ONE AND ONLY
I have noticed that the latest trainers appear to run a tad different than the old ones. Also this makes setting sound levels rather annoying as I need to keep lowering the volume down every time I use the latest batch of trainers. As the old one always kept their level once set. I also noticed the temp file name seems to change to on every use. Any reason as to why? Just curious.

It's a new template that has several changes for several reasons. In the settings tab is an option to mute the trainer sounds.

While I imagine it has to do with security reasons, there is one issue when you change the temp name all the time, by doing that I personally have to keep allowing it to run in my AV and the way mine works is it'll ask me if I wanna allow it when it runs and I say yes then it adds it to a list and if I have to do this everytime the list of allowed files becomes endlessly long with files that doesn't even exist anymore so if you can please look into removing the digits on the tmp file so that it remains the same name at least.

I fixed this by adding the temp file location to excluded list in my AV, this solves the issue of the changing file names, as the whole directory has been excluded from the AV SW.

As they use a seperate directory for these files i dont see an issue with this option.

eg. file directory is like this.

c:\users\name\CheatHappens\Work

SInce i added this directory to my excluded list i have not had a single false alarm from my AV

Thank you for sharing this. As current trainers create a folder for themselves and don't need to write into the Windows temp folder anymore the risk of any kind of virus/malware infection is reduced for those who set up an exception rule for the whole Win temp folder.

In the previous template, some AVs had just automatically blacklisted the dll file in the Windows temp folder based on its name, never even scanning it. Some AVs would let you whitelist this single file by name while others did a crc check on the file and even if the name matched, it wasn't whitelisted as physically it wasn't the same file. This led to people whitelisting the entire windows temp folder which left them open to other threats. So, that is why we changed it to a different filename each time and placed it in a separate folder not affecting other windows programs or potential threats.

Figured as much, however I did not know where it was placed as my AV only tells me the file name unless I look for the path which I rarely do, but since it makes a new directory that simplify things
