For the last 18 years we have offered monthly, yearly and LIFETIME subscriptions at the lowest possible prices based on our internal workload. Our workload over the last few years has doubled, tripled and even quadrupled as we race to make trainers for games that come out every day, then patch every other day and are available on multiple distribution platforms. More and more games are being developed and released each month by indie developers using rapid development tools. This is good news for gamers, but simply increases the number of games that we are requested to make trainers for. Coupled with increased updates and patches, this requires more man hours and purchasing of titles and DLC content than we ever could have imagined just a few years ago. For these, and additional related reasons, we have made a decision that in order to continue maintaining this ever-increasing pace and to combat the latest trend of heavy anti-cheats even for single player games, we must change our membership structure and pricing.
Beginning JANUARY 1, 2019, we will be implementing a new membership structure as follows:
SPECIAL NOTICE: THIS CHANGE ONLY AFFECTS MEMBERS THAT SIGNUP ON OR AFTER JAN 1, 2019. THIS WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON MEMBERS THAT HAVE REGISTERED BEFORE THAT DATE. NO ONE WILL LOSE THEIR MEMBERSHIP, INCLUDING LIFETIME, OR THE BENEFITS THAT CURRENTLY COME WITH IT.
First and foremost, we will NO LONGER BE OFFERING A LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP. This was a difficult decision, but we did the math and it's just not something that can sustain our growing expenses over time without eventually collapsing upon itself. We will only offer monthly and yearly subscriptions at the following prices:
$12.95/month Standard Premium (download limit of trainers for 5 games/month)
$19.95/month PRO Premium
$49.95/year Standard Premium (download limit of trainers for 10 games/month)
$89.95/year PRO Premium
In addition to these, all PRO memberships will also be eligible for a PLUS membership which will give all current PLUS benefits. This will continue to be $4.95/month or $49.95/year.
So, this will give us Monthly Standard, Monthly PRO, Monthly PRO PLUS, Yearly Standard, Yearly PRO and Yearly PRO PLUS as our new membership structure.
NEW PRICING SCHEME/BENEFITS: Link
Note that all trainers currently marked as "LIFETIME" will now require EITHER a "PRO" or "LIFETIME" membership. So yes, this means that people that signup for a $19.95/month PRO membership will be able to download trainers previously reserved for "LIFETIME ONLY".
There is one big caveat that comes with these changes. Cheat Happens will now be a "software as a service" company. This means that an ACTIVE subscription is required for downloaded trainers to work. If your membership expires for any reason, your trainers will be disabled until you re-subscribe. This is why all new subscriptions will be AUTO-RECURRING by default. We will still allow for non-recurring payments, just know that once the expiration date passes, all downloaded trainers will no longer function. Users will no longer be able to re-download trainers or updates without an ACTIVE, non-expired subscription.
Previously these were offered with a Yearly or Lifetime subscription. Now these will only be offered as an additional purchase of $19.95/5 keys. Once those 5 keys are exhausted, a new purchase of $19.95 will be required to continue using our trainers offline. Note that an active membership is required to purchase offline keys. AGAIN, MEMBERS THAT JOINED BEFORE JAN 1, 2019 will not be affected by this change and will still be able to download offline keys according to their existing membership level.
RC points, rewards, prize wheel spins, etc will still be awarded based on membership level. Our RC Store and Prize Wheel will be getting new items and will still be used as before.
We will still sell individual trainers for certain titles at $9.95/each which includes all updates for the life of the title. Trainers purchased using this method WILL NEVER be disabled. These trainers are typically for the smaller, older games.
For most, this change will be a good thing as now our LIFETIME ONLY trainers can be obtained at a much lower price. However, the active membership requirement will surely turn off some. For this reason we will continue to giveaway new LIFETIME memberships on a regular basis and will even offer it in our RC Store and on our Prize Wheel so it will still be possible to obtain. Obviously we won't please everyone with these changes and we apologize, but again, we must adapt or go extinct and I don't think anyone wants to see that happen.
If anyone has any questions, please post them here and I will do my best to address them. This is just one part of much bigger changes to come with our new site re-design, new trainer template, new CoSMOS and Trainer Manager apps and more to be revealed at a later date as they get closer to completion.

That said, glad I got the lifetime sub when I did.
We will still have multiple ways of obtaining a lifetime membership after these changes via the RC Store, Prize Wheel and other giveaways and possibly an upgrade conversion path.
