Something about this wanting to run as root and asking for the admin password made me throw it away.

See the replies to GAME_ON's comment below for why root access is required.

Cheers on the release Chaz and Adrien. Looks like it was compiled as intel only? Well the source is available anyway!

game_on had trouble on 19 Sep 2007
I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but every time I go to search for a value (any variable type) in a game, it immediately tells me "Search found no results.". I've tried this on +10 different games, and none will give me anything.
What am I doing wrong?

It seems that as of 10.5, you can't poke around in the memory of other applications without proper authorization (I was always surprised you used to be allowed to).

Anyway, it seems you can get this version of the cheat to work by making it execute as root. To do this, open up terminal and navigate inside the application using something like

cd /Applications/Games/The Cheat.app/Contents/MacOS/

You'll need to use a different path if you've placed the application in a different place than I did. Then type

sudo chown root The Cheat

followed by your admin password, then type

sudo chmod +s The Cheat

This should make it work again. Note that you'll have to repeat the steps if you move the application.

Thanks, man. I guess it would make sense for it to need root privileges to scan other processes memory, huh?

I think that'd be something to put in the next update to The Cheat.
