The advanced Mono features of Cheat Engine are controlled by the "monoscript.lua" script in the ''autorun'' directory where cheat engine is installed.  When you attach to a process, the script scans for "''mono.dll''".  If it is found, the appropriate ''MonoDataDissector'' dll from the ''autorun'' directory is injected into the process which creates a named pipe waiting for a connection.  The LUA code then connects to the pipe and messages are exchanged to perform the mono functions.

This entry needs a lot of work. Please contribute if you can.

Check this page to see if there are some suggestions for adding to Mono:Mono Lua.


The advanced Mono features of Cheat Engine are controlled by the "monoscript.lua" script in the autorun directory where cheat engine is installed. When you attach to a process, the script scans for "mono.dll". If it is found, the appropriate MonoDataDissector dll from the autorun directory is injected into the process which creates a named pipe waiting for a connection. The LUA code then connects to the pipe and messages are exchanged to perform the mono functions.


Main Methods[edit]

LaunchMonoDataCollector()
injects the dll and returns 0 for failure, or monoBase returned from the CMD_INITMONO command on the pipe
varType = monoTypeToVarType(monoType)
Returns the Cheat Engine type (vtString, vtByte, vtWorkd, vtDword, vtSingle, vtDouble, vtPointer) for the given mono type
mono_object_getClass(address)
returns classId, className of the class at the given address in memory
mono_enumDomains()
returns a table array of domainaddress for each domain in the game
mono_setCurrentDomain(domainId)
returns ? (result of MONOCMD_SETCURRENTDOMAIN)
sets the domain the MonoDataCollector will use
mono_enumAssemblies()
returns table of assemblyId for each assembly in the current domain from the MonoDataCollector
mono_getImageFromAssembly(assemblyId)
returns the imageId for the passed assembly
mono_image_get_name(imageId)
returns the name of the assembly with the given imageId
mono_image_enumClasses(imageId)
returns a table of classId for classes in the given assembly image
mono_class_getName(classId)
returns the class name as a string
mono_class_getNamespace(classId)
returns the namespace of the given class as a string
mono_class_getParent(classId)
returns the classId of the parent class of the given class
mono_class_getStaticFieldAddress(domainId, classId)
returns the base address for a special area that stores static addresses for a given class. For example if you have a class that has 5 static fields, their offsets will be added to this base address to get the memory location
mono_class_enumFields(classId)
returns a table of field objects for fields in the given class
field - the field id
type - ?? the Cheat Engine type? (i.e. vtByte, vtWord, vtString, etc?)
monotype - ?? the mono type?
parent - ?? the class id?
offset - the offset in bytes from the structure base address
flags - ??
isStatic - true/false - if true, offset is into static address, use mono_class_getStaticFieldAddress
name - field name
typename - name of the type with namespace (i.e. "System.Int32")
mono_class_enumMethods(classId)
returns a table of method objects for the methods in the given class
method - method id
name - string name of the method
mono_getJitInfo(address)
returns a result object with the properties given the address of code in memory
method - the method id
code_start - address where method code begins
code_size - length of code in bytes
mono_image_findClass(imageId, namespace, className)
returns the classId of the given class name and namespace in an image

Lets you invoke a method with the given arguments. args is a tablearray of record with value and type

Cheat Engine Hooks[edit]

mono_initialize()
sets up hooks, calls old open process hook if there was one, calls syncrhonize("mono_OpenProcessMT")
mono_OpenProcessMT(t)
if parameter is not nil, calls t.destroy(), enumerates modules looking for 'mono.dll', adds menu item to cheat engine main form
mono_OpenProcess(processid)

Called by CE when a structure is being dissected to fill in the values if we know the structure
Returns true if the structure members were defined, nil if not
Calls mono_object_findRealStartOfObject(baseaddress), mono_class_enumFields(classaddress), monoTypeToVarType(monotype)
mono_structureNameLookupCallback(address)
Returns classname,currentaddress (the real base address) or nil
Called by CE when creating a new structure in the structure dissector
mono_symbolLookupCallback(symbol)
returns pointer or nil
called by CE when it is trying to find the address to go with a symbol
calls mono_findMethod and mono_compile_method
