Getting started with NOX emulator and Cheat Engine
Cheat engine, or CE, is free memory scanner and debugger, mostly used by gamers for cheating games. CE was made by Eric Heijnen for Windows OS. It finds user provided value in computer’s memory, and allow user to change it.
There is not worthy replacement for this software on Android OS, so we will have to setup Android emulator on Windows. That way, we can use Cheat Engine in Android games.
Here you can see how to use Cheat Engine in Nox.
Let’s get started.
Installing NOX App Player
For this step, there are no any advanced tips. Just download Nox app player from their official site (LINK), and follow the steps.
Next, next, next, finish.
When you start it, you should see something like this.
In settings, you can choose do you want tablet or phone appearance, but that is not important right now.
After this, we are ready for the next step, installing Cheat Engine.
Using Cheat Engine in Nox App Player
Again, installing CE is simple. If you don’t have it already, download latest version from their official site (LINK).
As in previous step, just click on next until CE is installed. The most important step now is to configure CE so it can read from virtual machine memory (NOX App Player).
First open CE, click on EDIT and choose SCAN SETTINGS from left sidebar.
Mark option “MEM_MAPPED: Memory that is mapped into the view of a section. (E.g:File mapping, emulator memory, slow)”. After that, everything should look like this.
And that is it.
Start some game in NOX, choose”NoxVMHandle.exe” in CE process list, and you are ready to go.
