aobscan doesn't seem to work in auto-assembler.

This code fails to find the array of bytes:

Code:

[ENABLE]
aobscan(foo, C3)

[DISABLE]



However the code in memory contains a lot of returns, so shouldn't it work?

Thanks, the code has most likely not been uncommented yet. I'll check that out next time i launch my vmware with mac.

I also found a bug that if you attach to a process (in my case Flash Plugin in Chrome) and it crashes, CE will hang when you open the process select window.

"Find memory" and "Find assembly code" doesn't work either in Memory View and nothing happens when clicking the menus.

More stuff to improve:

The App icon is currently the Lazarus one before it is launched. This is annoying especially if you have CE in your dock.
To change icon replace "cheatengine-i386.app/Contents/Resources/lazarus.icns" with an icns file of CE's icon.
You can create a icns file with Icon Composer, which comes with can be downloaded from apple developer site (not included with Xcode anymore).
You can also make an icns file using the "sips" tool:
Code:
sips -s format icns /path/to/cheatengine.ico  --out cheatengine.icns


I have created one however I can't add an icns file as an attachment or add a zip file containing it.

Also currently all the Resources is located besides the cheatengine-i386.app, when normal apps have all their non-changing resources located inside them.

So instead of this structure:
Code:
cheatengine-i1386.app/
   Contents/
      Info.plist
      MacOS/
         cheatengine-i1386 (symlink to ../../../cheatengine-i386)
      PkgInfo
      Resources/
         lazarus.icns

cheatengine-i1386
defines.lua
liblua5.1.dylib
libspeedhack-i386.dylib
main.lua
x


You should probably put them all of the last ones inside the app, probably in the Resources folder inside the app and replace the symlink inside MacOS with the real version.

Another thing, is that currently all shortcuts in CE are using control, when the normally used modifier key for shortcuts in Mac OS X is command.

For example copy is control-C on windows, but on Mac OS X it is command-C in standard applications.

Hey dark byte,

thanks for creating the port to mac. But I've been trying to make it working with The Binding of Isaac and it doesn't work. I'm kind of a noob to this stuff, but do you think you know the problem?

Since I've got my hackintosh back up and running! Very Happy (lol it got water damaged and I took the whole thing apart messed around with the motherboard PCB connecting random things together and SHOCKED! it back into working somehow) LOL

See here when I first got it to boot up again Very Happy
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qeuKMviCrE


So I suppose I could help with this project!

Though I'm so used to OpenProcess + Read/WriteProcessMemory API's on windows that I wouldn't even know where to begin for similar API's on mac!!!

Anyone have any information on what API's to use on mac... They will probably be prefixed with 'NS' because mac likes to use that for its' API's/objects (NSThread, NSString, etc...)

This is starting to look promising though! Very Happy

You need to use `mach_vm_read` and `mach_vm_write`, etc.

I have created a github repo where I used these to make an aobscan script: github.com/Tyilo/aboscan

For making aobscan work in autoassemble scripts, it should be noted that all executing code in Mac OS X is by default marked as non-writable (r-x) instead of (rwx), so aobscan should probably by default search for non-writable sections.

the AA aobscan command normally scans for R** memory (manual memoryscan for values does skip readonly memory by default)

I wanted to check it out, but I updated vmware so my mac osx install won't work anymore. (again, apple being an ass, luckily I have backups)
But since I can't be bothered to hack my legit vmware install and don't want to buy a mac, I probably won't be spending much time on this for now

Can't you use this way of installing OS X in Virtualbox:
macbreaker*com/2013/01/iatkos-ml2-mountain-lion-virtualbox*html ?
(replace * with .)

If not or you have lost interest, would it be possible to release the source code?

If you wish to see the source: the november 2011 source can be found here: http://cheatengine.org/ce6.zip (it's based on a pre-release of ce 6.0)
(the april 2012 is on the mac vmware disk, not much different though)

things of interest:
macport.pas : winapi emulation to mac(ho)
macportdefines.pas: Structures and defines I ported from the dev .h files
macsymbolenum.pas: Symbolname lookup. (doesn't seem to work properly, which is why speedhack fails. And this version doesn't have speedhack implemented I think)
macexceptiondebuggerinterface.pas: The layer between ce's debugger and the operating system

When compiling with Lazarus I get the following error:
Code:
Structuresfrm.pas(135,38) Error: Illegal expression


The line is the one containing
Code:
child: tstructure;
in the following code:

Code:

  //TfrmStructures = class;
  Tstructure=class
  private
    //frmStructures: TfrmStructures; //obsolete
    treeviewused: ttreeview;
    addresses: array of ptrUint;
    basestructure: integer;
    parentnode: ttreenode; //owner of this object
    objects: array of record //same size as the structelement of the base object
                        nodetoupdate: ttreenode; //same size as the structelement of the base object
                        child: tstructure; //if it is a pointer then this points to the structure that defines it
                        //currentvalue: string; //obsolete, just get it on request
                      end;     


Do you know what could be wrong?[/code]

The new fpc doesn't support references to itself without first declaring it
Change the code so it looks like his:
Code:

Tstructure=class:
Tstructure=class
private
...


There are lots of other compiler issues as well

If you encounter avgltree errors, it's most likely due to a custom memory manager which has been removed in fpc. Just remove the parts where it sets up the memoryhandler (commenting the line works fine)

After two other minor tweaks I got it to compile, thank you.

Yo Dark, I still don't know how to use the speedhack in CE... ._.
The instructions are too complicated for me, I have no knowledge about anything >.<
