  • GitHub repo pywin32

    Python for Windows (pywin32) Extensions

    Project mention: I want to make code that senses a certain event in the game terraria | reddit.com/r/AskProgramming | 2021-04-10

    That idea sounds like it should be more straightforward than it is, but unless the game exposes some kind of API for you to use, you're basically forced to extract that data manually, typically by reading the game's memory. If you're doing this on Windows then I suggest looking into C/C++ WinAPI and Cheat Engine. You didn't specify a language, but if you want to avoid C/C++ you could probably get away with using WinAPI wrapper libraries if such a thing exists for your language, e.g. WinAPI for Rust or Python - but most game hacking tutorials implement C++, and if you're serious about game hacking then C++ is probably going to end being your best friend imo.
