Yes, all you need is the code that's generated on that computer. You can get the key from any computer.
I'm glad that I've upgraded to lifetime member then.
At least with your new scheme I can be sure I've some reliable trainers first before seeing them appear at other sites.
You have to understand he was angry he is a paid member and he feels let down. I don't agree with him about hacking the copy protection and spreading the trainers around the net. How ever i don't think he meant it. I think it was more of him being angry more than anything else.
I was also angry about the activations how ever i had calm down before posting my thoughts on the issue.

I don't meant to get on a soapbox here, I just think that some members may underestimate all the work that goes into providing the service that we do. Providing this service takes 4 dedicated individuals working literally around the clock to keep up with all of the new releases, patches and email/forum support requests. Seeing our work uploaded in batches to torrent sites the day that we post it is nothing more than a kick in the face to us and also to our members that choose to support our work and gain the opportunity to have first shot at using the trainers that we create.
I truly feel like we've tried to accomodate as many different people as possible. We have our first run trainers which are available to our subscribers. We then release 99% of those trainers within 4-6 weeks to the public for FREE. Could you imagine if iTunes released all of the music for free once it had been available for purchase for 4 weeks? or if Microsoft and the game publishers gave away free copies of Windows and games after a few weeks?
I guess that's what really bothers us the most is that some people can't grant us a small window of time to try and collect enough funds to keep the site going and the programming going, they must upload our work to torrent sites even though they will be publicly available in a few weeks. We don't have to release anything to the public and that may be a road we one day have to head down if our current measures fail to work.
Regarding the new protection, it really should not be made into a big deal. We've gone out of our way to make it as transparent an unobtrusive as possible. If you have Internet, just let it do it's check and go on. It's not sending any info to us so there should be no privacy concerns. Also, since so many people on the internet seem to have no internet service, we've also provided an easy way to generate an offline key for use on those computers. Yes, it will take a couple mins of your time, but you only have to do it once per computer. The keyfile that's generated will work with any and all trainers as long as it's in the same folder.
Lastly, I just want to thank all of our members for (mostly) standing by us during this transition and understanding that we're merely trying to protect our hard work and the work that you guys pay for.
All we want to do is continue making quality trainers for as many games as possible.
now i have a question i havent seen answered yet..
say i get a membership and down load the offline auth check and place the file i na folder where all the trainers go..now if i reformat will i have to ge ta new auth code for offline?
if i change software such as my video card blew i replace will i have to get another auth offline suth code?
further more even though im a free member i have no problems waiting for the trainers to go public as i like to play through the game with out cheats first then replay with the cheats to explore more with out hassles..i love all your work and all your trainers have worked flawless for me since i started useing them about 2 years ago.. plz keep up the good work..
thank you from a loyal free user
When I discovered that you'd implemented your authentication policy, I thought that the twenty dollars I'd paid you previously to become a lifetime member would be all for naught now, but you've created a way to solve that and I thank you.
It will involve me going home with the file, running it on my computer, taking down a key, and bringing it back to work to get another key generated by your website, but I am cool with that, don't think it's that arduous, and am charmed that you have tried to find a way to accomodate those who have non-traditional access to internet.
As someone who has two jobs, volunteers, and a partner, who does not have much time for "beating" games, I appreciate all the work you've done to make our gaming lives a little easier.
cheers and thanks.

Moreover, if you don't like what CH has done you're perfectly free to compete. Not that many people can. I mean, maybe one in ten million people or more has the ability, desire, and drive to actually hack into a game's functions for the sole purpose of making the game easier to play. If someone feels like doing that for free, more power to them.
It isn't as easy as it used to be to hack games. I had an Action Replay with altered firmware to hack codes for my old PS1, and that was just a matter of searching out the right values in memory. Used to be that most games didn't create dynamic data so much as run procedurally. These days that just plain doesn't work. Games these days create dynamic objects which aren't necessarily in any specific memory location. You have to actually alter the base function after tracking it down with a debugger in order to hack properly, and unless you have a solid background in assembler code and also have the patience to page through mountains of it in order to find the right one, determine its outputs, hook them, and replace them you can't do anything.
So yeah, best of luck to you budding trainer makers. I'd recommend getting a job at CH so you can actually make a living from your valuable skills.
