I'm confused - did I miss something.

I paid for 11g Genie Scout, it stopped working last week with Corrupt Data errors. Worked fine the past.

Now I've downloaded 12 beta, and it opens and works with my current FM2011 database.

To repeat - did I miss something? Why would 11g stop working? Looking at the 11 forum I'm not the only one.
I had the same issue - only trouble is I have compounded the problem now. I uninstalled and reinstalled FM11, and now none of my save games are actually loading, except for the ones I have saved after the install. I am working on downloaded the patch now.....not sure that I can though.

I wasn't expect '11 to stop working, and figured - in my own mind anyway - that GS 12 related to FM12.
I have read on the 11 forum it could be something to do with an ad server.

I'll try 11 again with no internet.
Made no difference disconnecting from the internet. How very peculiar that GS11 stops working when GS12 is released.

As an 11g (i.e. paid) user, I'd be quite within my rights to expect it to work.
thats the oddest thing, surely there shouldnt be any connection between the 2? :s
An answer to this question would be appreciated.

Let's repeat the thread's title one more time: Why has 11 stopped working?

For that matter, let's do it one more time. Let's even bold it and add extra question marks:

Why had 11 stopped working?????????

If that one is too hard, here's an alternate question:

Is there a reason that no one involved with this software will answer the above question, despite the fact that it has now been asked countless times, across these forums, for the past week?
If you were not lazy and actually read all that is mentioned on the GS12 download page you wouldn't complain about this.
Genie Scout 12 is compatible with FM11 savegames.
As to why Eugene chose to disable GS11 from working once GS12 was released, I suppose he just wanted everyone to grab the latest version.

I don't really know if Eugene chose to let the past 'g' owners without the 12g version and expected to receive a new donation about it.
For that I can only repeat for one more time that I'm not involved in any donation towards the GS project and that the delivery of the 'g' version is handled solely by Eugene himself.

P.S. I've taken some time off the site as I was too tired dealing with it for too long. That should answer the part in regards to why you haven't received a reply here.

Stam,

Thanks for the considered reply.

It would be good to get an answer from Genie about the donations: if people pay for 12g now, will that too expire after a certain length of time? It will be in his best interests, as that may be putting people off donating if they think they are getting something that will stop working after a while, like 11g has.

Also any solution to getting 11g working again would be great too - there's bound to be a quick 'hack' we could if it's based on cookies or the like.

Colin.
To be honest, getting the 11g version to stop working is awkward to me and I thought he did it for the public version only, but like I said it wasn't my choice.

I'll try have him post a reply here asap.
