Cheat Engine 6.4 is available for download at Cheatengine.org and Tech Radar. Both websites offer the tool for free. It only works on Windows operating systems. Although the application works with online games as well, players may only use it with single player games.
Cheat Engine is an open source application that can modify the rules of video games. In addition, players can use it to debug games and other software. Some of the tools that are available in the application are a memory scanner, a debugger, an assembler and a trainer maker.
In addition, Cheat Engine can manipulate 3D graphics and perform system inspections. If the application detects the DBVM virtual machine in your system, it can offer more advanced features such as redirecting the flow of system events. The developer warns that malicious software can also use DBVM and users must exercise extreme caution when using it. DBVM is only available for Intel processors that support the Intel-VT instruction set.
Using the Cheat Engine in an online game is likely to be against the end user license agreement or the terms of service of the game. As such, you may get banned and have your account terminated. Automated anti-cheat systems, such as Valve's VAC, can find out when you modify the game with a third-party application. The developer suggests using Cheat Engine only in single player games.
Furthermore, courts may consider cheating in online games illegal. Therefore you must only use Cheat Engine in single player games and for debugging purposes.
