Genie Scout 23g Explained

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!

  • playoffkid's avatar
    Ive got a new laptop & need a new key file, can anyone please help?
  • Stam's avatar
    @hvurmaz @Southstandwind: I've asked Eugene about this. He's unable to replicate the issue, therefore I'm not sure what to suggest as a possible solution.
    Do you encounter the same problem with the public edition?
  • hvurmaz's avatar
    i am facing the same problem please help
  • Southstandwind's avatar

    No it's not RAM related. I checked that out and my laptop is very good. Appreciate the reply.
  • Pepesa's avatar
    @southsandwind it could be because it uses a lot of RAM

    Hi @stam

    My version of the scout is constantly "Not Responding" it's almost unusable.

    I have the paid G Version as of yesterday.

    Is anyone else getting this?

    >GS23 will get updated this coming weekend

    The weekend has just begun, relax and spend these two days with benefit. On Monday, I think, it will be possible to play FM with GS.
  • Stam's avatar
    Eugene told me he will try for tonight, but can't promise because he's busy with another situation. If not tonight, then surely tomorrow.

    Football Manager is not found. Please, make sure you are using Football Manager 2023 23.0 and higher. If you're sure ans the problem persists, try to run FM Genie Scout with administrator rights
    I have FM Genie Scout 23g v1.0 23.4 beta 11 vesrion and FM 23.4.0 +1809861
    what would be the explanation? THANKS
  • waxon-waxoff's avatar
    @stam it's fine. Eugene messaged me back a few days ago
  • Kanonier23's avatar
    @Stam Still doesn't have a key :) Good job guys. Cheers

    @Stam @EugeneTarabanovsky @Genie

    Hello, I am having a problem getting the faces and logos to appear on my GS. Look how they appear. Any suggestions on what I can do?
  • Stam's avatar
    Quick update: I've talked to Eugene today and he confirmed that the public GS23 will get updated this coming weekend.
    @LimeMyGuy @Nukool51: Public GS23 isn't compatible with the latest FM23 patch. It will be in a few days.

    @Kanonier23 @Diosh: Make sure to check your spam as the email containing the key attached often ends up there. And if you paid via PayPal, double check your primary email there is the one you're checking for that message.

    @wipzzer @mertdemir: The 'g' edition is always updated within a day or two after every patch. The same applies to the public edition, except game launch and winter transfers patch when there's a 4-week delay.

    @waxon-waxoff: This is quite unusual. I've sent a message to Eugene to ask for a status.

    @lasthawk: For basic scouting (see CA, PA, hidden attributes), you can use FMSE23 until the public GS23 gets updated. You don't need a license for that, unless you need to make edits.

    @Wilker Mendes. Your GS is haunted. Please contact an exorcist
