Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries
I can't quite get the trainer to (F1) Activate and I'm not sure why. So this is what I've done for the game:
1 - Install Mercs (Via the CD's)
2 - Install PR1 (5.12 megs)
3 - Install PR1 to 3.02a (284 megs)
4 - Install 3.02a to 3.02b (13.7 megs)
5 - Double click mekmatch.reg (in folder) to be able to connect online.
6 - copy the revised shellmt.dll (to folder) to get the game to run correctly.
When I start the game and the trainer.. in game I press F1 and nothing occurs (I've made sure the f1 button can be activated). To further check.. opening then trainer first and clicking F1, "Trainer cannot find game" sounds, which is what it should do. Then opening the game after.. no activation and the line at the bottom of the trainer continues to say "Hit F1 to activate trainer.. etc".
On installing just mercs without the patches.. and using the trainer then, on pressing F1, the trainer says "Trainer Activated" and then quickly afterwards "Deactivated", which is what you would expect.
Has anyone experienced this issue and or knows how to fix it?

Thanks Guys, Any help would be appreciated.
With both the trainer and game, make sure you run in administrator mode.
The specific address to download the file is www.mektek.net/mekpak/shellmt.dll
