Picture of Hack a Computer Game!

nope this is not one of thos instructbles this on realy works! and you can just change in game numbers like lives, money, and the only thing you need is an free program! so lets get started

Step 1: Start Your Game

first of all you must download the program here:
then you must start your game i have used volfied as an example(reeeeaaaaaaly old game). after that you start ArtMoney.(sorry couldn't make in game screenshots)

Step 2: Now Lets Start Hacking!

Picture of Now Lets Start Hacking!

you must start an game(savegame, whatever as long as you are not in some sort of menu(pause menu is good)) then look at the value you want to chance(like live) and memorise it then go to artmoney select the right procces and click search type in the value you want to search for(if you cant typ in your value try to select all from the list) when the search is complete at the left side there is a list of values now go to your game and chance your value(die one time, give some money) now go to artmoney and press filter then enter the new value in there, now the list at the left side becomes smaler repeat this step until there is only one left,

Step 3: Lets Chance Something!

Picture of Lets Chance Something!

when you only have on value left in the list select it and click the red arrow, now double click on the value an chance it, then go back to the game and go do something

note if it doen't apear to have chanced then do something with that value(die, spend money,) that is all!

and if you dont want to research every time you want to cheat yust save the table with the save button!

Please note this only works for single player games. Many values inc gold and health for Mmo games are held server side so its no go. I have experimented with this and it is easy to say hack diablo 2 and have infinite upgrade points and spells that go past the level cap of the game.

its hard to download it just keeps putting me on login.... :/

lieuwe (author)izzswag112012-06-12

woah, old instructable. anyways, you're probably better off using cheat engine, it has a builting tutorial and works very similar to this. download here:

This is good as we can change any game to make us win when we suicide our creature.

Any way you can hack a PS3?

lieuwe (author)x1RONF1STx2010-05-24

 probably, but i don't own one, so I wouldn't know. but presumably there has to be some way to achieve this on a ps3...

does it work for wow?

Monkey T. (author)2008-03-05

an iBook G4 is mac laptop, it doesn't "like" .exe files :-( thanks fer the tip

ReCreate (author)Monkey T.2009-07-25

It does not run Executables because they are windows only.

lieuwe (author)ReCreate2009-07-26

*bzzzt* wrong, executable is just a term for something you can run, pe executables are windows only, and this is a pe executable...

ReCreate (author)lieuwe2009-07-26

Pe executable? I never heard of that before...

lieuwe (author)ReCreate2009-08-07

most people don't, it's a term you almost only hear when programming an OS, see for more info...

ReCreate (author)lieuwe2009-08-07

Well then...

try searching google for a mac memory editor, don't know much about macs >.

shikaku (author)2008-09-27

this is called a hex editor, and any will do

lieuwe (author)shikaku2008-09-29

this is NOT a hex editor, with a hex editor you edit the .exe file itself, with this you only read and change the RAM memory it uses(where the variables/numbers/text are stored), BTW:I don't use this anymore, you should use cheatengine, its WAAY better, and it comes with a tut

shikaku (author)lieuwe2008-09-29

no dude, i dont think you know what you're talking about. the thing you're explaining is a hex editor, woah, exactly what this is

lieuwe (author)shikaku2008-09-30

dude, I DO know what I'm talking about. a hex editor edits files, this edits memory(RAM memory, which stands for Random Axes Memory), it looks like you don't know what you're talking about

lieuwe (author)lieuwe2008-09-30

BTW:some virus scanners do say it's an hex-editor, but hex stands for hexidecimal, which is like binary, a way to write down numbers, a hex editor works with files, this doesn't

shikaku (author)lieuwe2008-09-30

oooh you know what RAM stands for. then you should also know that if it only changes RAM, it would only change variables the RAM changes, which means it would only work for the time you booted up the game. you would have to do it again next time. Also, Hexidecimal is not like binary. binary uses 1's and 0's while hexidecimal uses a bit more numbers, and letters

lieuwe (author)shikaku2009-08-07

i never said hex IS binary, it's LIKE binary, it's a base, a method off writing numbers down, binary is just base2 and hex is something like base16, and this program ONLY edits ram, and YES you have to redo it every time you start the game, you can however save tables, which remember the addresses you changed and change them automatically, if you save your game it is possible to leak some off your hacks into the savefile, which when loaded (unintentionally) re-applies your hacks, eg. you change your health to 9999999, if you then save the game, your health is written to a file, whel loaded your health is still 9999999, but that's basically the game hacking itself

wax54 (author)shikaku2009-03-29

hey hex is like binary in this way hex is the more complex and shortend version (ex. 10101010010100010100100 binary=5528A4 hex this 24 number string = 6 numbers they are both computer languages) i am 10 and i know this guys.

lieuwe (author)shikaku2008-10-01

dude, if you don't know what you're talking about, just shut up, because it DOES edit Ram, and yes when you restart you have to do it again, unless you load a table, but then the program would apply it again for you, now stop bugging me

lieuwe (author)lieuwe2008-10-01

oh, and I didn't say hex is EXACTLY like binary, but binary is a number system and hex is too, you can use decimal to write numbers down but you can also use hexidecimal or binary(why else would you be able to translate from hex to bin)

ReCreate (author)lieuwe2009-07-25

Random Access Memory

ReCreate (author)shikaku2008-09-30

No i think its called a memory editor

martiansaregreen (author)2009-06-25

This isn't a hack. Learn the difference between scripting and hacking. Scripts edit packet sequences to alter visual and sometimes functional effects of a game. Hacking actually requires more thought and work.

lieuwe (author)martiansaregreen2009-06-26

and why doesn't this qualify as a hack?"to devise or modify (a computer program), usually skillfully." which is exactly what i did, but i suggest using cheatengine, more powerfull than this, then you can actually modify the program assembly code, and this isn't scripting, scripting is creating a piece off text which is read by another program which then executes the commands in your text, similar to actual programing

rtardzach (author)2008-03-22

does anyone have any hacks for BF2? Please!

Derin (author)rtardzach2009-05-04

I used to play BF2.There are no cheat codes,but by editing a file with Notepad you unlock new weapons for each kit.

bradd (author)2009-05-03

dude i can do this without the program its simple if your good

00Grenade00 (author)2007-12-30

can you install cheat engine in linux

Kalessin (author)00Grenade002009-04-17

Not normally, but you could try running it under wine - got to for more info. No promises though - wine is by no means perfect! Otherwise, there's probably a memory editor available for linux that'll be packaged in a nice neat .deb or .rpm (or insert whatever other packaging format your distro uses here). Google is your friend.

daydragon123 (author)2008-09-27

i went on youtube it looked like some one was useing artmoney for runescape but he said he said its not art money he made the process his self and artmoney and the same thing he was useing looked the same so i dowloaded art money and tryed to change my money on runescape to 999mil and if i drop it it turns to the regular price like 23gp so would art money work for this game?

Kalessin (author)daydragon1232009-04-17

Because runescape information is saved on a server and not on the local client, you would have to convince the remote server that you'd just got the cash. That can't be done either 1) using these apps - they affect the local machine only - OR 2) legally - you don't own the servers or have permission to run arbitrary commands or code on them, which you'd need.

wax54 (author)2009-03-29

hey does it have to be a cd game or can it be on the internet.

Qzark383 (author)2009-01-12

Hey guys, maybe instead of talking about different Instructables/hacks, we should stick to this one!

pestan (author)2008-08-17

okay I have like 600 integers! what the heck!

lieuwe (author)pestan2008-08-18

then you need to change the value in-game, an then fill that in in artmoney then click on filter, repeat until you have 1 left

lieuwe (author)lieuwe2008-08-18

oops, you should click filter first, then fill in the value :P
