How to use the
In very simple terms, download the trainer, use
WinRAR to open the file, extract the .exe file (which is the trainer of course).
Start the game, then press ALT + Tab on your keyboard to minimize the
game window, now go to where you extracted the trainer exe, double
click it, when the trainer starts you will be presented with the
options such as unlimited ammo, god mode, no reload etc. Each one of
these options will have a 'Hotkey" associated with it, this
HotKey or keyboard key is the keyboard key you must press when in game to
activate and use this particular option, so click back into the game
by clicking on the game tab in the task bar, when back in the game
press the Hotkey to activate one of the options. Always read the .nfo
/ readme that comes with a trainer (or by clicking the Info button
when you run the trainer) to check if there any special instructions.
Common problems when
using a trainer:
- False virus/trojan alerts:
It rarely happens, but if your Antivirus program gives a warning, it
is a FALSE POSITIVE! The file is NOT a virus or trojan,
because of the way a trainer operates, by running in the games memory
and the trainer using hotkeys often a virus scanner detects this as suspicious activity and flags it
as a virus or trojan that will harm your PC. It is harmless! E-mailing
me and abusing me that files on the site are viruses/trojans is
wasting both your time and my time, why would I upload viruses and
trojans when these same files reside on my own computer, this would be
a bit risky for me wouldn't you think? If your virus scanner gives a
warning for a trainer and your still not sure, don't use the trainer,
using any of the files from GamePatchPlanet is done so at your own
risk as stated in the Disclaimer.
problems: Trainers that were made for older games that ran
under Windows 95/Windows 98/Windows 2000 etc. will often not run when
your using a newer version of Windows OS. To fix this, right click the
trainer .exe and choose Properties, then change the compatibility mode.
only work when you are running Windows as admin.
& Trainer versions: When looking for a trainer please take note that the trainer version must match your game version, patch updates will alter memory addresses and will make a trainer redundant for that version more often than not. Usually when someone complains a trainer is not working for them 99% of the time it is as simple as the trainer version being different to their game version.
Trainer options confusion: Some people often say that they count the trainer as having 8 options but it
is only listed as a +6 trainer on the site or by the author, the reason for this
is quite simple and also a scene standard for some time, having an option that simply
turns off or returns a value to normal is not included, the same
applies for a
teleportation system, e.g. Save Position, Teleport, Undo Teleport, because they
are the same option they are only listed as 1 option. Long ago however every
single option was included, even if it was a turn on/turn off option,
that's why you will see trainers for some older games being listed
with more options.
- Additional trainer information:
When game trainers first started appearing they consisted of only a
few Bytes of data, this gradually grew to a few KB and then a few
hundred KB as the trainer GUI became more visually appealing and
trainer makers incorporated images into the trainers GUI. However, in
recent years game trainer sizes have increased into several MB of size
and people are not often sure why such a small program is in the
several MB of size, naturally people are suspicious of its contents
believing something nasty is packed in there (which can happen if you
download from a non-reputable site) the reason they are larger in size
is because people began stealing other peoples trainer
contents and repacking it as their own, so trainer makers started
using DRM to protect their work and prevent trainer theft.
