Title: Cheater (not online)
Hi i've got a problem with asm, when I want to code a code with an loop in it, the game crashes. Here is an exemple:
Code:
ldr r0,=0x00000043
ldr r1,=0x00000F30
loop:
ldr r2,=0x020DB45D
str r2,[r2]
mla r3,r2,r1,r0
cmp r3,r1
bne loop                 ;if r3 is not equal to r1, go to loop
bx r14


But when I try a code like this, the game freezes. Any suggestions?

Your code basically looks like this, written in C:
Code:
do {
    *(u32*)0x020DB45D = 0x020DB45D;
} while (0x302344B3 != 0x00000F30);
return;


Maybe that helps to see what causes the infinite loop. But, I really don't understand the misaligned write...

hmm I could try your code, is there existing a compiler to compile c in ards?

P.S.: is it possible to load an 8-bit/16-bit address in asm?

You don't want to compile the code I posted; it is functionally equivalent to what you posted, thus is would still hang. The reason I posted it at all was to illustrate the problem in a higher level language. The loop checks for the condition that the number 0x302344B3 is not equal to the number 0x00000F30. This condition is always true. Therefore, the loop will never end.

To answer your second question: yes.
Code:
ldrb: Load byte (8-bit)
ldrh: Load halfword (16-bit)
ldr:  Load word (32-bit)


I take it you haven't done any programming before?

Thats what I want, i want a infinite loop but maybe this is the reason why the game crashes.
I did qbasic, basic, visual basic, some c, html and now asm.
But im only 14 years old so im not so experienced.
thanks a lot!

An "infinite loop" is a crash: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infinite_loop

Besides, if that's all you wanted, it's actually a lot more simple:
Code:
loop:
b    loop

Because it will be stuck in your loop forever and never get to the actual game code.

Maybe it would be better trying to explain the specific goal you are after, instead of "putting the game into an infinite loop without crashing it ..." Because that's totally nonsensical.

I'm trying to make an autokill code for metroid prime hunters eu 1.1
I have all addresses but when I try to use the autokill code the game crashes.

In this code I didn't take the right addresses cause I don't whant some noobs to cheat in the wi-fi.

Just to be an ass, I'd like to point out that arm-eabi-as accepts

Code:
b $

And would yield the same thing as

Code:
loop:
b loop

The $ operator is pretty damn nice.
