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

I meant my results were erratic in receiving the Keldeo, was just showing the time finder to see if anything was wrong there. In the program as as far as I saw everything seemed normal. But in receiving my Keldeo my results don't add up. By repetition, I assumed if there was just one thing wrong, that if I tried over and over again, the same wrong result would occur. Anyways, I'll give a try at better recognizing the Chatot sounds, and keep going at it. I got 2 with Chatter recordings, but I can't tell the difference between most pitches.

Edit: Btw,this is my first time using button presses because of how few desired seeds there was without, and I see what you mean when TimeFinder goes off a bit, thanks for the tip.

Update: Been trying more,

They're coming out much less random now at least.
 
Is this BW2? If so, there is a WNPC that advances the frame.
The actual hitting of the frame isn't the problem. The WPNC is what I thought was the problem at first as well, but when I decided to take out the synch and see which frame I was actually hitting, it turns out I WAS catching the right one, because I caught a Bashful Terrakion (with the IVs I want so I know that hitting the seed isn't the problem). And since there aren't any other Bashful natures near that one, I've come to assume RNG Reporter is giving me the wrong shiny frame, unless somebody can think of something that would offset the shiny frame besides my TID and SID, which I have confirmed several times.
 
PkmnTrainerSNOW: Is this the first RNG you'll be doing in your Black/White 2 game? If it is then it might be a calibration issue, but if it isn't and you know for sure it's calibrated then I have no idea. I just RNGd my Keldeo yesterday and you have the same setup I did, at least for the time finder. Make sure you have Black/White 2 checked and check Memory Link if you've used it.

(Also you literally have the exact same setup I did. My Timer0 is 10F4 :P)

1, 6 and 7 are on the correct seed, the quirky ones are on frame 61, the rash one is on frame 63. You know, your desired seed is 66.
We wouldn't rely on the starting frame too much, just concentrate on your hearing. The quirky ones are pretty good, you should add five more advancements to get the desired result. You are almost there, keep it up!

Wait for us, Sharpam, we will look into this.

Edit: We cannot tell what exactly went wrong. You should play a bit with the frame advancements as Exploits said.

Have you tried different amounts of PID advancements to confirm you're actually hitting the right frame? For example, instead of going for the shiny frame on 107, have you tried going for 106 to see if you get a Naive? 108 to see if you get Relaxed, etc.
 
Update: I confirmed that the frames adjacent to the shiny were what RNG Reporter said they were, but I decided to switch to a different seed and I got the shiny, so I'm not sure what was wrong with that seed.
 
Just a quick one.

I'm trying to abuse for ID/SID on a japanese black 2 cart. I am yet to hit the result that I desire. When I input the ID obtained into Pandora's Box to see what I actually hit, the results are... off. Like it will often give me a result that is correct in time, date, and frame advances, but incorrect in button inputs, which I did not do incorrectly. Another time my ID appeared with correct time, frame advances and button inputs, but only occured 10 months after it was supposed to. Is there a known issue with the 'Find Seed Hit' function?

Also, if I find my ID seed, it asks me to perform 8 frame advances (Initial: 28, Target: 36), but if I search using the 'Find Seed Hit' function, it tells me not to advance at all (Initial: 36, Target: 36).

I should also mention that I've done this before, successfully, with my copy of White 2. So I suppose I have a bit of experience. I don't remember it being this difficult or random, though.
 
Short: Yes.


By the way, we have looked a bit into Sharpam's issue. We have manually calculated the shininess, as the result the Pokemon is supposed to be shiny, in theory:

TID: A25B 1010001001011011
SID: 6937 0110100100110111
PID: 1452 0001010001010010
PID: DF3A 1101111100111010

0000000000000100 <= 0000000000001000 = shiny

There was nothing wrong with that seed, but the given PID was incorrect, assuming the TID/SID are correct.



Edit: We are tempted to bumb but that would be rude. We are trying to calibrate a B2 game with the same DS lite we have calibrate a W2 edition with. Can we use the same Timer0 results? VCount is constant, too.
 
I was about to start a new game on my Black cartridge, and I was wondering... Can the starters be RNGed like other "gift" Pokemon? If yes, how can the PIDRNG be advanced if there's no Chatot?
 
I'm confused about rng breeding. The frame they mentioned is the chatter pitch frame and not the walking 128 steps one, right? Are there the random NPC walking thingy in the route?

The PIDRNG can be advanced by saving (one save=one advancement)
Yes starters can be RNGed like all other gift pokemon, I assume. I have not done it before though.
 
RNG Reporter is great, and is far more rewarding than PokéGenning, but could something allowing to "save" a research to the disk, and resume it later, could be implemented?

Like, saving the last seed or second/keypress combination tested, and being able to start another research from them later? It could be very useful for those who can't have their computer run 24/24, or when you're halfway through your research and need to reboot for whatever reason.

Anyway, thanks for all the work you put into RNG Reporter. Without you, the only way to get perfect Pokémon without spending days breeding would be to PokéGen them.
 
You can Right-click and "Output Results to TXT". The format is horrible, though and you need to clean up manually a bit, but that is a start.

Edit: Sorry, we couldn't find that kind of function. Is is a bit annoying when you are in the middle of some calibations when the RNG Reporter decides to go down.
 
I knew that one, Onicon, but I meant, being able to restart the search where it left off, like, stopping while it's searching, let's say, 4 april 2004, 4 hours, 4 minutes, 4 seconds, "Up" keypress, and being able to resume the search at that point after the computer cooled down or updated.

Thanks anyway, some people may not be aware of this tip.
 
I'm trying to RNG a flawless Terrakion and I can't seem to hit both my IV and PID frames. I find this weird as just yesterday I successfully RNGed the event Keldeo. I've been trying ever since yesterday to no avail, and it seems worse than the Timer0 trolling my life. I know I'm starting the game at the right time and I do all my Chatot pitches, but nothing works. Here are my settings:
VCount: AD
Timer0: 167E
GxStat: 6
VFrame: 8
Seed: DA15A0D263EAE21C

And the Terrakion frames:
IV frame: 1
PID frame: 158
Date/Time: 11/27/12 07:00:49 (Start game 8 seconds earlier)
Keypresses: Right-Down-Y
Help please. Thanks.
 
You can't control your Timer0...
If you can, RNG on a original DS, or a DS Lite, where it's only a second earlier.

Also, on said DS/DS Lite, hold Down as it's powered up, so you won't risk launching Pictochat.

On which game are you RNGing? If it's Black2/White2, think about the WNPCs.

White 2. But there are no WNPCs, just this one backpacker dude, but he's not moving. I suppose I can do that as I have a NDS Lite.

That Backpacker is the wandering NPC. He turns in place, which still counts as frame advancements.

By the way, whatever DS or 3DS model you use won't matter in terms of Timer0; BW2 have expansive ranges for Timer0. DS/DS Lite are just easier to manage due to the (usually) 1 second offset.
 
We have calibrated a W2 cart with our DS lite. Is it possible to use the results for any other BW2 cart on the same system (B2 in particular) or do we have to do it again?

Each cart is different, so yes.

Well the thing is I usually do the advancements so fast he doesn't move, but what you're saying is that I need to adjust my advancements accordingly to this guy is I can get my wanted frame?
