This scantype makes a copy of the game in memory, so it can be used later on. If you don't know the value of a variable in-game, then this scantype is usually the first step. It can take a while depending on the memory and cpu-intensity of the game and the spec of your PC.

Exact
The "exact" scan will scan the memory for the value (or string) you've entered.
Bigger than
The "Bigger than" scantype scans for all the values that are higher than the value you've entered.
Smaller than
The "Smaller than" scantype scans for all the values that are smaller than the value you've entered.


Value between...
Scan for values that are within the specified interval.


The following scantypes are available only when doing a 'next scan':


Value between... at least xx%
Scan for values that are within the specified percentage interval compared to the last, first or saved scan result.
Increased
If the value of a address has increased it will be added to the list.
Increased by...
If the value of a address has increased with the specified amount it will be added to the list.


Increased by... at least xx%
If the value of an address has increased within the specified percentage interval, it will be added to the list.
Decreased
If the value of a address has decreased it will be added to the list.
Decreased by...
If the value of a address has decreased with the specified amount it will be added to the list.


Decreased by... at least xx%
If the value of an address has decreased within the specified percentage interval, it will be added to the list.
Changed
This scantype will check if the value of an address has changed or not. If it has changed it'll be added to the list.
Unchanged
This scantype will check if the value of an address has changed or not . If it has not it'll be added to the list.
Compare to first/saved scan
This scantype isn't actually a scantype but when selected it will change the values you are comparing with with the values of a previously saved scan. This can be the first scan, but also a saved scan.


Compare to previous scan
When you're currently comparing to old values you can use this to compare against the results of the last scan (back to normal behavior).


Not
This will do one of the above scans, but only returns addresses that do NOT adhere to the requirement
