Having Fun with Pointer Scan
Let’s load up our test game, Assault Cube v188.8.131.52 and try to focus on health.
As I write this blog-post, this is the first time I’ve ever run Assault Cube. I chose it because it’s open source: free as in beer, free as in liberty. You can download it yourself (legally) and follow along for free. I’d love to have used something like COD-MW4, but then y’all would’ve had to pay $60 to follow along. I’ve got your back. Additionally, I doubt the author of Assault Cube would send a gaggle of lawyers on some kind of DMCA complaint. I hope I’m not wrong…
At this point, you should have basic scanning down pat. So… let’s start a game. I chose Single Player -> Bot Deathmatch -> Bot skill = bad -> 2 players -> ac_arctic.
Exercise: Scan for your ammo.
I couldn’t find a pause key. Minor inconvenience. You can make the bots idle which is effectively pausing the game. I alsotried setting the “Pause while scanning” option, but either it didn’t do anything or the scan happened so quickly that it simply wasn’t helpful. Probably the latter.
I was able to quickly find a non-static location for ammo.
