depends on the game, but with most muds it would be editing packets.

I hope you only want to know this to prevent persons from cheating in your game and not to cheat yourself.

there is always a way to cheat if the server doesn''t check all commands the client sends.

say you code a FPS and someone has manipulated the client to send "I hit player X for 50 Dam"...
If the server wouldn''t check this, you even could kill player X while he is still not in your line of sight...

also the server may send you the locations of all player in a certain radius, even if they not in line of sight for you (behind a door for example).
Using a modified client you chould have a HUD giving you the direction to your enemy and giving you a good help.

making walls translucent would even let you see people behind a wall.
