Can't understand it still =/.

The spread sheet i am using is this 1:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LN872RO6

I saw what somebody wrote on the topic i got the spreadsheet from but only understood part of it, here is what was written.

Quote
cells in pink are the cells you need to fill in yourself. Have one character at full HP cast cure on themself 3 times in a row, making sure only that character is active in the party. Enter those 3 cure values where it says cure 1, etc. other pink cells that must be filled in are that characters level and mag power, and whether or not the have serenity licensed. the spreadsheet will automatically tell you where those 3 cure values are found consecutively. Find that spot on the spreadsheet, then begin going down, looking at the numbers in the far left column. These are rather long numbers, but you only need to pay attention to the final two digits of these numbers. find a spot where the final two digits end above 80, followed immediately by a number where the final two digits end in 95 or above. you need to get to the line immediately before these two numbers. You can enter that line in target row column, and the spread sheet will tell you how far away you are. If for example you are 56 lines away, hit yourself UNARMED for 0 damage 5 times and cast cure 6 times. hitting yourself advances rng 10 lines, cure advances it one. When you are at the line before those 2 numbers, open the chest for your item.

The bit in bold is what i understand, can anyone simplify this much more, thanks.

Also in the values of that spreadsheet, this is what i entered:

Can you say what exactly it is you don't understand?

I think i have sussed it, i wasn't too show about what to do after entering the last cure but now i realize what to do and why it wasn't working, I THINK.


225503843   967
3285925040   943
148254087   964

The left is my RNG and the Right is what my cure just hit so now the following pattern will be this:

1544605017   932
1732575028   937
1235522268   932
742286006   927
3773939092   967
2633940226   1029
3309725665   1000
1112836606   973
535914326   959
2302599798   946
601148348   969

I'll now highlight what i think i have to do.
1st highlight = Start counting from there
2nd highlight = The RNG i need 1st.
3rd highlight = The RNG i need 2nd.
1st underline = The RNG i need to get to.

So hope you still follow me, starting from the 1st highlight, the 1st underline is say 20 lines away exactly, all i need to do is hit myself 2 times for the RNG to go +20 then i should be on the 1st highlight, this is now when i open the chest to get the item?

To be honest, I've no idea what you've said.

Change level and Magick Power in the Excel file to match your character's level and Magick Power. Then cast Cure three times and find those values inside the spreadsheet. When you've done that, find two consecutive numbers with the last two digits both above 90. Cast Cure until you're exactly before those to numbers, then open the chest with the Diamond Armlet.

I thought 1 of them had to be above 80 and 1 had to be above 95 and also do they have to be together, and when do i open the chest, before the 80 or after the 95.

If you're playing IZJS, it has to be 80/95. Open the chest before the 80+.

Hmm, I followed your instructions but it doesn't seem to be working. I started at position 510. So I moved to the line 523 and went to the location of the chest : nothing. What did I do wrong ? :(

510 1254523757   1179   57
511 2598864288   1197   88
512 2487065396   1261   96
513 3980557252   1176   52
514 3927687062   1212   62
515 1023120037   1197   37
516 3353421697   1291   97
517 1424497133   1253   33
518 381918519           1186   19
519 2639543960   1299   60
520 2978297751   1176   51
521 2761685757   1179   57
522 1548391283   1195   83
523 1947546654   1266   54
524 3865450906   1267   6

edit : OH OK, it was the 4th position. It worked, thanks ! :)

This method is amazingly efficient :D I got 3 Zodiac spears in 40 minutes \o/
Do you guys know the required number to spawn the ribbon chest in Cerobi ? Since this zone is weather influcend, the method differs from Henne Mine to calculate the position required, does it ? I guess once the chest has popped, I just have to move on line 960 again to get the two lasts digits over 90 ?

I personally don't think its worth the effort to force spawn the ribbon chest - its there 70% of the time for me. The zones are quick, and its quick to reset also. I think there was a thread where people had posted how to spawn specific chests, but I don't quite remember where

Indeed, if the rate is 70%, I will try it the usual way. :)

I just checked it - its actually a 50% chance, but it seems like its there fairly often. You should check out ff12maps.com, it has all the chests and their gil rate, spawn rate etc. itll make finding the proper rng numbers to use a lot easier

Hey guys, sorry to be a pain, I'm replaying ffxii now and I was intending to use these spreadsheets, but as you're probably aware, megaupload isn't available anymore; does anyone have a copy hosted elsewhere?
