    Patiently waiting. For me, the game is so much more enjoyable with the tool. I only use it for CA/PA information but it's worth the wait to me (and the donation).

    Hi, is the FM Genie Scout available for public release soon and does that mean its is soon for the people who are subscribed to the newsletter or the whole public? Thanks keep up the good work.

    Some years ago, I could see a similar discussion when Genie decided to distribute the game only if you had made a donation. Not only a lot of people got angry, even when he decided to release the game with or without donation, some users apremiated Genie to release the game, not taking on that it's a voluntary and FREE work (except donations, which are voluntary too). Also Genie is not a professional developer, hired by a sofware company.

    In my case, some years ago too, I developed an update for the current FM version at this time. All people gave changes, proposal, and I did it when I had time. So, a lot of people too, asked me to release the new version INMEDIATELY, without take on that we're not forced by someone to make something we like.

    to all the impatient ones - it will be released, in the meantime, do something else, read a book, watch a movie, play another game.....

    keep up the good work lads
  • eames's avatar
    Hey guys just want to say thanks for taking the time and effort for the release each and every year. Keep up the good work!
  • Stam's avatar
    Apparently we won't release it today which moves possible date for tomorrow or Monday. The main reason is a problem with the advertising module of the tool, which we're hoping to solve soon. As I said, the best you can do by complaining is to waste our time and delay the release further.

    And to be honest, we could delay it for a week just to make something perfectly clear for everyone:
    it will be ready when it's ready and all you can do is wait.
    But we won't, because there are thousands of loyal fans who are silently waiting.

    For the impatient ones who have been / are being / will be disrespectful, be warned that your account will get banned or deleted (depends on how fresh the account is and what is your contribution towards our community). So, if you're planning to use your account only to rant, think again ;)

    Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

    @krlj1987: No, we didn't send out any emails yet. But read the article again please: could be for half a day or two days...
    I wonder why people take 2 days for a fact and not half a day instead :)
  • krlj1987's avatar
    I understand that. I just mean if the people who get the newsletter were supposed to get it 2 days early and the deadline is in 2 days at the most, then we should have received an email to say so. I understand there may be delays or issues with the release, but i just wanted to be informed on why its delayed.
  • Justice's avatar
    @krjl, with festive period coming up and with the release of the public version of Genie Scout immanent, Eugene is extremely busy. Don't worry, you will get it soon :)
  • krlj1987's avatar
    Has anyone who has registered their email address received genie scout yet? I don't mean to sound impatient, just curious. Stam said the latest date would be Monday, but I thought you got GS14 2 days earlier if you gave them your email address. Therefore, today would be the very latest to get the email.
  • Justice's avatar
    You see, you can abuse Stam, Eugene, Genie Scout team & FM Scout staff all you want, but that won't change anything. If you guys had any sort of knowledge or decency about yourselves, you would ask a staff member privately if you have a question....rather than abuse people here in public (which only makes you look just as bad). If you have an issue, don't make a bigger one, because then you will definitely not be receiving any help from Stam, Eugene, or anybody else. So either be nice and receive help, or be an ass and look like one, your choice people.

    On a more positive note, as a former staff member here, I am very pleased with all the positive feedback about Genie Scout and indeed the site. A lot of hard work has gone in to both, and everybody appreciates the compliments and encouragement left by the majority of our community :)

    @bradwilko, go here

  • bradwilko's avatar
    I've just went to donate to Eugene. But i don't have a unique ID !? I havent had Genie Scout before and want to use it. What should i do ? Please get back to me ASAP ....
  • sTedDarzZ's avatar
    hi, not trying to hate on you eugene or stam, really appreciate how much work goes into genie scout which is a fantastic tool. Eugene does not have to make this tool free, there are a lot of people who would happily pay for it, if i were a bit older then i certainly would! Just want to clarify, presuming it will now be out tomorrow or monday? Just want to know whether to wait now or to come back and check tomorrow? Thanks for all the hard work and for the brilliant tool which is GenieScout :)
  • Stam's avatar
    There's nothing more to add. Public version will be ready when it's ready.

    @MinistryOfDarkness: Agreed. I don't know if they're kids, but it's pointless arguing with people who can't understand and/or respect 3 simple facts. At any case, I believe I've made myself clear and answered to all common questions.

    @ruifcp: I wouldn't call it a war. Just a couple of "unappreciative ranters", as Red till im dead called them aptly earlier.

    @andy266: It's not certain we'll produce FMEL 2014, because the main author of the app has to serve his military duty now and won't be able to work on FMEL. We'll try but can't promise anything at the moment.

    Hey Freeloaders,

    Instead of bitching to Stam about the free version of Genie Scout, how about you get your credit/debit card out and donate a fiver to Eugene and you'll have it straight away.
    As far as making money out of it, Eugene is a family man with a full time job who does this in his spare time, (No offence Eugene) but i doubt hardly anyone in the Ukraine earns a fortune.

    So if you want to bitch then do it elsewhere.

    Note to Stam: When is FMEL 14 coming out - you haven't answered on that page.

  • MinistryOfDarkness's avatar
    I don't get some people here, how can they be so rude I don't understand that? I mean we all here are downloading this fantastic tool for FREE every damn year and now there are some kids who can't wait a little while longer to release the Genie.. You all have to understand what it means to have a job, wife and 2 kids that is a huge responsability..
    P.S. Stam you are a grown man and I think it's not appropriate that you argue with kids.
