Not relevant anymore, i think it's impossible to draw at 60 fps.

Sorry I can't reproduce this. If you see it again please let me know with specific steps to reproduce.

The cell is only drawn (when you keep the left click button held) if you move the cursor at least one pixel.
You probably did this fast enough to make a live cell each generation at 1 gps but not fast enough to make a live cell each generation at 60 gps. To make a live cell each generation at 60 gps, you would have to move the cursor every single frame.

Code: Select all

x = 81, y = 96, rule = LifeHistory

Related bug: When you draw b3o$o3b$o3b$o3b! in Breps-2, it will sometimes become an R rather than butterfly.

I could make a rule in ten seconds flat

So it looks like a butterfly after drawing but becomes an R parent after 1 generation? Also, does the rule have to be Breps-2 or can other rules also trigger the bug?
I like making rules

Yeah, that's right. It seems to ignore one cell in the butterfly, therefore it is actually running b2o$o2b$o2b$o2b!

IDK, I have only tested Breps-2. Sorry for self-promoting.

Which build are you using? There was a bug fixed recently that might have caused the behaviour you're describing but it was fixed in Build 318.
