Only 1? It should have 2... I've never even heard of anyone having that problem.. It doesn't show you the second one to begin with, just rolls over into it. Just like with Pilates, SR on the first timer, continue on the second.
I looked at the timer yesterday and this morning. It only has one countdown so I'm having a hard time adjusting to how I should use it. I'm accustomed to knowing when to turn on my DS via a first countdown. So with your timer, people need to look at the computer clock to know when to start the timer, correct?
Also, how would you use this timer when you don't have a delay, like for non-c gear seeds?
Sorry for being so noobish. Derpish, whatever else. :-)
Ahh.. I was compensating that way as well. Always figured that it was about 50% me and 50% the timer depending on how far I was off. The fine update only figures in about 60% of the result for that purpose. I've actually been doing great with it. Not trying to push or anything but just an example.. I had to RNG a Lickitung for someone yesterday. End result is that I had to hit my seeds 6 times (Bred something else then had issues with an NPC). It never took me more than 3 tries during that time and I didn't have to update. I don't know how that is for you because I'm sure you're better at it than I am since I started doing it over the summer, but for me that's really good. Anyway, thanks for the opinion. If you'd like, I can put that in my next update. I'll just add it to the list.
I use the total change to keep track of delay problems when I RNG. Sometimes if I adjust by exactly the amount of the adjacent, I go way over the target next time. And if I adjust the other way, I go way over in the other direction. So I like keeping track of the total change so I can use the best average change to get near my target. I have to do this with Pikatimer for pretty much every RNG. I don't know if it's because of Pikatimer being inconsistent or if it's because my computer make Pikatimer wonky or simply because my DS is being weird, which it might be, considering what's happening on this Reshiram RNG. But that's how I've learned to compensate, by keeping track of the total change.
Are you referring to the "total change" box on pikatimer? When I was making mine, I was working with the idea that you should only have to update until you hit the seed the first time, after that you don't need it again. For me, that made the total change pointless. It can be incorporated if you think it's necessary though.
I turned the timer on to see how it ran, but I haven't tested it much. I like how I can see exactly how much adjustments were made from the original timer, like when I use Pikatimer you can see the total adjustments that you're currently at. I don't recall if your timer does something similar, but I think that's the reason I didn't continue using it. I can try using it again later. Maybe it will be easier to work with on Black.
