I know the first 2 starting offsets of a pointer to my float value "test_x64.exe"+555E8C0 + 12F0 + 20.
And i know the last offset is 18 that im able to fill in.
But i don't see an option to fill in starting offsets.

If i was able to fill in the starting offsets it would reduce the the level from 12-14 to 10-12 wich would be a huge improvement in scanning time.

How would I be able to take advantage of the known starting offsets in cheatengine?

In the pointerscan config window there is an option for starting offsets

Also, starting offsets will not speed up the scan, it just deletes results that are not starting with those offsets (unless you know the base address as well, in which case you can specify the address it points to as region the base must be in and then concatenate afterwards)

Thank you for your quik response Very Happy

I don't see the option for starting offsets in the config window only the end offsets option
And yes I have the base address.

ah yes, that was for rescan


anyhow as i mentioned first follow the pointer of the first 2 offsets to get the address and then use that as base

then 9n all the results just add the base
