Cheat Engine comes with an extensive set of Lua functions you can use inside cheat tables, trainers and standalone scripts.


Variables[edit]

Globals[edit]

  • TrainerOrigin: A variable that contains the path of the trainer that launched cheat engine (Only set when launched as a trainer)
  • process: A variable that contains the main modulename of the currently opened process
  • MainForm: The main Cheat Engine gui
  • AddressList: The address list of the main Cheat Engine gui

Variables[edit]

  • Debug Variables
    • EFLAGS
    • 32/64-bit: EAX, EBX, ECX, EDX, EDI, ESI, EBP, ESP, EIP
    • 64-bit only: RAX, RBX, RCX, RDX, RDI, RSI, RBP, RSP, RIP, R8, R9, R10, R11, R12, R13, R14, R15 : The value of the register

Functions[edit]

These functions help manage the cheat table.

Trainers[edit]


Protection[edit]

  • activateProtection: Prevents basic memory scanners from opening the cheat engine process
  • enableDRM: Prevents normal memory scanners from reading the Cheat Engine process (kernelmode)
  • encodeFunction: Converts a given function into an encoded string that you can pass on to decodeFunction
  • decodeFunction: Converts an encoded string back into a function


Scanning[edit]

These functions control Cheat Engine's scanning.


Process[edit]


Threads[edit]

  • getCPUCount: Returns the number of CPU's
  • getThreadlist: Fills a List object with the threadlist of the currently opened process

Addresses[edit]

These functions help convert between memory addresses and symbols/CEAddressStrings.

  • readFloat: Reads a single precision floating point value from the specified address
  • readDouble: Reads a double precision floating point value from the specified address
  • readString: Reads a string from memory until it hits a 0-terminator. maxlength is just so you won't freeze for too long
  • readRegionFromFile: Writes the given file to a specific address


Writing[edit]
