|Summary||0000377: use thread injection to scan for memory?|
|Description||as far as i've guessed (haven't actually looked in the source code), cheat engine does a full memory copy of the target process (i guess this is because ReadProcessMemory calling is slow, so just make 1 big call with reading everything? or something like that), |
question is, could we avoid copying memory like that, by something like this:
Freeze all target threads,
make the new thread scan the process for us (either write the opcodes for the operation directly in the memory, or use a classic dll injection,), then use some IPC-thing (shared memory?) to tell cheat engine when the scan is done, and where to grab the results?
if something like this is possible, it would be nice in memory-constrained situations, i guess.
