    Just wondering those who downloaded my tutorials on cracking did you understand it all? Just making sure it was clear and easy to understand. If not what are you stuck on?

    Feel free to message me if there is something I did not explain very well.

    Also admin apologies but I wasn't sure where to put this. Loft or Tutorials.

    Angel :)

    Hello thank you for your kindness and thoughtfulness. Your tutorials are easy to see how things work. I have been searching for cracking tutorials and I thinks yours is the best.

    Because I am just a beginner, plus that you are asking such question, I guess you had explained everything that are necessary, although there's thing I don't know like: What is RIP, EIP, ECX, EDX, ESI, EDI,... I think they can be googled, but it'll be nice if you put some word describe that what kind of work they do in this specific case, then tell me to read on Wiki myself, then I will get it like: Aaa, RIP is a 64-bits register, that's why it do the thing. Or just say that it's no need to care.

    There are some cases that, for a beginner like me who watched some tutorials of your, and then wants to try crack a new program that is not in your list myself. Today I try to crack a program called Live2d Cubism 3.3. It is a program that appear the message box of Buy/Trial at the start. After I hit run and animate over, the x64dbg lost all the codes (blank, empty, no word, just like when I didn't drag the exe in), the bottom left corner said: Terminated | Debugging stopped!. And the program still ran from x64dbg. What is the case and why it happened? You can test it and if you have that problem too, it'll be nice if you could make a tutorial as a solution for the case.
    https://www.softpedia.com/get/Multimedia/Graphic/Graphic-Editors/Live2D-Cubism.shtml

    You could add more definitions like you did in the readmes about variations of x64dbg (or just say that which programming language to learn) to get a better understanding how they work. By that I think I can understand the cases where they won't work.

    Thank you and best regards.

    Hi, just taken a look at this Cubism. It is written in JAVA, the APP folder has a JRE folder. This is JAVA and requires good knowledge of JAVA programming so that is one reason it fails in the debugger. Not many JAVA written programs out there now luckily.

    As for the commands that is all I did to learn things, googled them. I am self taught so all I know about ESI is I think it is 32bit, like EAX is 32bit but RAX the same thing is the 64bit version. But what they mean I do not know, I just know what to look out for in the debugger, you can enter these codes and to me all they are really are just another path to another call or function basically. Some are memory calls etc. Some store numbers like serials. I only understand the way the debugger works, pure luck on my part more or less mate.

    I only really learned CALL and what the JNE, JE, JLE, JL, JMP etc meant as really this is all you need to know to crack a lot of the stuff.

    Sorry I cannot help much more than that, but all my work is guess work. I just seem to have a knack. As for the kind words on the tutorials it is very kind, I watched a lot of youtube videos that were useless so I spent months learning it of my own back. It was very hard but as you see on here it seems to have paid off. So my tutorials I tried to make as easy as I could.

    I may not know much about certain things but I will try my best to help where needed, Toby :)

    Nice one, well that I know will take time to figure out. Some people seem to think it's very easy regardless of my tutorials it can be bloody hard. Can take weeks sometimes on some cracks, all depends how much you know. Longest I spent was about 2 - 3 weeks straight on one crack. It can be hard but well worthwhile in the end.

    Have fun Leo :)

    Question please, in case there are malware in the patches, keygens,... in the published software folder out there. Do you think cracking them patches and keygens to pass over the malware function, is possible?

    You can but you need to look into using Virtual Machines etc. Google Virtual Box or Virtual XP to get an idea. But I ain't this clever sorry, also I advice not to try that unless you have an image of your PC after a fresh Windows install just in case anything goes wrong. I use Macrium Reflect to backup my PC and I've had to reset my PC about 2 or 3 times in the last 8 months due to all this cracking stuff as I sometimes give myself my own virus due to editing the wrong command.

    Thanks mate. Glad what I learned since last year is helping others learn as well. I tried to make it simple as that is all I know. I hate tutorials that go on and on and bore you to tears before learning almost nothing :)

    Hello, can I ask about why you chose certain lines to toggle breakpoint in each tutorial?

    Because the program opened and the debugger stopped. So when that happens you put a breakpoint on the place the program opens. Similar to reading a book. You always open it from the place you're at.

    Thank you. So that the way you chose the breakpoint in Substance Designer (from "Activation wizard" - find string - follow - go up some lines - find references - follow - go up lines,...) use the same mindset to choose?

    Yes. But it took me several goes to get it right. Just use my stuff as more experiencr to gain for yourself. Every program is different and some programmers recode their updates. But once you find the string or place to bypass most of the time they will always be at the same place. Don't just copy what I do learn to get there by yourself. It will make you a lot happier believe me. The way I learned all this was watching a crappy tutorial called Crack Me and after that just nonths of late nights failure and then eventually it came to me naturally.

    Once you understand how the debugger works the rest comes easy really. Always here to help but just try as much as you can. The harder things are the easier they get. Trust me on that one. I never dreamed of cracking ad much as I have let alone one program.

    It get eaasier...

    Yes you're right. It's getting more and more fun. Admit that I am not smart enough to even understand that Crack Me tutorial, so I let my lazy ass sit away from cracking for a while. This is the first time I can see and understand how to crack, and got a motivation to understand it to the root.

    Once again thank you for your hard work.

    You are welcome. I just like how many people are learning from something I learned as well. Truth is cracking to me relieves boredom but knowing people are learning from me makes me happy. I like to help where I can :)

    I downloaded that the other day. I didn't understand what the heck it was. I think it was packed meaning in the debugger it is all mumbo jumbo. I can't remember. But either way ny tutorials show you the basics of how to start. You have to put time and practise in to learn yourself. I am not here to crack everything as I don't know how to crack everything. I hope my stuff inspires people to learn more than I have so they might crack stuff I find hard or impossible.

    But like I said to my mate online you jave to put in the effort in if you wanna learn how to crack stuff. Good Luck.
