I've been trying to get the dlc character's to run with the cheathappens launcher. NO! I have 2 options, run the game without the trainer-use the x86 or x64, whichever is working to get the dlc or Use the cheat happens EXE and get the trainer and cheats but no dlc. After a long time of trying to get dlc's and cheats, it's not happening. My first time since 2007 I couldn't get a trainer working. The shame But the game is fine with the trainer or with the dlc's-no trainer. I had to add to this thread, I felt I was owed some sastisfaction, what a ***** this game can be
I rename VanHelsing_x86 to VanHelsing_x64 and save file VanHelsing_x86...now all working))
Maybe I'm just slow or not used to using workarounds, so I couldn't figure it out at first. Perhaps it's more picky if you bought through steam and needs to be run through steam to detect the dlc you've bought? No idea, and I'm letting myself be distracted.
To elaborate on his solution, to work with steam, switch the names of the x86 and x64 around. Then run from Steam. The trainer will find the game and run as per usual. Or at least, the skills and ability points works.
