“Aw man, if only this game was just a bit easier..” or perhaps “Boy do I wish I had more money to buy that cool gun and pwn whatever stands in my way..”
Well, you’ve probably said either or a third thing sometime when you’ve played a game. How do you fix it? You cheat!
But here’s the problem: You use Google Chrome, and have no clue how to use Cheat Engine in Chrome Browser.
NOTE: Since Google has removed the about:memory tab, finding the proces ID is done by pressing shift and escape. Thanks to Jack for letting us know. 🙂
Well then, first you download Cheat Engine. When that’s done, install it. No hard stuff here. Just keep an eye out for the ads in the installer, and decline them.
When that’s done, or in case you already has Cheat Engine, the harder part starts. Connecting it to Chrome.
So here’s what you do..
Open a new tab and type in “about:memory” without the quotes in the url bar and hit enter.
- Find Pepper Plugin – Shockwave Flash.
Look at the PID number. It changes everytime you open up a new Chrome window.
- Open your calculator and hit ALT+3 (View > Programming) The following picture is in Danish, but it shows where to click and which option to choose.
Set the counter to Decimal ‘dec’, and type in the PID. In this case our PID is 5176 so we type in 5176.
Press Heximal ‘hex’ and see what number it gives you. Keep in mind that it can be a regular number, or a combination of letters and numbers. Our reading says 1438.
Open up Cheat Engine and press the little computer in the left top corner. Chances are there’s a blinking box around it, so you can’t miss it.
- Find the number from the calculator.
Press Open and you’re good to go.
