if you are using the arrow keys, then that is the problem. the trainer uses the arrow keys to create ghost mode.
what? just press F1 while in the game it still works..
Thanks for the heads up with the known bug, I wasn't getting the problem without the trainer, or I wouldn't have posted it here, I guess I was getting "lucky". I did search a few other forums before posting here, but all I saw was posts about the controls for drivebys or bex64 crashes with the launcher. The forums are moving so fast it is possible they got buried quick.
