What are the most popular trainer writing tools for a modern Win7/8 platform?

Both something to look for the proper memory locations, and something to write the tool itself.

If you are looking for an easy method, you won't find one, but Cheatengine can check for values etc, and build a trainer.

But it isn't going to be easy if you have knowledge of Assembly, or how games use code shifting and DMA methods.

Well, I used to be pretty good at 6502 and Z80 assembly back in the day. I've never used x86 assembly, but this might be a good opportunity to learn.

By code shifting, do you mean adding a value to an opcode to make the disassembly into nonsense?

I understand the principles of DMA since I did some device driver coding for the Linux kernel, but I've never done low level programming on an MS Windows platform.

I figured this might be a nice educational project for me. I used to tinker a lot on Apple 2+/2e and Linux, but never really tinkered much on MS Windows on x86 hardware.

Many thanks for the tip. I'll check it out.
