I'm using the latest github build of CE so that memory scanning works with open file, and i'm using openfileasprocess/saveopenedfile.

Everything works fine when used as a cheat table, but once i save it as an .EXE, saveopenedfile seems to stop working.

Normally saveopenedfile will save a copy of the file you are modifying in the folder where the cheat table is located, but when saved as an .EXE it wont modify the original file or create a copy of it.

Also i had to transfer the file "standalonephase2.dat" from the cheat engine 6.7 bin folder to the github compiled CE folder since it gave an error when trying to create the .exe, saying the file wasnt found.

I get the same problem though when saving the cheat table as an .EXE using regular CE 6.7, so i'm not sure if it has to do with that standalonephase2.dat file.

edit: updated title for clarity
also .CETRAINER works like normal

edit2:
it works as an .exe if i use the same filename:

Code:

FileName= dialog.FileName
openFileAsProcess(FileName,false)
...
SaveOpenedFile(FileName)


but if i do this so it doesnt overwrite the file, it wont create a new copy:

Code:

FileName= dialog.FileName
openFileAsProcess(FileName,false)
...
SaveOpenedFile("new copy")


this is fine for me, but if someone knows why the .exe wont save a new copy or how to fix it that would be ideal

Use the TrainerOrigin variable for the path where the trainer exe is

i'm unsure how to use TrainerOrigin since saveopenedfile only has one parameter for the file's name

also, can the file be easily saved in the location of the file you are modifying, rather than the trainer location?
