Edit: A much easier method is now available in CE 7.0 to do this, see here:

Here is a very simple autorun script to do this. Open Cheat Engine's install folder, open the autorun folder, create a new file called:

Paste and save this into the script:

Process List With Decimal Id (processlistmod.lua)
(c) 2018 atom0s [[email protected]]

A simple autorun script for Cheat Engine 6.8.1 which will alter the process
name list to also include the decimal format of the process id in the names.

Works with 'Applications', 'Processes' and 'Windows' lists to show the decimal
form of each lists entries.

processListTimer = processListTimer or createTimer();
processListTimer.Interval = 500;
processListTimer.OnTimer = function(t)
    -- Loop and find the process window..
    local fcount = getFormCount();
    for x = 0, fcount - 1 do
        local wnd = getForm(x);
        if (wnd ~= nil and string.lower(wnd.getName()) == 'processwindow') then
            -- Find the process list control..
            local lst = wnd.findComponentByName('ProcessList');
            if (lst ~= nil) then
                -- Loop and update the names..
                local names = lst.getItems();
                for y = 0, names.getCount() - 1 do
                    -- Check if the process name has been edited already..
                    -- This will use the known process id in decimal to validate since window titles can have similar text..
                    local pid, name = string.match(names[y], '([A-Fa-f0-9]+)-(.+)');
                    local dec = tonumber(pid, 16);
                    if (string.find(name, '%(' .. tostring(dec) .. '%)') == nil) then
                        names[y] = string.format('%s-(%d)-%s', pid, dec, name);

            -- Finish here since we found the window already..

Restart cheat engine if it's already open, now when the process list window is open, you'll see results like this:

The hex version of the name must be at the front due to how CE opens processes. The name of the process wont show in CE's main window title any longer either due to this mod.
