Summary0000029: Possible Memory Leak via Pointer Scanner?
DescriptionUsing the pointer scanner to scan for a Lv2 or higher pointer seems to cause Cheat Engine to use over 200k memory and does not free the memory ever. Tested with two different games on two different computers and was able to reproduce on both.

the virtual memory wrapper for the pointerscan didn't have a valid destructor declaration so it never got called. Causing the copy of the game's memory to not be freed at all.
