Not to be disrespectful of the work CH people do with the trainers, but it is a stupid idea to pay somebody just to get a trainer for a game. I've already paid $20 for Stronghold 2, I'm not going to pay another $X amount just to get a trainer. I see no logical reason why you want people to pay you for a trainer or a list of game cheats. "Support the Site" Sure. The only two sites out there that want people to pay them to get a list of cheats, a trainer, or to get rid of Ads, CheatHappens and CheatCC.
I have respect for the people that goto the trouble of making trainers and finding cheats for the games people play, but charging people to get said trainers is stupid. If a trainer has some 50+ options, then MAYBE it would be okay.
Trainers should be FREE, no matter how much "work" went into making it. People like me come to places like this to find trainers because we just don't have the knowledge to make them ourselves, and we expect to get high quality "products" for free since we already PAID for the game itself.
That being said, I hereby request that this trainer and all others like it to be made available to everyone.
My two cents, and probably my last post here, but it needed to be said.
But to answer your request, no, this trainer will not be made available to everyone and we will continue to create and release trainers for those members that do actually believe that we're working and creating a quality product worthy of their membership.
Don't get me wrong, I didn't mean any disrespect towards you or the work you do for us. I just didn't expect you to have trainers for your paying members only. I thought that the money you get from your paid members went towards the games you have to purchase to make the trainers and to keep CH up.
Maybe I was a little harsh with my first post and I apologize for that. But the way I see it, you are gamers and site owners. You have a paid membership so you can get support for the site and the money also goes towards the games and consoles needed for you to make trainers and find cheats for.
Being someone who used to make Modifications for games a lot, I understand the time and money that goes into such a project. The long hours and loss of sleep for the enjoyment of the public, etc... I just was not expecting to find a trainer for a game I enjoy playing and I go to download it and I find that it is for paying members only. Maybe I got a little upset at that fact. I apologize for that.
Maybe you could have all of your paid member only trainers and such given for free for a day or a week every so often. Just a thought really. I have several trainers you've made and they work perfectly and I love them, that's why I keep coming back here. I know your stuff is high quality and it actually WORKS. CH is one of the few places that I trust to have top notch trainers and lists of working cheats for the games I play.
People like myself, that find themselves with little or no money to support the work people like you do, get a little annoyed by the fact that there are some awesome trainers that we have to pay to get. Sure, maybe my logic is flawed, but I thought the money that your fine paying members give you went towards the site and getting the games you need in order to make trainers in the first place.

We try our best to balance our content between both our free and paying mmebers, that's why we release 99.9% of our content to the public after an initial waiting period. However, there are some trainers that take longer or are for older games and are special requests (like this one) that we reserve for our paying members only. It's a value added part of our membership.
When the site first started out our membership was about paying for the games and paying for the site. However, over time it's taken more and more time and work to keep the site constantly updated, keep up with all of the new games and patches coming out and then support our growing number of subscribers. You should see the amount of email we get each day with questions regarding trainers and such and each of them are answered personally. This has truly become a full time job for three of us and so part of the income we make from subscriptions goes towards supporting ourselves and our families. Otherwise we wouldn't have near enough time to put into the site and updates would be sporadic and support would be non-existant.
Anyway, I appreciate your comments and I hope you'll continue to visit the site (member or not).
Maybe one day (soon maybe?) you could set this trainer for the public for an hour or day...
