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!

    @Stam, thanks!
  • Stam's avatar
    @rinso: Email Eugene directly at [email protected] and pass him your new unique ID.
  • rinso's avatar
    what's best way to request a new key file? Donated to genie, as i always do, but I now have a new computer n want to install the g edition on here..
  • Stam's avatar
    @EvandroRoncatto: Eugene handles donations, key files and anything about the g edition, I'm not involved with that. I believe updating the public edition was a fair thing to do because non g users are unable to donate. Hopefully he can sort the issue until the next patch arrives.
  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    Much thanks @Eugene and @Stam. It is a nice behaviour to update public edition earlier than normal because the donation link does not work. Hope you can fix donation link soon.
  • Stam's avatar
    @hmchan: Comments from both "sides" have been removed, while some stayed as well (see pusalik's post for example). You're being bitter because your comment was one of them. You're a member for 4 days and came here just to cause trouble, so consider this your final warning.

    @nicholl: I've asked Eugene, but it's best to post that in the GS forum instead.
  • hmchan's avatar
    So all negative comments are unnecssary, while "Good Job Snakadi" is necessary? Dictatorship is not helpful to anyone, nor does it speed up the process. If you have time censoring comments, why not go find a workable donation system? It's not our fault the link doesn't work.
  • nicholl2102's avatar
    Hi, thank you for the update. Unfortunately, I've downloaded the new version of genie scout and it won't work for me. Getting error message "access violation at address 00B24500 in module FMGenieScout.exe. Read of address 000000078. Anyone else had this problem before?
  • Jaginho's avatar
    Thank you and God bless
  • pusalik's avatar
    thank you eugune and stam.

    we are grateful
  • Stam's avatar
    Removing unnecessary messages that spammed the comment section for the past week. Continuously asking for an update to a free tool or feeling entitled to one is not helpful to anyone, nor does it speed up the process.

    Eugene has a certain policy for rewarding his direct supporters (delay the update of the public edition after game launch and main winter patch) and there wouldn't be an update now if the donation system worked.
  • hmchan's avatar
    Wanted to thank for the timely update at first. But then I see all negative comments are removed, no I'm not thanking a dictator.
  • Stam's avatar
    As promised yesterday, the public edition of GS23 has now been updated to work with the latest patch. Enjoy.
    The problems with new donations remain unresolved, but I'll keep you posted of any developments.
    If you are a direct supporter and own the g edition, that was always updated within 1 day after every patch. The public edition has always been free and no, you're not buying any service for it.
  • Snakadi's avatar
    Please stop all the comments especially like “it’s our right”… Be patient and thank him for his work. Think about it, if he’s the only one to do it, maybe it’s because it’s not so easy and more supporting and donate give no right on your expectation. Can’t you be a little bit patient, the more when you can read clear communication on the works going on! Damn what a world when everywhere, everyone want all and now!
  • pusalik's avatar

    You were right when you said if the g version worked properly.

    We provide support automatically every time we enter the no one rewards us.If it's hard to make more than 2 updates a year, don't do it at all.We have been using it for a very long time and we inform our environment to use it is our right to ask for the update as soon as possible.
  • ephidor's avatar
    good job !
  • Stam's avatar
    Following the problems activating a new store for donations, Eugene has decided to update the public edition in case the situation remains unsolved until tomorrow, and will evaluate next steps by the time the 2nd winter patch arrives.
  • Lillois's avatar
    @pusalik I suggest reading again what Stam said instead of spamming in here.

    "The public edition is not updated yet. Assuming it will become possible to onboard new g users shortly, that update will be delayed as it normally happens twice a year (first release, main winter patch). It's Eugene's way of rewarding his direct supporters."

    Some people here really need to relax a bit.
  • Jaginho's avatar
    Nobody is even remotely concerned about our man... remember he's Ukrainian guys so take a chill pill
  • pattrick86's avatar
    I understand and respect that people can be impatient when Genie Scout stops working, but please everybody also bear in mind that there's a war going on in Eugene's home country. And even then, nobody can be available 24/7. We now have a working update after 2 days of playing the game as the makers intended it. Keep up the good work Eugene!
  • Stam's avatar
    The g edition was updated last night for the 23.3.1 patch. If you haven't received an email about it, go to Help & Support > Check for New Version within the app to find the download link to the latest build 1310.
    Donations remain unavailable for new g users. Eugene has set up a new solution and waiting to get it activated. In theory, that could be ready later today. I'll post another comment once we have news.

    genie scout fix has been released guys so get downlaoding =)
  • bigos86's avatar
    You can use the FM editor to check some player stats. It may not be the detail of FM Scout, but it helps.
  • loacker's avatar
    FM relased an update yesterday, that's the reason why we can't use the scout for now, until Eugene will release an update....
  • JoaoRenato's avatar
