Energy works fine here. I'm working on this one. So far I've added:

Max Energy
Max Rockets

Fixed:

Selected Augment (seems pointless though)
Charge Beam
Hi-Jump Boots
Spring Ball

It's slow going. It's a bit of a tedious game. That and my save file corrupted somehow. I was working through the pointer scans and the game refused to reload my save. Ugh. Hopefully I'll have something in a day or so at best.

Ok, I've spent near 5 hours on this game and I seem to have gotten myself stuck in one section. I really don't feel like starting all over again for the 3rd time. I have 2 things left to find:

Screw Attack

And the last item that runs across the top of the menu screen, near the rockets.

If you have a save game that's near complete, attach it to the thread and I can keep going with the cheat table.

I've attached what I have so far, if that helps you out.

Ok. Done.

You've got the following options

Code: Select all

Max / Energy
Max / Rockets
Max / Super Rockets
Max / Power Bomb
Selected Augment (not required, but left over from the original table)
Suit
Charge Beam
Ice Beam
Wave Beam
Spazer Beam
Plasma Beam
Morph Ball
Spider Ball
Spring Ball
Bombs
Power Grip
Screw Attack
Hi-Jump Boots
Space Jump
Speed Booster
X Position
Y Position
X & Y Position are useful if you just can't get beyond a barrier due to the requirements of the game, you can just shift yourself over a bit and bypass the barrier.

I tested this quite a bit, so all the locations should work on V1.1 of the game.

Link ?

Edit: Well this is well past 1.2.10 and now up to 1.3.2. I'll download them and if I get a chance, I'll have another look over the next few days. One thing I don't like doing is making tables for games that update every day or two. It's just not worth the effort of playing a game over and over again to find the same values, only to be changed a few days later.

don't forget to freeze the timer!

What timer ?

Table updated to 1.3.2. No timer, sorry. Too difficult to figure out without crashing the game.

Otherwise all the options are the same as the first table. The location uses a script now, to make it easier and it works better.

This doesn't work for me at all with version 1.3.2.0. From what I can tell the base pointer seems to be off. Does it make a difference that I am in Windows 10 Pro x64? (Maybe you are running 32bit OS?).

I am also trying to learn how to fix multiple pointers myself, and I have cleared step 8 in the tutorial for Cheat Engine. But when I try it with AM2R it simply just doesn't add up. Any ideas or hints? :)

It shouldn't make any difference which OS you're using, the table should work for a specific version of a game. Either way, I'm using Win10 64bit pro, and the table was made with a 64bit version of Cheat Engine, again, not that that makes any difference.

If there is a newer version of the game you'll have to point me to the files. I'm not going to go hunting for them again.

Edit: I still have the 1.3.2 game files, and the table works fine for me. Just to see if we've ended up with the same version, the CRC32 of my exe is 1B8212B9.

I'd be curious to see if you get the same.

That is the exact same version (CRC32) as I am using!

This is what happens when I load the table in CE.

Values show up, but they are not the correct ones. And if I edit them, nothing happens.
When I look at the offset you are using for the base pointer I end up with an opcode called "adc bl,al". It should at least be something with a mov or something with a ptr?! Wish I could explain better, but I am rather noobish with all this. ;)

I have also tried to reach the base pointer myself, and tried as far as a level 7 pointer (512, 1024, 2048 struct) , but still haven't found it.

Well that just weird.

Here's my game with the same table.
Image

And just to confirm, you are using the 1.3.2 table, right ?

I've tested a second save I have, and it works fine as well. I thought there might be a chance that different saves may produce different offsets in the game.

Here is a copy of the exe from my version. See if it works with yours and if it produces the same problematic results.
https://mega.nz/#!DMICCJxC!2_xIt3PxCr_x ... ucLCV4wRa4

If you could upload your current save file for me, that'd be appreciated.

Don't bother manually searching for pointers. It's not worth the effort. Use the pointer scanner, limit it to 4 levels and you should be able to easily find energy. From there the base (or first) offset is the only one that changes for the rest of the items in the game.

Sorry for the delay, but here are my .CT-file and my save.
Yes, I am using the 1.3.2 table, and when I tried with "your" .exe (same CRC32 as "mine") I still don't get it to work. All I get is ?? as values.
