Cheat Engine 6.xx Beta v5 for MacOS

UPDATE: Don’t bother using Cheat Engine, this is an incomplete program. Check out Bit Slicer!

Believe it or not, there is actually a cheat engine for the Intel MacOS systems! Personally I didn’t know till I read through the front page.

If you try searching for a mac cheat engine, you will find an older version on other download sites and ports on sourceforge, which do not work on the current MacOS operating systems.

This version cannot find pointers or browse memory and is not completely finished. If you want a better memory hacking program, please use BitSlicer. If you are looking for some cheats for BitSlicer, check out our community forums!


Q) The program fidgets (or jumps up and down) and won’t open. I am using El Capitan or Sierra.
A) You need to disable System Integrity Protection. (watch this video)
– Restart your machine and hold down the Command + R keys at startup. (wait a long time)
– Press the Continue button to go to the OS X Utilities form.
– Launch Terminal from the OS X Utilities > Utilities menu.
– Enter the following command:
“csrutil disable”

Q) I am using MacOS Sierra and I get the error, “The application “cheatengine-i386″ can’t be opened.”.
A) Double click on the Sierra file and type in your password.

Q) I am using El Capitan and when I click on the program, it says I cannot open this program because of authorization issues.
A) Right click on the program and press open. Then type in your password.

Q) Failure enabling speedhack. (DLL injection failed): Error in line 13
(call_dlopen): This instruction can’t be compiled
A) Install xcode and try waiting 10 minutes between opening the target with C.E. and enabling it.

Q) Why does the program need my computer password?
A) The program needs permission to read and write to other processes.


    1. it doesn’t work it change the values but not for real as soon as you will start buying stuff your paying it for real not whit the cheated money.

      1. I don’t know what game you’re trying to modify, but some games that have server interactions cannot be modified as it requires the server interactions not the client side.

  1. im trying a borderlands 2 hack on the slot machines but none are working. the CT file just highlights but doesn’t tick the box like in the tutorials… why? how can i change this

  2. When clicking on the ‘window list’, nothing pops up. This is the case with many Mac apps, is there any way to ‘fix’ it or at least get the window to show?

      1. I repaired permissions, though this has not fixed anything in CE. I am certain that I’m not in a guest account. I can see processes and everything, just can’t change the view from ‘process list’ to ‘window list’. Could you think of any reason why this still happens? Or if I need to change my permissions, maybe to root, where I could do it? Thanks for getting back so soon

        Great how you managed to cross this over to mac, been waiting for a while πŸ™‚

  3. its doesnt work on Plant vs Zombie… work just first, second and next, just show blank Address (on Next Scan)….

    Sorry my bed english, i from Indonesia πŸ˜€

    1. Sounds like you didn’t find the value you were looking for. Sometimes values can be in floats, 8bytes, 4bytes or even text values. You just have to search all your options. BTW – I’m not the maker of the mac version. This is an official release by Dark Byte on the official CE website. You can post in his forums if you have questions.

    2. For stuff like that on the mac, it is easier to use ihaxgamez or equivalent. CE is useful for internet related programs.

  4. I would love to use it for games like binding of isaac but it just doesn’t show up in the process list any idea why?

  5. I have CE downloaded, but I can’t seem to figure out how to use it.
    I can’t seem to obtain any values, and the speedhack won’t work at all, I’m just not used to CE on a mac, can you point me in the right direction as to how to set this up?

  6. I tried to use it with The binding of Isaac, but it dosent show up in the process list, can you help me out? Thanks!

  7. It says “Your license to use Cheat Engine has expired. You can buy a license to use Cheat Engine for 1 month for $200, 6 months for $1000 and for 1 year for only $1800. If you don’t renew your license Cheat Engine will be severely limited in it’s abilities. (e.g.: Next Scan had been disabled)”

    What the heck?

  8. help i get this error : You can’t open the application β€œcheatengine-i386” because it is not supported on this type of Mac.

  9. I downloaded it and it opens up but it does not let me do speed hack. I select my application that I want the hack on and when I press speed hack it says “DLL injection failed”.

  10. It works fine, but I can’t find the processor of the game I play; it’s Battle Panic on Or am I doing something wrong? I let the game load then open CheatEngine, but I don’t know which processor to choose, and I play on Safari btw.

  11. Can i use like speed hack for a VM, cuz the game knows when i use some hack, and i trying to accelerate the CLOCK from windows, its possible? (sorry about my english). Thx

  12. Hey Jacob. Im having the same problem that a few others are having. I cant activate the box on the table at the bottom of Cheat Engine where it says ACTIVE. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    1. I think I’m going to make a video to show everyone how to appropriately run Cheat Engine for Mac OS X. It seems someone is missing a crucial step in the installation process.

  13. It won’t let me check the boxes in Binding of Isaac. (A flash game I got on steam) I have the cheat table and process selected, but clicking on the check boxes does nothing.

    1. You got the cheat table from someone else, it runs on Mac and it works for this version number? If it’s for Windows it will not work since the memory values are different.

        1. I’ve been having the same problem, its annoying how no boxes can be checked. is it because it’s a mac or what?

  14. Hi, I don’t understand the thing about xcode, because I can’t enable the speed hack it appears me this:
    Failure enabling speedhack. (DLL injection failed): Error in line 13
    (call_dlopen): This instruction can’t be compiled

    what I can do? (Already checkout the FAQ

  15. When im trying to activate something on the Binding of issac it won’t let me tick the box, ive got the table but ive got a cracked version of issac would it be a problem with cheat engine trying to work with issac or another problem?

  16. Thanks, do you know which cheat engine is equivalent to the 6.3 which can work on mac and fix war commander e-megas?

  17. I don’t unserstand, I downloaded it. But when I try to select a program in cheat engine, it does not work. :S plz help me πŸ™‚

  18. When i downloaded the cheat engine 6.2, it is saying that This file can’t open because This is from an unidentified developer..!! What to do ??

  19. I’m trying to find out if this works for any or all the WoW games, please email me. I tried looking through the previous comments but didn’t see anything about this.

    1. It will work but it can’t save the memory values and find them later after a system restart. You could pinpoint them with cheatengine, but then you need a program decompiler to find the actual string to modify.

  20. Where can I find this ‘xcode’ installation?
    Mainly, are there any specific instruction on how it is set up from C.E?

  21. Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
    Do you have anyy tiips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Many thanks

  22. I really like what you guys are up too. This sort of clever work and reporting!

    Keep up the excellent works guys I’ve added you guys to our blogroll.

  23. Looks like the link is broken, it leads to a 404 page… I tried with chrome, safari and firefox with javascript enabled and none worked… πŸ™ Too bad!

  24. I tried downloading the file, but all over the website I see error messages, but it doesn’t stop me until I reach the final download page, after the countdown. The error message on that page is:

    Warning: call_user_func_array() expects parameter 1 to be a valid callback, class ‘quick_page_post_reds’ does not have a method ‘ppr_parse_request ‘ in /home/newage/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php on line 507 Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/newage/public_html/wp-includes/plugin.php:507) in /home/newage/public_html/myfiles/get.php on line 27

    I’m not sure what the error is, but can you look into it?

  25. There are error messages all over the site, preventing me from downloading the file. Can you look into that?

    1. Seems to work now. This week was the deadline for a subcontracting project, so I would have gotten this fixed sooner, sorry.

  26. Try This. Go to terminal, type chmod a+x then c/d to your file then push enter ig this doesn’t work idk what to say

  27. This doesn’t work on tiger, does it? I double clicked it, didn’t open. Read the read me, right clicked it, didn’t open. Am I missing something here?

    1. Personally, I don’t have Tiger, so I cannot say. But, if your machine is an Intel machine, it should work. Just right click, press open, type in your password and you are in.

  28. Help me, i am trying to enable speed hack but when i do it pops up as a error, i downloaded xcode but i havent done anything with it and IT STILL WONT WORK !!!!!
    HELP ME!!!!!!

    1. Did you restart after installing XCode? Also, check permissions and make sure you can run non-certified programs.

  29. Q) Failure enabling speedhack. (DLL injection failed): Error in line 13
    (call_dlopen): This instruction can’t be compiled
    A) Install xcode and try waiting 10 minutes between opening the target with C.E. and enabling it.

    I downloaded Xcode, but i dont know how to use it. Could you help me?

  30. I’m download Xcode but i still get this error Failure enabling speedhack. (DLL injection failed): Error in line 13
    (call_dlopen): This instruction can’t be compiled
    Should I make something on Xcode ?

    1. I know you do need XCode installed to use this function, but all issues should be sent to the official Cheat Engine forums as I did not compile this code.
