I like that idea and this is something that we're considering:
If no internet connection is available, having the option to authorize the trainer via the website. We'll create a hardware specific ID that you will have to put in after logging into the website. We will then generate an authorization file for you to put on that computer which will allow the trainer to run. The file will only be valid for that computer and user so posting it online would be useless.
Would you guys be open to this as a solution to your concerns?

Thanks to the CH team for the posting, I'm sure the firewall warning threw up some red flags to members. I didn't believe there was anything malicious, but clarifications are always welcome and reassuring.
PWizard: The hardware ID would be a great solution for offline use.

agreed, would definately like a Hardare ID, another question would be I have 3 PCs and a laptop, laptop plays very few games requiring a trainer and the other 3 One is my main another my bros another a spare for lans etc....so i guess to cut all that short, would there be a limit to how many IDs a specific user got like >10 (perfectly fien with me) or when you come up with a check that says "hey this ******* just came up with 10K unique user IDs" would u ban then just wondering how it all works but again im totally up for this idea as i have a friend how has dialup that we lan at every now and then...

not sure if someone has said this already.. but it could be possible to put a login authent onto the trainer. say for instance.. when a paid member d/ls the trainer, it encrypts that info onto the trainer like it does now, but the website logs the download to that persons paid ID, and that same ID has to be logged into the trainer for it to work, when someone logs into the trainer it sends the login info to the site and if the ID goes with the ID on the trainer it'll work. otherwise the trainer cant/wont login to use it and it wont work. basically just enter a login authent like you need to login to the site and that same paid ID that you login to the site with will unlock the trainer and it could only be used by that paying members ID.. eh either way im sure you guys know what im talking about. im even confusing myself a lil bit lol. but in either case that could more then likely work, however it would mean more work to be put into the trainers though..
And naturally the site/server tracks IPs so if an unlim ID is used on a different IP after like 2 or 3 times or something like that, the ID gets removed and that users trainer gets blocked.
eh sorry it kinda looks like sum1 may have posted a smiliar idea? if so my bad..
sry i keep adding stuff, i keep thinking of stuff as i go along.
Yes, I really like this hardware auth type of approach. So, if there is internet, than the program auths itself, if newer version is available, it automatically updates itself, or if free version is available. And if there is no internet, it generates a file, that describes your hardware, and u can upload that to your account, you get back another file, that contains a hash of the previous file, and if the trainer finds that, and sees, that the hardware specs fit with the hash, than starts. And there can only be like less than 10 pc info’s per account... yes, that is a great setup.

im fine with that situation, its really a shame to put the work on torrent, i mean hey the unlimited membership isnt that expensive btw. thx for all the great trainers i never regret a sec. that i pay that few bucks, okok "€" *lol*
so back to topic, as long my GF and me can use the trainer at same time im fine with that And im fine with that hardware auth-code too, but ok i think that it will not harm me, i had never any problems to have access to to the i-net, after 6 years at the same isp i had only 1 hour no i-net connection, but for people without a i-net connection it will be the best way
P.S. Good that you kill the people that share the trainer before open public P.P.S: And yeah my english sucks
@DigitalIP: not all have a static IP, so you would kick peeps that still have random-pool ips.

Is it possible conduct the integrity check online during launch and then user disconnect and play offline?
I believe easy replication and distribution of trainer to be a main issue. Hardware frofiling might also be ok, I submit my electronic profile of my gaming pc and trainer only work for that pc. I do upgrade every year so new profile might need to be submitted.
