Yup, I totally agree on your post. I just got done submitting my request for a refund.
But there is a sandbox mode where you can do whatever you want with unlimited funds...
I know this is going to sound crazy, but the main reason I use trainers/cheats in economic simulation games is to basically build what I want how I want (a zoo, a city, or whatever) and then turn off the cheats and attempt to run and manage my creation under normal gameplay. Usually sandbox mode just disables finances entirely, so once I build a zoo there's no challenge afterwards.
Either way, it doesn't matter, Steam denied my refund request. So I ended up wasting $50 on a game which I made it a point not to buy until I verified that CH had a trainer, and then that trainer got retired shortly thereafter.
we bought the game too.. and spent hours working on it. They developers saw the cheating holes, then plugged them, then moved things online.
it is what it is
...and they will have similar issues so what's the point? If you want us to keep updating the trainer and it helps/works for certain parts of the game then we are happy to, but we need to know. Right now it appears they moved almost everything online.
