Don't feel too clever putting me down, as I have done it before.
I think the OP wanted to alter the memory image of an executing process without altering its image on disk. Which is still doable though trickier.
You ever try a pink golf ball, Wally? Why, the wind shear on a pink ball alone can take the head clean off a 90 pound midget at 300 yards.
Memory cheaters use ReadProcessMemory() and WriteProcessMemory() in Windows, because Windows doesn't allow you to "just read" the memory of other processes or even certain locations.

It wasn't meant to be a put down, and I couldn't figure out a way to make it not sound like one, so I put a smiley on the end. I just wanted to communicate that a hex editor shouldn't be used. N.E.W.A.Y.S. sorry.
I do not know why certain people hack programs and write viruses for computers. Theym ust be sad people with little value in their lives. What gets me the most is this:
Many say that writing a virus involves a great knowledge of computer science. If this were or
is true, then why can't these people spend there time writing usful software? Like patches for Miscrosofts buggy compilers? They would get a great deal more consumer staisfaction out of it, and would never have to be wary of getting caught for doing somthing they really shouldn't be doing in the first place

Everyone isn't happy and making solutions for a better world. There are all sorts of people screwed up on pathogens and drugs and sociopathy and hate. There's also just an explorative side to the internals of the system your screwing with.

Whoa re you to judge that anyways?

Oh, No. Those were the days. Not anymore.
Today any illiterate with a google diploma can write a virus. In fact... they are not even viruses anymore. They are hijackers, cracks, scripted worms and whatevers. It's all lego.

Sorry, I did not mean to put it like that. I am in no position to judge anyone else. I retract that
statement 100%. I was just trying to put my view across, I guess i worded it a little offensivley. Again, I applogise for that remark.
