How to hack windows pinball, and any other games

First you need to download artmoney

install it with all the default options

then load it up, you should see a screen like this:

ok now load up windows pinball. We will use pinball to show you how this program works, then you can use it on just about any game.
for those who don’t know what pinball looks like, here ya go

moving right along. Play one ball of pinball, so you get a score. let the ball drop quickly, all you need is to get a score bigger than 0, like so

excellent. Now pull up artmoney, select the process “3d pinball for windows”

now click search, and enter your score like so (in my case, my score was 11000)

once the search starts, you will see a bunch of little integer values pop up in the right pane of the main program. perfect.
Now go back to pinball. Play one more ball (by this i mean, increase your score a little, and let the ball drop/go)

my new score is 34250

ok now go back to artmoney. Now we want to filter our previous search results, keeping only the integers that changed with out score. To do this, click filter and in the value field add your new score
Once you submit that… the integers in the left hand pane should now decrease to about 2. Perfect!
Now click the fatter arrow (below the thinner arrow) in between the two panes like so (this wall transfer the integer values over so you can play with them)

Now go to the integer field (in the right pane) and right click it, then click edit (follow the picture below)

change its value to some absurdly high number (i use eight 9’s), and the checkmark the box that says freeze

click ok, and you should see that number changed on the main screen. Now do the same thing for the second integer – change it to the same value as the previous, and checkmark the freeze box. Once you change both, you should see something similiar to this

now go back to pinball. Play until you get a game over (or just deploy, and let the ball fall until the game ends)
Congratulations, you got a high score


anyone who plays with this and finds other tricks, be sure to post em here!

Steganography – hiding files in images

Ok guys, here is a quick tutorial to show how you can hide videos, pictures, and documents inside a JPG picture.

You will need:
-A compression program (7zip, winzip, winrar, winace, etc…)
-A jpg picture (It may work with GIF, BMP, etc… but I’ve only tried with JPG)
-Files you want to hide :)

To begin:
Compress all the files you want to hide into an archive… this can be a zip file, rar file, ace file… whatever. As long as you have the ability to uncompress it later.

Now open up a command prompt (Start->Run->”cmd”)
Change to the directory that your hidden files archive and JPG picture is in.
I find it easiest to put my picture and archive in c:\, then type in “cd\” in the command prompt to get to c:\

Now… for the purposes of this tutorial, we will use the filenames as follow: (this is the archive of secret files)
original.jpg (this is the original jpg picture)
new.jpg (this is the jpg with the hidden files inside it)

In the command prompt (which should be pointing to correct directory as mentioned above), type the following:
copy /B original.jpg + new.jpg

The /B stands for binary (look it up if you want).
This basically copies the secret files and jpg into a new jpg. The new jpg looks exactly like the old… but if you right click it, and click extract here (or open it with your compression program) you will be able to see the hidden files!

The only noticiable difference between the new jpg and old jpg is the file size… but who looks at that anyways? For all intents and purposes, your files are now hidden :)

You can make this more secure by encrypting files before putting them in the archive, or archiving them in 2 different formats (e.g. zip it then rar it) that only you will remember

A Web Macro/Robot

Was going through some of my files, and found a macro/robot I wrote in PHP using curl a long time ago. It’s purpose was to log into a website (some forums) and raise a friend’s reputation by 1 every hour (that was the limit). I used the explode command to sift through the html source of each page to find the right links (and thus, the session ids), then sent post variables with Curl. Hope some of you can put some use to it :)

Note – Works best in conjunction with Cron Jobs. Set a cron to run this script every hour or so, and you have massive reputation gained over a short period of time.
