USB is an acronym for Universal Serial Bus, a wired interface that allows multiple various devices to be connected to a computer using a common interface.

A hub is a network connection device. It typically has four or more ports that can be connected to networked devices (most commonly ethernet devices).

'>hub (where the hub has its own power supply). I also have a PS2 keyboard and PS2 trackball, both of which I love and want very much to keep using. When I got this new Dell, I got a PS2-to-USB “Y”-adapter and plugged it into the monitor’s USB hub. Everything worked well for over a year – except that maybe once a week or two, they stopped responding with the computer wake up and I had to unplug and replug the USB plug.

This would solve the problem for another week or two. About a month ago, this issue suddenly became not just a daily problem, but even needed doing every five to ten minutes or so. The power supply to the monitor’s USB hub seems to be fine and the other USB functions seem to work fine as well. I’ve re-routed my PS2 USB cord directly to the computer’s USB port

The problem that you’re experiencing is not uncommon. You tried a couple of things that I would normally recommend, but I can think of a few more that might help you in this scenario.

Don’t use the hub

The path between your computer and your USB device gets complicated when a hub is in the middle of it. In theory, everything should work just fine with hubs, but the reality can often be different.

My first recommendation would normally be to connect your Y-adapter directly into one of the USB ports on your computer bypassing the hub. This may avoid some of the intermittent problems that hubs often introduce.

You already did this, and while it improves the situation there’s still something going on.

Try other ports

Because you’re still seeing some problems with that device, I would actually recommend that you try all of the USB ports that are available on that computer.

Why? On some machines, USB ports can have subtle variations. Sometimes, they go through different hardware. In other cases, they will go through the equivalent of an internal hub – they same kind of technology that we tried to bypass above.

Eliminating the ports that may be giving you problems can make things better.

There’s another reason why I recommend that you try all of the USB ports. With all of the plugging, unplugging, and replugging that you’ve been doing with this Y-device, it’s possible that the pins on the connector have become dirty, bent, or intermittent. With USB, that’s difficult to address because the pins are well-protected, hard to access, and almost impossible to examine, clean, or fix.

Replace the cable

If that doesn’t solve the problem, see if you can replace just the cable for that Y-device. You may even consider getting two separate PS2-to-USB converters and see if that isolates or stops the problems that you’re experiencing.

I understand the allure of some of these older keyboards and mice or in your case, track balls that are only available with the older style PS2 connector. With some care and paying attention to your USB ports, you should be able to continue to use them for years to come.

Nearly everybody likes to have a little game every now and then, whether it’s a round of Windows Solitaire or the latest Call of Duty or Age of Empires. Another very popular area of gaming is the world of Flash based games which use the Adobe Flash Player from within your web browser to run. It’s especially popular among children because the games are often simple and quite easy to understand with about as much experience and knowledge needed as playing a game of Angry Birds.

If you get stuck in a normal PC game that you install on your computer, there’s usually walkthroughs, cheat codes, help guides and trainers available from a host of sources to help you out with unlimited money, health and so on. But Flash games seldom have built-in cheats and they’re a lot harder to find. Although most Flash games are easy to play, some of them are fiendishly difficult to complete which leads to frustration because there is so little help on the internet available.

One of the only ways to cheat in Flash based games is to hack the memory of the game much like an ordinary game trainer does. Here’s the simple explanation of how you can hack flash games with a program called Cheat Engine. You use Cheat Engine to load the browser process that is running the Flash game, search for the cheat value in memory, then modify or freeze the value. If you change the value to a higher number, you’ll get a higher value such as more money. If you freeze it, that means you won’t run out of that value.

Here’s how to do it.

Setting up Cheat Engine

1. Download and install the Cheat Engine program. Alternatively you can download the adware free portable version from the same page and extract the Rar file with your favorite archiver. Then launch Cheat Engine.

2. Open the Flash game in your web browser.

3. Click on the flashing Open Process button in Cheat Engine.

4. Click on the necessary process in the list and click Open. Depending on which browser you’re using, the process that Cheat Engine needs to monitor will differ.

Internet Explorer

Internet Explorer will usually create 2 processes for itself and sometimes 3, select the lowest process in the list. If you have 3 iexplore.exe processes, try the second one if the bottom one doesn’t work.

Mozilla Firefox

Firefox loads the Flash player into an external plugin container process and more recent versions of Flash also spawn two FlashPlayerPlugin_{version}.exe processes. Open the lowest FlashPlayerPlugin.exe process.

Google Chrome

Because Chrome opens so many processes for tabs and extensions it’s more tricky to identify which one to open in Cheat Engine. To find out:

1. Press Shift+Escape in Chrome to open its task manager, find the task for the Shockwave Flash plugin and note down its Process ID.

2. The ID needs to be converted into Hex so you can identify it in Cheat Engine. Either go to an online Decimal to Hex converter, type the ID and press the button to get a Hex value, or open the Windows Calculator from the Accessories menu in Start and convert to Hex from there.

3. Go back to Cheat Engine and find the Chrome process that matches the Hex value. In the example above “3852” converted to “F0C” so that process is selected.

On Page 2 we’ll show you how to search for cheats using Cheat Engine.

can warbanner online be hacked


What if all memory is unreadable? (Using chrome 71.0 and running flash player 32.0 (64-bit))
Tried running CE as administrator (which would be no help at all since it’s automatic)
What’s weird is that I did a full memory dump and tried opening it with IDA and see the result here: imgur.com/lLMOKwv
I tried viewing the strings and memory from process hacker and now it actually finds something (imgur.com/roV5JmY)
Any information on why Cheat Engine is unable to scan memory would be appreciated

Ryan2 years ago

it says its a virus


That’s because Cheat Engine is a hacking tool to hack your games…

ElDiabloQueso1 year ago

Cheat Engine is a tool that allows you to manipulate the memory (RAM) on your system, including memory addresses that are allocated to other processes.
Because of this, Windows and other anti-malware tools will see this as “potentially harmful”.


pls pls help me hack Bloons TD 5 pls pls pls, money cheat, sell price cheat, buy price cheat, …. anything that increases money will do. pls.

Sirlord341YT1 year ago

it can be hacked but its not that easy to do bc its an online game, ive done it before and had a horrible experience


1. Get Cheat Engine and open up your flash game in your browser. Browsers like IE, FF or Opera will be easier to hack than chrome because they run on fewer processes.
2. Click the PC icon at the top right and select a process of the browser you are playing the game in. Double-click one of these processes, if there are multiple ones.
3. Enable a speed hack, set it to 0 (freeze game) and apply.
4. If the game is now frozen, you selected the correct browser process. If not you need to choose another one and repeat until the speedhack freezes the game. (Works with 99% of all flash games.)

Hey. Guys. It might seem a bit weird to only post a comment now. But i really want to hack 8 ball pool using cheat engine… It is working fine until the first day of august 2017.The normal memory search process does not work any more. Is there anyway to hack it still by using cheat engine??
Hoping to hear from you guys


You don’t actually have to do any calculations, Cheat Engine will do it for you if you type the equation e.g. if you have 100 health, type in 100*8 and it will search all values of 800

xXHardcorePlayXx3 years ago

I just found a game where you need to multiply the value by 8 and add 6, it’s called Brave Shorties 2


What if your playing a game where your ammo isnt shown on screen as a number but as like a bar. thx

Jack3 years ago

I’ve already cheat age of empires resources and figures with very large health, tiberian sun and many others games years ago with cheat engine. It’s 100% working but there you must search for changed value. On youtube you have many examples. Good luck!


Was really frustrated trying to hack Swords and Souls, until I read this, and figured out the values need to be multiplied by 8, then increased by 6. Thanks so much.

Camilla4 years ago

And does that Cheat Engine Program hacks or risks my PC or Laptop?


No, Cheat Engine poses no risk to your computer, unless you try to use it on Windows or system processes.

Melanie Dutoit4 years ago

Found one that requires the (# x 8) + 6. It’s called strikeforce kitty 2. Not sure if strikeforce kitty 1 works on the same principle…

Thank you for this tutorial.


Hi guys.
Flash and shockwave are a different animal. They run inside other processes usually, but with games, they run sandboxed in their own process. Finding the right one for the right app is a little tricky. WIth different browsers, the plugin runs a little different, but most run them outside the browser in a protected memory space “as if local host”, and this can be a security problem (hence the sandbox). However, with more browsers actually enclosing it in a separate and wrapped process with the latest flash, you can be a little safer. You still need to run your AV and have it watch the process. That said…
Some have gone to the standalone flash player for this reason. It sandboxes inside the player and leaves only access to protected, private process memory (yes in your profile memory, but usually innocuous, and only with admin rights provided). Some games need that, so allow it, then copy paste the appdata, roaming, macrovision folder whereever you want (in a non run directory like documents), and wipe all your cookiecache afterward. This will prevent any mishaps, allowing you to scan the data for problems later. You can replace this folder back to it’s location later to keep savegame data.
Hacking can be done on two levels. SaveTrainer, and GameTrainer. SaveTrainer is a bit more like hexedits. You connect to the save files in the folders, and search for specific values, then change them.
GameTrainer is a mode in which the game is running. With different browsers, the plugin will have different names and process id’s. Check them out. They may even have similar names to the actual browser. The standalone player is particularly difficult to hack, as it seems to route memory information and move it constantly in its own process. Start with the plugin process with the lowest process id, then move on to the next one. Scan the same way each time. One of them will produce results. Also, flash 7 uses the double type mostly. Anything below uses 4byte. 8 and 9 use 4byte for most standard values, but require you to multiply all values by 8 and scan for that.

Thumbs up for such a fantastic tutorial, really helps with many of games.
Can we cheat cards gambling games like “Teen Patti Gold”?



with your help i tried to hack pet rescue saga successfully. THANK YOU FOR THAT.
And please let me know, Is that possible to hack facebook games such as dragon city and monster legends.
and some suggessions for hacking it.
Your article gives me more interest in trying those.

Npham204 years ago

There is a way, but you can’t scan the numbers. You have to change to array of bytes and search for the correct array and change the array for some of the games. But for these two, hacking gold, gems, food is almost impossible. Its easy to hack like the limit of habitats or farms you have. Switch to text and search farm. Then select all the result you get and change the value to infinite, then buy a farm and you will get infinite farms.


The 6.4 cheat engine has a Trojan virus. You might want to get an earlier version, instead.

HAL9000 Author5 years ago

No it hasn’t, you’re reading too much into something like VirusTotal or your own security program’s results. Some antivirus will flag this as malicious because it’s a hacking tool.


Just had to reply to this.
You sure about that? HAL open the pod bay doors.
Seems misleading doesn’t it?

Just kidding. I’ve been using cheatengine for years. I just got into full on trainer creation. Didn’t know about flash needing a *8 or a *8 + 6 though and got stuck on my first game.

Which browser and which version of it are you using?

steven davidson6 years ago

type about:memory in the address bar you will see pepper plugin with shockwave flash player under it next to it will be a number type the number in your calculator and press hex it will show you what file to open when you open cheat engine


How about Opera??

HAL9000 Author6 years ago

The older Opera should be quite easy because it’s one executable file that needs monitoring (opera.exe).

The newer Chromium based Opera is more difficult because it doesn’t have an internal task manager like Google Chrome so you can’t easily identify which process is the correct one. The only way really is to have 1 tab open and try to find the last opened opera.exe in Windows Task Manager when you open the page with the flash game in it.


it was great , but it is fake coins , i did for Pool Live Tour
i can’t play or buy any item
fake coins , any suggest ?
appreciated in advance

As I put in the note at the bottom, Facebook games are highly unlikely to work as the data is stored on their servers, and as you have to buy extra coins, the value will most likely be encrypted as well….
