Regarding the Mega Trainer 1.02 (STEAM/D2D), Super Health, Super Squad Health, E....

Yup... Steam patched a new update and the Mega Trainer 1.02 for steam no longer even knows when the game is running.
I am guessing the regular retail version got patched also.
I am crossing my fingers that this game isn't too old for updates.

It's not a game patch. It's a steam update that has caused some problems with certain titles. On the steam forums they say you need to exit steam and start it back up again and it should fix it.

Now how that affects the trainer I don't know.

nope... This was some type of game update or patch. My custom coalesced ini was overwritten with the defualt. I had to customize it again. The actual ME2 launcher says it was updated on July 30 2011 to version 1.1.0.15

It's only a steam issue, my retail version has no problems. It's not a patch or update from the bioware, it's strictly a steam issue unfortunately. I got this off the forums:

Given the update has caused the game to break, I'd be interested to know what specific game breaking problem does this update address?

If it does not address a game breaking problem then you've taken it upon yourself to fix something that wasn't broken and broken it which requires the very heights of stupidity from the outset.

I've had to wait 30 minutes for this pointless garbage update to complete, using up my precious leisure time for the sake of absolutely nothing and I will think twice before buying from Steam again as a direct result.
It's to enable the new content system in Steam, which will have an enormous raft of future benefits.

store.steampowered.com/news/5856/

It seems arbitrary now, but it'll enable Steam to be a lot better in the future.

It certainly shouldn't have caused the game to break, it should just do the equivalent of validating your game files (like you can do now from the game's properties) and then just carry on like nothing's happened. It does look like the process could do with a bit of streamlining, though.

There's a few others, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Quake 4, Sniper Elite, and one or two others. Sooner or later, it'll be every game on Steam.

Problem solved.....
I should get a shotgun and do a Kurt Kabang to myself for not figuring it out sooner.

Again, my apologies to the admins for cluttering up your boards.
