OMG . . . I started reading the article now, but I just wanted to post my translation of the introduction:
Selecting For Cresselia
In emerald, the initial point (seed) is fixed at 0, but in the DS in fluctuates. Because of this, it becomes possible to aim for a specific point in time with a much shorter wait.
This sounds like some happy shit. Basically, he's saying that because the intial point can be altered, it's easier to aim for a specific frame. This sounds like some happy shit. xD
Alright, after reading some more, I have to admit it's a bit confusing to me since the article's kind of assuming the reader knows a bit about emerald (and I don't), and some of the math terminology is confusing me. I'll try to figure it out in greater detail, but some important facts I thought I should put out (and I just want to say that I am only 95% sure this is what it's saying):
-Platinum's style of writing up seeds is the same as Emeralds
-The IVs other information is the same as Emerald for the same seed (holy shit)
-The seed can be targeted more easily than emerald by adjusting the DS's clock, so no waiting hours and hours to get to certain spreads-- you can target them.
Overall, I got to say this: holy shit
I'm starving, and off to dinner now, but when I get back I'll try to read it in more detail and explain how you abuse the clock to aim for certain seeds.
"Hmmm... a name for this plan..."
