    if you are talking about modifying and making changes to the game files, yes you can get into trouble for it

    Well, being arrested depends on your local laws regarding data security, etc. It's unlikely you'd face criminal charges unless you were attempting to get account info or cc info but you could face civil charges if Wanmei or PWE decided to file a lawsuit against you for illegally reverse engineering the game client.

    However, if you were caught then you would most likely manage to get a permanent account ban as PWE does not take too kindly to folks messing around with the client. Also, not sure about FW but I know other PWE games run XShield iirc or some other form of anti-cheat detection software which would most likely catch you in the act but you can't not run said program since it needs to be operating correctly to let you connect to the game servers usually.

    Best advice, don't do it.

    First to ROFL at the guy with the bank robbery, cause that is impossible except if you are not willing to spend your next 20000000000 waiting for the cracking algorithm to finish.

    As on the topic data modding as far as I know is forbiden, not impossible though. To clearify for some people that does not mean "hacking" to the PWE client etc... just modifing the interface data, as Skyrim has a lot of mods. What is more this data modding those not include any influence on the PWE servers and is quite unharmful. But I would wonder why u need that? As we saw Godly alry bots and it is not really hard to make an artificial behaviour without even hacking at all, or editing any data. Why would you do that?
