Green Goblin II:
I downloaded GS 13 and I maked donation - but I've received GS 13g edition. Do I have to donate once more to get GS 14g?
Then you probably donated for the GS13g edition! On the donation page, you choose for which GS version you wish to donate for. Please email Eugene at genie AT fmscout DOT com

wkdsoul:
Which stats affect the % rating for player development?
I honestly don't know, only Eugene could answer that.

serhataydin:
It always give no response error when it uploads the teams and it freezes and doesn't work.

How to report a bug for Genie Scout.

gelasio:
I donate last year. Do I have access to this year g version?
No, you need to donate again. I updated the original post to answer this question.

andersonv1:
Why not make this open source so that we can help maintain and speed things up with FM genie scout updates?
Check out Eugene's interview for GS11, he explains why.

gloryhornet:
Why when exporting data, the current and potential ability columns are not included?
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 rest information belong to SI and SEGA.

mssl39:
I have already donated 3 dollar canadian to Eugene got the 14G but I have not gotten the key file from my email.
Please email Eugene.

leestevenson1988:
I choose to donate $3 which works out £1.85 but when I purchased it through paypal I was charged £3.83?
I don't know how the donation service works, I'm not involved in it. Perhaps it has some extra fee for the PayPal option. Please email Eugene.

h_ramplou:
Comment contacter Eugène pour obtenir plusieurs clés pour différents pc?
Please email Eugene.

matt758:
when I load the scout saying that the key file can't be found
You need to place the key file Eugene must have sent you by email to GS14g installation folder. Without it, you will get this message and search results will have random characters.

Hello, I did not have an account on this site, but donated $15 through the donate link. Up to now I have not received any email confirming the donation. I have just signed up using the same email address I used in the donation. I don't have a unique ID or anything, I just followed the donation link. It did not ask me to login (as I said. I did not have an account when I donated). How can this be resolved?

The donation amount don't seem to work, i'm looking at donating $3 but its showing more than that. anyone else encounter the same probs?
  1. I had donated
  2. have the download link for Genie 14g
  3. Still waiting for the key file.

When I open Genie 14g and load game, it said "Football Manager Not Found". Is this normal considering that I havent receive the key file ?

Managed to sort this out, its my browser problem. was using Google chrome initially, switched to mozilla the amount corrected.

I received both the GS14g together with the key within an hour however, in order to work, u have to provide unique ID from the workstation you're playing FM on.

Having said that, use your FM installed computer to request for GS14g not others. Have to wait for Eugene to be online for my renewed key and whatnot.

Cheers
I have donated and I received a key file. Did everything according to the procedure, but the player positions and attributes are wrong! What should I do? I have contacted Genie, but no answer to my private messages!
Hello. Just want ask something. Is it normal to have such a huge disparity between genie scout sale value and sale value ingame? Genie scout so far never matched any ingame sale value :D

Thank you!
Hi ive donated and not received my key file
Thx
Guess it was money wasted not happy!!
Hello everyone,

I just want to say that I donated to Eugene yesterday, receive the link to Genie Scout 2014 and after 1 hour I received the key, so everything is ok!

A bit confused here. I donated and still waiting for the email. But on the other tab, my order still isn't complete because it asked for my Unique ID.

The question is, if I donate for the Genie Scout 2014, should I wait for the email and put Genie Scout 14 Unique ID or I just use Genie Scout 12 or 13 Unique ID?

Edit: I tried to put the Genie Scout 12 & 13 Unique ID and click complete order, but it display this error message 'Your current order cannot be confirmed.'. What should I do now? And also, I haven't got the email yet.
Does the free version to be published?
2013-10-17 00:21#138177 Stam : People who support the development of Genie Scout with donations every year, are entitled to receive the special "g" edition which is ad-free and has a few extra features.

? DONATE TO EUGENE

I have just donated, what happens now?

  • After the donation you will receive an e-mail with the link to download Genie Scout 14g and a key.g14 file (the key file might arrive in a separate email).
  • That email will also say that you should receive your key within 24 hours. Normally you will receive it faster than that.
  • What to do with the key.g14 file I received in the email?
  • Can I use the key file to another computer?

  • trying to load a game that is new and not saved yet in FM14
If you get a loading error, try the following:
  • Run FMGenieScout.exe as administrator.
  • Make sure to have FM14 open and a game loaded there.
  • Make sure to have your game saved before trying to load it in GS14g.
  • Close FM and re-open it, then try load game again.

Eugene will always aim to fix more issues with the new build.


Differences between the public edition and the 'g' edition


The 'g' edition has no advertisements and a few extra features.

  1. A statistically based model that will show the probability of reaching theoretical maximum of players ability

  2. Progress Rate - shows the predicted speed of player's development, depending on his ambition, determination, professionalism etc

  3. Support for facepacks - if you have custom facepack added to your FM, it should show on player profiles on GS

  4. Top players lists, as you can see on the screenshot here:


Where to find my Genie Scout Unique ID?


Since the public edition of GS14 is not released yet, you should find your Unique ID in Genie Scout 12 or Genie Scout 13.

  1. Once you open GS12/GS13, click the big circular icon to the top left corner that should open the main menu.

  2. Go to 'Help' and then find & click 'Donate' to the right column that slides next to it.

  3. A popup window will come up, you need to copy the Unique ID.


I donated but I haven't received my 'g' edition yet! Why???


The process is almost fully automated.
There is a chance of delay for the delivery of your download link and key file, but shouldn't take more than 24 hours.

Please remember Eugene is handling all donations and their processing on his own. He is a married man with a little daughter and a newborn son, so keep that in mind if you panic or feel frustrated for a possible delay.


What to do with the key.g14 file I received in the email?


In order to make GS work properly, you have to place this file into FM Genie Scout 14g directory (by default 'C:\FM Genie Scout 14g').

The key-file is linked to your PC configuration via Unique ID you provided to Eugene when donating. If your Unique ID changes (due to PC configuration change, or re-installing of OS), all data in the "g" edition of your FM Genie Scout will be distorted. In that case you need to send Eugene your new Unique ID, and he'll provide you with a new key-file.

At any case, do not try to open this file. All you need to do is place it in the correct folder.


Can I use the key file to another computer?


No, Unique ID is actually unique per computer. So you'd have to ask Eugene to provide you with more keys, given that you send him all your Unique IDs.

I donated for GS13g. Do I have to donate for GS14g again?


Yes. Donations go directly to Eugene (GS author) and he needs your support every year to keep producing Genie Scout. If you don't want to donate, you can wait for the public version.
