I'll do my best to explain what i want to do, i want the user of the cheat table to be able to write a value of his choice into a field, let's say the value has an address of 0_Timer and then 0_Timer is used like an address in an AOB injection that writes to a timer, as some challenges require to do something under a certain time, others require to do over a certain time.

So basically, add an address that is not a normal one (eg. 02ABD600) but it has a name like "0_Timer" or whatever, and the AOB script reads from it. So the code would look something like this..

Code:

  fstp dword ptr [esi+000000F4]
  mov [esi+000000F4],0_Timer
  jmp return


Thanks in advance!

PS.
Sorry for the botched explanation and/or if i am coming out ignorant for, not googling it, in my defense i am not 100% sure how it's called hence why i can't exactly google it. Smile

PPS. If it helps any the timer / value should be a float.

EDIT:
I figured it out, this is what i used, not sure how well i did it but it works Smile

Code:

[ENABLE]
alloc(z_TimerAddress,$2)
registersymbol(z_TimerSeconds)
label(z_TimerSeconds)
z_TimerAddress:
z_TimerSeconds:
dd 0

[DISABLE]
dealloc(z_TimerAddress)
unregistersymbol(z_TimerSeconds)


Got it to work, However for some reason, when i do
Code:
  mov [esi+000000F4],z_TimerSeconds

it just sets the timer to 0, no matter the value in the actual address Question

Code:
[enable]
alloc(0_Timer,04)
registersymbol(0_Timer)

... // add 0_Timer as an address manually

0_Timer:
dd 00

[disable]
unregistersymbol(0_Timer)
dealloc(0_Timer)
