I want to create a button or image in game, and I found this tutorial by Dark Byte (http://forum.cheatengine.org/viewtopic.php?t=552281). However, after I enabled d3d hook and copied the code from DB's post, nothing happened when I clicked "Execute script" in the Lua script window. I changed nothing in the code example.

Did I do something wrong?

Are you sure the game is using DirectX?

Try this

Code:
D3D   = createD3DHook()
BtImg = createPicture()
BtImg.loadFromFile(button_image) -- path or var containing your image
BtTex = D3D.createTexture(BtImg)
BtSpr = D3D.createSprite(BtTex)

BtSpr.x = 1
BtSpr.y = 1

D3D.OnClick = function()
  -- do stuff
end

Yes, I double checked it, it uses DirectX 9.0c.

Do I have to do anything else other than copy and paste your code to the LUA Script window? Your code does not work, just like DB's. Sad

The game is a single player game on steam, and I put it into window mode when I play it.

BTW, I don't know if this matters, the "set custom crosshair" function also does not work, but the "lock mouse in game window" function does work.

Update:
Well, the image did show up. However, it only showed up when I selected a sub menu, like opening an inventory or something. It did not show on the main menu, which is strange. The image was always there, because when I clicked that area, the OnClick function is triggered. It was just not visible, like something blocked it or was on top of it, or different layers, etc... I can only guess...

You must activate D3D Hook as soon as the game is started, if you enter a match or mission, D3D Hook will no longer work.

that shouldn't matter.

but it's possible it uses some weird rendering technique.

@Dark Byte
@Filipe_Br

Thank you all. I think what DB said is probably the right answer.
