PWizard, I completely agree with you. I've been an unlimited member for years and you never asked me for another penny beyond the original fee. You guys keep up the great work, it is appreciated. Donation sent. I also wouldn't ***** and complain if you asked me to join a higher level of membership to keep this site financially viable.
I'm coming back to BL2 after playing Skyrim for a long time - I have updated my trainer to the latest version and of course Steam has updated itself and BL2 to the current version, and the trainer causes the game to crash. I start the trainer as admin, but the shortcut I have on the desktop won't allow me to start the game as admin. All security has been disabled. BTW, this used to work perfectly, and I have been an unlimited member for a long time - this is the first time I have experienced this kind of intractable problem. I hope you guys can enlighten me as to why this is not working any more. I've tried the trainer in the usual spot (my downloads folder in my games folder - they have always worked before) and in the steam games folder in BL2 folder. I thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
Or just disable UAC and make sure your firewall isn't blocking the trainer if you're not running it in manual mode. For instance I had some issues with KIS 2014 where the trainer wouldn't work because I had to choose "Trust this application" after I first launched the trainer but then I had to choose "Allow and add to exclusions" after I pressed F1 or one of the hotkeys. To do the second part I had to Alt-Tab out of the game because if you don't choose an action (again, I run my AV/Firewall in manual mode) it automatically blocks the trainer, and sometimes the Kaspersky pop-up doesn't show, depending on whether I'm running the game in full screen or windowed borderless.
To disable UAC follow these steps:
1) Press the start button. 2) Type "UAC" and click on "Change User Account Control settings". 3) Move the slider to "Never Notify". 4) Click OK and reboot your computer.
Even if this doesn't help you with your problem, you should still disable UAC, but only if you are an advanced PC user. This is like the first thing I do after a fresh OS reinstall.
