The way the hack or, if you would, a cheat, described here works is by replacing the type of currency it associates with items you can purchase. It does have side affects – you might see negative Farm Cash or Farm Cash going wild on the positive side (yet Zynga seems to have blocked purchases with “hacked” cash just a day or two before this post), see 0 cost upgrades which do not work, etc. However, it will give you a way to buy Farm Cash items with regular FarmVille coins. If you don’t have enough of those, check the post about getting unlimited FarmsVille coins.
Well, let’s start already! Have FarmVille 2 open in Chrome, fire up Cheat Engine and attach it to the Flash process. Now you want to identify the sequences of numbers that refer to coins and cash. First, make sure you select
Array of byte in the
Value Type drop down and have the
Hex checkbox checked off. Paste the following sequence of numbers into the search box and click
40 42 0F 00 40 42 0F 00 00 00 00
Select the first address and copy it into the address list by clicking on the button with the red arrow:
Now search for this sequence and copy the first address into the address list:
29 00 00 00 29 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
Right-click on the address you just added and select
Browse this memory region:
Copy the last four numbers in the first row – this is the FarmVille Cash reference:
Now paste them into the search box, click
New Search and then
First Search. Cheat Engine will find a lot of addresses with that value – go ahead and add them to the address list:
Select the very first address you’ve added (with the value of
40 42 0F 00 40 42 0F 00 00 00 00) and browse the memory. Copy the last four numbers in the first row – this is the FarmVille Coin reference:
Now select all references to FarmVille Cash in the address list, right-click and select
Change Record > Value, or simply press
Enter. Paste the value you just copied – this will replace FarmVille Cash references with FarmVille Coin references.
This is it! Go to
General Store and you’ll find that what used to be available for FarmVille Cash is now available for FarmVille Coins!
