Need help with a personal project: Hacking NavyField
I am a total newbie at hacking multiplayer games, but I would like to learn more. I have decided that I am going to single-handedly (with some tips and pointers from those who know their stuff and are willing to help) hack this game www.navyfield.com. It’s an MMORPG, and as far as I know, doesn’t have much protection.
Now, before I begin, I’d like to know if there is anyone here who is good at this and would like to be my tutor? That way, if I have any questions, I can ask you, and you can point me in the right direction, etc. Or can I just come and post here in this thread to get help?
Now, I’ll begin. My first question: where the hell do I begin? I have tried to do some research on the topic, and I have not found a lot to tell you the truth, but even the stuff I have found has (to truthfully tell you), overwhelmed me.
What should I learn? What are the basic fundamentals I need to know before I start anything?
Thank you for your time, and input, it is much appreciated,
figure out how to use wpe, that is recording values and sending packets back to the game, lets say for example you want to have health sent back to you're guy etc, you hurt yourself, and record getting the health back, then send this packet back constantly and ur guy should get health constantly
I tried to capture the packets the game was sending back and forth, but WPE doesn't capture any. To test WPE, I tried other programs, and it captured the packets fine. Could it be due to some protection? I know the game has something called ENFUNS updater which always starts up in the beginning. The game also starts through NFlauncher.exe, not Navyfield.exe directly.
Possible solutions? I couldn't find much on the internet under ENFUNS, I'll check out neworder.box.sk and see if they have anything, but it looks like an obscure little program, probably tailored for the game.
By the way, just sending a packet to replicate a desire effect just makes the game not respond to any important function (such as leaving the harbour, trying to make a new sailor, etc.). Do you think this might be due to protection?
