    Well, there is always stationary and wild abuse at least.

    Alliteratively, if you have other gen 4 games, ideally HG/SS, you can RNG breed on those. If you can RNG shiny pokemon, doing IVs is pretty much the same thing, just with an NPC that will troll you every once in awhile. It is also possible on D/P/Pt. just a lot harder.

    Try using the 9.96.5
    I think the new version reduces redundancy & confusion on your part.

    yes but it doesn't show the frames of the results. does it mean that they are all at the initial rame?

    Please update to 9.96.5, the newer version removed some non-required functionality to make it less confusing. My guide is written for the latest version.

    ah, I thought the 9.96.5 was missing some things, 'cause I read somewhere that it had a bug.
    anyway, I used it and ditto appeared. thanks for the help.

    Oh wait, you're turning on the C-Gear from the continue menu (when it asks Turn on the C-Gear). That's a big no-no. That's why you aren't getting results.

    Whose guide are you looking at, by the way?

    Can anyone share the common ranges for parameters on BW using DS Phat/Lite, DSi (and DSi XL, if need be), and 3DS?

    If I have a Dream Radar frame of 10, should I advance 9 times and then collect the pokemon, or 10 times and collect the pokemon?

    EDIT: I figured it out. I need to do it 9 times.

    The front page of this thread, and Princess Emily's guide. There was a third I used for reference as well but I don't recall its name. I think she mentioned it in her guide, but idk.

    Use PoJ's guide. It is the most complete regarding RNG Reporter. Princess Emily's guide isn't complete.

    Do I do the 128 steps before C-Gear/Entralink, or after Entralink? Also, I'm pretty sure about this but just to be sure, frame advancements happen when I'm in the entralink right? (e.g. say no to the pokemon once, use chatos, and then yes to the Pokemon when I'm 26 frames away)

    If your IV frame is not 21, then you want to advance it with the 128 steps method. You do that once you enter Entralink. Best to do it not in the area where the Pokemon are, as they are treated as wandering NPCs and this can advance your PID frame.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean, but you may advance the IV frame by 26 if you refuse to take a Pokemon in the Entree Forest. This helps to get up to higher IV frames, but at the cost of increasing the PID frame every time you refuse to take a Poke (iirc by 2-3 frames).

    Hi guys, I'm attempting my first RNG in an area with NPC's. My results are very consistent, but that's my problem - my real starting frame is four above my target frame and 36 above the calculated one. Do NPC's really mess with the frames that much? Should I just re-save over and over to try new "positions?" I'm really not sure how to go about this. Thanks!

    regarding what? For hitting a seed?

    Yes, WNPCs can advance the PIDRNG that much. Are you in Nacrene City? Anyway, I assume you're mashing A as quickly as you can, so that's probably not going to do much for you. So yeah, try re-saving, and see if you can hit a frame below your target one.

    Route 14, so there aren't too many but I guess they're still screwing me up a lot. And yeah, I'm being as quick as possible with my button-pressing and menu-opening. I'll try re-saving then, hopefully this will work out! Thank you kindly!

    Can we Unova Link calibrate without the PPRNG?

    And should we start the game with butten presses? We have heard that in BW you will have the higher Timer0 more often than without button presses. Is it the same with BW2?

    If you're using a DS Phat/Lite, start the game one second before your target time, DSi's are 1-3 seconds, and 3DS is 7-8 seconds earlier.

    Afaik it's messed up on RNGR for the time being.

    And for the umpteenth time, keypresses have nothing to do with your Timer0.

    No clue, only advice I can give you is to use an actual cart, it's actually quite a bit easier.

    And I'm not saying that to spite you or anything, it's just easier to get your parameters + they're actually consistent, unlike flashcarts/emulators.

    Today I thought I'd try RNG on DSi. I never got around to it as I was fine RNGing on original DS.

    So I calibrated and to my understanding the offset is different on DSi and it WAS as the actual time was 2 seconds as the RNG reporter says.

    So I did the usual thing starting the game at -2 seconds instead of the usual -1 to hit my seed. (B/W shiny egg)

    And after I wasted 2 hours using the -2 offset time trying to hit the right seed, I decided this is not working and I tried starting the game at -1 seconds and you know what, I got it first try.

    Why is this? Am I just retarded thinking the offset time is 2? Because I searched around and found out that for 3DS the offset time is 8 and for DSi/XL the offset is either 1 or 2, and since RNG reporter said my offset time is 2 so...
