The Class 'CombatFighter' has some initiative fields I care about. (trying to figure out combat order mechanics) .

The base class of 'CombatFighter' is 'BaseFighter'.

'BaseFighter' has fields/pointers towards 'FighterStats' [bunch of calculated stats Attack Power, Evade, Crit Chance, HitPoints, Etc ..] has fields/pointers towards 'FighterRecord' [base stats/ CHARACTER NAME Stamina/base health/ etc].

-----------
Using dissect structure / find instances of object I've been able to build pointer chains from a 'FighterStats' base address all the way to a character's name.

My current problem is how do I reach the character's name from a 'CombatFighter' object?

Dissecting 'CombatFighter' structure doesn't also add its baseobject's fields ('BaseFighter').

I figured out .... eventually .

Turned to be trivial just as I 'feared'. So trivial in fact that I wonder why CE doesn't do it automatically (add the base object fields also on dissection)

I've eventually noticed the offsets for fields in the child structure start a bit further than usual. ( Because the beginning offsets are reserved for the base class and its base class and so forth )..

ALL I HAD TO DO WAS:

[7:11 AM] peddroelm: just right click add element
[7:11 AM] peddroelm: get offset from base class
[7:11 AM] peddroelm: m_record name it
[7:12 AM] peddroelm: type pointer
[7:12 AM] peddroelm: point to structure of type FighterRecord 0 offset (add / dissect that structure before too)
repeat for FigtherStats structure
[7:12 AM] peddroelm: and BAM!
[7:13 AM] peddroelm: from combatfighter all the way to name under 60 seconds
[7:13 AM] peddroelm: this guy is named 'Regulator'

Mono Magic is stronk !
