Re: How to get the codes for patterns?

On lifeviewer, click the "Sync" button first to turn enable copying to the external clipboard. After that, just Ctrl+C as usual and the RLE will be in your clipboard. Ordinarily, if a pattern hasn't started running yet, or if you hit R to reset to the T=0 version of the pattern, Ctrl+C will work fi...

Re: Thread for homepage article suggestions/contributions

... it'd be nice if LifeViewer had configurable hot keys but that's probably asking for too much! I'll put it on the backlog. It's part of a bigger piece of work around user preferences (that I've not got to yet). While I think of it, is there any way to put LifeViewer in full screen mode? Not curr...

I can't reproduce it. Do you see that behaviour in other browsers?
No.
Then it's most likely a Chrome bug, not a LifeViewer issue.

The pattern advances sometimes only after I move my mouse after I click. Which platform and browser are you using? Google Chrome 83.0.4103.116 64-bit. On Windows? The viewer runs twice as slow for the first pattern launched after loading a page. Also this, which wasn't fixed since an eternity. 30fp...

Do you have a detailed specification of the format?

Code: Select all

=====Rule Format=====
The rule format used by CoordCA is comprised of 3 parts, separated by underscores (_).
What's the maximum range permitted?

Also, this should be explosive according to CAViewer (I am very sure the algorithm in CAViewer is correct) and CoordCA. This doesn't look correct. The rule should be isotropic but its behaving like a non-isotropic rule. These should be fixed now. Press hard refresh your browser and try the patterns...

The % operator is not doing what you expect. When the value is negative it won't wrap it around. -1 % 20 is not 19, it's -1.

the LifeViewer alias table does not show the rulestrings wholly if they are too long, for instance those MAP strings. I've made some improvements to this.
