The problem there is that ALL, and I mean every single one, of the trainer functions are then activated, so, for example, with Kane's wrath, my troops will shift from invincible to normal to almost-dead continuously and will basically get killed right away.
Another issue which I think is related is that I can't seem to use the trainer customizer - the character ref numbers show up in the box and change really quickly.
I've tried all the fixes suggested in the troubleshooter - palcing the trainer in the game directory, testing without av, adding to exceptions, running in compatibility mode and as admin, etc... but nothing seems to work. It's basically like the trainer acts like every key on my pc is being pressed.
However I have unplugged all controllers and disabled/killed any keyboard software while it was doing it and it kept on doing it.
