GameConqueror 0.09 -- Linux Game Hacking Tool

If you are a game hacker
If you've been looking for a CheatEngine for Linux

Then you can't miss this.

==============================================

GameConqueror is a game hacking tool for linux, it's written in PyGTK and uses scanmem as its backend.

It's supposed to be with most useful features of CheatEngine for Linux.

Currently, I've implemented almost everything about scanning, involving variant data types and scan types:

Data Types: int{8/16/32/64}, float{32/64}, unknown type(int or float) and unknown width(will try each of them), byte array and string
Scan Types: equal, greater, less, changed, unchanged, increased(by), decreased(by)

This should be enough for most cases, so I decided to release it at the current status.

=============================================

Here's how you can get it

PPA (for Ubuntu users)
(I've not test it in 32bit environments or Jaunty, do please inform me if it doesn't work)

SVN

Homepage:
make sure you selected the correct version 0.09

You'll need python and python-gtk to run it, and to build it from source code, you'll need libreadline (this should have been installed for most of you)

=============================================

NOTE THAT GAMECONQUEROR MAY CRASH YOUR PROGRAM DUE TO BUGS OR IMPROPERLY USAGE, DO BACKUP YOUR PROGRESS BEFOREHAND.

To use it, actually I've created a menu item, which could be found in the 'Games' category, or you can run it by executing gameconqueror, and please do this in a terminal (see below)

Read the tooltip of the label 'Value' to get familiar with the syntax

About the annoying terminal window, now this is the only place where you can see the progress of scanning, and the error message if something goes wrong. This terrible thing is basically because I've mainly focused on the features of scanmem so far, and I'll fix this in the next version.

=============================================

What will be added in the next (or maybe future) version:

- better ui (progress bar, error message, user interaction, etc...)
- search for pointers
- optional float rounding method
- memory viewer/editor

and what will not be added
- speed hack (I've no idea about how to implement this in Linux, can anyone tell me plz?)
- disassembler
- many other too powerful features in CheatEngine

any feedbacks will be appreciated.
