  1. Iirc you don't need the other context garbage after the __EVENTVALIDATION. I think the important params are the sessionId cookie, __EVENTTARGET, __VIEWSTATE, and __EVENTVALIDATION.   Just to compare... these are the headers I used and am getting a desired response back: Host: www.entropedia.info Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded Cookie: ASP.NET_SessionId=abc123; Content-Length: 1795   This is the request body (no linebreaks):  __EVENTTARGET=abc123&__VIEWSTATE=abc123&__EVENTVALIDATION=abc123   Fill in the right values for the 4 params obv. I think sending the cookieId as a header instead of the actual cookie will help. Not sure if Content-Length matters but FIddler auto-appends it.   request.Headers.Add("Cookie", "ASP.NET_SessionId=abc123");
  2. I played around with the requests in Fiddler and it looks like the server validates the session cookie as well as the __EVENTVALIDATION before sending back the response (just my best guess). I shot off some requests with exact headers and __EVENTTARGET, __VIEWSTATE, and __EVENTVALIDATION parameters and got back the 'All' list. Removing the sessionId cookie header or any of those params returns an error or the default page.   If you are desperate, you can try sending a request to the page, parsing the above parameters from the response, then resend the request. I'm not 100% sure if the session cookie would go through the header correctly, but it's worth a shot. There may be a way to return the markup through querystrings (would be easiest) but I haven't run across it.   Hopefully someone smarter than I can chime in with an actual solution.   Found a relevant StackOverflow link.
  3. I felt the same way for a few iterations and wasn't sure if it was just confirmation bias or a wonky random number generator or something. I'd like to think the pulls are statistically legit and it's just that busted pools stick out more in my mind, but mistakes happen...   If anyone's familiar with javascript (or programming in general) the logic is all public to look at in the bpsim.js file, or we can go over it via PM or something. I'm always open to fixing bugs/refining the code.
  4. I took a stab at an html/javascript version that might be easier than using the command line. Just download the zip, extract it, and open the bpsim.html file in your browser.   https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B-QmEG4IG1m7Y2hwLXZkUEhjQkk/edit   I'm not a math whiz, so if Allen could verify the math that'd be cool. Here's the algorithm I guessed at for slot 1, if it's wrong could someone point out where?: [spoiler] I got the sum of the weights of the Xyz's + 47 (1 for each non-Xyz rare) which comes out to 73.6667. Then I take a random number r from [0, 73.6667) and run logic similar to this: If r < 4, return Pearl Else if r < 8, return Utopia Else if r < 13.3333, return Grenosaurus ... Else if r ends up being greater than the sum of xyz weights, pick a random non-xyz rare.   When the 10 packs are done being generated, I check the rares and if there are more than 2 of any rare in those 10 packs, I rerun the whole generator. [/spoiler]     If it sucks, sorry, and I'll go back to lurking again. ):

    If you meant how many of each, each pack comes with 3 gold rares and the rest common.

    That's probably what he meant by "etc." (:

    Just finished it as well. The ending was appropriate, but I thought it was going to go in a different direction. Also, any thoughts on the epilogue? Man what a ride. Homura alone pretty much solidified this show as one of my top favorite anime.
  8. Mahou Shojo Madoka Magica

    That's what I was alluding to. With the earthquake and tsunami happening, it would make sense that they would delay the show when it's been dealing with said post-apocalyptic visuals.
  9. Mahou Shojo Madoka Magica

    My favorite show this year so far; especially after episode 10. All I can say about 11 and 12 airing is FINALLY. (though i can see why the delay might've been necessary, what with the disasters and all)
