This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

I found something strange two different inputs have the same result, where i think the second one is wrong :
1) Hex C2B60000 > Bin 11000010101101100000000000000000 > Dec -91
2) Hex C11FFFFC > Bin 11000001000111111111111111111100 > Dec -91 But must be -10 !!
