Bond697, I have a question for you regarding your tutorial:

http://pokemon.thundaga.com/starter_rng_mrfixit.doc

I'm on Step 5 now and having some trouble. The IV seed I searched by was

FC4AA3AC7B576C4B
Frame: 51

Search Parameters
Date: 5-14-2011
Min Frame: 28
Max Frame: 51

Under the Find Seeds, I picked out

Seed: D1934EBA0DD06428
Date: 5-14-2011 00:7:40
Frame 50
ID: 52263,
SID: 42237
Button: A

My DS Parameters are:
Game: White US
MAC: 001656EF81A8
VCount: 60
Timer0: C7F
GXStat: 6
VFrame: 6

Getting Trainer ID 39622. Whenever I search the list (after checking off TID box and entering in 39622), I can never find the Trainer ID that was generated for me. The "Find ID Seeds" does not bring up any info on the 39622 ID.

EDIT: Should also add, I was able to hit my IV seed just fine. Found that my starting frame is 48 (Timid).
I tried another Seed under the "Find ID Seeds." This time I went with:

Seed:196D84AEBB80B085
Date: 5-14-2011 00:33:38
Frame: 46
TID: 24638
SID: 02278
Button: None

Ended up getting a Trainer ID of 18911. I put that in the TID box and a seed did come up with a Frame of 43. So I figured, it must be 46-43 = 3 No's to Juniper. Tried that and I did not get the Trainer ID 24638. I'm not really sure what else to do here. A little help would be great (although I know you guys have been fantastic already).

Anybody? I am drowning here. I'm sure I have misunderstood one of the steps. Probably #5 in Bond's tutorial.
 
Will RNG Reporter ever have the search functionality to search across multiple months? It gets pretty annoying to not get any seeds in a month (considering how long a search can take) and have to start it all over again with a new month.
 
How do i check for encounter slots? better yet how do i use them? lol
On the main window of RNG Reporter go to Method 5 PIDRNG. Enter your full seed and ID/SID. Check off the shiny only box and make the encounter type Wild Pokemon. This should bring up all the shiny frames within that seed. Right click on the frame you're aiming for, and press Calculate Encounter Slot. Next to Sweet Scent (Grass/Cave), it will have a number from 0-11. You match that number with the encounter slot table which is on the bottom of that page. You just click on the version you have, then look for the area you're doing this at. The first pokemon is 0, the second is 1, etc.

and my question is related to this :)
 
the one that appears when you open RNG reporter? if so how i went to there and put everything you said to put. do i need to enter the ivs and change the max results or something?

Edit: nvm i got it

Edit 2: nope nevermind still need help on this lol
 
To do Shiny Abuse, do I need my SID? Is there any legal way to find my SID?

In addition, I've been breeding flawless eggs -- or at least trying. I need to set the IV frames to 8/8 min/max, correct? Also, I've been picking up the egg from the daycare man and got the same IVs twice. To be expected, correct? But this can be altered by Saving? I saved once and picked up the egg again. Same IVs, different Nature. If I save enough, will the IVs change (the inheritance, that is)?
 
Yes, to shiny abuse, you need your SID.

To find it is 2 ways: AR or Pokesav. Pokesav will require a Flashcart and ROM. However, there are so many English ROM's and no Pokesav for Gen 5...so you may have to find somebody w/an AR?

If you started the game on a DS or DS Lite, and you know the rough time at which you started it, you can use your DS parameters to find a matching starting seed (and thus deduce your SID). If you started it on a DSi or 3DS, you'll have to wait until their seeding values are found.
 
I think the trainer card only has the date. PPRNG (the Mac program) has a function specifically for this; if it's not in RNG Reporter, I could find it for you if you give me the date, rough time, and DS parameters.
 
Ok I found a problem with breeding.

I MIGHT be not hitting my seed but Im pretty sure this is not the case.

Whenever I try advancing the PID frame by saving I get the wrong spread...

any ideas on how to fix this?
 
Been looking at the first page of this thread. Is it possible to RNG abuse for a shiny wild pokemon using the C-Gear method? If not then is it possible to RNG abuse using non C-Gear without using an AR for MTIVRNG?

It's actually quite simple to do regular seed abuse not for shinies. I myself haven't figured out how to correctly do shiny abuse for normal seeds so I can't help you there.
 
Is there an easier way to find shiny egg PIDs than checking each individual seed in breeding (BW)? The nearest shiny frames in the time finder don't seem to have any correlation with the breeding frames.

I had the same problem yesterday. Try putting that new TID you got from saying 3 No's into the TID box and see what frame you get. If I'm not wrong, you're probably hitting frame 47 after 3 No's so try 2 No's instead.

what is the starting frame for eggs for Non C-Gear?
As has been said many times in this thread, the starting frame is different for every seed and is for you to find out.

In the future we may have something that predicts it for you, but don't hold your breath waiting for it.

You cannot abuse shinies with the C-Gear.

I wouldn't waste your time trying to get a shiny egg. The list on breeding (BW) doesn't correlate to the actual sequence of natures/inheritance you get from hatching eggs.
