Is it still available somewhere? I'm after the SVG version of the above.

Re: Async auto save in multiplayer but not in singleplayer?? Why??

A workaround is turning off compression in config.ini - this speeded my autosaves up noticeably...

What is load game name unicode sort order?

I'd like to replicate how Factorio sorts the savegame in the Load screen - any ideas? This is how Windows 10 command line sorts some unicode test saves I made... a LATIN SMALL LETTER A 0x0061.zip z LATIN SMALL LETTER Z 0x007A.zip ͱ GREEK SMALL LETTER HETA 0x0371.zip ϻ GREEK SMALL LETTER SAN 0x03FB.z...

Re: Misleading error source reported for styles

Thanks Darkfrei, but I am actually wondering how to avoid mod A being disabled when the error is actually in unrelated mod B?

Misleading error source reported for styles

"StyleTestA" mod correctly implements a style, and allows the game to load... local style = data.raw["gui-style"].default style.StyleTestA = { type = "button_style", parent = "frame_action_button", width = 66 } "StyleTestB" mod has a style error, and Factorio doesn't load ... local style = data.raw[...

Control+Shift+Alt+F can't be mapped on Windows 10

Ctrl-Shift-Alt-F is getting swallowed by Windows 10 v1903, so can't be used as a shortcut.
What does “Ctrl+Alt+Shift+F” key combination in Windows 10 Pro (Version 1903) do?

No action required - just hoping to save someone a bit of head-scratching!

There is a hidden config setting you can change to allow it still (in config.ini)

From LuaGameScript.auto_save ... Saves will be named _autosave-*name* when provided. Could we please have ability to remove the "_autosave-" prefix when a name is provided?

[0.18.24] choose-elem-button missing some signals

signal-everything, signal-anything, signal-each are missing from LuaGuiElement.add→choose-elem-button→elem_type=signal

I don't remember if they were missing in the past or not.

Re: LuaRendering.draw_on_map

I would use this instead of (or in addition to) chart tags to combine symbols and shapes at runtime rather than hard code them in numerous sprites. Currently I only need 12 sprites to display required combinations, but adding one extra symbol would require ~60 sprites! I think it would also be cool ...

I was reminded recently that in general Factorio expects a premultiplied alpha colour - there is a pre-mult function in core/lualib/util.lua I often use.
