Is it possible to resize the UI in certain games?

RE: Is it possible to resize the UI in certain games?
Best way to learn assembly for limited use is exactly that, trying to do something, then just searching for what you don't understand. Definitely better than studying books blindly without looking at the real thing.

Depending on how the game works, it might be possible without learning mips, but there's a high chance your patch will have to constantly fight against the game which is bad and veeeery wasteful.
There's also another problem, with changing variables you risk that the game might store different data there where what you're patching does not exist, there's an example which I really like in Patapon 3 where someone created a cheat to write different reward chests, but those rewards are stored only on the rewards screen, and by luck the same location in memory is storing some pointers to savedata outside of that screen, so in result his cheat permanently breaks savedata. It's my favourite example not only because it's so extreme it permanently breaks stuff for player using it, but also because there's even some wiki site blaming hackers on ruining Patapon 3 multiplayer by intentionally breaking other people's savedata which is stupid as it's all about awfuly made cheat which was certainly not made in a way to intentionally break anything. It's also not even anti-cheat or anything alike, the game is just optimized well and reuses memory for many things, so cheats which patch variables at fixed location will never be safe there, there are many other games with similar problems just not as dramatic and pointers does not make that safe either as the same pointer can be reused for many things as well. Modifying code is always safest, althrough some generic functions can also be reused for many things, if you can't find more specific function you can still detect what you want to patch by register or memory values and filter out everything else. - Custom PPSSPP Shaders! - simple CE scripts to help creating CWCheats, - CWCheat workarounds.
