Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War - Dark Crusade Discussion
Trainer Tools and Resources
I'm just wondering when a nice smooth checkout system will be implimented so we can get microtransactions going on trainers and cheatcode.
Capatilism at it's most noble.

I think it's just a shame, I was around when sites like this were nothing more than a few people who got lucky finds and shared their knowledge.
Telling people they have to give you money to enjoy these finds (whether they were difficult to be coded or not I've never heard of paying for trainers before in my life) is completely destroying the spirit of which your "business" was founded on.
To be honest I'm just bitterly dissapointed that you make people commit themselves to you guys for a year just so they can get an extra bit of fun out of a game they bought.
sigh, gl counting your assets.
Support shouldn't be compulsary, by saying "you can't have this unless you pay" is taking away peoples CHOICE to support you.

We've tried very hard to maintain our original goals and keep as many things free as possible, even though it costs us time and money to have a lot of it custom created. Nearly all of the content we pay to have custom programmed is released to the public. A very small handful, like this Dark Crusade trainer, are reserved for our paying members as a value added part of their membership and also to encourage others to sign up. There are actually other sites out there that charge as much as $9.95 a MONTH in order to download trainers that they have created and otherwise. I feel that our $14.95 a YEAR is a very fair price for all the hard work that goes into creating this content, supporting it, updating it and maintaining it throughout the year.
What we've done is elevate the trainer making process for those people that desire this more premium service. Previously, trainers were released by anonymous 'hacking' groups with no website, no email, no support. It was take it or leave it and too bad if it doesn't work. We provide a place where users can come and always get high quality work and we provide support and fixes to those that have problems. If you don't find that our services are worth the money we're asking, we provide free tools to create the trainers yourself.
The reason that we offer a yearly membership instead of pay-as-you-go one-off trainer purchases is because the majority of people don't just play one game a year. We create over 50-100 custom trainers every year for all the biggest titles and many of the smaller ones. A membership is really required to take advantage of all that we offer, such as ongoing support, trainer updates (which could number 5 or more for a given title over the course of a year) and fixes. We may at some point change this model, but for now people are happy with it and it's providing us enough capital to continue operating the website and having these custom cheats programmed.
Whatever reasons you use to try to quantify this, all you're doing is alienating the people who were here from the start and allowing people with more money than brains better service than those who aren't willing to whip a credit card out for a cheat code or trainer.
Sounds like you're just moving closer and closer to a "needed business model" which will require everyone to pay you money on a regular basis so that they can access any worthwhile content.
There was a reason those anonymous groups did it, and it wasn't to make a quick buck. Enjoy it.
Oh, forgot to also request unlimited planet requisition along with the wargear request!!.... Thanks again!
But anyway to the point i would also like to see the Wargear and Requisition options on the trainer if you have some extra time for it
Thank you for the fix for orcs (did not have time to test it yet)
