Freeze Values
« on: October 19, 2007, 10:26:54 pm »
How do trainers (e.g., TSearch, CheatEngine, TMK) freeze/lock values in an address? There seems to be a timer, but no NOP'ng of instructions that write to the address. Does it constantly re-write to that address, or is there more to it?

Yes, timer probably. A very fast rewrite.

Nope- that's all there is to it.  As MO pointed out a very fast re-write (you can change the update time in some memory scanners too so that it doesn't hog your CPU).
