Randomtest what exactly are "Seeds" and how many of them are there?


#1

I’ve been running randomtest for most of the night and I’ve reached over 1000 seeds and it still doesn’t seem to want to end.

Have I done something wrong? the choice to skip to the end doesn’t want to work for me.

@Nocturnal_Stillness I think every seed is supposed to be another set of randomly selected choices and now the test is running through all possible combos, but I am not sure as I haven’t used randomtest. Somebody, correct me if I am wrong. I am guessing from what I know about randomness.

Yeah JimD just explained it, Randomtest runs 10000 seeds to see if the game works.


#4

Randomtest can go even longer. I’ve done 20000 on ZE and still found errors. Plus when you use rand, it adds even more randomness.

I figured out that iteration is how many times it runs. (Automatically set to 10000) but seeds is set to 0. What does that mean?

edit: just figured it out myself you can put any number in “seed” to start the test at that point!
