Trainer

From Wiki4Games
Jump to: navigation, search

Game trainers are programs made to modify the behavior of a computer game, usually using addresses and values, in order to allow cheating. It can freeze memory addresses, preventing the game from lowering or changing the information stored at that memory address, for instance a health or ammunition meter. It simply manipulates the data at the memory addresses specified to suit the needs of the person cheating at the game. These methods of cheating are often less reliable than cheat codes included into a game by its creators: certain programming styles or quirks of internal game logic, different release versions of a game, or even using the same game at different times or on different hardware, may result in different memory usage and hence the trainer program might have no effect, or even crash the game.

Due to the way trainers work (editing memory locations, etc.) and/or due to the way they are programmed (for instance some trainers "borrow" code from real keyloggers[1]), they are often erroneously detected as a threat by antivirus software.

The trainers available on Wiki4Games are listed in Category:Trainers.
