Crysis 2 Discussion
Trainer Tools and Resources
the trainer worked fine with one card, but stopped as soon as i installed a second card in sli. anyone with the same problem? any solution please?
edit: it was a weird glitch of my wireless keyboard and the trainer.
while i am typing this, i sometimes hear " activated", the game running in the background. "l" for instance toggles "activated" and "deactivated"!
so, is it, sli, the trainer, my keyboard?

Faulty SLI strip?
Game doesn't support SLI/Crossfire well?
I am not physically there to inspect your hardware, and SLI software and hardware does nothing to the trainer and many people have played the game with the trainer while having SLI or Crossfired GPU's. But it has been known that the game is not great with specific SLI/Crossfire setups, you can even check the developers forum on that information.
One thing is known the trainer is NOT at fault and thats the only thing I am 100% sure of right now.
as far as i am concerned there is not much more to be said on this topic except maybe hear of other experiences. once again, i am not attacking the trainer, but nor am i defending it. that i leave to you.
I gave my answer that is 100% correct the trainer isn't at fault, you did not like that answer and didn't even bother to continue to provide more information that could facilitate myself and others to help you find out what is going on.
You are more interested in proving that somehow you are right in thinking the trainer is at fault, so wouldn't matter if you listen to anyone else say otherwise.
Nvidia had a fix for the Crysis 2 SLI issue (mostly flickering and bad blurring) so perhaps check that out.
Another option could be a problem with power, you didn't say if you added a new GPU and linked 2 cards with the SLI strip or you had both cards installed with no strip. So I have to assume it is a new GPU. So do you have a PSU with enough wattage to take both cards?
More information and less denial may help us help you find out what your problem is.
i found something else that might interest you: apparently the problem is not the me2 trainer itself, but other trainers too. and here are some facts that you need to know:
i am using a kvm switch in combination with a wireless keyoard/mouse. never had a problem with the trainers before. until now. so the combination sli- kvm switch is an interesting one.
if i hook up a usb keyboard at the same time, i can activate the trainer(s) normally. but not with the wireless keyboard. the wireless keyboard i can use only after the trainer has been activated with the wired keyboard.
as you see, the problem is quite complex, and concerns the interaction of the different elements. that is why i do not believe in pointing the finger at a single element, be it my setup or the trainers.

last update: you will be happy to learn that the problem is not confined to the trainers. apparently the F-keys do not work in windows either with the wireless combination keyboard! while the do it normally with the wired keyboard.
a last test with my other computer finally uncovered the culprit: ladies and gentlemen, it is the butler! sorry, i mean the kvm switch. they have always been known to behave erratically, so i should not be very surprised. without the switch all keys work normally and the trainer(s) is/are activated the usual way. this concludes our cession for today.

Is the KVM switch connected via the PS2 ports? If so perhaps look into updating your motherboards chipset drivers. If its USB then it shouldn't be happening since you had a USB keyboard attached with no problems.
Also you may want to check your Nvidia's control panel settings especially for the SLI settings, just to make sure they are set correctly, try default settings if you are using your own manual settings. And if you are Overclocking the GPU try putting it back to normal.
Also look into trying out Nvidia Inspector Link it is more informative than the Nvidia Control Panel and you get set things more precisely, game settings, Voltage settings etc.
EDIT: So was the KVM, maybe as I said try looking at updating your chipset on the motherboard, that may help.
Strange that by SLI'ing your cards it knocked out your KVM switch, unless they share the same IRQ.
You did uninstall your GPU drivers before installing the new GPU and SLI strip? Then reinstall them?
