    Hi,

    I had write a small utility to generate out possible combinations of the Voltorb Flip Game in Pokemon HG/SS.

    There are 5 x 5 boxes which represents the flip cards in the game. Then 2 boxes at the right side and also 2 boxes below which is the total coin / voltorb of the row.
    To start using, enter total coins / voltorb for each rows and columns and click Run button.
    After that, whenever you had flip a card in game, click on it on this utility and update the coin to filter out the possibilities.

    However, this is not 100% correct, its only shows you possible outcome of the game.

    Program compiled under Visual Studio 2008 (Might required .NET 3.5).
    Below is the download link.
    Voltorb Flip Calculator


    * Sorry for my bad grammar.

    Thanks.

    *Updated v1.0.5

    Would you mind uploading the source code somewhere? I'd like to mess with it. If not, I understand.

    Oh wow, that really helps. The voltorb card flip game was getting on my nerves because I suck ass at it.

    Oddly enough I was playing it in bed last night (I can never pass level 5) thinking about making a tool if nobody else did.
    Thanks for saving me the work!

    Personally I think this is better. It allows you to fill in the 'zero voltorb' lines to be more accurate, and it allows you to add the ones you flipped as you go.

    The downloadable one does as well, you click a square and then change the value in the upper-right.

    Also tabbing works correctly on the bottom row in the downloadable one. [​IMG]
    On the online one, it goes from one number to the next row's number, instead of number>voltorb amount.

    ALSO also, the downloadable one shows you the percentage chance of each square having a voltorb, so you can find the safest one to flip to continue and recalculate.

    I find that feature invaluable, so I'll be using both of these in tandem.



    Fucking quote number limit, seriously.

    The App is pretty awesome although it takes a long time to calculate at higher levels

    Im a bit confused about the http://voltorbflip.lanowen.com/voltorb.php are we supposed to flip the ? tiles or the . tiles I assume its the ? but It keeps making me flip voltorbs

    After playing with them some more I have to change my vote to the online one partially, because the downloadable one DOES just take too long on higher levels. [​IMG]

    Monkey: You're supposed to flip the ? tiles, those are the ones that have the lowest chance of being a voltorb. You're just unlucky.



    You know, for being a replacement to gambling, this game is based on a lot of chance/luck. XD

    Cheers I thought it might of just been my bad luck

    haha yes this is still gambling the only difference is you dont have to put in any money to play so you can never really "lose" money

    Also with the Voltorb Flip Calculator app you should be able to edit the squares before you process the data, I imagine this would help at higher levels
