I personally don't have this issue with the steam version. The trainer being in the same location is not necessary. Sorry I couldn't be much help. I know from past experience that the trainers don't work sometimes for Uplay activated games but do on steam versions.
I have the steam verson and it dos not work for me eather why?
ok couple things..
1) we OWN this on steam, and the trainer was CREATED using the STEAM VERSION. 2) keep in mind the STEAM version still launches UPLAY 3) I checked BOTH dx9 and dx11 versions after FRESH 18GB INSTALL of the game and the trainers match up.
I have no idea why people are having problems, the trainers are current
