As the title says, when we pointer scan for pointer paths we get multiple results. What are all of those pointer paths? Like where do they come from, its not feasible for the game to have all those different paths coded in game logic for lets say health value for example, where do all of those pointer paths come from ?

There are multiple paths you can take to get from point A to B

example: player health
game-map-first object(player)-health
game-map-player-health
game-map-enemy1-target(player)-health
soundsystem-objectthatrecentlygeneratedsound-player-health
game-lastkilledmob-killedby(player)-health
gamerender-healthvalueOnScreen-player-health
mousepointer-lastfocusedobject-player-health

some are more useful than others, you just got to check which ones are reliable enough
