    [Updated 2010-01-07] GAME CONQUEROR 0.09 -- a game cheating tool for Linux

    Overview
    --------

    Cheat Engine is one of the most powerful cheating tool in Windows, as a experienced game cheater, I used it a lot and found it really handy. I've been always wondering why there's not a counterpart in Linux, and at last I decided to make one myself.

    I dropped my early coded after I found scanmem, and decided to create a GUI front-end for it, called Game Conqueror. Thanks to Tavis (original author of scanmem), now GC is a part of scanmem.



    Checkout
    --------


    Updated 2010-01-05
    Now a PPA for scanmem & gamemconqueror is avaiable:

    https://launchpad.net/~coolwanglu/+archive/scanmem

    Enjoy!



    web page:
    http://code.google.com/p/scanmem/

    Updated: Now there is a v0.08 release, enjoy!

    SVN Checkout:
    svn checkout http://scanmem.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ scanmem

    I had considered to created a PPA, but right now I don't that enough time for that, but packers will be welcomed.


    Build
    -----

    You need automake, python and pygtk

    ./configure && make to build scanmem
    and you can find the GameConqueror in gui/GameConqueror.py

    You're recommend to execute the py file in a shell, because it is the only place you can see the error output and progress of scanning

    Sorry for the inconvenience but so far GUI improvement has the lowest priority unless necessary.


    Usage
    -----
    You are assume to be familiar with CheatEngine, and you can see that the GUI is quite similar

    Now all basic scan types (equal greater less increased(by) decreased(by) on all basic data types (int8/16/32/64 float8/16/32/64 or unknown width) have been implemented, you may found the easy-to-use syntax on the tooltip of 'Value:' label.

    And for locking, you can only freeze a number but not make it 'not increased/decreased' as in CheatEngine, the delay is set to be 500ms, which could be changed in the .py file.


    Support
    -------

    * Bug Report
    Please submit in the project page

    * Feature Request
    Actually there are still many features I'm working on, currently GameConqueror is just a simple basic tool. But all patches are welcomed

    * Contribution
    If you like it, please provide some CODE instead of MONEY!



    So that's all. Enjoy it!

    So I do know how to enjoy a game and I don't cheat very often.
    But cheating could be fun, as some games are too hard, some are too boring, you can change the way it is
    And cheating can also be necessary, when you want to play a game again without the savedata -- this always happens to me...

    At least CheatEngine is amzing and I want a similar tool in Linux.

    Ah nice, been looking for something like this for a while.
    Are you using ptrace() to edit & read memory?

    /proc/<pid>/mem will be used if availabe, otherwise ptrace() will be used.

    But in fact, currently these two ways are mixed up, and ptrace is used more often.

    Huh, that opens up a lot of technical exploits besides effin' cheating :/ I'd suggest you people should let your hands off this thing

    Besides, every FOSS game has a debugging/cheating mode for, well, debugging/development purposes - which is also the case for almost every proprietary game, too. Why would you need a cheating tool?

    But cheating could be fun, as some games are too hard, some are too boring, you can change the way it is
    I hope for your f* sake that you don't mean multiplayer games.

    I hope for your f* sake that you don't mean multiplayer games.

    Not every game has a debugging mode, like Flash games. Even there is, such kind of time is still useful. For boring games, or a boring part of a game, I have to find a way of passing it as fast as possible, after all you're playing the game, not the game playing you.

    If I have to cheat the game, either I want to try the crazy mode, or the game itself sucks. I just want to have fun, and most of time I don't want to ruin the game by cheating.

    For single player games, cheating means modifying but nothing, unless you upload your score or something like that. For multiplayer games, cheating is cheating, it should not be tolerated unless agreement ahead. When you play with others, the fun part is communication through the game, not only the game itself.

    The tool itself is just a tool, I publish it only because it might be useful, but not to encourage cheating.

    I'm considering in implementation of memory viewer/editor, maybe ghex2 can be employed here...

    Sudo apt-get install scanmem
    Sudo apt-get install python
    I'm also find your python file in /Gui what am i suppose to do next. Just click in the link and it opens a long text file. How can i get that .py file. Looking for your reply soon.

    Hi, scanmem in the repository should not work, since I added more stuff in the latest version.

    So here's what you should do:

    1. checkout svn code
    2.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install automake python python-gtk2
    3.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get build-dep scanmem
    4. Enter the directory of the source code, and
    Code:
    ./configure && make
    5. Now you may execute it by execute
    Code:
    gui/GameConqueror.py
    Hope this works.
