Searching for hack tutorials for server based games.

Hello, I was wondering if there are any posts or links you know that are tutorials for hacking server based games. Also, if it matters I use google chrome and am a beginner at this stuff but can definitely learn at the end of the day. Another question is: Is cheat engine capable of doing this? (edit): depending on if the game is text-based or flash does that also matter? Thanks!

Thank you.

theres a few obscure posts in this forum that even i cant remember where they are because server sided games arent popular among us hackers. server based games are usually avoided because they take so much time and effort just to do anything. if you really want to try and hack one, follow a guide for a normal game (not server sided) and then do the same thing for a server sided game. youll see what i mean.

google chrome is fine, as long as you know which process the game is using. (usually you can find it in firefox much quicker, but thats a personal preference)

cheat engine is definitely capable of it, but its limited to whatever is client sided. usually for server sided games you want to try editing packets with something like charles or wpe pro before looking in the swf.

and yes, the type of game matters. hacking flash is different than unity, which is different from html5, and so on and so forth.




Cheat Engine is a memory editor, i.e. it can edit anything running on your computer. In some cases, packet editing is necessary. However, anything a packet editor can do is also possible with Cheat Engine AFAIK, since packets are formed by programs in memory. Some games are impossible to hack without illegally accessing a server, e.g. Twitch Plays Pokemon. A game like TPP can be hacked by injecting code if the server doesn't handle the data from the client properly.

TL;DR no.

Most server based games are server based to prevent hacking. The server keeps a copy of your data and when the data on your PC doesn't match the data on the server (because you edited it with Cheat Engine), the server overwrites your local data with a copy from the server (or worse, knows you're cheating and trolls you). *IF* the server has an unduplicated variable that is only manipulated locally, then you can hack that easily enough. For example, if a fight between you and an NPC is handled on your local machine and only the result is posted to the server, then you could hack HP to make sure you always won. Very few server side games operate this way though. Most would involve actually hacking the server which is illegal (and I don't just mean slap on the wrist illegal).

this ^

if its client sided, you can edit it. but finding something worth editing is usually the worst part of mmo's because everything is serversided. theres barely anything worth editing. and its never worth the effort.

but a good example of an mmo where a lot is client sided is "Cloudstone"
we went nuts on that game for a while.

and yes, hacking into somebody elses servers is highly illegal. you go to jail for things like that. thats why i tend to call aob's and such "cheats" rather than "hacks"

Ok I think I get the gist of it. So I was wondering if it is ok to ask for a more specific request(would I need to make a new post for that?)? Because I noticed before posting this post it said something about if I know the game name just put it in there. The reason why I did not jump right into it was cuz I felt like I would run into some of these things that you guys are telling me right now anyways so I thought it'd be better to ask now and start narrowing down to the specifics. Sorry if this is an inconvenience... Just how my brain works I guess...  Thank you again.
