5th Gen PRNG Help / Info - Latest: RNG Reporter 9.96.5, PPRNG 1.15.0

Whenever I try to close the RNG Profiles window of RNG Reporter 9.96 Beta, I get the same message:

"Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

Access to the path 'C:\Windows\system32\profiles.xml' is denied"

When I click Continue, the window stays open, and when I click Quit, the window stays open.

The thing is, I can't even find that file or folder. I've tried redownloading the program, but nothing works. Could someone please give me some detailed help on this? Or at least a way use 9.96 Beta without having to save a Profile?

Can RNG Reporter 9.96 Beta work even if you can't close the Profiles Window? Just as a temporary fix until I figure out what's going on in the program.

Could my RNG Reporter 9.95 be causing the bugs in 9.96?
Can someone please help me here? I need answers.

One more thing; in Hidden Grottoes, is the Pokemon's Gender set when the Grotto regenerates, or is it resettable?
 
Of the results I pick one that stays Starter True because I want to try for a shiny starter (even though they kinda suck). It will report a frame as well as an initial frame, which I ignore because it is always wrong. Then I hit the displayed seed and start a new game. I enter my name and my rival's name, making sure never to hit 'no' to anything because I want to enter the game on the initial frame.
Wait wait, after typing all that out something's clicking. I only ignore the initial frame... the frame listed here is the correct one. When I do the test run, I use that to get the initial frame only... So I take the initial frame from the seed hit, but use that with the target frame form the actual seed...

If that's the case I've wasted waay to much time XD.

If the pokemon I want is there I read you can only catch one, but if I defeat it do you know if it'll respawn so I can abuse it?
Did you read what I wrote?
Did you read the guide I linked to?

After you clear out the grotto (capture or KO the Pokemon, take the item, whatever) you can then abuse the process which generates the grotto contents, including which species of Pokemon and what gender it is.

So you can have multiple of one poke appear? Let's say the dragonite was already spawned. Apparently I can't RNG the gender at this point, and I read if I catch it the Dragonite won't spawn anymore. Is that last statement false, or is there something I'm missing?

Where did you read that last part of your statement? Because it's false.
 
I've downloaded RNG reporter 9.96.1 for obvious reasons, but before I can do anything it tells me I have to set up a profile. I have 2 problems-
I don't know what to put in any of the fields on the right(VCount, GxStat,VFrame,Timer0Min,and Timer0 Max).

also, leaving these blank, if I click ok (which I assume is supposed to save the profile and add it to the list) it just closes the profile creator and leaves the profile list blank. Any ideas on what I should do?

Also, as a side question, using this tool is it possible to RNG for a Shiny stationary legendary with specific IVs and Nature?
 
I found a seed that's on frame 81 in the time finder, but when I check it to find the initial PIDRNG frame, it is suddenly on frame 79. What's going on there...?

EDIT: Apparently the frame in time finder was the determinant one. Still weird.
 
I'm trying to rng my starter, but without any first hand knowledge of the range of Timer0s that people normally see on White 2. I'm trying to do an educated guess on what it would be based on trying to get a pokemon over and over and checking its range of IVs and using the adjacent seed tool, but it doesn't seem to match anything.

I'm also wondering if the Standard Seed frame for gift pokemon advanced by 2 in B2W2 compared to BW. I noticed that difference in RNG Reporter, but I'm wondering if the skipped frame affect the starter pokemon.

Also, does anyone have a list of Timer0s that they get on White 2? I'm using a DS Lite btw, if it matters. Thanks in advance.
 
Anyone know if the Intial PID Frame is higher in B/W2?

I ID/SID abused for a shiny on frame 57 (kinda low I know) but according to the wild poke I just caught the PID frame I start is 81???? I've never seen the Intial PID Frame that that high.

I caught it in Floccessy Ranch or whatever just after finding the missing Herdier so there aren't any roaming NPC's just wanted to know if it's just this seed or should I ID abuse for a much higher shiny frame.

Edit - Crap nevermind. Just remembered all of those Mareep moving around.

Well I finally succeeded. But I had forgotten to delete my save file first, so I've finally succeeded again!

All in all, durr. The "frame" not the "initial frame" you get from going through the beginning without advancing any frames is the initial frame for the seed you want to hit. So I needed to advance form 27 to 49 and not from teh '39' listed in the initial frame box to 49.

I found this out by testing the TIDs I got, and having the seed checker show me what seed I hit and what frame. I woudl advance 10 frames, and it showed the proper seed, but the current frame was 12 behind where it should be. Thus I figured it out the hard way.

HOWEVER! Something very strange happened. As I said earlier, I hit the seed, advanced 22 frames, got my ID, but couldn't save it. When I was going for it the SECOND time, the calibration was different. After 22 advances, hitting the seed, and checking the incorrect ID, I noticed the frames had advanced much higher than they should have... The 39 in the initial frame boxed suddenly started to be correct, and not the 27 I had calibrated to.

The moral of this story is REMEMBER TO DELETE YOUR SAVE FILE BEFORE DOING TID/SID MANIPULATION!!! It throws the initial frame off! And compensating for it is pointless because you can't save anyway!

Thank you for posting! I had gone through the same thing you were going through. I also had finally hit my seed. Only problem was that I couldn't save my file since I had a save file already >_<

So now I'm trying to hit my seed to finally get my TID/SID.

Is there a possibility for a Standard Seed to occur multiple times? I mean a different date but still the same seed to hit.
No.

(Well, theoretically there is a possibility, but the chances are so small that it doesn't matter.)

But there are plenty of different seeds that will give the same nature / IV / shininess / ESV / whatever results.

Thanks, it was just my OCD kicking-in...

Another question...

I have gotten the ID/SID combo I wanted and I chose frame 62 to be the shiny frame as shown below.




However, when I put these ID/SID combo on RNG Reporter's main window, I get frame 59 as the shiny frame.





Is this a bug? Please help.
 
How possible would it be to do this for a wondercard RNG: Figure out which poke I encounter with sweet scent when I hit my seed, run, fly to pokecentre with no NPCs, talk to delivery man to figure out what frame I'm at after all this.

If I can consistently hit the same frame entering the PC, this should be easier than just guessing if I hit my seed, right?


Only on DS Phat/Lite. No Dsi/3DS support yet.
You also could have read the OP. You don't need to sift the thread lmao.
no the latest rng reporter supports dsi (not sure bout the 3ds) ..im using it now
