Thank you for your response!

Just tried it and it gives a screen as well but now it asks me to go online to activate the game.

And when you go online it asks for the game key as i have mentioned in my previous post. What could be the cause of this?

Thank you for taking the time to look into this.

No clue. No one else has reported it.

Hey, I'm experiencing an issue.

I open the trainer, allocate the appropriate steam .exe to it (the version I have), confirm that I wish to launch it, but when I reach the main menu and press F1, I hear 'trainer cannot find game' regardless of what I try.

Any help would be nice.

Please disable/uninstall all antivirus, firewall and other security software including browser addons and extensions. Right click "Run as Administrator" on trainer and game. Please note that some security products may still block access to trainer injection even when disabled and must be completely uninstalled. If this is the case, please contact the product vendor for instruction on the proper way to prevent the trainers from being blocked by their software or find a better alternative.

Right click as admin on trainer. Point it your WatchDogs2.exe file. When splashscreen appears, click on Steam to see the hidden window and press yes. Game will continue to load. Once you get to the actual main menu, alt tab to trainer and press F1 to activate. Then alt tab to game and use options.

 

If it's not working then something is blocking it.

Thanks for the help, but I've encountered something. I allocate the exe, and the game begins the launching process. However, the game does not load, not even to the splashscreen. After a while the little icon that comes up is gone.

Try adding the command line parameter directly to the steam shortcut for the game and then launch the game normally and see if the game runs and gives the appropriate EAC has been disabled message. If so, then just alt tab out and run the trainer, hit cancel when asked for the WatchDogs2.exe and use the trainer normally.

EDIT:

Nevermind, a simple PC restart fixed the failure to launch.

In Watch Dogs 2, Ubisoft implemented what is called "Easy Anti Cheat" which is software designed to prevent cheating in multiplayer games. We applaud them for that. However, they also enabled it (on purpose or by oversight we don't know) in the offline single player story mode as well. This made it just about impossible to try and hack the game and/or make any kind of trainer for it. We looked at it for many hours with no luck on how to get around it without having to "crack" it or the game which we would never do.

Fortunately, today, one of our loyal Cheat Happens members named "dr8breed" provided us with a way to deactivate Easy Anti Cheat in the offline mode, and it couldn't have been easier.

All you have to do is add the -eac_launcher command line parameter to your WatchDogs2.exe shortcut and when you run it, EAC is disabled, you get a window letting you know that it is disabled along with online play. Now you can easily use our trainer (Link), our free CoSMOS gamehacking tool (Link) or any other tool to modify the game and play it the way you want to play it.

Conversations with Ubisoft support, which we have transcripts of, state that they do not condone cheating of any kind, but they elude that there will be no repercussions (such as being banned from the game) for doing so in single player offline mode only. Of course, that doesn't mean that it won't happen, that's just what we were told. As always, with any cheat in a game that has both a single and multiplayer component, especially those that allow seamless transition, you must use it at your own risk.

Here is a screenshot showing how to add the command-line shortcut to your game:

Here is an image of what you will see when it is properly disabled:

Please note that our trainer will do this for you by you simply selecting where you have the game installed.

To other trainer makers and websites: We could have chosen to keep this information a secret for our own benefit, but we chose to release it to the public so that everyone can have a chance to cheat the game in their own way. If you decide to incorporate it into a trainer of your own, please just give us the respect of mentioning where you found the solution and especially give credit to "dr8breed" for providing it.

Thanks and happy cheating!

PS - HERE IS A SHORT VIDEO DEMONSTRATING THAT THE TRAINER IS REAL AND WORKS FINE IN OFFLINE MODE:
