I have a game with all data using a same address, but each group of attributes have different fist offset. For exanple, I have base address is Game.dll + 0x40AF0, and next offset is different for each character's parameters, like 0x170C for first char and 0x24FC for second char. If I using normal pointers search, it'll take a very looooong time because of high offset value. And read from registers and asm code is taken time too. So is there any other way to find offset only?

the structure spider works from the base address.
give it the base address you want to use and then tick that the address must be in range and enter two times the samefinal address

it is slower than a pointerscan though

Thanks for your advice.

I have took a test and the problem of both structure spider and normal pointer scan is limit of their structure size and offset size. In my case my first offset is 6330 and it is impossible to search with size larger than that. I'll have to wait forever.

So, the quickest case here is to find out what access to the address for offset and scan the address for previous pointer.
