Lifeviewer freezing temporarily

Post by Sarah » March 4th, 2022, 12:44 pm

When I cleared everything but this pattern in a large soup, when I try to run it, it freezes for a few seconds, and the generation doesn't advance. I can't show you the soup because I can't go back before I cleared.

Code: Select all

x = 11, y = 17, rule = 3458/37/4
8.2A$2.C2A3.2A$.B.B2A$.C3A$2.B5$9.2A$9.2A2$3A$3A$BC2A$.ABC$.C!
Edit: while the pattern is stuck, both the undo and the redo button become grayed out.
Edit 2: If I make the generation tick speed faster, it unfreezes faster.
I'm just chilling around the forums.

I'll need more information:
  • How big was the soup?
  • Had you run the soup for several generations before clearing?
  • How did you clear everything apart from this pattern?
  • What device were you running LifeViewer on?

Like at least 100x100
Yes, and did some undoing and redoing to find the reaction
I dragged a box(no auto-shrink) over the pattern and clicked the button that clears everything outside of a box
A chromebook
