Great program for games to cheat on. I cheated in Euro Truck Simulator, and changed my money value to $999,999,99 :D. Awesome program.
Official site for Cheat Engine. Cheat Engine hacks games, so if your antivirus ever catches anything while you use it, just ignore it and turn it off until you are done using it. It's very hard to use with flash games, so don't feel discouraged if it didn't work on a flash game you wanted to hack. Use it for programs instead.
Mostly clean and useful site. Cheat Engine installer may offer unwanted programs (garbage-free installer is also available). Be careful if you download anything posted on the forums.
There's crap (toolbars) in the installer but otherwise it's an open source software so it's clean.
Scanned the EXE file with Malwarebytes. Safe.
The site itself is safe, however the downloaded file contains malicious files labeled as malware, This could be a false positive, so be cautious.
Seriously?! You guys are flipping out because your scanner thought it picked up a virus...wow.
Cheat engine is totally safe and awesome. If you download the file with the setup, it includes opencandy, which though not really a virus...is crap you don't want on your computer. The author TELLS YOU that it is there...he is not trying to deceive you. He also provides an alternate download (which I got) if you don't want it.
Stop freaking out noobs.
Best hack tool ever? Best hack tool ever!
This cheat engine is fun, you can change or make a cheat when you playing games. And this is just a thing only for professionals. When you using this thing, you must be careful. Because when you get wrong when changing the binaries, your game will show an error.
My Question (and all of you too..)
WHY THIS USEFUL TOOL MARKED AS VIRUS BY hpHosts OR SEVERAL ANTIVIRUSES?
They detects Cheat Engine as virus because they seen something unusual with this tool. It is CHANGING DATA BINARIES ON RAM! But this is the only way to use the cheats. Many gamers are using this tools, and they are very happy.
Antiviruses seem this unusual because changing data in memory usually is one of the behaviors of viruses.
But, the Cheat Engine changing data because a command of human, not like a virus, virus likes to change data without permission.
So, when you really sure about this thing, ignore antivirus alerts that inform this tool is a virus.
A cheater is also not a real gamer, and real gamers need skills, not cheats.
Now, you just think about this tools, useful or not.
For the people saying that it's a virus and what-not-
Since the Cheat Engine contains drivers that are always running that were distributed by Windows. Most antiviruses detect it as a trojan rootkit since it is only detecting suspicious behavior. The best thing to do to avoid this is to simply stop it from scanning the drivers, or get the retarded idiot download that doesn't have the drivers. (Yes. That is what it is called.)
