    I am trying to RNG abuse a spread with a very high delay (since frame advancement is sketchy in HGSS). How can I check my work to see how close I landed? It appears that RNG Reporter SeedFinder doesn't register high delays. This is the last step I need to catch my perfect Ho-oh... halp!

    I'm on vacation now and working on a complete list for the radio.
    And some other things I found out about the HG/SS RNG.
    I hope that this will then solve all inconsistent result issues.
    But you could try tapping the right bottom of the radio 5 times, as in most cases tapping the right bottom advances the frame +1

    I'm RNG'ing Raikou right now. The bottom right button if the station plays the goldenrod theme has been very consistent. Its always +1. Does anyone know how much the Buena's password station advances it? Edit: Ran a test and found my spread even though there were too many seed combinations. It had no effect for me but the delay was unusually low (scrolled down the menu, returned to title, then started), so not sure if I can trust this test.

    I don't actually now which one is Buena's but the above posted combination works very often, in many cases the left bottom button also gaves constant +3 although I can't guarantee that as it depends on the time.

    But this pic above is your best bet.

    I know I posted this 5 minutes ago, but a fast paced thread + being the last post on a page = never getting a reply. Any advice is appreciated here guys. Ty.

    Is there any way to change between an odd or even delay without year changing or a gba game? I heard scrolling to the bottom menu can do it, but is this true?

    I'm a little confused about that. Do you scroll down, back up and then start the game, or do you scroll down, press b, enter the menu again and then start?

    How high is the delay? The seed finder searches as high as 3,600 for the delay. So unless you're higher than that, it should be able to find it. If it is higher, you could use Wichu's Program. The only problem with that is that it takes roughly 5 minutes for one search, and you'll need to know the exact IVs.

    Thanks for your response. My target delay is 2794. It is interesting you say seed finder goes that far... let me tell you what I have been doing then.

    I get a good Seed to Time, input my desired seconds/delay into PikaTimer, set my ds to date/time and follow PikaTimer appropriately. I immediately catch Ho-oh and using "Find Initial Seed by Stats" I put in the matching date/time, select HGSS delay, and input the stats. Nothing ever comes up. Using the same method with much lower delays has always worked for me. The only thing different is my delays. Unless this can be fixed, I think I am willing to wait 5 minutes every check as I am fine at landing on proper delays, I just need to test my results a few times to adjust the pikatimer.

    Can you think of anything I am doing wrong or what the problem might be?

    Hey.... I had a question about emloop

    when changing my delay to a Higher one (mine was from 682 to 874).... it alters the seconds (from 11 to 14).... now when I SR that second time.... am I trying to get it close to my original? or the 2nd one? (it seems closer to the original) also... if I'm NOT close... do I edit the 682? or the 874?

    @ Drake: It should find those delays. The HG abuse I did yesterday had a delay of 2759, and it found every spread for me. Are you sure that you've got it to a high enough level to where it can figure out the IVs for the seed? At level 45 it usually finds a few hundred seeds that could be possible.

    Hmm... I could throw a few rare candies at it, but usually it would say "too many possible seeds found, try a higher level" not the "cannot find anything" message.

    Edit: I am getting the latter message, not the former. Just to be clear.

    Are you adjusting the level as well as the stats. Also, if you're using rare candies on a legendary. If you use enough, metalkid's IV Calculator could probably get you the exact IVs or close enough to help you find your seed.

    is this on HG/SS? did you check the box at the bottom that says (HG/SS delay)?... it changes the minimum search from 600 to 400

    Are you sure the times are correct?

    @gamer - Yeah, not doing any basic goofs there, but I may just try calculating the IVs myself and doing the "Initial Seed by IV" instead of "Initial Seed by Stats"

    @pc777 - Yes, I did all that

    @COKTAL - Mostly yes, but I am gonna try it a few more times. I am inputting the Target Time correctly.

    Will do a few attempts and post my progress... thanks for the responses all. <3

    Make sure you are entering the game world at the right time. With that high a delay it's nearly impossible to get in the same time you set it at.

    Let say your target time is 6:25:00 or something like that. If you're aiming for that time, you need to enter the game at that exact same time. So if the delay takes 45 seconds, you'll need to set the clock at 6:24 and soft reset after 15 seconds.
