Hello guys!
So the other day, i was messing around with CE and pcsx2, and now i want to make a couple of trainers for some ps2 games.
I already found most of the addresses that i need, but i dont understand how i can make a trainer that will change their values.
The addresses are static, and they dont change after i restart pcsx2. So if i understand this correctly, i wont need to mess with pointers.
The basic idea is to make a trainer that can give you infinite ammo for a weapon with the click of a checkbox.
Can somebody give me an example for the code?
Lets say that i want the value of 2013D58C to stay at 50, when the checkbox is checked.
I can just add this address manually on CE and change my ammo number. But a trainer would be nice.
I have some C knowledge, but from what i've seen, it wont help me Razz
I also have some very very basic knowledge of assembly.
Thanks, and sorry for the newbie questions!

edit: please move this thread. posted in this section by accident

You create a form (or use the one that comes from File->"Generate generic trainer lua script from table"), add a checkbox, goto the events tab with that checkbox selected and add an onchange event (click the ...s) and make it look like this
Code:
function CECheckbox1Change(sender)
  getAddressList().getMemoryRecordByDescription("ammo").Active = sender.Checked
end


Then, as long as you have a memory record named "ammo" with the address of the ammo, checking the checkbox on the trainer gui will do the same thing as checking the checkbox on CE's main gui next to the memory record (ie. freeze the value). If you want to set the value at the same time you could use

Code:
function CECheckbox1Change(sender)
  local ammoMemrec = getAddressList().getMemoryRecordByDescription("ammo")
  ammoMemrec.Active = sender.Checked
  if sender.Checked then ammoMemrec.Value = 99 end
end

damn! now i feel stupid.
thanks man! i appreciate it!

edit:

well, i need some more help on making a script Rolling Eyes

so in the game ratchet and clank, you can change the value of an address(2015F6A8) to 4294967295, and you will access the debug menu.
problem is that i dont know how to make the script for it.
so i'm trying to use auto asseble, by first inserting cheat table framework template, and then code injection template.
i added the highlighted line, to change the value(see pic), but when i run the script the value is way off from what i wanted.
i removed tha line that i added, and it still returns the same number in the address value.
what am i missing?

Code:
[ENABLE]
2015F6A8: // address to change
  dw 4294967295 // dword/4-byte value to write
[DISABLE]
2015F6A8:
  dw 0


You can't use assembly code like mov unless you're hooking a function (or creating your own to be called with createThread)

Thanks man!
This works with everything else that dont need such a big number.
But i am still getting a value that is waay off with this one.
Instead of 4294967295, it returns 29333 in the address value.
Sorry for the stupid questions, but i haven't used CE before.

hm, well since 2933 is 7295 in hex that would make sense for a 2 byte value (because for some reason I typed dw (define word) instead of dd (define doubleword)) when 4294967295 was read as hex because I forgot the (int) to tell CE to use decimal/base 10.

so... all my fault, I hadn't even just woken up so no real excuses for that... Embarassed, sorry!

Code:
[ENABLE]
2015F6A8: // address to change
  dd (int)4294967295 // double word/4-byte value to write
[DISABLE]
2015F6A8:
  dd 0
