Do you agree with how greedy they are at this site?
Its not that hard to make game trainers.
I do it all the time
It's never been a hassle
But they charge $6+ for a trainer...
I'de pay maybe $3 for a good trainer to a big game
And no way in hell am I paying $25 for a year of trainers
Its not worth it
Trainers are so you can have some fun messing with the game after you've beaten it
And what is with you having to pay to be able to track your favorite games and make your own "printbook"
I understand why you charge for the trainers, but those features on this site shouldn't cost money
The people who are going to be using your trainers are most likely going to be kids 13-17
Why make it hard on them by having them beg their parents to spend more money on cheats for a game they probably never wanted them to play in the first place?
I'm not saying make the trainers free, I'm saying cut the cost on them altogether or charge trainers based on the work involved/how big the game is
I spent 3 hours searching for a trainer for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky that I didn't have to pay for and got nothing
I can't patch my game up for reasons that cannot be stated here, and the only trainer I could find was yours
An interesting fact, it costs the Cheathappens team about $500 to create a trainer for a game. They have to buy the game, take time out of their own lives to install it, sift through the code, figure what to change and how to change it without making your computer explode, bypass game security, and keep it updated. And they do this for dozens and dozens of games. All the time.

No I don't. If you do not have the patience to write a guide and you don't feel like taking part of the working world, you have no sympathy from me.
I don't think you are paying for trainers specifically anyway... You are paying for the work they do.
Plus, I like not having to search 3 hours for a trainer only to not find one or find one that does not work.
With that logic you can also say that farmers are greedy. And car manufactures are greedy. I mean...can't people just grow their own food and make their own cars?! Damn! Greedy people! They don't need MONEY for their WORK.
Secondly, you are not paying for those other features. They are added bonuses for your contribution whether that contribution be in the form of currency or a guide for a game.

Not hard huh?
I like to see you try Code Shifting.
You do know what that is, because you dont think its hard :P
But I doubt we will see you come back.
But hey you think you know what to do, why not start your own CheatHappens with a different name of course. Yes?
Now if you look at things like that it turns out that the Persian silk merchants were also greedy because they charged four times more than the silk in Asia. But if you look at it from their aspect what do they do and what do they risk? They buy the goods in Asia, transport them through lands crawling with robbers and thieves and then get the goods to the western people. Now you can call them greedy, but the risk and cost they have to pay to bring those products to the westerners far surpass the benefits as they were risking their own lives and money to bring the products.
The situation here is similar, only there is no "Asia" to import the goods from. Instead Cheathappens produces it's own product, it doesn't steal or exploit from anyone, even though some might claim that. Since they basically control the market for trainers they can set their own prices because of no competition. Merchants and traders do that all of the time and it's totally legit. It's all supply, demand and competition. Since they have a high demand, they have to supply in which they have to put in their own money into it and because of no competition they needn't change anything in the prices of membership and can freely set their own prices.
They don't force you to play a game with a trainer, if you think that trainers should be used after the completion then why do you want the trainer anyway?
