Do the developers put the codes in the game? Do they spent all that time making up commands like X Y A X LEFT? and how are they on the internet so fast? Just really who made the cheats and how are the put in games..

I think the developers send the info to a site ahead of time and that site gives info to other sites.

only a newb who wants to beat every game by cheating would post such a thread as this :lol: lol jk but I think that the developers put the cheats in the game before they release it.

Yes, cheat codes have been programmed into the game in most cases. Scripts are a different thing, though...

I frequently use cheats, they can be quite entertaining, especially NPC spawn commands.

The makers, the coders, are the ones who place the codes into the game, And are likely to be the ones to release them on their forums. If not, they may be found inside the game during credits or perchance of people hexing them, or just looking at the code.

Too many different ways to list.

Cheating on single player is just simple commands you can use in the game. Cheating/Hacking on multiplayer is programming, codes, that sorta thing.

Most cheat codes seem to be put in to the game with the purpose of allowing it to be easily debugged.
