This Game is difficult to win against the Gark race in some maps
So at times almost banging my keyboard seeing again my ships blown to pieces
I took or made a battleship, which has 1100 shield normally, sending the ship to the hotspot which is normally a teleport spot on the map where the Gark race appears.
Steps to give the battleship some more shield. I am using cheatengine 6.1 for this tutorial.
Always start cheatengine before you start game.
1: Run cheatengine, then the game.
2: Locate a battleship, or build a new one first.
3: Click on battleship, so its stats show on screen.
2: Pauze game,then ALT+TAB In cheatengine, select game process gw.exe ,value 1100 scan type, exact value, value type, float . Click first scan ,a lot addresses will show. Go back in game.
3: Click on the battleship, so its stats show,wait till the battleship gets attacked, and look closely at the number the shield shows in ship window, for example 1098, or a lower number. Quickly pauze game,then ALT+TAB , and in cheatengine do a next scan for 1098 ,or a lower number.
The result should always show 2 addresses.
Note: "It needs some practice to make it indeed showing 2 adresses because the shield value fluctuates very quickly in game".
One address is always the same, the second one is the shield address we need to edit.
4: Change the 1098 into 999999999.
5: Go back into game , and if you did it right you will see that your battleship has 1000000000 shield and is invulnerable.
6: Now in game you can put that battleship on the hotspot And the enemy keeps trying to kill your ship giving you more time to build up your forces in other parts of the map
Of course this also works with other ships you want to try to give more shield
Bad part in all this, you have to do this with every ship seperate, so for instance when you edit a battleship its for that battleship only, all the other battleships stay at 1100 shield
ive did everrything you said , somehow it doesnt work?
Well you can try this:
Before you get attacked click the battleship then alt+tab to cheatengine. Do a first scan for value 1100 for the battleship.
Go back into game and try to destroy the enemy. do this with some more ship so you still have the battleship. then if you still have your battleship look at its shield value then alt+tab to cheatengine and do a next search for that shield value
it should show then 2 adresses, as i mentioned in my tutorial
Only problem is, shields regenerate kind of quick when in battle, thats why i said you need to look closely at the shield number showing, that is when you have the technology to repair shields. else the shields dont repair itself when in battle.
then alt+tab to cheatengine and do a next search to make it show those 2 different addresses.
After the battle is done the ships shields stay at the value it still has left. only when near by a military station the hull gets repaired, but shields never repair. That is ,till you have the technology to repair shields.
hope that works
