Hi all! I think it's great (heck, awesome!!!) that there are Wii tainers now. Is there any chance at all that the future may bring at the very least Xbox 360 trainers?

Ah, all right. Can you tell me what the difficulties involved are? 'Cause i mean, it can't be *impossible*.. perhaps simply too difficult and time consuming to be really worth the effort.

I'm nowhere near savvy with this kind of stuff, but as far as I know a PC trainer basically just changes a few numbers in certain files depending on what you ask it to do. Those files are on the hard drive. Since a 360 or PS3 game runs right off the disc you can't do the same thing because the disc data can't be modified.

That might change when games are installed to the consoles hard drive, but I'd assume it's a lot different from a PC hard drive.

Nope..

I do believe there is no 3rd party hardware/software for the 360 that can allow for any memory altering software to be added on the fly, like the Wii can.

Also PC trainers dont change a few numbers in certain files, they change opcodes/values resident in the memory on the fly.

Thanks for the info, guys! Tho since the 360 has usb ports and can take external storage (as long as it's FAT32), my hope is that some day an enterprising programmer will come up with something.

EDIT!
I found a page that seems to detail xbox 360 trainer creation. Anyone know if it works?

Those are for the original XBOX, not the 360.

Oops! Should have read more carefully.

Thanks again for your help and patience.
