More information is needed. You could not have possibly been more vague.

Sorry for less information

Her down is the situation:
1- I found the address.
2- I get the 1st level pointer.
3- I made "find what access this pointer then the window opened.
4- I return to the game and purchase some ships to change the money value.
5- Back to CE getting the address and the offset.
6- Search for the hex address, I got 0 results.

How many results do you get in the debug window when searching for what accesses that pointer? How many of them are memcpy?

Only one (copy memory)
one (subtract)
one (compare to operands)

And you're using the suggested address under the copy memory result? You can try the other two to see if they give results.

If you get no results from that address, then it must be calculating that address somehow strange. I don't know what to tell you.
