My Cheat Tables does not work. What do I do?
Most likely you updated your game. That means your .CT table was created for a different version or patch of the game. Creating a cheat table takes a long time most people that code them do not get paid at all. – So there is simply no way that there will ever be a working Cheat Table for every version of every game out there. If you want to use trainers, then do not update your game. That is the general rule, since trainers are generally made to work with the release version of a game.
An exception to this rule can be AoB Trainers that do not depend on an exact memory structure. AoB Scripts are more advanced and can usually still find the values needed for the cheat, even if the game has had a few updates and changes. So it is highly recommended that you keep an eye out for AoB scripts if you want to keep your game up to date. To find updated Cheat Tables, use our HackFinder Tool.

Are Cheat Tables or .CT files safe to use?
Generally, yes. – So far we know of no cases of malicious scripts or tables. As far as we know, it is not possible to infect any PC with viruses using Cheat Tables. However, it is still recommended that you only download from websites that have proven to provide clean and safe downloads.
It also pays to check out website reviews and perform virus scans on any and all files you download for the purpose of cheating in PC games. It is a good and proven best practice and if you cannot be 100% sure that a file is clean, simply do not use it.
Options / Scripts vs Pointers
Pointers are values from the game that you are able to change. They allow for more customization than trainer options of scripts. So while a God Mode script will just give you unlimited HP, a pointer allows you to specify for example your maximum health, current health, healthy regeneration ect. I personally like pointers a lot more, because it allows me to customize my cheats to my liking.
Scripts or Options are premade cheats, such as God Mode, One Hit Kill, Invisibility, Invulnerability, Unlimited Money ect. No customization of the cheat option is possible without changing the cheat table code.
