These should both contain the same pattern but try pasting them into the viewer.html box and see what happens
The error message is correct. [R]History is not supported with LtL/HROT.

Re: Help me finish this c/8 search

I'll probably run through each of the pieces to catch all of those short "push" partials and run them to completion, just to be safe. I doubt it will be very difficult or take much time, so I'm not too worried. I wonder, is anyone still stuck on particularly long-running pieces like I am with piece...

ALso, multistate patterns with no specified colours still seem to use pure black for the background instead of grey like golly does, is this intended?
Yes: LING

Is this what the advance colour option was referring to? I've seen the advance colour option but have never actually seen what it's been used for.

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

There seems to be a bug in the Ctrl+Space functionality, though -- the selected area jumps downward a sizable distance, and once the selection is cleared, the evolved pattern overlays whatever is down there. Ctrl+Space is still "experimental" (aka I didn't get round to finishing it before something...

using the nudge option on a fully selected pattern seems to erase the entire pattern
If the pattern gets too close to the grid boundary then it will be deleted.

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

Hexagons should probably be squished downwards slightly. They're not completely regular True but they need to be like that for various reasons. When all cells die on this strobing rule, it stops strobing, is this intentional? a) I don't like strobing and b) Yes it's intentional - all patterns stop ...

I switched to Cygwin64 on Windows 10 and have had no more crashes. I'm running it on two desktop machines: One has an i5 quad core and the other an i7 quad core hyperthreaded. I'm running four threads on both. The quad core is at 100% cpu and the quad core HT at 57%.
