Welcome. This is a hobby journey, I will work on it after my main projects to wind down a bit.

Now, I'm a huge fan of video games, truly. But, juggling with software projects all day long means I want to disconnect and soak up some real-world vibes now and then.

However, every so often, the irresistible call of the digital wild awakens, and I find myself drawn to the thrilling adventures of DayZ.

Imagine a world teeming with zombies, where survival is the name of the game, and the stakes are sky-high between every player you meet. Pure adrenaline.

But here's the catch - as the years roll by and my gaming hours dwindle, I've noticed my skills aren't quite what they used to be. And let's face it, fumbling through a hardcore zombie survival game can be more frustrating than fun when everything in the game is out to get you.

So, in a quest to keep the fun alive without turning into zombie chow every five minutes or dying from hunger all the time(i play hardcore+), I did a little digging for some clever tricks to up my game.

Specifically, I was on the hunt for ways to snag better loot without wandering aimlessly.

Sure enough, I stumbled upon some DayZ radar solutions. They sounded like a dream, promising to give me the upper hand without breaking a sweat.

The catch? The price tag. The most wallet-friendly option clocks in at a hefty $40 a month.

As someone who happily axes their Netflix subscription the moment the binge-watching frenzy fades, forking out that kind of cash just isn't in the cards for me.

So of course I came up with a stupid idea to make my own dayz radar. Why stupid? Because I spent so many hours on it, it would be way cheaper just to rent it. But where is fun in that, right?

Now I want to monetize my work and gain back some value from this useless project.

Here is a screenshot from ingame(left) and the hack(right).

447c


NB: It's not a hack! As per forum rules - this should not be considered as interference in game files(hacking them), my software process reads game memory from RAM and from that decides what to show on the map. Map is hosted externally and can be launched on a laptop, tablet or even TV screen. Or mobile device.

Funny enough I have had this cheat for 2 years now, still hasn't been patched nor my account is banned. I guess it's considered safe enough to publish it.

The software is written in c++ and uses a vulnerable(but signed!) driver to access dayz memory and bypass BE.

Challenges:

1. I do suck with C++, it's hard for me to work with it fast, takes a lot of time and research.

2. Security. How to build software smart enough to avoid detection and make it safe for clients to run.

3. Revenue goal. My plan is to sell the radar for $45/month, $18/week or $250/lifetime. To achieve my goal I would need 450 active clients. It's quite a lot. But doable.

Let the games begin!

My first task is to rebuild map engine because I borrowed my map from a public site https://dayz.xam.nu/ and they updated their stuff and it broke mine.

So now I need to borrow it again but this time make it easily patchable for my needs to next time when they do update it doesn't fully break my stuff.

You play it sober? Lol

I usually used caffeine but after 7 days x10 hours I can't anymore.

Then I would ruin my scores on alcohol.
Good luck, you can also make it cheaper and attract more clients, works both ways.
Haha. So that's your gaming niche SaaS. I guess it's a cool one.

Gaming is a nice loophole for making money. A few serious companies would compete with you.
 
Best of luck with the journey,
You can use the cheats to rank accounts & sell in some other games as well, need to JV with a few players tho
 
Nice journey. I remember when you mentioned building this map in a previous thread.

To achieve my goal I would need 450 active clients.
How many monthly active players does the game have? Depending on that you might blow up without too much marketing.

But if you reach your goal, you'll have too much exposure and they'll patch it lol. Gonna be a fun ride.
 
Good luck. I have done something similar before with some crypto games. The problem is that once they notice you, they make an update every time to patch your cheat, making your work pretty useless. However, you are working on a different thing. I hope you succeed!

Same as with your guide, you could sell it for $90 instead of $188, I would even buy it then ;) But you have your reasons why to charge high, right?

That sounds like a lot of work!

love that gl!! Hope u get en 20k
It's only matter of time, I'm sure that 5k will be very easy, 10k doable but for 20k - that will be a challenge with this project.

Good luck - salty friend :cool:
Haha! Once journey will be done, I will get a few pinacoladas. :D

20k month with one cheat. I think some social media spam is gonna be involved heavily.
Discord.

How many monthly active players does the game have? Depending on that you might blow up without too much marketing.
40k avg with 70k peak of active players.

But if you reach your goal, you'll have too much exposure and they'll patch it lol. Gonna be a fun ride.
Thats why I want to make it in a way that every client gets custom build. To keep it undetected.

You "just" need the ability to talk to several persons at the same time and be convincing... Kira can sell that shit! ;)
I think in this project no need for AI, a single good first message should be enough, either person is interested or not.

Cheat itself can't be patched, they could ban the driver I guess, but I have more than a few driver versions to use for this. If that option will go out too, then there is always option to use DMA, one example: https://github.com/ufrisk/pcileech
 
The worst with this black hat niche is copyright ©️ infringement. I got countless social media accounts down because of that. On discord potentially there'd be no problem with that.

I haven't found any cease and desist letters and copyright problems which are only submitted to social media moderation and not forwarded elsewhere are most they can do.
 
Definitely a lot of money to be made in this industry, especially for big games. If you can keep it undetected (headache) and updating it fast after in-game updates to minimize downtime then customers will like it. Make sure to build a nice UI for it and post it on cheating forums. Accept resellers later on to increase your earnings.


Good luck with your journey.



ps: Use DMCA ignore hosting and find a way to accept paypal as well apart from crypto/credit card, most sales are coming from paypal and if you are undetected and provide after-sale support the dispute rate will be very low. And protect your software, sometimes there is crackers that leaking code.
