    Single player Campaign

    Ok so I've worked with Cheat Engine before so I'm kinda familiar with the basics. Normally when I scan for something in a game the amount of results are reduced after every scan. But when I try to scan Call of Duty WWII's tank health bar I at first have some success but at some point the amount of results start increasing and not decreasing. I've looked at the tutorials and yes I was doing the same thing. Very strange. In other games it works fine.

    I've tried the beginner cosmos and then even the advanced. Same results. It's a 64bit game btw

    How can the results start increasing? That's impossible. Either it stays or it decreases.

    In some games health points are rather stored as damage and when you receive some, a number increases (visually your health decreases). So I would suggest starting it vice versa if you haven't had any success with decreasing before.

    Last but not least you may want to scan for changed / unchanged and when you have a few (hundred) results left you add them all to the table and freeze half of it. If your health still decreases when you receive damage you unfreeze and delete them. Then repeat with the other half left. Do it until your health stops decreasing. Then unfreeze half see if it decreases etc. slowly getting closer to the address holding your health value.

    Thanks 0x90 for replying 🙂

    I tried what you said as well and even searching for unchanged values and trying to freeze over a million values it doesn't work.

    The game in question is Call of Duty: WWII

    I have the premium cheathappens trainer but it doesn't help with tank health at all and I can't get past the tank stage. Since repeatedly asking for new single player features via using points never works I tried doing it via cosmos which doesn't seem to work at all.

    Any further advice would be awesome

    I'm not into this game at all but there are a few ways to achieve this.

    For 90% of all games:
    - Search for unknown value
    - Loose health
    - Search for decreased value
    - Repeat

    For 8% of all games:
    - Search for unknown value
    - Loose health
    - Search for increased value
    - Repeat

    For the rest:
    - Search for unknown
    - Loose health
    - Search for changed value
    - Repeat

    If none of them results in anything useful then it might be a super special case where health isn't a value. Some games especially those where you die instantly don't have a health value but a function that does stuff when you got hit. For these it really dependso n the game how to find them and deal with them. It's way to complex a single post can cover.
