Genie Scout 23g Explained

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.

    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?

    Wish it would load saves faster like FM Scout Editor but overall it's a better tool than FM Scout Editor :)

    hi. is it normal that doctors come up as coaches which then when you search by name they don't come up and when you search from team it obviously doesn't let you offer contract?

    While I'm in the beginning of January 2025 (4th of January), Genie Scout doesn't load this date. I already tried to save and load different files, but every time it only loads 28 of December 2024. Any solutions?

    Public version works without any problem. Thanks a lot Eugene and Stam.

    Another buggy release. Got 23 v1.0.23.2 beta 6 but when I try and load player list, it says nothing found. I am on the Scouting > Players in Range page in FM23. Also tried in the Shortlist page.
  • Milano89's avatar
    Thx, but it doesnt load up though.
    It says football manager is not found

    Genie Scout has just been updated for the 23.2 patch. This new version also added compatibility with FM23 Console, fixed a loading issue, as well as sorted the problem with players/staff appearing in the team squad list. Enjoy!
    The 'g' edition has also been updated.
