Getting Inside the Game
Hacking is something you should have at least a little familiarity with as a gamer. It’s not about winning a contest or completing the game fast. It’s about fully exploring everything you can about a game. Some glitches can be found whenever you want to find them, and they might change the way the game is played.
Also, varying hacks and cheats can open new ways of playing the game. This has been the case since video games made their way to the mainstream. If you really want to get the full experience, you need to know how to hack—at least a little bit. Following we’ll explore a few easy things you can look into so you’ll be able to maximize your play with every game.
- Traditional Cheats: Passwords, Design Flaws, Etc.
There are a lot of reasons games have cheat codes. Sometimes these are used so developers can quickly move through a level and make sure an alteration of the code has worked as intended.
Sometimes cheats exist in games accidentally, or as deliberate easter eggs. Whatever the case, over time, such cheats become known, and in a very common way. Here’s a link to an archive of cheat codes if you’re not sure how to go about finding them.
- DLL Injector
DLL stands for Dynamic-Link Library. Essentially, DLL code can be used to augment game functionality. You don’t have to use DLL code to win a game, or to beat opponents; it can be used for the purposes of augmenting a digital space for a short film, or comedy sketch. There are a lot of ways you can use DLL injector options in and out of the game. Play around a bit.
As you learn how to use DLL code, you’ll be able to design your own options for varying games. Now certainly, this will require some work, some experimentation, and some time. However, the skills you learn playing around with varying DLL injectors can come in quite handy in the tech sector elsewhere.
In today’s world, having a facility with technology is as marketable as having a facility with the inner workings of a vehicle’s engine used to be. In fact, as technology becomes increasingly automated, it’s to be expected that auto mechanic facilities will have a staff programmer on hand. Think about what a Tesla garage must be like.
- Dual Functionality – the PS Vita can be a PS4 Controller
Following is a link to a short video with ten different video game “hacks”; though these aren’t quite what you’re expecting. See, there are ways you can use hardware beyond its traditionally intended purpose for something secondary. The PlayStation Vita can be used as a PS4 controller, and that was designed into Vita’s hardware deliberately.
The video in the link also shows how to use thumb drives to store game data in controllers so you can bring your favorite games from one computer to another, and much more. Check it out here.
Mastering Every Game
Whether you’re using hardware-based hacks to consolidate playing resources, you’re exploring cheats that are built into a given game, or you’re using a DLL injector to fundamentally change game mechanics, you don’t have to be an expert in hacking to look at what’s “under the hood” of your favorite game.
Look into the hacks that are widely known, develop a few of your own, and play around with varying pieces of gaming equipment like controllers to discover all there is to know. When you take this approach to gaming, you’ll find almost every game has secret content you didn’t even know existed.
