On tutorial 6, i'm trying to use pointer scan for this address but it always came up with 0 results. I can manually find the pointer. What I am missing? In some games I can't find the pointer manually so i want to know how to use this option but it ALWAYS came up with 0 results ALWAYS in any game any time.

just tested and it work perfectly.

all what i did is:


  • find value 100
  • change the value
  • search for new value
  • add to address-list
  • right-click then pointer scan
  • change the value again
  • rescan the memory to find the new value.


Code:
offset: 0
"Tutorial-x86_64.exe"+002CAA40

well mine is not working at all. i tried that in the other games as well still got no results. When i save the pointer scan results it end up with these files:
1.ptr
1.PTR.results
1.PTR.results.0
1.PTR.results.1

when i tried to open 1.ptr it say no results and when i tried to open 1.PTR.results it says corrupted pointer scan file and others as well.
Maybe it is the problem?

you cant open the result files, only ptr files.

and i dont know whats wrong, really i have no clue.

you can take the address and add it to address-list, but make sure you tick on "pointer" when selecting add address manually.

there is no problem about finding manually but i cannot find the pointer when it is about more complicated multi-level pointers Sad

Next CE version should have this fixed. You can try custom CE builds to check it (you can try mine "update17.07.31 - ae5010a.7z").
