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

i did calibration 2 times,using the same time and got C7F twice should i do it more like about 10 times or so,also when you do a key press combo do you hold down that key untill you see the nintendo logo and then let go right.

Yeah. Really you can hold it as long as you want. Fiddle around with it.

Also, it can't hurt to do calibration like 2 or 3 more times, but it sounds like you've got some freak (possibly user based) error.
 
A common mistake that people seem to be making is that because I set my DS clock 2 minutes before my target, others assume that they should too (why is beyond me). You only set the DS clock before your target only as far as EonTimer/ZomgTimer tells you. If that's not the problem, there's some sort of user error going on. Make sure you're sweet scenting in an NPC free zone.
Actually, my frame is higher than 3. (It's 9) I've been advancing the frame by walking 6 steps in tall grass. Does that do something weird?

How do you know it's always 6 steps? Unless you happen to always be ambushed by a wild pokemon at 6 steps, in which case, wow.

Besides, walking in grass doesn't advance the IVRNG. However, I'll bet there's an NPC advancing the IVRNG. This is why you find a quiet zone and use a sweet scenter. Follow the instructions please.
 
I thought that when you're in tall grass it advances the frame by one...

EDIT: I'm not in an area where there's moving NPCs. (Or at least there are no moving NPCs I see...)

i should calibrate 2 or 3 more times using the same time of 10:48:25 right and see of the timer0 changes or not right
 
I think I heard someone say they were able to RNG standard seeds on their DSi. I'd like to know if anyone can verify that for me. Before anyone asks, I'm asking because I'm a lot more comfortable abusing on my DSi. It's actually a lot easier for me.

If I am not getting the IVs I want (they're supposed to be on Frame 1) for Standard Abuse, how can I rectify the problem? Like, I'm supposed to have a 31/31/31/x/31/31 on Frame 1, April 24 at 00:33:55 and holding Y. However, whenever I try the spread I never get the IVs I want. Any ideas?

If you hit the same date\time\timer0 on a DSi over and over, you still will get the same seed, but the problem is nobody can predict seeds on a DSi. Not even the Japanese have figured this out.

Try redoing your parameter search with the IVs you keep getting instead, it'll give you an idea of what's happening. Just remember to select Y in the Held Button combo box.

I've tried doing this, and putting the seeds I can get from button combinations to see if there are any good spreads. There are a lot, but nearly all of them are on high frames and are not worth it. You can probably use it for breeding if you want though.
 
Timer0 is being an asshole.
I know it's not an important question, but does anyone know
a) why we can't predict it 100% (I get either C7B or C7C)
b) what the math-problem behind that is? Is the value Timer0 assumes
dependant on your seed and not vice-versa? I'm comfused as to why we
can find all other parameters precisely, but not this one.

This is a hardware parameter, not a software one. It has nothing to do with what seed you hit. We can't predict it 100% because it's based on performance variables.

i've a problem to find my DS parameters.
i've advance the VCount and Timer0 range 7 times,but i haven't find my ds parameters yet.
should i advance the GxStat and VFrame range,too?
The default range should eventually find something for you as long as you're using a DS lite/brick and a retail cart.

The default range isn't picking anything up for me either but I've just started using a rom for the purpose of cloning.

Does this mean I need to start using my cart again or is there an adjustment I need to make when configuring for a rom?

I assume you mean a flash cart? If that's the case, then the values vary a lot from cart to cart. The timer0 also varies a ton on most flash carts.
 
I'm getting wacky results when I'm re-calibrating

1st Test:
Actual Seconds: 1
VCount: 60
GxStat: 6
VFrame: 6
Timer 0: C7F

2nd Test:
Actual Seconds: 6
VCount: 60
GxStat: 6
VFrame: 6
Timer 0: C7F

3rd Test:
Actual Seconds: 16
VCount: 60
GxStat: 6
VFrame: 6
Timer 0: C7E

4th Test:
Actual Seconds: 16
VCount: 60
GxStat: 6
VFrame: 6
Timer 0: C7F

5th Test:
Actual Seconds: 31
VCount: 60
GxStat: 6
VFrame: 6
Timer 0: C7E

Should I use any of these?
 
Yeh I meant a flash cart. When you say it varies a lot, do you mean between different carts? I'd like to hope each individual cart will remain a constant =/

I just find it easier to do my RNG abuse where I can do my cloning, saves a lot of double handling when I want to trade.

-snip-

Well.. they're all identical except for the timer 0. That has a tendency to fluxuate a little. I'd use C7F.


Edit:
@Newts
I mean both. Each cart is a bit different and only certain ones are consistent. I'm not sure how often the others are inconsistent but when they are it's by a lot.
 
I downloaded the updated RNG Reporter 9 and I'm still getting "Party's over. Go download the real thing"

I have framework 2.0 and 4.0 installed in case. It's still giving me the "Party's over. Go download the real thing" message even after re-downloading RNG Reporter 9.
