I want the program to check the register every time it runs here, but it can't!

{$lua} blocks act more like preprocessor macros. They run before most other things and are replaced by whatever string they return (if any).

You could call Lua code to run from the game, but that would be ridiculous for something like this. Just use assembly.

Code:
newmem:
  cmp eax,1
  je short checkagain
originalcode:
  mov [esi+ecx*4],ebx
exit:
  mov eax,ebx
  jmp returnhere
checkagain:
  lea eax,[ecx-C]
  cmp eax,1
  ja short originalcode
  jmp short exit

PS: the 0x prefix exists in Lua.
