Er...This is a confusing question,i search Google and it says it has virus's and stuff.And the terms dont look user-friendly.Im not saying im gonna use it im just wondering.So confusing,so illegal.So this simple question is:

Is Cheat Engine illegal or not??

 

I heard people got virus's on it and people say its awesome,it doesnt look say with me.And my AVG Linkscanner scanned the cheat engine link and it says it has no threats.Weird isin't it?

 

I'm so confused! And plus,if it IS illegal,i may report it to somewhere...Even though if it is popular,why people using it for Runescape cheats,and other MMORPG cheats??

 

What is it mean't to be used for anyway?? File management?? What kind of games you can cheat on??

I know hacking IS illegal,even though leaders of USA dont surf the web much.Just asking a yes or no question.And i did a poll,so i dont have to read ur replies,but the replies just details what ur saying,so...Reply!!

 

Er...

OMG!! It looks illegal,it sounds illegal,it's use is illegal.How much doubt is there for the part where people say "It's not illegal"?

 

Eh??

 

 

 

 

So...Reply Anyway! =)

Please describe for the use of the engine. =( I feel nervous,cause it may have a secret virus,very sneaky....

It isn't illegal. Sure it breaks the end user license agreement of any game you play, but that's not technically illegal.

 

Unethical for sure.

How would I know? :rolleyes:

 

Basic thought processes, that's how. The EULA of every game says that modifying the game and using it to an unfair advantage is prohibited and that if you do it they can ban you, but they can't sue you because of it, making it not illegal.

Ok so...The illegal thing is done,so...Er..

 

The virus part.Thats a trickly one,and as i said,the cheat engine terms aint user-friendly,i didnt understand it so...If possible,and this is opinial,give me a picture of the cheat engine terms.But you dont have too.Some people say it has virus's in it from a different site.And one time someone told me about that they use this cheat engine toolbar,if they click on something it opens up a window and shows porn,he tried exiting it but he was cuzzed from the messeges,he kept pressing OK but it seemed like a loop,he forced his computer off.He said he got it from plunder.com,he also says that he saw the comments they rated it great,and others say "How do you use it??"

 

So anyway,im guessing other people makes fake cheat engines and put in virus's in it.

It's open source meaning anyone can compile and edit it, so yes it is possible to download it from somewhere else and get a virus from it. The download from the official website looks safe to me. If it asks for you to install the toolbar, don't. Toolbars are never good to have anyways and sometimes have bad stuff.

So ur saying the cheat engine toolbars are bad? Is it legal to use the engine on online and non-online games without the terms? Such as: Boxhead:The Zombie Wars

Dude enough with the the legal stuff. I dare you to find a law that says "no cheats allowed in online games". The cops aren't going to come to your house because you're doing it, the worst thing is that you get banned.

 

But people who use cheats are muppetbags.

Cheat engine doesn't work on RuneScape.

 

You will get banned for a cheating attempt though.

You can't use it for online mmo's, as the data is stored by them.

other flash games use your cache to store thing, and this is what cheat engine edits.

Therefore you are only cheating yourself, and most of the time you can't gain anything out of it because most online leaderboards are monitored for cheats like this.

It's not illegal, and it can't be used for anything illegal.

As for the viruses, I've used it in the past and it's been virus free.

I believe it's legal on RuneScape, since Cheat Engine probably won't be able to do anything member-related. All hacking is legal unless used for purposes that would normally cost money. At least, that's what I heard.

If used for online games yes, but that's jut my opinion. I don't think everyone will have the same one.

What this man said.

 

If you used it to hack something in a game that you would need to pay real life money for (e.g. Jagex Credits or whatever they are in War of Legends) then it's illegal as you are technically stealing.

 

Instead of asking Sal's for legal advice, why don't you call your local cop shop, write a letter to the local Judge or maybe enlist the aid of a lawyer? :rolleyes:

It's not illegal if you stay within the game. If you are manipulating a(n)-currency, ammunition, energy, stamina, health, and what not, that can only be gained and lost while playing the game, it might get you some dirty looks, maybe get you banned, but it certainly isn't illegal. BUT if you are manipulating something that has a real life value, (favor points, gems, credits, and other stuff) then it might get you into trouble.

 

Viruses-Yes, you could get one if you get a copy of Cheat engine that someone has tampered with. So if you're looking for a copy, always search for it first.

 

And also Cheat Engine 5.6 came out a few months ago. If anyone else is still advertising Cheat Engine 5.4 or 5.5, then there is a chance it has been tampered with and has a virus.

 

PS:You can't use Cheat engine on RS for gain. Sure the value of the money may have looked like it had gone up, but it's still the same value. So only good for pictures.

 

What is it mean't to be used for anyway?? File management?? What kind of games you can cheat on??

What kinds of games can you cheat on? Mostly flash games, some others too. Fun fact-Cheat engine can be used on Roller Coaster Tycoon 3. I tried.

 

Um...Well, yeah LEADERS of the USA don't surf much. Mostly secret governments agencies. But I'm betting they won't come knocking down my door if I hack some random flash game on the internet. There are just too many of them to keep watch on everything on the internet. And I bet watching flash games are low on their priority list.
