Hey again,

I am very new to coding and game hacking so please try to help me with not too much complexity. I have some questions below:

1) When coding my game hacks I used to just code everything in one code, all in the main.cpp - Where I have learnt this is not good to do when your code becomes longer. I have researched on header files but don't know if I should make everything all in seperate header files?

2) Lets say I want to make a variable for game address and offsets, should these be in its own header file?

3) Also what should I do if I want to split these up into their own groups and sections? Like all the codes for Triggerbot, all the codes for wall hacks, all the codes for bunny hop etc. How should I split these up instead of writing it all in main?

1. The end result is ultimately up to you and just preference. Breaking things into separate code is not a requirement or anything, and is nothing more than personal preference in what you prefer to do with your code.

It helps make things cleaner and easier to read for others if you plan to release and share the code.

2. It can be easier to manage the data if you place them inside of a header file as macro defines, such as:
Code:

#define GAMEBASE_MODULE_NAME    "Game.dll"
#define GAMEBASE_OFFSET         0x12345
#define PLAYER_HEALTH_OFFSET    0x123
#define PLAYER_MANA_OFFSET      0x321


But again, not a requirement, just preference and up to you. You can do these in the main file just the same and it will work fine.

3. You may want to look into using classes if you wish to break things apart more in-depth and using multiple files. You can then use things in separated files such as:
TriggerBot.h/TriggerBot.cpp
WallHack.h/WallHack.cpp

and so on, where each thing is its own class.
