what ce version do you use ?
Do you have code with createNativeThread running in your ce in the background ?

do you use special characters in your descriptions ?

6.3
Not to my knowledge
Other than ?, --, >,=,# nothing that I would call special.

I don't even have a download for 6.3 anymore

and yeah, it's quite possible that it may have a bug.
perhaps I named it 'description' instead of 'Description' (6.3 may not be case insensitive on the first char like the newer ones)
or just a typo (e.g I often type descrption/descrition by accident)

I downloaded 6.4 or 6.5 a year or so ago, maybe longer and opened up a few tables and none of my codes worked. So my reasoning was start from scratch learning the new way of coding or continue with 6.3 that worked. I chose the easier path.

Yes, there was a bug with Description property.

https://github.com/cheat-engine/cheat-engine/commit/a0e18e68a95d9a26762a21bdcee012fdc1c2e9ed

Fixed two months later after release.


If you are still using 6.3, use method "whichRec.getDescription()" instead of property "whichRec.Description"

off-topic, but just to let other people know who stumble upon this topic
Code:

tonumber(memoryrecord_getValue(addresslist_getMemoryRecord(al,x)))

can be rewritten to
Code:

tonumber(al[x].Value)


Following this then would setting the value be
Code:
tonumber(al[x].Value) = some number

Carrying on with this train of thought.
Code:
al = getAddressList()
x=56
y=0
whichRec = al.MemoryRecord[x]
print(whichRec.Address)>>output is 24cd60f
whichForwardRec = tonumber(whichRec.Address) + y>>Error:attempt to perform arithmetic on a nil value. I guess no Mathematics on Properties
whichForwardRec = whichRec.Address
print(whichForwardRec)>> output is 24cd60f
print(tonumber(whichForardRec) + 1)>> Error:attempt to perform arithmetic on a nil value.

As you can see I first tried to add to a Property, I guess that can't be accomplished.
So I set a variable to the Property and then attempted addition on that variable, still can't perform that addition.
Why does the second addition fail?
How may I obtain "forward addresses" to be used with a writeBytes("forward address", somenumber)
