OK, I've read through all 43 pages and it took 4-ever but...
I didn't see my issue, so if I missed it, I'm sorry if I'm repeating. I went through the solutions and I'm still having trouble.
When I activate Mega Items and save the game, then load again or enter a new section where it loads on its own and go back to the previous section, I get started out in a random location with a pistol 30 rounds and a grenade like basic starting equipment. Before that however, I had sniper rifle, tranq rifle, pistol, smp, shotgun, assault rifle, loads of ammo, software, grenades and upgrades. but all that's left is a basic pistol and grenade and a few pistol shots.
If I drop all of the Mega Items such as the software which was around 999 each it solves the problem most of the time. hitting the \ key doesn't work at all though. It resets my items to 1 like its supposed to but the glitch still occurs when I load/transition. Also it happens every time and is reliable.
Again sorry if its been mentioned, and I may be the only one with this issue, but I'd appreciate any help.
Also CH crew it seems you guys need like a PR person or some veteran moderators to deflect repetitive questions. Just a thought.
I'm sure I may only be speaking for myself, but for older games such as this there has to be a larger portion of the community showing interest before CH crew will release a new trainer. So the more that speak up the sooner a trainer is released. We are not trying to rush them only to show there is a good sized interest in a new trainer. For each of us that speak up there are probably ten to fifteen more who agree but don't take the time.
