"A way to reduce the number of skill points / equipment would be good"
Both of these options exist in the trainer now. Just set the modifying value for those options to the number that you WANT to have, not to ADD. Can be 0, can be 5000, whatever you want.
Even though the skill is unlocked, have you tried setting the value to 0 in the trainer and mousing over the unlocked skill and activating the option like you originally did, close and re-open skills to see if it changed? Even though you have the skill unlocked the trainer may still be able to detect what resource WAS required for that skill. LMK if that works or not and then I will tell Cal.
Yes I tried that, I even tried mousing over the supply numbers at the top of the skill page "J". I think its not the fact that the skill is unlocked its if you have maxed out all the skills to that resource.
Sorry to be a pain.
Seems to be no fix for this unfortunately as the only way Cal can grab the value in memory is by mousing over what was needed. Sorry. It should work fine on a new character so you can enter just the amount you want.
