    number of lines of code and difficulty to make a certain cheat for a game.

    For those experts, how many lines of code and how hard is it to make a cheat from scratch where to activate the cheat I have to type a word in my keyboard and then an option appears where I press 0 for one option, 1 for another, and 2 for the third and soforth. For those who have played hexen from raven software would know what I mean.

    You just need to record the last N keys pressed (in a circular array) and see if the last N letters match the cheat code.

    Then you have to make the menu, and how many lines that takes depends on whether you have already made generic subroutines for menus.

    Let me bring the following quote from the forum announcements to your attention:
    6. Messages relating to cracking, (erroneously called "hacking" by many), copyright violations, or other illegal activities will be deleted. This includes all messages reguarding to keyloggers.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    I believe he's talking about implementing this in his own program, not cracking someone else's.

    Apologies if I'm wrong, but that's what I got from it.

    Eh.. right. If that is the case, sorry for my mistake.

    Cheers

    well, here's what it could look like if your program's using some kind of console input like half-life does:
    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    #include<cstdlib>
    #include<string>
    
    int cheatMenu();
    
    int main()
    {
    	std::string line;
    	int choice;
    	while(getline(std::cin,line,'\n'))
    	{
    		if(line=="/cheat")
    		{
    			choice=cheatMenu();
    			
    			if(choice==1)
    			{
    				std::cout<<"You Win\n";
    			}
    			else if(choice==2)
    			{
    				std::cout<<"You Lose\n";
    			}
    		}
    		else if(line=="/exit")
    		{
    			std::cout<<"Press [ENTER] to exit\n";
    			std::cin.get();
    			break;
    		}
    	}
    	return 0;
    }
    
    int cheatMenu()
    {
    	char retval[2];
    	
    	std::cout<<"Pick a Cheat:\n"
    		<<" 0: Nothing\n"
    		<<" 1: Kill Everybody Else\n"
    		<<" 2: Kill Yourself\n";
    	std::cin.get(retval[0]);
    	std::cout<<std::endl;
    
    	return atoi(retval);
    }
