Trainer works great but the game seems to crash on occasion, need to test further to see if I can find which option causes this or if it's unrelated.
EDIT: Option #5 or option #6, just need to find whichever one of those that causes it. (Can play for a while but then the game crashes, turning those two off made things fully stable so now it's down to finding which of those causes this.)
Ok all fixed. Problem was after install of game, reboot computer. Steam then did a very quick install of either a micro patch or reinstall of a dodgy file. Either way it was done in less than 10secs. (1sec for teh DL and 9secs for going through the install procedure again).
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.
