This isn't a bug. Nowhere in the tutorial it tells you to "scroll up by 4" at most it says, as an alternative method to scroll up to the start of the pointer fetching, which in the 5.5 tutorial is quite a big chunk of code.

That's why you should do the original method of finding what accesses each intermediate pointer and getting the offsets that way, till you finally get to the base pointer

While in 5.4 you could do that, it didn't represent a real game situation (really, real games don't use pointers like in the 5.4 tutorial, at least not so close together) 5.5 has spread the pointer fetching apart a bit for a more real game experience
