Hi all
i have been having this annoying problem. I can change th value of an memory address. the problem is tha the memory address changes every time the application restarts. Now i figured i would need to use a pointer. So i found a pointer that points to this address, but it has an offset.

lets say the address is: "04A96990"
and the offset is: "A0"
and lets say this points to...:"07b96964" // this is the address i want to modify.

How might one change this code to make it take advantage of the pointer and find the address and be able to modify it.

#include <windows.h>
#include <tlhelp32.h>
#include <conio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>

bool ChangeMemVal(const char * ProcessName, LPVOID MemAddress, int NewVal, int size);

int main()
     printf("=== Pinball Trainer Example. Made by <your name here> ===\n\n");
     if(ChangeMemVal("PINBALL.EXE", (void*) 0xA90C62, 100000000, 4))
          printf("The score has been edited successfully.\n");
          printf("An error occured while attempting edit the score.\n");
     return 0;

/* This function modifys a memory address according to its arguments.
   Arguments :
             ProcessName - the process we want to modify
             MemAddress - the memory address we want to modify
             NewVal - the value we want to change the memory address to
             size - the size of the memory address
   Returns :
           the success of the edit.

bool ChangeMemVal(const char * ProcessName, LPVOID MemAddress, int NewVal, int size)
     HANDLE hProcessSnap;
     HANDLE hProcess = NULL;
     PROCESSENTRY32 pe32;    
     hProcessSnap = CreateToolhelp32Snapshot( TH32CS_SNAPPROCESS, 0 );
     pe32.dwSize = sizeof( PROCESSENTRY32 );
     Process32First(hProcessSnap, &pe32);
          if(!strcmp(pe32.szExeFile, ProcessName))
               hProcess = OpenProcess(PROCESS_ALL_ACCESS, FALSE, pe32.th32ProcessID);
     while(Process32Next(hProcessSnap, &pe32));
     CloseHandle( hProcessSnap );
     if(hProcess != NULL)
          WriteProcessMemory(hProcess, MemAddress, &NewVal, size, NULL);     // write the value          
          return true;
     return false;

Help would be greately apreciated.


If you have (void*) pointer p to byte-addressable memory then you can add byte offset A0 to it with a very simple expression:

p = (char*)p + 0xA0;

Dirty job, eh?..

No not really, i am just making an improvement :-)
I tried to track down authur to ask for source code but was un able to do so.

Thank you soo much! i have been looking for this for months!


It's nothing to what I saw in C and C++ ;)...
Good luck!
