Shogun 2: Total War Cheats
It's going to need to be tested but so far I've been able to play without a single hitch with the options enabled, I don't know yet whether this means you'll have to block the connection every time you want to play Shogun 2 with cheats but I just thought I'd post this as a work around for anyone feeling frustrated.
If you go into the firewall settings, you'll find that Shogun 2 has already sneakily installed itself there so it can stop you from cheating in an offline game >_<

Edit: Just found that going into battles still crashes it, auto-fight works okay thought from what I've discovered.

A trainer if causing major problems in game would continue to do so with or without a net connection.
Shogun 2 was buggy.
I was patient with CA because when they put the effort in they can make solid games, but most companies are just DRM obsessed lately.
The problems with the crashes with the trainer aren't due to bugs, but the game itself actively hunting for hacks/exploits/rogue code. Whilst it's a pain in the behind, it's technically a feature.
If you want anti-cheat, put it in multiplayer, you don't put it in singleplayer where it doesn't affect anyone, either that or you provide some simple cheat codes like we used to have. The only good total war games in my view were the original Shogun and Rome.
Shogun 2 is okay, but with the A.I cheating and anti-cheat software it seems like they've completely half-assed it. I also don't like how the A.I is programmed generally to be a complete ass and doesn't give you reasons on why its about to declare war on you when you've just killed off some of their enemies etc.
Nope, sorry, but whenever I see someone defending a bad game I can't help but think they're a marketing employee.

A feature we don't like, to be sure, but a feature all the same.
Also, you think I'm a blind fanboy and/or a marketing drone just because I like something that you don't?
