Re: bubblegum's lv bugs site

There seem to be a few instances where LifeViewer complains about a "u" character in the pattern This has been fixed. Thanks for reporting! Also for some reason if the load pattern feature actually works it makes all the buttons and text and sliders small I can't reproduce this. Please let me know ...

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

I believe I've finally found a way to consistently reproduce that massively annoying bug with the viewer jumping to the tapped position and becoming permanently stuck there that I've been experiencing for months. iPad Air 2, iPad OS 13.5 Build 523 just published may fix this. I don't have an iPad s...

Re: bubblegum's lv bugs site

When copying the pattern into the clipboard, selecting from top-left to bottom-right works. However, selecting from any other corner and copying to clipboard results in something like x = -5, y = 7, rule = B3/S23 ! This has been fixed. Note it was only an issue when copying to the external clipboar...

Thanks. When you first launch it please press "T" and tell me what the timing display says (something like "60fps 10%").

Selecting from top-left to bottom-right and nudging it works fine. Selecting from any other corner deletes the selected pattern instead.
This has been fixed. Thanks for reporting!

Can you modify hexagonal rotation so it's 60 deg instead of 90?
It's on the backlog but I don't know when I'll get to it. Thanks for the request.

But is it that "PASTE rle" only understands 2-state rles?
For [R]History rules [[ PASTE ]] only uses 2-states. For RuleTree/RuleTable and PCA rules [[ PASTE ]] uses all states.
The [R]History support may improve in the future but it's not planned at the moment.

You need to hard-refresh the browser to get the new version. On Chrome it's Ctrl-F5.

How do I simulate the repeat script mentioned in User:GUYTU6J/Repeating_recreation with lifeviewer commands?
Use the new [[ PASTEDELTA X Y ]] command:

Code: Select all

x = 0, y = 0, rule = B3/S23

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

The Sticky rule seems to not be displaying a viewer option despite its wiki page having both @TABLE and @TREE sections. It's because both sections in the rule were invalid so LifeViewer ignored the rule. The @TREE section was missing some entries. The @TABLE section had a syntax LifeViewer didn't l...

PatternViewer glitches with embedded Hexa rule files I'm not sure what you mean by embedded.

Re: Help me finish this c/8 search

I still regularly get crashes on the original qfind-c8.cpp with multiple threads. I believe it may be because in function success() both srows and ssrows are grown with realloc() . However I think that memory is shared between the threads and it's possible that realloc() might move the memory block ...
