Is there some way to tell in advance how much space a pointer scan is going to take?

Should a game from 2004 be needing hundreds of gigabytes?

No. It depends on how many pointers it finds.

if done properly(using pointermaps of different runs) , around 2x the amount of RAM the game takes up(for the pointermaps), plus the amount space needed for a handful(thousands) of pointerscan results (a few megabytes)

If you don't use pointermaps of different runs, then around ((gameramsize/(structsize/pointerpointersize))^(level))*24 bytes
