    I Am Making An Anti-Cheat For My Game That Uses Offsets So The Value Is Different And I Am Making A Main Anti-Cheat Script The Other Scripts Can Use. I Want It So That The Offset Variables Are Not Shared Between Scripts Using The Anti-Cheat But They Are Shared Between The Methods Inside Of The Main Anti-Cheat Script And I Don't Know How To Do That. The Main Method Is Public And Static Right Now.


    Thanks For Any Help

    "Anti-cheat" as you call it is usually achieved via some form of data encryption. Offsetting values won't be that effective against more experienced hackers. If they can see the values they would change to hack your game, they could also find your offset values...

    Basically what @ItzChris92 said... it would only tske basic knowledge to cheat in your game, no matter what you try to invent there...

    That is, don't waste the time doing fancy and inefficient anti-cheat mechanisms.
    Instead, work on the project, get it done. Be happy if people feel like cheating in an offline game... i mean, then you've probably made a game worth to be played and worth the effort to find hacks and cheats.

    This ^^^

    And because it is trivial for the more experienced hackers to explain their discoveries to the novices (your inclusion of your anti-cheat actually creates motivation to break it due to the Streisand effect, which then motivates those who do to brag about how they did it), it doesn't really do anything to stop the novices either.

    i know that it might not work but i'm trying to learn the skills of making something like that. i don't need help making the anticheat. i just need help with the variables. also it is more complicated than just an offset, i just said that to keep it short. also i tested the anticheat with cheat engine and i couldn't hack into it, i made it so that if you edit any values it print to the console so i can see that you would be banned (later i will add bans to my mysql database). i'm not an expert hacker or anything but i know enough to test some things on my anti-cheat

    You're kind of trying to re-invent the wheel here, but the above link seems similar to what you are after.

    what i was doing is whenever a value changes you interpret that number as hex then convert it to decimal to give you a different number. then times it by -1 and offset it. then to check if it the original has been edited you do the same maths to the original and then compare them. is this a good way to do it or not?

    Afraid I can't offer any more advice really. Hopefully someone else can chime in.
