Problem with rules

Postby gameoflifemaniac » July 15th, 2017, 12:38 pm

Tried to move the saved rules file that I could have always access to it in Golly, but now I moved it in such a way that no rule works! HELP!

Now I have a new problem. It started when I went to File Formats. I pasted in a rule whose icon looks like this:
Now whatever rule in QuickLife/Hash life I choose, I can't change the icons to their default; with grey background (or black), white cells and black icons with white circles. Help!

But how to change the icons back to white circles?
And when I open a pattern, it changes back to the blue spherical icons with white bg.

Problem solved! When I pasted in the rule from the File Formats page, but with black and white colors and without the @ICONS part, everything was great again!

A better solution would be to delete B3_S23.rule from your rules folder (you can see the path to your rules folder in Preferences > Control). If you want to change an algorithm's default colors then use Preferences > Color.

Preferences > Color didn't work. Btw this forum is dead so don't post any new posts.

If B3_S23.rule still exists in your rules folder then it overrides the default colors (but only for that particular rule).

Btw this forum is dead so don't post any new posts.

Huh?
