the steam achievement is easier to unlock with trainer. rather take 10hr to unlock, it only take 40mins..
so I presume the reason was totally base on a small group of people who feel unfairly treated, only because they do not know where to fine the cheat/trainer...
many of my friend still don't no what trainer is,
sadly to say this, they are one of the people who doesn't like cheat. but never test the POWER OF TRAINER
read back about all the question you ask, Caliber already answer all of those...
I hope this help
as I already wrote:
I think steam might want to reconsider what ITS position is on this. hooking into the user's windows api files (like kernel32.dll in this instance) is borderline viral and/or rootkit activity.. blizzard got into trouble changing users windows files and monitoring users files running in memory and the like.
this steam compatibility tool doesn't do anything except reset the windows api that STEAM itself hooked. no steam code is changed with ANY of our trainers or this tool.
our trainers manipulate the game code itself and nothing more.
I think steam is messing around with something here that might get them into trouble..
Absolutely ridiculous. Thank you guys for coming up with a fix. I hope it doesn't do anything to our accounts, this is the first time since using Steam a long time ago that I've felt they are doing something really, pathetically wrong.
Anybody know if this is a VAC thing, if it affects VAC status? I'm just totally gobsmacked that they'd do this across the board, what is wrong with them?
Agree with Caliber - this is pretty much just like Blizzard's old basically malware activity and is a horrible idea on their part. They shouldn't have this level of access to the user account. If the user account is elevated (as it has to be with this wrapper now) that creates an exploitable vulnerability. Just idiocy on their part, pure idiocy. Shockingly stupid. For no reason at all.
once a business becomes a monopoly, you start seeing the greed and the monster coming out... instead of them serving your needs, you begin to have to play things their way.. not a good feeling.. where are you going to buy your pc games from at this point? the stores don't sell them anymore..
my 2 cents..
