I also notice the other races are getting either my research of my research points when using trainer V1.03. Not only is the research score the same for all players, but I've noticed the AI players also have the same level of ships and tech I have during battles. I'm not sure Dust behaves the same since the AI players cannot generate the same number of ships and planetary improvements as I can using the trainer. Downloading 1.05 today and will see if it is the same.
I haven't noticed the other races getting the same benefits as me. However, I have noticed that if I use the Dust cheat before using the Research cheat, I cannot get the Research cheat to function. However, no problems if I use Research first, then Dust.
ahhhhhhhh! Another frickin awesome cheat prog! I don't expect to get trainers for most of the games I play, but I keep finding one for everyone I have played so far! This thing works great, thanks a ton to the creator! Love this place!
