Looking to find a pointer in a desktop game.

I find the 4 byte address and find out what writes the address and find.



When I hex search the address the ECX address I don't find any static address to use just a bunch of the normal ones. Im not sure on my next step, anyone have a link to a newbie friendly tutorial this, or want to lend a hand.

Update:

So, I decide to pointerscan and I ended up with 24 addresses, and they all pointed to my HP. So if I add the pointers to my table and change the value from 20 to 200 and freeze it my HP will stay at 200 but whenever I attack a NPC/Enemy it will change there health to 200 also... not sure on what to do..

Just use the automated pointer scan.
Filter the list by setting the last offset to "1C" (the value of EBX).

If the pointer you have found also effects the target, then try a different pointer.

Thats my pointer list. When I deal damage to the enemy the values all switch to the HP of my target and then back to my HP value..

Edit: If i change the value and don't freeze it, my HP will change and wont affect the NPC/Enemy; but if I change the value/leave the value and freeze it then attack an NPC/Enemy it will update there HP to whatever I froze the value of the pointer too.(Thus defeating the purpose of the table,I don't want to lose health)

The game is Shattered Pixel Dungeon. A single-player rouge lite.
