I have a game with about 200+ item slots and about 200+ item possibilities. I've got an address listed for each slot, but do I really have to remake the dropdown list for all possible items for each address? I'm hoping there's a way to put my list somewhere once and have my dropdowns reference that list.

Is this possible?

Example:

This has been discussed several times before. Unless something has changed since then, the answer is still no.

Did you add those 200 addresses manually as well or did you use lua?
Because you can also use lua to set the dropdown values, including the link to the base

I used Excel... So, not quite manual, but there was manual work involved to set this up... I created a cheat table with a single entry, saved it, opened the resulting .ct file in notepad++ to see the format, recreated in Excel with starting address and offsets as variables, copied down the column, pasted back into notepad++, saved. lol It works, but would love a better way.

What you're describing sounds much better. I'll search for a tutorial. If you have a link, that'd be sweet, too.

Thank you!

EDIT: So, I found this lua drop down list editor and it works very well: https://forum.cheatengine.org/viewtopic.php?t=591755

Since the value string shows whether it's an item, sword, armor, etc. - it would be cool if the dropdownlist could be dynamic and attach the correct list depending on the value string. For example, if the value string shows "@Armor_001_Lower", it would only pull up a list of Armor related options. Another factor is that these items shuffle on each reload, so the list would have to be dynamic, constantly scanning for the keyword in the value string of each address in the list. Tall order! haha
