Summary0000051: CE 5.4.2 - Cannot add pointer
DescriptionI found the right address for Warlords Battlecry II - 1.04 beta patch to hack the money.

I run a pointer scan on the address.
I get one result: Battlecry II.exe+002973CC
When I double-click the result, I get this error:
Access violation at address 00404F90 in module "Cheat Engine.exe". Write of address FFFFFFF8.

In the end, instead of a pointer, a simple address is added to the table (which is already there).

I have CE 5.4.2.
Additional InformationHappens every time I double-click the pointer scan result.

If you need more testing, please email me.

try saving this pointer scan result to a .ptr file and send it to me.

Also, is it really a pointer scan result with 0 offsets? (so no + in front)

Will do - I just need to dig up my disks again (un-installed the game since then).

Ok, I re-installed the game, applied patch, run it, and tried finding the pointer.
Again, only one result, and again, I get the same error message when I double-click it.
I am not sure where I was supposed to sent the file, so I post it here - it is a few bytes only anyway; I encoded these using Total Commander - I hope you can decode either one of these (they are the same).

UUencoded file (exclude the dashes!, file extension is .uue):

Edit: I see that there is an "upload file" button - I attached the file directly.
