I've done a couple of different tests of DB's randomness, and found it to be pretty good. The two main tests were a coin flipping bot and an ouija board bot.
The coin flipper basically tested if the rnd numbers were weighted towards one end or another for:
1 rnd 50 addstore.There were no problems found.
*50 *.robage div 51 store
'Average of all random flips
The Ouija bot was to test if the rnd nums could form different words(alright too much watching White Noise that night :) )
' 27 therefore 28 random nums 0 and 27 representing space and period respectivlyI basically did the above many more times to wind up with 10 letters per cycle.
27 rnd 50 store
27 rnd 51 store
*51 100 mult *50 add 70 store
' for a two letter word
No words or ghosts were in evidence at the time, unless they were highly concerned with acronyms. :wacko:
For me this proves DB's randomness works reasonably well and doesn't need improvement.
Oh yeah, Zelos:
Added up a Whimsical section on the wiki if you're interested in making up a Db early history.
