Viewer bug

Post by Gamedziner » June 16th, 2016, 6:16 pm

Upon trying to show this 8-cell predecessor of the pulsar:

Code: Select all

1o3bo$2ob2o$o3bo
It said this was an invalid pattern:

Code: Select all

o3bo$2ob2o$o3bo
My only guess as to why this happens is that it has something to do with starting with an "o" (without a number), since it works just fine when starting with a "b":

Code: Select all

bo3bo$b2ob2o$bo3bo

Code: Select all

x = 81, y = 96, rule = LifeHistory

This has been fixed and will be in the next released build. Test case is here. Thanks for reporting!
