Alright guys time to share one of my most favorite hobbies to do. Since I got a good number of replies from my last post ill explain why I asked. I'm looking for a number of flash games to make hacks or..."Game Shark cheats" for them. Okay~ onto the buisness.
An array of bytes is exactly what it sounds like, an array of bytes. In flash a single byte consists of two numbers and/or letters such as A5. The hex codes range from A-F and 0-1 and can be in any arrangement such as the example in the previous sentence or bytes like 66 3e 94 so on and so forth. What I do with this is called Reverse Engineering.
Reverse engineering basically changes an array of bytes to make them work a different way than it's suppose to work. Now lets move on to how to use them.
The use of an AoB (Array of Bytes) can be easily used by a program called Cheat Engine. I'm pretty sure that a lot of you have heard of cheat engine or even used it. To hack a flash game its actually one of the easiest ways to do it. "Why use AoB's if I can just edit the score that I get", two reasons; first off a game isn't as fun when you don't play it, secondly there are certain online games or multiplayer games where the score can't be edited since the game normally runs off the server. Alright lets get to the tutorial! -Note- For the tutorial ill be using a game from Neopets, yes Neopet's I go there mostly because they have some pretty challenging games to hack and I have to brainstorm on how I want to hack them.
Thing's you'll need:
Firefox/Chrome Web Browser
Step 1. Load up your web browser of choice, I chose firefox because the plug-in container is easier to locate. Load the game and then load up cheat engine. DO NOT I repeat DO NOT click anything on the game just let it sit there.
Step 5: Select your array of bytes that you have for the current game you are playing and hit first scan. (In box image below). Hit enter.
Step 6: After it's done scanning you should get address' in the field to your left (1). Select and drop these values down [If there is more than one] and click the red arrow on the bottom of the program (2). Your values should end up in (3).
