Anno 1800 Pointers

Post by mrhx » Thu May 02, 2019 11:34 am

Hey there,

i am not sure if this is the right place for my question, but i'll give it a try.
I want to read the population of an active Anno 1800 game in an external tool. To do this i tried to find the pointers to the value of the population in Anno with CheatEngine.

I was successful in finding the dynamic addresses. But when scanning for the pointers after a restart of the game, i always result in 0 pointers.

I would appreciate, if there is someone who could help me finding those pointers. I can provide the game for example via screenshare.
I am also thankful for any other help.

Thanks!

You'll need to increase the structure size and max level when scanning. That or look into code injection and just hook the address some where.

Thanks for your tip. By increasing the scan level i found most of the pointers i searched for. Now there are just some pointers left which i can only find in THREADSTACK0 instead of the game .exe..I will keep on searching

There's nothing wrong with threadstack0

Code: Select all

int rungame()
{
  CMyGame *game=new CMyGame()
  game->run();  
}
will never have anything else besides a threadstack variable
