Stellaris Cheat Engine Guide

Just like other Paradox games, Stellaris can be very difficult—not just for beginners, but for pros too! With the many components of the game that need to be managed, it’s no wonder that players look for a way to cheat. In this article, we will go through how you can use Cheat Engine, the free-to-use and popular cheating tool, to unlock a number of hacks in Stellaris (which we will list later in the article).

For the sake of this article, we will assume that you have already installed Cheat Engine; if not, you can find a complete guide on this website. Click on the Cheat Engine Guide button in the top bar to access it. For help locating this, refer to the image below called ‘Cheat Engine Guide‘.

List of Stellaris cheats

Step 1: Stellaris Cheat Table Download

Now that we’ve looked at what’s included, it’s time to actually download the thing!

The first step is to download Stellaris Cheat Engine Table v3.8.3 (click here) — now, I know your first thoughts when you click that link: It’s in Russian! Before you close the tab and run your anti-virus software, hear me out.

Download Safety

Not only have I had no issues with downloading and using the table from this website, but I have also run it through various anti-virus scanners, such as VirusTotal. See for yourself; the image below displays the results.

However, we still suggest that you run the file through VirusTotal yourself prior to actually using it; better to be safe than sorry!

The only reason I am addressing this ‘virus’ aspect of this so heavily is that an unfortunate truth of the internet is that not everything you download is safe. And we at CheaterForge strive to ensure every software we recommend is safe.

Once you’re on the website, we suggest switching the language to English. If you’re on Google Chrome (which you probably should be), there is a google translate feature that can be enabled to automatically translate everything on screen. To enable it manually, click on the little Google Translate button to the right of your search bar (refer to ‘Google Translate Button’ below).

With the website now in English, you should see a list of versions available. At the time of writing, the latest release of Stellaris is v. 3.8.2, so that will be used as an example in this article.

Click on the version and select ‘Download Without Registration’ and then ‘Download From Site”. This will start downloading the Stellaris Cheat Engine Table.

Keep in mind where you downloaded the file! You will need this later on…

Step 2: Set up Cheat Engine and Stellaris

Next, open Cheat Engine and Stellaris. With both open, select the Stellaris process from Cheat Engine’s process list (refer to ‘PC Button (Open Process List)‘ below).

Step 3: Import Stellaris’ Cheat table

Locate where you downloaded the Cheat Table (as discussed in Step 1), which will typically be found in your Downloaded or Quick Access folders. Drag the .CT file (Cheat Table file) into the Cheat Engine’s bottom box; refer to ‘How to Use Cheat Table‘ below.

Doing this will load the long list of hacks we mentioned earlier.

Step 4: Open a Save File on Stellaris

Tab back into Stellaris and load in a save file. This can be a new or existing one; it does not make a difference.

Step 5: Activate the Cheats

From here, you can you any of the cheats that are included in the table. All you have to do is double-click and change the value!

Can I Cheat in Stellaris?

In terms of cheating in Stellaris, there are two methods players use to cheat: (1) using console commands and (2) using Cheat Engine. Console commands are a more standard way of cheating; however, they cannot be used in multiplayer, nor do they allow players to change everything they may wish to. On the other hand, Cheat Engine can be used (although it takes slightly more time to set up) in order to unlock some more unique hacks in the game.

    Mark Tootra is most definitely a hard-core gamer; one that has been playing for all his life. From a young age, he loved souls-like games—one problem; THEY'RE DIFFICULT. With this, he eventually downloaded Cheat Engine, which took him down a path that changed his life. Now, with his thousands of hours, he calls himself "experienced" and "well-versed" in the realm of using hacks. And, it is for this reason, he began to share his thoughts, ideas, and knowledge.
