[Help] Stuck on AoBs, no progression

I really use google, read, try, google again and try even harder before I ask a (stupid) question. But now, I am stuck.
Game: http://www.kongregate.com/games/pytachok/invasion
In this game you have 10 different units to defend whatever against enemy units, typical strategy defense. The only real value I saw there are skill points, which were easy to manipulate with simple 4b*1. What I wanted to do is change the enemy health to 1.

So I dumped the .swf and opened SoThink. 
1. P-Code, search for "HP"

2. Class Name: Enemy Hero at line #237, _as3_getproperty hp

3. Source Code, _healbar.reset(allHPSolder("max"));

4. Raw Data:I searched for "allHPSolder" and found a a piece of code that looked useful.

_as3_findpropstrict source.heroEnemy:EnemyHero::allHPSolder
//2c a0 0e 
_as3_pushstring "max"
//46 f2 0a 01 
_as3_callproperty source.heroEnemy:EnemyHero::allHPSolder(param count:1)
//4f 89 0a 01 

Because there's no real value, I just changed the code in small steps and checked the result. Game crashed everytime. I tried other searches aswell, but w/o anything useful.


2 days before I tried to create a "buying adds money" AoB for http://www.kongregate.com/games/mokshal1663/fantasy-clicker. ...I'm too stupid. I searched for "money" played around with the results, searched for add (a0), subtract (a1), 93 (decrement), 91 (increment), c1 (subtract), c0 (add) and other weird stuff.

I checked the last submissions in the hack database to get a clue how an AoB looks before and after manipulation and if there's a pattern but well, no result.

What I want to ask you is the following: 
If you do your next AoB, can you please write down what you searched for, and which piece of code you changed?
The game doesn't really matter, I just need to get a better understanding of READING...if that makes any sense. Would help a lot if you could do that. 
Thanks, G.
 
E: Just to make sure you understand that I am not a lazy ass, I could fill 7 DIN A4 sites just with the codes I saved and played around with in the past 4 days. The basic tutorials (CE, AS2, AS3 and the ones on konghack....I read them.)

lots of entropy bytes to ensure minimum matches. in this case i want two matches.
the other ememy/boss _maxHP are push short instead of push byte, so youll need a different aob

eta: 
you can also get there by this series of searches
health -> allHPSolder -> maxHP -> _maxHP




I use this AoB tool to make all the AoBs I post. Try the online version if you dont feel like downloading it.

Thank you so much!

There's 1 weird issue. I searched for health, HP, allHP and so on in my first attempts. When I search for health, I get these 2 results (in source code, P-code and raw):


When I select the "BaseSoldier" script in the "Enemy" folder and search for health again, I get the error "Cannot find the string health", as in the picture above. I don't get why I get different results crying



I'll come back to this asap, won't be at home for the next 2 days.
Thanks again KolonelKadat!

in our screen shots, look directly to the right of the search box. you will see something different in mine. It is a _very_ important option that I only turn off like 1 in 100 000 searches.

also, The class is not "BaseSoldier", it is "BaseSolder". 

I know I'm being pedantic, but youve gotta be detail oriented if you wanna be good at this shit.

goro this game is poorly coded by a  russian who can't even spell in english, I told you this is a wrong target to pick to get better.  In nature if I see a hyena pick a fight with a lion I don't there to save his ass.

Ah, that's not pedantic, there's only 1 correct way. Thanks for clearing that up!

I get you there and you helped a lot already. As I wrote in my first post, the game doesn't really matter. I created this post because I was stuck on all games I tried, I didn't know what to search for anymore since I never got any real values to work with, didn't know what else I could look for. I didn't create it because of these 2 games. I just checked newest releases on kong and tested almost every game that isn't Unity based.

With these tips I can go on! Thanks to both of you :)
