I was wondering if it is possible to open nfo file through trainer (like from a About button)
I already have made .nfo file of the trainer note and everything just need them to open like other people have(in patch, crack, etc)
Any help?

I imagine you can just pass the filepath to shellExecute like you would for a url and have the OS handle opening it with the default program... untested however.

if the .nfo is inside the .EXE use the getCheatEngineDir() function to get the path to the extracted CE folder

if the .nfo is next to the .EXE use the TrainerOrigin variable to get the path to the .exe trainer

once you have the path you can do something like:
Code:

shellExecute('notepad', pathtofile)



--

if it's inside the table itself, use a form with a memory field, just put the contents of the .nfo in there and show that

Thanks for replying and is this code correct?
Code:

a = getCheatEngineDir(trainerprocess.exe)

Then what do i put in shellExecute? You have said pathfile can you show example of it? Very Happy

i got that info from wiki .i dont know much but as i look at DB's code I know that the file will be executed with notepad(which looks like edited text) is there some other app/plugin that can just open nfo file? as read only

getCheatEngineDir doesn't take any arguments it simply returns where the real trainer files got extracted to (the EXE CE generates is essentially a self-extracting archive containing the actual exe trainer and the files it needs to run)

Quote:

shellExecute('notepad', the path to the file)

a simple test of

Code:
local cepath = getCheatEngineDir()
print(cepath)
local filepath = cepath .. 'test.nfo'
print(filepath)


gets you something like
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\cetrainers\CETB9EE.tmp\extracted\
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\cetrainers\CETB9EE.tmp\extracted\test.nfo

so now you have the path to the file and you know what to do with it right? yeah, pass it to shellExecute

shellExecute('notepad', filepath)

of course, you'd take out the prints once you're done testing. Just make sure you actually add the file when you generate the trainer or it won't exist Smile


as for other programs... not sure of anything that you can be confident of existing... maybe run cmd with the type command... something like shellExecute('cmd', ('/c type "%s" & pause'):format(filepath)), of course you could just show a form with a readonly (and probably scrollable) "memo" displaying the contents eg ( https://github.com/FreeER/CE-Examples/tree/master/LoadingFiles )

Code:
local cepath = getCheatEngineDir()
local filepath = cepath .. 'test.nfo'

local f = io.open(filepath, 'r')
CETrainer.CEMemo1.Lines.Text = f:read('*all')
f:close()

Store / write the data in the cetriner.
then give him a record file path.
then recall it with a recall / button!

Code:

function getTrainerRealPath1()
local t
t= os.getenv("Temp") .. "\\cetrainers";
return t
end
function SaveSettings()
if MyPath then
settingsFile = os.rename(MyPath.."\\File.txt",MyPath.."\\Info_File.txt")
if (settingsFile == nil) then
settingsFil = io.open(MyPath.."\\Info_File.txt", "a+")
settingsFil:write(info_files)
control_setCaption(UDF1_CEMemo1, info_file)
info_file=info_files
settingsFil:close()
end
MyLoadSettings()
end
end
function MyLoadSettings(sender)
if MyPath then
settingsFile = io.open(MyPath.."\\Info.txt", "r+")
if (settingsFile ~= nil) then
new_files=settingsFile:read("*all")
control_setCaption(UDF1_CEMemo1, settingsFile:read("*all"))
settingsFile:close()
control_setCaption(UDF1_CEMemo1, info)
end
end
end
function MySaveSettings()
if MyPath then
string= control_getCaption(UDF1_CEEdit1)
if ( string == "" ) then
messageDialog( "bla..bla..", 4, 2 );
MyLoadSettings()
return false
end


Correction is possible in this code. you are the master. Smile

Yeah you can write the file with lua's file handling utilities and then follow the same steps as above to open it

@Aylin purely because you named the functions with the word "Settings" which would presumably be user changeable (at least within the trainer) I wouldn't suggest using the cetrainers folder for 2 reasons

1. It's in the temp directory so it'll presumably be deleted at some point, possibly before the user is done using the trainer. It'd probably be annoying to set things up the way you wanted and then have all your settings lost because windows decided to free up some space or they ran ccleaner etc.
2. If it's possible for any settings to break the trainer (invalid resolution, filepaths, etc.) then the user may not know how to find the settings file to delete it and get back to the defaults if it's off in the temp directory. If you use TrainerOrigin then it'll be created right next to the trainer executable that the user clicks on to launch it.

As for getTrainerRealPath1 just be aware that someone could create a custom version of CE that uses a different folder and breaks this (perhaps there's some anticheat out there that creates that folder and makes it read only or checks for exes launched out of it) Smile
Just something to be aware of when you choose to hardcode things instead of using given functions. Same applies to the code I wrote since it depends on "cetrainers" but I know that I was aware of it at the time so Smile
