Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

Hexagons should probably be squished downwards slightly. They're not completely regular True but they need to be like that for various reasons. When all cells die on this strobing rule, it stops strobing, is this intentional? a) I don't like strobing and b) Yes it's intentional - all patterns stop ...

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

Identify doesn't seem to count dying states when calculating the pattern's bounding box True, this is on the backlog. Can an in-viewer button of sorts be added for closing the identify table? Yes, done. Can the ability to view square grid patterns on a hexagonal grid be readded? No since that's not...

Re: Help me finish this c/8 search

After thinking about Amdahl's Law I did some testing on running different numbers of threads vs different number of processes.

Re: Help me finish this c/8 search

I switched to Cygwin64 on Windows 10 and have had no more crashes. I'm running it on two desktop machines: One has an i5 quad core and the other an i7 quad core hyperthreaded. I'm running four threads on both. The quad core is at 100% cpu and the quad core HT at 57%.

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

For lifeviewer thumbnails which expand/create a popup when clicked on, is there currently or can there be added a way to format the thumbnail independently of the opened viewer? No. Can an option be added that rounds off the corners of cells instead of having them be perfectly square shaped? No, bu...

Perhaps as part of a bigger piece of work to improve handling of non-square grids in general. For example hexagonal or triangular selection...

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

Almost certaintly known but identify doesn't work properly for hex or tri patterns due to it only considering a square grid True. I'll hide the Mod value. (Can the identify table be made to have borders like other interface items do? It's kinda hard to see where it ends on most themes.) No I think ...

Re: Launch LifeViewer from Golly - showinviewer.lua

The only thing that would have made it a little more user-friendly is if showinviewer.lua could have created the "lifeviewer" subfolder, if it didn't already exist. That would allow the full path to be copied out of the pop-up HTML, and right-click > Save As... could put lv-plugin.js right where it...

Re: Pattern viewer for forum threads

... it would also be nice to have 'show in Golly' in LifeViewer. You would be able to do it by just having a 'Download RLE' button, since users could then tell their browser to open downloaded .rles in Golly. This would be too awkward plus my browser won't open rle files in Golly. Just use copy Ctr...
