    Hi guys just me with a small but helpful tool for you guys here at XPG

    Now as you know here at XPG we host a variety of competitions for our awesome members
    ranging from 48 hour trials to Xbox360 Games and more

    nearly all of the competitions involve picking a number between 1 and whatever
    and all winners of these competitions are decided using a third party website's random number generator

    So I thought wouldn't it nice nice if we had our own XPG Random Number Generator
    that we could use in conjunction with our competitions

    And here it is! [​IMG]

    The tool features
    • A Minimum Number Box
    • A Maximum Number Box
    • A Number counter (To keep track of how many times the generate button has been clicked)
    • The Time And Date For Time Stamp
    • Links to XPG
    • Screen Capture Option: To Capture/View And Save A Screenshot Of The Result
    Main

    -------------------------------------------------------

    Directions for use:

    1. In the minimum Number box enter the minimum number you would like to set

    2. Next in the Maximum Number box enter the maximum number you would like to set

    3. Click the Generate button

    The tool will then generate a random number
    between the minimum and maximum parameters you have set

    4. Click the Capture Screen button to take a screenshot of your desktop and the tool

    the Screenshot window will then open and show you a preview of the screenshot

    5. Click the Save Image button to save the image as a .PNG file to a location of your choosing

    Enjoy! :)

    This is spot on Cavey, will help out with the competitions that use random numbers to pick winners and hopefully provide some proof ;)

    Screen cap is a nice touch.

    A cool addition would be to be able to skip numbers (if no one picked it). Nice tool though. + rep

    Thanks very much mate :p

    thanks mate your welcome
    it generates the number by its self, it does not use a third party to generate for it ;)

    *Edit*
    I just realized what you were asking :Facepalm: :LOL:
    I don't know much about the algorithm side of things mate so couldn't tell you tbh
