Rust Life Search bug

Post by May13 » December 29th, 2021, 4:10 am

It seems for me that feature "Known cells" is broken since December 25.
The program does not recognize any information entered in the "Known cells" box.
How to get this bug:
  1. Load website
  2. Press SETTINGS
  3. Input 15bo! in the "Known cells" box
  4. Press APPLY SETTINGS
Previously RLE was translated to JSON.
But now nothing happens. After changing another parameter 15bo! disappears.
Can anyone else reproduce this bug? I'm using Google Chrome.
The latest version of hex-gliders.db have 542 gliders from OT hexagonal rules. Let's find more!
My CA (13 rules)
My scripts: new-glider.py, nbsearch2a.py, collector.py v0.2

I also have that bug, in both Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Safari on mobile works for me.

Edit: What a nice waste of 2^8th post

AlephAlpha already fixed bug with "Known cells".
Unrelated bug: I can't find this spaceship:

Code: Select all

x = 2, y = 2, rule = MAPERYXfhZofugWaH7oaIDogBZofuhogOiAaIDogIAAgAAWaH7oaIDogGiA6ICAAIAAaIDogIAAgACAAIAAAAAAAA
2o$2o!
rlifesrc immediately returns "No more result" for any diagonal velocity (x,x)c/p (x>0) in this rule.
Edit: I used diagonal search order.

It works for me. Specifically, I specified a 4x4 box, period = 4, dx = 1, dy = 1. The search returned a block immediately.

Unrelated bug: The display glitches for very large bounding boxes (at least on mobile).
How to reproduce: Start a 16 x 1000 search for anything (like a c/4o). Wait until the search progresses past where you can see without scrolling, and pause. Scroll down and the cells are displayed as question marks, although they have been determined and copy/paste works.

I found a strange error while trying to search for (-1,2)c/5 spaceship.
  1. Period=5
  2. dx=-1
  3. dy=2
  4. Diagonal width=10
  5. APPLY SETTIGS
  6. See screenshot below (message from browser's console)
I know that p5 knightships are impossible in Life, but the same bug happens with B3678/S34678 (Day and Night), B3acijy4-a5cjkr6-in78/S2n3-c4-aijz5-jy6-k (ShipWorld), B3/S346 and B256/S4568.
I quote my previous post in case someone did not pay attention to the edit:

Yes, I can search for (-1,2)c/5 spaceship. But still can't search for c/4 diagonal in MAP. (rule=MAP..., Period=4, dx=1, dy=1, diagonal search order).
Partial in ShipWorld:

Code: Select all

x = 100, y = 100, rule = B3acijy4-a5cjkr6-in78/S2n3-c4-aijz5-jy6-k

Bump. I noticed a bug for a long time.
The first time you select an option other than default in any of these settings:
  • Transformation
  • Symmetry
  • Search order
  • Choice of state for unknown cells
When you click the button "APPLY SETTINGS", new option is applied, but the default option is still displayed.
However, after the second edit of a setting, the bug disappears for that setting.
This bug is not critical, but a little annoying.
I found this bug using Google Chrome browser version 114. I haven't tested other browsers yet.
The latest version of hex-gliders.db have 542 gliders from OT hexagonal rules. Let's find more!
