I have never hacked and never will but I'm just curious about the technology and the programmer's skill. What I'm asking about the general concepts like: Someone cracks/decomplies the original C+ code (or whatever language), then determines how the program detects damage, blah blah blah. I remember installing mods for Quake games, but this was sooo long ago I forget the details. It had to do with DLing a new PAK file and renaming it to the original and renaming the orginal (as bk) and putting this in the root folder of Quake. If I remember correctly. But these weren't hacs, just fun mods. like a jetpack or new weapons and all players had these. How does an AIM bot work? Are hacs a recompiled PAK file(or equivalent) of the original game. Are hacs a small application you can set your config file to open and run in parallel with the application? See I'm clueless. EDIT: I am NOT looking for details of any particular game and I don't want anyone to reply with such. This is purely a theoritical discussion of concept only. Thank you. Thanks.
