Dont' know if you ever got your game to work, but make sure on the menu screen that you pick a mode that doesnt' use the same numbers as the trainer. I had to switch from total war to campain to get mine to work.
I have tried uing most of the Empire: Total War trainers but none of them work. I go to try and start the Grand Campaign, with the trainer activated, and after about 1/4 through the loading bar the game just crashes and goes back to the windows screen. This is extremely irritating because I love the game!
Does anyone have an awnser? I'm sure other people have been having the same problem, so surely someone has come up with a fix by now!
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Probably you have a different version (STEAM might have updated the game....AGAIN!).
