Registration Terms

Welcome to Tuts 4 You!

Before you browse through our forums to create topics and posts it will be helpful for you to know some things about the way our board works and it is very important that you read all our rules to avoid a suspension or a ban. We do not like to impose suspensions or bans but we do need to keep up the integrity of the board. Whether by accident or by design you risk being punished if you do not follow and adhere to these rules. While there may seem to be a lot of rules listed here if you have a good read through them you will find most (if not all) are common sense and sections actually provide informative information.

01. Your Expected Behaviour and Attitude

This is a family board and we expect all members to conduct themselves accordingly, in a polite and friendly manner, this means no swearing and bad language. We will not tolerate flaming or disrespect to other board members including religious, political and racial abuse. We will not tolerate obnoxious or obscene material posted anywhere on this site. Typing with caps lock enabled or using large and overly colourful fonts is considered as shouting and no one wants to talk with people who shout loudly at them.

Administrators and moderators will deal with unruly members so you do not need to to be drawn in to any confrontation.

Please watch this short Shockwave Flash film, "Posting and You".

02. How to Best Post For Help?

If you need help with a particular problem it is always best to start off researching by searching through the board using the Search Form or looking for a tutorial or paper using the main sites Search Engine. There is over a decades worth of information stored within this boards forums so it is possible the question to your problem may have been directly or indirectly asked and answered before.

If you fail to find the answer you were looking for the next best choice is to use Google or another quality search engine like DuckDuckGo.

Should you find yourself needing to ask a question in someones topic such as a posted script or tool please read through the topic to see if someone else has experienced the same problem and resolved it.

When making a topic or post please do so in the appropriate forum or topic. Use good spelling and grammar, be clear describing the problem and try to provide as much detail and information as you can. Doing so presents you clearly and legibly giving you the best possible outcome of a reply with the answer you want. Try answering these questions when creating your topic or post...

  • What is the problem?
  • What are you trying to do?
  • What have you done to try and resolve the problem?
  • What tools have you been using?
  • What is your operating system?
  • Have you already done any research and if so where have you searched?
  • Have you got any snapshots you can include in your post?

03. I Am New to Reverse Code Engineering - Where to Start?

We regularly receive questions from people about where they should begin trying to learn reverse code engineering. The following list is intended to be a very basic starting point.

Spoiler

04. Should I Learn How to Code?

If you want to do serious reverse code engineering work and really master the subject then, yes for sure, you will need to learn how to code and understand the system you are working on. Having a proper understanding of how your operating systems API's work and behave will put you in very good stead when reversing.

Where to start off? This can be a very subjective question to answer particularly if you want to reverse a specific language or framework. If you are new to coding and simply want to learn a language PureBasic is one recommendation. PureBasic gives you; full access to the operating systems API's, compiles very easily to both native 32-bit and 64-bit code. It comes with an easy to use inbuilt debugger and development environment and is cross platform so you can write one piece of code that will compile for MacOS, Windows and Linux operating systems. PureBasic is therefore ideally placed as a language for you to start with and has a very easy learning curve to peak your interest and enthusiasm in programming with a good community for support when you need it. With PureBasic giving you the capability to inline x86 assembler commands directly embedded in your source code it can be a powerful long term coding tool. Wikipedia provides further information about the language.

05. Ignoring Other Members

You can ignore other board members or block their posts, signatures and messages. You can do this from your Ignore Preferences.

06. Additional Board Features

Gallery - gives board members the ability to upload and host snapshots, graphics and artistic works. It is easier to view graphics en-mass in the Gallery than it would be via individual forum topics. It can be used to host wallpapers, screenshots, desktop screens, funny photos, etc.

Downloads - allows board members to upload their files and works making viewing and sharing en-mass a lot easier. The Downloads page automatically creates a new topic in the appropriate forum for you. This means you can upload your files to Downloads and not have to worry about creating a follow on topic in one of the forums. The new topic will provide a direct link to your download with a screenshot. Downloads supports various categories; scene demos and intros, ANSII artwork, chiptunes, icons, fonts and various other categories. Keygen and patch templates are allowed in their respective categories, active crack releases will be deleted and the member banned.

Blogs - can be about anything you want providing that it does not breach The Board Rules. Blogs must not be used as an a -> b -> c -> guide to cracking commercial software. Unused (that means blank or empty) blogs will be deleted.

Chat - makes it easy for members to communicate with each other in the community as a group or in a private chat. Only members with a minimum of five posts will be able to access and use this feature. The Board Rules apply, anyone caught breaking these rules will be banned from using Chat and quite possibly the board.

07. Help and Support

If you require additional support or information on how this board and all of it's features work please start a topic in Site Bug Reports and Technical Issues.

08. Your Personal Details and Profile

All members can configure and change their personal details and profile, to do this go to My Settings.

  • Members with at least 1 post can have a custom title
  • Email addresses can be changed and updated but they must always be verified
  • Display names can be changed every 30 days.

09. Logging in to the Board

This board may be different to others in the way you are required to login. All members must login using their email address and password.

10. Attachments and Scene Warez

No attachments must be uploaded which contain commercial or copyright material - binaries of any type. An attachment containing commercial or copyright material will be deleted immediately and at the moderators discretion the topic or post may be trashed. Scene warez containing cracks and commercial content is not tolerated on this board - this includes the posting of bug reports for scene released material.

11. Banners / Signatures / Avatars

Members are allowed to customise their avatars. Banners and signatures are no longer enabled for use on this board.

12. Crack Requests

This is a serious reverse engineering community for people who have a real interest in reverse code engineering. It is not aimed at people seeking the removal of a protection from a specific commercial application. We take crack requests very seriously, anyone requesting a crack including monetary offers for the work in any of the forums, through Chat or private messages, etc. will be banned.

13. Spam and Bots

Spam and bots will not be tolerated on this board. Any "member" spamming the board or found to be a bot will be banned immediately.

14. Disposable Email Addresses

Temporary or disposable email addresses are not to be used. We do not send spam or illicit mail nor pass on your details to a third party so there is no reason for anyone to use a temporary email address. Any member found to be using such an email address can either find unused accounts deleted or invalidated until it is updated. We will treat any member using a temporary email address as being a spam or bot account.

15. Privacy Statement

We take your privacy seriously. We do not; collect, disclose, sell, transmit or divulge your private details, data and content to any third party. Neither do we purposely track, gather or log your actions to identify or monitor you. However like all other websites we do make regular daily and historical backups and carry out normal temporary server logging. Remember there is no privacy on the internet, if you are posting or creating a topic in a public forum for everyone to see be careful at what you post!

16. Deleting Accounts

We rarely get requests to delete accounts and if requested we will refuse simply because majority of the time the member wants to delete their bad history and start a new clean account. Think very carefully before you decide to create an account whether you really want to be a member here. Think even more carefully before you post and how you may be perceived in the future. If asked we will not delete the account once it has been registered but we can suspend them if you no longer wish to use it. If this is something you would like to proceed with please contact an Administrator.

17. BBCode

BBCode is no longer supported on this board. We strongly recommend you to use the editors features for formatting of your posts. BBCode is an old technology that will eventually be phased out in favour of HTML compliant tags.

18. Complaints and Moderating Issues

If you have a complaint regarding the moderating of a topic or post please contact an Administrator with details and reason for your complaint. General questions and queries can be asked and resolved in the Bug Reports & Technical Issues forum. If you are not registered to the board or lost your ability to post or send private messages through the board you can contact an Administrator via the Contact Us form.

19. Contact Us

If you use the Contact Us form please remember to include a contact email address, without this we cannot reply back to you. Alternatively there is a Contact Form accessible from the main site.

20. Finally!
