  • What are good debugging strategies with Cheat Engine? user57112

    I tried to enable a god mode in a game I play. Even though I found the health value on the correct address, locking the memory region did not stop enemies from killing me.

    That means, that the real value might be sitting somewhere else.I found only this one memory address with the exact value of my health though, which is represented as a float in the game, since it can contain values like e.g. 333,9.

    What would be a general strategy to find the real value?

    I am using the latest Version of Cheat Engine.

    ps.: I am doing this to strengthen my skills of reverse engineering with something simple, not because I am not capable of playing a game.

  • advantage of these opportunities. If I do not want to waste my life hoping for the RNG god to smile on me, I turn to cheats. So far I've figured out how to give myself billions of credits (Memory editing, nuff said) and increase cargo capacity of a ship (Memory edit the amount of wares, eject the hacked wares). Are there any other cheating options that won't mark my game as modified? Some memory editing tricks I've missed, particularly for engine tunings and rudder optimizations? Perhaps the key used to sign scripts officially endorsed by Egosoft has been cracked, allowing us to cheat however we like?

For example, in a match I remember the opponent was guessing exactly where my snipers were hiding and where my troops were standing even though I was in FOW and my Snipers were camouflaged. After consulting with other pros I have heard that there is some kind of FOW reveal cheat code for Company of Heroes v 1.0 But I was never able to get my hands on it. Does anyone one know whether it really exists or not and where to find it?

  • and I don't know how many in-game hours (real-world minutes, according to the linked thread) are left before dawn. I don't want the night to pass away while I'm in the middle of completing the objective and therefore lose the bonus. Is there a globally-accessible means of telling what time it is, with a reasonable amount of precision, in-game? I know the clock in Lynchwood give some indication, but to travel there (and especially to fast-travel) would take some time and really throw off my plans. NOTE: Though I would not be surprised to find out that there is a cheat/debug command
