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

It wasn't answered before, but any word which method does the anime Wondercard eggs (Ash's Pidove, etc.). I'd like to do that one to clear it out and get another breeder.

Also, any way we can get 4th Gen profiles added to RNG Reporter too? it'd be nice to have English words instead of numbers, and it'd help for error checking on the user's part.

As for my question, is RNG of eggs possible in the English games? I know that a bug was present in the Japanese black2/white2 that replaced the seed with the one generated when creating your character... Is this still present in the game? (prays not)
As long as you're RNGing on Black 1 or White 1, you should be fine.
 
I really don't want to sound like a pain (I probably am), but I noticed that a new version of RNG Reporter that's compatible with XP will be released, for which I am very grateful ('tis a great relief). When can we expect to see this?

No one bothered looking at the event eggs because they're worthless and are no different than a regular egg once they hatch. You're better off just capturing one of the aforementioned mons and save yourself the trouble.

Ok, so added a link to chiizu's guide for Dream Radar abuse / Unova Link calibration (PPRNG only) to the first post for the time being please pay attention to the NOTE and the quotes by chiizu below it as well before using it. As for RNG Reporter, STOP asking when these things will be added, be patient slash will be working on them and when they're ready he will post.

I'm only making one release so expect it to be after I've added support for everything. Currently my main focus is 3DS/DSi support and dream radar.

Just curious: with everything already figured out from the JP versions, are those going to be a two-birds-one-stone kind of deal, or is there something about Dream Radar seeds especially that needs to be brute forced again aside from that?

Thanks again, anyway.

Is there any place earlier in White 2 where I can find my parameters?
You can use Unova Link almost immediately to find your parameters. See this post for more. It details the process while using PPRNG, though I presume RNG Reporter will also be updated to include this easier method of finding one's parameters. You can also use the IV method, as in BW.

Technically you could find your parameters as soon as you get your starter. Realistically you only need to get far enough into the game that you can determine caught Pokemon IVs with high accuracy. It's easiest to do this late-game when you can catch high level Pokemon and feed them lots of Rare Candies.

Thanks too you both! :]
 
btw is the RNG of wondercards/stationary/gifts possible in English Black2/White2? And if so, is it the same as it was in the previous games?
Yes to both questions.
I need some help with rng breeding. I have a problem hitting my target frame because of the wandering NPCs, someone knows in which pattern the NPCs advance the frame?
It's unpredictable, but they follow the same pattern for any given seed and save state, so what you need to do is receive your egg, use the nature/gender/etc. to figure out how many extra advances they did, and then adjust from there.
 
One other thing, this time about the backing up Pokemon Dream Radar before RNGing, though not technically about the RNGing itself:

I know that the guide says to back up the entire SD card for each time, but my SD card's almost full so that's bound to take up too much space. Looking through the directory, I stumbled upon this folder:

G:\Nintendo 3DS\(a bunch of numbers and letters that might not be something I should post)\(another bunch of numbers & letters)\title\00040000\000ae100

Based on the creation date (mostly the fact that it's the only folder created on the 7th, the same day I downloaded only it), I'm thinking that this is where PDR is stored. Does anyone know if I'm right? And if I am, would I be able to just backup/restore this folder, instead of the entire SD card? There isn't some hidden file in another directory that'd keep this from working, is there?

There's also a 512KB .sav file in a sub-directory under that one, so if I could get away with only copying that then that'd be even better.
 
I want to RNG hidden grottoes later in my game, do I have to do something in special? for example I'm in the part where I have to catch minccino, should I catch it or not? does it matter?
