Good points @Chris, and very much on target. WeMod has no ads, no spyware, and given the amount of effort that goes into the project, the Pro version is a logical way of obtaining income. Those who purchase a Pro membership help support the team and in turn, gain certain perks.
I see it as an investment. Yes, there are tools out there like Cheat Engine, but they have a learning curve, and require the time to find the correct tables. I’ve used for a couple of games WeMod doesn’t yet support, and for me, it just isn’t worth the effort. For the more casual gamer, WeMod is the best choice hands down. It is always evolving, adding new games and features.
Going Pro simply adds convenience. In order to maintain WeMod’s high standard of quality, it requires income. Trainers are constantly being updated every time there is a patch, and that takes time and effort. A Pro membership simply provides a form of compensation.
I realize the lack of certain features and changes in the new free version may irritate some users. It really comes down to asking one’s self: “Is a Pro membership worth it for me”? If yes, consider it an investment. If no, then there are other options such as Cheat Engine, or creating one’s own trainer if they have the knowledge and skill.
Personally, it is just as much about the community as it is the software. @Chris, @Zach, @STN, (and many others) have always been very helpful, responsive, and receptive to reasonable suggestions and recommendations. Most users are very friendly and helpful, there is a genuine sense of unity, as well as friendship among members. Supporting WeMod isn’t just supporting the tool, it is supporting the team and the community.
