【XD RNG】Finding range of initial seed
In pokemon XD the initial seed is decided little before the screen “WARNING-HEALTH AND SAFETY”.
So on gamecube and wii you can get a close initial seed by setting the time and starting the game at same time.
People should be able to get about the same range of initial seed if they use the same hardware and start at the same date and time but because of different preciseness of pushing the button and different lag on capture board, we need to find the range of initial seed that is adequate for us.
1. Go to The Cipher Lab, save and turn off the game
2. Open xdseed’s “初期シード” tab
3. Set the date and time of Gamecube or Wii and start the game at the time you decided
4. When the game is loaded keep hands off from the controller and select player character’s motion
5. Do it until the last 17bit of column “初期シード” and “現在のシード” become the same
If the range of initial seed(初期シード) is set to 0x00000000～0xFFFFFFFF.
If you find out adequate range of initial seed than 12~15 times should be enough.
You can calculate and see the result by clicking on the “計算” button.
6. Copy everything in column “現在のシード” and paste on “現在のシード” tab’s “シード” box
7. Find the seed you are at
You can do this by opening and closing item or pokemon menu → See player character’s motion and select → opening and closing item or pokemon menu → See player character’s motion and select … and so on until you get one result.
You can also calculate and see the result by clicking on the “計算” button.
8. Find the initial seed
Copy the result in column “シード”, open “初期シード” tab and right click on “現在のシード” than click “この列から検索(S)” and paste the result in the search box.
