    It's possible, yes. Remember, 1234 is the same thing as 01234. So you could just out a 0 in front to get it five digits. But it makes no difference.

    they want a specific number of seconds since you have to factor in that time on emerald to hit a specific frame, and this is something they should be able to do themselves and it isn't documented here.

    Thanks. Sorry, i have another question. When do i need to track the locations of the roamers? In RNGReporter it asks for Roaming Pokemon Locations. I know it's the routes (lol) but im not sure which locations i have to write down. Do i write them down before saving?

    Just before you save, yes, make a note of the routes then.

    Thanks. I have ANOTHER question (sorry). In seed verifier, what is seed advance for? It doesnt give me a starting frame.. is that because i have all 3 roamers out?

    I'm trying to breed a Growlithe with flawless ivs in Soul Silver. I have parents, nature and ability sorted, and saved in fron of the day care man. When I hit my seed, if I take the egg straight away and hatch it, I get the frame 1 ivs. If I call Elm before talking to the day care man I get frame 8. Does anyone know why this is? I'm aiming for frame 3. Should I try waiting before talking to him and hope the npc gets the frame to for me?

    Hm, I haven't really tried the standalone seed verifier so I'm not entirely sure; but the roamers will cause some frame advancements when you start the game. RNGReporter and the verifier should say how many frames they will advance it.

    @ Arcashine:
    Sounds like the NPC is managing to move and mess things up in before you open the Pok├ęgear and after you close it. If you're quick, you can manage to do the frame advancements before he moves at all, with some luck. Or you could try waiting a tiny bit before picking the egg up and let him move and get the frame for you.

    The frames they will advance should be shown in the same place it says their locations will be. Make sure you enter their previous locations, though.

    When we are capturing shinies; this is what we do, right? (I want to get it strait) -

    1. Find Seed, and determine times.
    2. Sync with external clock at sync time.
    3. RESTART THE GAME AND PLAY UNTIL RESET TIME COMES UP THEN SOFT RESET AND MASH 'A' TO GET CORRECT DELAY.

    Right?

    Im asking because I seriously dont know what Im doing ...

    I did. I have another question, really sorry... BUT, how do i find my initial seed if i got it wrong? Seed verifier wont show me, and RNG reporter wont either. I triple checked to make sure i entered everything correctly, as well as the HG/SS Delay box.

    You can use the initial seed finder and enter the correct information, because as long as you do this it will work. Assuming it was not frame > 1000 or a delay more than 3600. If you met the following conditions and it didnt work, then you entered something incorrectly. Period.

    You could also go back a page or two and find rng reporter 8, beta 3 (has all the functionality of the standalone seed verifier + more) which has adjacent searching via elm flips/roamers, but that might be a little complicated.
