Game Trainers, What Are They?

Trainers, like any other piece of software, will sometimes have compatibility problems. The important thing to remember is that you're cheating. You're trying to manipulate the game to work in a way that the programmers never intended. Sometimes the programmers go out of their way to make this more difficult. Here's a few things you can try if you're having problems getting trainers (ours or any other) to work:

Make sure you have the right version. If the trainer is written for v1.1 and your game has been patched to v1.2 then this is a good reason for the trainer to fail. Trainers are looking for very specific places in memory or the executable and updates tend to shift these locations around. Many times you can reinstall the game back to the level needed to get the trainer to work. Otherwise you will need to wait for a new version of the trainer to be released.

Disable any third-party programs you may be using such as FRAPS and/or Antivirus. These third party programs sometimes cause issues with the video system or with the memory space the trainer is trying to occupy. Some antivirus programs protect memory locations and can actually stop the trainer from modifying those values. Disabling them while playing can many times cause the trainer to start working. You should always scan the trainer with your antivirus or anti-spyware application to make sure it's clean before disabling to run with the game.
