My first question is, are we allowed to request retired games that aren't on that list?
My second question is, I've come across the odd trainer that just doesn't work for anyone (based on posts it looks like it never worked). Should these go on the request list, or is there another way to raise their profile (either to get the game retired, get an update, etc.)?
Third question is how are the credit values determined? iBomber defense is 300 credits ($65 - game costs $2-$5), whereas Sword of the Stars 2 is 1000 credits ($150 and I don't see the game on Steam). I'm guessing that game price isn't a direct correlation, but what goes in to deciding the credit price? Are we allowed to request a trainer with specific features, for example I just want extra money in a game and don't care about an inventory editor. Extra money is "easy" to do whereas an inventory editor is "difficult".
And my final question is, with older trainers, has there been any discussion about allowing the "source code" (for lack of a better term) to be released? I'm playing a game that's 5 years old, the trainer has been retired for a while and there's been a patch or two which has made the trainer break. I don't have any expectation that the trainer should be updated, however I might like to try and get it working myself and share those results.
That should answer 1 or 2 of your questions. Which btw is at the top of the new request page.

If you have paid attention while talks with the CHUsers where done on the forum! You will have read why. Firstly a do it simple.
Source code. No I do not see them releasing there work! You want to make a trainer you can read the tutorials that are on the site.
Credit values. Are all about how the game developer has made games in the past. Difficulty to train, how the company patches previous games and popularty in the game series. As trainers have been made after being requested in the past and only a few people have used it.... Compared to how many hours it costs to make and update it is not worth the few downloads. So basicly Time/difficulty/Popularity.
To the trainers that have not worked completly.... Which I find rather odd. If they have been updated and there is no updated trainer you can put a request form in. If its not been retired.
Certain games that have been retired may also show up here for un-retirement consideration.
So put a form in and see what happens.
What's obvious to you is not necessarily obvious to others, Remeber not all members are active as you are.
I know, besides it was sarcasm because my first post was not rude (in my head) I was just posting what was on the page and telling him that it should answer 1 or 2 of his questions and just reminding him where it is. If I wanted to be rude I'd say: Also since you overlooked it I'll just repost it here.
But I wasn't trying to be rude.
