IIRC, there is a second Beta of RNG Reporter 9 out. However, it seems that whenever I download it, it only opens the previous RNG Reporter 9 (Beta 1). Am I wrong in thinking Beta 2 is out? And if not, can someone point me to the proper link?
The April Fools' version is actually (mostly) fully featured: http://eggmove.com/RNGReporter/RNGReporter941.zip There are maybe three things and a few bugs I'm going to patch up before the real release.

Just remember it only works if you set your computer date to April 1st.
 
Is it possible to check your 5th Gen SID?

also, does your ID number affect what natures appear on the natures list? or is the seed the only thing that determines it? just asking cause I was looking through the natures I was getting, I stopped because I couldn't find the pattern I was getting.

cause I know in previous gens it didn't do anything but check for shiny-ness based on the SID

tid and sid are required for correct PID prediction:

It does affect PIDs, but ONLY for shiny prediction. It does not affect the natures.
 
Walking and turning advances the PID RNG by one.
So, if I just use a Repel and turn in place, I should be able to
advance the PID RNG much faster than through saving, right?

Is advancing the PID RNG by turning in place only possible in
aereas with wild Pokémon, or does turning advance the PID RNG
by one no matter where you are?

Turning is +2. Only in grass, water, etc.
 
Pardon me if this is a dumb question.

In standard abuse, is there any difference in generation of IV between stationary Pokes and wild Pokes? There are different boxes for them in the Fool's reporter, so I was curious.
 
What was the name of the program that bearfan was using in his non c gear abuse video that helped him determine his IVs?
Like jones115 said he was using PO, but it's far easier to just use an IV calc like metalkid's imo, as it'll give you the IV ranges without having to check them manually, and more exact IVs if you use some candy on them (which is fine since you're just parameter finding at that point and not saving).
 
Whenever I try to rng a spread that is a bove frame 1, I get a completely different spread, but if it is on frame 1 I hit it on the first try. If it is on frame 6, I would walk 200 steps with 5 pokemon in my party, using 2 repels to keep step count. Does it not work because I'm using an item, I walk 200 steps instead of 128, or I'm just unlucky?
Also, can you be holding down the button press before you start the game from th e main menu?
 
Thanks a lot. Didn't know this program existed.

Yeah thanks you're probably right.

The bold is the problem.
 
Well at least now I know why I haven't been able to find the natures -_-

just rewatched bearfans vid, and somehow the first time I missed where he said "take the longer "full" seed and enter it" so I was still using the short seed.

went through over 2000 natures trying to find my nature patten before I finally decided that something must be wrong and gave up...

oh, also, has anybody else noticed that the "lax" nature is colored differently like the "neautral" natures, even though it isn't one?
 
When will the ACTUAL RNG Reporter come out? Because when I open RNG Reporter, I get the stupid message,"Party's over. Go download the real thing" And then it closes. So, when will it come out? And will it come out by the afternoon?
 
Seed: 9a0a8f79
IVs: 31/30/30/31/31/31
KeyPress Combo: Start
Time: 7:01:53
Date: 4/30/2011
MAC: 00-27-09-F7-8A-3D
Frame: 6
Actual Seconds: 16

I'm starting the game at 7:01:37. Can I have "Start" already pressed and held before I press "A" to start the game? And, if that doesn't work, can I press abd hold "Start" when the screen goes white for the first time after pressing "A"?

I see. I had the misunderstanding that while on steps 129-255, it wouldn't change frames. So is it alright to use a repels while counting?
Repels are fine. 129-255 don't count. The thing is that the step counter gets saved when you save the game.


Edit:
@Megaman - Hold start and use the touchscreen to select the game.
