Alright, I'll just cut to the chase. I'm using the trial version of the Cheat Engine 7.1 for MacOS, and am trying out cheat engine for Terraria singleplayer. After watching some videos, I've learnt how to create a script to one hit kill enemies. However, after attaching the script to the cheat table, after clicking on the activate button, the cheat engine and the game will just freeze, and won't respond. Even without changing anything, activating the script will still cause the cheat engine to freeze. For the record, manually changing the code in the debugger thingy works.
I've attached the code below(in a screenshot, because I don't know how this website works), hopefully someone will help me with the question, it'll be greatly appreciated!

Have you tried doing a manual array of byte scan for 89 83 80 01 00 00 f3 ? (Set all scan regions to grey before scanning) Does that freeze as well?

Also, the 3th param of alloc will even fail in windows, that address should have been the aobscan result

OK so I've tried searching for the array of bytes with all regions to grey, and it just said "Scan error:Controller:No Readable memory found."

and yeah, I checked the tutorial video's code; the alloc function didn't have a 3rd parameter(he was using CE 6.4)

what should I do if I want to continue using CE?

ok, allocating on existing memory freezes CE. I'll check it out (it's not related to the aob, which is just slow)

I found it and have a way to fix it, but it did show a more deeper issue that I'd like to figure out why it happens first. Also merging some other fixes into it as well
