I just can't seem to understand CE

Post by ZimonIsHim » Fri Jan 04, 2019 6:34 pm

Good evening (if you're reading this in the evening...),
My name is Simon and I've been active on this site without an account for a couple of weeks now. I've seen some tutorials and I've downloaded some tables.
Today I tried to create a table for Plantera:
and I have come to the conclusion that I don't understand how things like the disassembler work.
I followed this tutorial: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=4113 , but instead of ammo I used it for coins. I got stuck on the part where he starts making a script for the table because I don't understand how he finds the right address to write to with the script. I've read multiple tutorials but everything is just so overwhelming. Does anyone have any high-quality tutorials or explanations? I'm really desperate since I'm able to program in C# and I'm quite good with technology, thus I feel really, really, really stupid.

Thank you in advance, Simon.

I'd suggest doing the CE tutorial (in the help menu), but there is a tutorials section on the forum and the CE wiki has a lot of information. But the tutorial you linked seems to explain how they found the address, so it might be a lack of knowing assembly language.

Post what you have, someone might be able to explain it better.

I know the wiki and I've bookmarked a lot of tutorials in the tutorial section.
The point is that I simply don't understand how this works... even with these tutorials. I need to find a tutorial that explains terms and does things slowly and clearly. It just makes me feel so dumb... :(

They tend to work progressively, so you'll need to start at a basic one and work your way up.
Start here and just work your way down the list.
But me and most others on the forum will work with you, just make sure to show your work/effort.

If there are terms that didn't get answered by the wiki, ask here; I even tend to add that kind of thing to the wiki when it's pointed out.

And there is Cheat The Game (YT) and Stephen Chapman (YT). They both have some great tutorials, and some that get every specific and in depth. And being in video format you'll see those little things that get missed in pictures and text.

Thank you so much! These Youtube channels will certainly help. Also thank you for being so welcoming, I guess I'll say: "I'm so proud of this community" very soon!

I just read your post titled "Had a fun conversation about VG cheating.". It was a very interesting read. How often do conversations like that occur?

I wouldn't say that often. But when asked "So you're good with computers", I tend to say "one of my hobbies is hacking VGs"; so it does come up. The last one was with my sisters BF's kids, but they were more excited then upset. Most just seem to see a scene from a movie in their head ("I'm in.") and don't really say much. The kid from that post/conversation was a little too high strung for a kid, at least that's my thinking in the end.

That's interesting. Again, thank you for your help!
