Recently I downloaded the ME2 trainer for my Renegade playthrough. Bless you awesome people for allowing me to be a total and utter ass without having to worry I get shot in the face.
I made use of the trainer a few times, and even successfully customized it. But now it stopped working. That is, the trainer runs, but it crashes upon activation: - Pressing F1 will freeze up the trainer - CPU cycles will be devoured - "ON ON ON OFF OFF OFF AC AC ON ON OFF AC AC" etc.
So I removed CH-Trainer-Keys.dat. It worked. The trainer didn't crash anymore, but it uses the default numpad keys. So I remade the CH-Trainer-Keys.dat using the app from your site. I started the trainer, which found the .dat file, and once more the trainer crashed upon pressing F1.
The only significant thing that has changed were the following windows updates:
1. There have been no changes in my AV/Firewall software since when it worked. 2. Other CH trainers work fine. 3. CustomTrainer activation through F1 started my audio codec six times. Switching to another audio codec didn't help. The "Game Not Found" sound (due to not having started ME2) works fine on the customized trainer.
Is it possible the customized trainer conflicts with the game itself because of aforementioned Windows Updates?
When it did work did you use the original assigned keys. When I successfully used it, I had already customized the trainer. The vanilla trainer would work, so sans the keys, but my numpad isn't in very good shape right now.
Have you added the trainer and customizer to your AV's exclusion settings? Yes. I have also completely disabled both the firewall and the anti-virus, and even shut down the services.
