      Problem with pointers in CE 6.2

      Silent VPN
      Hello. I have problem with one game, when I want to search pointers for it. I tried to it by many ways:
      1. By option "Pointer scan for this address" - There is a problem, because it found pointer to my Armor Value, but just ONCE, other times it didn't find any pointers (maybe I changed something in settings?)
      2. By option "Find out what writes to this address" - it shows me a list, I choose one with: "Address of your pointer is probably: XXXXX", but when I put those XXXXX into the New Scan and check HEX it doesn't find anything.
      3. By option "Find out what accesses to this address" - the same as in 2.

      I think 1. option was the best, but I wonder, how it suddenly stopped to work? Could someone, please, help me? I really want to find those pointers, but it doesn't want to find it.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hello Jucasiek,

      What game are you trying to find pointers for? And can you also post a few screenshots along with them. Sometimes it's easier to see things in pictures than just reading it.

      I'm playing game: Spellforce Platinum 1.52.61408 PL (I think language isn't important here)
      So, images:
      (I found my Armor value and put it in table)
      1. "Pointer scan for this address" photos:

      https://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/41/97897725.png/ - it didn't find anything

      2. "Find out what writes to this address"

      https://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/694/52971617.png/ - Before it I press "yes", change value in-game, and it shows me one option
      https://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/138/52764235.png/ - here I'm searching the address CE told me
      https://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/837/24842221.png/ - it didn't find anything

      3. "Find out what accesses to this address" is very similar to "Find out what writes to this address"

      That is all. I hope it is clear to understand those pictures.

      Thank you for posting the screenshots Jacusiek!

      That is indeed quite odd. What you can try is put the Pointer Scan on Level 7 instead of 5. Will take a bit longer than usually. While I think it might not work in the long run it is still worth the try. Also, do you have administrator rights? Try running both Cheat Engine and the Game as Administrator and see if it works that way. Also, are you running Windows 8? I've seen people having issues with Cheat Engine on Windows 8.

      Good Luck!

      Well, thank You for trying to help me, but it still doesn't work. I'm using Windows 7, not Windows 8, and I think You are right, because once I made the same pointers, but it was when I had Windows XP and everything was clear and without any problem... When I changed into Windows 7, suddenly pointers didn't work. I tried to reinstall CE, but it didn't work. Well, I think it should work. I'm searching for a pointer for "Armor" Value and it does not work, but when I search a pointer for "Wood resources" value, it works perfectly (but I have to do pointer scan more times - just too many pointers are shown for the first time, but better too many pointers than zero). I think CE ignores "Armor" value itself, but I don't know why and how. It can be also problem, because, when You normally start CE, the option "Fast Scan" is always checked, and when it is checked, CE cannot find any "Armor" value (I have to uncheck this option to make it able to find "Armor" value). Maybe I should change something in settings of CE? I hope all I wrote gave You some clues to find out, what is happening.


      EDIT: I have already found it. I just had to change maximum offset to a bigger value than it is normally 2048 (I put 20480 and I also changed the level and I finally found pointer ). Thank You anyway for big help!
