This is a tool primarily designed to make it quick and easy to get the static image for a pattern infobox in the wiki. The wiki likes PNG files.

Is there a tool to do this with bigger image sizes? It only goes up to 512x512 and I just want a quick way to convert an RLE into a PNG file.
I enjoy self-supporting spaceships

Code: Select all

x = 11, y = 14, rule = B3/S23

To be clear, the max. image size is 512x512, not the bounding box.

I didn't want to have larger images to avoid them being uploaded to the wiki.

You might want to try giffer.pay or giffer.lua. They support arbitrarily large gifs(can be stationary, so you can convert them to png)
Nothing to apgsearch? Try b38s23/C1!

If you need someone to apgsearch, or if you want to search for an explosive rule, contact me on discord!

You can also do similar in LifeViewer:

Code: Select all

x = 8, y = 12, rule = B3/S23
b2o2b2o$3b2o$3b2o$obo2bobo$o6bo2$o6bo$b2o2b2o$2b4o2$3b2o$3b2o!

Use Settings->Pattern->Save Image (hotkey O).
