How do I constrain a Lua AOBScan to a region? I already figured out a way to filter the AOBScan results so that only ones inside the region end up being used but I'm looking for a way to constrain the scan itself to speed it up. I found some people saying that you have to use createMemScan() to do it but I couldn't find any explanations of how to do that.

You can use these functions:
Code:

AOBScan(x,x,x,x,...):
scans the currently opened process and returns a StringList object containing all the results. don't forget to free this list when done
Bytevalue of higher than 255 or anything that is not an integer will be seen as a wildcard
AOBScan(aobstring, OPTIONAL protectionflags, OPTIONAL alignmenttype, OPTIONAL alignmentparam): see above, but here you just input one string
AOBScanUnique(aobstring, OPTIONAL protectionflags, OPTIONAL alignmenttype, OPTIONAL alignmentparam)- Integer: scans for the aobstring and returns the first result it finds and nil if nothing is found. Make sure it is unique as it will return the first result found and will return any random match
AOBScanModuleUnique(modulename, aobstring, OPTIONAL protectionflags, OPTIONAL alignmenttype, OPTIONAL alignmentparam)- Integer : scans for the aobstring in the designated module.

If you want more control (e.g. exact start/stop address), see the MemScan class in celua.txt.

Late reply but making my own MemScan did the trick, thank you! Didn't know every class gets explained in celua.txt, that's very handy and good to know.
