Hello, I wonder why sometimes when I aob scan with hex it doesn't return any addresses, but sometimes it does? What I do is copy the bytes from an assembler script, then put them to the scan and try to find addresses if I need to update something with the script. Thanks for any help.

make sure you uncheck "writable" option in games that use module addresses, in other cases you can keep it checked.

forgot to mention one other common mistake many users do:

dont ever scan for array of byte of an activated script, when the script is activated means the instruction is hooked and replaced with a jump.

Yep that's a good thing to remember. Sometimes I activate a script just to see if the bytes change, so that way I can be pretty sure that it's the address I want.
Btw, your advice worked perfectly in the first game I tried it in, thanks! Smile
The game was Fallout 4. Though I'm not sure how to specify a module address.
