    Great tutorial, good quality.. only suggestion would be to set the debugger to english before recording since this would make things a lot more readable to many :)

    you're right Challenger, shortly before making the video, I put the language in English, in my operating system, but I forgot to change it even in the debug

    If the tutorial reaches 50 likes, the next one will be "Cracking oriented assembly", ie the essential assember to crakking a program:

    • the key instructions,
    • the registry,
    • the flags,
    • addressing and pointers

    All very intuitive and explained by who the matter knows her perfectly ...

    ehehe thank you very much, actually the limit set to do the other 50 like tutorial is just an excuse to take time, since I have to divide between work and family, but I promise you that if I have a few hours of tranquility I do the following, that more than the method enters on the asm and some tricks to not ruin the executable. I'm thinking not of a definitive tutorial, but of a modifiable support, therefore updatable, a sort of living reference for cracking, probably the next tutorial will be a powerpoint file, where you can read and go on with your time, plus support visual and images, are suitable for setting a concept beyond words, in addition the file will have a version number, obviously any external contribution could be welcome, so as not to load the burden of updating on a single person. .. I don't know it's an idea I'm developing ...

    I totally UNDERSTAND, I have a large family myself and my spare time might mean waking up at 4am
    At the moment I'm just learning about how registers works and how data pointers and information are manipulated
    So learning is like wearing floaties in the pool, when what I really want to be doing is swimming with the big boys haha
    Your tutorial was great because I was able to follow it and understand what was going on, so congratulations on getting the message across, and hope you get time to enjoy teaching again soon

    I'd like to click like button more then once for such a straight-forward tutorial, but I can't :) As a newbie I can say it's really hard to find tuts as clear as this one, but on the other hand on this board I've met great reversers like JonArbuckle who never hesitate to give away their time and effort just to help, so I'm lucky. Thank you for the tut.

    Great tutorial! Same procedure with x64dbg can be applied to crack a .NET application too?

    Good question. No! with .NET applications, you can crack them, decompiling the application with programs like Reflector, because a compiled in .NET relies on the Microsoft framework, while the other applications rely directly on the Windows API.
