I recently tried using a pointer scan on a game I usually do it on.
I did everything I always do, scanned for value, found one result, right click, pointer scan for this address, ok and then it starts scanning and immediately stops and returns no results.
I went to this forum to try and find a solution to this problem, I made sure that there are no non-ascii characters in the pointer result path, I tried downgrading the cheat engine version and still nothing, I tried changing offset and value still nothing, I even tried other games and programs I use cheat engine on, and on everything the pointer scan refuses to show any results.
The only program I manged to make it work on is the cheat engine tutorial.
So I was wondering if anybody has any idea why this is happening now when the pointer scanning was working flawlessly before? Does any other computer setting maybe influence that?
Thanks.

Yes, I even tried putting it on the external drive with 900gb of free space even though when the scanning worked it didn't even take up 1gb.

How large does the size usually have to be? Because I tried several already, always the same result. I even tried maxing it out or putting random sizes and levels to whatever just to see if something will change, but no.

Oh hey that actually worked now, I mean it took a lot more time than before on scanning, but I found the pointer in the end.
Didn't test out that size and level before, thought it didn't need to go that far.
Thanks Very Happy
