RETAIL means you bought a game from a store, where you get physical media (i.e. boxed).

Steam/D2D means a digital download of the game. In this case either from Steam or Direct2Drive.

Try using the Origins one Retail version and the one for Awakening in Steam version, though it's tricky, because I used the same trainer (Origins) for both Origins and Awakening.

Awakening doesn't change the game exe file. So retail is the one you want.

D2D is an acronym of direct-to-drive, so STEAM is actually a form of D2D.

And yes, many retail games, especially those games developed by Valve come with STEAM (Like Left 4 Dead, Orange Box, Just Cause 2, etc). But STEAM supplies games via the internet at most, which is D2D.

And there are other forms of D2D too, but they are just providers. So I hope this answers your question.

I noticed onces I downloaded both dao Retail trainer and daa Steam Trainer once they unziped on your computer you can't tell which is what so I'll just stick with the dao Retail trainer.

Thanks for all your helps
