What is _

Postby PkmnQ » February 11th, 2019, 10:19 am

Just ask what is something and get an answer.

Let me start.
WHAT IS AIDAN MODE?! (Apparently it breaks the thread, on the aidan mode testing grounds 3 thread.)

What is the reason for nobody responding to my question? The only reasonable reason would be that they can't find the download either.

I am using it in a .rule file, I assumed it was only the @TABLE section that was causing problems. Here is the full .rule:
@RULE LRW
@TABLE
n_states:4
neighborhood:Moore
symmetries:permute
var n={1,2,3}
var a={0,1,2,3}
var b={0,1,2,3}
var c={0,1,2,3}
var d={0,1,2,3}
var e={0,1,2,3}
var f={0,1,2,3}
var g={0,1,2,3}
var h={0,1,2,3}
0,3,3,0,0,0,0,0,0,2
0,2,2,0,0,0,0,0,0,3
0,1,1,1,0,0,0,0,0,2
0,2,2,2,0,0,0,0,0,1
n,a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,0
@COLORS
1 0 0 255
2 0 255 0
3 255 0 0

It just gives the error "The new rule is not valid in any algorithm.", as if it can't even find the file (which is placed in the rules folder).

Works fine for me.

Protip: You can paste ruletables directly into golly.
Sierpinski triangle generator in that rule
x = 13, y = 16, rule = LRW
2.2B5.2B4$B4.B.B4.B4$2.B7.B$4.B3.B3$4.B3.B2$4.B3.B$5.B.B!
If you're the person that uploaded to Sakagolue illegally, please PM me.
x = 17, y = 10, rule = B3/S23

I tried removing all other rules but it still won't work.
I also changed it to run B1/S but it still won't work.
I think it can't even find the file for some reason.

What is the way to change what a rule table does when no transition is specified assuming there is a way?
I want to make it so that unspecified transitions kill the cell.
I am making a rule with non-totalistic stay rules.
EDIT: I found out how to do it from experimenting with my ruletable.
