I was launching HG:L from the "launcher.exe" file in the main HG directory. To get the trainer to work, I needed to launch from the "\Hellgate London\SP_x86\hellgate_sp_dx10_x86.exe" file (since I use DX10).
Once I did that, I heard "ACTIVATED" at the menu and trainer worked great.
Trainer works perfectly for me as per following the readme notes - and my game has yet to crash because of the trainer.
The "bug" I'm referring to is weird - no matter how far I play into the game at a sitting - whenever I quite I'm fine. But when I restart the game and my character(s) - I end up back starting out having to rescue Murmur in Russell Square, and at a much lower level with almost all of the gear I had acquired gone - and this happens every time since I patched the game to version 220.127.116.1115.
I had created two new characters after patching & installing the correct trainer. One is (currently) a level 9 Summoner, one a level 8 Engineer - and each time I start up the game, I'm stuck back at the very beginning of the game and NOT where I should be in game.
Any ideas on what may be causing this or - better yet - how I can get around having to start all over each & every time??
maybe its a problem with the patch or something.
try uninstalling the game, then reinstall it and update it to the current version without starting it.
you should backup your characters first, which are found in my "documents/my games/hellgate", and then copy them back, when you are done installing and stuff.
or try asking the customer service. =)
Actually, the problem solved itself in an equally weird way!!!
I actually deleted all of my characters and restarted with a fresh character. Played with the trainer annd new character up to my finishing the Totenham Station quests - game crashed right in the middle of returning through the portal back to Holborn Station.
When I rebooted, and loaded up my character - the character loaded up properly with all the level, points, equipment, etc. intact & was inside of Holborn Station with the Totenham quests complete
So I'm not sure whether or not I did something, or whether the crash actually fixed something - but the trainer is working as advertised for me now!! Go figure!!
