Unlike other cheat makers, who modify the game or use the games code as utility for their cheats(dll), and/or inject code(dll) into the target game, instead i have my own software who access the game memory from external, to read data and write data, notice i don't touch the game code not in disk nor in ram, just the data, like positions, healths, etc, nor access any server of the game, no inject nor modify any code, all from external, just accessing game memory, from my own software, using apis, Linux or windows provide, nor using any protected files or game resources to implement my cheat functionality, notice, all i use from the game are offsets that i get doing reverse engineering to it, i am just trying to run closer to the legal line, will be i safe selling this game cheat?

    AFAIK (I am not a lawyer and this is not legal advice, but I am a programmer) the legality of cheating has basically nothing to do with how you do it - whether you load a DLL into a game's process, or access the game's memory from another process. There may be some silly technicality involving copyright law. I also think that cheating is often less illegal than people think it is (which is not to say it isn't an asshole thing to do)

  • FWIW, law.stackexchange.com/questions/25825/… answers the question where you genuinely reverse-engineered the software rather than just learning from random manipulation.
