Lets separate the rules with "&". Im pretty sure it is not used for anything.

What is stopping you exactly? Go to Golly's Help > Online Archives > Very Large Patterns and click on "Caterpillar". It's an .mc.gz file -- compressed macrocell -- so the algorithm will be HashLife by default.Gustone wrote:I want it on hashlife

Well, your mileage may vary, of course. My system only takes a couple of minutes to get through 270 frames, and ends up wanting to use 3.2GB. It's only after you've pre-calculated all the frames that you'll be able to see a smooth animation.Gustone wrote:OH THE LAGdvgrn wrote:run for 270 ticks
Seriously! It gets slower and slower each frame!
And it cant get past 49 for some reason.
What is your maximum memory setting in Golly? If it's set at 500MB, try setting it to 3.5GB. Going too close to your total memory does cause trouble sometimes, but it's worth an experiment.Gustone wrote:I have 4gb ram

Hmm, yes, the new pattern might be a little bit better. I somehow hadn't noticed before that the version checked in to Golly has something a little bit wrong with it. Each record-holding longest line is followed by another line of the same length, a little bit too soon.GUYTU6J wrote:A humble suggestion: we can use this as the infinite-binary-ruler-generator pattern...?

This is a good point, and I definitely ought to dig around in Golly's code and see if I can implement it somehow.
