Genie Scout 23g Explained

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!

    tried emailing eugene but it seems he dont want to respnd 3 days now all i want is a simple answer explaining why all my regens after 4 seasons are not above 11% POD its not normal
  • Driezeprieze's avatar
    4 weeks till the public edition will be online so count the days :)
  • EvandroRoncatto's avatar
    @Eugene & @Stam, Donate link is still broken for days so we cannot donate and reach G edition. Eugene, please share the public version earlier because we just cannot donate and reach Genie Scout.
  • AmaralC04's avatar
    when will the update for gs23 normal version come out?
  • Mostarski Zrinjski's avatar
    What if I told you, you can still play FM23 without using cheeky scouting/editing tool eh?
  • robevz's avatar
    my other issue now is part from all really good regens having only 11% POD is when i open a staff membe rup on genie only half a page opens so displays technical coaching only not the mental side and no option to maximise the screen
  • Pahars's avatar
    @LCS: Thank you for the link! I used GS23g and it worked!
    Started a new save :-).
  • Chriswin4's avatar
    So I downloaded the GS 23g link from below and it loads with my save, but I haven't donated, is there a way I can fix this? Or have I accidentally stolen it. Nevermind, it doesn't work properly hahaha. Just need the donate page to be fixed.
  • FMEDJR's avatar
    I want to donate, please make de donation page available.
  • vaisvilkas01's avatar
    LCS, clearly thank you
  • LCS's avatar
    @vaisvilkas01 - I'm not sure what could be the issue, I had already installed GS 23g but with earlier patch (23.2), and just installed this one in the same folder. And that's it, no issues.

    The only thing that pops up in my mind is that maybe you don't have the activated 23g (the paid version)? If that's correct unfortunately it won't work for you and I guess that a basic version will be shared much later than this one.
  • nting224's avatar
    Is there any other way for me to donate / get the key file?
  • vaisvilkas01's avatar
    Please explain to me, I downloaded this version of the scout (which was below), but still requires a different version of FM. I am writing with a translator.
  • Mikethemanc's avatar
    @LCS That worked perfectly - thank you
  • LCS's avatar
    I didn't receive any email since my purchase, but I found that Stam posted a link with a new version for 23g in Genie Scout chat:

    You just need to download it and install (just choose same location, it will overwrite existing files). It's working just fine. It's true, that there is always some issue after main FM updates, and this should be officially announced to everyone, but come on- it's just three days since the update. Sometimes you just need to dig deeper than just a comment section.

    check your junk folders
  • sjuerev's avatar
    so the g edition is yet to be updated?
  • Mikethemanc's avatar
    @sjuerev I haven't got one yet, no.
  • sjuerev's avatar
    I didn't get an email with an update... Did everyone else get one?
  • robevz's avatar
    works for me guys i just used the email that eugene sent out ....try loading genie up & in the top left click the G... then help & support then check for new version....if there is a new version download it that way see if it works
  • tjuggepirre's avatar
    Same for me, just get " your game data is not found "
  • Mikethemanc's avatar
    @robevz The g edition isnt working for me since the update
  • robevz's avatar
    @oferozery yes the g edition is working but my only issue is 4 seasons in all regens have a POD OF 11% which basically means every single regen in 4 years does not have a future in the game haha
    as far as i am aware the donation site is broken & they are aware of it
  • OferOzery's avatar
    Hi everyone, I'm new here. Two quick questions:

    1. Do g users have a working version now?
    2. Am I the only one who tried to make a donation and the website said the page is unavailable?
  • robevz's avatar
    @stam ok thanks mate ive had no reply so wouldnt know if you did it or not but thanks buddy i will try to message him too
