Re: Friday Facts #366 - The only way to go fast, is to go well!

So, I don't believe into the "extract methods until you can't do it anymore" mantra. Finding a good balance is still an art. The way I do it is just write the code as long as it is clear, but as soon as a line or block looks complicated and might need a comment, I extract that bit to a me...

Re: Friday Facts #261 - Performance + New player interaction

Thoughts on the tutorial (similarity between user name and topic just a coincidence). It is a long time since I played the tutorial but I remember being frustrated with the 'Tab to continue' thing. I just played the first level again to refresh my memory, and it was still annoying. The tutorial puts...

Re: [0.12.13] Intermittent crash when loading games on Mac

Thanks for taking another look. Yes, that was it. Max threads was set to 6. I must have adjusted it at some stage and forgotten about it. I managed to script starting factorio to get some numbers, using --load-game to load a save: With max threads set to 6: 100 runs, 21 crashes. With max threads set...

Re: [0.12.13] Intermittent crash when loading games on Mac

I upgraded to 0.12.14 (auto-update worked this time :) ) and did some tests to try to get more information. First, I tried loading a save, quitting to the main menu, and reloading. I was able to do this 20 times in a row without a crash. Then, I tried starting the game, loading the same save, quitti...

Thanks for the quick reply, but changing the graphics memory usage to medium does not seem to help.

Here is the log file from the latest crash: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jlyaapjuht54r ... 7.log?dl=0

[0.12.13] Intermittent crash when loading games on Mac

Hello, Thanks for making such a great game. I am getting frequent crashes when loading a game (about 20% of the time). The problem is intermittent, and does not seem to depend on the save, so the same save will most likely load the second time. This has been happening since version 0.12.11. I have a...
