I am having the same issue as MonkeyMan31. If I run the game without the pressing F1 to start the trainer, it does not crash. But if I press F1 and not even the other keys, It crashes when it is about to load the mission and directx diagnosis starts.
I was wondering if you guys could update the 1.01 dx9 and 11 trainers to work with uplay. What's happening is that I can load the game with the cheats and trainer on. Once I get past the 1st video during a campaign talking about the british pilot and go to start the training exercise, the game "loading data" screen appears then the game brings up a window telling me it's saved a crash dump. When I play the game without the trainer, it runs perfectly fine. I just reinstalled it today and wanted to try out the cheats since they are windows 8 compatible now. Please help.
