//UPDATED ON 04.11.2022
Cheat Happens started offering lifetime memberships over 15 years ago at the price of $29.95. Since that time, lifetime members have received unlimited access to everything our site has to offer. We have never asked our lifetime members for another cent to access additional trainers and even content such as CoSMOS, our mobile apps, Aurora and so much more. We have honored our promise and never waivered. This was true 15 years ago and it is still true today. WE WILL NEVER ASK OUR LIFETIME MEMBERS FOR ANYTHING MORE IN ORDER TO ACCESS ADDITIONAL TRAINERS. WHEN WE SAY LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP, WE MEAN IT.
When we first started offering lifetime memberships, the gaming landscape was completely different. There was no STEAM. no EARLY-ACCESS. no ORIGIN, no GOG, no GAMEPASS, no INDIE game scene. No digital delivery system for daily game patches. Fast forward to today where every game is released in some kind of PRE-ALPHA, ALPHA, BETA or other early access state across multiple distribution sites (such as Steam, Origin, GOG, etc) and many receive daily or even multiple daily patches. This puts a huge burden on our trainer programmers trying to keep up and continue offering the kind of timely releases that members are accustomed to.Now enter EAC (Easy-Anti-Cheat) and other anti-cheat scanning and trigger mechanisms being added to SINGLE PLAYER and even OFFLINE GAMES
. These new protections make it 100X more difficult to create a trainer versus a game without these measures. Each game and implementation of these protections is different and even get more and more difficult to work each time the game patches. We get why some game developers want to add this technology to their games. They want to protect the multiplayer component and we applaud that action, but they basically just lump the single player in with the multiplayer so gamers are unable to play the game the way they want. For many gamers that are older, disabled and simply can't dedicate 40 hours a week to grinding a game just to see the end, it's absolutely frustrating which is why we continue to do our best to legally combat these measures when possible. To date there has not been an EAC enabled game that we have not been able to train after sometimes 80+ hours of working with the game. This comes at a huge price and without our Lifetime PLUS members, we simply couldn't do it. So, unless we can continue building up our Lifetime PLUS member base, we may have to leave these games be and simply focus on non protected titles. It's just the reality. We have more games, more protections, more patches and more of EVERYTHING but programmers' time and the money they deserve to dedicate the kind of time necessary to make these trainers a reality. Here are the number of trainers we produced over the last several years

Many current lifetime members have asked over the years how they can help to support our site beyond their initial lifetime payment. This is why we started offering a Lifetime PLUS membership level.

By offering this new membership level and those that are generous enough to subscribe, it allows us to focus more on adding and updating content and fighting new mechanisms keeping gamers from fully enjoying the games they purchased. We have been doing everything we can to keep membership levels up, prices down and produce as much content as humanly possible with our limited programming team. We work every day of the year, including holidays, sometimes 16-20 hours a day to make sure that we get content out as timely as possible and answer all support requests.
We appreciate everyone that supports our site and we work extremely hard making sure that you get your money's worth. We have never, to this date, had any member tell us that they felt we don't produce enough content or provide enough support to justify their lifetime purchase. As of this writing, not a single one of our major competitors even offer a Lifetime membership plan

Every penny received will go towards the purchase of new games and to our trainer programmers. If you are not interested, that is absolutely understandable and the support you have given to us already is more than enough. This program was created at the request of the end-users wishing to help support CH beyond their one time membership purchase, not by us alone.LIFETIME PLUS SUBSCRIPTIONS MAY BE CANCELED AT ANY TIME AND IT WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON YOUR LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP. THAT IS YOURS, FOREVER.
Thanks for your time. Cheat Happens just celebrated its 21st anniversary on January 1st. We hope to continue offering the best and most updated trainers on the net for the next 20+.
