Content Editor: PC Cheats & Trainers

Starting out with a small website known as GAME NOT OVER in 1997, Chris was asked to join The Adrenaline Vault.

Lead Trainer Programmer

Mike started out writing tutorials so that others could learn how to make their own trainers and game hacks. He then went on to release several trainers for popular PC titles. His hard work and consistent eye for detail quickly caught the attention of Cheat Happens. In early 2007, Mike joined the team and has since been creating quality, custom-made trainers for the majority of PC game releases. Mike constantly strives to bring new features to his trainers, including the ability to customize hotkeys while also implementing a new tracking scheme to protect the trainers from being misused.

Markus Schulz  GERMANY
Lead Software Programmer, Assistant Trainer Programmer

Markus started with reverse engineering in 2005-2006. He moved on to game trainers at the end of 2006 which were never released to public as they were for learning purposes only. He switched to creating editors in 2009-2010 after noticing that people really like having as many options as possible in their game cheats. Markus released custom made trainers and editors for several months via CheatScapes.com and was asked to join the Cheat Happens team in October of 2012. Complementing the trainers already being produced by the CH team, Premium members now have more options than ever before with the addition of custom made game editors by Markus, aka 0x90.
