Cheat Engine – PC Hacking Software
Cheat Engine is a very interesting piece of software that allows you to choose a process running on your computer and scan it for certain values or codes (AoBs), then change those. This enables us to cheat in any game that is running on our own machine (PC only at the moment). Cheat Engine also allows us to create scripts that do all the hacking for us like a trainer, those script are called Cheat Tables (.CT files) and are very powerful cheating tools. Cheat Engine can be downloaded for Free and I recommend doing this for anyone who likes to cheat once in a while. Official Cheat Engine Website
Get Cheat Engine (FREE)
Important: The default installation of this software will change your start page and install certain toolbars. – This, aside from the ads on their page and (donations ?), are the primary ways the software is monetized. If you want to support the developers, then please don’t deactivate this in the installation. We had to warn you guys, since this can be annoying. But then that is how the internet works: You want free stuff, you have view some ads.
More about CE:
Cheat Engine is an open source tool that uses memory scanning in order to allow people to easily find and change values, debug games or inspect processes closer. To my knowledge, CE has been around for at least 10 years and has become the most popular tool of its kind. While there are other software that allow you to do similar things, such as ArtMoney, Bit Slicer or GameCIH for android devices, Cheat Engine offers the most extensive toolkit and biggest community out of all of them.
Cheating in Single player PC Games using CE
This too is at its best when you are trying to get cheats working in a single player game that does not feature any cheat codes or developer debugging commands. – Cheat Engine can allow you to not only change certain values, such as your health, money, stamina, level, stats, skill points and so on, but it also allows you to create your own premade scripts (trainers) to give others and make cheating even easier. All the tutorials on how to cheat in most single player games and how to create Cheat Table trainers for them, you can find in the links above. Please keep in mind that cheating in certain sp games will be a lot easier than in others. It all depends on how hard the developers tried to make the game “cheater unfriendly”. Some games will use encryptions and other mechanisms to make it harder to hack the game. However, if the game is single player and does not process any information on an external server, then you can be assured that it can be hacked using Cheat Engine if you only know how to do it.
Multiplayer Online Game Cheats using Cheat Engine
While single player games are relatively easy to hack using CE and similar tools, this is sadly (or luckily) not the case for multiplayer games. Cheat Engine works by editing the game memory and that only works if the game is actually processed on your PC and the relevant data is in your memory. The problem about most multiplayer games is that the memory that contains relevant values, such as your money, health ect, is processed on the game servers and therefore cannot be hacked using any kind of tool on your PC. – However, it is still possible to achieve certain hacks for multiplayer games, such as removing fog of war, unlocking camera or view, editing brightness, walking through walls, clipping through walls, unveiling maps and a lot more. But if you are looking for God Modes and Unlimited Gold or Money cheats for online games, then you will either have to become best friends with the games administrators or do some highly illegal stuff, which we obviously do not advise you to do and do for your own good.
We highly recommend Cheat Engine to anyone that either has a game that has no existing trainers or cheat codes, or is interested in creating his/her own cheats.
