Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

Pasting in some rules causes LifeViewer to freeze It's because: the rule specified only has 18 states (0 to 17) you're using PASTEMODE 7 (which is OR) and you're pasting state 16 over state 2 and (16 OR 2) = 18 State 18 is illegal so LifeViewer gets upset at that point. I'll have LifeViewer ignore ...

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

1- Is the LifeViewer documentation available somewhere online, rather than scrolling through it all inside the application itself? Maybe it's a good idea to put a version of those scrollable Help files in the LifeWiki LifeViewer article. You can copy the Help information from LifeViewer to the clip...

Also can B0 HROT be supported on an unbounded grid (or at least rendered in a way that stops the background from strobing)?

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

Yes but not sure when. Playing with Golly at the moment... super...

Just noticed that autofit works inconsistently between usual rules and their history versions AutoFit will fit to the non-zero state cells in the pattern: #C [[ AUTOFIT ]] x = 3, y = 3, rule = Life 3o$o$bo! For rules that support it you can optionally include the (cosmetic) history states also by t...

Fixed, thanks. Note Golly doesn't support rule names with spaces, colons or other special characters so (although LifeViewer allows it) it's probably not a great idea to include them in alias names.

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

New resizeable LifeViewer is here. Would much appreciate any feedback!

I'm aware there's an issue with menu controls overlapping if the window is made too narrow and the Settings button not appearing if the initial window height is too small. I'll fix in due course.

Re: Golly 3.4

Based on my investigations: In Golly the HashLife algo and QuickLife algo use a different y-order when processing rules that fit in a 3x3 cell block: Moore, von Neumann, Hexagonal, Elementary Wolfram and MAP. For von Neumann and Hexagonal a mask is applied to remove the unneeded cells but the algo i...

When on a triangular rule and zoomed out more than 4x, can the grid be vertically stretched somewhat so that everything doesn't look super flat?

Re: Golly 3.4

It looks like the bug is specific to MAP rules and when saving such patterns in a .mc file, or maybe when loading those files. (The reason Undo seems to be the trigger is because generation changes are saved in temporary files.) I'm not familiar with the MAP code, or the macrocell code, so I'll hav...

Thanks for the report. Advance Selection only currently works for 2-state Life-like rules. I should probably disable it for the other rule types until it's implemented.
