Re: [0.17.28] [Linux] Control key not recognized

Found the "culprit": disabling "press Control twice to locate pointer" in Gnome Tweak Tool allows Factorio to see Control key presses again. IMHO Factorio should be able to see it regardless, but it is a workaround for now, and perhaps would allow the devs to reproduce the problem and solve it. ploc...

Re: [0.17.28] [Linux] Control key not recognized

Last time I played was around 0.17.4, and back then it worked perfectly.
Had no issues like that in 0.16 or before.

[Oxyd] [0.17.28] [Linux] Control key not recognized

As the title says, seems like the game refuses to recognize the Control key. Key bindings are all on default, and I'm using bog standard QWERTY layout, but no matter what I do it's as if I never press/hold the Control button. Even trying to re-map actions there is no difference whether I hold Contro...

Re: [FEATURE] VRAM requirement is not sane

I believe I posted about this a long time ago, but Factorio is definitely in the "uncanny valley" of having a high VRAM requirements with otherwise pretty low GPU needs. GPUs like an Nvidia 1050 or AMD 560 have way more "power" than Factorio actually needs, but only 2GB of VRAM. I wonder if some cle...

Re: [16.0] Bad performance/low FPS with 2GB or less VRAM

Factorio has stumbled into the "uncanny valley" of needing very little GPU power, but quite a lot of VRAM... Anything above a GTX1050 / RX560 is probably massive overkill for Factorio, but you really do need >2GB, which mostly means a more expensive GPU (lower-end GPUs with >2GB VRAM exist, but they...

Re: [kovarex] [0.15.37] Early station wait penalty

Re: Version 0.15.38

Could be nice to hear when we will see .16 release. At least a month. Or dev's thinks it's a bad idea to announce until it's 100% ready? I don't think they will publish an estimated release date until it's very close, as there is too much room for error and potential for disappointment. That said, ...

They have no way of accessing your save files - but they will probably be indispensable for diagnosing or solving this issue.
I suggest you upload your save file :)

Re: Train pathing through station

Could there be a signalling issue with the part of the track aside the station?
What happens if you completely break the station part off? Do you get any "No Path" errors?
It may help to upload your save file, as it is hard to see all the details just form the screenshot.

Re: Fractional/rounding glitches?

More precisely - if its binary representation isn't finite.
For example, 1/5 = 0.2, which has a finite representation in base 10. However, in base 2 it is 0.00110011..., so it can still not be represented accurately in a binary floating point number (=the sane way computers handle non-integers)

Re: Symptoms of a slow server?

There seem to be a lot of messages like "Device reset internal" - I don't know what they mean, but that doesn't sound healthy... There are also lots of latency changes - it was reported in the past that Factorio can sometimes be too optimistic in setting the latency, setting it to a value too low, r...

Re: I wish I had the money.

Interesting - this is on their website as well. I've heard practically nothing about the price at 1.0, and I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if it stayed at $20 after 1.0. I think it is pretty reasonable to assume the price will increase. When I bought the game ~2.5 years ago it was only 13$...

Re: Why pure water able to kill human ?

This is all about demineralized water, as in - pure H2O. Tap water, as well as water in rivers, streams, aquifers etc. always have dissolved minerals.
The only way to get deminarlized water is to condense steam.

So yeah, any natural source of water is OK in this sense.

Re: Why pure water able to kill human ?

Osmosis. Water (and other liquids) tend to equalize soluble amount between two chambers separated by a permeable membrane. This means if you have two containers of water separated by something like a cell lining or human skin - water will flow from the chamber with less minerals/salts to the one wit...

[0.15.37] CTD when changing auto-trash slider as tech finish

Not entirely sure this is indeed the cause, but I was trying to change the slider of an autotrash slot just as a technology research finished, and the game promptly crashed to desktop.
Attached is the log file.
