Total War: Rome 2
Maybe this helps.
use the trainer to highlight and modify the research options you want to affect..
save your game.
close the game. shut off the trainer.
now re-run the game and do not use the trainer and go 3-4 turns and see if those research items unlock without crashes now that they have already been manipulated.
if so, then it's possible that the devs have a game .exe scanner working in some cases.. I have not detected it. if that is the case, then direct your anger to the developers who once again put a anti-cheat scanner into their product. it's not our place to be cracking games here and ripping out the protections..
I eagerly await your test..

Well, the game thinks it's still on.

oh.. so the game coding itself doesn't like that you are unlocking research items way in advance.. even when the trainer isn't running.. I see..

if I thought this would help I would do it. there seems to be a lot of 'unchecked' bugs in the game.. i.e., the developers didn't expect items to be used like they are, or people to be leveling up in advance, research items unlocking early, etc.
the jury is still out if there is anti-cheat .exe scanner..
