I had this issue and was not able to get it to work. But! The other option which deals with the loot you pick up should work. Go out kick some but and use option 5. That worked for me and I aint had to use any gold cheat since then.
yup, that seems to have done the trick
Unfortunately from what I know they are done taking requests. However for collected shards you can use the cheat engine table to edit your shards to I believe 118(total shards you can find) which allows you to open all the doors. (Do 130 to be safe or google the number). Also for travelling around a lot of us just use the no cooldown mash fade walk with a mage trick...
Yes there is no more requests being taken to add new options into the trainer.
