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.

    @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?

    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.

    It's a shame, friends, it's a shame to call someone you don't know a thief.
  • LimeMyGuy's avatar
    When i try to load my game into genie it says im not on the latest version of fm 23, but i am and genie is updated to the latest version
  • Kanonier23's avatar
    Yeah same problem. Where is the key? So Eugene is a thief?
  • Diosh's avatar
    I donated on 2 weeks ago and still didn't get the code
  • Nukool51's avatar
    why it said not support version 24.0
  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    As a G version donater, I also wait for public version because G version works slower, and it also effects the game's speed. It works a bit faster with public version.
  • artvandelay80's avatar
    Today is Ramadan Feast in Turkey, maybe Eugene will do a favor today and release the public version.
  • duszyna's avatar
    Just received my key, thanks Eugene.
  • wty's avatar
    how time update public GS23?
  • duszyna's avatar
    I donated on Tuesday and still didn't get the code?
  • caloides's avatar
    @harrow FMRTE does the same thing Genie Scout does, the difference is Genie just "predicts" how players will develop, and gives them an overall potential rating considering the future and present stats, depending on their weight for a specific position. FMRTE also gives them a potential rating, but depending on their CA-PA relation. And the prediction Genie does is just a prediction, it can change a lot depend on how a player is trained
  • harrow's avatar
    Surely there is someone out there that knows how to code/ copy Genie Scout. Maybe someone that knows Eugene can ask to see if he is willing to share his Genie Scout?
  • wipzzer's avatar
    Is 23G (paid version) compatible with version 23.4 of the game?
  • Jaginho's avatar
    Yo any date yet for the public release...thanks for the effort
  • mertdemir's avatar
    eugene must be in dire straits and directly affected by the ongoing war otherwise he would have already released the public version, money talks dudeess
  • Kad38's avatar
    Hello when will the update of the PUBLIC version please ? I find that it takes a lot of time anyway ? And thank you for the work
  • waxon-waxoff's avatar
