    I am using Cresselia on Marvelous Bridge for calibration. I am also aiming for a flawless one. The only problem is that no seeds are generated when I hit search.
    Version: Black 2

    Just to be sure, when attempting to RNG for the Larvesta egg given to you in White 1, do I set my min/max frame to 1/1, while checking the 'larvesta egg' encounter type?
    I read the starting IV frame is 2, so its somewhat puzzling me :x

    Way too small.

    And to be clear, Cereza meant the time when you select the game from the 3DS menu, not when you select Continue in-game.

    Are there any areas without wandering NPCs in White 2 where you can catch a Petilil?

    So, using my screenshot as an example, if I'm in an area with no WNPCs and I want my pokémon to be Timid, I just need to enter the battle since my starting frame is 59, whereas if I wanted my pokémon to be bashful I'd have to advance the PIDRNG by 1 by listening to one Chatot cry? I'm just a little confused as to what numbers represent what.

    Do you need your SID to calibrate over Unova link? I ask because I don't have wi-fi/pokecheck to check my SID. Would I be able to just calibrate off of my White 2 now, then ID abuse so I know my SID/ID?

    I'm guiding a friend through the RNG process and she says when she clicks generate in the time finder window she gets this:

    "I press generate and a little progress bar appears, but it disapears almost instantly and I get nothing.'

    She has Winows 7 and HAS installed the Frameworks listed in the first post of this thread. any ideas on what could be happening?

    Maybe the ranges she's looking on are too small? Tell her to increase the number of months and advancements needed?

    Well according to her she put in exactly what I asked her to put it, I did as well and got results, but she didn't. I thought it was the Frameworks but she installed it and Restarted her computer and continues to have the issue.

    I have the same problem. I have to go in and re-edit the parameters in the Time Finder window every time to get it to actually search.

    I remember having this problem when I started using the latest RNG Reporter's Parameter Finder after months of not doing any RNG. I'm trying to remember what it was that I had to change to stop the strange disappearing progress bar. The soft reset box may be it. Does she have hers clicked? Tell her to unclick it and do all of her work from a complete restart of her DS system after she sets her clock. See if that makes a difference.

    I fixed this issue last page. Go to your parameters, check all the keypress boxes. Run a search. Uncheck keypresses. You should be able to search normally after that.

    Is it possible to id abuse in BW2 without knowing your initial SID?

    when searching for shiny seeds, does the shiny frame sometimes not contain theIVs that the search read it would?

    Of course, I did it on B2. All you need is your parameters.

    So in Time Finder, do I use 1/1 or 3/3 for getting standing legendaries? Thanks.

    1/1. The frame is only 3 for the Adjacent Seed tool.

    How did you look for your seed? You need to use the standard method for ivs and click on "nearby shiny frames" if you use the pid method, then you will not get the ivs you want as this method does not search for ivs

    I am using the latest version of RNG Reporter (9.96.5 BETA). I am trying to find my DS parameters but can't get any results. The time and date of hitting the A button on main screen is November 26th 2012 at 19:40:25. My MAC address is CC9E00FFDCCD. DS type is 3DS. I'm playing Black 2 (English). I calculated the IV range of a boldore I caught in the last cave of victory road using sweet scent.
    Here it is:
    18-19/25/5-7/3-4/3-5/16-17

    I did not check the soft reset button.
    What could I be doing wrong? I would really appreciate your help.

    Here's my guesses as to what might have happened:
    You took a step/did something to advance the IVRNG.
    You were holding some buttons down while starting your game.
    Your start time is incorrect.
    Your calculated the IVs incorrectly.

    Less likely but still might throw this out:
    Your MAC Address is wrong
    You aren't playing on an English version of Black 2 on a 3DS

    To give you an idea what you should be looking for on English Black 2 on a 3DS you should see results of
    actual seconds = seconds + 8, VCount = ad, Timer0 = 168a, GxStat = 6, VFrame = 8
