Hi! need some help....


I'm trying to make an in-game menu. This is a window which pops up when you are running the game...

For ex:
User is playing starcraft. He presses F11. A window should pop up. In that window is listed the cheatcodes for starcraft. When a user double clicks on an item, the window closes and the cheat is automatically typed into the game. All the user has to do now is to press enter and the cheatcode is in!

So.... how do i do that?
Thanx in advance.

Perhaps you should take a look at http://www.gamehacking.com/ ?

In-game menus probably wont be too easy - DirectDraw will already
be in exclusive mode, so you will be denied exclusive mode in your
trainer. You can probably obtain their DirectDraw object though,
and use that for access...

As for manually typing in a cheat: bleh. How lame is THAT.

Actually, that is what in game menus are for.

Nah, ingame menus are for activating/deactivating trainer features,
not for automating normal game cheatcodes.

yes i agree with f0dder. auto cheat input is a trainer feature anyway.

Tsongkie,

Something you can do is pull the plug on posting your URL until it has NO reference to trojan programming whatsoever. You may not have any problems in the Phillipines but many places in the world consider that such info is illegal and we cannot have this forum associated in any way with trojan programming.

What we need you to do is remove the URL until you remove the trojan reference from it.

Regards,
