|Summary||0000050: CE 5.4.2 cannot find the right address|
|Description||I am trying to find the addresses of the resources in Warlords Battlecry II - 1.04 beta patch. I could not find the values no matter what I tried, so I decided to give a go for TSearch 1.6b. I realized that the number of addresses is not the same for the first search.|
I have CE 5.4.2.
I start a search for unknown values (4 bytes int).
After hitting first scan, the number of addresses displayed is:
I start TSearch, too and start a scan for unknown values as well (again, 4 bytes int).
After hitting ok, the number of addresses displayed is:
I go back to the game, let it go for a few secs to update the value and I search for "changed" values.
CE shows: 136913
TS shows: 154212
I go back to the game, but immediately ALT+TAB back to windows (to filter out game ticks, music, etc changes in the memory). Then, I continue searching for "unchanged" values.
CE shows: 57610
TS shows: 58230
I do the same thing again then I continue searching for "unchanged" values.
CE shows: 45947
TS shows: 46494
I go back to the game do not un-pause it, purchase something, and I search for "changed" values.
CE shows: 43337
TS shows: 43447
I go back to the game, do not un-pause it, cancel the previous purchase and I search for "changed" values.
CE shows: 42552
TS shows: 42587
I go back to the game, let the game run for a while to increase the money and I search for "changed" values.
CE shows: 1473
TS shows: 1511
Some more searches:
By trial and error and found out the right address.
Guess what: it was NOT on the list of the addresses found by CE!
So, it seems that there is something wrong with CE.
I repeated the test once again (naturally the numbers differ), but CE still could not find the right address - maybe it did not even search the right memory addresses in the first place?
|Additional Information||In CE settings, I ticked the first two of these checkboxes:|

|fixed a scan routine in 5.4.3 that had to do with regions it scanned. Could be the cause of this particular problem as well (seeing the regions weren't split up correctly)|
