So I decided that instead of waiting around or begging someone to make a cheat table, that I would take matters into my own hands and learn how to make cheat tables, how hard could it be? The answer, quite hard.

The game in question that I am working on is Shortest Trip to Earth, which use Unity. I am starting off by editing all the game resources save for fate points. Now, the catch is that I don't want to do infinite resources. What I would like to achieve is a table that allows me to easily set a resource to a given value.

In this game all resources are managed by the PlayerData class. All resources save for credits, it is just a simple field, is managed by PlayerResource class. This class has handy function to set the resource to a given value.

Is there a way I can create a cheat table that finds the PlayerData class and then change the resource values to a given amount that I input.

Well I got somewhere. I went with using pointers to get the address of PlayerData class(idk how stable that is). I started writing up some scripts then my initialize script(called Start) crapped out by saying monopipe was nill. I called `LaunchMonoDataCollector` but at the end the "Activate mono features keep deselecting"

I have no idea what I am doing wrong

Edit Edit:
I have traced the problem to 'mono_method_get_parameters'. Using 'mono_method_getName' returns the right name, so I think that methodId is right.

Edit Edit Edit:
Well I am an idiot and well writing this script completely forgot how pointers worked. With the fixes to get the right address, I got it change the value of the resource, just not to what I inputted.


if syntaxcheck then return end

local offsets = {0x2B0, 0x908, 0x30, 0x58, 0x78, 0x18}

local moduleAddr = getAddress("mono-2.0-bdwgc.dll")
local baseAddr   = moduleAddr + 0x4A3290

local pointerChain = baseAddr
local i
for i=1, #offsets do
  local pointer = readPointer(pointerChain)

  print("P" .. i ..": " .. string.format("%x", pointer))

  pointerChain = pointer + offsets[i]

print("P7: " .. string.format("%x", pointerChain))

playerDataAddr = readPointer(pointerChain)

print("PlayerData Addr: " .. string.format("%x", playerDataAddr))

local methodId = mono_findMethod("Assembly-CSharp", "PlayerResource", "Set")
local params   = mono_method_get_parameters(methodId)

function SetResource(offset, value)
  local args_t = {}

  --- Amount
  args_t[1]    = {}
  args_t[1].type  = monoTypeToVartypeLookup[parms.parameters[1].type]
  args_t[1].value = value

  -- Reason
  args_t[2]    = {}
  args_t[2].type  = monoTypeToVartypeLookup[parms.parameters[2].type]
  args_t[2].value = "Cheat Engine"

  local addr         = playerDataAddr + offset
  local instanceAddr = readPointer(addr)

  print("Instance Addr: " .. string.format("%x", instanceAddr))

  print("Type: " .. args_t[1].type .. " & Value: " .. args_t[1].value)

   local r = mono_invoke_method("Assembly-CSharp", methodId, instanceAddr, args_t)
   return r

function Prompt(resource)
   local response = inputQuery(resource, "Enter " .. resource .. " Amount:", "")

   local value = tonumber(response)
   return value
