I have found a trick, now since the trainer don't work on the new 22.214.171.124 version.
Go to: (E: is my drive, most likely it's C: on the most computers) E:\Steam\SteamApps\common\sid meier's civilization v\Assets\Gameplay\XML\Units
Open the file: CIV5Units.xml and find UNITCLASS_MERCHANT
Change: "[Cost]-1[Cost]" to "[Cost]50[Cost]" Change: "[Moves]2[Moves]" to "[Moves]70[Moves]" Change: "[BaseGold]350[BaseGold]" to "[BaseGold]3000000[BaseGold]"
Save the file. Start the game, load your saving. Build Great Merchant in all your cities. DO NOT PRESS NEXT TURN. Save your saving, exit the game, change the values in the same file back to the normal settings. Save the .xml file.
Then start your saving again, press next turn. And then move your great Merchants to the nearest City state, and press the "golden" button. Then you get 3.000.000 per Merchant you created and sent to a city state.
Of course, this number can be changed to what every number you need, if you want much money now since the trainer is not working.
But remember, make sure to save and not press next turn, before you exit the game, edit the .xml files back to normal, and then open the game and your saving again. Do not use the Zzzz function on units with 70 moves (or more) since it will take long time between each turn. Remember that the unit only get the number of moves the first time after you have presses next turn, so if you is located far away from a city state, increase the number of moves.
If you press next turn before you have edit the file back to normal, all other player will build great merchants and earn much money. So please save and exit the game before pressing next turn after building the units.
Next time you need more money, use the same trick.

the last trainer was made on 10/5... The trainer needs to be updated for the one released a day or so ago.. Trainers will crash if you don't have the right version, the version # is in game on the main menu... Please take note of both the trainer # and the main menu # before activating trainers... Common sense, right????
I can play this game without a trainer, I just need a mod map, I won't get any steam achev. but I'm ok with that.. I just really need $$$$ in game, I hardly use the other commands, I did use the speed up research properly as was outlined in the read.me file.... I can go a week w/o a trainer... Maybe more if I don't play Civ 5 as much..
