Re: Golly 3.3b2

In Golly 3.3b2 (and possibly in earlier versions as well), the bottom right corner of the border around each icon in the icon bar and in the scroll bar above it and the box around the selected state are all missing.

Animated pixel art in Golly

587648208755228687.gif A few weeks ago, I had the idea of creating a rule that would allow for the creation of animated pixel art within Golly. The main idea of the rule is to use a 2x2 square of cells in Golly to represent one pixel, with all four pixels sharing the same display colour. In order t...

Not sure. B4a and the survival conditions would probably make it more difficult.

B3aeij4aejrw5-ejkr6-ei78/S3ai4aejrw5-ejkr6-ei78 is pretty interesting on a torus, as the three kinds of stable background interact in various ways.
