K, now, before I continue my post, by hacking I don''t mean getting into someone else''s computer and destroying it. I simply mean to hack my game to give me a few slight advantages My question is, how does one hack? I don''t know the first thing about it, anyone care to enlighten me on harmless hacking? ------------------------------------------------------------ .:<<-v0d[KA]->>:.

I really don''t understand what you''re trying to do. If you mean you want to disable copy protection in your game or modify it in any way, then you are reffering to "cracking", not hacking. Look it up.

Depends in which regard you''re trying to hack a game. You can read the data of a savegame in a hexeditor, figuring out the format and writing a trainer. Being more complex, you can even disassemble the game code and write tools that change certain values in memory while the game is running. Hacking multiplayer games sometimes comes down to catching the network packets and modifying them...there''s no one way of hacking something.

He wants to cheat.

And i quote:-

Q: How do I hack *insert commercial product here*?

A: If you''re not skilled enough or are too lazy to play the game legitimately, we''re wondering how you found this forum. We suggest that you google search another random site, because we''re not going to tell you.

Naw, that''s just style.

And yes legitimate playing is fun, but I don''t hack for the sake of cheating, I hack for the sake of hacking.

Cracking, hacking, oh like I know. If I knew I wouldn''t be asking

Anyhow, I want to find the variables that contain weap info hp and such things in memory while the game is running and *ahem* alter them to my advantage. Anyone know?

Thats a Hex Editor (works solely for Single Player games tho that have save files). And if your looking to hack say something like Half Life, find it out your own damn self.

The sake of hacking? Really... what does that mean. Please explain... how bout you just play the game right for the sake of playing it right (owned!)
