Create, use or share cheats for offline single-player games with Cheat Engine

Cheat Engine is an open-source memory scanner and debugger that can modify single-player games. Cheat Engine is free to download and features the ability to change certain values in games that modify health, ammo, score, lives, money, etc. Depending on the user’s choice, this can make the game harder or easier. In some games, it can also unlock hidden features and items.

Cheat Engine also has extra features that make it a useful tool for programmers and software analysts. Cheat Engine has extensive scripting support which allows developers to create their own applications and even share them with others.

One thing to note is that Cheat Engine is not designed to modify online games. Since the server knows your entire progress, editing/modifying the values to change those things will have no effect and can probably get you banned. Other than that Cheat Engine is fully safe to use as long as you’re using it according to the given instructions.


Cheat Engine can perform a lot of functions, below mentioned are some of its most important features:

  • Memory Scanning: Scans the memory of a running process for specific values.
  • Value Modification: Allows modification of the scanned values to get you unlimited health, money, etc.
  • Cheat Tables: Pre-made cheat engine files that can act as a trainer for games.
  • Trainer Maker: Allows the creation of trainers via the Cheat Engine and sharing them with others.
  • Lua scripting: Lua scripting allows you to create custom cheats or to automate tasks like picking up a game process when its “.CT” file is loaded.
  • Debugger: Includes debugger that can be used to debug cheat tables or find the code that controls the game state.

How to Use Cheat Engine

Cheat Engine isn’t an easy app to use and is even harder to master. So, the dev includes a built-in tutorial with Cheat Engine. Upon the first launch, you will see instructions on how to get started with Cheat Engine. Additionally, you can visit this official Cheat Engine forum page for a detailed tutorial with pictures.

If you’re just interested in using Cheat Engine in games to gain an advantage, then we suggest using cheat tables (.CT file). Cheat Table (.CT) files are trainers for games made with and for Cheat Engine by other users. Given below is an example of how to modify Elden Ring with Cheat Engine using “.CT” file.

How to Disable Easy Anti Cheat (EAC)

Before we show you how to use the (.CT) file, it is necessary to know that some games ship with Easy Anti Cheat. These games cannot be modified or tampered with unless Easy Anti Cheat is disabled. Elden Ring is among one of those games.

Disabling Easy Anti Cheat in Elden Ring

Step 1: Go to the Steam library location where you installed Elden Ring, It’ll be in “Steamapps > ELDEN RING > game”
Step 2: Rename start_protected_game.exe to something else and make a copy of elden_ring.exe
Step 3: Rename this newly made copy to start_protected_game.exe and run the game through Steam as normal.

Note: Disabling Easy Anti Cheat may be different for other games, so look up how to do that before you modify them with Cheat Engine.

How to Use Cheat Table (.CT) for Elden Ring

Once Easy Anti Cheat is disabled, you can now proceed to use the “.CT” file to modify Elden Ring with Cheat Engine. See the steps below to do that:

Step 1: Download the desired .CT file and open it (with Cheat Engine).

Step 2: Click the PC icon in the top left corner and select the game process that the .CT file is for. (If Lua Scripts are used then the game process will be selected automatically)

Step 3: Once the game process is selected, you can activate the trainer options by checking the boxes or changing the values in the bottom list.

Step 4: Check in-game to see if the modifications are working.

How to Uninstall Cheat Engine

You can uninstall Cheat Engine through the Add or Remove Programs menu, simply click Uninstall in the Add or Remove Programs window and follow the uninstaller’s instructions.
