Summary0000107: Base pointer error
DescriptionThe problem occurs when i use the 'Try to find base pointer' option, as soon as i use the option to find a base pointer at any game or program a message pops up "Error while scanning:" and the scan closes.
Additional InformationI'm not sure if the screenshot will help but the message always shows on the same moment.

You're right. The new scan routines has mode this obsolete inocompatible

2 solutions:
1: try ce 5.3
2: find the actual pointer, then you don't need this option.
This routine is only semi-usefull when you find out the original pointer was wrong. But you can already know that beforehand because the address isn't green in the addresslist.

anyhow, to find it manually:
do a hexadecimal scan for addresstofind-offset1
then do a hexscan for the found address-offset2
repeat that till all the offste shave been done

Perhaps you get multiple paths, but that can't be helped

I tried on 5.4 as well and it works there but none of my tables are compatible anymore...

hmm, weird. Anyhow:
If you make sure your tables don't contain any structure information you can make it compatible by doing the following:
In the processlist click on "Open file"
click add address manually and add address "b"
change the 8 to 7
and reopen ce
the table can now be loaded

well, i tried to use it with 5.4 and 5.3but they have the tendency to crash the program as soon as i attach the debugger so i can't even get a starting pointer.

I found something that might help: when hyperscan is enabled the error message won't pop up but the scan just opens and closes instantly.
