Can't find a pointer

Post by The Mogician » Fri Aug 09, 2019 12:36 pm

So I'm working on a game called The Blackout Club.

I'm trying to get a pointer out for the stamina level for our main character. I found the stamina value in float, ran it through a pointerscan and it came up with a few pointers. To test out if the pointers are the real deal, I started the game again and checked the results of the pointer scan. However, none of the pointers work/point towards the stamina value anymore. I tried increasing the maximum amount of offsets from 5 to 8 and still got nothing.

How should I proceed from here?

Here's how I attempt to find pointers with the pointerscan.

I find the value one time in the game and then do a pointermap of that value.
Then, I restart the game and find the value again.
Then, I do a pointerscan, setting the maximum offsets to 9 and the maximum offset value to look for to a large number like 50000 or 100000. In the pointerscan, I set it to look for the same pointer from the first pointermap.

This usually returns some results that work for me.

Okay, I'll try increasing the maximum offsets to 9 but otherwise I did the exact same thing. Thanks for the advice.

You're better off with a console :P -> https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/deve ... ething-new. You won't be able to find very fast a stable pointer for the player, as it's stored in a certain way. Just learn how to map out UE4.

Any tip on where to start? :D

Edit: The game doesn't seem to have a console enabled, so there has to be someway to enable the console first, right?
