comment What video game are these ninjas from?
@murgatroid99 No one is claiming it doesn't follow the game-identification rules. We're claiming it's a plagiarized cross-post from another SE site, two things which are not allowed. This should not have been re-opened.

Ah crap, I took a picture of this a long time ago but forgot to write an answer. I'll add it to this one anyways.

The developer does not maintain that wiki page, random users do. It is not an official source of information any more than this page is.

The last sentence makes no sense. You are conflating multiple issues (the seed to new Random(seed) is only 48-bits, which has nothing to do with "overloading nextLong())

@corsiKa: You are confusing 64-bit output with 64-bit seed. The PRNG will generate many billions of bits before repeating itself, so in a sense, the output is "billions of bits", much more than 64. But the input (seed) is still 48-bits; those 48-bits completely determine what output will be.

@Texenox: No. The input value must be hashed if it's non-numeric (since the seed must be a number), but if numeric inputs were also hashed, you wouldn't be able to recreate random-seed worlds, since hashes are one-way. So the entire hashing discussion is a red-herring.
