I am playing Gran Turismo 4 on PCSX2 and I want to hack the credit.
When I search for a value a list of values come up then I go to game and buy some things and enter the new value and hit "next scan" nothing show up.
I even tried the physical memory search and it is the same.

Can someone help me ?

finding values using cheat engine never was difficult.

no one can give you a real help, because you stuck in the very easy level.
try every scan method, its not always exact value, it might be higher than screen value, or it can be lower than screen value.

in past i was playing on ps2 emu. and i noticed that like
50% - 75% of games doesnt use alignment by 4, well not everything in these games. but some specific values.

remember try every scan method.
usually and most of the time you will find your values on 4 byte or float.

I've found that many emulators use the "big endian" format when storing values, which means that the bytes are stored in reverse from what CE normally searches for ("little endian").

Dark Byte provided the code for 2 and 4 byte big endian custom types (and how to "install" them) here

I have searched all different value types and also tried the "big endian" method and still didn't get any results.

I presume you have an unmodified PS2?
If it will play DVD Movies OK (mostly they are dual layer) it ought to be able to handle the game. My PAL PS2 is fairly ancient so I am wondering if I will have any problems (not tried a movie recently but it was normally fine with a dual layer disk).
