Donate to Eugene to get the "g" edition

As usual, Genie Scout 23 comes in two editions:
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 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!

    matt367 I agree that it's ok to wait for any update. But you are wrong in saying that they give their time for nothing. Many of us donate to the Genie Scout app every year.
  • matt367's avatar
    You guys do realise Genie Scout is nothing to do with SI? It is created and maintained by fans like you, who give their time and energy for nothing. So, perhaps chill! It's not even been 24hrs since SI updated. Take a week off. Relax. And be thankful when it is working again
  • ybh67's avatar
    still no update
  • robevz's avatar
    if you donated you should have an email when he has done it ..either that or when you load up genie scout click the `G` top left then go to help & support & check for new version
  • EdnotTed's avatar
    Thanks for all the work you guys do on this tool. Any chance we could get an estimate on when the update will be available? Got to get Chester ready for the Prem. Much appreciated.
  • mattias333's avatar
    Come on guys. You know the drill. Stam will update when possible but the updates literally only just dropped out of the blue (not the expected big winter update). Give Eugene a second. I donate for my genie scout and even i'm being patient at the moment. :)

    Hi, I have FM23 Demo to check it out, have downloaded Genie 23 and it keeps saying unable to load football manager not found. Would this be because it is the Demo? or am I doing something wrong? I have linked the save file to where it loads from also

    Good morning, FM Genie Scout 23 stopped working and I get a message when I load it.

    Your game data is not found.

    Please, make sure your game is loaded completely in football manager, and try again.

    if you're sure and the problem persists, save your game in Football Manager, and try again.

  • BrHakim's avatar
    It's been working fine, until today. It said, and I'm paraphrasing that "your key file has been changed please contact so and so to get your new key" but I accidently exited it and now I don't know who to contact?
