Summary0000134: CE 5.5 captures too short byte code on auto-assemble
DescriptionHere is the code:
00519F44 - 74 07 - je 00519f4d
00519F46 - 66 8b 10 - mov dx,[eax] <- this is what I have highlighted
00519F49 - 66 89 50 02 - mov [eax+02],edx
00519F4D - d9 46 40 - fld dword ptr [esi+40]

I click Tools -> Auto-assemble.
I click Templates -> Cheat Table framework code
I click Templates -> Code injection
I click Ok on the address.
This is the template the CE gives me:

--- clip --- clip --- clip --- clip --- clip ---
//code from here to '[DISABLE]' will be used to enable the cheat
alloc(newmem,2048) //2kb should be enough

jmp newmem

newmem: //this is allocated memory, you have read,write,execute access
//place your code here

mov dx,[eax]
mov [eax+02],edx

jmp returnhere

//code from here till the end of the code will be used to disable the cheat
mov dx,[eax]
mov [eax+02],edx
//Alt: db 66 8B 10 66 89
--- clip --- clip --- clip --- clip --- clip ---

Now, take a look at the jump:
jmp newmem

and the original code:
mov dx,[eax]
mov [eax+02],edx
//Alt: db 66 8B 10 66 89

The byte code following //Alt: db ... is missing the last two bytes that have been NOPed out. Maybe the additional NOPs are not counted (only the length of the jump itself) when the byte code is copied, so it is shorter?
Additional InformationI noticed this because CE assembles one byte shorter code and I need the byte code.
Let me know if you need more info.
Thank you for fixing.

yes, it's a bug
also, there's a second bug here.
The disassembler should have shown it as
mov [eax+02],dx
instead of
mov [eax+02],edx

(and using mov [eax+02],dx instead of bytecode would solve your problem as well)

2nd bug (wrong disassembler) was already fixed in the svn
