, after using Genie Scout for years without any problems
  • Azeiteiro's avatar
    I have sent two emails to Eugene on different days, but so far the answer has been silence. In the past, he would send a new key within a few hours. Eugene's life may be different now, as the country is unfortunately at war and he will have other priorities. Who knows if this was the last genie scout, I hope not, but it was not very common for us to be left without support.
