Bug Reports

During closed beta stage for supporters, most bugs that came to surface were fixed. 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 ('g' edition feature) doesn't currently work.
- The image on the setup screen shows GS23 (ignore it, we'll update that picture soon)

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.

    The application seems to be working smoothly for now, thank you, but I have two minor problems. 1- In-Game Scout feature does not work. 2- I am using a Türkiye lower leagues patch. I am coaching a team from the bottom league in Turkey. Whenever I want to look at the Top Players tab from genie scout with this team, I get the "Invalid floating point operation" error. When I choose a team from the default leagues in FM, there is no such problem. However, I was very curious why this was the case in this team. The team doesn't even have professional status :D. I wonder if this is about it? What exactly could be the problem?

    My fm genie scout 24g isn't working. When I try to load it it ends up freezing, tried uninstalling and reinstalling, tried quitting and starting fm along with the same for scout.

    Anyone else have this problem? Any ideas/solutions I can try? Thanks in advance.

    Same error again after this update. "Football Manager is not found" @Stam can you check this error? As I can see many people have this problem. I am using Genie correctly, with FM and tool being upldated to the latest versions but still not working. There must be some problem or bug in between.

    I forgot to mention my issue started happening after installed latest update
  • ststense's avatar
    Doesn`t work anymore. "Your game data is not found"
  • waxon-waxoff's avatar
    I believe I have encountered a bug. I have the latest G version. All players have 20 stats.

  • Pinga31PT's avatar

  • OzziT's avatar
    I found a specific problem. FMScout works on latest FM24 but not on the InGameEditor version. Is there no solution for that?
  • robevz's avatar
    mine simply says game not found it was working at 4am uk time...put it on at 11.30 am game not found so not sure if SI have done another update or not
  • notfloppy's avatar
    Same issue for me. Defender says it has detected the aforementioned Trojan
    Maybe the downloadlink has been compromised.
  • Solesio's avatar
    When downloading the new version I get the windows alert for the program extension. This did not happen with the previous version. It could be said that it is a false positive but I have a bad feeling about this extension, has it happened to you?

    The extension name is Trojan script wacatac.B!ml
  • Pisto98's avatar
    Once you have downloaded and installed the new version of fm genie scout 24g. I copy the key in the fm genie scout 24g folder, and when I start the program it tells me that "the key file is not found".

    Can anyone help me?
  • steffeman's avatar
    The new version worked once to load after the install. When I try again, it does not work, same problem last version. Please fix this issue :(

    Hi guysis anyone having the problem where genie scout opens the programme but nothing appears? doesn't show on the screen?
  • masca31's avatar
    same as steffeman, many times this version doesn't find FM and say to make sure that we use FM24 24.0 or higher, wich is the case. But sometimes it works, this make no sense at all
