- quit the game + trainer. - start trainer - start game - hit f1 (BEFORE you do anything else) - login and play "offline" / singleplayer
i had the same issue after pausing the game too long. it lost connections to the server. i guess, if anything happens, even if it is losing connection to the server, the trainer stops / quits.
Tried your method. Apparently still the same.
Tested 2 scenario:
1. Hit F1 before login and play. Heard "Activated". Then login and select my character and play single player (not public server). All options in Trainer cannot be use except Num 3 where it crash.
2. Follow as above. Then login and select my character and play single player. When you press Alt-Tab, it goes back to Window mode. I found sometimes the trainer missing. Sometimes it there. Not consistent.
Btw, I use Window Vista, put trainer file in installation folder. It worked fine yesterday.
I have had the same problem with the trainer, usually fixed with a reboot.
The issues I have seen with the trainer: 1. Hitting F1 sometimes the trainer will just crash to desktop no warning. 2. Sometimes all options bar 3 will seem to work (sound) but have no effect in game. 3 will exit game. 3. Sometimes the options will not say "activated" either.
Doesn't matter what I do I get one of the above 3 scenarios, no more. HTH
I've been running these trainers for as long as I have been a member, just doesn't seem to work for me. Win 7 x64. I never use public D3 games.
