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!

    hi so today i try to update my "g" edition that i got last year and i can t because it says "Downloading files directly on our download servers is only allowed for FM Scout users. Go to to find the relevant download page of the file you're trying to grab." huh wtf?
  • Mkstatto's avatar
    Latest g version reporting two trojans via Windows Defender. Beware!!!

  • Stam's avatar
    @Angelski: I assume Eugene will email all 'g' edition users, yes.

    @robevz: I already told him about it. You can message him directly at [email protected] as well.

    @EvandroRoncatto @romain.gerault: You're right. Eugene is aware and looking into it.
  • Angelski's avatar
    Stam. I guess "g' edition users will get notified by email about its update, right?
  • robevz's avatar

  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    @Stam as it is already mentioned, donate to Eugene link is broken at the moment.
  • romain.gerault's avatar
    @stam thanks for the news but currently we can't donate for the g edition can you see the problem with eugene please? and thank you for all the hard work :-)
  • Stam's avatar
    I've alerted Eugene about today's patch release as soon as it dropped. There's a chance he'll be able to roll out an update version of GS23 late at night. If not, then tomorrow. Referring to the 'g' edition of course. The update for the public edition will be delayed for a few weeks as it usually happens on 2 occasions each year (first release and main winter update).
