90% of cheats are coded in ring0.. best way to detect them is to have exp. with ring0

If you truly have an interest, we should sync up.

I wish I could help you, but my last programming experience was with Commodore machine code, and it didn't go well. Anyway, I wish you luck.

Nope, I do

I'd offer help with UI/UX, but I'm already swamped with a HUGE project at work.

Yea, cheats are incredibly hard to detect these days. Burried deep within the user's computer. Screenshots were one way to catch them - but most now a days detect a snapshot and disable themselves. It's an up-hill battle.

So yea.... who's up for a challenge? =)
