I have read around, and I had a looksies at Cal's trainer, I believe Cal your Squad Points and 1 hit kill options causes certain area's to cause CTD's, Only from what ive learned from others.

If people can try to disable both options 3 and 6 before leaving and entering area's? See if that makes a difference.

Its possible other options may cause CTD's in other area's too.

This game as Cal said is a very difficult one to do, and Cal has done amazing to have done what he has. Hell even h4x0r cant replicate a trainer ;~)

I have also noticed occasional crashes with the trainer during area transitions. However it seems random for me, sometimes the game with run for an hour before a crash sometimes 4 or 5 hours. Personally I have not found it to be an issue as every time it has crashed I have gone back in to find my autosave had kicked in (and completed) just prior to the crash, which raises the question of whether the Autosave could somehow have a part in this or have I just been lucky so far?

Same crashes when every I push f1. I downloaded the game from D2D. I even loaded my m1 save then save the game. Then restated the game before I even try to use the trainer. But yes crashes every time.

Get the no cd exe to get this trainer to work, if you are having the same problem as I was.

A trainer is made for a specific exe version (like 1.0) and the retail exe differs from the Steam/D2D exe since the retail exe needs the DVD while the Steam/D2D does not. That's also why there needs to be a new trainer for every patch, because it replaces the exe.

I hope this answers some of the questions people have.

When I installed the game, it worked perfectly, but as soon as I got the trainer and put it into the ME2 directory, I'm suddenly getting an error saying "The game cannot launch due to a misconfiguration. Please reinstall and try again." I've tried several reinstalls, but nothing is working. Has anyone else experienced this error? I've already put a ticket in on the Bioware site, but I figured I'd ask around since it wasn't until I tried using the trainer, but I can't even start the game even when not using the trainer.

our trainer does NOTHING to the game, does not modify your game files in any way, and in fact can be run from any location on any drive.

it looks for the process:

MassEffect2.exe

running in memory, injects a .dll into the game space and modifies the game code in memory (not on your hard disk) temporarily once the trainer activates.

there is no way that this trainer would cause your game to have misconfiguration or some such thing.

some people complaining about CTD after playing the game for 4 to 5 hours, we have had nearly 15000 downloads of our trainer now. if there was major instability we would know about it. i have also personally used the trainer for about 20 levels with no problems.

i appreciate the feedback but i have no suggestions for you, other than if you are using 'scene' version of the game, memory leaks are possible, if you have modified your files to try and 'hack' the game, then problems are possible, if you have imported a me1 character, i think that problems are definitely possible and if you are playing with the trainer on for 5 hours that's pretty damn stable.

the trainer is doing things to the game that weren't intended. i have no idea what the developers have scripted or what not. so it's always possible that something gets written to in memory that caused CTD by trainer in some unusual or rare occurences in the game. there's not much i can do about it unless there is a repeatable problem that is easy to replicate and there is a savegame and the problem is actually something that would occur in the game under normal circumstances without modified and/or 'altered' files.

i hope this clears things up-

regarding one-hit-kills, this is a beta option and as such i cannot possibly test each and every creature or item that flows through that area of code. it seemed stable for me for level after level so i think it is a useful option and in many levels it works on EVERYTHING you shoot and kills them with one shot. the max squad points is only activated when you LEAVE the squad screen or swap characters. i supposed that small function could be called for some other reason (i have no idea why it would since it is writing squad points) but the simpest solution is to give all the characters 99 points then turn it off. i have no idea if these suggestions will help you. perhaps there is a better way to do these options than what i came up with, but after many hours and alot of reversing this is the solution(s) i arrived at.

best,
Cal



also please note that D2D and STEAM required a different trainer from the retail boxed trainer, which we have now posted-

Didn't mean to get you riled up Cal, but I was just stating what had happened when it did. It took me about 4-5 uninstall/reinstall cycles but I finally got it working. Not sure exactly what it was, but the game's running fine with the trainer now and I'm not getting the stupid misconfiguration error message when I try to start the game. Not really sure what got screwed up during the installation since I never got an error or any kind while I installed the game. All Bioware said to my ticket was that it was possible that one of the files from D2D wasn't getting installed correctly and I'd have to keep reinstalling till it did. That or redownload the entire game from D2D. Anyway, the trainer is great and thanks for the work you guys do. You're one of the few sites where I truly believe it's worth the unlimited membership. Thanks again!
