Is it possible for a person with decent experience in cpp/csharp to crack a cheat in IDA Pro, and if it is than what are the steps?
 
Solution
Yes and no.
I have little experience with anything related to c#, but yet I can still somewhat easily crack loaders written in it due to the fact that reverse engineering is more about having solid techniques to use and just having a generally okay understanding of how computer memory works.

Knowing how to read and write c++ / c# code will be extremely helpful throughout the process of any large reverse engineering projects, as it can be used to automate certain processes that you will need to execute while cracking something.

It gets a lot more complicated once things like virtualizers and just general obfuscation are implemented in the loaders, and this will normally mean that using a static analyzer (what ida is) becomes somewhat...

There is no set "steps" to doing things, because every cheats loader will have significantly different security hurdles that you will have to bypass and all (decent pay to cheats) will have securities even inside of the cheats module once injected that will prevent you from even dumping the memory correctly.

The best way to get better at reverse engineering is by seeing what others are doing and how they are using the tools given to them to their advantage. There is many amazing malware analysis articles and youtubers that could be of help in learning reverse engineering, and ill leave you a few different sources to learn from if you are interested in actually learning.


OALabs (Youtube, has generally helpful information)
GuidedHacking (Youtube, has some helpful ida tutorials and some things on gamehacking which may help with cracking game cheats)
HotlineHvH / Hoodmanager (Has some live examples of him cracking game cheats, may show some useful information to you)





Hopefully this helps you in some way and please correct me if I made any mistakes, I wrote this quick and dont feel like rereading it lol
