Have a game that remains functional w/o data on/internet connection, though some options get locked (don't care about those). It's clearly autosaving game data as it remains correct after rebooting Blue Stack (BS) w/ firewall blocked.

If I attach PC variant of CE, I can attach to the game agent (or whatever it is) of BS, and it'll pause the game while searching (none of the other BS threads seems to pause as there's like 6 total). Found values that change when in-game changes are made, but nothing I do in CE affects anything (no internet so not a server-side issue).

I've used CE with actual game emulators in the past w/o too much issue (PCSX2,pcsxr, etc. etc.) but no luck with Blue Stack? Blue Stack is completely rooted too fwirw. Not trying to unlock things you need to "buy" either. Just trying to up a value a bit to make a few rounds more bearable (I mean passable). Game is single player.

So, looks like .apk stuff can get more involved than it would with strictly x86 games, and devs often lock-down the .apk games more so in subsequent updates.

Regardless, was able to use "GameGuardian" on an older release with success, though GG is NOT as intuitive as CE, and depending on the methods needed, definitely harder to find values that take 2 seconds with CE in a PC environment.

for blue stacks you need to attach cheat engine to HD-player proccese.

some of the games have some encryption to values. try to scan allfor
unknown then filter using changes.

Yeah, I used the freeze when scanning to come up with HD Player process. Was able to find the values, but CE couldn't freeze them nor alter them (offline) even when changing/freezing all at once.

Got lucky and found a video where some values were changed, but they were using an older version of the game with GG.

then probably the game have encrypted these values to protect the game .

you can still find them if you search for unknown . filter the results using changed and unchanged method .

if that didn't work ( i have seen some smart developers that changes the address pointer each time the values changes . in that case you will need to recompile the game and edit such functions . )

This is probably one of those such games given there's nothing recent online for getting into it. No worries.
