I've started playing HW2 again and so I've decided to start hacking it (maybe this time I'll make a trainer) ...

I've managed to find out that actually 1RU = 1024 thus if you have 1000 RU you'd have to search for 1024000 (4 Byte search)
The trick is that after you burn some RU the value is stored in a float 955.931640625, but the game only displays 955. So when you try to do a filter search you do 955*1024 = 977920 and that's wrong because the actual value is 955.931640625*1024 = 978874.

So basically here's wot you do:

1)Start the game and get the RU value I'll take 1000 as a example.
2)1000*1024 = 1024000
3)In CE(cheatengine.org) do a 4 byte search for 1024000
4)Go ingame and burn some RU
5)In CheatEngine do a "Changed value" search you should come up with 1 entry, if not continue using "Change value" or "Unchanged value" search.

I usually find it very easy as there are only a few entry's left even after the first search, freaze the value and your good to go ( unlike the trainers you well be the only one with Unl RU and the AI will be significantly weaker )

Thank you so much mate, got this from metaboli.co.uk so none of the trainers work on it (lost the original CD years ago!).
