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.

    This version is extracted from RAR, but then it gives an error while installing. The application does not load. I get an error like the archive is corrupt, you do not have permission to install the application.
  • Ertai's avatar
    I have downloaded the new version and it does not work at all. It keeps giving an error "List Index out of Bounds". I have downloaded the file more than once, installed it, and it keeps returning the same error.

    @simbo11: What do you mean exactly?
    @aeroporos: The download link works fine. Are you getting an error message?

    don't staff search bug

    only staff and player search
  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    Thanks for the fast update. Though, I was using Public version instead of G version because public version works faster than G version. Hope to see public version to be updated soon as well.
  • AndoKvasir's avatar
    How long does one usually have to wait until getting his key after donating? It has been 2 hours since I've gotten the download link for the G version, but no key. Thank you!
  • EPS's avatar

  • YILDIRIM's avatar
    I already got G Edition on 02.04.2023 by donating. How can I update this?
  • DimK77's avatar
    How do we get the g edition? Are we going to get a new key?
  • Stam's avatar
    GS23 has been updated for the 23.5 patch. Enjoy!
  • Stam's avatar
    @Kad38: Both of course. The delay only happens on 2 occasions each year (game launch & winter transfers patch).
  • Kad38's avatar

    Eugène told you that he will update which version ? the pay? the public ? or both ?
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: Eugene told me that he'll be able to update GS23 tomorrow morning.
