Far Cry 4 cheats work until I relaunch the game, then they disappear (and I saved twice)

After resetting my PC recently I realized that my Far Cry 4 save was deleted and I thought instead of redoing all of it I would “cheat” a little but whenever I save and close the game after doing what I wanted to everything that I’ve done gets discarded. I am mainly just trying to re-craft all of my upgrades. Money is easy enough to attain. If anyone would be able to assist it would be greatly appreciated and sorry for the long story.

It is a trainer so it changes (temporary) memory and doesn’t necessarily save the changes like it would with save editing or playing the game. Things unlocked with say unlimited cash should still remain though.
