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

I've tested many times now and I've found my parameters for White. I don't understand why my Timer0 keeps changing. I ignore when I get more than 1 result, but I'm sure for many people their Timer0 changes slightly with held buttons. I usually get 12BB, with held buttons I got 12BC, now I tested again without holding any buttons as I did before and got 12BC. This confuses me, so from now on I guess I should just use held buttons, right?

My Vcount is consistent but as usual the actual seed fluctuates between 29-31 (I always set my seconds to 30, hit "a" at 28 because I'm on a DSi), which is why syncing is hard, it's the most tedious part of the whole RNG process for me.
 
Keypresses have nothing to do with the Timer0, the hints at the first page are slightly outdated. The only thing you can do is using an external timer with milisecond display and praying. Use the Timer0 you get more often.

With "seed" you mean "actual seconds"? In that case you have to make sure the difference between it and your pressing seconds are constant. Using an external timer with milisecond display like EonTimer helps in that regard, especially when you are using DSi onwards.
 
I got a result in the find seed hit box today. Too bad it's higher than the frame I'm meant to subtract it from. At least I'm doing something right...

Btw is the Latios in Black 2 a stationary or roamer?

I figured since I'm gonna RNG my TID SID for a shiny Snivy I might as well do it so that I can use the same seed for Latios.

Lati@s in BW2 are stationary. Just save a step before you encounter them. Also, make sure you battle the little boy in the doubles grass so he doesn't move around before you go to RNG it.
 
Keypresses don't have any effect on the Timer0.

Alright, I did like 5 more trials and I do get 12BB even with held buttons. Does it moving up to 12BC mean I'm not syncing times properly?

I don't get how Eontimer knows I'm using a DSi because it works just fine with it's default calibration "-95" setting (for 30 target seconds, it's 28:61), maybe it's made for DSi's delay and those of you with DS/3dS have to change it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYSHAga0Q3Q in his tutorial his Timer0 fluctuated up 1 just like the first post warns. Somehow he still got his pokemon using the higher Timer0.
 
The EonTimer doesn't know you are using a DSi, you do. When you calibrate you will see a column named "actual seconds". Compare it with the EonTimer setting and remember the difference.

For example, when my sister did that she intended to press A to enter the game at 25 (EonTimer setting). The actual seconds from the calibrations were 28.
Now, whenever she wants to hit a seed she set the EonTimer 3 seconds before the target - 22 when shen wants to boot at 25.
That's the easy solution because we don't want to mess with EonTimer.

Two Timer0 are nothing out of ordinary for BW. Just stick on the one you think is more common and keep your timing straight.
 
I'm really not sure Why I'm not hitting my seed, It tells me I am hitting my time, and the Timer0 seems to not have changed. Perhaps someone can find something I missed in these? The first seed of the first screenshot is the one I was trying to use. It tells me, when using the DS PARAMETERS and plugging in ivs, that I hit my time, but the ivs are not the same as the seed.

If the IVs don't match then your not hitting your seed. Try callibrating somewhere like the last cave before the elite 4 where there's no wondering NPCs. Also for a DS lite you should have a 1 sec offset.

But using the time I got from time finder, it tells me that I hit it. However, I get different IVs than expected for the time. Therefore one of the two is incorrect . I'm thinking somehow thr time finder is off.
 
Yes. The 2nd screenshot shows I am hitting everything that is required for that seed, and I hit my actual seconds.. It seems to have 2 seeds for one time and button presses.
 
No, that is not possible. A more mundane explaination is that your R button has bad contacts, like Cereza said. We recommend you to skip the shoulder buttons because they are nothing but trouble.
