1. Copy the pattern below
2. Paste into Golly (I'm using 2.8 )
3. Turn off gridlines, press play and hold F, look at the center.
4. It looks like a knightship! Probably. At least it looked like it for me.

Code: Select all

``````x = 11, y = 53, rule = B3/S23

It took me longer than I am willing to admit to figure out what was happening...

Sidenote: A Gosper Glider Gun in Golly on Hyperspeed mode alternates between a few different illusions: one where the whole stream of gliders is a big blur, a few where the gliders turn into random blobs, and one where the gliders look really slow.

Pressing and holding F doesn't seem to do anything on my computer. It centers the pattern once and that's it.

It should be like the autofit feature...maybe an outdated version of golly?
