    "Reverse engineering is the process of analyzing hardware or software and understanding it, without having access to the source code or design documents."

    There is a series of beginner tutorials about how to reverse engineer a program (and or game). Maybe useful if you need to disable file protections of a game to get mods to work.

    Cool thing! If that helps us to make mods easier, than great! But I'm not getting in to this. I'm not a programmer. :)

    You're quite welcome. I also found this for anyone who may want to expand their knowledge on the subject;
    https://archive.org/details/PracticalReverseEngineering

    I bought this book shortly after it was published, though, only managed to make through a few chapters. It is quite an interesting read, and a little more technical.
