I'm a beginner in this so please assist me?

I opened calculator and attached it, then typing in a number and increasing it, but none of 2 byte, 4 byte, floating or double is finding the value I type in.

I have done the tutorial and have successfully edited some games with it, but I want to understand more how the editor works, but trying to hack something simple as the windows calculator does not work. Is CE specifically made for games only ?

You should know that the edit box the number as a string.change value type to "String" and enable the "UTF-16" then write 2 in calculator then back to ce search for 2 then delete 2 and write 4 back to ce and search for 4 then back again to calculator and delete the value if see cheat engine you find address of calculator. Very Happy Wink

With other search type is hard to find the value.

Another interesting thing about Calculator is that it stores values 0-9 in a single address & then from there it uses another address for the next value so the value 164 would be stored in three different addresses Very Happy

No.If you enable the "UTF-16" then search you find a one correct address.
In column four you see type of address ,double click on address type in "Length"set value to any value(for example:9999999).
depend to the length of string that you search.for example if you search for 54 then search for 62.should the length of 2 or 3 or ,,, string is equal.

UTF-16 (16-bit Unicode Transformation Format) is a character encoding capable of encoding all 1,112,064 valid code points of Unicode. The encoding is variable-length, as code points are encoded with one or two 16-bit code units. (also see Comparison of Unicode encodings for a comparison of UTF-8, -16 & -32)

UTF-16 developed from an earlier fixed-width 16-bit encoding known as UCS-2 (for 2-byte Universal Character Set) once it became clear that 16 bits were not sufficient for Unicode's user community.

you can change values tha are stored in:

MS (memory save/store)
MR ( memory restore/recall)

by doing 4 byte scans.

On Cheat Engines main window, also tick the 'Writable' checkbox until it is a square instead of a checkjoe. This way it will also include non-writable memory addresses in the scan results. This can be a common cause of not finding results on many applications.
