    Just your Timer0 trolling you. There aren't any WNPCs in Regice's room (or any of them, for that matter). Just be persistent, and you'll get the right T0 sooner or later.

    On my Dream Radar, I have two Shuckles and a Landorus on the queue for sending to my Black 2. Landorus is in a box of its own, but I know for a fact that I caught it after the shuckles...
    do I mark it as slot 1 or 3 for rnging?

    Read that guide linked in the first post again, specifically all of Important Note 3 under Dream Radar.

    Question:
    Since RNG now supports European Black/White 2 I tried to recalibrate my Nintendo DS Lite.
    Problem is, no matter how many times I try to search my Seed, RNG finds nothing.
    Well I found one Seed but the seconds werent right (I started my game at 14 seconds while RNG told me 17 seconds, I also increased the range of the timer0 hoping to find a seed)
    But to be honestly, I'm not sure if I did everything correct. I've read that RNGing is alomst the same as Black/White 1 except for the awesome timer0.

    Can someone confirm if I did a mistake?

    I'm using:
    Nintendo DS Lite
    Pokemon White 2 German

    Same for me, except I never found any results. Here is a screenshot of my settings: http://oi46.tinypic.com/119p2ch.jpg

    'Thankfully, legendaries have separate encounters using the specialized Dream Radar parts and are therefore easy to capture alone.'

    So I click Slot 1 for Landorus, right?

    So that means I can only use Sweet Scent for calibration?

    I didn't have any major Timer0 problems for my Japanese black2, but I haven't got the correct iv's a single time for my English starter.

    I have a similar problem. I also wanted to find out the DS parameters of my DS Lite on White 2. But the reporter found nothing.
    I didn't use a stationary pokemon, if this is important. It was a litwick from the celestial tower.

    It's been a long time since i checked this thread... It is possible to RNG abuse Hidden Hollows? (I guess it is, but i want to be sure) And how is it done? It's just plain simple Stationary abuse or another method is needed?

    "All Pokemon currently captured on the Dream Radar application will be sent to your Black 2 or White 2 game at the same time."

    "Additionally, the exact behavior of the RNG when receiving both legendaries and non-legendaries at the same time has not been researched."

    You have two Shuckle and a Landorus.

    In other words, you can't do it.

    No matter how often I post this, no one responds. Will someone please help?

    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? I'm using Windows Vista BTW

    Could it be that my RNG Reporter 9.95 be causing the bugs in 9.96?

    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.

    For some reason my VCount is fluctuating on my 3DS XL. Anyone else experiencing this?

    Any idea when XP users will be able to do even the most basic RNGing? Not sure why you had to switch to the new .net stuff right when the english sequels came out…

    Yes it is. Time finder has an option for Hidden Hollow (now Grotto) encounter types. They can't be shiny and are gender locked at the time they spawn. There's also a tab for abusing them when they spawn.

    In the profile manager go file -> save and save profiles.xml somewhere that your program does have access to. It shouldn't save to system32 but because of how some antiviruses work they make the program incorrectly detect what folder RNG Reporter is running in.

    I've heard reports of this from other people but never seen it myself. Could you give a list of what parameters you're finding? Does using Eon Timer to start your game help with it?

    When things settle down. RNG Reporter has so many more things that need to be fixed and added before I release a final Windows XP compatible version. The switch speeds up searches significantly.

    I'm about 90% sure that at least German White 2 is wrong maybe Black 2 as well. I'll try to get that fixed as soon as possible.
    Seconds can be off by 1 or 2 seconds from when you actually start the game so it's possible the other seed is right. Check for consistent results.
    EDIT:
    Yep German White 2 was wrong. 9.96.3 will fix it.

    Wait really? That sucks! Edit: Except, I just tried it with Landorus in slot 1 and it did work, so I don't understand what you were trying to tell me, but I just did a flawless Adamant Landorus, so whatever!

    It could be possible we just haven't researched it yet. Don't expect it to be researched too quickly. You could try figuring it out yourself if you want.

    Using Reshiram as my calibration mon, I've gotten the following:

    VCount - Timer0
    AD - 167E
    AC - 1671
    AD - 167B
    AD - 167D x5
    AC - 1673

    I'm still experimenting. Also Adjacent Seed Tool needs to be offset by a Min/Max frame of 3 to get exact adjacent seeds (if I leave it at 1/1 it's off). I suspect this is because of Memory Link, no?

    *edit* was able to hit my seed with AD - 167D, so it appears to be semi-stable. PID generation seems different than BW1, I had to select encounter type as Wild Pokemon instead of Stationary Pokemon for Reshiram to get the nature I actually hit. I'll keep editing this post with Vcount - Timer0 combos I hit. I am using EonTimer.

    Thank you for confirming that the legendaries are received before the non-legendaries. This is useful information for everyone.

    After more testing, I was definitely bouncing between a few different Timer0 and VCount combinations, mainly:

    AC - 1671
    AC - 1673
    AD - 167D
    AD - 167E

    So not only is Timer0 wildly fluctuating in BW2, but now you need to know if your VCount is wildly fluctuating. At least on a 3DS XL, I haven't tried my other DS systems yet. White 2 for the record.

    I was definitely using EonTimer which at least helped me to hit my time consistently, but it was little help for me in hitting the proper VCount and Timer0 combo. Almost makes me pine for C-gear seeds again.

    Just a question about the encounter slot tables:
    Is there a place telling us which location is which? I'm currently only seeing each place labled as "Location X" so you can understand it is rather difficult finding out which corresponds to where.

    guys! what's the earliest location where you can find your parameters in B2? By that I mean, a place without wandering NPCs ^


    Thank you ^.^
