CheatEngine (boring) example

Today I finally got myself to try it and record it in all its messy ways.

Sadly the audio didn’t survive the conversion, but I wasn’t talking anyway, so I guess it is okay.

You can just listen to this, so it might not be all that boring without sound. 🙂

And down there is the 1 hour video. It took me a while to figure it out again. But it is not that difficult if you are really into it and also do it once in a while, unlike me. But at least you see how I do it and how it could be.

And in case you have no idea what is happening, you can look up some tutorial on YouTube, ask or maybe look up the cheatengine website for more infos and try the tutorial of CheatEngine itself (on start up or the about menu).

What I do is only the very basic thing, so really nothing special and probably no one will watch it any way.

In case you have no idea what the weird letter and number combinations mean. It is hexadecimal.

I mean for those of you who are into computers and programming yourself, this is nothing new I guess. 😀 But yea…

Decimal numbers are with 0….9 and Hexadecimal is with 0….F, so 0-9 and then A-F, which gives it 16 “base” states instead of just 10 like it decimal (what we humans usually use). And binary is just 0 and 1. Related to computer science and codes it is easier to use a combination of bin(ary) and hex(adecimal).

So the number 15 = F, while 9 = 9. But when in decimal after the 9 comes 10, in hex we get an A because A = 10. And after 15, the F, we get “10” in hex as well, but it actually means 16 instead of ten.

This is why it usually is written with prefix like “0x” or an suffix “h” and binary prefix “0b” or suffix “b”.

If you take the maximum value for one Byte (typical, lowest unit, 8 Bit), which is 255, you can also write 0xFF or 0b11111111.

OR we mess it up completely and use morse code as binary code for alphabetic code and get the following:

▬ ▬ ●●● ▬ ▬ ▬

▬ ▬ ●● ▬ ▬ ● ▬

▬ ▬ ●● ▬ ▬ ▬ ●

If you know what it means, let me know, in case you want. I know, nothing special or interesting, but at least something different from all the noise.

And did you get the actual morse code? 😀 If you didn’t somewhere around this page you will find some codes, I hope. ^^
