Ok now before I ask this,

Am I allowed to talk about trainers without breaking the forum rules?

Thanks for the Reply :)

A trainer is an application that intercepts and alters the memory addresses of a game that you have running in the background. Trainers allow access to features similar to cheat codes, but these have not have been programmed into the game by the developer.

e.g. The amount of ammo you have might be 100, so you use WriteProcessMemory and change it to 488 so you have more ammo in the game..

It seems that some people define it as hacking although I strongly disagree, I also see nothing in the forum rules that seems to encompace this.

I specifically need advice on a simple "Mahjong Titans" trainer which I've making to help improve my C/C++ skills..although obviouslly I need to know if I can talk about trainers before going into specifics.

It is still reverse engineering, which in turn is also against the terms of use or copyright. Isn't it? The game developer wont agree. Would he?

Is that a rhetorical question or are you actually asking me?

The thing is it doesn't physically change the code of the game it simply changes whats been temporarily dumped into the memory...I havn't actually decompiled anything, theres no "DLL Injecting" or editing the original game in any way, just the WriteProcessMemory() function... :eek:

Um, so are you closing the thread or am I allowed to continue? :confused:

I can post the source if you would like...

I am not passing judgment over your actions, but when you attempt to create an application to interfere with the normal operating process of a game, then you are intervening with the developer's purpose and intellectual property. This is very important. As you said, it may be considered as hacking the game for the purpose of cheating. I don't believe that was the developer's purpose, thus consider this action against our terms of use.

I cannot allow you to continue under those terms.
