Hi, I'm trying to poke at an old game on PCSX2. I had been trying to find a solid pointer for the character position through the debugger, but had not been having much luck. I finally spent a while trying to figure out why and actually discovered that it's on a linked-list-like structure which seems to hold structs for some sort of dynamic game object.

I've have some code that traverses the linked list:

Code:

currentblock = readInteger(0x2036C080) --read the pointer to the first block

while ((currentblock ~= 0) and (currentblock ~= nil)) do
  print(readString(currentblock + 0x20000000))

  currentblock=readInteger(currentblock + 0x20000024)   --get next block
end


This also prints a label that each node has, for example:

Code:

HEAD
NONAME
NONAME
NONAME
NONAME
NONAME
NONAME
NONAME
NONAME
NONAME
NONAME
NONAME
Quake

I want to be able to get the address of any particular node (in this case, the Player node) and use its address in the Cheat Table if possible.
