    Creating utilities for games.

    I don't even know if this is the correct forum for this so fogive me for my ignorance. I need to find information on how I can create utilities for games. Example: Take a game, pong for instance, how can I create a utility for the game that can give you infinite lives?

    My real project will be starcraft. I don't know how many of you are familiar with the game. I need to know how to edit the game through programming.

    Sounds like you're making a trainer for it. Not sure about the legality of it (I know Blizzard has threatened people who do stuff like that), so the mods may consider this in violation of rule 6.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    O, im sorry. I apologize for the post then. It seems like a lot of people are doing it though. And its really not like a trainer, its more like an advanced version of their map making program. The original is staredit and people have made better editors for it such as: Starforge, Scmdraft, and X-tra editor. These are all well know and i don't think it violates the elua for the game, but I could be wrong.

    I am really sorry, if this violates any of the forum rules please delete this post.

    I know how Reality did it a lot.


    So Lets pretend you made Pong.


    Ok, so you need to Download a program that searches through memory. They are called Memory Hackers.

    Now that you have your program and your game pong running. Search the game for the value of lives. Then when it finds it in memory edit it. Thats all they do.

    It gets more complex when you do things like use cheats to reveal the map . Mostly you got to load them in memory editor and find the address in which the memory is changed and what is it changed too.

    Dont worry, all these sites that makes FREE memory hackers have tutorials for starcraft...

    If you want to just cheat on games, do a search for Game Wiz 32 or GameWiz 32 or Game Cheater. Those are the good ones. No coding experience is needed on those.

    I remember reading somewhere that they do violate the eula. Something about russian hackers editting the mpq file.... overalll though the better editors made the game a lot more interesting so blizzard kinda forgot about the legality of what the ruassian hacker guys were doing.
