Using this EDITOR ------------------ You do not have to run the game to use the editor, although you CAN use the editor while the game is running.
When you launch the editor, it will open a requester window asking you to select your savegame file. It will automatically look here for your savegame files:
(MAIN DRIVE):\Users\(USER NAME)\Saved Games\Sword of the Stars II\Saved Games
If your savegames are located elsewhere, use the requester to select the proper folder and savegame file.
Once you have loaded a savegame, use the options to modify the savegame.
The editor assumes you are player 1, and the changes are permanent, so make backups or multiple saves of games to experiment. The editor ONLY affects YOUR values, not the AI.
To see the changes, obviously you need to load the savegame from the actual game.
Numpad 1: Load Savegame Numpad 2: Massive Credits Numpad 3: Unlock All Research
Numpad 1: Load Savegame - use this to re-load the savegame or to pick another savegame to edit.
Numpad 2: Massive Credits - press this key and the savegame will automatically give you 999999999 credits.
Numpad 3: Unlock All Research - press this key and the savegame will unlock all the available tech that was possible to be researched.
This trainer will allow you to customize the keys if you desire! There are two ways to do this. One is the built-in custom key creation and the other is the Trainer Customizer.
Built-in Custom Key Creation (this feature is not in Promo Trainers)
To create a custom key, make sure you have pressed F1 to activate the trainer. Next, mouse over the option description on the trainer and press the left mouse button. You will hear "Select Key". Select the key on your keyboard that you wish to use. The program will then say "Activated" and the option listed on the trainer will update to the key you selected and will have "Custom" before it. You can also click ANY option with the mouse button and then press the ESC key to reset the trainer options back to their default keys. You will need to do this each time you start the trainer or use the Trainer Customizer described below.
Alternatively, you can also use our Trainer Customizer to accomplish this! Download it from our trainer troubleshooting page (link below).

In an effort to maintain the integrity of the files downloaded from our site and to prevent illegal file sharing, this trainer will perform an authenticity check while in use. This check requires an Internet connection and the trainer will not run if a connection is absent or if the trainer is blocked by a security application. NO INFORMATION, PERSONAL OR OTHERWISE, IS SENT TO CHEAT HAPPENS DURING THIS PROCESS. This check is only performed on trainers that have been personalized for individual use, not our PROMO or FREE trainers. If you want/need to use the trainer offline, please go to our trainer troubleshooting page for instructions on how to obtain an offline key to avoid online checks.

However I do have to wonder what made you decide to make a trainer now, considering the game isn't even finished (and hardly even playable). It's in a pre-beta state and going to receive massive patching in the upcoming months.
