Very dirty programming is needed because the cheat program and the game live in separate virtual address spaces.
I will not help you because i am against game cheating.

You could look through all of the physical ram using this dll/sys
it's freeware and will let you read/change any memory byte...

You would have to search for the bytes in physical ram that hold the
program you are interested in... then alter the bytes...
It should work...theoretically... I have never tried such a
thing ... I have a delphi unit that makes this code easier
to use... if you need it I can post it or email it to you...

I think that Mashi has some code to gain access to another process's
memory... If he sees this Q maybe he will show you how to do it
more directly than searching through physical ram :-)

The functions you should use are VirtualQueryEx and ReadProcessMemory. But it needs a lot of debugging, trying and guessing to find what you need...   :-(
