Will keep mine short and to the point,this trainer rules! When I first came here in September of 13,I had no idea what a trainer was. This may sound odd, I have been playing computer games since 1992-ish when "Alone in the Dark" was out and it took 3 hours to load all the floppy disks. Still,I never messed with a trainer before and had no understanding of them. I was, like many people, very frustrated with how Rome:Total War 2 was released. It seemed shoddy. I thus went to the web for help and saw the advert for this site. I decided to spend the Jackson and give it a try. As is to be expected, I had no idea what I was doing, and I am naturally repelled by the notion of reading instructions. This time though, I had to study up. The learning curve for these things turned out to be not bad at all, and in no time I was using it like a pro. The main thing is to always remember the golden rule: before you end your turn or go into battle,hit the F7 "trainer deactivated" button to avoid problems, do so and you should be good. And remember to deactivate any anti-virus. I have only had to lower my firewall once, so I do not think that is a big issue. Overall, a great tool and CH has me signed up for a year. Not to sound like a shill, but it is worth the money.I only wish they could lower the food/squalor costs to upgrade your city.
