I didn't place well at all. I lost 4 matches out of 8. But realistically, from a big picture perspective, I'm not too worried about it. 3 of the losses were hax, and none of my wins involved hax. So all in all I performed as well as could be expected, considering the hand I was dealt.
Umm I wasn't actually RNGing my ID/SID for that shiny roamer...
I just searched for shiny frames that's closer to something like 450-550 or something...
For Thundurus, which I did, I think the min PID frame it ends up is somewhere in 450+, if there's no weather after you got out of the house, and you mash the A button.
For Tornadus, it's somewhat higher, 550+ maybe
I don't know exactly how long it took, but I'd say maybe 5 hours, give or take. I think just using Oshawott/Dewott/Samurott makes things pretty easy.
It seems like it takes a while, maybe, but I really think it's the most reliable way to do things. You'd have to play through once to get to that point, anyway, and you might end up spending 5 hours trying to RNG the roamer and never get anywhere, so I think it's better to just reset the game and RNG the IDs once you know you'll get what you want.
Oooooooh. Well. Honestly, you could probably just ask around. Iirc it's around the 100ish range. I picked as low as possible, which was like 65iirc. If you aim high, like 100+ or more, you might have to save a little more, but you WILL be able to hit it.
I don't use Boot Camp, but as far as I know it is exactly the same as if you were running on a normal Windows machine. So if RNG Reporter runs under Windows 8 elsewhere, I would think it would work fine, but don't quote me on that.
Nah. I RNG'd one ID for easy shiny spreads, but didn't realize I had picked a frame too low for the roamer until I got there. So I just RNG'd it for IVs/Nature. Didn't feel like going back and doing it again just for a shiny one.
