Been using cheat engine along time to play around with C64 or Dos games. Never run into anything thats given me trouble before.
I've been playing a browser based casino game, (play chips, no value) when I noticed while playing blackjack an achievment for winning x amount of hands would pop up instantly, no matter how crappy my internet connections was, the instant I stood or doubled on the last hand.
This led me to a series of test to come to the conclusion the wager and banking is done server side, but then the server sends the shuffled deck over and allows the client to evaluate it hand then report a win or loss back to the server, then the server will increase the bankroll by double the bet if you win or not if you lose.
So curious I fire up cheat engine, quickly find the bankroll amount, bet amount no problem, but cannot find a value to match the running total of my hand value. For example I search all value types, im dealt say a 3 and a 4 and there is text showing I have 7.
I hit and say get a 5, text shows 13, hit again 19.
Nothing matches this, I tried the digits separately, and I've tried ASCII values for the digits.
Any ideas how they would do this?
I believe the cards have special values that I can decode if I find my hand value and what writes to it but am totally stumped on the hand value.
Any feedback is very much appreciated.
