Resident Evil 4 30fps PC version has a hidden difficulty value that changes during gameplay. That value is always at address 03404B64. I can see that value if I have both the game and Cheat Engine opened in window mode side by side. I would like, however, to see that value while playing the game fullscreen.

Is that possible with Cheat Engine?

Well I have two monitors so I can say yes for me lol

More seriously though, sure. I know CE has some graphic stuff, haven't really used them, there's also ways to hook d3d etc. and do overlays the same way people do esp hacks (again, not something I really know), but there's always the simple option of creating a form with a label and making it transparent

Code:
{$lua}
[ENABLE]
if syntaxcheck then return end
TextOverlayForm = createForm(false)
local f = TextOverlayForm
  -- transparency thanks to mgr.inz.Player in http://forum.cheatengine.org/viewtopic.php?t=586609
  f.BorderStyle = 'bsNone'
  f.Color = 0x0000FF
  f.setLayeredAttributes(0xFF, 255, 3) -- make red transparent
  f.FormStyle="fsSystemStayOnTop"
local l = createLabel(f)
  l.font.size = 80
  l.font.color = 0xFF0000 -- example
  l.Font.Quality = 'fqNonAntialiased'
  l.OnMouseDown = function()
    f.dragNow()
  end
  l.OnDblClick = function()
    f.destroy()
  end
local t = createTimer(f)
t.Interval = 250
t.OnTimer = function()
  l.Caption = readInteger('03404B64')
end
f.visible = true --show() will give form focus setting visible won't

[DISABLE]
if syntaxcheck then return end
TextOverlayForm.destroy()


you can click on the text and drag it around (full screen app may minimize due to focus change but you can switch back), double clicking will close the form as will disabling the script.
