This is basically a reply to (pw)'s post below is a copy of his post.
use the no-cd fix for compatibility reasons. we're not going to buy 37 copies of this game so we can make a trainer that works with all the various digital download services when you can download and use a no-cd fix for free. take it or leave it.
Correct me if im wrong, but when in trainer description you say original retail version of the game i assume that means original in all aspects aka no mod exe files e.g no cd crack.
Personally as a paying customer i find your post both insulting and damn right arrogant, i understand you could not possibly buy all versions of the game, but i myself along with many other bought the original retail version weather it be from eastore or from a retail outlet, and for the trainer not to work for the eastore version is pretty much a rip off, i paid for a service and i expect to have what i pay for, not take it or leave it like im some kind of crap on the heel of you shoe, if you cannot make a trainer for this version just say so and not post with such arrogance and bad posture.

As unfair as it may seem it just may not be realistic for Cal to make a trainer for every version of every game under the sun. And in the past Cal has made if I remember right different versions of trainers for a digital (steam) version of a game and a Disk version of a game. But that may not always be possible. My advice if you want to be able to get a working for a trainer then by the retail version of the game on disk and not as a digital download. I have had a very small amount of problens getting trainers to work with games I have bought on disk. And I know you may not like me saying this BUT the CH staff has always provided me with solutions to my trainer issues.

im not complaining that i haven't got a working trainer as such, but the manner in which people have been told, as if to say well screw u if you don't like it go somewhere else. I have always appreciated the effort they have put into trainers, but in his post it just seemed rude and damned arrogant.

Perhaps it's because I am inundated with the same exact posts over and over and in email over and over. I've answered this same question about 15 times so far and the answer has always been the same.
Again, there is no point in us buying every copy of this game that has been added on every mom and pop digital download site if ALL (!) of them will work fine by taking 30 secs and downloading a no-cd fix. Now, if you would like to pay, say $500/year for your membership then we'll be happy to spend $500 on every game buying 20 copies and releasing 20 trainers. However, we like to keep our membership fees reasonable and thus occasionally we ask that our members take it upon themselves to download a small no-cd fix when necessary.
Remember, for every version of the game we buy and release a separate trainer for, it's another version we have to install on our HD, reinstall when patches come out and update for the next year or more. Each version has to be searched out separately, tested, compiled, etc.
Now, like I said before, if you don't like our service or think we should be providing you with something more, than I'm sorry. We're doing the best we can to accommodate ALL of the members of this website, not just the people that happen to be playing this particular game.

I'm having problems with my copy also, but I'll wait to see if another one comes out for the version I have. I think this is the best "cheat" site on nthe web, and I'm proud to be a part of it as a Life Time Member. Keep up the great work Pwizard and all involved.
