und you can still do the credit-method with buying parts and Num4->Num5?
For the third time, yes. I was able to do this before and after the update.
LOL, welcome to my world
Posting steps again for those not in the know. For what it's worth I was already quite a ways in, with a stable of 60-ish cars, 2 mil in the bank, and levels 6-10 for most disciplines, so I don't think there's any truth to those saying it only works up to a certain point. It worked 2 days ago, and there has been a patch since then. Can't confirm if it still works, but I will try again once I get home. Also, when I did this I had my ethernet adapter disabled, so no internet at all, to make sure I wasn't in multiplayer. After I had the credits, I closed the trainer, enabled my internet, joined a Horizon Life session, and starter playing as normal. Went and bought ALL the houses, which ended up netting me 45 Super Wheel Spins. With all the income I got from those and from playing in the last 2 days, my credits are still above 840 million, and I've been freely buying cars from the Auto Show and Auction House, so to anyone who's worried about a ban, if you only use the credits option, I'd say you're safe.
Are you trying to add credits or set credits? If you're trying to add credits, and the value is less than what you have already, it won't change. I figured that out pretty early on. It's not adding 100,000 by default, it's setting to 100,000. So if you have a few million, it's not gonna do anything.
Try setting the value past what you have now and see how that works.
If that doesn't work, right click and run the trainer as admin, and try again.
If that doesn't work, I dunno, start grinding races as hard as you can. I'm pretty sure there was talk about the trainer credit setting not working later in the game's progression, so you might be there.
