How To Pointer Scan Faster (Like a Boss Edition)
2 Methods Traditional & Multiple PointerMaps
Traditional Pointer Scanning with 1 pointermap:
1) Use 1 pointermap
2) Define last offset
3) Use Value instead of address scan
4) Define base module address range
5) Restart Game + rescan until you get diminishing returns
Results of this method:
36000 = Results with default settings
32000 = Results with base module defined
2000 = Results with base module + last offset defined
2000 = Results with pointermap
140 = Results after restart + rescan
118 = Results after second restart
New updated for Cheat Engine 6.7 here is a video guide to explain how to complete Cheat Engine's built in tutorial.
The first video explains Steps 1-5 which are extremely beginner oriented, so skip these if you're decent with Cheat Engine.
Even if you're decent with Cheat Engine, check out the second video, maybe I'm better explaining it than other people
If anyone is asking for help finding pointers or basic cheat engine skills please point them to this video series!
Step 6: Pointers
Step 7: Code Injection
Step 8: Multi-level pointers
Step 9: Shared Op Code
Here's the little template I use for finding multi level pointers, it works really well if you follow the video
Address = Value = ?
base ptr -> address + offset4 = address
base ptr -> address + offset3 = address
base ptr -> address + offset2 = address
static base -> address + offset1 = address
Just 2 quick tips, basic knowledge for coding applications in Visual Studio that are particularly useful when making external hacks that use OpenProcess and require administrator access.
GH Quick Tips: How to run Visual Studio as an administrator everytime and how to compile your applications to run as admin when executed by your end users. By using a manifest file which is basically a resource built into the binary, it will prompt User Account Control to elevate the process to administrator mode.
Run Visual Studio as Administrator
Windows 8 & 10:
Right click devenv.exe and select "troubleshoot compatibility"
