I have an address for wall collision and it works perfectly. The problem is I find it impossible to get a pointer for that address. Tried Right click and do what access this address and what writes to this address, nothing pops up when I move around the player. Tried with Pointer Scan multiple times and multiple levels with no luck. Is it possible this address has no pointers at all? Not an expert with cheat engine but I find this very weird.

ehm, i cant believe there is nothing accessing the address as you said.
try again and do some actions, about pointers there must be a pointer.

try increasing the range for pointer scanner as well as the offset value, if its 64bit try increasing search field from 00 to ff by default its 00 7f.

and if its static address, then you dont need a pointer.

In Cheat Engine's settings, go to Debugger Options and switch the Debugger Method to something else, such as "Use VEH Debugger". Restart CE and try again. Sometimes the debugger type being used can't do certain features for some games/setups.
