I still can never get this game to work on either a Win7 x64 or Win8 x64 despite using the methods listed in this thread. I just really get ****ed off. Will be asking for a refund (this is also my FIRST time seeking refund from Steam) thru Paypal and go and get myself a retail copy.
Wont matter games REQUIRES steam (unless you do it warez style).
Make sure game version matches trainer version. Game received two patches yesterday. Disable/uninstall all AV, firewall and other security software. Right click run as admin on trainer. If game crashes with specific options in a specific location then send savegame with easily repeatable instructions.
Second one will end up with game retired and no more trainers.
as the man says
its your game version you are running an updated version of the games .exe file
the guys will update soon be patient lol
There has been no change to the exe at all. Versions match everything. It was only that one time. But I do not really use Grenades. Since the shot gum seems to be awesome OP. Still a sweet trainer tho thanks CHT.
There were some stuff when the game first unlocked but that mostly affected the first few regions where it was released.
Anyway there's a actual update out now:
General user interface improvements. Various performance improvements. Fixed issue where a door may not function properly if a Xeno was killed while opening it. Addressed issue where players could become stuck in a close encounter after killing a Lurker that had pounced them. Fixed collision issue where bullets would not pass through certain open doorways. Fixed an issue related to clients incorrectly interrupting Xeno melee encounters. Addressed an issue where doors would sometimes not open properly. Addressed an exploit where players could melee while throwing a grenade or placing a claymore. Fixed some collision detection issues that could result from a close encounter. Prevented campaign pop-ups from appearing outside of campaign.
Fixed an issue that could prevent NPCs from getting on the elevator in the Sulaco. NPCs no longer attempt to open doors while being welded. Fixed issue where Raven could sometimes pass through welded door. Implementing a message to warn players that campaign progress will be overwritten if they try to start an offline campaign game from within the co-op campaign UI. Adjusted the distance between players before they're warped to the location of furthest player in co-op. Fixed issue where torch would sometimes appear incorrectly to co-op clients. Fixed issue where difficulty could sometimes become stuck incorrectly after switching modes. Fixed issue where co-op player would not recover properly after being saved from a close encounter. Fixed issue where Russian players could not drop into a co-op match in some missions. Updated late-game close encounter moment to disable player input, which could cause them to become stuck. Splitscreen: Weapon Radial menu no longer appears for other players when the pause menu is opened. (PS3/Xbox 360 only) Splitscreen: Fixed issue where if the Game Menu is opened while accessing the Weapon Radial, it stays up on does not function properly. (PS3/Xbox 360 only)
Resolved issue where campaign Motion Tracker could incorrectly in multiplayer loadouts. Fixed issue where clients would sometimes be invisible after spawning in No Hope in Hadleys. Multiplayer teams are now randomized (parties excluded) if percentage difference in scores is greater than 15% 'Switch Teams' option removed from the Pause menu. Corrected issue where server and client could get out-of-sync when switching out of a power-up while firing. Fixed issue where controller would vibrate during the scores screen if Rage ability was active upon match end. Fixed issue where Cloak ability would not conceal the Lurker when walking or jogging. Corrected bug where clients appeared to spawn outside of world before match start. Removed placeholder text from appearing on scoreboard in certain situations. Improved camera transition when Xeno enters a vent. Fixed issue where Xenomorph HUD could sometimes appear in the wrong color. Fixed issue with Spitter acid sometimes preventing players from deploying a Sentry Turret for a short while. Spitter's "Acid Spray" now originates from the mouth. Escape: Fixed issue where Xenos could spawn in unplayable space. Escape: Fixed issue where Xeno players could lose functionality if warped to next area while in a vent. Escape: Addressed issues where players would spawn with no weapon if they were the last Marine to die in Escape. Escape: Fixed issue where Cat-Like Reflexes ability would not properly complete in an Escape match. Escape: Improved timing and placement of warp locations in Emergency Evac map.
I couldn't get it to patch properly so I had to re-validate the game files via Steam and that updated the game exe and some other files.
EDIT: Strange, the build version number is identical, maybe the trainer is still compatible but then why would the exe update, odd.

EDIT: Trainer is still compatible, makes me wonder if this was what caused that option to crash the game, if so it should work fine now. (But with grenade launchers available on most weapons that option isn't all too important if it makes the trainer and game fully stable when disabled, still useful to have of course.)
