I've been having that issue for a long while as well.

Also, in the interests of mobile users, can things that require keybinds to work (such as switching hexagonal grids) also be made toggleable from inside the viewer as options?

Yes I could put them on the menu screen. Which did you have in mind?

A separate subject, while I'm thinking of it: Saka reported a few days ago that he's seeing a wall of Javascript on (all pages of) my weblog now, and no LifeViewer -- but the same articles quoted on the conwaylife.com home page look fine.

I'm not seeing any such problem, and I'm not sure what might be causing it. But one possible difference is that I updated the b3s23life site to Build 259, where the home page is still languishing back at Build 250.

Can anyone else see the problem? Wall of Javascript and no LifeViewer here, working LifeViewer in second article here? Saka will have to provide browser and OS details, I don't know them.

It looks fine to me (Firefox 52.9.0, Debian 10).

in Lifeviewer, when you set the step size to a number n large enough to "overload" (when it starts flashing red), wait a few moments, then set it to something low, like step 1, it still runs at step n.
run this at step 50, 60 gps for 1000 generations then set the step to 1.

Thanks for reporting! This has been fixed and will be in the next released build.

Upon testing it myself, I realized this issue also affects the generations per second.

Build 259 is now live on the Forums and LifeWiki

Please note: you will need to refresh your browser to use the new build

Enhancements since the last released build:
  • General
    • improved elapsed time calculation for multi-generation steps
    • with bounded grids the stats now show cell density rather than births and deaths
    • added colour names to help information
    • aligned R G B values in help information
    • added colour sets for JvN29, Hutton32 and Nobili32
    • initial zoom and fit zoom (but not AutoFit) will snap to integer if zoom is within 1% of an integer
    • removed bounded grid postfix from rule name display
  • UI
    • hotkey "u" toggles NOGUI mode
      • will be ignored if [[ NOGUI ]] defined
    • hotkey "k" copies the current position to the clipboard as script commands
      • #C [[ X 10 Y -5 ZOOM 3 ]]
    • shift and hotkey "k" copies the current position and the view to the clipboard as script commands
      • #C [[ X 5 Y 13 ZOOM 2.33 ]]
      • #C [[ THEME 3 WIDTH 640 HEIGHT 400 ]]
    • hotkey control and "r" now resets the pattern (like Golly) rather than refreshing the browser
    • hotkey shift and Page Up moves to previous help topic
    • hotkey shift and Page Down moves to next help topic
    • fit zoom UI control is now disabled when AutoFit enabled
  • Script commands
    • waypoints now work with step back
    • LOOP no longer resets camera
    • [[ PAUSE ]] script command can now take 0 as an argument for instant camera relocation
Fixes since the last released build:
  • fixed population count for bounded grids
  • Themes without history were causing rendering issues
  • manual step forward for multiple generations no longer bails out early due to time
  • gps control was incorrectly showing 10.0 for 10
  • fixed an issue with Waypoint playback that was causing stuttering
  • fixed a crash when invalid patterns have a bounded grid specification
  • custom colours now work with Generations rule
The updated hotkey map detailing the LifeViewer keyboard controls is here.

Comments, feedback, suggestions and bug reports welcome!

LTL is not complete yet!

Looks good! Playback speed seems a lot more predictable now.

There's now an example of PAUSE 0 use in the line crosser article on the LifeWiki.

... It's working very nicely on my system at least. If people with older computers or on mobile devices could check to see if the animation of such a large pattern causes issues, I could scale back on my animation ambitions a bit if you let me know here.
