Re: [0.17.58] Screen flickers with other window in foreground

I am using Server 2016 which is still supported with the newest version being 1607, as it happens I am downloading a patch called 2019-07 ... right now. (I use Win Server as I use deduplication, Hyper-V and also because I like not having to install upgrades which broke things for me twice already on...

[0.17.58] Screen flickers with other window in foreground

Recently I realized that Factorio starts to flicker as soon as another window or even a small Discord notification is in the foreground. The flickering is just a completely black window intead of what factorio should usually show. The frequency ist about 5-10Hz. In the start screen it is only showin...

Re: Friday Facts #231 - Belt compression & Crash log uploading

Do you have an affected Ryzen processor yourself for running tests on? Nope, we were thinking of possibly getting one. But the issue is still very rare and we will most probably not be able to trigger the crash on our computer. Last time we got and AMD computer with weird hardware we did a few test...

Re: [0.16.25] Belt decompresses after double splitter.

The left-most 0 is because there's nothing in front of that splitter - it can't push forward - therefore, doesn't it make sense that anything behind that can't push forward either? (It's backed up). You are just looking at one input and one output in this consideration but you have to look at both ...

Re: [16.25] Splitter input priority not working with two outputs

in an output belt that's already incapable of meeting the demand. I'm not 100% sure if we are talking about the same thing here. Both output belts can be filled to maximum compression from just the prioritized input belt (as long as it is also compressed). Which can actually be achieved by just rem...

Thanks for the explaination. Maybe displaying something like "25 to 50" (or whatever it is) would avoid the confusion.

[kovarex] [0.16.25] Splitter input priority not working with two outputs

I noticed that input priority on splitters doesn't work if two outputs are connected. GIF.gif Both inputs are compressed red belts, both outputs are yellow belts. One workaround ist placing two splitters behind each other with just one belt connecting them. It gets more complicated if the peak throu...

The detection was changed from "is a chain signal reserved" to "was the last signal passed a chain signal". Are you talking about the detection if a train is disallowed to repath? So if the described condition is true, repathing is not allowed? This would be awesome :-), finally evereything should ...

Maybe it is already fixed but just for new splitters? This one was probably set to be a priority splitter in 16.20.

[kovarex] [0.16.24] Pririty-Splitter not putting items on empty lane

No mods used. I just stumbled upon a splitter issue: a splitter has one input belt with two full lanes and two output belts. The output belt with priority is blocked completely, the one without priority however just gets items on one of its lanes. It can be fixed by: - rebuilding the input belt - re...

I'm seeing the effect with something I am working on, but much more pronounced. Would you be so kind as to do the effort to blueprint your layout? From the video I cannot see the creeping and also cannot rule out the circuit network being at fault. It's easy to see as soon as you spot what to look ...
