Cheat Engine(CE) is a very powerful memory analyzer and debugging tool made by Eric Heijnis for the famous Windows operating system, specifically for the x86 architecture. It is not only used for cheating in video games, but is also sometimes compiled and modified for other purposes as well. A lot of people like to use this program for detecting security vulnerabilities in a computer or network. This software is mostly downloaded from the internet, since there is no legal action if one downloads the program.
Cheat Engine will first scan the PC for any malicious codes or DLL files that may be hiding in the windows. After the scanning, it will show a list of all files found and what exactly the code does. A "hex dump" is shown next to the names of the files, which will disclose the encoding used for the encoding of the detected codes. The last step of the process will show whether any codes were found that are trying to execute "Infinite Health", a cheat code designed for cheats in the game.
The cheats used in the game that has the highest rate of success are usually found in the "Infinite Health" cheat. This is mainly due to the fact that it is impossible to detect these codes. However, this can be detected with the help of Cheat Engine. A list of all current "Infinite Health" cheats and codes can be seen in the files of Cheat Engine. The creator of Cheat Engine has stated that he releases the software on the internet so that everyone can benefit from his creation; however, he does not plan to make any more versions of the cheat engine.
