I'll try to be concise because this is an issue that's been brought to the attention of the folks at CH before, just not recently. The game crashes after proceeding from the title into the first level load whenever I use either of the Mega trainers (DX9 with 1.1 patch or DX10). I worked through the issue sheet before trying to contact you with this problem but I can't help but wonder if the trainer simply needs updating. I figured with the holiday rush behind us I might have better luck getting that to happen. On a similar but side note I've never used any trainer but those official ones provided by CH so the possibility that I got a corrupted trainer is out (as you've mentioned in a previous post).
I appreciate everything you do over at CH headquarters as you make my PC gaming experiences so much more entertaining and worthwhile. I realize that this is a very old game in the gaming-verse but I never played it and thought it would be a good time with the lull between mega launches and seeing as how the trainer isn't retired figured, 'why not?' I look forward to any assistance you can lend.
